This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Small-Cell Lung Cancer. The purpose of this study is to find out if this approach is better or worse than the usual approach. The usual approach is defined as care that most people get for small cell lung cancer. Participants can expect to be on this study for two years.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with unresected Stage I/II, lymph-node negative Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). The investigational drug used in this study is durvalumab. This purpose of this study is to see how if durvalumab will work and be safe for the treatment of patients with Stage I/II Non Small Cell Lung Cancer following stereotactic body radiation therapy when compared to placebo. Participants can expect to be in the study for approximately 6 years.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Resectable Stages II and III Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). The investigational drug in this study is durvalumab. The purpose of this study is to see if durvalumab will work and be safe for the treatment of resectable NSCLC. Participants can expect to be on this study for about 5 years.
The purpose of this study is to determine at what dose the study drug (ASP1948) is safe and tolerated and how it is processed in the blood of patients with tumors that cannot be removed (unresectable) or has spread (metastasized) to a different part of the body. When the safe dose is identified, it will be used to evaluate if the study treatment causes tumors to shrink in patients.The screening period for this study can take up to 28 days. The treatment period consists of up to 48 weeks of initial treatment, followed by up to 45 weeks of follow up. If you quality and are willing to continue in the re-treatment period (receiving the study drug again), you will be in the study for an additional 48 weeks.
The study will have 2 parts (Part A and Part B). Part A of this research study (the dose escalation phase) will test the safety and effectiveness of the different doses of ALKS 4230 (study drug) to find the one that is the safest and most effective. Part B of this study (the dose expansion phase) will use the safe dosing determined in Part A to see how effectively the combination of ALKS 4230 and pembrolizumab treats your solid tumors.LKS 4230 is an investigational (experimental) drug; this means that is has not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat your disease. This is an open-label study which means that all subjects will be taking the active study drugs.You can be in the study for as long as it is clinically beneficial to you.
Many survivors of lung cancer (up to 80%) have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a disease characterized by breathlessness and fatigue. A 3-month intervention targeting multiple behaviors (cigarette smoking and sedentary behavior will be tested with survivors of localized lung cancer and their family members or close friends (dyads). This study will test the feasibility of the intervention using a 3-month, single arm, proof-of-concept study.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with metastatic, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), have not received any prior chemotherapy for metastatic disease, and are eligible to receive pembrolizumab, a FDA approved standard therapy for NSCLC. The investigational drug in this study is ALT-803. In this research study, participants will be selected by chance to receive either the study drug ALT-803 in combination with pembrolizumab or will receive pembrolizumab alone. The purpose of this research study is to test the effectiveness of the study drug, ALT-803, in combination with pembrolizumab compared to pembrolizumab alone. Participants can expect to be in this study for 24 months.
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.
The primary objective of this study is to develop a blood-based gene expression signature, known as the ONC-LN-04 Lung Test, to be used in the detection of lung cancer in patients who underwent radiologic screening for lung cancer and had lung nodules detected. We intend to enroll volunteers who are being evaluated by a Ralph H. Johnson VAMC pulmonologist as part of their standard medical care. Participants will be patients who have either (a) radiologic evidence of lung nodules, or (b) a confirmed diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and has not undergone surgical excision, chemotherapy or radiation therapy for this malignancy. A single blood sample will be obtained from willing participants, then stored and analyzed for measurement of gene expression and development of the ONC-LN-04 test. Active participation in this study will be over once a blood sample is obtained; however, we may need access to participants' medical records post-enrollment and sample collection in order to monitor medical outcomes. Review of participants' medical records will occur until up to approximately 5,000 subjects have been enrolled and have provided clinical information and a blood sample.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with an advanced form of cancer and your disease improved or remained unchanged after receiving PD-1/ PD-L1 Checkpoint Inhibitor Therapy. The investigational drug in this study is called ALT-803. Participants will receive the study drug ALT-803 in combination with an approved PD-1/PD-L1 Checkpoint Inhibitor Therapy (Pembrolizumab, Nivolumab, Atezolizumab, or Avelumab). The purpose of this research study is to test the effectiveness of the study drug, ALT-803, in combination with pembrolizumab, nivolumab, atezolizumab, or avelumab in with advanced forms of cancer that initially had improvement or no change in disease after receiving checkpoint inhibitor therapy and who now have disease worsening. Participation in this study should take approximately 24 months.
