G-CSF and Pegfilgrastim in Treating Neutropenia in Patients Undergoing Radiation Therapy and Chemotherapy for Limited Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Colony-stimulating factors, such as G-CSF or pegfilgrastim, may increase the number of immune cells found in bone marrow or peripheral blood and may help the immune system recover from the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying G-CSF and pegfilgrastim to see how well they work in treating neutropenia in patients undergoing combination chemotherapy and radiation therapy for limited stage small cell lung cancer.

Experimental: Combined Modality Therapy with Growth Factor Support
Radiation therapy, concurrent chemotherapy and Filgrastim followed by adjuvant chemotherapy and Pegfilgrastim
5mcg/kg/day subcutaneously on days 4-13 and 25-34 after each concurrent chemotherapy cycle for a total of 20 doses.Biological: Pegfilgrastim
6 mg subcutaneously on day 4 of each adjuvant chemotherapy cycle.Drug: Concurrent chemotherapy
Drug: Adjuvant chemotherapy
Beginning day 1 of radiation threapy (+/- 24 hours), repeat cycle every 3 weeks for two cycles:
Day 1: Cisplatin, 60 mg/m^2 i.v.; Days 1-3: Etoposide, 120 mg/m^2 i.v.
Radiation: radiation therapy
Cycle 1: Day 43: Cisplatin, 60 mg/m^2 i.v. and Etoposide, 120 mg/m^2 i.v.; Days 44 & 45: Etoposide, 120 mg/m^2 i.v.
Cycle 2: Day 64: Cisplatin, 60 mg/m^2 i.v. and Etoposide, 120 mg/m^2; Days 65 & 66: Etoposide, 120 mg/m^2 i.v.
A total of 61.2 Gy in 5 weeks: 1.8 Gy daily x 5 week, for 3 weeks (days 1-16); 1.8 Gy, BID, in 4th week (days 17-20) with off cord boost in p.m.; Off-cord boost, 1.8 Gy BID, in 5th week (days 21-25).
- To evaluate the safety and efficacy of filgrastim (G-CSF) in reducing grade 4 neutropenia or grades 3-4 febrile neutropenia in patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer treated with radiotherapy and concurrent chemotherapy comprising cisplatin and etoposide.
- To evaluate the safety and efficacy of pegfilgrastim in reducing grade 4 neutropenia or grades 3-4 febrile neutropenia in patients treated with adjuvant chemotherapy comprising cisplatin and etoposide.
- To estimate the incidence of dose modifications or treatment delays in patients treated with this regimen.
- To estimate the incidence of esophagitis, pneumonitis, and other non-hematological adverse events in patients treated with this regimen.
- To estimate the incidence of grade 4 thrombocytopenia in patients treated with this regimen.
- To estimate the median and two-year rate of progression-free and overall survival of patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients undergo thoracic radiotherapy once daily on days 1-5 of weeks 1-3 and twice daily on days 1-5 of weeks 4 and 5 for a total of 16 fractions. Patients also receive concurrent chemotherapy comprising cisplatin IV on day 1 and etoposide IV on days 1-3. Chemotherapy repeats every 3 weeks for 2 courses. Patients receive filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously (SC) on days 4-13 and 25-34.
After completion of chemoradiotherapy, patients receive adjuvant chemotherapy comprising cisplatin IV on day 1 and etoposide IV on days 2 and 3. Adjuvant therapy repeats every 21 days for up to 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients also receive pegfilgrastim SC on day 4 of each course of adjuvant therapy.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed every 3 months for one year, every 6 months for 2-3 years, and then annually for up to 5 years.
