RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Dimethylxanthenone acetic acid may stop the growth of small cell lung cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Giving paclitaxel and carboplatin together with dimethylxanthenone acetic acid may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects of giving paclitaxel and carboplatin together with dimethylxanthenone acetic acid and to see how well they work in treating patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer.
- To assess the 24-week (6 months) progression-free survival of patients with extensive stage small cell lung cancer treated with paclitaxel, carboplatin, and dimethylxanthenone acetic acid.
- To assess efficacy and safety of this regimen in these patients.
- To evaluate predictive molecular markers for gene expression analyses, serum proteomics, and pharmacogenomics. (exploratory)
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours, carboplatin IV over 30 minutes, and dimethylxanthenone acetic acid IV over 20 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Blood and tissue samples may be collected periodically for predictive molecular markers for gene expression analysis, plasma proteomics, and pharmacogenomics.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 6 months.
Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

To evaluate the effectiveness and tolerability of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with weekly paclitaxel in combination with weekly carboplatin area under curve 2 followed by anthracycline chemotherapy.
This study was performed to assess the efficacy and feasibility of definitive chemoradiotherapy consisting of weekly doses of combined paclitaxel and carboplatin concurrent with radiation therapy, fol...
Homologous recombination defects in BRCA1/2-mutated tumors result in sensitivity to poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors, which interfere with DNA damage repair. Veliparib, a potent PARP inhi...
Hybridization of a nucleic acid sample to a very large set of oligonucleotide probes, which are attached to a solid support, to determine sequence or to detect variations in a gene sequence or expression or for gene mapping.
ACETIC ACID or acetic acid esters substituted with one or more CHLORINE atoms.
MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques used in the diagnosis of disease. Included are such techniques as IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION of chromosomes for CYTOGENETIC ANALYSIS; OLIGONUCLEOTIDE ARRAY SEQUENCE ANALYSIS of gene expression patterns in disease states; identification of pathogenic organisms by analysis of species specific DNA sequences; and detection of mutations with POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION.
The expression of a gene in an abnormal place, or at an abnormal time in an organism. Ectopic Gene Expression is often induced artificially by genetic techniques.
A form of gene interaction whereby the expression of one gene interferes with or masks the expression of a different gene or genes. Genes whose expression interferes with or masks the effects of other genes are said to be epistatic to the effected genes. Genes whose expression is affected (blocked or masked) are hypostatic to the interfering genes.
