Carboplatin and Docetaxel After Surgery in Treating Patients With Stage I, Stage II, or Stage III Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and docetaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving carboplatin together with docetaxel after surgery may kill any tumor cells that remain after surgery.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving carboplatin together with docetaxel works in treating patients with stage I, stage II, or stage III non-small cell lung cancer.
Procedure: adjuvant therapy

Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Trial Exploring the Feasibility of Adjuvant Carboplatin/Docetaxel in Curatively Resected Stage I-IIIA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer|
- Feasibility of administering of carboplatin/docetaxel as adjuvant therapy in resected stage I-IIIA NSCLC [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Number of subjects with toxicity [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Assess the number of subjects experiencing toxicities(per the CTCAE criteria) after receiving carboplatin/docetaxel in the adjuvant setting
|Study Start Date:||May 2004|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Evaluate the feasibility of adjuvant carboplatin and docetaxel in patients with resected stage I, II, or IIIA non-small cell lung cancer.
- Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the survival patterns of patients treated with this regimen.
- Assess the patterns of recurrence in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: Patients receive carboplatin IV on day 1 and docetaxel IV on day 1. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
