Experimental Treatment

This trial requires 18 total participants across 1 different treatment group

This trial involves a single treatment. Brigatinib is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are in Phase 1 and are in the first stage of evaluation with people.

Treatment (brigatinib, binimetinib)Patients receive brigatinib PO QD and binimetinib PO BID on days 1-28. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Mark “yes” if the following statements are true for you:
, with no prior chemotherapy for advanced disease, and no evidence of brain metastases People with stage IIIB/IV NSCLC that have not had chemotherapy before and no brain metastases are eligible to participate. show original
) A test to look for a certain type of gene mutation, called an ALK-rearrangement (or ROS1- rearrangement), is done on a tumor sample or on cell-free DNA in a CLIA-approved laboratory show original
The text states that someone who has had a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) to treat a cancer such as ALK or ROS1 should consider trying a different TKI if their cancer progresses or they can't tolerate their current treatment. show original

Please continue reading only if you have previously taken an ALK or ROS1 targeted TKI and experienced progression or intolerance on your most recent treatment. show original

Patient Q&A Section

What are common treatments for carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

"Chemotherapy is one of the oldest and most effective treatments of the above cancers. The chemotherapy agents used depend on the specifics of the malignancy, but alkylating agents are often an option. Surgical resection is frequently recommended. Radiation therapy is used commonly in curative situations and is used also to boost the efficacy of other treatments, like chemotherapy or surgery. The use of hormone therapy in treatment of all the above cancers is highly debatable." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How many people get carcinoma, non-small-cell lung a year in the United States?

"About 12,500 individuals are diagnosed with lung cancer a year in the United States. More than 90% of lung cancers are due to tobacco exposure." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What causes carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

"Mutations during lung development can lead to the development of [lung cancer]( later in life. Furthermore, cancer may develop by a gradual, slow accumulation of tiny changes in the DNA sequences associated with cancer development and progression. This accumulation of mutations is possibly due to a large number of 'driver' mutations, which are responsible for triggering cancer formation." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What are the signs of carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

"The most common presentations of lung cancer are coughing up blood. Other possible presentations include: a persistent fast-spreading rash; hoarseness; a persistent cough with blood or sputum; weight loss; a persistent cough with purulent sputum; and a persistent cough with a change in color of the sputum after coughing. The symptoms of lung carcinoma can be found in an orderly and predictable presentation. Therefore, it is important to have high suspicion for lung cancer when patients present with cough or hoarseness." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Can carcinoma, non-small-cell lung be cured?

"A substantial number of patients with lung carcinoma had a favorable outcome under optimal treatment. Survival after lung carcinoma resection was significantly higher than observed in current retrospective studies. This raises the question of whether, in addition to chemotherapy, adjuvant treatment is necessary to improve survival in early-stage lung carcinoma." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

"Carcinoma, non-small-Cell Lung is a very aggressive tumor. It is a disease that requires a high degree of diagnosis and treatment. The initial histology is significant in determining what methods of therapy will work best. The current clinical trials that use targeted treatments or agents (e.g. Immuno-oncology) will also determine the best approach. Clinical trials have not progressed to the point where a cure exists for this disease. Patients diagnosed with this type of cancer will need to be closely monitored to determine the best options for this disease.

What is brigatinib?

"Brigatinib treatment decreases the tumor size of pre-clinical hepatocellular carcinoma models. Moreover, brigatinib treatment is associated with regression of pre-existing advanced pre-clinical lung fibrosis. Findings from a recent study demonstrate that brigatinib may be an effective treatment for patients with HCC and advanced lung fibrosis. file\n\n1.

Unverified Answer

Does brigatinib improve quality of life for those with carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

"The majority of patients (80.0%) and caregivers were satisfied with brigatinib in terms of HRQOL, and no clinically significant changes in QOL were identified between the placebo and brigatinib groups." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Does carcinoma, non-small-cell lung run in families?

"The present study has not replicated a previous report of a high prevalence of lung cancer among NSCLC in families. This may be due to several reasons. First, the earlier study may have been underpowered to detect small mutations of the tumor suppressor gene. Second, if this mutation had been detected, it did not affect carrier status. Third, a different mechanism of lung carcinogenesis may exist in this region." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is the average age someone gets carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

"The age at diagnosis may reflect a delay in treatment if these are diagnosed late stage. It may additionally reflect an effect of smoking which is a risk factor for [lung cancer]( Future studies should address the question of whether screening, awareness, intervention and treatment with adjuvant treatment are indicated for all patients at diagnosis but especially in middle-aged patients where cancer remains a major cause of death." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

"While there are not many published studies on trials for NSCLC in people on systemic chemotherapy, a recent review of 5 randomized trials found that there was significant benefit to some therapies for chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting, which is often a very serious issue for these patients. These trials also found significant benefit in pain and fatigue. The authors concluded, 'We are encouraged by the significant improvements in clinical outcomes that have been noted on meta.analysis and by the large number of patients enrolled across randomized trials." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Have there been any new discoveries for treating carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

"It is clear that the current therapeutic advances in treating non-small-cell lung cancer are still incomplete. In order to better understand the clinical treatment of NSCLC, it is necessary to develop more effective drugs to be selected." - Anonymous Online Contributor
