SJH 14-095-Alliance A081105- A randomized double blind placebo controlled study of Erlotinib or placebo in patients with completely resected epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (Alchemist 2)
This randomized phase III trial studies how well erlotinib hydrochloride compared to observation works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been completely removed by surgery. Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
