Clinical Trial Title
A Randomized Phase III Study Comparing Etoposide and Cisplatin With Etoposide, Cisplatin and Paclitaxel in Patients With Extensive Small Cell Lung Cancer
Trial Summary and Conditions
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known whether cisplatin, etoposide, and paclitaxel are more effective than cisplatin and etoposide alone in treating patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of cisplatin plus etoposide with or without paclitaxel in treating patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer.
Control and experimental arm data files include data on safety, efficacy, demographics, etc. See the data dictionary provided for more details.
I. Determine whether the addition of paclitaxel to standard chemotherapy treatment comprising etoposide and cisplatin improves the survival of patients with extensive stage small cell lung cancer. II. Compare the tumor response rate and failure-free survival of these patients treated with these regimens. III. Describe and compare the toxic effects associated with these regimens in these patients.
Outcome measures are overall survival, response rate, and failure-free survival.
