Advanced Information
Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Gemcitabine With or Without CI-994 in Treating Patients With Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE A Randomized Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter Study of CI-994 Capsules Plus Gemcitabine Infusion Versus Placebo Capsules Plus Gemcitabine Infusion as Second-Line Treatment of Patients With Advanced Nonsmall Cell Lung Cancer
Brief Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. It is not yet known whether gemcitabine plus CI-994 is more effective than gemcitabine alone for non-small cell lung cancer.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of gemcitabine with or without CI-994 in treating patients who have advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

Detailed Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy and safety of gemcitabine with or without CI-994 in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to performance status and are randomized to one of two treatment arms. Arm I: Patients receive CI-994 orally on days 1-21 and gemcitabine IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Arm II: Patients receive placebo capsules orally on days 1-21 and gemcitabine as in arm I. Treatment repeats every 28 days as long as medically appropriate (absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity).

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 176 patients will be accrued for this study.
