ECOG-ACRIN E4512: 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

Objective

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). 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.
