Research Study Summary

Sunitinib as Maintenance Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage III or Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Previously Treated With Combination Chemotherapy


Rationale: Sunitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether sunitinib is more effective than a placebo in treating non-small cell lung cancer.

Purpose: This randomized phase III trial is studying sunitinib to see how well it works when given as maintenance therapy compared with a placebo in treating patients with stage III or stage IV non-small cell lung cancer previously treated with combination chemotherapy.
