SCLC is a disease in which cancer cells form in the tissues of the lung. About 10-15 percent of lung cancers are SCLC. Tobacco use is the number one cause of SCLC.
Because SCLC tends to spread quickly, it is important to get diagnosed and obtain treatment as soon as possible. The standard of care for SCLC is chemotherapy.
Our clinical trials for SCLC add an investigational medicine to the standard chemotherapy regimen. If you have been diagnosed with SCLC, sign up to be contacted with enrollment information.
