  Purpose

This phase II trial is studying how well a frailty index and geriatric assessment works in predicting toxicity to front-line chemotherapy in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. A frailty index and geriatric assessment prior to treatment may help identify a better treatment regimen


Condition Intervention Phase
Recurrent Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Stage IV Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Drug: cisplatin
Drug: carboplatin
Other: questionnaire administration
Phase 2

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Phase II Study of Fraility Index and Geriatric Assessment as Predictors of Toxicity to Front-Line Chemotherapy in Patients With Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Use of the Frailty Index and/or the geriatric assessment in prediction of toxicity [ Time Frame: Prior to chemotherapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: January 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Supportive Care (frailty index, geriatric assessment, chemo)
Patients complete a frailty index and geriatric assessment prior to beginning chemotherapy. Patients receive standard-of-care chemotherapy comprising carboplatin IV and paclitaxel IV on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 2 courses
Drug: cisplatin

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To determine the correlation of the data from the frailty index and geriatric assessment tool with the level of toxicity encountered in the first two cycles of therapy.

OUTLINE:

Patients complete a frailty index and geriatric assessment prior to beginning chemotherapy. Patients receive standard-of-care chemotherapy comprising carboplatin intravenously (IV) and paclitaxel IV on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 2 courses.
