Summary

This study is for adult male and female subjects that have been diagnosed with B-cell leukemias and lymphomas. In this research study, some of the subjects immune cells (called T cells) will be taken during a procedure called ‘apheresis', and genetically modified in the laboratory, in order to recognize a protein on the cancer cells. The investigational treatment in this study is called CD19-CD34t metabolically programmed CAR-T cells. The purpose of this study is to test whether these genetically CD19-CD34 CAR T-cells when re-introduced back into the body, will be able to safely and effectively attack the cancer cells. The investigators also want to determine the dose of genetically modified CD19-CD34 CAR T-cells which can be safely administered to subjects. Subjects can expect to be in this study for up to 15 years.

Summary

This study is for subjects that have been diagnosed with advanced cancer. The purpose of this study is to find subjects with advanced cancer that had an exceptional disease response (improvement) while being treated with standard immunotherapy agents. This study will monitor their progression through a series of blood draws. Subjects will either continue immunotherapy or have completed immunotherapy. Participation in the study will take about 6 visits over a period of about 2 years. During this time the study team will follow your care by clinic visit, phone contact and/or medical record review every three months to collect information on the status of your cancer. This is not a treatment study.

Keywords

Summary

This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment alone to using SBRT plus the usual treatment. This study will help the study doctors find out if this different approach is better than the usual approach. To decide if it is better, the study doctors will be looking to see if the addition of SBRT increases the life of patients by 6 months or more compared to the usual approach. The study drugs are nivolumab and ipilimumab. Participants can expect to be on this study for up to 2 years.

Summary

This study is for subjects that have metastatic urothelial cancer (mUC). Metastatic means your cancer has spread outside the area where it started and has spread to distant parts or organs of the body. This study is testing an "investigational" (not yet Food and Drug Administration, FDA, approved drug) study drug called sacituzumab govitecan. Sacituzumab govitecan is given intravenously, through IV. The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate treatment with sacituzumab govitecan alone and in combination with other treatments namely cisplatin, avelumab and pembrolizumab improves tumor shrinkage. They are antibodies made in a laboratory that blocks signals that the cancer sends to quiet your immune system. By blocking that signal your immune system can see the cancer as foreign and fight it. The subject may remain in the study for 18 months. They may receive additional treatment beyond 18 months if they are tolerating and showing benefit form the treatment.

A Phase II/III Study of N-803 (ALT-803) Plus Pembrolizumab Versus Standard of Care in Participants With Stage IV or Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Previously Treated With Anti-PD-1 or Anti-PD-L1 Therapy (Lung-MAP Non-Match Sub-Study)

Summary

This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with Stage IV or Recurrent Non-small cell lung cancer previously treated with Anti-PD-1 or Anti-PD-L1 therapy. The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatments to using N-803 (ALT-803) plus pembrolizumab. N-803 (ALT-803) is an experimental drug that may activate someone's natural killer cells so that they can stimulate an immune response to help fight cancer. Natural killer cells, part of our immune system, are always on alert and ready to defend our bodies from many kinds of infection or rogue cells, such as those that cause cancer. This immunotherapy drug combination, N-803 (ALT-803) plus pembrolizumab, is not approved by the FDA for use in advanced lung cancer. Participants can expect to be on this study until disease progression, the side effects become too severe, or the participant decides to discontinue the study.

Summary

This study is for patients with invasive cancer I-IV and be scheduled to receive anti-PD-1/-L1 ICI-containing therapy. This study is being done to see if we can understand which patients will develop side effects from immune checkpoint inhibitors, and what kind of side effects they will get and can we predict long-term treatment outcomes after immune checkpoint inhibitor treatment, like which patients will have a cancer that shrinks or disappears.

T-reg function changes: a novel immune regulatory effect underlying benefit of statin use on lethal prostate cancer

List of Studies

Keywords

Summary

This study is for subjects that have been diagnosed with prostate cancer that can be removed by surgery. The purpose of this study is to determine whether a group of drugs called statins can help to reduce the risk of prostate cancer returning after surgery. The drug used in this study is a particular type of statin called simvastatin. Simvastatin is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help lower cholesterol (fatty deposits in your blood) and decrease the risk of heart disease. Its use in this research study is considered investigational, and not FDA approved for the subject's cancer. Subjects can expect to be in the active participation portion of this study for about 3 months. Afterwards, the study team may contact them or their medical providers every 6 months to follow their cancer care and collect information on their current health status.

Summary

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the IDION iTempShield ("Shield") temperature monitoring service for those undergoing outpatient stem cell transplantation or CAR T-cell therapy and therefore, may be at more risk to develop an infection. The iTempShield is a device that sticks to the chest like a sticker and can monitor and report temperature through the accompanying app that wirelessly connects to the device. Study participation will last for up to 60 days. Having continuous temperature monitoring using the IDION iTempShield may provide early detection of a fever for patients, which is one of the first signs of infection.

Summary

This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with locoregionally advanced squamous cell carcinoma. The purpose of this study is to compare two usual treatment approaches to head and neck cancer: high-dose cisplatin given every 3 weeks with radiation to low-dose cisplatin given weekly with radiation. The usual approach for patients who are not in this study is treatment with radiation therapy combined with the chemotherapy drug cisplatin. Cisplatin is a drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat your head and neck cancer. Cisplatin can be given at different doses and at different times during radiation, but the most common way to give cisplatin is either as a high-dose every 3 weeks or a low-dose weekly during radiation. Participants can expect to be on this study for up to 7 weeks and then followed annually until disease progression.
