Showing trials for
  • A Phase 1b Dose Escalation/Expansion Study of Abexinostat in Combination With Pembrolizumab in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumor Malignancies

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the best dose and side effects of abexinostat and how well it works with given together with pembrolizumab in treating participants with microsatellite instability (MSI) solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body. Abexinostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving abexinostat and pembrolizumab may work better in treating participants with solid tumors.

  • A Study of Enfortumab Vedotin Alone or With Other Therapies for Treatment of Urothelial Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study will test an experimental drug (enfortumab vedotin) alone and with different combinations of anticancer therapies. Pembrolizumab is an immune checkpoint inhibitor (CPI) that is used to treat patients with cancer of the urinary system (urothelial cancer). This type of cancer includes cancer of the bladder, renal pelvis, ureter or urethra. Some parts of the study will look at locally-advanced and metastatic urothelial cancer, which means the cancer has spread to nearby tissues or to other areas of the body. Other parts of the study will look at muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), which is cancer at an earlier stage that has spread into the muscle wall of the bladder. This study will look at the side effects of enfortumab vedotin alone and with other anticancer therapies. A side effect is a response to a drug that is not part of the treatment effect. This study will also test if the cancer shrinks with the different treatment combinations.

  • Neoadjuvant Atezolizumab in Localized Bladder Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a single arm, open label Phase II study of MPDL3280A, an anti-PD-L1 antibody administered as neoadjuvant therapy to subjects with either BCG-refractory non-muscle invasive transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder, or muscle-invasive TCC appropriate for cystectomy and refusing or ineligible for neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Enrolled patients will be assigned sequentially to dose levels in cohorts of 6 patients per dose level. The starting dose level is 1200mg x 1 dose and will be escalated in subsequent cohorts to 1200mg q 3 weeks x 2 doses, and finally 1200mg q 3 weeks x 3 doses to determine the impact of increasing number of treatments on the modulated immune response with the tumor tissue. Subjects with adverse pathology (pT3/pT4 or N+) will be offered the option of adjuvant MPDL3280A for up to 16 cumulative cycles of treatment. After all neoadjuvant study therapy is administered, each subject will undergo cystectomy to evaluate pathologic response to treatment and for immunologic characterization in the resected tissue. Serum and urine will be obtained as well to characterize circulating immune responses. After the multi-dose portion of the study has completed accrual two expansion cohorts of up to 15 patients each with Non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) or Non-metastatic muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) will be accrued at the highest dose level for further characterization of safety, efficacy, and immunologic analysis. Patients with pT3, pT4, or N+ disease at the time of cystectomy and no metastatic disease will be offered the option of adjuvant MPDL3280A for up to a total of 16 cumulative cycles. All subjects will be followed clinically for up to 2 years to assess for disease recurrence.

  • Cediranib Maleate and Olaparib or Standard Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Recurrent Platinum-Resistant or -Refractory Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well cediranib maleate and olaparib work when given together or separately, and compares them to standard chemotherapy in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that has returned (recurrent) after receiving chemotherapy with drugs that contain platinum (platinum-resistant) or continued to grow while being treated with platinum-based chemotherapy drugs (platinum-refractory). Cediranib maleate and olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether giving cediranib maleate and olaparib together may cause more damage to cancer cells when compared to either drug alone or standard chemotherapy.

  • A Study of DSP-7888 Dosing Emulsion in Combination With Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors in Adult Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a Phase 1b/2, open-label, multicenter study of DSP-7888 Dosing Emulsion in combination with checkpoint inhibitors (nivolumab or pembrolizumab) in adult patients with solid tumors, that consists of 2 parts: dose search part of the study (Phase 1b) and the dose expansion part of the study (Phase 2). In Phase 1b of this study there will be 2 arms: Arm 1 and Arm 2. In Arm 1, there will be 6 to 12 patients who will be dosed with DSP-7888 Dosing Emulsion and nivolumab and in Arm 2 there will be 6 to 12 patients who will be dosed with DSP-7888 Dosing Emulsion and pembrolizumab. In addition, an enrichment cohort of a further 10 patients who have locally advanced or metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma or Urothelial Cancer with primary or acquired resistance to previous checkpoint inhibitors will be enrolled into Phase 1b of the study to help evaluate the preliminary antitumor activity of DSP-7888 Dosing Emulsion at the safe dose level identified in the dose-search part of the study, and will be dosed with DSP-7888 Dosing Emulsion and nivolumab, or DSP-7888 Dosing Emulsion and pembrolizumab, as per the investigator's preference. Once the recommended dose is determined in Phase 1b, platinum-resistant ovarian cancer (PROC) patients will be enrolled in Phase 2 of the study with DSP-7888 Dosing Emulsion, exploring the combination with pembrolizumab (Arm 2). In Phase 2, approximately 40 patients with PROC will be initially enrolled. Approximately 80 patients in total will be enrolled in the study, if both groups in Phase 2 are enriched with an additional 20 patients. This brings the total maximum study population to approximately 104 patients. Patients in the enrichment cohort will not be replaced.

  • Bevacizumab and Intravenous or Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Stage II-III Ovarian Epithelial Cancer, Fallopian Tube Cancer, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase III trial studies bevacizumab and intravenous (given into a vein) chemotherapy to see how well they work compared with bevacizumab and intraperitoneal (given into the abdominal cavity) chemotherapy in treating patients with stage II-III ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, carboplatin, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether giving bevacizumab together with intravenous chemotherapy is more effective than giving bevacizumab together with intraperitoneal chemotherapy in treating patients with ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.

  • Futibatinib and Pembrolizumab Combination in the Treatment of Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The purpose of the trial is to evaluate a response to combination of Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor (FGFR) inhibitor futibatinib and anti-programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) antibody pembrolizumab in patients with advanced or spreading urothelial cancer who are not candidates to receive a platinum-based treatment regimens. It also will help us to learn about the side effects of this combination therapy. This study will also help us to find the futibatinib and pembrolizumab predictive markers of response (i.e. benefit from specific treatment; helps to select particular treatment over another). Another objective is to evaluate the supposed futibatinib and pembrolizumab combination's immunomodulatory effects (i.e. Drug that modifies the immune response or the functioning of the immune system as by the stimulation of antibody formation or the inhibition of white blood cell activity). By conducting this study, we will learn about the variability in drug concentrations within a patient population receiving clinically relevant doses of a futibatinib and pembrolizumab. Pharmacokinetics allows us to examine how the body processes a drug.

  • Paclitaxel, Polyglutamate Paclitaxel, or Observation in Treating Patients With Stage III or Stage IV Ovarian Epithelial, Peritoneal Cancer, or Fallopian Tube Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase III trial studies paclitaxel to see how well it works compared to polyglutamate paclitaxel or observation only in treating patients with stage III or stage IV ovarian epithelial, peritoneal cancer, or fallopian tube cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel and polyglutamate paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Paclitaxel and polyglutamate paclitaxel may also stop the growth of ovarian epithelial or peritoneal cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Sometimes, after treatment, the tumor may not need additional treatment until it progresses. In this case, observation may be sufficient. It is not yet known whether paclitaxel is more effective than polyglutamate paclitaxel or observation only in treating ovarian epithelial, peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer.
