Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Papaverine and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) for Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) or Lung Metastases
This phase I trial studies the side effects and how well papaverine hydrochloride and stereotactic radiation therapy body (SBRT) work in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer. Papaverine hydrochloride may help radiation therapy work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the radiation therapy. Stereotactic body radiation therapy uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method can kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue. Giving papaverine hydrochloride with SBRT may work in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
I. To assess the safety and tolerability of concurrent papaverine hydrochloride (PPV), and lung SBRT in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) or lung metastases.
I. To assess primary tumor control rate, local control rate, local-regional recurrence free-survival (LRRFS), disease-free survival (DFS), distant-metastasis-free survival (DMFS), and overall survival (OS).
II. To assess whether blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies can predict which patients may respond best to PPV + SBRT, and detect changes in oxygenation before and after PPV administration.
III. To assess whether blood-based micro ribonucleic acid (miRNA) biomarkers can predict which patients may respond best to PPV + SBRT.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of papaverine hydrochloride.
Patients undergo BOLD functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and receive papaverine hydrochloride intravenously (IV) on day 1. Within 30-90 minutes, patients undergo a second BOLD fMRI. Patients then receive papaverine hydrochloride IV and within 30-90 minutes after dose undergo SBRT for a up to 4-5 sessions over 2 weeks.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 4-6 weeks, 3 and 6 months, 1 and 2 years, then every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for 3 years.
Histologically or cytologically proven NSCLC for whom SBRT to a single lesion has been chosen as the primary treatment modality (planned dose 50 Gy in 4-5 daily fractions). Patients with lung metastases from solid tumors are eligible.
Patients must have a tumor =< 5 cm as defined by computed tomography (CT) largest axial dimension. Presence of adjacent nodules considered neoplastic in the same lobe or other ipsilateral lobe are allowed as long as the nodule(s) can be encompassed in an SBRT gross tumor volume (GTV) of =< 5 cm, within 1 isocenter. Multiple isocenters are not allowed
No prior radiation resulting in overlapping fields
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0-2
Must be able to undergo correlative research MRIs
No active connective tissue disease (scleroderma) or idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)
No history of complete atrioventricular block, hepatic dysfunction (e.g. cirrhosis), or priapism
Within 30 days of registration: patients must have vital signs, history/physical examination, and laboratory studies (liver function tests, creatinine or creatinine clearance assessment)
Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks in the opinion of investigator
Women of child-bearing potential (WOCBP) must have a negative pregnancy test within 14 days of registration. Urine human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is an acceptable pregnancy assessment. Nursing women may participate only if nursing is discontinued, due to the possibility of harm to nursing infants from the treatment regimen
Within 90 days of registration: pulmonary function tests (PFTs) including forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV-1) and diffusion capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO)
Albumin >= 2.5 g/dL (within 30 days of study registration)
Total bilirubin =< 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) (within 30 days of study registration)
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) =< 2.5 x ULN (within 30 days of study registration)
Creatinine =< 1.5 x ULN or calculated creatinine >= 50 mL/min, calculated by the Cockcroft-Gault formula or 24-hour urine creatinine clearance >= 50 mL/min (within 30 days of study registration)
History of another malignancy
Exception: Subjects who have been disease-free for >= 3 years, or subjects with a history of localized prostate cancer, in situ carcinoma (e.g. breast, cervix, oral cavity), differentiated thyroid neoplasm, completely resected non-melanoma skin cancer, are eligible
Any serious and/or unstable pre-existing medical disorder (aside from malignancy exception above), psychiatric disorder, or other conditions that could interfere with subject?s safety, obtaining informed consent or compliance to the study procedures, in the opinion of the investigator
Pregnancy or breastfeeding: Women of child-bearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry, the duration of study participation and for 4 months after the last dose of study treatment. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately. No breastfeeding while patient is on study
Patients with history of pneumonectomy
Prior cytotoxic chemotherapy, molecularly-targeted agents (e.g. erlotinib, crizotinib), or immunotherapy unless >= 2 weeks from last dose. Patients can start chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or other systemic therapy after completion of SBRT, but this should be planned for ≥ 2 weeks from last SBRT dose.
History of active connective tissue disease (scleroderma), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pneumonitis
Hepatic insufficiency resulting in jaundice and/or coagulation defects, or not meeting laboratory values (albumin, total bilirubin, AST/ALT)
