Platinum-based chemotherapy had long played a role as standard therapy for the first-line treatment of advanced or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, immune checkpoint inhibitors s...
Preclinical and early clinical studies suggest that combining epigenetic agents with checkpoint inhibitors can potentially improve outcomes in patients with previously treated advanced non-small cell ...
Treatment options for patients with advanced esophageal or esophagogastric junction (EGJ) cancer are limited. Current guidelines for first-line treatment of advanced esophageal or EGJ cancer recommend...
Treatment of advanced-stage or metastatic non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) without EGFR mutations or ALK rearrangements, which can now be treated with molecularly targeted therapies, had been base...
It is well known that staging of patients with AL amyloidosis at diagnosis predicts for survival, but there is a paucity of literature delineating the prognostic value of these systems at relapse. We ...
QUILT-2.023: A Study of ALT-803, a Fusion Protein Activator of Natural Killer and T-Cells, in Combination With Pembrolizumab vs Pembrolizumab Alone as First-Line Treatment for Patients With Metastatic NSCLC.
This is a phase 2, open-label, randomized study to compare the safety and efficacy of combination therapy with ALT-803 and pembrolizumab (experimental arm) versus pembrolizumab alone (cont...
The purpose of this Chinese extension study is to evaluate efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab plus cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) chemotherapy versus placebo plus cisplatin and 5-FU...

This study will recruit 520 treatment-naive and 150 treatment-experienced patients to take the first line or second line of antiviral therapy. This study aims to set up a well-trained clin...
A Study of Carboplatin-Paclitaxel/Nab-Paclitaxel Chemotherapy With or Without Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in Adults With First Line Metastatic Squamous Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (MK-3475-407/KEYNOTE-407)-China Extension Study
In this China extension study, carboplatin and paclitaxel or nano particle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel) with or without pembrolizumab (MK-3475, KEYTRUDA®) will be administere...
CELL LINE derived from the ovary of the Chinese hamster, Cricetulus griseus (CRICETULUS). The species is a favorite for cytogenetic studies because of its small chromosome number. The cell line has provided model systems for the study of genetic alterations in cultured mammalian cells.
Work that is a report of a pre-planned, usually controlled, clinical study of the safety and efficacy of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques after phase II trials. A large enough group of patients is studied and closely monitored by physicians for adverse response to long-term exposure, over a period of about three years in either the United States or a foreign country.
Comparative studies to verify the effectiveness of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques determined in phase II studies. During these trials, patients are monitored closely by physicians to identify any adverse reactions from long-term use. These studies are performed on groups of patients large enough to identify clinically significant responses and usually last about three years. This concept includes phase III studies conducted in both the U.S. and in other countries.
Eukaryotic cell line obtained in a quiescent or stationary phase which undergoes conversion to a state of unregulated growth in culture, resembling an in vitro tumor. It occurs spontaneously or through interaction with viruses, oncogenes, radiation, or drugs/chemicals.
Colloids with a gaseous dispersing phase and either liquid (fog) or solid (smoke) dispersed phase; used in fumigation or in inhalation therapy; may contain propellant agents.
