Condition lung cancer
Treatments cisplatin, etoposide, adjuvant therapy
Phase phase 3
Sponsor European Institute of Oncology
Start date January 1994
Trial size 750 participants
Trial identifier NCT00003053, CDR0000065700, CNR-NICO-01, EU-97010


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.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare cisplatin and etoposide with no chemotherapy in treating patients who have stage I, stage II, or stage IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been surgically removed.

Additional Information

Official title Adjuvant Treatment of Non Small Cell Lung Cancer
Description OBJECTIVES: - Assess the efficacy of the combination of cisplatin and etoposide after radical surgery in prolonging the relapse free and overall survival for stages I, II, and IIIA non-small cell lung cancer. OUTLINE: This a randomized study (treatment vs no treatment). Patients are stratified according to sex and to stage of disease (I vs II vs IIIA). Patient receives cisplatin and etoposide on days 1-3, every 28 days, for 3 cycles. Patient may receive radiation therapy after surgery at the discretion of the physician. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 750 patients will be accrued over 3 years.
