This project proposes to use bronchoscopic intratumoral chemotherapy for small cell lung cancer in two fashions:

  1. to implement a prospective clinical trial to test the feasibility and efficacy of intralesional chemotherapy as consolidative therapy immediately following standard systemic chemotherapy and radiation therapy for patients with limited stage SCLC by comparing tumor growth and survival rates of the treatment group and compare the outcomes to historical controls
  2. to implement a prospective clinical trial to test the feasibility and efficacy as measured by tumor growth and survival rates of intralesional chemotherapy for patients with recurrent SCLC after standard treatment.

Further study details as provided by University of Florida:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Solid Tumor Growth After Completion of Interventional Bronchoscopies [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) system will be used to grade the response to therapy.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Subjects will be followed for 5 years or the remainder of the subject's life in order to determine long-term 5 year survival rates.

Enrollment: 4
Study Start Date: December 2011
Study Completion Date: March 2015
Primary Completion Date: March 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: patients with limited stage SCLC
Subjects with limited stage SCLC treated sequentially with cisplatin.
Drug: Cisplatin
40 mg in 40 mL of normal saline for each of 4 bronchoscopies
No Intervention: Historical Controls
No intervention

Detailed Description:
Subjects will receive standard of care treatment for SCLC with added treatment of Cisplatin injection via endobronchial ultrasound aided bronchoscopy a total of four times. Outcome measurements of tumor growth and survival will be compared to subjects receiving standard of care treatment only.

Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria: Competent adult English speaking subjects

  • With limited stage SCLC who have completed standard of care treatment who are responders with no evidence of disseminated disease other than CNS metastasis,
  • With recurrent disseminated SCLC after standard of care treatment with symptoms related to central tumor obstruction,
  • With recurrent limited stage SCLC with mediastinal/hilar recurrence not previously treated with intratumoral cisplatin

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects who do not meet the inclusion criteria
  • Subjects who, in the opinion of the investigator, are at risk undergoing a bronchoscopy
