This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with stage III-IVB Head and Neck cancer. The investigational drug in this study is MEDI4736 (Durvalumab). The purpose of the safety lead-in portion of the study is to determine whether adding the study drug MEDI4736 to radiation is safe in patients with head and neck cancer who cannot take the drug cisplatin. The purpose of the phase II/III portion is to compare any good and bad effects of usual radiation plus the study treatment, MEDI4736 (durvalumab), to the usual therapy of radiation plus cetuximab in patients with head and neck cancer who cannot take the drug cisplatin. Participants in the safety lead-in portion can expect to be in this study for approximately 2.5 years. Participants in the Phase II/III portion can expect to be in the study for up to 32 weeks, and then followed by their study doctor to monitor for side effects every year.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. This study is to test whether giving one drug, atezolizumab, along with cisplatin and pemetrexed, before surgery and atezolizumab after surgery by vein is safe. Atezolizumab is the experimental cancer drug in this study, which has already been approved for the treatment of patients with bladder cancer and lung cancer. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to a year and followed for side effect for up to three years after study completion.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS). The investigational drug in this study is Temsirolimus. The purpose of this study is to find out if we can improve the treatment for subjects with intermediate risk RMS by adding temsirolimus to VAC/IV therapy. Participants can expect to be in this study for approximately 1 year and would like to continue to follow-up with the patient every year for about 10 years.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). The investigational drug in this study is Pembrolizumab. The main purpose of this study is to attempt to reduce the risk of cancer recurrence using a drug called pembrolizumab. Participants can expect to be in this study for approximately 5 years.
This study is to determine the safety and efficacy of nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine with or without olaratumab in the treatment of first-line metastatic pancreatic cancer. There is not a set number of clinic visits and subjects can remain on study provided their disease is at least stable for each imaging time point, and if study drugs are sufficiently tolerated
Barriers exist that can prevent minority and underserved populations from participating in cancer clinical trials. Social determinants can be useful for examining patient preferences and factors associated with treatment response and outcomes in order to effectively improve minority recruitment and retention into cancer clinical trials. Therefore, this study will collect data on social determinants of cancer treatment and outcomes to inform future interventions in cancer care delivery.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with follicular lymphoma. The investigational drugs used in this study are TGR-120 and Lenalidomide.The purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of using the different drugs in combination with an antibody (Obinutuzumab). Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 5 years. There are 3 study groups. Groups 1 and 2 will get treatment on the study for 48 weeks (about 11 months). Group 3 will get treatment on the study for 42 weeks (about 9
This study is for subjects who have been diagnosed with acute leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and are a candidate for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). The study is being done to learn if adding defibrotide to the standard medicines for prevention of acute Graft-versus-Host Disease (aGvHD), which is called immunoprophylaxis, will help to prevent aGvHD better than using the usual immunoprophylaxis medicines alone. The investigational drug in this study is called Defibrotide. The duration of participation for each patient is approximately 6 months.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about older adults (age 65 and older) with cancer and their overall health by completing a survey called a "geriatric assessment" (GA). A GA is designed to gather information about a patient's nutritional status, mental health, spiritual health, social support, and memory. In addition, it informs health care providers about how well you carry out your daily activities and collects information on the other health problems you may have.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with a genetic mutation called FLT3/ITD. The investigational drug in this study is called gilteritinib (ASP2215). The main purpose of this study is to learn if it is safe and effective to treat patients who have FLT3/ITD AML with a study drug called gilteritinib (ASP2215) after transplant. The sponsor wants to know if this drug works better than a placebo to stop the AML from coming back. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 7 years after they start the study drug.
