The main purpose of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability and anti-tumor activity of the experimental study drug pembrolizumab (also known as Keytruda or MK-3475) in people with...
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide and in the U.K alone; there are 38,000 new cases of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) a year. The new treatment being teste...
To compare the efficacy of AM0010 in combination with pembrolizumab versus pembrolizumab alone in patients with metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer as measured by objective response rate
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab plus epacadostat compared to pembrolizumab plus placebo as first-line treatment in participants with metas...
This is a randomized single-institution, phase II, open-label clinical trial of neoadjuvant pembrolizumab with or without low-dose stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT) in stage I-IIIA non-...
To assess the efficacy of maintenance pembrolizumab in extensive-stage small cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients, after treatment with platinum/etoposide.
Lung cancer is a major health concern worldwide, but new immunotherapeutic treatments for lung cancer have shown great promise and the prognosis for many severe cancers including lung cancer has been ...
PD-L1 expression determination defines eligibility for treatment with pembrolizumab in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This study was designed to better define which value a...
Platinum-based chemotherapy had long played a role as standard therapy for the first-line treatment of advanced or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, immune checkpoint inhibitors s...
In this issue of Cancer Cell, Hellmann et al. describe in two clinical trials the importance of tumor mutational burden as an independent predictive marker for outcomes with combination nivolumab plu...
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 quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
A cell adhesion molecule that contains extracellular immunoglobulin V and C2 domains. It mediates homophilic and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion independently of calcium, and acts as a tumor suppressor in NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CANCER (NSCLC) cells. Its interaction with NATURAL KILLER CELLS is important for their cytotoxicity and its expression by MAST CELLS plays a role in their interaction with neurons; it may also function in synapse assembly, nerve growth and differentiation.
