RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood in the laboratory from patients undergoing treatment for non-small cell lung cancer may help doctors predict how patients will respond to treatment.

PURPOSE: This laboratory study is looking at proteomic patterns in stored blood samples from patients undergoing treatment for non-small cell lung cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival

Estimated Enrollment: 90
Study Start Date: March 2008
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:



  • To develop a serum proteomic classifier using matrix-assisted laser-desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry analysis of blood samples from patients with non-squamous cell non-small cell lung cancer to predict benefit, in terms of survival and time to progression, from treatment with bevacizumab in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel.


  • To better quantitate candidate biomarkers by using more advanced mass spectrometric technologies, including multiple-reaction monitoring and heavy-labeled peptides.

OUTLINE: Previously collected pre-treatment samples of serum or plasma are randomly selected from patients enrolled on protocol ECOG-4599 (i.e., 60 from the bevacizumab arm and 30 from the control arm). Samples are analyzed by matrix-assisted laser-desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry to identify patterns from protein spectra that correlate with patient survival.
