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.

Randomised trial comparing standard chemotherapy with carboplatin and etoposide with a combination of topotecan and cisplatin in patients with inoperable lung cancer of small cell type.

Study Of Irinotecan Hydrochloride (Campto(R)) And Cisplatin Versus Etoposide And Cisplatin In Small Cell Lung Cancer

Apatinib as the Maintenance Therapy for Extensive Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer After Combined With Etoposide/Cisplatin

Apatinib has been approved as a second-line treatment for advanced gastric cancer. Several phase III clinical studies of non small cell lung cancer, liver cancer, colorectal cancer and oth...

Phase3 Study of Amrubicin With Cisplatin Versus Etoposide-cisplatin for Extensive Disease Small Cell Lung Cancer

This study drug(Amrubicin)is believed to work by stopping the tumor cell in your body from growing. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of amrubicin with cispl...

LncRNA CCAT1/miR-130a-3p axis increases cisplatin resistance in non-small-cell lung cancer cell line by targeting SOX4.

Colon cancer-associated transcript-1 (CCAT1) has been demonstrated to act as an oncogene and promote chemoresistance in several cancers. However, little is known about the underlying mechanism of CCAT...

Paclitaxel as third-line chemotherapy for small cell lung cancer failing both etoposide- and camptothecin-based chemotherapy.

Paclitaxel has been shown to have clinical activity in the treatment of small cell lung cancer (SCLC). However, its role as third-line chemotherapy for SCLC after both etoposide- and camptothecin-base...

Modified 3-week schedule of gemcitabine plus cisplatin for non-small cell lung cancer treatment.

Gemcitabine-cisplatin combination is one of the most used schedules for non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Aiming to enhance dose intensity and reduce toxicity, the original 4-week schedule was modif...

FASN-TGF-β1-PD-L1 axis contributes to the development of resistance to NK cell cytotoxicity of cisplatin-resistant lung cancer cells.

Cisplatin remains the most effective therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We previously have found cisplatin-resistant lung cancer cells (A549CisR and H157CisR) were more resistant to natur...

Risk of thromboembolism in cisplatin versus carboplatin-treated patients with lung cancer.

Carboplatin is widely used to treat lung cancer in the United States as an alternative to cisplatin. Several studies have demonstrated that cisplatin-based regimen is associated with a high frequency ...

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.
