Prevention Clinical Trials for Small Cell Lung Cancer
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for small cell lung cancer prevention. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Tumor-Treating Fields Therapy in Preventing Brain Tumors in Patients with Extensive-Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer
This trial studies how well tumor-treating fields therapy works in preventing brain tumors in patients with small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Tumor-treating fields therapy involves the use of the NovoTTF-200A which delivers alternating electrical fields, or tumor treating fields, through ceramic discs placed on the head. This electric force may slow and / or reverse tumor growth by disrupting the way cancer cells grow.
