This is a phase II, two-stage, open-label, single-agent study of the experimental drug RAD001 (everolimus) in patients with previously treated small cell lung cancer. RAD001 will be admin...
This study aims to establish a tolerable dose level and regimen of RAD001 in combination with cisplatin and etoposide (standard-of-care chemotherapy) in patients with extensive stage small...
This 2 step study aims to establish a tolerable dose level and regimen of RAD001 in patients with advanced NCLC not previously treated with systemic therapy. In step 1 of this study, RAD ...
This is a multi-centric, open-label study evaluating the efficacy and safety of RAD001 in patients with advanced (stage IV) Lung Cancer (Large Cell) with neuroendocrine differentiation tre...
Patients with metastatic renal cell cancer will be enrolled to receive RAD001 to determine whether the use of RAD001 will result in an improvement in the time to tumor progression.
In this issue of Cancer Cell, Hellmann et al. describe in two clinical trials the importance of tumor mutational burden as an independent predictive marker for outcomes with combination nivolumab plu...
Mixed-lineage leukemia protein 2 (MLL2 or KMT2D) is a histone methyltransferase whose mutation has been associated with a poor prognosis in cancer. We compared the characteristics and significance of ...
Lung cancer is highly prevalent and has an especially poor prognosis. Thus, new diagnostic and therapeutic targets are necessary. Two potential targets are somatostatin receptors (SST), which are over...
Residential radon exposure is considered the second cause of lung cancer and the first in never smokers. Nevertheless, the association between the different histological types of lung cancer and radon...
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been identified to play a crucial regulatory role in the development and progression of malignant tumors, including lung cancer. However, the function of miR-550a-3p on the pro...
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
A cell adhesion molecule that contains extracellular immunoglobulin V and C2 domains. It mediates homophilic and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion independently of calcium, and acts as a tumor suppressor in NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CANCER (NSCLC) cells. Its interaction with NATURAL KILLER CELLS is important for their cytotoxicity and its expression by MAST CELLS plays a role in their interaction with neurons; it may also function in synapse assembly, nerve growth and differentiation.

Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
