A Randomized Phase III Trial for Surgically Resected Early Stage Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: Crizotinib versus Observation for Patients with Tumors Harboring the Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) Fusion Protein
This randomized phase III trial studies how well crizotinib works 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.
