Maintenance Systemic Therapy Versus Consolidative Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) Plus Maintenance Systemic Therapy for Limited Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC): A Randomized Phase II/III Trial
This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well giving maintenance chemotherapy with or without stereotactic body radiation therapy works in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. Drugs used in maintenance chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, pemetrexed disodium, and gemcitabine 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. Stereotactic body radiation therapy is a specialized radiation therapy that sends x-rays directly to the tumor using smaller doses over several days and may cause less damage to normal tissue. Giving maintenance chemotherapy and stereotactic body radiation therapy together may work better than maintenance chemotherapy alone in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer.
Phase I Study of Accelerated Hypofractionated Radiation Therapy With Concomitant Chemotherapy for Unresectable Stage III Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
The purpose of this study is to test the safety of radiation therapy given at increased doses in a shorter period of time in order to find out what effects, good and/or bad, it has on the patient and the lung cancer. The standard way of giving the radiation therapy is to give it once daily for 6 to 7 weeks. The study is currently testing if a higher amount of radiation therapy per treatment can be given as well as shorten the total number of treatments to 4 or 5 weeks. The goal is that a higher dose of radiation therapy per treatment will be more effective than current standard treatments. In addition to the radiation treatment, patients will receive chemotherapy with carboplatin and paclitaxel, which are standard drugs for treating lung cancer.
Randomized Phase II Study Comparing Prophylactic Cranial Irradiation Alone to Prophylactic Cranial Irradiation and Consolidative Extra-Cranial Irradiation for Extensive Disease Small Cell Lung Cancer (ED-SCLC)
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. This may be an effective treatment for extensive stage small cell lung cancer.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is comparing how well radiation therapy to the brain works when given with or without radiation therapy to other areas of the body in treating patients with extensive stage small cell lung cancer.
