CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT02913417

Reports to date show limited efficacy of immunotherapy for uveal melanoma. Recent experimental and clinical evidence suggests synergy between radiation therapy and immunotherapy. The investigators will explore this synergy with a feasibility study of 26 patients with uveal melanoma and hepatic metastases who will receive SirSpheres Yttrium-90 selective internal hepatic radiation followed by immunotherapy with the combination of ipilimumab and nivolumab.

CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT03448718

This is a single arm open label multi-institutional phase II trial of olaparib monotherapy in subjects with metastatic urothelial cancer harboring somatic DNA damage response (DDR) alterations. The primary objective of the study is to estimate the objective response rate (per RECIST 1.1) to treatment with olaparib.

CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT03414658

This research study is studying a combination of drugs as a possible treatment for breast cancer. The drugs involved in this study are: - Group A: Trastuzumab (Herceptin) + Vinorelbine (Navelbine) - Group B: Trastuzumab + Vinorelbine + Avelumab - Group C: Trastuzumab + Vinorelbine + Avelumab + Utomilumab (PF-05082566)

CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT02101385

This study will test the theory that therapy designed for each individual's tumor will improve outcomes over standard of care in a population that needs a better standard.

CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT04158141

This trial studies how well the addition of targeted radiation therapy to surgery and the usual chemotherapy treatment works for the treatment of stage I-IIIA malignant pleural mesothelioma. Targeted radiation therapy such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy or pencil beam scanning uses high energy rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed, cisplatin, and carboplatin, 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. Giving targeted radiation therapy in addition to surgery and chemotherapy may work better than surgery and chemotherapy alone for the treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma.

CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT02993523

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is an aggressive and rare cancer of myeloid cells (a white blood cell responsible for fighting infections). Successful treatment of AML is dependent on what subtype of AML the participant has, and the age of the participant when diagnosed. Venetoclax is an experimental drug that kills cancer cells by blocking a protein (part of a cell) that allows cancer cells to stay alive. This study is designed to see if adding venetoclax to azacitidine works better than azacitidine on its own. This is a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind (treatment is unknown to participants and doctors), placebo controlled study in patients with AML who are >= 18 or more years old and have not been treated before. Participants who take part in this study should not be suitable for standard induction therapy (usual starting treatment). AbbVie is funding this study which will take place at approximately 180 hospitals globally and enroll approximately 400 participants. In this study, 2/3 of participants will receive venetoclax every day with azacitidine and the remaining 1/3 will receive placebo (dummy) tablets with azacitidine. Participants will continue to have study visits and receive treatment for as long as they are having a clinical benefit. The effect of the treatment on AML will be checked by taking blood, bone marrow, scans, measuring side effects and by completing health questionnaires. Blood and bone marrow tests will be completed to see why some people respond better than others. Additional blood tests will be completed for genetic factors and to see how long the drug remains in the body.

CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT02643043

This comprehensive genomic analysis and biospecimen repository study incorporates Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) of archival tumor tissue from 200 subjects with metastatic urothelial cancer in support of several parallel goals. The immediate goal involves generation of a comprehensive report identifying subject specific genetic mutations and/or alterations based on NGS. Additionally, DNA and RNA extracted from tumor specimens and any remaining blocks/slides from the NGS will be stored for future research. Long-term, the goal of this endeavor is to support collaborative translational research projects in metastatic urothelial cancer by allowing investigators to interrogate abstracted coded clinical data linked to data from any biospecimen studies.

CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT03203473

This research study is studying two drugs at different time points as a possible treatment for advanced renal cell cancer The drugs involved in this study are: Nivolumab Ipilimumab

CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT04134260

This phase III trial studies how well adding apalutamide, abiraterone acetate, and prednisone to the usual hormone therapy and radiation therapy works compared to the usual hormone therapy and radiation therapy in treating patients with node-positive prostate cancer after surgery. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-ray to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Androgens, or male sex hormones, can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Drugs, such as apalutamide, may help stop or slow the growth of prostate cancer cell growth by blocking the androgens. Abiraterone acetate blocks some of the enzymes needed for androgen production and may cause the death of prostate cancer cells that need androgens to grow. Prednisone may help abiraterone acetate work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drug. Adding apalutamide and abiraterone acetate with prednisone to the usual usual hormone therapy and radiation therapy after surgery may stabilize prostate cancer and prevent it from spreading or extend time without disease spreading compared to the usual approach.

CLINICAL TRIAL / NCT04071223

This phase II trial studies whether adding radium-223 dichloride to the usual treatment, cabozantinib, improves outcomes in patients with renal cell cancer that has spread to the bone. Radioactive drugs such as radium-223 dichloride may directly target radiation to cancer cells and minimize harm to normal cells. Cabozantinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving radium-223 dichloride and cabozantinib may help lessen the pain and symptoms from renal cell cancer that has spread to the bone, compared to cabozantinib alone.
