Study Design
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: Erlotinib (Tarceva®)
Type: Drug
Overall Status
A phase II, multicenter, randomized trial of 3D Radiotherapy versus 3D Radiotherapy and erlotinib (Tarceva®) in patients with localized-unresectable (IA-IIIB) non-small cell lung cancer non susceptible for chemotherapy treatment, to compare safety and toxicity profile, and the progression-free survival in both arms of treatment (3D Radiotherapy versus 3D Radiotherapy + erlotinib) in patients who have not received previous chemotherapy.
