Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for small cell lung cancer treatment. 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.

  • Three Different Radiation Therapy Regimens in Treating Patients with Limited-Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer Receiving Cisplatin or Carboplatin and Etoposide

    This randomized phase III trial is comparing three different chest radiation therapy regimens to see how well they work in treating patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide, cisplatin, and carboplatin, 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. It is not yet known which radiation therapy regimen is more effective when given together with chemotherapy in treating patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer.

  • Olaparib, Cediranib Maleate, and Standard Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Small Cell Lung Cancer

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well olaparib, cediranib maleate, and standard chemotherapy work in treating patients with small cell lung cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, cisplatin, and etoposide, 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. Olaparib and cediranib maleate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Olaparib, cediranib maleate, and standard chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with small cell lung cancer.
    Location: 18 locations

  • A Phase 2 Study of Cediranib in Combination with Olaparib in Advanced Solid Tumors

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.
