Safety and Efficacy of Saracatinib In Subjects With Lymphangioleiomyomatosis
This study is being done to determine if there is a potential benefit of saracatinib in LAM subjects. Based on the information of this trial, additional clinical development trials will be needed. The study will also test the tolerability of 125 mg of saracatinib given once daily over a 9 month period.
Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
