Summary

This is an observational study, which means that only information is collected on treatment, examinations or diagnostic tests which are a part of the routine standard of care. The participant is being asked to volunteer because they have been diagnosed with locally advanced or metastatic TRK fusion cancer treated with larotrectinib. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the safety profile and the effectiveness of VITRAKVI® under routine practice conditions.
Participants will be followed for a minimum of 5 years from the time they agree to participate in the study.

Keywords
Brain, Cancer, Pediatrics
Summary

This study is for patients that have been newly diagnosed with BRAF v600-Mutant High-Grade Glioma (HGG). The overall goal of this study is to see if using two drugs called dabrafenib and trametinib after radiation treatment will be better than treatments used in the past in helping to get rid of or shrink HGG. The treatment involves cancer fighting medicines plus radiation. The treatment on this study takes a little over 2 years. It is divided into 2 phases of therapy.

Ovarian Cancer Survival in African-American Women

Date Added

PRO Number

Researcher
Andrew Lawson

List of Studies

Keywords

Summary

Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the 5th leading cause of cancer death in women in the U.S. African-American (AA) women have the lowest survival of any racial/ethnic group,1 yet little is known about factors affecting survival among AAs. The African American Cancer Epidemiology Study (AACES) is a multi-site epidemiologic study of AA women in diverse geographic regions. AACES has enrolled an unprecedented number of AA participants during a previous funding period, 593 AA women with invasive EOC and 752 controls, making AACES the largest study of ovarian cancer in AA women to date. Prior to AACES, no epidemiologic study of ovarian cancer had enrolled more than 150 AA cases and 150 AA controls. Due to comprehensive data collection, pathology assessment and length of follow-up, AACES is uniquely positioned to evaluate factors influencing the survival of EOC in AA women. The causes of the poor outcomes in AA women are likely multifactorial and need to be examined from multiple levels, including factors affecting both the neighborhood social environment and individual level factors.

A Phase II Study of Talazoparib Plus Avelumab in Patients with Stage IV or Recurrent Non-Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Bearing Pathogenic STK11 Genomic Alterations (LUNG-MAP Sub-Study)

Date Added
July 27th, 2020
PRO Number
Pro00100716
Researcher
John Wrangle

List of Studies

Keywords
Cancer, Cancer/Lung, Lung
Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the objective response rate (ORR) (confirmed and unconfirmed, complete and partial) with talazoparib plus avelumab in patients with Stage IV or recurrent non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer bearing pathogenic STK11 genomic alterations that were previously-treated with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 therapy and platinum-based chemotherapy. The investigational drugs used in this study are talazoparib and avelumab. Talazoparib and avelumab are drugs that may increase the ability of your immune system to fight lung cancer. Participants can expect to be on this study until disease progression, the side effects come to severe or they choose to discontinue the study. Participants will be followed by the study doctor for up to 3 years.

Early measurement of ST2 as a prognostic biomarker for future occurrence of acute GVHD II-IV in a prospective multisite study

Date Added

PRO Number
Pro00100472
Researcher
Sophie Paczesny

List of Studies

Keywords
Cancer
Summary

The purpose of this study is to collect two blood specimens and information about participants who are receiving a standard of care bone marrow or stem cell transplant to use and help better understand graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). One potential new way to help researchers better understand GVHD is through a biomarker (a substance found in your blood/tissue) called ST2. The new information learned from this study could then be used in future research for patients undergoing stem cell transplants. This is a non-interventional study (no drugs involved).

A Phase II Study of LOXO-292 in Patients with RET Fusion-Positive Stage IV or Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (LUNG-MAP Sub-Study)

Date Added

Researcher
John Wrangle

List of Studies

Keywords
Cancer, Cancer/Lung, Lung
Summary

This study is for patients who have RET Fusion-Positive Stave IV or Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. The purpose of this study is to see if we can lower the chance of RET Fusion-Positive Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer growing or spreading by using the study drug selpercatinib (LOXO-292). Selpercatinib (LOXO-292) is a drug that inhibits RET, a biomarker present in your tumor. Participants will be on this study until disease progression, the side effects become too severe or until they choose to discontinue the study. Participants will be followed by the study doctor for up to 3 years.

List of Studies

Keywords
Cancer, Cancer/Lung, Lung
Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread outside of the lungs, and the tumor sample has a biomarker which is positive for LOH (loss of heterozygosity) or BRCA1/2 mutations. The purpose of this study is to test the good and bad effects of the study drug, rucaparib. Rucaparib is a drug that works by slowing or stopping the growth of cancer cells. Patients can expect to be on this study until disease progression or until the side effects become too severe. Patients will then be followed by their study doctor for up to 3 years after study completion.

Transbronchial Biopsy Assisted by Robot Guidance in the Evaluation of Tumors of the Lung (TARGET trial)

Summary

Physicians currently have difficulty getting a biopsy of lung spots that are far from the center of the lung. The bronchoscopes that are currently used to reach these spots are sometimes difficult to maneuver and are unable to reach these spots. This study will test the performance of a new robotic bronchoscope that uses navigation software to find the distant spots in the lung so physicians can successfully get a biopsy.
