Trial Information

Phase II Trial of Paclitaxel by 96-Hour Infusion in Stage IIIB and IV Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma (BAC)

OBJECTIVES: I. Assess survival, progression-free survival and response rate of patients with
bronchioloalveolar carcinoma receiving paclitaxel. II. Evaluate toxic effects of paclitaxel
in 96 hour continuous infusion patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive 6 cycles of paclitaxel by IV continuous infusion over 96 hours.
Before cycle 4, restaging is performed. If disease progression is witnessed, patients are
removed from the study. If a stable, partial, or complete response is observed, patients
receive the total of 6 cycles. Three weeks after the last cycle, final restaging is
performed. Patients are followed every 3 months while on treatment and every 6 months
thereafter, unless more frequent follow-up is clinically recommended.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 50 patients will be enrolled. The accrual rate is estimated at 25 per
