Temozolomide for Treatment of Brain Metastases From Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (Study P03247AM3)(COMPLETED)

2014-08-27 03:54:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate improvement in overall survival for the combination of whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) plus temozolomide (TMZ) versus WBRT alone. Secondary objective is to demonstrate an improvement in the time to radiological CNS progression with the addition of TMZ to WBRT.

This randomized phase II trial studies how well temozolomide with or without veliparib works in treating patients with small cell lung cancer that has returned or does not respond to treat...

Safety and Tolerability of Low-Dose Temozolomide During Whole Brain Radiation in Patients With Cerebral Metastases From Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer (Study P04071)(TERMINATED)

This is a phase II, randomized, multicenter, open-label study designed to assess the safety and tolerability of concomitant chemotherapy with low-dose temozolomide during whole brain radia...

Talazoparib and Low-Dose Temozolomide in Treating Participants With Relapsed or Refractory Extensive-Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer

This phase II trial studies how effective talazoparib and temozolomide are for treating participants with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer that has come back after an initial chemoth...

Temozolomide for Relapsed Sensitive or Refractory Small Cell Lung Cancer

Associations between history of chronic lung disease and non-small cell lung carcinoma in Maryland: variations by sex and race.

Lung cancer is a multifactorial malignancy for which some risk factors, such as chronic lung diseases, their interactions with smoking, and how they differ by race and sex, are not fully understood. W...

Targeted Therapy With Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase Inhibitor (Alectinib) in Adolescent Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma: 18F-NaF PET/CT in Response Evaluation.

Primary lung adenocarcinoma is extremely rare in the pediatric age group. We report an 18-year-old man with non-small cell lung carcinoma stage IV with brain and bone metastatic. Lung biopsy showed ex...

Somatostatin and CXCR4 expression patterns in adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the lung relative to small cell lung cancer.

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: One Disease or Many.

Lung cancer is classified as a single entity comprised of multiple histological subtypes. But how similar are these subtypes on a genetic level? This paper aims to address this question through a conc...

Targeted inhibition of programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) and its ligand (PD-L1) has emerged as first-line therapy for advanced non-small cell lung cancer. While patients with high PD-L1 expression have i...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

An anaplastic, highly malignant, and usually bronchogenic carcinoma composed of small ovoid cells with scanty neoplasm. It is characterized by a dominant, deeply basophilic nucleus, and absent or indistinct nucleoli. (From Stedman, 25th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1286-7)

A carcinoma discovered by Dr. Margaret R. Lewis of the Wistar Institute in 1951. This tumor originated spontaneously as a carcinoma of the lung of a C57BL mouse. The tumor does not appear to be grossly hemorrhagic and the majority of the tumor tissue is a semifirm homogeneous mass. (From Cancer Chemother Rep 2 1972 Nov;(3)1:325) It is also called 3LL and LLC and is used as a transplantable malignancy.
