Clinical trials are an important way to improve treatment for people with cancer. While most are continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the period of time that clinical trials are available and recruiting may change quickly. If you would like to get involved in a clinical trial, speak to your treatment team or the health service where the clinical trial is being undertaken, to confirm it is open and appropriate for you. For cancer information and support, call Cancer Council's experienced cancer nurses on 13 11 20 Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.

AstraZeneca

Summary

This is a single arm study. Eligible participants will receive durvalumab (immunotherapy) at the same time as 4-cycles of cisplatin/carboplatin and etopside chemotherapy, which will be given as an injection every three weeks for up to 12 weeks. Maintenance therapy with durvalumab will continue for 4 weeks once the chemotherapy cycles have been completed, until there is evidence of disease progression. Participants will also receive 10 chest radiotherapy sessions, which will take approx. 2 weeks to complete (given either concurrently with cycle 3 or 4 of chemotherapy (called concurrent radiotherapy) or within 6 weeks of finishing chemotherapy (called consolidation radiotherapy).
