The ARCADIAN trial has received OCTRU Green Light approval and has now begun to open sites to recruitment!

ARCADIAN

FULL TITLE

A Phase I Trial of the Hypoxia Modifier Atovaquone in Combination with Radical Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy in Locally Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

 

SHORT TITLE

ARCADIAN: Atovaquone with Radical ChemorADIotherapy in locally Advanced NSCLC

 

The ARCADIAN trial has received Green Light approval from OCTRU and subsequently opened to recruitment at its first site in Oxford.

Funded by CRUK, ARCADIAN aims to investigate whether the drug atovaquone can be safely given to patients undergoing chemoradiotherapy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).

Atovaquone has previously been shown to reduce tumour hypoxia, a state which can cause resistance to traditional cancer treatments. If the study shows that it is safe to administer atovaquone with chemoradiotherapy, further studies would be planned to assess the efficacy of this combination treatment.
