Exemestane, Pemetrexed Disodium, and Carboplatin in Treating Post-Menopausal Women With Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of exemestane in combination with pemetrexed disodium and carboplatin in treating post-menopausal women with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. Exemestane may stop the growth of tumor calls by blocking some of the enzymes need for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed disodium and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving exemestane together with pemetrexed disodium and carboplatin may kill more tumor cells

- Tabulation, grading, and attribution of serious adverse events (SAEs) and adverse events (AEs) using the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 3.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Proportion achieving clinical response [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]For categorical markers Fisher's exact test will be used. The log rank test will be used to examine association between categorical markers and time to disease progression. For quantitative markers one-way ANOVA will be used. Cox-proportional hazards regression models will be used to correlate quantitative markers with time to disease progression. Pearson correlations will be used between pairs of quantitative markers. If there is significant non-normality the Kendall correlation coefficients will be used. Mixed effects models will be used to quantify markers at multiple time points.
- Quality of life in patients treated with pemetrexed disodium, carboplatin and exemestane [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Quality of life measures will be compared between response categories (ANOVA) and the effect of time on therapy will be assessed with mixed effects models.

Experimental: Treatment (exemestane, pemetrexed disodium, and carboplatin)
Patients receive exemestane PO QD on days 1-28 and pemetrexed disodium IV over 15 minutes and carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

I. Evaluate the safety and tolerability of escalating doses of exemestane when given with pemetrexed (pemetrexed disodium) and carboplatin in post-menopausal women with stage IV non-squamous, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
I. Determine the objective tumor response rate (defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors [RECIST] 1.1) in patients treated with pemetrexed, carboplatin and exemestane.
II. Evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile of pemetrexed, carboplatin and exemestane.
III. Evaluate quality of life in patients treated with pemetrexed, carboplatin and exemestane.
IV. Analyze tumor tissue biomarkers for potential correlation with response.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of exemestane.
Patients receive exemestane orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28 and pemetrexed disodium intravenously (IV) over 15 minutes and carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days, and then every 3 months thereafter.
