The primary purpose of this study is to estimate the number of patients with non-small cell lung cancer whose tumor responds to the treatments given in this study.
To study the efficacy and tolerability of gemcitabine/platinum chemotherapy in non small cell lung cancer
The purpose of this study is to select the more promising method of combining cetuximab with gemcitabine for treating patients with advanced non small-cell lung cancer, who are not candida...
The study is designed to explore the potential of the epigenetic agent RRx-001 to sensitize small cell and non-small cell lung cancer and high grade neuroendocrine tumor patients who previ...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate superiority with regard to progression free survival (PFS) based on an Independent Review Committee (IRC) assessment of avelumab versus platinum...
The aim of this study was to prospectively evaluate the role of various quantitative and semiquantitative metabolic parameters derived from dynamic and static baseline F-FDG PET/CT in prediction of ov...
Gemcitabine-cisplatin combination is one of the most used schedules for non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Aiming to enhance dose intensity and reduce toxicity, the original 4-week schedule was modif...
We evaluated the feasibility of maintenance treatment using UFT (a combination of tegafur and uracil) after adjuvant platinum-based chemotherapy in patients with resected lung cancer. A prospective fe...
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of gemcitabine (GEM) at 30 min standard-dose infusion (30 min-SDI) compared with prolonged low-dose infusion (P-LDI) in patients with advanced non-small-cell lung c...
Effective predictive biomarkers for selection of patients benefiting from adjuvant platinum-based chemotherapy in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are needed. Based on a previously validated methodo...
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).
Platinum. A heavy, soft, whitish metal, resembling tin, atomic number 78, atomic weight 195.09, symbol Pt. (From Dorland, 28th ed) It is used in manufacturing equipment for laboratory and industrial use. It occurs as a black powder (platinum black) and as a spongy substance (spongy platinum) and may have been known in Pliny's time as "alutiae".
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.
