Study Looking at Reducing Side Effects of Investigational Drug in Patients with Lung Cancer

What we are studying

Researchers want to study the side effects of an investigational drug when treating non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In addition to looking at the safety of this drug, this study will explore whether taking prophylactic medication (an oral antibiotic, a topical steroid, probiotic), or stopping the drug for a brief period of time, will minimize specific skin and GI side effects and improve the quality of life in patients.
