To determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) and toxicities of Pemetrexed (Alimta) when administered concurrently with carboplatin and thoracic radiation therapy.
To determine, qualitatively, the occurrence of local tumor responses identified with this regimen.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects (good and bad) of ALIMTA plus Carboplatin or ALIMTA plus Cisplatin on you and your small cell lung cancer.
The purpose of this study is to establish the objective response rate (complete response + partial response), following treatment with Alimta plus VELCADE, Alimta alone, or VELCADE alone i...
Avastin is a novel antiangiogenic agent that has recently been shown to improve response rates and survival of patients with advanced nonsquamous non-small cell lung cancer when added to f...
The purpose of the study is to measure tumor response rates for three schedules of Alimta(LY231514) in combination with gemcitabine in patients with locally advanced or metastatic non smal...
To study the efficacy of Alimta as a single agent in thymic cancers
We hypothesized that higher cardiac doses correlates with clinically significant cardiotoxicity after standard-dose chemoradiation therapy (CRT) (∼60 Gy) for inoperable non-small cell lung cancer (N...
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...
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...
