The purpose of this study is to learn about the effects of an experimental treatment called E7386. This study is for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, colorectal cancer, endometrial cancer, or other solid tumors. E7386 in combination with levantinib fight tumors by decreasing tumor density. The purpose of this study is to learn about the effects of an experimental treatment called E7386. E7386 is considered "experimental" because it has not been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of any disease. Levantinib is FDA approved and has been previously used to treat cancer, however, it is considered experimental in combination with E7386.
This study is recruiting patients who have advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with a KRAS mutation whose cancer has not responded to standard of care treatment. (All human cells have a gene called KRAS. If cells have a KRAS mutation, the cells may multiply out of control which can cause cancer.) This study has two parts. The first part of the study is being done to find the safety, tolerability and safe dose of a study drug called BBP-398 when it is used in combination with another drug that has already been approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration, called Nivolumab. The second part of the study is being done to further understand the how tumors are affected by the study drug, BBP-398, and Nivolumab. About 26 patients in the United States will participate in this study. You may be eligible if you have NSCLC with a KRAS mutation that has not responded to standard treatment. Patients who enroll in this study will be required to come to MUSC for study treatments and follow-up visits. The participation in the study can last up to 2 years with a follow up period of 3 years.
This study is for subjects that have been diagnosed with cancer in their arm, leg, or trunk (the part of the body that involves the chest, abdomen, and pelvis). The purpose of this research study is to preserve healthy tissue around the cancer on the arm(s) and/or leg(s) using Hypofractionated Radiotherapy, while treating the cancer and preventing it from spreading to other areas of the body. Participation in the study will take about 15 visits over a period of 15 months.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate magrolimab in combination with pembrolizumab only, with pembrolizumab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy, and with zimberelimab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy in patients with untreated metastatic head and neck cancer. Magrolimab will also be evaluated in combination with docetaxel in patients with metastatic head and neck cancer who have received prior treatment.
This study is split into two phases, the initial phase (safety run-in) is to confirm a safe dose of magrolimab in combination with pembrolizumab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy and with docetaxel. The second phase will evaluate the effectiveness of magrolimab in combination with pembrolizumab only (without chemotherapy), with pembrolizumab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy, with zimberelimab + platinum + 5-FU, and with docetaxel.
Other purposes of this study include determining the quantity of magrolimab in the blood, your quality of life and the side effects these drugs have on the body.
The study is for patients that have been diagnosed with low-grade non-invasive upper tract urothelial cancer. The investigational drug used in this study is padeliporfin which is injected into a vein. The main purpose of this study is to learn about the effects and safety of an investigational treatment named padeliporfin Vascular Targeted Photodynamic (VTP) Therapy, in treating low-grade non-invasive upper tract urothelial cancer. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 18 months. The completion of the study will include up to 9 study visits to the study site and 8 phone visits.
This trial will enroll patients 50 years and older with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Patients above age 50 years are not eligible for intensive chemotherapy regimens and have been shown to have worse outcomes than adolescents and young adults treated with the same chemotherapy. For instance, the 5-year survival for patients aged 55-65 years treated on an international ALL trial was 21% compared to 38% for younger patients. Similarly, the 5-year survival for patients treated at MD Anderson Cancer Center with the hyper-CVAD regimen was 30% for patients aged 40-59 years compared to 51% for those less then age 40 years.
This study is for patients who have newly diagnosed diagnosed BCR-ABL acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). This study is being done to determine the effects (good or bad) of using the combination of a Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI), steroids and blinatumomab versus treatment with steroids, Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI) and chemotherapy. This investigational therapy will be added to what has traditionally been used to treat your specific sub-type of ALL. Studies are being done in ALL and other blood cancers with blinatumomab.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma. The purpose of this research study is to determine if lower doses of radiation therapy are as effective as the standard higher doses. Participants will have tests and procedures that would be performed as part of regular care. Participants will be assigned to one of three study groups based on your risk for cancer recurrence. Depending on the group assigned, participants receive either standard dose of radiation therapy (RT), a moderately reduced dose of RT, or an extremely reduced dose of RT. During the RT treatment, participants will also receive chemotherapy. Chemotherapy will be given at the same dose used in routine care for everybody in the study. Participants will be in the study for up to 5 years.
The primary trial objective is to see if the study drug called BI 907828 may help people with dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDLPS) and is better than the approved drug, doxorubicin.
Additional trial goals are to find an optimal dose of BI 907828
and to determine whether BI 907828 improves the response
rate, duration of response, overall survival, disease control rate, the tolerability and if the study drug has a positive impact on the quality of life, compared to doxorubicin.
This study is for patients scheduled for a bronchoscopy procedure for evaluation of lung transplantation, lung disease, and lung nodules. Those who give consent to participate in this study will be randomized into one of two lung biopsy sampling method groups: Group 1) 1.1 mm single-use Cryoprobe or Group 2) conventional 2.0 mm forceps. These devices are used with a bronchoscope to obtain lung tissue biopsy samples and are being evaluated to determine which is better for confirming a diagnosis. All procedures will be done via standard of care and screening will be accomplished via medical chart review. Subjects will have two in-person appointments and one follow-up telephone call. The first of which is their standard of care office visit with the doctor to go over their plan of care. The second visit is for the standard of care bronchoscopy procedure to obtain biopsy samples. Thirty days following the procedure, a member of the study team will call the subject to assess whether any adverse events may have occurred since the procedure.
