Extensive Small Cell Lung Cancer Treatment Using An Investigational Drug Plus Chemotherapy In Chemotherapy-Naive Adults

2014-07-24 14:34:03 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will gather and compare data about the effectiveness and safety of two different treatments for extensive Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) in patients who have not received previous chemotherapy. One treatment will use an investigational drug in combination with an FDA approved chemotherapy. The other treatment will use a combination of two FDA approved chemotherapy drugs.

NDRG1 disruption alleviates cisplatin/sodium glycididazole-induced DNA damage response and apoptosis in ERCC1-defective lung cancer cells.

Resistance to platinum-based chemotherapy becomes a major obstacle in lung cancer treatment. Compensatory activation of nucleotide excision repair (NER) pathway is the major mechanism accounting for c...

LncRNA TATDN1 contributes to the cisplatin resistance of non-small cell lung cancer through TATDN1/miR-451/TRIM66 axis.

Chemoresistance has been considered to be a major obstacle for cancer therapy clinically. Long non-coding RNAs (LncRNAs) are asscociated with the development, prognosis and drug-resistance of non-smal...

Pulling a MAST1 on Cisplatin Resistance.

In this issue of Cancer Cell, Jin and colleagues use a kinome-wide screen to identify MAST1 as a cause of cisplatin resistance. They demonstrate that this kinase is a novel activator of MEK1 and the M...

Topotecan monotherapy for the treatment of relapsed small cell lung cancer in elderly patients: A retrospective analysis.

Topotecan is one of the most active chemotherapeutic drugs for small cell lung cancer (SCLC). However, its efficacy in elderly patients with SCLC has not been validated. This study evaluated the feasi...

Gemcitabine and cisplatin for treatment of lung cancer in vitro and vivo.

To evaluate the antitumor activity of gemcitabine (GEM), cisplatin (DDP) as well as the combination of these two agents in lung cancer cells and mice.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.

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 semisynthetic derivative of PODOPHYLLOTOXIN that exhibits antitumor activity. Etoposide inhibits DNA synthesis by forming a complex with topoisomerase II and DNA. This complex induces breaks in double stranded DNA and prevents repair by topoisomerase II binding. Accumulated breaks in DNA prevent entry into the mitotic phase of cell division, and lead to cell death. Etoposide acts primarily in the G2 and S phases of the cell cycle.

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.
