  • Three Different Radiation Therapy Regimens in Treating Patients With Limited-Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer Receiving Cisplatin and Etoposide
  • RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known which radiation therapy regimen is more effective when given together with chemotherapy in treating patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is comparing two different chest radiation therapy regimens to see how well they work in treating patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer.

  • Phase 2 Study of AUY922 in NSCLC Patients With Exon 20 Insertion Mutations in EGFR
  • This research study is a Phase II clinical trial, which tests the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied. It also means that the FDA has not yet approved the drug for your type of cancer or for any use outside of research studies. It has been found that some people with NSCLC have a change (mutation) in a certain gene called the EGFR gene. This mutated gene helps cancer cells grow. The majority of NSCLC patients with EGFR mutations achieve good outcomes with erlotinib or other EGFR inhibitor therapies, with a high response rate, prolonged progression-free survival and possibly improved overall survival from therapy. However, the 4% of EGFR mutant patients that harbor an exon 20 insertion mutation historically have reaped little benefit from EGFR-directed therapy due to the low affinity of this mutation for direct EGFR inhibitors, especially erlotinib and gefitinib (see Yasuda et al, Lancet Oncol 2011). This group of patients is ideal for studying other targeted therapeutic strategies that could affect the oncogene mutation in EGFR via alternative mechanisms. AUY922 is an investigational drug that may stop cancer cells from growing abnormally. This drug has been used in other research studies. Information from those other research studies suggests that AUY922 may be effective in killing cancer cells in patients with exon 20 insertion mutations in EGFR. The purpose of this study is to test the safety of AUY922 and determine how well AUY922 works for participants with advanced NSCLC and exon 20 insertion mutations in EGFR.

  • Cabozantinib in Advanced Solid Malignancies
  • This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that the drug is still being studied and that research doctors are trying to find out more about it-such as the safest dose to use, the side effects it may cause, and if the drug is effective for treating different types of cancer. It also means that the FDA has not approved the drug for this type of cancer, or for any use outside of research studies. When cancer spreads from the primary tumor, one of the most commons sites it spreads to is bone. When cancer spreads to bone there can be significant symptoms such as pain. Cabozantinib works by blocking signaling that leads to cancer growth as well as blocking the growth of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) that help to feed a tumor. Cabozantinib has been studied or is being studied in research studies as a possible treatment for various types of cancer, including prostate cancer, brain cancer, thyroid cancer, lung cancer and kidney cancer. Previous clinical research studies indicate that cabozantinib may also have activity against cancer once it has spread to the bones. The purpose of this study is to find out if cabozantinib is effective in treating cancer that has spread to the bone.

  • A Study of LY2875358 in Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Participants
  • The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the study drug known as LY2875358, administered alone or in combination with a second drug named Erlotinib, in participants affected by a defined type of lung cancer (MET biomarker diagnostic positive Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer) that experienced a disease progression during the most recent treatment with Erlotinib.

  • Sunitinib in Never-Smokers With Lung Adenocarcinoma
  • This research study is a Phase II clinical trial, which tests the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied. It also means that the FDA has not yet approved sunitinib for your type of cancer. Sunitinib has been approved by the FDA for treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors, advanced renal cell carcinoma and advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. While most chemotherapies work by interfering with cancer cell replication, sunitinib works by blocking certain protein signals within the cell. Because sunitinib works differently from standard intravenous chemotherapies, we call it a "targeted therapy." This drug has also been used in other research studies and information from those other research studies suggests that this agent may help to slow the growth of some NSCLC tumors. In this research study, we are looking to see if sunitinib may stop certain NSCLC tumors from growing. The study focuses on a type of NSCLC, adenocarcinoma, which has previously been found to be more sensitive to other kinds of oral targeted therapies. This study will focus specifically on (1) adenocarcinoma tumors that do not carry a mutation in a known cancer gene (EGFR, KRAS, or ALK) and occur in patients that never smoked (less than 100 cigarettes in their lifetime) or (2) adenocarcinoma tumors that have a mutation in the RET gene.

