SWOG 1827: MRI Brain Surveillance Alone Versus MRI Surveillance and Prophylactic Cranial Irradiation (PCI): A Randomized Phase III Trial in Small-Cell Lung Cancer (MAVERICK)
Testing Whether the Use of Brain Scans Alone vs. Brain Scans Plus Brain Radiation Affects Lifespan in Patients With Small Cell Lung Cancer
Sponsor: NA
Enrolling: Male and Female Patients
IRB Number: AAAS8927
U.S. Govt. ID: NCT04155034

Additional Study Information: We are doing this study because we want to find out if MRI brain scans alone is better or worse than MRI brain scans plus preventative brain radiation for patients with small lung cancer. The usual approach for patients with small cell lung cancer is prophylactic cranial irradiation. If you decide to take part in this study, you will either receive PCI for two weeks and brain MRIs for two years, or you will just receive brain MRIs for two years.
