An interim analysis of a Phase III study of Avastin ( Bevacizumab ) in combination with Paclitaxel and Carboplatin in advanced, non-small cell lung cancer ( NSCLC ) met its primary efficacy endpoint ...


ProMune is a synthetic agonist for Toll-like receptor 9 ( TLR9 ). By stimulating TLR9, ProMune acts directly and selectively on plasmacytoid dendritic cells and B cells to reverse immune tolerance to ...


Erlotinib ( Tarceva ) is the first drug and the only EGFR-targeted treatment shown to prolong survival in a phase III trial ( PA3 ) when added to standard of care ( Gemcitabine ) for the treatment of ...


A randomized study of Erlotinib ( Tarceva ) plus Gemcitabine met its primary endpoint by demonstrating a statistically significant 23.5 percent improvement in overall survival ( or a hazard ratio of 0 ...


Data from a study ( E4599 ) of Bevacizumab ( Avastin ) plus Paclitaxel and Carboplatin in first-line non-squamous, non-small cell lung cancer ( NSCLC ) showed the study met its primary efficacy endpoi ...


An experimental compound, ABT-737, that blocks the action of a class of proteins known as the Bcl-2 family, may prove to be a valuable tool in the fight against cancer. The Bcl-2 family of protein ...

A phase II study is assessing the safety and efficacy of Sunitinib ( Sutent ) in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer ( NSCLC ) that had progressed following standard therapy. “ This ...


Researchers at the Ireland Cancer Center of University Hospitals of Cleveland have found a promising, novel biomarker that may be used to predict the survival of patients with advanced lung cancer and ...


Researchers evaluate the effectiveness of a new antitumoral therapy by looking at how tumors respond to it. But in the case of advanced non-small cell lung cancer ( NSCLC ), there may be a better way ...


The drug Motexafin Gadolinium ( Xcytrin ), based on a molecule developed by chemists at The University of Texas at Austin, showed significant promise in prolonging cognitive function in patients with ...
