Conquering Diseases

Study for Lung Cancer Patients Adding Radiation to Standard Chemotherapy Treatment

Description

Seeking adult men and women who have advanced non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Patients must have received treatment and disease is currently stable.

Overview

The purpose of this research study is to compare any good and bad effects of using the usual drug therapy plus radiation with or without surgery to treat the lung cancer and areas of metastasis (where the cancer has spread) compared with the usual drug therapy alone.

What we're hoping for

We are hoping to find out if the study approach is better than the usual approach
