18F-FSPG PET / CT in Imaging Patients with Newly Diagnosed Lung Cancer or Indeterminate Pulmonary Nodules

Lung

This phase II trial compares fluorine F 18 L-glutamate derivative BAY94-9392 (18F-FSPG) positron emission tomography (PET) / computed tomography (CT) to the standard of care fludeoxyglucose F-18 (18F-FDG) PET / CT in imaging patients with newly diagnosed lung cancer or indeterminate pulmonary nodules. PET / CT uses a radioactive glutamate (one of the common building blocks of protein) called 18F-FSPG which may be able to recognize differences between tumor and healthy tissue. Since tumor cells are growing, they need to make protein, and other building blocks, for cell growth that are made from glutamate and other molecules. PET / CT using a radioactive glutamate may be a more effective method of diagnosing lung cancer than the standard PET / CT using a radioactive glucose (sugar), such as 18F-FDG.

Long Term Follow-up for Early Detection of Lung Cancer in Current or Former Smokers

Lung

This research trial studies the long term follow-up for early detection of lung cancer in current or former smokers. Following up on smokers by collecting and analyzing specimens in the laboratory, performing chest computed tomography (CT) scans, as well as reviewing medical records may help doctors detect lung cancer at an earlier stage.

Nivolumab and Vorolanib in Treating Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Refractory Thoracic Tumors

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of vorolanib when given in combination with nivolumab in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer and thoracic tumors that aren't responding to treatment. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Vorolanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving nivolumab and vorolanib may work better in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer and thoracic tumors.

Integrated Telehealth or In-Person Palliative Care in Improving Quality of Life in Patients with Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This randomized clinical trial studies how well integrated telehealth or in-person palliative care works in improving quality of life in patients with non-small lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Early involvement in palliative care may lesson many of the distressing physical and emotional symptoms and help patients and their families cope with serious illness as well as improve patients’ and their loved ones’ experience with cancer. Integrated telehealth palliative care involves patients meeting with palliative care clinicians using secure video-conferencing technology. It is not yet known whether giving integrated telehealth or in-person palliative care works better for patients and their families in improving quality of life.
