Asymptomatic Brain Metastasis in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

2014-08-27 03:13:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The prognosis of NSCLC patients with asymptomatic brain metastasis, who are not treated with SRS or WBRT has not been fully investigated yet. This randomized phase III trial is conducted to determine the exact role of SRS in NSCLC patients with asymptomatic oligo brain metastases whether early treatment with SRS would improve survival even in patients with asymptomatic brain metastasis.

Intervention

stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)

Location

Samsung Medical Center

Stereotactic Radiosurgery in Treating Patients With Stage I or Stage II Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

RATIONALE: Stereotactic radiosurgery can send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose o...

Pembrolizumab and Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Melanoma or Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Brain Metastases

This pilot trial studies the side effects of giving pembrolizumab together with stereotactic radiosurgery to treat patients with melanoma or non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to t...

Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Systemic Dose Chemotherapy for Locally Advanced Lung Cancer

This is a pilot study looking at using stereotactic radiosurgery and full dose chemotherapy to treat stage II and III lung cancer that is not amendmable to surgical reseaction.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery in Treating Patients Undergoing Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy For Stage III Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from divid...

Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Erlotinib in Treating Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Brain Metastases

RATIONALE: Erlotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Stereotactic radi...

Early PET-CT After Stereotactic Radiotherapy for Stage 1 Non-small Cell Lung Carcinoma Is Predictive of Local Control.

Radiological evaluation after stereotactic-body-radiotherapy (SBRT) for non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is often difficult due to lung radiation-induced image modifications on computed tomograph...

Nomograms for predicting disease progression in patients of Stage I non-small cell lung cancer treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy.

Non-local progression is a major concern in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). Herein we aimed to create a pre-treatment prognostic nomogram for pat...

Genomic Features of Response to Combination Immunotherapy in Lung Cancer.

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...

Local control for clinical stage I non-small cell lung cancer treated with 5-fraction stereotactic body radiation therapy is not associated with treatment schedule.

Clinical concern remains regarding the relationship between consecutive (QD) versus nonconsecutive (QoD) lung stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) treatment schedules and outcomes for clinical s...

Radiotherapy and Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors in Stage IV Non-small Cell Lung Cancer: Real-life Experience.

To investigate the role of conventional radiotherapy (RT) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in patients with epidermal growth factor (EGFR)-mutant or anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrange...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.

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.
