The Oncology Institute is dedicated to providing comprehensive medical services to patients. In The Oncology Institute's quest to be at the forefront of the latest medical cancer research, The Oncology Institute participates in numerous clinical trials focused on various types of malignancies that may be of interest to oncology patients. The Oncology Institute is pleased to announce the opening of the following clinical trial which may benefit some patients with lung cancer.
An open-label, multicenter, single-arm, expanded access study of alectinib for patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase rearranged non small cell lung cancer previously treated with crizotinib.
The primary objective for this study is to provide access to alectinib as treatment for patients with ALK-rearranged non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) previously treated with crizotinib for whom no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapy exists.
A second primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy of alectinib in patients with ALK-rearranged NSCLC previously treated with crizotinib as measured by objective response rate, complete response, partial response, in patients with measurable disease.
Any patients that feel like they qualify for this trial, or have questions regarding eligibility, please contact Hilda Agajanian at (562) 869-1201 to schedule an evaluation.
