Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Between 9/2003 and 7/2006, 72 of planned 85 limited smal-cell lung cancer patients were enrolled by SWOG institutions. The study was closed early due to a report of excess toxicity for Tirapazamine in a head and neck cancer trial elsewhere.

1.  Primary:   Overall Survival   [ Time Frame: Weekly during protocol treatment, then every 3 months for first year, then every 6 months for up to 3 years after enrollment. ]

2.  Secondary:   Response Rate (Confirmed and Unconfirmed Complete and Partial Responses Per RECIST) in the Subset of Patients With Measurable Disease at Baseline.   [ Time Frame: After completeion of concurrent chemotherapy+radiation (Week 8); then after completion of consolidation chemotherapy (Week15); once off treatment, every 3 months until disease progression for a maximum of 3 years after enrollment. ]

3.  Secondary:   Progression-Free Survival   [ Time Frame: At end of concurrent chemoradiotherapy (Week 8), then at end of consolidation chemotherapy (Week 15). After off treatment, every 3 months for the first 2 years then every 6 months for up to 3 years after enrollment. ]
