ALCHEMIST ALK- ECOG-ACRIN E4512 for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

What is the Purpose of this Study?

If you choose to join this study, you will:
- Be randomized (like the flip of a coin) to get either:
-- Group 1: The study drug crizotinib twice a day for up to 2 years
-- Group 2: Be followed for observation for up to 10 years
- Get CT scans every 6 months if less than 4 years from study entry and then every 12 months for up to 10 years from study entry
What is the Condition Being Studied?
Early Stage Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Who Can Participate in this Study?

Adults with non-small cell lung cancer who:

- Have complete surgical resection of their cancer

- Have had no prior treatment with crizotinib

- Are not pregnant or nursing

Age Group
Participating Institutions

What is Involved?

We are doing this study to see if giving the study drug Crizotinib after surgery (or chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy) will help prevent the cancer from returning.
