  Purpose

RATIONALE: Naproxen may help prevent or lessen bone pain caused by pegfilgrastim. It is not yet known whether naproxen is more effective than a placebo in preventing bone pain caused by pegfilgrastim in patients with non-hematologic cancer undergoing chemotherapy.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying naproxen to see how well it works compared with a placebo in preventing bone pain caused by pegfilgrastim in patients with non-hematologic cancer undergoing chemotherapy.

Further study details as provided by University of Rochester:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Severity and duration of bone pain (day 1 being the day pegfilgrastim is administered) as measured by a daily diary [ Time Frame: from baseline through day 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Potential risk factors for the development of pegfilgrastim-induced bone pain [ Time Frame: at time of onstudy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Potential clinical predictors for response or failure to respond to treatment [ Time Frame: at enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Presence or severity of symptoms [ Time Frame: at enrollment and at off study-5 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 512
Study Start Date: June 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm I
Patients receive oral naproxen twice daily beginning on the day pegfilgrastim is administered (day 2, 3, or 4) and continuing for 5-8 days.
Drug: naproxen
Oral naproxen twice daily for 5-8 days.
Placebo Comparator: Arm II
Patients receive an oral placebo twice daily beginning on the day pegfilgrastim is administered (day 2, 3, or 4) and continuing for 5-8 days.
Other: placebo
Oral placebo twice daily for 5-8 days.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • To compare the efficacy of daily administration of naproxen vs placebo in preventing or reducing the severity and duration of pegfilgrastim-induced bone pain (PIBP) in patients with non-hematologic malignancies undergoing chemotherapy.

Secondary

  • To identify potential risk factors for the development of PIBP.
  • To identify potential clinical predictors for the response or failure to respond to naproxen in preventing PIBP.
  • To assess the toxicity of naproxen when administered in the preventive setting.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified by CCOP site. Patients are randomized to 1 treatment arm vs placebo.

  • Arm I: Patients receive oral naproxen twice daily beginning on the day pegfilgrastim is administered (day 2, 3, or 4) and continuing for 5-8 days.
  • Arm II: Patients receive matching placebo twice daily beginning on the day pegfilgrastim is administered (day 2, 3, or 4) and continuing for 5-8 days.
