|Brief Title ICMJE||Gemcitabine in Combination With Either Cisplatin or Carboplatin in Treating Patients With Stage III or Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer|
|Official Title ICMJE||A British Thoracic Oncology Group Phase III Trial of Gemcitabine Plus Cisplatin at 80mg/m Versus Gemcitabine Plus Carboplatin At 50 mg/m Versus Gemcitabine Plus Carboplatin AUC 6 in Stage IIIB/IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, cisplatin, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known whether giving gemcitabine together with cisplatin is more effective than giving gemcitabine together with carboplatin in treating non-small cell lung cancer.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying gemcitabine and cisplatin to see how well they work compared to gemcitabine and carboplatin in treating patients with stage III or stage IV non-small cell lung cancer.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to WHO performance status (0 vs 1 or 2), disease stage (IIIB vs IV), and participating center. Patients are randomized to 1 of 3 treatment arms.
In all arms, treatment repeats every 21 days for 2 courses. Patients are reassessed after 2 courses. Patients with responding disease or stable disease with symptom improvement receive 2 additional courses of therapy in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with disease progression or stable disease without symptom improvement are removed from the study.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline, on day 1 of courses 2-4, at completion of study treatment, and then monthly for 6 months.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed monthly for 6 months and then periodically thereafter for survival.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 1,350 patients (450 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study within 6 years.
