Site for Protocol NRG-LU007: RAndomized Phase II/III Trial Of Consolidation Radiation + Immuno-therapy for ES-SCLC: RAPTOR trial (NCT # NCT04402788) (PSCI# 20-118)
The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment of the immune therapy drug atezolizumab alone, to using radiation therapy plus the usual treatment. The addition of radiation to the usual treatment could shrink your cancer or prevent it from returning. This study will help the study doctors find out if this different approach is better, the same or worse than the usual approach. To decide if it is better, the study doctors will be looking to see if the study approach increases the life of patients or extends your time without disease compared to the usual approach.
