RATIONALE: Studying samples of tissue in the laboratory from patients undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy may help doctors understand how well patients respond to treatment.

PURPOSE: This research study is studying biomarkers in predicting response in patients with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer previously treated with adjuvant chemotherapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Prognostic values [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Predictive markers [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease-free survival [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 1606
Study Start Date: August 2008
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:


  • To evaluate potential prognostic and predictive markers in patients treated with adjuvant chemotherapy for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer.
  • To perform cross-validation analyses for the predictive value of p27, ERCC1, and beta-tubulin.
  • To perform cross-validation analyses for the prognostic value of mucin and BRCA1 expression.
  • To perform a pooled analysis for the prognostic impact of p53 protein expression by IHC, p53 mutation, ras mutation, and EGFR mutation.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to planned radiotherapy (yes vs no), area of the world (Eastern Europe vs Western Europe vs rest of the world), and center size (< 20 vs > 20 patients).

Tumor tissue samples are selected from CALGB-9633 and from Lung Adjuvant Cisplatin Evaluation (LACE) group's studies; ANITA, FRE-IALT, and CAN-NCIC-BR10. Clinical data are gathered from these patients' protocol records and sent to Institute Gustave-Roussy for cross-validation studies and pooled analyses.

Tissue samples are analyzed by IHC to identify predictive markers and investigate protein expression and mutations and by Cox model for prognostic values.
