High-Dose Combination Chemotherapy Followed by Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Lung Cancer
Tandem Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation (PBSCT) After High Dose Paclitaxel Followed by Ifosfamide, Carboplatin, and Etoposide (ICE) for the Treatment of Lung Cancer

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of high-dose combination chemotherapy followed by peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients with lung cancer.

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the response rate of high dose chemotherapy followed by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in the treatment of lung cancer.

OUTLINE: Patients undergo stem cell harvesting. Patients receive radiation therapy to primary site and metastatic sites, if necessary. Patients receive a high dose of paclitaxel by 24 hour continuous infusion, then stem cells are infused 72 hours later. After a 3-4 week recovery period, patients receive ifosfamide and carboplatin by daily continuous infusion on days -7, -6, -5, and -4. Etoposide is administered by continuous infusion twice daily on days -7, -6, -5, and -4. Stem cells are again infused on day 0. Filgrastim (granulocyte colony-stimulating factor; G-CSF) begins on day 0. Patients may receive radiotherapy following recovery from chemotherapy. Patients are followed weekly for the first 6 months, then periodically for at least 2 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: This study will accrue 30 patients in 3 years.
