RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known which schedule of radiation therapy is more effective when given together with chemotherapy in treating small cell lung cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying two different schedules of radiation therapy to compare how card card-body bg-light well they work when given together with cisplatin and etoposide in treating patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer.
CCTG would like to announce the permanent trial closure of BL12: A Multicentre Randomized Phase II Trial Comparing Nab-Paclitaxel to Paclitaxel in Patients with Advanced Urothelial Cancer Progressing on or after a Platinum Containing Regimen
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects on urothelial cancer of nab-paclitaxel compared to paclitaxel to treat this disease. This research is being done because currently there is no effective treatment for urothelial cancer that has progressed after prior chemotherapy.
