A Phase II Study Of Tirapazamine (NSC-130181)/Cisplatin/Etoposide And Concurrent Thoracic Radiotherapy For Limited Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer


I. Determine the overall survival of patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer
treated with tirapazamine, cisplatin, and etoposide with concurrent thoracic radiotherapy
followed by consolidation cisplatin and etoposide.

II. Determine the time to treatment failure and response (confirmed and unconfirmed,
complete and partial) in patients with measurable disease treated with this regimen.

III. Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients. IV. Correlate baseline PAI-1,
VEGF, OPN, and NDRG1 plasma markers with response and survival of patients treated with this

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Chemoradiotherapy: Patients receive tirapazamine IV over 1 hour on days 1, 8, 10, 12, 29,
36, 38, and 40; cisplatin IV over 1 hour on days 1, 8, 29, and 36; and etoposide IV over 1
hour on days 1-5 and 29-33. Beginning on day 1 of chemotherapy, patients undergo thoracic
radiotherapy once daily 5 days a week for 7 weeks.

Consolidation chemotherapy: Within 28 days after completion of radiotherapy, patients with
stable or responding disease receive cisplatin IV over 1 hour on days 1 and 22 and etoposide
IV over 1 hour on days 1-3 and 22-24.

Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 2-3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 1 year.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 30-85 patients will be accrued for this study within 17

Study Design:

Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

Overall Survival

Outcome Description:

Overall survival was defined as the time from date of enrollment until the date of death due to any cause. Patients last known to be alive were censored at the date of last conatct. Patients were followed for a maximum of 3 years from the date of enrollment.

Outcome Time Frame:

Weekly during protocol treatment, then every 3 months for first year, then every 6 months for up to 3 years after enrollment.
