Study Summary

This trial is testing a new drug to treat small cell lung cancer to see if it is safe and effective.

Who is the study for?
Adults over 18 with small cell lung cancer that's come back or didn't respond after chemo can join. They must have stable brain metastases, good organ function, and an ECOG status of 0-2. No recent immunosuppressants, untreated brain issues, severe immune reactions to cancer drugs, active infections or major surgery within the last month.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing Tarlatamab's safety and how the body processes it in adults with SCLC. It includes strategies to manage side effects (CRS Mitigation) and compares Tarlatamab with Pembrolizumab—a known treatment.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Possible side effects include immune system reactions like inflammation in various organs, infusion-related symptoms such as fever or chills, fatigue, potential worsening of existing conditions like pneumonitis or autoimmune diseases.
