This study is a Phase 3, global, multi-center, open-label study of patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer. Eligible patients will be randomly assigned to receive either pemet...
This randomized, Phase III, multicenter, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of atezolizumab (anti-programmed death ligand 1 [anti-PD-L...
The Phase I portion of the study is to assess the maximum tolerated dose of vorinostat when combined with carboplatin plus etoposide. The Phase II portion is to determine progression-free...
This randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled phase III, multicenter study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of SHR-1316 in combination with carboplatin plus (+) etopos...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether the addition of Ipilimumab to Etoposide and Platinum therapy will extend the lives of patients with Extensive-Stage Disease Small Cell Lung...
Carboplatin plus etoposide (CE) is a standard treatment for elderly patients with extensive-disease small cell lung cancer (ED-SCLC). However, amrubicin monotherapy (AMR) may be a feasible alternative...
17-(Allylamino)-17-Demethoxygeldanamycin Enhances Etoposide-Induced Cytotoxicity via the Downregulation of Xeroderma Pigmentosum Complementation Group C Expression in Human Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma Cells.
Etoposide (VP16) is a topoisomerase II inhibitor and has been used for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group C (XPC) protein is a DNA damage ...
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...
There are various mechanisms underlying the resistance of EGFR-mutant lung adenocarcinoma to epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs). We herein report a case of pulmona...
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.
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.
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)
