    Adding New Treatment to Standard Chemo

    Docetaxel is a standard chemotherapy treatment relied on by many lung cancer patients. But might these patients’ survival rates improve if a new drug is added to their treatment regimen? In this clinical trial, half of participants will receive standard of care docetaxel, and half will receive docetaxel plus a drug called ganetespib. Ganetespib works by blocking Hsp90, a type of protein in the body that cancer cells rely on for growth.

    Eligibility

    This clinical trial is open to patients with stage IIIB or IV non-small cell lung cancer (adenocarcinoma or large cell carcinoma), whose disease continued advancing after a first round of chemotherapy or targeted treatment.
