Summary

This study is for men who have high-risk prostate cancer who plan to be treated with a combination of radiation and hormonal therapy. A tumor genomic analysis (Decipher score) will be used to divide the subjects into two groups. Those with a low genomic risk score will be randomized to either standard treatment with radiation and 24 months of hormonal therapy or to radiation with a shorter, 12 month, course of hormone therapy. Those with a higher genomic risk score or who have lymph node involvement will be randomized to standard treatment with radiation and 24 months of standard hormonal therapy or radiation with 24 months of intensified hormonal therapy.

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

List of Studies


Keywords
Cancer, Cancer/Gastrointestinal, Cancer/Genitourinary, Cancer/Gynecological, Cancer/Head & Neck, Cancer/Lung, Drug Studies, Men's Health, Women's Health
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.

Summary

This study is for subjects with Myelofibrosis. This study is testing an "investigational" (not yet FDA approved drug) drug called Navitoclax. The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate how well the study drug works alone OR in combination with ruxolitinib on spleen volume.The subject may remain in the study until the end of clinical benefit, occurrence of unacceptable side effects or discontinuation criteria have been met.

Summary

This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with Head and Neck Cancer that spread to sites distant from the head and neck region (metastatic) or for cancer that returned or got worse after being treated (recurrent), and test positive for High-risk Human Papillomavirus-16 (HPV16) Infection.

The investigational vaccine in this study is called PDS0101. "Investigational" means the study vaccine being tested has not been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The purpose of this research is to find out if the combination of the investigational vaccine, given by subcutaneous (beneath the skin) injection and the standard of care, Pembrolizumab (KEYTRUDA®), given by IV, are effective and safe. The PDS0101 vaccine designed to boost the body's immune response against HPV 16.Participants can expect to receive treatment for about 2 years. Each person who agrees to take part in the study will be asked to come in for a minimum of 18 cycles and a maximum of 35 cycles.

Summary

This trial is for newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM) patients who, after surgery or biopsy, are good candidates for radiation therapy (RT) and temozolomide (TMZ) treatments. The purpose of this study is to see how safe and how well a medical device called Optune works together with the other standard of care treatments for GBM (RT and TMZ). Optune is a device that uses Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields) which are low intensity electric fields that interfere with the division process of cancer cells. Optune has been approved for the treatment of recurrent and newly diagnosed GBM by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. Participants in this study will be randomly assigned to one of two groups:
-The Experimental Group: TTFields using the Optune system upfront with RT and TMZ followed by the use of Optune and TMZ
-The Control Group: Beginning treatment of RT and TMZ, followed by the use of Optune and TMZ
Patients will have clinic visits every 4 weeks and continue on TTFields for 24 months until their disease gets worse or they or their doctor decided to stop treatment.

Summary

This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) that has returned (recurrent) or spread after previous treatment (metastatic). The investigational drug in this study is lenvatinib. The study will also use lenvatinib in combination with pembrolizumab, which is also experimental. The purposes of this study are to: test the safety of the study drugs, lenvatinib alone, pembro and lenvatinib together, and standard chemotherapies alone in the treatment of HNSCC; see how well the combination of pembro and lenvatinib works, compared to standard chemotherapies; and see if participants who get pembro and lenvatinib live longer than those who are treated with standard chemotherapies. Participants can expect to be on this study for about 48 months.

Summary

This is a prospective cohort study of subjects with portal hypertension to examine whether increased sphingosine 1 phosphate : ceramide ratio and circulating bile acids are associated with HPS in patients with advanced liver disease. The study will consist of 400 individuals who are evaluated for liver transplantation at the Field Centers. This population has advanced liver disease and will represent the population with cirrhosis at the Centers. As is considered standard of clinical care for these patients and required for liver transplant evaluation, patients will undergo phlebotomy, interviews, pulmonary function testing, echocardiography, and arterial blood gas sampling at their initial evaluation. During the clinical phlebotomy, additional samples will be drawn for research purposes. If any of these procedures does not occur during the clinical visit, it may be conducted for research purposes. Six minute walk testing, frailty scales, SF36, and optional actigraphy, all of which are research-only assessments, will be performed at baseline. Subjects will then be followed via phone for the duration of the study period.

Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with advanced or resistant skin cancer (melanoma), non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), certain types of solid tumors, or bladder cancer (UBC). The investigational drug in this study is RP1. RP1 is a herpes simplex virus (a microscopic life form commonly known as the "cold sore virus") that has been genetically changed to grow in and destroy cancer cells. This treatment will be injected directly into tumors. The purpose of this study is to test the safety and how well RP1 works when it is injected into certain types of solid tumors in combination with another cancer drug, called nivolumab. Participants can expect to be in this study for about 2 years.
