|Brief Title ICMJE||Radiation Therapy Plus Combination Chemotherapy In Treating Patients With Limited Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer|
|Official Title ICMJE||A Randomised Study of Timing of Thoracic Irradiation in Small Cell Lung Cancer (Study 8)|
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. The best timing for radiation therapy and combination chemotherapy in treating limited stage small cell lung cancer is not yet known .
PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of radiation therapy given at different times along with combination chemotherapy in treating patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine whether long term survival is affected by the timing of thoracic radiotherapy in patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer who are receiving combination chemotherapy. II. Determine whether the development of local recurrence and distant metastases are affected by the timing of thoracic radiotherapy in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified by center. All patients receive cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and vincristine by IV bolus alternating with 3 days of daily etoposide IV infusion over 60-120 minutes and cisplatin IV infusion over 30 minutes. This treatment alternates every 3 weeks for six courses. Patients are randomized to have thoracic radiotherapy either with course 2 (arm I) or with course 6 (arm II) of chemotherapy. Patients in arm I are given 1 week of rest between radiotherapy and the second course of chemotherapy. If there is no disease progression after chemotherapy and locoregional irradiation, and a repeat brain scan is negative, patients receive prophylactic brain irradiation. Patients are followed monthly for the first year and then every 2 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: This study will accrue 398 patients.
