BMS-275183 given orally twice weekly to patients pretreated for locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC will show anti-tumor activity in any of the 3 separate cohorts of the patients enrolled:
- Cohort I: Patients previously treated with one taxane containing regimen.
- Cohort II: Patients previously treated with a platinum based but non-taxane containing regimen.
- Cohort III: Patients previously treated with both a chemotherapy regimen and one EGFR-TKI (epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitor) compound.
Patients in cohorts I and II should have not been treated with a prior EGFR-TKI compound. Prior treatment with a VEGFR (vascular endothelial growth factor receptor) inhibitor compound is allowed for all the patients provided that the VEGFR inhibitor is not also an EGFR inhibitor.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

A phase I-II dose ranging study of BMS-275183 (oral taxane) in combination with pemetrexed (Alimta) in patients with recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). The safety and efficacy o...
The purpose of this study is to determine what effects Esomeprazole (Nexium) has on increasing or decreasing the amount of oral taxane in the blood, and to determine the safety of oral tax...
The first purpose of this study is to determine how the body absorbs, metabolizes, and eliminates a single dose of BMS-275183 (labeled with radioactive carbon). Secondly, to measure the le...
Lung cancer is among the most common cancers in the world and its incidence continues to increase. Chemotherapy for patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) has been under investig...
The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn about the safety and tolerability of daily BMS-275183 in patients with advanced cancer.
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...
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the world, and non-small cell lung cancer accounts for > 75% of all lung cancer cases. Cisplatin-based concurrent chemoradiotherapy has bec...
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...
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.
GILOTRIF (afatinib) is a kinase inhibitor indicated for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions or exon 21 (L8...
