Intensified Chemo-immuno-radiotherapy With Durvalumab for Stage III Non-Small Cell Lung Cancers

2020-01-19 11:04:30 | BioPortfolio


This is a phase II study that will assess if Durvalumab (MEDI4736) used as induction chemo-immunotherapy followed by concurrent chemo-immuno-radiotherapy and consolidation immunotherapy may improve oncologic outcomes compared with standard of care chemoradiation followed by durvalumab (as in the PACIFIC trial) with a reasonable safety profile.


Prospective, non-randomized, open label, single arm, multi-institutional, phase 2 study, including patients with stage III non-small cell lung cancer able to receive concurrent chemoradiation. Eligible patients will then receive treatment as follows:

Induction chemo-immunotherapy Two 21-day cycles of carboplatin, paclitaxel and durvalumab will be given BEFORE concurrent chemo-immuno-radiotherapy.

Thereafter, patients without progressive disease (or patients with disease progression that is still locally advanced and can be safely encompassed within tolerable radiation fields) will receive concurrent chemo-immuno-radiotherapy, as follows:

Concurrent chemo-immuno-radiotherapy Concurrent carboplatin, paclitaxel, and durvalumab with radiation therapy, initiated preferably 3-5 weeks after the last dose of induction chemo-immunotherapy.

Thereafter, patients without progressive disease will receive consolidation immunotherapy, as follows:

Consolidation immunotherapy Twelve 28-day cycles of durvalumab will be given, initiated preferably within one week following concurrent chemo-immuno-radiotherapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.

A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.

Absence of air in the entire or part of a lung, such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. Pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction, lung compression, fibrotic contraction, or other factors.

Primary or metastatic neoplasms of the CEREBELLUM. Tumors in this location frequently present with ATAXIA or signs of INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION due to obstruction of the fourth ventricle. Common primary cerebellar tumors include fibrillary ASTROCYTOMA and cerebellar HEMANGIOBLASTOMA. The cerebellum is a relatively common site for tumor metastases from the lung, breast, and other distant organs. (From Okazaki & Scheithauer, Atlas of Neuropathology, 1988, p86 and p141)

A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.
