The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of fentanyl matrix by assessing patients' satisfaction when administrating fentanyl matrix, a background pain treatment, and a breakthrough pain treatment to lung cancer patients who complain of pain. Fentanyl matrix is designed to deliver medication at a nearly constant amount per unit time into the body through the skin for 3 days (72 hours).
This study is open-label, single-arm, multicenter, prospective study to evaluate the usefulness of fentanyl matrix (fentanyl transdermal patch-type system) by assessing patient satisfaction when administrating fentanyl matrix (a background pain treatment, and a breakthrough pain treatment) for patients with lung cancer for 21 days. Fentanyl transdermal patch-type system is designed to deliver medication at a nearly constant amount per unit time into the body through the skin for 3 days (72 hours). Studies about transdermal fentanyl have found that it had analgesic effects on malignant pain, and most patients receiving the medication preferred fentanyl because they experienced less constipation. Safety assessments will include adverse event monitoring, vital signs, laboratory work. starting with 12.5g/h or 25g/h of fentanyl matrix transdermally at the investigator's discretion and flexible dose depending the patient's pain relief for 3 weeks

A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
