Reporting Groups
Docetaxel / Carboplatin / XRT + Surgical Resection Patients were treated on this prospective phase II trial of trimodality therapy. Induction treatment consisted of weekly docetaxel 20 mg/m2 and weekly carboplatin at an area under curve (AUC) of 2 concurrent with 45 Gy thoracic radiotherapy. Resection was performed unless felt to be unsafe or if patients had progressive disease. Postoperative consolidation consisted of docetaxel 75 mg/m2 and carboplatin at an AUC of 6 every 3 weeks for 3 cycles with growth factor support. Patients were followed for survival outcomes.

  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   2 Year Overall Survival After a Combination of Chemotherapy, Radiation and Surgery in Stage III NSCLC Patients Following the Protocol Therapy.   [ Time Frame: Two years ]

2.  Secondary:   Change in Standard Uptake Value (SUVmax) on Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scans Pre and Post Chemotherapy and Radiation in This Trial and Ability to Predict Surgical Resection Rate, Progression-free Survival and 2 Year Overall Survival   [ Time Frame: baseline, 5 weeks after combined chemo-radiation ]

3.  Other Pre-specified:   Exploratory Analysis of Relation of Gene Expression Patterns to Outcomes in Patients With Locally Advanced Lung Cancer Who Receive This Treatment Regimen   [ Time Frame: Specimen collected at time of surgery ]

  Serious Adverse Events

  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Accrual was very slow. The study was halted with accrual of only 13 patients. These results were published.
