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 women who have endometrial cancer which has grown or has returned after earlier treatment. The purpose of the study is to see if by giving a combination of two experimental drugs or one experimental drug rather than the usual approach can lower the chance of the endometrial cancer growing or spreading by giving a combination of two experimental drugs or one experimental drug rather than the usual approach.
This study is for women with recurrent epithelial ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer that is resistant to platinum-based chemotherapy and have had prior therapy with bevacizumab.The purpose of the study is to see if the combinations of durvalumab (MEDI4736) plus olaparib and cediranib, durvalumab (MEDI4736) and cediranib, or olaparib and cediranib keep patients disease free longer than the usual approach.
This study is for subjects that have platinum-resistant recurrent ovarian cancer. The study is testing an "investigational" study drug called AVB-S6-500. The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of AVB-S6-500 combined with PAC in subjects with platinum-resistant, recurrent ovarian cancer. The subjects may remain in the study for up to 24-months. The subjects will be seen at MUSC every 1 to 2 weeks while receiving study treatment and given the study drug by infusion (IV).
This study is for patients that have a tumor that cannot be removed through surgery (unresectable) or may have spread (metastasized) to other parts of their body. In this study, ASP1951 will be given alone (monotherapy) or combined with pembrolizumab (combination therapy). Both ASP1951 and pembrolizumab will be considered study drug. Pembrolizumab has been approved by FDA for use in patients with skin, lung, cervical cancer, certain cancers of head and neck and other cancers but may not be approved to treat all types of cancer. However, the use of ASP1951 plus pembrolizumab has not been approved by regulatory authorities and is therefore investigational. The study consists of 3 periods: screening (up to 28 days), treatment (up to 48 weeks [16 cycles]) and follow up (up to 45 weeks), followed by an optional re-treatment period for participants that qualify. The re-treatment period will allow participants to receive study drug treatment again for up to 16 additional cycles (approximately 48 weeks), for a maximum total treatment and re-treatment period of 32 cycles (approximately 96 weeks). Both study drugs are administered intravenously (into the vein).This is the first time the investigational study drug ASP1951 is being tested in humans; however, studies in animals showed that the study drug is safe to be tested in humans.
This study is for patient that have been diagnosed with high-risk locally advanced cervical cancer. High-risk locally advanced cervical cancer includes participants who have Stage IB2-IIB disease with pelvic or para-aortic lymph node involvement or more advanced stages of locally advanced cervical cancer. The purpose of this study is to test the safety of the study drug, pembrolizumab, when given with chemoradiotherapy and to see how it works when given with chemotherapy and compares to treatment with chemotherapy alone. Participants can expect to be treated with study drugs for about 2 years.
This study is for women with endometrial cancer. The purpose is to find out if adding a new immunotherapy drug to the usual combination of chemotherapy drugs can lower the chance of your endometrial cancer growing or spreading.
This study is for adult women who have advanced or recurrent endometrial (uterine) cancer. The purpose is to find out if the drug combination of paclitaxel, carboplatin and metformin works better than paclitaxel and carboplatin alone in treating uterine cancer.
