Eligibility Criteria

This trial is for patients born any sex aged 18 and older. You must have received 1 prior treatment for Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma (NSCLC) or one of the other 4 conditions listed above. There are 7 eligibility criteria to participate in this trial as listed below.

Mark “yes” if the following statements are true for you:
Histologically or cytologically documented locally advanced or recurrent NSCLC that is not eligible for curative surgery and/or definitive radiotherapy, with or without chemotherapy, or metastatic non-squamous or squamous NSCLC.
No prior systemic therapy for locally advanced or metastatic squamous or non-squamous NSCLC, including but not limited to chemotherapy or targeted therapy. Patients who have received prior neoadjuvant, adjuvant chemotherapy, or chemoradiotherapy with curative intent for nonmetastatic disease must have experienced a disease-free interval of ≥ 6 months from the last dose of chemotherapy and/or concurrent radiotherapy prior to randomization.
Archival tumor tissue or fresh biopsy (if archival tissue is not available) for the determination of PD-L1 levels and retrospective analyses of other biomarkers. Only patients who have evaluable PD-L1 results are eligible.
At least one measurable lesion by the investigator per RECIST v1.1.
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status ≤ 1.

Patient Q&A Section

What is the primary cause of lung cancer?

"The development of [lung cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/lung-cancer) has a complex etiology involving interactions between genetic predisposition, environmental factors, and immunological factors. Genetic predisposition plays an important role in the development of lung cancer, and the relative importance of genetic factors varies according to ethnicity and smoking habits. The environment may influence the behavior of cigarette smokers, but the exact pathway leading to lung cancer is complicated. Immunological factors include exposure to infectious agents, such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites, and to certain chemicals. Complicating factors involve cancer therapy, radiation therapy, occupational exposures, and other environmental exposures. In addition to these main causes, people can develop lung cancer under circumstances that do not fit into the above categories. For example, nutritional deficiency can induce lung cancer." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the latest developments in tislelizumab for therapeutic use?

"The updated data support the use of anti-PD-1 antibody tislelizumab as a therapeutic agent for patients with advanced NSCLC. The available clinical data on this drug are encouraging and warrant further evaluation of its efficacy and safety in patients with NSCLC." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are common treatments for lung cancer?

"Lung cancer is an aggressive disease that is difficult to manage because of its rapid growth and metastases at distant sites. Chemotherapy is effective for early-stage tumors and for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but the optimal chemotherapy regimen is not yet clear. Radiotherapy is also important for the control of localized disease in NSCLC; however, the optimum radiation dose is still under investigation. Surgery is often indicated for certain indications, such as tumor invasion into major blood vessels or surrounding structures, or locally recurrent tumors. In some cases surgical resection with or without adjuvant chemotherapy may be curative. A targeted approach to therapies is in development for patients who have specific mutations of their cancer cells." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is the latest research for lung cancer?

"Larger randomized trials are needed to confirm the role of EGFR mutation testing, especially its value in selecting patients for targeted therapies; to study the effectiveness of different treatment strategies in elderly patients with SCLC; to evaluate novel biomarkers designed to identify the subgroup of surgically resectable NSCLC patients who might benefit from neoadjuvant chemotherapy before surgery; and to investigate other novel treatments currently under investigation." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Does tislelizumab improve quality of life for those with lung cancer?

"Tislelizumab seems to have a significant effect on QoL in patients with NSCLC. However, long-term follow-up data are needed to evaluate its potential effects on QoL over time." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the common side effects of tislelizumab?

"No dose-limiting toxicities occurred during treatment with tislelizumab, suggesting that doses of up to 30 mg/kg may be used safely. The most common adverse reactions included headache, nausea, fatigue, asthenia, rashes, infusion site reactions, leukopenia and elevated transaminases. Allergic reactions were infrequent." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How many people get lung cancer a year in the United States?

"Lung cancer incidence rates were higher than expected in this population-based study. The mean annual incidence rate of lung cancer was 2.6 per 100,000 population; however, the incidence rate varied considerably by race and sex. A high proportion of cases occurred among men in their 60s and 80s. In addition, our findings suggest that age-adjusted lung cancer mortality has declined over time." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Is tislelizumab typically used in combination with any other treatments?

"This survey showed that Tislelizumab was most commonly given as a monotherapy or in combination with chemotherapy and targeted therapy drugs. This data suggests that Tislelizumab has been used throughout its history for treatment of certain malignancies. The processes of drug development should be explored further so that clinicians can use this information to decide whether Tislelizumab is an appropriate drug for their patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving tislelizumab?

"Results from a recent paper demonstrated that this agent had no effect on OS when compared to placebo and was not superior to placebo on PFS. Tislelizumab did not demonstrate clear efficacy in lung cancer." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Have there been any new discoveries for treating lung cancer?

"The incidence of [lung cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/lung-cancer) is increasing dramatically worldwide. Tumor biology is changing, as our knowledge of the mechanisms behind the growth of tumors increases. Lung cancer continues to have a dismal prognosis, with a five year survival rate of less than 15%. There are many reasons why advances in treatment have been slow. First, screening programs are not widespread; second, diagnosis is often delayed until the disease has reached an advanced stage; third, there are many differences between cancer subtypes; and fourth, there are no improvements in the quality of life of patients after definitive treatment of the disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is the survival rate for lung cancer?

"Survival rates for lung cancer varies greatly depending on patient age and race/ethnicity. Patients aged 65+ years, regardless of race/ethnicity, had similar 5-year survival rates when compared to patients younger than 65. Younger black men had lower 5-year survival rates than older white men or blacks; however, mortality rates were comparable among all age groups. Results from a recent clinical trial suggest that while lung cancer incidence may be increasing in the general population, these disparities persist." - Anonymous Online Contributor
