  Purpose

This proposal evaluates cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) inhibition as a means to decrease T regulatory cell activities and thus augment immune responses against lung cancer. The broad goal focuses on understanding how COX-2 expression regulates the malignant phenotype in non small cell lung cancer in an effort to foster an informed approach for the use of COX-2 inhibitors in prevention and therapy for lung cancer.

Arms Assigned Interventions
1
Celecoxib is an FDA approved drug for other indications such as osteoarthritis. It is not FDA approved for non-small cell lung cancer.
Drug: Celecoxib
Eight subjects will be assigned to one of three cohorts. Subjects will receive Celecoxib in escalating doses per cohort, starting with 200mg twice a day by mouth; 400mg twice a day by mouth; and increasing to 600mg twice a day by mouth, for a total of 7 days. Subjects will have blood taken before the start of Celecoxib, and after completion of 7-days of Celecoxib.
