Last verified: October 2016
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of Iressa when used with a short course of high dose radiation therapy in patients with lung cancer.

Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma (NSCLC) Drug: ZD1839 (Iressa) Radiation: Thoracic Radiotherapy Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I Study of ZD1839 (Iressa) and Hypofractionated Thoracic Radiotherapy With Stereotactic Body Frame Immobilization for Patients With Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Patients Affected by Treatment-related Morbidities [ Time Frame: Twice weekly during RT and at 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-month points after therapy ]
    See "Adverse Events" section for specific toxicities


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Tumor Response [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1, 3, and 5 months post-treatment ]

    Definitions of objective tumor response

    • Complete response - disappearance of all target lesions
    • Partial response - at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum longest diameter
    • Progressive disease - at least a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, taking as reference the smallest sum longest diameter recorded since the treatment started or the appearance of one or more new lesions
    • Stable disease - neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for partial response nor sufficient increase to qualify for progressive disease, taking as reference the smallest sum longest diameter since the treatment started

  • Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Baseline to date of progression ]
  • Survival From Starting Gefitinib [ Time Frame: Baseline to date of expiration ]

Enrollment: 13
Study Start Date: December 2003
Study Completion Date: September 2010
Primary Completion Date: April 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Iressa and RT

Iressa plus thoracic RT at the following dose levels:

  • Level 1: 42.0 Gy in 10 fractions of 4.2 Gy
  • Level 2: 50.4 Gy in 12 fractions of 4.2 Gy
  • Level 3: 63.0 Gy in 15 fractions of 4.2 Gy
Drug: ZD1839 (Iressa) Radiation: Thoracic Radiotherapy

Detailed Description:

To estimate treatment-related esophageal, pulmonary, hematologic, and other toxicity of patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) receiving ZD1839 with hypofractionated thoracic radiotherapy (RT). All estimates of toxicity rates will be presented with corresponding confidence intervals using the exact method. The method of Atkinson and Brown will be used due to the two-stage sampling; the method of Conover will be used for tumor response.

To estimate tumor response rates of this treatment regimen and identify the most effective RT dose level, defined as the level associated with the best response rate. Estimates of tumor response rates will be presented with corresponding confidence intervals using the exact method of Conover. Survival will be estimated by the Kaplan-Meier method.
