Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Trial of NanoPac Intratumoral Injection in Lung Cancer
This study evaluates the use of NanoPac injected directly into tumors in the lung of people with lung cancer.
NanoPac is very small (submicron) particles of the chemotherapy drug, paclitaxel, which is administered intravenously in a number of types of cancer. These submicron particles are injected directly into solid tumors to target cancer at the site of disease with less systemic exposure than intravenously administered chemotherapy. In this study, the submicron particle paclitaxel will be injected directly into tumors in the lungs of people with small cell or non-small cell lung cancer. All subjects in this study will receive NanoPac and will be evaluated to see if NanoPac is safe and has an effect on the tumor within the lung.
