Lung Small Cell Carcinoma clinical trials at UC Health
3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

  • A Study of the Experimental Combination of Cediranib and Olaparib in Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies cediranib maleate in combination with olaparib in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other parts of the body (advanced/metastatic) or cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable), including breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, and pancreatic cancer. Cediranib maleate and olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cediranib maleate may also block the flow of oxygen to the tumor, and may help make the tumor more sensitive to olaparib.

  • Experimental medicine and whole brain radiation therapy to treat patients with brain metastases from non-small cell lung cancer

    “Study looking at radiation therapy and experimental medicine, VX-970 for treatment of lung cancer with metastases to brain”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of ATR kinase inhibitor M6620 (VX-970) when given together with whole brain radiation therapy in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, or neuroendocrine tumors that have spread from the original (primary) tumor to the brain. ATR kinase inhibitor M6620 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving ATR kinase inhibitor M6620 together with radiation therapy may be a better treatment for non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, or neuroendocrine tumors.

  • Cisplatin or Carboplatin, and Etoposide With or Without Sunitinib Malate in Treating Patients With Extensive-Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This partially randomized phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of sunitinib malate and to see how well it works when given together with cisplatin or carboplatin and etoposide in treating patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, carboplatin, and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Sunitinib malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether cisplatin or carboplatin and etoposide are more effective when given with or without sunitinib malate in treating small cell lung cancer.
