Clinical Trials Using Crizotinib

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Crizotinib. 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.

Trials 1-12 of 12
  • Crizotinib in Treating Patients with Stage IB-IIIA Non-small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Been Removed by Surgery and ALK Fusion Mutations (An ALCHEMIST Treatment Trial)

    This phase III ALCHEMIST trial studies how well crizotinib works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been removed by surgery and has a mutation in a protein called anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Mutations, or changes, in ALK can make it very active and important for tumor cell growth and progression. Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the ALK protein from working. Crizotinib may be an effective treatment for patients with non-small cell lung cancer and an ALK fusion mutation.

  • Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Patients with Advanced Refractory Solid Tumors, Lymphomas, or Multiple Myeloma (The MATCH Screening Trial)

    This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

  • Targeted Treatment for ALK Positive Patients Who Have Previously Been Treated for Non-squamous Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

    This National Cancer Institute (NCI)-NRG ALK Protocol phase II trial studies how well a combination of different biomarker / ALK inhibitors work in treating patients with stage IV ALK positive non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. Lorlatinib, ceritinib, alectinib, brigatinib, ensartinib, and crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed, 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 whether a combination of biomarker / ALK inhibitors or chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with ALK positive non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer.

  • Iobenguane I-131 or Crizotinib and Standard Therapy in Treating Younger Patients with Newly-Diagnosed High-Risk Neuroblastoma or Ganglioneuroblastoma

    This phase III trial studies iobenguane I-131 or crizotinib and standard therapy in treating younger patients with newly-diagnosed high-risk neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma. Radioactive drugs, such as iobenguane I-131, may carry radiation directly to tumor cells and not harm normal cells. Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving iobenguane I-131 or crizotinib and standard therapy may work better compared to crizotinib and standard therapy alone in treating younger patients with neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma.

  • Crizotinib before Surgery in Treating Patients with ALK, ROS1, or MET Mutation Positive Stage IA-IIIA Non-small Cell Lung Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery

    This phase II trial studies how well giving crizotinib before surgery works in treating patients with ALK, ROS1, or MET mutation positive stage IA-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that can be removed by surgery (resectable). Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving crizotinib before surgery may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of normal tissue that needs to be removed.

  • Lorlatinib with Crizotinib or Binimetinib for the Treatment of Refractory Stage IV Non-small Cell Lung Cancer with ALK or ROS1 Gene Rearrangement

    This phase Ib / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of lorlatinib and how well it works with crizotinib or binimetinib in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer that has not responded to treatment (refractory) with ALK or ROS1 gene rearrangement. Lorlatinib is an oral ALK and ROS1 inhibitor that may help stop the growth and spread of ALK-positive and ROS1-positive lung cancer cells. Binimetinib is an oral inhibitor of MEK, a signaling protein that may cause some types of lung cancer to grow. Combining binimetinib with drugs targeting these growth signals has been shown to prevent lung cancer cells from growing. Crizotinib is an oral inhibitor of a number of proteins, including MET, a signaling protein that may cause some types of cancer to grow. Adding crizotinib to lorlatinib may be able to control the growth of lung cancer cells that have also become dependent on growth signals from MET. Giving lorlatinib with crizotinib or binimetinib may work better in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer.

  • Crizotinib for the Treatment of Neurofibromatosis Type 2 and Progressive Vestibular Schwannoma

    This phase II trial investigates how well crizotinib works in treating patients with neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) and have growing NF2-related tumors (abnormal growths of body tissue) called vestibular schwannomas that are growing, spreading, or getting worse (progressive). Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving crizotinib may shrink tumors commonly found in patients with NF2 or stop them from growing.

  • Brentuximab Vedotin or Crizotinib and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Stage II-IV Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma

    This partially randomized phase II trial studies how well brentuximab vedotin or crizotinib and combination chemotherapy works in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage II-IV anaplastic large cell lymphoma. Brentuximab vedotin is a monoclonal antibody, called brentuximab, linked to a toxic agent called vedotin. Brentuximab attaches to CD30 positive cancer cells in targeted way and delivers vedotin to kill them. Crizotinib and methotrexate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether brentuximab vedotin and combination chemotherapy is more effective than crizotinib and combination chemotherapy in treating anaplastic large cell lymphoma.
