Title: A Randomized Study of Tremelimumab Plus Durvalumab Combination With or Without Radiation in Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer1

Principal Investigator: Taofeek K. Owonikoko, MD, PhD, Emory University

Description: For this open-label phase 2 study (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02701400), researchers are evaluating the efficacy of tremelimumab plus durvalumab alone or with radiation therapy among patients with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) who fail first-line therapy.

Patients will be randomly assigned to receive intravenous (IV) tremelimumab and durvalumab over 1 hour on day 1 every 4 weeks for up to 1 year, or stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) or hypofractionated radiation therapy for 5 days over 1 week or for 3 fractions every other day for 1 week plus IV tremelimumab and durvalumab.

The primary outcomes are progression-free survival and the objective response rate.

The estimated study enrollment is 20 patients.
