RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Chemoprotective drugs such as amifostine may protect normal cells from the side effects of chemotherapy.

PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of combining docetaxel, cisplatin, and amifostine in treating patients who have advanced non-small cell lung cancer that cannot be surgically removed.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug/Agent Toxicity by Tissue/Organ Lung Cancer Drug: amifostine trihydrate Drug: cisplatin Drug: docetaxel Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase I/II Trial of Amifostine, High-Dose Cisplatin and Docetaxel in Patients With Advanced Lung Cancer

Further study details as provided by National Cancer Institute (NCI):

Study Start Date: July 1997
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of docetaxel when combined with amifostine and high dose cisplatin in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. II. Determine the response rate and survival of these patients treated with this regimen. III. Determine the tolerability of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation, multicenter study of docetaxel. Patients receive amifostine IV over 15 minutes, immediately followed by docetaxel IV over 1 hour, followed at hour 2 by amifostine as above, immediately followed by high dose cisplatin IV over 30 minutes. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of patients receive escalating doses of docetaxel until the maximum tolerated dose is determined.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-30 patients will be accrued for this study.
