What we are studying
The purpose of this research study is to see what effects (good and bad) the chemotherapy drug pemetrexed has on you and your condition. Pemetrexed has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients with advanced lung cancer, but current cancer treatment guidelines limit chemotherapy use to patients who are ambulatory and capable of all self-care. Pemetrexed has shown anti-cancer benefit and been well-tolerated in these patients. Side effects can be minimized with folic acid, vitamin B12, and corticosteroids. In addition to these patients, we believe that pemetrexed can provide anti-cancer benefit and be well-tolerated in patients who are capable of only limited self-care.
Parking will be validated for all study related visits.
