Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining paclitaxel and oxaliplatin in treating patients who have recurrent or advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lung Cancer Drug: oxaliplatin Drug: paclitaxel Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the overall, partial, and complete response rates in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer treated with oxaliplatin plus paclitaxel. II. Assess the overall survival, time to tumor progression, and toxicities associated with this combination regimen in this patient population. III. Assess the neurologic toxicity of this combination regimen and its correlation with creatinine clearance in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 1 hour followed by oxaliplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed for at least 2 years or until death.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 17-37 patients will be accrued for this study within 24 months.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 38 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
