Lung (Non-Small Cell) Cancer: A151216 (Hematology Oncology Associates)

Alliance A151216: Adjuvant Lung Cancer Enrichment Marker Identification and Sequencing Trial (ALCHEMIST)


The purpose of this research study is to look at lung cancer patients’ tumors that were removed by surgery for certain genetic changes, and to possibly offer these patients a treatment study with drugs that may specifically target tumors that have these genetic changes.

We are interested to see if your tumor tissue might have one of the following two genetic changes:

  • Genetic changes in ALK
  • Genetic changes in EGFR

Related treatment studies are A081105 and E4512.
