Treatment 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 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.

  • Whole-Brain Radiation Therapy with or without Hippocampal Avoidance in Treating Patients with Limited Stage or Extensive Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer

    This randomized phase II / III trial studies how well whole-brain radiation therapy works and compares it with or without hippocampal avoidance in treating patients with small cell lung cancer that is found in one lung, the tissues between the lungs, and nearby lymph nodes only (limited stage) or has spread outside of the lung in which it began or to other parts of the body (extensive stage). Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. The hippocampus is part of the brain that is important for memory. Avoiding the hippocampus during whole-brain radiation could decrease the chance of side effects on memory and thinking. It is not yet known whether giving whole-brain radiation therapy is more effective with or without hippocampal avoidance in treating patients with small cell lung cancer.

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

    This phase II trial studies cediranib maleate in combination with olaparib in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other parts of the body or cannot be removed by surgery, including breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, and pancreatic cancer. 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.

    This phase I / II trial studies the best dose and side effects of navitoclax and how well it works when given together with vistusertib in treating patients with small cell lung cancer and solid tumors that have come back. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as navitoclax, 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. Vistusertib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving navitoclax and vistusertib may work better in treating patients with small cell lung cancer and solid tumors.
