The study will enroll approximately 33 EGFr positive chemotherapy-naive stage IV non-small cell lung cancer patients. Patients will receive cetuximab in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel for two cycles or until disease progression or until the patient exhibits intolerable toxicities. Patients will be evaluated for efficacy and safety throughout the duration of the study.
The study will enroll approximately 33 chemotherapy-naive stage IV non-small cell lung cancer patients. Patients will receive 3-week cycles of therapy with the exception of the initial cycle where the patients will receive 4 cycles of therapy. Patients will be enrolled after EGFr expression is confirmed and the study inclusion and exclusion criteria are met. An initial dose of cetuximab will be administered prior to the initiation of chemotherapy. Thereafter, cetuximab will be infused weekly. On the first day of each cycle, a paclitaxel infusion will be administered post completion of the cetuximab infusion, immediately followed by a carboplatin infusion. Patients will receive cetuximab in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel for two cycles or until disease progression or until the patient exhibits intolerable toxicities. Patients will be evaluated for a tumor response at the end of every two cycles of therapy and evaluated for safety throughout the study.

The purpose of the study is to determine if the combination of cetuximab, carboplatin and paclitaxel will shrink a specific type of lung cancer known as non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)....
This randomized phase II trial is studying how well giving carboplatin and paclitaxel together with cetuximab and/or cixutumumab (IMC-A12) works in treating patients with stage IIIB or sta...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from di...
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies such as cetuximab can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Drugs used in chemo...
A Phase III Study of MPDL3280A (Anti-PD-L1) in Combination With Carboplatin + Paclitaxel or Carboplatin + Nab-paclitaxel Compared With Carboplatin + Nab-paclitaxel in Patients With Stage IV Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
This randomized, open-label study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of MPDL3280A in combination with carboplatin + paclitaxel or carboplatin + nab-paclitaxel compared with treatment wi...
Carcinosarcoma is a rare histological type of non-small cell carcinoma (NSCLC), and its prognosis has been reported to be worse compared with other NSCLCs. Nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-P...
Nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel), a microtubule inhibitor, has demonstrated clinical efficacy in the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) either as monotherap...
Nab-paclitaxel maintenance therapy following carboplatin + nab-paclitaxel combination therapy in chemotherapy naïve patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer: multicenter, open-label, single-arm phase II trial.
Background A global multicenter study demonstrated superiority of carboplatin + nab-paclitaxel (PTX) therapy compared to carboplatin + PTX in terms of response rate (RR) and non-inferiority in terms o...
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 20 insertions comprise 4-9% of EGFR mutated non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Despite being an oncogenic driver, they are associated with primary resista...
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...
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.
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...
