Irinotecan/Cisplatin With or Without Simvastatin in Chemo-naive Patients With Extensive Disease-small Cell Lung Cancer

Statins (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors) have been used to treat hypercholesterolemia. Besides the lipid lowering effects, they also act as anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer agents. Recently the investigators demonstrated a synergistic cytotoxicity between Simvastatin and Irinotecan in human lung cancer cells. Simvastatin enhances Irinotecan-induced apoptosis by inhibition of proteasome activity. ...


An Open Label Registry Study of Lutetium-177 (DOTA0 TYR3) Octreotate (Lu-DOTA-TATE) Treatment in Patients With Somatostatin Receptor Positive Tumours

Neuroendocrine (NET) tumours have secretory and metabolic pathways not typically found in other cancers that can be utilized for molecular imaging and therapeutic targeting. The most important is somatostatin. Somatostatin receptors are useful tools in the diagnosis and treatment of NET tumours because the somatostatin analogue octreotate can be radiolabeled ...


Safety and Tolerability of Everolimus as Second-line Treatment in Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinoma / Neuroendocrine Carcinoma G3 (WHO 2010) and Neuroendocrine Tumor G3 - an Investigator Initiated Phase II Study

As more efficient drugs are urgently needed for the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors the investigator evaluated phosphorylated Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and effectors in a series of NEC G3 at the Charit Center. Everolimus showed antiproliferative effects in bronchial NET. In a second approach the data of this study ...


CAPTEM or FOLFIRI as SEcond-line Therapy in NEuroendocrine CArcinomas

This is a multicenter randomized phase II non comparative study. Patients with metastatic NEC G3, will be enrolled in the study and will be randomly assigned to receive FOLFIRI or CAPTEM as second line treatment The primary objective is to assess DCR and the safety as co-primary objective. The secondary ...


Cisplatin Carboplatin and Etoposide or Temozolomide and Capecitabine in Treating Patients With Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Gastrointestinal Tract or Pancreas That Is Metastatic or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the progression free survival (PFS) of platinum (cisplatin or carboplatin) and etoposide versus the PFS of temozolomide and capecitabine in patients with advanced G3 non-small cell gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine carcinomas. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the response rate (RR) of platinum (cisplatin or carboplatin) and etoposide ...


Whole Brain Radiation Therapy Alone vs. Radiosurgery for SCLC Patients With 1-10 Brain Metastases

Scientific Background: Patients suffering from BM from SCLC have a poor prognosis with a median survival ranging between 2-14 months. Treatment options for BM in SCLC are usually limited to WBRT, steroids or palliative chemotherapy. SCLC patients demonstrate an exception in the treatment of BM, because treatment options for a ...


Two Different Dosages of Irinotecan Combined With Cisplatin Scheme in Extensive Disease-Small Cell Lung Cancer

As the gene polymorphism of uridine diphosphate glucuronosyl transferase 1A1(UGT1A1)is related to the side effect of diarrhea induced by irinotecan. UGT1A1 gene *28 (6/6 and 6/7) and *6 (G/G and G/A) is related to low probability of diarrhea and UGT1A1 gene *28 (7/7) and *6 (A/A)is related to high probability ...


SBRT Compared With IMRT Concurrently With Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With LS-SCLC

As stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT) has been widely used in clinical practice at present, the aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of stereotactic body radiation therapy compared with intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) concurrently with EP regimen(cisplatin plus etoposide) in treating patients with limited-stage small cell ...


Study of Everolimus as Maintenance Therapy for Metastatic NEC With Pulmonary or Gastroenteropancreatic Origin

A platinum based chemotherapy (Cisplatin or Carboplatin) plus Etoposide is the standard of care in NEC originating from the gastro-intestinal tract and lung, based on retrospective studies. In these clinical studies and in clinical practice the median number of cycle administered is six due to dose depending toxicity of platinum ...


Adjuvant Therapy of Completely Resected Merkel Cell Carcinoma With Immune Checkpoint Blocking Antibodies Versus Observation

This is a national, open-label, randomized, multicenter phase II study to assess the efficacy of adjuvant therapy with immune checkpoint blocking antibodies in completely resected Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) patients. MCC is a rare (incidence of 0.44 per 100,000), highly aggressive form of skin cancer. Indeed, MCC has a dramatically ...