  • Afatinib With CT and RT for EGFR-Mutant NSCLC
  • This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that the drug is still being studied and that study doctors are trying to find out more about it-such as the safest dose to use, the side effects it may cause, and if the drug is effective for treating different types of cancer. It also means that the FDA has not yet approved the drug for the patients type of cancer or for any use outside of research studies. Chemotherapy and radiation is the standard treatment for the patients with stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). For people with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations, adding a type of drug called a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) can help increase the response to treatment. Afatinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. It has been studied in a previous research study in participants with more advanced NSCLC. Results from that study indicate it may be helpful in treating NSCLC with EGFR mutations. In this study, patients with stage III NSCLC and EGFR mutations will receive the standard treatment of radiation and chemotherapy. If possible, the patients tumor will be removed by surgery. Afatinib will be given before radiation and chemotherapy and after surgery. The aim of giving afatinib before radiation therapy is to try to shrink the tumor. This may make the radiation therapy more effective since radiation therapy tends to work better on smaller tumors. The goal of this study is to see if adding afatinib to standard treatment helps to improve the response to treatment.

  • AUY922 for Advanced ALK-positive NSCLC
  • This research study is a Phase II clinical trial, which tests the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied and that research doctors are trying to find out more about it-such as the safest dose to use, the side effects it may cause and if the drug is effective for treating your type of cancer. It also means that the FDA has not yet approved the drug for your type of cancer or for any use outside of research studies. It has been found that some people with NSCLC have a change (mutation) in a certain gene called the ALK gene. This mutated gene helps cancer cells grow. There is a drug (crizotinib) that has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of people with NSCLC who have mutations in the ALK gene. Most people respond to crizotinib initially. Over time, however, patients may stop responding (become resistant) to crizotinib because of additional changes in the ALK gene that makes crizotinib ineffective. AUY922 is an investigational drug that may stop cancer cells from growing abnormally. This drug has been used in other research studies. Information from those other research studies suggests that AUY922 may be effective in killing cancer cells that have become resistant to drugs like crizotinib. Only participants with changes in the ALK gene will be allowed to participate in this study. The purpose of this study is to test the safety of AUY922 and determine how well AUY922 treats participants with advanced, ALK-positive NSCLC.

  • Real-Time Image Guided Lymphatic Mapping and Nodal Targeting in Lung Cancer
  • The primary purpose of this study is to determine if we can identify the first lymph node that drains from the tumor, and thus would be the most likely site for metastatic disease, and remove it for analysis to improve the ability to detect tumor in this node and to remove this additional site that potentially contains tumor cells.

  • Lung Cancer Mutation Consortium Protocol
  • The primary objective of this protocol is to determine the frequency of oncogenic mutations in 1000 patients with advanced adenocarcinoma of the lung. The linked clinical and mutational analyses will be used to determine the frequency of each mutation, its association with clinical features and outcome, and its association with other mutations. As future therapeutic protocols specific for these mutations are developed, patients may be notified of their eligibility for these studies. Future translational studies may be used to: a) unravel the complex biology of lung cancer; b) identify prognostic markers; c) define predictive markers of response/resistance to new therapies; d) identify new targets. A secondary goal is to establish a consortium of sites that have the capability of conducting multiple mutation testing in a CLIA-certified lab.

  • AZD9291 First Time In Patients Ascending Dose Study
  • This study will treat patients with advanced NSCLC who have already received at least one course of specific anti-cancer treatment but the tumour has started to re-grow following that treatment. This is the first time this drug has ever been tested in patients, and so it will help to understand what type of side effects may occur with the drug treatment, it will measure the levels of drug in the body, it will also measure the anti-cancer activity. By using these pieces of information together the best dose of this drug to use in further clinical trials will be selected.
