Alliance A081105

This randomized phase III trial studies how well erlotinib hydrochloride compared to placebo works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been completely removed by surgery. Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Alliance A151216

This research trial studies genetic testing in screening patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been or will be removed by surgery. Studying the genes in a patient’s tumor cells may help doctors select the best treatment for patients that have certain genetic changes.

ECOG-ACRIN E4512

This randomized phase III trial studies how well crizotinib works and compares it to placebo in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been removed by surgery and has a mutation in a protein called anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Mutations, or changes, in ALK can make it very active and important for tumor cell growth and progression. Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the ALK protein from working. Crizotinib may be an effective treatment for patients with non-small cell lung cancer and an ALK fusion mutation.

ECOG-ACRIN EA5142

This randomized phase III trial studies how well nivolumab after surgery and chemotherapy work in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer. Monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and kill tumor cells remaining after surgery and standard of care chemotherapy.

ECOG-ACRIN EA5162

This phase II trial studies how well osimertinib works in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer with EGFR exon 20 insertion mutation that is stage IIIB-IV or has come back. Osimertinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

ECOG-ACRIN EA5163

This phase III trial studies whether pembrolizumab alone as a first-line treatment, followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab after disease progression is superior to induction with pembrolizumab, pemetrexed and carboplatin followed by pembrolizumab and pemetrexed maintenance in treating patients with stage IV non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether giving first-line pembrolizumab followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab works better in treating patients with non-squamous non-small cell cancer.

NRG-LU002

This randomized phase III trial studies how well erlotinib hydrochloride compared to observation works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been completely removed by surgery. Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

NRG-LU003

This National Cancer Institute (NCI) NRG ALK Master Protocol phase II trial studies how well a combination of different biomarker / ALK inhibitors work in treating patients with stage IV ALK positive non-small cell lung cancer. Lorlatinib, ceritinib, alectinib, brigatinib, ensartinib, and crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed, cisplatin, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether a combination of biomarker / ALK inhibitors or chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with ALK positive non-small cell lung cancer.

SWOG LUNGMAP

A non-small cell lung cancer screening study to test patient specimens to determine eligibility for participation in the biomarker-driven and non-matched sub-studies

SWOG S1800A – A LUNGMAP treatment sub-study

A Phase II Study of Ramucirumab Plus MK3475 (Pembrolizumab) versus Standard of Care for Patients Previously Treated with Immunotherapy for Stage IV or Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (Lung-MAP Non-Matched Sub-Study)

Wake Forest WF20817CD

This randomized clinical trial studies how well a multi-faceted training program works in improving smoking cessation in current smokers. Training lung cancer screening staff may improve their ability to help patients quit smoking.
