The purpose of this study is to evaluate the maximum tolerated dose, the activity and the safety profile of the combination of vorinostat and topotecan in patients with recurrent small cell lung cancer
Small Cell Lung Cancer
Drug: topotecan, vorinostat
||Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Phase I-II Study of Oral Suberoylanilide Hydroxamic Acid (Vorinostat) in Combination With Topotecan in Patients With Chemosensitive Recurrent Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC)
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Maximum tolerated dose of the combination as the recommended dose for phase II trial [Phase I]; objective response rate of the combination [Phase II]; toxicity and safety profile of the combination [Phase II] [ Time Frame: Limiting tolerated dose (Phase I); efficacy/toxicity after the inclusion of the last patient (Phase II) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- To assess the antitumor activity of the combination in terms of time to progression (TTP) and overall survival (OS) [Phase II] [ Time Frame: After the follow up period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Vorinostat/topotecan dose escalation regimen. vorinostat is administered orally once a day for 7 to 14 consecutive days, according to the dose level.Topotecan is administered I.V. for 5 consecutive days every three weeks.
Vorinostat dose levels go from 300 mg/day for 7 days to 400 mg/day for 14 days. Topotecan dose levels go from 1,2 mg/m2 to 1,5 mg/m2
Drug: topotecan, vorinostat
Phase I study: vorinostat will be administered daily for a number of days per cycle variable from 7 to 14 according to the level of dose escalation; topotecan will be administered I.V. for 5 consecutive days every 3 weeks.
Phase II study: Patients will receive treatment at the recommended dose established by phase I part of the trial, for a maximum of 6 cycles or until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or patient's refusal.
Other Name: Merck Vorinostat
