ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00822016
Recruitment Status :
(PI left institution. Insufficient enrollment for analysis.)
The purpose of this study is to establish a listing (database) of patients diagnosed with lung cancer and treated with best supportive care and standard and investigational chemotherapy regimens, surgery, and radiation therapy at the UNM CRTC and other NMCCA sites. The information will be used to determine the results of various treatments for lung cancer subjects and to find where improvements can be made in safety, effectiveness, supportive care, treatment that eases tumors without curing them, treatments that cure tumors, prevention, and follow-up efforts. The database information will be compared to clinical trial data published in peer-reviewed journals and SEER outcome data. Patients will be acquired both before and after they are treated for lung cancer.
To document the progression-free survival, rate of response, median duration of response, & median overall survivals, of subjects receiving best supportive care with or without standard surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy for lung cancer [ Time Frame: 3-6 months ]
Secondary Outcome Measures :
To document the incidence and severity of toxicities, and reversibility of toxicities of subjects as a function of the treatments rendered. [ Time Frame: 3-6 months ]

Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years and older (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Patients diagnosed with lung cancer and treated with best supportive care and standard and investigational chemotherapy regimens, surgery, and radiation therapy at the UNM CRTC and other NMCCA sites.
Those who are eligible for this treatment protocol will consist of:
Patients with histologically diagnosed lung cancer.
Patients receiving therapy should have an ECOG/Zubrod/SWOG performance status of <3 at the time of the initiation of therapy.
All newly diagnosed patients referred to an NMCC Alliance site will be eligible, as will patients with recurrent disease that are now referred to an NMCCA for their next therapy (such as those who move from out of state, or are referred for protocol therapy), though efforts will be made to obtain records of prior therapy administered elsewhere).
Patients not falling under any of the above criteria are not eligible for the study.
Withdrawal of the informed consent at any point in the study excludes patient from the study.
