Standard Therapy Given With or Without Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Recruitment status was Active, not recruiting
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. It is not known whether giving chemotherapy in addition to standard therapy is a more effective treatment for lung cancer.
PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of standard therapy given with or without combination chemotherapy in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
Drug: mitomycin C
Drug: vinblastine sulfate
Drug: vinorelbine tartrate
Procedure: conventional surgery
Radiation: radiation therapy
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Major Randomised Trial to Determine the Value of Cisplatin-Based Chemotherapy For All Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer|
|Study Start Date:||October 1995|
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess whether the addition of cisplatin-based chemotherapy to standard treatment improves survival in patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms. Arm I: Patients undergo primary surgery, radical radiotherapy, radiotherapy with surgery, or best supportive care. Arm II: Patients undergo treatment as in arm I. Beginning within 10 weeks after surgery or radical radiotherapy or as soon as possible after diagnosis, patients receive 1 of the following regimens: Regimen A: Patients receive cisplatin IV on day 1 followed by vindesine on days 1 and 8. Regimen B: Patients receive mitomycin, ifosfamide, and cisplatin on day 1. Regimen C: Patients receive mitomycin, vinblastine, and cisplatin on day 1. Regimen D: Patients receive vinorelbine on days 1 and 8 and cisplatin on day 1. Treatment in all 4 regimens repeats every 3 weeks for 3 courses. Patients are followed at 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 1,800 patients will be accrued for this study within 3 years.
