Summary

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.

Summary

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).

A Phase 1b Study of ASP1951, a GITR Agonistic Antibody, as a Single Agent and in Combination with Pembrolizumab in Subjects with Advanced Solid Tumors

Keywords

Summary

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.
