This study is a multinational study to compare enzastaurin versus placebo in the treatment of patients with brain metastases of lung cancer. Approximately 108 patients will be randomly assigned to receive either enzastaurin or placebo after having completed whole brain radiotherapy.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
Non Small Cell Lung Cancer

Study of Pemetrexed + Carboplatin + Bevacizumab + Enzastaurin Versus Pemetrexed + Carboplatin + Bevacizumab + Placebo in Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Who Have Not Been Previously Treated With Chemotherapy
The purpose of this study is to determine if Pemetrexed plus Carboplatin plus Bevacizumab plus Enzastaurin, followed by maintenance Bevacizumab plus Enzastaurin can extend survival time wi...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the combination of enzastaurin and pemetrexed can extend survival time without progression of disease for patients who have advanced or metasta...
Phase I: A study to see what doses of Enzastaurin and Erlotinib are best tolerated by patients with solid tumor cancer. Phase II: A study to see how long patients with non-small cell lu...
The purposes of this study are to determine: The safety of enzastaurin plus pemetrexed with carboplatin, pemetrexed with carboplatin, or docetaxel with carboplatin and any side effects th...
To compare the difference of a marker of cellular proliferation in all bronchial biopsy specimens of former smokers stratified by lung cancer risk, collected before and after treatment per...
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.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
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...
