Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Phase 1 Trial of Endobronchial Ultrasound-Guided Transbronchial Needle Injection of Cisplatin for Stage IV Lung Cancer
The goal of the study is to identify the maximum tolerated dose of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial injection (EBUS-TBNI) of cisplatin for Stage IV lung cancer.
Multiple studies have demonstrated feasibility and safety of delivering cisplatin directly into lung tumors using endobronchial ultrasound guided-transbronchial needle injection (EBUS-TBNI). This technique relies on the use of a bronchoscope with an integrated ultrasound transducer allowing real-time visualization of, and delivery of cisplatin into, tumors lying in proximity to the central airways. Prior work has utilized this technique to treat loco regional recurrence in a previously radiated field. The goal of the current study is to identify the initial dose for intratumoral cisplatin.
Age 18 years or above
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance score 0-2
Have known or suspected metastatic NSCLC at time of enrollment (including patients who progress on initial therapy or are found to have metastatic disease during therapy and are not excluded based on 8.2 below).
Ability and willingness to provide informed consent
Rapid on-site cytopathologic examination (ROSE) performed during the procedure returns likely NSCLC (informed consent will occur prior to the procedure). No research procedures will be performed if ROSE is non-diagnostic.
A CT scan of the chest (with or without contrast) within the prior 3 months.
The presence of an EBUS accessible target site. These may be primary lung cancers or metastatic sites (including when a lymph node station has been replaced by metastatic tumor), that are accessible by EBUS
Patients must have adequate organ and marrow function as defined below:
Total bilirubin ≤ institutional upper limit of normal (ULN)
AST(SGOT)/ALT(SGPT) ≤ institutional ULN
Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) ≥60 mL/min/1.73 m2 via CKD EPI)
Patients with a prior or concurrent malignancy whose natural history or treatment does not have the potential to interfere with the safety or efficacy assessment of the investigational regimen are eligible for this trial
Use of an investigational agent in prior 30 days
Treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy within the past 30 days
Prior (within the last 12 months) or ongoing radiation treatment to the study NSCLC
Allergy to cisplatin or its derivatives
Patient not appropriate for the research study based on physician discretion
