Trial Information

Bone Metabolic Markers, TRAP, and Zometa's Effect on Bone Metastasis Due to Lung Cancer

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate a new blood test as a way to follow the
effect of Zometa in treating bone metastases. The blood test will look for a protein,
called TRAP, which is released into the blood stream by the breakdown of bone. This study
will compare the TRAP blood test with other blood tests for bone destruction.

Inclusion Criteria:

- invasive lung cancer (small cell or non-small cell lung cancer)

- osteolytic bone metastasis determined by clinical exam, bone scan/XR

- age > 18 years

Exclusion Criteria:

- concurrent malignancy with a second primary

- renal failure (serum creatinine > 3mg/dl)

- pregnancy

- active rheumatoid arthritis

- intolerance to zoledronic acid

Type of Study:


Study Design:

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

Outcome Measure:

Blood specimens to measure TRAP level

Outcome Time Frame:

baseline, every 2 weeks for 6 weeks after the first Zometa infusion, then monthly until progression of bone metastatic disease

Safety Issue:
