  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 nitrocamptothecin in treating patients who have recurrent non-small cell lung cancer.

Study Start Date: May 1999
Study Completion Date: April 2004
Detailed Description:

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.
