The Possible Role of ERCC1 in Determining Patterns of Recurrence after Chemoradiation for Lung Cancer

This study intends to characterize ERCC1 overexpression in predicting local recurrence of non-metastatic lung cancer and pancreas cancer treated with radiation therapy (RT) with or without chemotherapy. It is hypothesized that higher ERCC1 levels would allow for improved repair capacity and higher chance of local recurrence after radiation therapy


ECOG E2511 Phase I and Randomized Phase II Double Blind Clinical Trial of Cisplatin and Etoposide in Combination with Veliparib(ABT-888) or Placebo as Frontline Therapy for Extensive Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer

This is a 2-part study consisting of a lead-in phase I dose escalation trial to establish the safety and
determine the optimal dose of veliparib (ABT-888) that will be safely combined with standard doses
of cisplatin and etoposide (CE). This will be followed by a randomized double blind phase II clinical
study to compare CE plus placebo against CE plus veliparib in patients with previously untreated
2.1 Phase I Primary Endpoints
To determine the recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of veliparib to use in combination with
2.2 Phase II Primary Endpoints
To determine whether the addition of ABT-888 to cisplatin etoposide (CE) results in
improved progression free survival (PFS) over CE with placebo in the frontline therapy of
newly diagnosed extensive stage small cell lung cancer
2.3 Phase II Secondary Endpoints
2.3.1 To determine the overall survival (OS) associated with the combination of CE plus
2.3.2 To assess the overall response rate (ORR) as well as complete response rate
(CRR) associated with the combination of CE plus ABT-888
2.3.3 To determine the toxicity profile of the combination of ABT-888 and CE
chemotherapy in this patient population.
2.3.4 To conduct exploratory correlative analysis of the impact of select biomarkers.
2.3.5 To compare the overall toxicity profile and specifically the incidence and severity of
chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy with the addition of ABT-888 to CE


JNJ-42756493: A Phase 1 Study to Evaluate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of JNJ-42756493, a pan-Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor (FGFR) Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor, in Subjects With Advanced or Refractory Solid Tumors or Lymphoma

1) To determine a safe and biologically active Phase 2 dose (recommended Phase 2 dose [RP2D]) for JNJ-42756493 (Part 1 Dose Escalation)
2) To evaluate the feasibility of treating a molecularly-defined subset of subjects with squamous celllung cancer and subjects with breast cancer with JNJ-42756493 at the RP2D (Part 2 Dose Expansion)


Asymmetric Cell Division and Notch Signaling in Lung Cancer Stem Cells

To determine if Notch signaling, chemokine signaling and epithelial-mesenchymal transition, or interactions between these pathways, regulate self-renewal of lung cancer stem cells.
