We’re committed to our mission of finding new treatments that may help improve the lives of people with cancer. Our clinical trials for lung cancer study investigational medications alone, or in combination with other study medications or standard of care therapy. We perform these trials to see if they can help prevent, find, or treat cancer.
Lung cancer occurs when cells inside the lung grow abnormally. As more cells grow, they start to form a tumor and may spread to other areas in the body. There are two main types of lung cancer:
Non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC); about 80% to 85%
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC); about 10% to 15%
Depending on the stage of your cancer and other factors, treatment options may include surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or palliative care.
There is a lot to consider when deciding whether to participate in a clinical trial. Any clinical trial includes risks, which the study doctor will review with you. Make sure you understand the risks before participating.
About Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are scientific studies that test investigational medications to see if they’re safe and effective. Learn how a trial works and what you should consider before participating.
