I. Evaluate the safety and efficacy, in terms of clinical disease benefit, (complete or partial response and stable disease with stable or improved quality of life scores) of combination of oral topotecan (topotecan hydrochloride) when given with weekly doxorubicin (doxorubicin hydrochloride) in patients with SCLC.
II. Determine the dose limiting toxicity of oral topotecan when given with weekly doxorubicin in patients with SCLC.
I. Estimate topoisomerase I and II levels in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and correlate with presence or absence of grades 3 and 4 hematological toxicity.
II. Estimate topoisomerase I and II levels in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and correlate with efficacy.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of topotecan hydrochloride.
Patients receive doxorubicin hydrochloride intravenously (IV) over 3-5 minutes on day 6 of course 1 and on days 6, 13, and 20 of courses 2-5. Patients also receive topotecan hydrochloride orally (PO) on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 5 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 2 months.

Experimental: Treatment (doxorubicin hydrochloride, topotecan hydrochloride)
Patients receive doxorubicin hydrochloride IV over 3-5 minutes on day 6 of course 1 and on days 6, 13, and 20 of courses 2-5. Patients also receive topotecan hydrochloride PO on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 5 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

- Maximum tolerated dose defined as the next lowest dose level below where greater than or equal to 2/3 or 3/6 patients experience dose limiting toxicities in cohorts of 5 different doses by National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria version 3.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks (after 2 courses) ]The actual rates of dose limiting toxicities per dose cohort will be presented when applicable.
- Changes in quality of life levels [ Time Frame: Up to 16 weeks ]Measured by standard instruments and compared when possible between patients who responded versus nonresponders.
- Changes in topoisomerase I and II levels in peripheral blood mononuclear cells [ Time Frame: Baseline to up to week 16 ]The changes over time will be described and correlated with hematological toxicity and efficacy. Mean change and standard deviation over time will be computed and when possible change in topoisomerase levels over time will be compared between patients developing grade 4 hematological toxicities versus others (no toxicity or grades 1-3) or between patients developing grades 3-4 non-hematological toxicities versus others (no toxicity or grades 1-2) or between patients who responded (complete response, partial response, stable disease) versus no response or progressed using non-parametric tests.
- Overall response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 15 weeks (after 5 courses) ]
