The options for patients with locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who are not candidates for a standard definitive chemoradiotherapy regime are meagre. These are patients who are not fit for a chemoradiotherapy schedule of 66 Gy in 2 Gy fractions due to either tumour extent, resulting in excessive dose to the healthy tissue in the thorax, or with performance status not supporting seven weeks of intensive treatment. The aim is to study the efficiency as well as the safety of a new treatment option of heterogeneously hypofractionated radiotherapy for patients with locally advanced NSCLC who are not candidates for standard, high-dose chemoradiotherapy, either due to excessive irradiation of normal tissue (defined as category A patients) or due to fragility of the patient (category B patients).
The main purpose of this study is to find out what effects (good and bad) ceritinib (Zykadia®) used in combination with docetaxel (Taxotere®) will have on participants and their cancer. The results will help to determine the best safe dose of the combination of the medications Ceritinib (Zykadia®) and docetaxel (Taxotere®) and to find out if this combination of drugs will help people that have this type of Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).
This is a Prospective, Multicenter, Randomized Controlled study to evaluate Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) as a potential treatment for stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that has a mutated epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and has been receiving treatment with a targeted agent such as gefitinib, erlotinib and icotinib.
This study is a multi-center, Phase I/II, single arm trial to assess the safety and efficacy of the combination of oral rucaparib plus intravenous pembrolizumab as maintenance therapy in patients with stage IV non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) without progressive disease (PD), as confirmed on CT scans, after induction therapy with carboplatin/pemetrexed/pembrolizumab (CPP) triplet therapy.
The investigators will develop a radiomics signature for immune checkpoint-induced pneumonitis in 40 patients with a pulmonary event under anti-PD1 or anti-PD-L1 (cases) and 40 patients without a pulmonary event under anti-PD1 or anti-PD-L1 (controls). On the basis of the case-control study of patients treated with anti-PD1 or anti-PD-L1, they will further optimise the model using reinforcement machine learning. The model will then be validated in 300 prospective patients.
This randomized clinical trial studies the Beating Lung Cancer in Ohio protocol in improving survival in patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. The Beating Lung Cancer in Ohio protocol may help in evaluating immunotherapies and targeted therapies that prolong survival, have more favorable toxicity profiles than conventional chemotherapy and impact quality of life.
This phase II trial studies how well radical-dose image guided radiation therapy works in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body who are undergoing immunotherapy. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving radical-dose image guided radiation therapy to patients with non-small cell lung cancer may help to improve response to immunotherapy anti-cancer treatment.
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies health care coach support in reducing acute care use and cost in patients with cancer. Health care coach support may help cancer patients to make decisions about their care that matches what is important to them with symptom management.
This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well giving maintenance chemotherapy with or without stereotactic body radiation therapy works in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. Drugs used in maintenance chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, pemetrexed disodium, and gemcitabine work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Stereotactic body radiation therapy is a specialized radiation therapy that sends x-rays directly to the tumor using smaller doses over several days and may cause less damage to normal tissue. Giving maintenance chemotherapy and stereotactic body radiation therapy together may work better than maintenance chemotherapy alone in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer.
This phase II trial is studying blood and tumor tissue from patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer who are treated with nivolumab to better understand how nivolumab works. Monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread by turning on the immune system (T cells). We want to study the effects of nivolumab on the immune system (T cells) by collecting blood samples and samples from patients' tumors.
