  Purpose

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of vorinostat when given together with paclitaxel and radiation therapy and to see how well it works in treating patients unable to tolerate cisplatin with stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that cannot be removed by surgery. Vorinostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving vorinostat together with paclitaxel and radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • MTD of vorinostat when administered in combination with paclitaxel and radiotherapy therapy as assessed by NCI Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 3.0 (Phase I) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Defined as the highest dose level at which no more than 1 of 6 patients experiences dose-limiting toxicity.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Radiological response rate as assessed by CT [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks post-treatment, then every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for a year thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Duration of response [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks post-treatment, then every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for a year thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: From the first day of study treatment until disease progression or death, assessed up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: From the first day of study treatment until death, assessed up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety and toxicity of vorinostat at the MTD as assessed by NCI CTCAE version 3.0 [ Time Frame: Weekly during treatment, 30 days post-treatment, and 12 weeks post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of vorinostat when administered in combination with paclitaxel and thoracic radiation therapy in patients with locally advanced NSCLC.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the safety and toxicity of vorinostat when administered in combination with paclitaxel and thoracic radiation therapy in patients with locally advanced NSCLC.

II. To determine the radiological response rate, by computed tomography (CT) scan, of vorinostat when administered in combination with paclitaxel and thoracic radiation therapy in patients with locally advanced NSCLC.

III. To describe the progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) of this regiment over 3 years of follow up.

OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study of vorinostat followed by a phase II study.

Patients receive vorinostat orally (PO) once daily (QD), 5 days a week and paclitaxel intravenously (IV) over 1 hour once a week. Patients also undergo radiation therapy QD, 5 days a week. Treatment repeats every week for 7 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days, 12 weeks, every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for 1 year.
