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.

Trial Overview Read MoreRead more

This phase II study is evaluating the effect of a targeted therapy (alectinib) in people with newly diagnosed metastatic non-squamous small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) or people with advanced solid cancers with ALK gene alterations.
 

This trial is treating patients with newly diagnosed metastatic non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer, and advanced or metastatic solid cancers with ALK gene alteration.

This is a systemic therapy trial.

You may be able to join this trial if:

  • You are able to swallow medication by mouth.
  • You have been diagnosed with cancer, but have not received any treatment.
  • You have had treatment but your cancer has gotten worse or has not responded to the treatment you have been given.
  • Your cancer has not spread to other parts of the body.
  • Your cancer has spread to other parts of the body.

You may be excluded from this trial if:

  • You have a certain disease or psychological condition.
  • You have been diagnosed with a prior or secondary type of cancer.
  • You have had certain treatments, surgical procedures or drugs.
  • You have previously been treated (or are currently being treated) on a clinical trial.

Clinical trials have complex eligibility criteria - talk to your doctor about your interest in this trial.
