Bortezomib in Treating Patients With Stage IIIB or Stage IV Lung Cancer

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00118144
Recruitment Status : Completed

Brief Summary:
This phase II trial is studying how well bortezomib works in treating patients with stage IIIB or stage IV lung cancer. Bortezomib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Adenocarcinoma of the Lung Bronchoalveolar Cell Lung Cancer Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Recurrent Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Stage IIIB Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Stage IV Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: bortezomib Phase 2

Detailed Description:


I. Determine the objective response rate in patients with stage IIIB or IV bronchoalveolar carcinoma (BAC) or adencarcinoma of the lung with BAC features treated with bortezomib.


I. Determine the progression-free and overall survival of patients treated with this drug.

II. Determine the time to disease progression in patients treated with this drug.

III. Determine predictors of response, based on molecular correlative studies of tumor and blood, in patients with treated with this drug.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to prior epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor therapy (yes vs no).

Patients receive bortezomib IV over 3-5 seconds on days 1 and 8. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed for survival.

Drug Information available for: Bortezomib

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Arm I
Patients receive bortezomib IV over 3-5 seconds on days 1 and 8.
Drug: bortezomib
Given IV

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response Rate With Bortezomib Evaluated by Both RECIST Criteria and Computer-assisted Image Analysis. [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    A response rate of 20% or more with bortezomib would be of interest for further evaluation, whereas a response rate of less than 5% would be of no interest. Response defined as a confirmed CR or PR.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Progression Free Survival using the product-limit method of Kaplan and Meier

  2. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Overall Suvival using the product-limit method of Kaplan and Meier.
