This study is for patients with lymph node positive or metastatic kidney cancer that is inoperable. The purpose of the study is to see if we increase the time without a patient's kidney cancer getting worse or requiring surgery by adding radiation therapy to the usual immune therapy
This study is for patients with urothelial cancer. The study is being done to see if by adding a drug called cabozantinib to standard maintenance treatment abelumab will prolog life for patients with metastatic urothelial cancer.
This study is for anyone 18 years or older who provides unpaid care for a loved one living with cancer outside of the hospital setting. The purpose of this study is to help future caregivers and patients by learning how mental fatigue affects caregivers of persons living with cancer and determine if mental fatigue, participating in self-care activities, and general caregiver quality of life are related. Informal caregivers will be invited to complete a confidential, online survey that takes between 25 and 35 minutes to finish. Caregivers who complete the survey may be contacted and asked to participate in a 45-60 minute follow up interview either online or via phone if they are interested. The results of this study will help guide future research to identify ways healthcare professionals can help caregivers handle the stresses of caregiving and provide the best care possible to their loved ones at home.
This study is for patients with kidney cancer that has spread outside of their kidney. The study is looking to see if adding surgery to the usual combination of drugs can lower the chances of kidney cancer growing or spreading.
This study is for men with prostate cancer that has come back after surgery. This study is being done to see if PET/CT scans help provide more tailored treatment recommendations and outcomes for men who have prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy (RP) and will adding focal, metastasis directed radiation treatment (e.g.., stereotactic radiation) and/or additional systemic therapy (e.g., apalutamide) to standard of care treatment help to delay progression of prostate cancer in men who have already had an RP and now have recurrence?
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.
This study is for patients that have already received standard treatments for their cancer and their cancer has gotten worse or returned after their last treatment. The purpose of this study is to learn about the effects of the study drug XL092 when given alone, in combination with atezolizumab, and in combination with avelumab by testing its safety, the ability of your body to accept the drug(s), to measure the drug(s) and/or its break-down products levels in your blood, and how your body reacts to the drug(s). This research study will be the first time XL092 alone or in combination with atezolizumab will be given to people. The study drugs in this research have not been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). There are two parts in this study, a Dose Escalation part and a Cohort Expansion part. The first part of the study was the Dose Escalation phase, when different participants were given different doses of the study drug until the safest, most effective dose was found; this part of the study has been completed. The study is now enrolling to the Cohort Expansion part of this study, where the dose that has been determined to be safe will be given to more participants with different types of cancer. The Dose Escalation part of this study has stopped and the safe dose has been found. This study is now enrolling to the Cohort Expansion part of this study, where the safe dose of the study drug found in the Dose Escalation part will be given to more participants with different types of cancer. Participants will either be assigned to the treatment group that will receive XL092 alone or the treatment group that XL092 in combination with atezolizumab. Which treatment group they are assigned depends on the type of cancer they have. TXL092 is in tablet form taken by mouth. Avelumab will be given as an intravenous (IV) infusion once every 2 weeks at the study site. Atezolizumab will be given as an intravenous (IV) infusion once every 3 weeks at the study site. Total study duration is expected to be about 6 months but participants could be in the study for up to 2 years.
This study is for men with unfavorable intermediate risk prostate cancer, a low gene risk score and plan to receive radiation therapy with hormone therapy. The purpose of the study is to answer to find out if radiation therapy alone is as effective at controlling the cancer compared to the usual combination of radiation and hormone therapy. The study is also going to determine if adding another new hormone therapy drug to the usual combination of radiation and hormone therapy increase the length of time without the prostate cancer spreading compared to the usual treatment.
This study is for men with prostate cancer with high risk disease. The purpose of this study is to see if the addition of a new drug, darolutamide, to standard Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) (a hormonal therapy that is a usual approach to treatment) after surgery cure more men with prostate cancer than using Androgen Deprivation Therapy alone.
This study is for patients with advanced kidney cancer and the purpose is to see if by adding a drug called cabozantinib to another treatment after receiving the standard treatment can prolong their life.
