Summary

This study is for participants that have been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer, that has spread to the brain. The purpose of this study is to see if high dose radiation therapy delivered only to the small areas of brain cancer and avoiding the surrounding normal brain tissue, called stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), decrease side effects related to memory and thinking compared to radiation to the entire brain, called, whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) that avoids the hippocampus but treats all of the brain tissue along with a drug that helps preserve memory and thinking called memantine. Participants can expect to be on this study for up to 6 months, depending on what treatment they receive (SRS alone or HA-WBRT with memantine). Participants will then be followed every 2 to 3 months for at least 1 year after study completion and then every 6 months for their lifetime or until disease progression.

Determination and Validation of Lung EpiCheck a Multianalyte Assay for Lung Cancer Prediction. A Case-Control Study.

List of Studies


Keywords
Cancer, Cancer/Lung, Lung
Summary

This study aims to create a test that will detect changes in the genes found in the patient's blood very soon after he/she develops lung cancer. Detecting lung cancer at an early stage can significantly reduce the chance that the patient will die from lung cancer. This test is expected to perform better than any other tests that are currently available.

A Phase II Study of Sotorasib (AMG 510) in Participants With Previously Treated Stage IV or Recurrent KRAS G12C Mutated Non-Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (ECOG-ACRIN LUNG-MAP SUB-STUDY)

Keywords
Cancer, Cancer/Lung, Lung
Summary

This study is for patients who have been diagnosed and previously treated stage IV or recurrent KRAS G12C mutated non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. The purpose of this study is to see if we lower the chance of the growth or spread of KRASG12C-mutated advanced non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer by using the study drug AMG 510. Participants can expect to be on this study until disease progression, the side effects become too severe, or the participant decides to discontinue the study.

Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer. The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment alone to using pembrolizumab plus the usual treatment. The investigational drug in this study is pembrolizumab. This drug, pembrolizumab is already approved by the FDA for use in patients with more advanced lung cancer. Participants can expect to be on treatment for up to a year. Participants will be followed for up to 10 years after completion of treatment.

Randomized Phase III Study of Combination Osimertinib (AZD9291) and Bevacizumab Versus Osimertinib (AZD9291) Alone as First-Line Treatment for Patients with Metastatic EGFR-Mutant Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

Keywords

Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Metastatic EGFR-Mutant Lung Cancer. The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment of AZD9291 (osimertinib) alone to using bevacizumab plus AZD9291 (osimertinib). The drug, AZD9291 (osimertinib), is already approved by the FDA for use by itself to treat lung cancer. The drug, bevacizumab, is also already approved by the FDA when given with chemotherapy for treatment of advanced lung cancer. The addition of bevacizumab to other EGFR-targeting drugs has shown promise by delaying the time until progression on treatment for patients with EGFR-mutant lung cancers. Participants can expect to be on this study until their cancer returns or spreads, or the participant experiences unacceptable side effects, or until they decide to come off study. Participants will then be followed for 10 years after the date they enrolled to the study.

A Phase 1b Study of ASP1951, a GITR Agonistic Antibody, as a Single Agent and in Combination with Pembrolizumab in Subjects with Advanced Solid Tumors

Keywords

Summary

This study is for patients that have a tumor that cannot be removed through surgery (unresectable) or may have spread (metastasized) to other parts of their body. In this study, ASP1951 will be given alone (monotherapy) or combined with pembrolizumab (combination therapy). Both ASP1951 and pembrolizumab will be considered study drug. Pembrolizumab has been approved by FDA for use in patients with skin, lung, cervical cancer, certain cancers of head and neck and other cancers but may not be approved to treat all types of cancer. However, the use of ASP1951 plus pembrolizumab has not been approved by regulatory authorities and is therefore investigational. The study consists of 3 periods: screening (up to 28 days), treatment (up to 48 weeks [16 cycles]) and follow up (up to 45 weeks), followed by an optional re-treatment period for participants that qualify. The re-treatment period will allow participants to receive study drug treatment again for up to 16 additional cycles (approximately 48 weeks), for a maximum total treatment and re-treatment period of 32 cycles (approximately 96 weeks). Both study drugs are administered intravenously (into the vein).This is the first time the investigational study drug ASP1951 is being tested in humans; however, studies in animals showed that the study drug is safe to be tested in humans.

Summary

The purpose of this research is to evaluate if including the investigational Nodify XL2 test results in the decision-making process when planning the management of lung nodules will reduce the number of unnecessary surgical and biopsy procedures. The general study procedures include obtaining blood samples for Nodify XL2 tests, collecting relevant medical information (including test results ordered by your doctor in the management of your lung nodule), and documenting your doctor's recommendations for the treatment of your lung nodule. Participation in this research study may last up to 18 months.

A comparison of cell populations collected in sputum samples to cell populations in bronchoalveolar lavage samples

Date Added

Researcher
Gerard Silvestri

List of Studies


Keywords
Cancer/Lung, Lung, Pulmonary
Summary

The main objective of this study is to analyze sputum collected from the residue remaining from bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) procedures to compare the cellular characteristics of BAL samples to those of sputum samples collected from the acapella® airway assist device. We intend to enroll volunteers who are being evaluated by an MUSC pulmonologist as part of their standard medical care. The Control Sputum sample will be collected by volunteers at home over a three day period using an acapella® airway assist device. The cellular profiles of the BAL and sputum samples will be analyzed by flow cytometry. Active participation in this study is expected to last less than one month and will be complete once a sample is obtained from the BAL procedure.
