  Purpose

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of aminocamptothecin in treating patients with stage III or stage IV non-small cell lung cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Study the effectiveness of aminocamptothecin in treating patients with stage III or stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. [ Time Frame: 120 hour continuous infusion once a week for 2 weeks, followed by 1 week of rest. Patients are assessed after every 2 courses of therapy. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 19
Study Start Date: January 1998
Study Completion Date: June 2001
Primary Completion Date: April 2001 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: aminocamptothecin colloidal dispersion
    120 hour continuous infusion of aminocamptothecin colloidal dispersion (AC/CD) once a week for 2 weeks, followed by 1 week of rest. Patients are assessed after every 2 courses of therapy. Treatment with aminocamptothecin continues indefinitely if there is tumor shrinkage or stable disease and no significant toxicity is experienced. Patients are followed every 3 months.
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine whether aminocamptothecin colloidal dispersion (AC/CD) administered as a 120 hour weekly infusion is an effective treatment for advanced non-small cell lung cancer. II. Observe any toxicities associated with this treatment in this patient population.

OUTLINE: Patients receive a 120 hour continuous infusion of aminocamptothecin colloidal dispersion (AC/CD) once a week for 2 weeks, followed by 1 week of rest. Patients are assessed after every 2 courses of therapy. Treatment with aminocamptothecin continues indefinitely if there is tumor shrinkage or stable disease and no significant toxicity is experienced. Patients are followed every 3 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 19-36 patients will be accrued for this study.
