A Phase III Global Study to Assess the Effects of MEDI4736 Following Concurrent Chemoradiation in Patients with Stage III Unresectable Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
NCT02477826Bristol-Myers Squibb
CA209-227, 2014-003630-23
An Open-Label, Randomized Phase 3 Trial of Nivolumab, or Nivolumab Plus Ipilimumab, Versus Platinum Doublet Chemotherapy in Subjects with Chemotherapy-Naïve Stage IV or Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
 Advanced lung cancer treatment is rapidly evolving. We now know that many lung cancers are ‘driven’ by specific mutations carried by the malignant cells. These ‘driver’ mutations can be targeted by specific medications such as erlotinib and gefitinib (for EGFR mutations), and crizotinib (for ALK rearrangements) and are more effective than chemotherapy. Northwest Georgia Oncology Centers is currently conducting trials of ‘Third Generation’ EGFR and ALK inhibitors, which may offer an improved efficacy profile over the original medications.Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) without an identifiable driver mutation is now the subject of investigation with the novel PD-1/ PDL-1 inhibitor immunotherapies. Nivolumab (Opdivo(r)) was recently approved for the second line treatment of squamous cell NSCLC. We are now conducting multiple trials of PD-1/ PDL-1 inhibitors in other types of NSCLC, after radiation therapy, and combined with chemotherapy.
