A Phase III Double-Blind Trial for Surgically Resected Early Stage Non-small Cell Lung Cancer: Crizotinib Versus Placebo for Patients With Tumors Harboring the Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) Fusion Protein



Study Overview

This randomized phase III trial studies how well crizotinib works and compares it to placebo 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).


Study Description

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether adjuvant therapy with crizotinib will result in improved overall survival (OS) over placebo for patients with stage IB >= 4 cm, II and IIIA, ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) following surgical resection.
