  Purpose

RATIONALE: Thalidomide may stop the growth of cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of thalidomide in treating patients who have extensive-stage small cell lung cancer that has responded to previous chemotherapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease response [ Time Frame: every 12 weeks ]

Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: August 2002
Study Completion Date: April 2010
Primary Completion Date: November 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: thalidomide
    oral thalidomide daily beginning 3-4 weeks after completion of induction chemotherapy. Treatment continues for 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity
    Procedure: adjuvant therapy
    Patients receive oral thalidomide daily beginning 3-4 weeks after completion of induction chemotherapy. Treatment continues for 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the effect of thalidomide on time to disease progression and survival in patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer who achieve a complete or partial response to induction chemotherapy.
  • Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label study.

Patients receive oral thalidomide daily beginning 3-4 weeks after completion of induction chemotherapy. Treatment continues for 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity

Patients are followed every 3 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 30 patients will be accrued for this study within approximately 18 months.
