Apatinib for Extensive Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer After Second/Third Line Chemotherapy.

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a highly aggressive disease characterized by its rapid doubling time, high growth fraction, early development of disseminated disease, and dramatic response to first-line chemotherapy and radiation. Small cell lung cancer accounts for approximately 20%-25% lung cancer patients. SCLC patients are categorized as limited disease, ...


Cardiovascular Morbidities and Lung Cancer Treatment: a Prospective Registry

Therapeutic algorithms for lung cancer are mainly based on randomised controlled trials which excluded patients with severe co-morbidities. Smoking, the main risk factor for lung cancer, is associated with cardiovascular events that may impact on the therapeutic decision. The aim of this registry is to determine if and how cardiovascular ...

Physiotherapy Prehabilitation in Patients Undergoing Cardiac or Thoracic Surgery

Preoperative rehabilitation or "Prehabilitation" can be defined as "the process of enhancing the functional capacity of the individual to enable him or her to withstand a stressful event". Prehabilitation is a relatively new concept with emerging evidence demonstrating a reduction in length of hospital stay and disability, improved functional capacity ...

Circulating Tumor Cells Spillage After Pulmonary Biopsy

Introduction Lung cancer (NSCLC) is a common malignancy with a high recurrence rate even when diagnosed at early stages. Biopsy is currently the procedure of choice for the investigation of pulmonary lesions, yet it is unclear whether the biopsy itself releases tumor cells into the circulation and attributes to the ...

Phase N/A

Priming Immunotherapy in Advanced Disease With Radiation

Subjects with front-line or relapsed NSCLC or relapsed HNSCC who are intended to receive standard of care immune checkpoint inhibitors without a contraindication to Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) to a single cancer deposit greater than 1 cm (metastasis or primary cancer) will be enrolled. Subjects will receive standard of ...


Anonymous Testing of Pathology Specimens for BRCA Mutations in Ashkenazi Jewish Individuals Who Have Cancer

Germline mutations in the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 have been demonstrated in the majority of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer families. The increased risk to develop both breast and ovarian cancer associated with inheriting a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation has been well established. It has also been suggested that is ...

Phase N/A

Neoadjuvant Immunoradiation for Resectable Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

This is a pilot study of neoadjuvant 'immunoradiation' (durvalumab or durvalumab plus tremelimumab) administered every 4 weeks for 2 doses, concurrently with standard thoracic radiation (RT) (45Gy in 25 fractions), with one dose of immunotherapy alone delivered in the pre-surgical window, prior to surgical resection, for patients with stage IIIA ...


Frequency of EGFR and KRAS Mutations and Clinical-prognostic Correlation in Brazilian Lung Cancer Patients at Erasto Gaertner Hospital

Assessment of the types and frequency of EGFR and KRAS mutations in NSCLC, as well clinical-prognostic correlations has been extensively studied in many populations. Few Brazilian studies evaluating mutational status in NSCLC has been done so far, none of then explored the regional background nor have considered the quantitative analysis ...

Phase N/A

Atovaquone as Tumour HypOxia Modifier

Solid tumours often have highly disorganised vasculature that results in low oxygenation. This combined with high metabolic rates leads to oxygen demand outstripping supply causing tumour hypoxia. Hypoxia drives multiple cellular processes involved in the hallmarks of cancer. Tumour hypoxia also decreases the effectiveness of anticancer treatments. This is especially ...

Phase N/A

Detection of Genetic Markers of Lung Cancer

The multistage theory of carcinogenesis includes the development of multiple activating genetic changes due to exposure to carcinogens, either primarily, or superimposed upon pre-existing mutations in the genome. These changes result in activation of protooncogenes, lack of expression of tumor suppressor genes, or combinations of the above, the sum of ...
