Study of Plasma NGS for Assessment, Characterization, Evaluation of Patients With ALK Resistance

ALK-positive lung cancer is a subtype of lung cancer which carries a change in a gene called ALK (anaplastic lymphoma kinase). There are now many drugs for patients with ALK-positive lung cancer that slow cancer growth. However, after some time, just as bacteria evolve resistance to antibiotics, ALK-positive lung cancers evolve ways to avoid the therapies by developing new mutations so the drugs lost their effectiveness. These new mutations can potentially be treated with a dif...

Study on Fluids Associated to Lung Cancer

The diagnosis of lung cancer is the first cause of cancer deaths for man and woman. It requires invasive procedures (at least endoscopy, transthoracic puncture, or surgery). This study is about the set up of an innovative test for lung cancer prognosis, based on biopsies and surgical material : LungCancerTest, with the creation of a start-up in progress. The main goal of this study is to approve the diagnostic value of the molecular signature of the 26 genes (LungCancer...

Collection of Blood Samples in Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

This pilot research trial studies the collection of blood samples in monitoring tumor specific mutations in patients with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Collecting blood samples may help measure the changes in lung cancer, better learn methods to track cancer in the bloodstream, and improve cancer treatments.

Chemoresistance and Involvement of the NOTCH Pathway in Patients With Lung Adenocarcinoma

Every year in France, 30.000 deaths are due to lung cancer and 39.500 new cases of this disease are diagnosed (INCa 2014). Patients suffering from locally advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), stage IIIa, usually undergo a multimodality treatment including chemotherapy with platinum compounds before surgery (called neoadjuvant chemotherapy or induction chemotherapy). The reason of this combined modality treatment is the really poor prognosis of patients presenting a dise...

Biopsies will then be taken during follow-up exams prior surgery but after neoa...

Anticancer Activity of Nicotinamide on Lung Cancer

Nicotinamide is an inhibitor of human sirtuins (HDAC III), and is found to re-activate epigenetically silenced tumor suppressors, RUNX3 (runt-related gene 3) and others, in cancer cells. Nicotinamide was found to be effective in several animal cancer models including lung, bladder, liver, etc. The purpose of this study is to determine whether nicotinamide is also effective in the treatment of human lung cancer.

GRN1005 for Brain Metastases From Breast or Lung Cancer

Background: - Brain metastases are cancer cells that have spread to the brain from primary cancers in other organs. These tumors can be removed surgically. However, researchers are trying to find better ways to treat brain metastases. A new drug, GRN1005, has been designed to cross into the brain and deliver the cancer treatment drug paclitaxel to treat tumors. Researchers want to see how well GRN1005 works on brain metastases from breast or lung cancer. Objectives: ...

The Canada Lymph Node Score

For patients diagnosed with early stage Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) on preoperative computerized tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans, surgical resection is usually the preferred method of treatment. However, to be eligible for surgery, current guidelines require that the cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes in the chest cavity. To evaluate these lymph nodes, the standard of care is to undergo an endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) procedure, wher...

Radiation Therapy in Patients With Limited-Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer in Complete Remission

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and prevent the spread of cancer to the brain. It is not yet known if standard-dose radiation therapy is more effective than high-dose radiation therapy in preventing the spread of limited-stage small cell lung cancer cells to the brain. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is comparing two different regimens of radiation therapy to see how well they work in treating patients with limited-stage small ...

Pathological Comparisons of Surgical Open Lung Biopsies and Cryobiopsies in Non-IPF ILD

Pathological comparisons of surgical open lung biopsies and cryobiopsies in non-IPF ILD. Patients with non-IPF ILD eligible for an open lung biopsy will undergo cryobiopsy in the same time. Between observers agreement will be assessed for each pairs of samples.

Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Registry

This trial will evaluate two separate groups of patients with stage IIIB/IV non-small cell lung cancer. The objective of Group 1 is to investigate an FDA-approved drug in stage IIIB/IV non-small cell lung cancer patients that has spread to the bones. The objective of Group 2 is to see if a blood test can be used to predict when cancer-related bone lesions develop. This trial is seeking patients 18 years or older that have been diagnosed with Stage IIIB or Stage IV non-small ce...

The investigators will perform a multicenter, randomized controlled trial to 1) assess if surveillance with whole body Positron Emission Tomography combined with Computer Tomography (PET/CT) including the brain can increase the number of treatable relapses and 2) concurrently collect liquid biopsies for later analysis, po...

The Role of the Vagus Nerve in Tumor-to-Brain Communication in Lung Cancer Patients

the aim of this study is to measure brain metabolism in patients with lung cancer.FDG uptake in the brain in patients with malignant tumors will be compared to the amount of tracer activity found in patients who have benign pulmonary process. if differences between the brain uptake of FDG in the two groups will be found, further assessment will be performed in order to evaluate if such differences could be attributed and specifically localized to the brain regions innervated by...

Azacitidine and Cisplatin in Patients With Advanced Lung or Head and Neck Cancer

The standard of care for head and neck and lung cancer includes chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. For patients with cancer of head and neck or lung that recurs after surgery and/or radiation, or has spread to other parts of body, chemotherapy using cisplatin can slow down tumor growth and extend lifespan. The study drug, azacitidine, can block the ability of some cancer cells to replicate, and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in myelodysplastic ...

Testing Whether the Use of Brain Scans Alone Instead of Brain Scans Plus Preventive Brain Radiation Affects Lifespan in Patients With Small Cell Lung Cancer

This phase III trial studies magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) surveillance and prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) to see how well they work compared to MRI surveillance alone in treating patients with small cell lung cancer. MRI scans are used to monitor the possible spread of the cancer with an MRI machine over time. PCI is radiation therapy that is delivered to the brain in hopes of preventing spread of cancer into the brain. The use of brain MRI alone may reduce side eff...
