Nitrocamptothecin in Treating Patients With Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
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 nitrocamptothecin in treating patients who have recurrent non-small cell lung cancer.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of RFS 2000 in Relapsed NSCLC|
|Study Start Date:||May 1999|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate, time to progression and overall survival of patients with recurrent non-small cell lung cancer when treated with nitrocamptothecin. II. Assess the toxicities and pharmacokinetics of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral nitrocamptothecin daily on days 1-5. Treatment continues weekly in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed for survival.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-55 patients will be accrued for this study.
