  Purpose

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab and cetuximab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Bevacizumab may also stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether giving carboplatin and paclitaxel are more effective with or without bevacizumab and/or cetuximab in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying carboplatin and paclitaxel to compare how well they work with or without bevacizumab and/or cetuximab in treating patients with stage IV or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • To compare overall survival (OS) in patients with stage IV or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with carboplatin, paclitaxel, and bevacizumab (if appropriate) with vs without cetuximab.
  • To compare progression-free survival (PFS) of EGFR FISH-positive patients by institutional review.

Secondary

  • To compare OS and PFS of EGFR FISH-positive patients by centralized review.
  • To compare PFS of the entire study population by centralized image review and by institutional review.
  • To compare the response rate (confirmed plus unconfirmed, complete and partial responses) in a subset of patients with measurable disease treated with these regimens.
  • To assess the toxicities of these regimens.
  • To prospectively test EGFR FISH as a predictive marker for the selection of patients for treatment with cetuximab and chemotherapy.
  • To evaluate the role of KRAS mutations in terms of cetuximab efficacy.
  • To compare the results of EGFR FISH with KRAS mutations, EGFR mutations, EGFR IHC, and other purported EGFR-related biomarkers.

Tertiary

  • To compare PFS in patients with advanced NSCLC with an IHC score > 200 treated with carboplatin, paclitaxel, and bevacizumab (if appropriate) with or without cetuximab.
  • To compare OS in patients with advanced NSCLC with an IHC score > 200 treated with carboplatin, paclitaxel, and bevacizumab (if appropriate) with or without cetuximab.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to bevacizumab-appropriate status (yes vs no), smoking status (current or former [no smoking ≥ 1year] vs never [< 100 cigarettes lifetime]), and stage (M1a vs M1b). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

  • Arm I: Patients receive carboplatin IV over 30 minutes and paclitaxel IV over 3 hours with or without bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of 6 courses, patients receiving bevacizumab may continue to receive bevacizumab (as above) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
  • Arm II: Patients receive carboplatin and paclitaxel with or without bevacizumab as in arm I. Patients also receive cetuximab IV over 1-2 hours on days 1, 8, and 15. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of 6 courses, patients may continue to receive cetuximab with or without bevacizumab (as above) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Plasma and tissue samples are collected periodically for further laboratory analysis.

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