A Phase 2, randomized, open-label three-arm clinical study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of lenvatinib (E7080/MK-7902) in combination with pembrolizumab (MK-3475) versus standard of care chemotherapy and lenvatinib monotherapy in participants with recurrent/metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (R/M HNSCC) that have progressed after platinum therapy and immunotherapy (PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors) (LEAP-009)

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 study is for subjects that have advanced solid tumors or lymphoma and for whom standard life-prolonging measures are not available.
The purpose of the study is to test the safety of ASTX660 and to see if this drug has an effect on treating cancer. The drug (ASTX660) that will be given in this study is investigational, meaning that it has not yet been approved for treatment of any disease, including cancer. The drug will be given in pill form. The subject may remain in the study for study is estimated to last about 78 months (6.5 years). The exact amount of time the subject will be receiving study drug or be followed up for health information as part of the study depends on how they respond to and tolerate the study drug.

Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).The investigational drug used in this study is CLN-081.

This study has 3 parts; Phase 1 Dose Escalation, Phase 1 Dose Expansion, and Phase 2a Dose Expansion:
-Phase 1 Dose Escalation: The main aim of this part of the study is to find a maximum tolerated dose for CLN-081. This will be done by slowly increasing the dose given to each participant or to small groups of participants until certain adverse effects are seen. All participants will be closely monitored by the study doctor and team. When the maximum tolerated dose has been found, it will be used in the subsequent parts of the study.
-Phase 1 Dose Expansion: In this part of the study more participants will receive the maximum tolerated dose to confirm the safety of this dose of the study medicine and to explore different dosing schedules, for example, taking the study medicine once a day versus twice a day.
-Phase 2a Dose Expansion: The main aim of this part of the study will be to see how well the study medicine works in reducing tumor size.

Participants can expect to be on this study for about 3 years.

Summary

This study is for a patient that have received previous treatment for renal cell carcinoma. During this study, patients will be randomized to get the investigational drug, MK-6482, or a standard of care drug, everolimus. This is a study to test if MK-6482 or the standard of care drug works better for patientsr type of prostate cancer. MK-6482 is considered experimental. "Experimental" means that the study drug is currently being tested for patientsr type of cancer. It has not been approved by certain health authorities, such as the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat prostate cancer. Where as, everolimus, has been an approved standard of care chemotherapy by the FDA.
Participants can expect to be in this study for 4 years.

Summary

This study is for patients that are getting an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) from an unrelated donor for a hematologic malignancy, (cancers that affect the blood and/or lymphatic system). The investigational drug in this study is Vedolizumab. This purpose of this study is to investigate the safety and effectiveness of Vedolizumab compared to placebo (dummy drug), for prevention of intestinal acute graft versus-host disease (aGvHD) in patients undergoing allo-HSCT. GvHD occurs when particular types of white blood cell (T cells) in the donated cells (the graft) attack patients own body cells.

Summary

The Sponsor of this research study is trying to develop a new experimental diagnostic blood test that may help detect colorectal cancer and other diseases. A diagnostic test identifies a specific disease or condition. Experimental means the test has not received approval by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for sale.
The main goal of this research study is to collect health information and blood samples from people who are going to have a standard-of-care screening colonoscopy. The blood samples along with other health information from patients who take part in the study may help the Sponsor develop new diagnostic tests that may help detect cancer or other diseases in other patients in the future.

Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with PD-L1 Positive Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC).
