Lung Non-Squamous Non-Small Cell Carcinoma clinical trials at UC Health
2 research studies open to new patients

  • A Study of Experimental Combination Treatment With Osimertinib and Navitoclax For EGFR-Positive Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase Ib trial studies the side effects and best dose of osimertinib and navitoclax when given together and to see how well they work in treating patients with previously treated epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-positive non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body or has not responded to previous treatment with initial EGFR kinase inhibitor. Osimertinib and navitoclax may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving with osimertinib together with navitoclax may work better in treating EGFR-positive non-small cell lung cancer.

  • Firstline Pembrolizumab Alone or in Combination With Pemetrexed and Carboplatin in Induction/Maintenance or Postprogression in Treating Patients With Stage IV Non-squamous Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase III trial studies whether pembrolizumab alone as a first-line treatment, followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab after disease progression is superior to induction with pembrolizumab, pemetrexed and carboplatin followed by pembrolizumab and pemetrexed maintenance in treating patients with stage IV non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether giving first-line pembrolizumab followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab works better in treating patients with non-squamous non-small cell cancer.
