This randomized phase II trial is studying how well giving erlotinib alone or together with carboplatin and paclitaxel works in treating patients with stage III or stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. Erlotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving erlotinib together with carboplatin and paclitaxel may kill more tumor cells
Further Study Information
I. Determine the progression-free survival of patients with chemotherapy-naïve select stage IIIB or stage IV non-small cell lung cancer treated with erlotinib with or without carboplatin and paclitaxel.
I. Determine the radiographic response rate in patients treated with these regimens.
II. Correlate the frequency of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations and K-ras mutations with the response rate and time to progression in patients treated with these regimens.
III. Determine the median and overall survival of patients treated with these regimens.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
ARM I: Patients receive oral erlotinib once daily on days 1-21. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM II: Patients receive erlotinib as in arm I. Patients also receive paclitaxel IV over 1-3 hours and carboplatin IV over 15-30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of 6 courses of treatment, patients may continue to receive erlotinib alone as above.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at least every 3 months for 1 year and then every 6 months for up to 2 years.
