TITLE : Circulating tumor cells identification in advanced stage non-small cell lung cancer (CIRCUBRONCH)

BACKGROUND : Circulating tumor cells identification is a new field of research in oncology, and some studies have been conducted with success on breast and prostate cancer. Nearly 80% of lung cancers are diagnosed in an advanced stage (IIIB, and IV). Circulating tumor cells identification and monitoring these cells after treatment could help the clinicians to detect relapse or be a prognostic factor.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE : Circulating tumor cells identification, and monitoring in advanced stage lung cancers (IIIB and IV).

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES : Predictive value of the monitoring of circulating tumor cells on the therapeutic response. Prognostic value of identification of circulating tumor cells at the time of diagnosis.

STUDY DESIGN : This study is a prospective, monocentrique trial analyzing the identification of circulating tumor cells in stage IIIB, and IV non-small cell lung cancers.

Duration of the inclusions: 18 months.

Duration of the study: 30 months.

PROCEDURES : Detection of circulating tumor cells with CellSearch system (Veridex), and a cut-off of 5 cells/7,5 ml of blood.

SAMPLE SIZE : 200 patients

STATISTICAL ANALYSIS : Detection of circulating tumor cells is predicted in 20% of stage IIIB, and IV non-small cell lung cancers included in this study. The cut-off is 5 circulating tumor cells per 7,5 ml of blood.

Stage IIIB Non Small Cell Lung Cancer
Stage IV Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Identification of circulating tumor cells in locally advanced, and metastatic non-small cell lung cancer. [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Circulating tumor cells will be search with the Veridex method, and a value per 7.5 f blood will be recorded.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Identification of a cellular profile according to clinical factors (sex,histology, …). [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    epidemiological,and clinical characteristics of patients with advanced lung cancer
