RATIONALE: 13 Cis retinoic acid may prevent the development of cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Randomized double-blinded phase II trial to study the effectiveness of 13-cis retinoic acid with or without vitamin E for chemoprevention or observation of cancer in persons at high risk of developing lung cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Drug Toxicity Lung Cancer||Drug: 13-cis retinoic acid Dietary Supplement: Tocopherol||Phase 2|
- To determine if alpha tocopherol can reduce the toxicities of low dose 13-cis retinoic acid administered for one year.
- To access the adequacy of the collected specimens for studies of intermediate endpoint markers.
to establish a depository of biologic specimens for future studies of new biomarkers.
- Arm 1: Patients receive oral 13-cis retinoic acid daily.
- Arm 2: Patients receive oral 13-cis retinoic acid and oral vitamin E daily.
- Arm 3: Patients undergo observation only. Treatment continues in arms I and II for 1 year in the absence of unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed annually for 2 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 100 patients (33 Arm 1, 33 Arm 2, and 34 Arm 3) will be accrued for this study within 3 years.
