RATIONALE: Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of erlotinib hydrochloride in treating patients with previously treated non-small cell lung cancer, head and neck cancer, or esophageal cancer with precancerous lesions of the lung.
This is a phase 1 study. The goal of this study is to test the safety of combining the drugs erlotinib and ruxolitinib at different dose levels. The investigators want to find out what effects, good and/or bad, taking erlotinib and ruxolitinib has on the patients and on lung cancer. Erlotinib and ruxolitinib are FDA approved for other indications, but the use of erlotinib and ruxolitinib together has not been studied before and is not FDA-approved.
A side effect occurring in a majority of patients taking erlotinib (Tarceva®) consists of a skin rash. Sometimes, symptoms associated with the rash necessitate erlotinib dose reduction or discontinuation. Some physicians have successfully treated the erlotinib-induced rash with doxycycline. At the same time, it has been observed that in patients who develop the erlotinib rash, the cancers respond better to erlotinib treatment. This research study is designed to determine ho...
This study will test whether treatment with erlotinib plus SU011248 is better than erlotinib alone in patients with advanced/metastatic lung cancer who have received previous treatment with a platinum-based regimen
The objective of this study is to test a clinical benefit of the addition of CP 751,871 to erlotinib therapy in patients with advanced NSCLC of non adenocarcinoma histology. The primary endpoint is Overall Survival (OS).
This pilot clinical trial studies how well the Carevive Survivor Care Planning System works in improving quality of life in breast cancer survivors. A personalized survivor care plan includes a summary of a patient's cancer treatment and a customized survivor care plan and may provide beneficial information and resources.
This trial will investigate the use of the newer targeted agents erlotinib and sorafenib in patients with stage IIIB or stage IV NSCLC who have received 1-2 prior chemotherapy regimens. Patients will be randomized to receive erlotinib (150 mg/day) and sorafenib (400 mg twice daily), or erlotinib (150 mg/day) and a placebo.
This is a Phase 1/2 study comparing the safety and anti-tumor activity of erlotinib alone versus erlotinib in combination with PF-02341066 in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer.
This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double blind phase 2 study designed to compare treatment with ARQ 197 plus erlotinib to erlotinib plus placebo in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. The study will enroll patients who have had one prior chemotherapy regimen (other than erlotinib) for NSCLC.
Erlotinib has demonstrated efficacy as a single agent in patients with NSCLC and the addition of erlotinib to chemotherapy has not achieved better results in the general population. However, several preclinical and phase I studies have shown that a sequential treatment of erlotinib and chemotherapy could avoid a possible negative interaction between both drugs when administrated concomitantly, and therefore, it could improve the benefit of the combination therapy. ...
This study will compare the anti-tumor efficacy of apricoxib and erlotinib with placebo and erlotinib as measured by time to disease progression to test the hypothesis that down regulation of COX-2 and EGFR pathways in patients with up-regulated COX-2 expression in tumor will have a clinical benefit compared with erlotinib alone.
New treatment strategies have been developed in lung cancer targeting the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR). Patients with an activating mutation in the EGFR have high responds rates to the treatment and should be treated with a EGFR inhibitor as first line of treatment. Some wild type patients do as well respond but selection of these patients is more difficult. Erlotinib has been labeling with 11C and used as a new PET tracer. Accumulation of the tracer (11C-erlo...
This study will compare the anti-tumor efficacy of apricoxib and gemcitabine/erlotinib with placebo and gemcitabine/erlotinib as measured by progression-free survival to test the hypothesis that down regulation of COX-2 and EGFR pathways in patients with up-regulated COX-2 expression in tumors will have a clinical benefit compared with Gemcitabine/Erlotinib only.
RATIONALE: Erlotinib may stop the growth of cancer by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying erlotinib to see how well it works in treating patients with advanced esophageal cancer or stomach cancer.
Objectives: This study will test the ability of an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor (erlotinib) to reduce the incidence of oral cancer in the high-risk setting of oral leukoplakia with LOH in two cohorts, oral IEN (Intraepithelial neoplasia) patients with LOH in 3p and/or 9p and one other specific chromosomal locus but without cancer or oral IEN patients with LOH in 3p and/or 9p associated with curatively treated oral cancer. Researchers will test this t...
RATIONALE: Erlotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving erlotinib before surgery may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of normal tissue that needs to be removed. Studying the proteins expressed in samples of tumor tissue in the laboratory from patients with pancreatic cancer may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is looking at the effect ...
The purpose of this research study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, erlotinib has on the patient and their myelodysplastic syndrome. Erlotinib has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat non-small cell lung cancer; however, erlotinib use in this study is considered investigational as the FDA has not approved it for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome.
Advanced stage lung cancer is generally treated with anti-cancer medication called chemotherapy. Most lung cancer is caused by cigarette smoking. However, some lung cancers develop in people who never smoked or who only smoked for a short period of time. This type of lung cancer may respond to a medication called erlotinib (Tarceva). Erlotinib is an anticancer pill that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in patients with advanced lung cancer. Unfortun...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and anti-tumor effect of rociletinib with erlotinib, another EGFR TKI drug, in patients whose tumors have specific EGFR mutations and who have not previously received any EGFR TKI therapy. This study is a 'Randomized' Study. This means that upon entering the study, patients will be randomly assigned to be dosed with either rociletinib twice a day or erlotinib once a day. Patients will continue to take either rociletinib or erl...
Study Hypothesis: To estimate time to recurrence in pancreatic cancer patients treated with adjuvant erlotinib and gemcitabine. Combination therapy will be given for 4 months followed by single agent erlotinib for a total of 12 months.
To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of erlotinib as first line treatment in patients with locally advanced/metastatic (stages IIIB/IV) NSCLC, with clinical predictors of response to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (erlotinib, gefitinib), such as female gender, never-smoking status and adenocarcinoma histology. Furthermore, erlotinib-sensitivity will be correlated with the presence of EGFR mutations in exons 18, 19 and 21, in this population
RATIONALE: Determining whether erlotinib passes into the cerebrospinal fluid may help in planning treatment for some types of cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well erlotinib is able to pass into the cerebrospinal fluid of patients receiving erlotinib for stage III non-small cell lung cancer.
This is a multicenter, open-label, 2-arm study comparing erlotinib exposure in cancer patients with adequate hepatic function versus cancer patients with moderate hepatic impairment. All patients will receive a single 150 mg dose of erlotinib on Day 1 followed by 96 hours of plasma sampling for PK and protein binding studies. Patients may then enter the maintenance phase of the study and continue to receive erlotinib until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
RATIONALE: Erlotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well erlotinib works in treating patients with stage III or stage IV pancreatic cancer.
The purpose of this research study is to assess the frequency of the development of mutations (especially EGFR mutations) that lead to resistance to erlotinib in people with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The investigators will also be looking to see if the participant's NSCLC improves with erlotinib and why it may eventually stop responding to erlotinib.
