Study Evaluating EKB-569 in Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

2014-07-23 21:52:18 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This non-randomized, open-label, outpatient clinical trial is designed to assess the safety and efficacy of daily orally administered EKB-569 in subjects with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. Patients must have been previously treated with a platinum- and docetaxel-based therapy either given concurrently or as separate regimens.

The primary objective of the study is to assess the clinical activity of EKB-569 administered orally as a second-line or later stage treatment in subjects with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. Secondary objectives include:

- To further evaluate the safety of EKB-569

- To explore additional clinical activity parameters

- To explore subject survival

- To evaluate the pharmacokinetics of EKB-569

- To assess subject reported outcomes

EKB-569 will be administered orally as a single-agent. Eligible subjects will take EKB-569 daily as long as they do not have progressive disease and are tolerating treatment.

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...

Early PET-CT After Stereotactic Radiotherapy for Stage 1 Non-small Cell Lung Carcinoma Is Predictive of Local Control.

Radiological evaluation after stereotactic-body-radiotherapy (SBRT) for non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is often difficult due to lung radiation-induced image modifications on computed tomograph...

Downregulation of BarH-like homeobox 2 promotes cell proliferation, migration and aerobic glycolysis through Wnt/β-catenin signaling, and predicts a poor prognosis in non-small cell lung carcinoma.

Human BarH-like homeobox 2 (Barx2), a homeodomain factor of the Bar family, plays a critical role in cell adhesion and cytoskeleton remodeling, and has been reported in an increasing array of tumor ...

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.
