This clinical research study is enrolling adults who have high triglycerides (fats in the blood). The study drug, olezarsen, is an investigational drug designed to reduce triglyceride blood levels. If you meet the requirements to participate in this study, you will be randomly assigned to receive either olezarsen or placebo (an inactive substance that contains no drug). During the treatment period, participants will be asked to complete visits every 4 weeks to include a total of 21 visits over approximately 16 months. If eligible, study medication and study visits will be provided free of charge. Compensation is available.
This study is recruiting patients who have advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with a KRAS mutation whose cancer has not responded to standard of care treatment. (All human cells have a gene called KRAS. If cells have a KRAS mutation, the cells may multiply out of control which can cause cancer.) This study has two parts. The first part of the study is being done to find the safety, tolerability and safe dose of a study drug called BBP-398 when it is used in combination with another drug that has already been approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration, called Nivolumab. The second part of the study is being done to further understand the how tumors are affected by the study drug, BBP-398, and Nivolumab. About 26 patients in the United States will participate in this study. You may be eligible if you have NSCLC with a KRAS mutation that has not responded to standard treatment. Patients who enroll in this study will be required to come to MUSC for study treatments and follow-up visits. The participation in the study can last up to 2 years with a follow up period of 3 years.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate magrolimab in combination with pembrolizumab only, with pembrolizumab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy, and with zimberelimab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy in patients with untreated metastatic head and neck cancer. Magrolimab will also be evaluated in combination with docetaxel in patients with metastatic head and neck cancer who have received prior treatment.
This study is split into two phases, the initial phase (safety run-in) is to confirm a safe dose of magrolimab in combination with pembrolizumab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy and with docetaxel. The second phase will evaluate the effectiveness of magrolimab in combination with pembrolizumab only (without chemotherapy), with pembrolizumab + platinum + 5-FU chemotherapy, with zimberelimab + platinum + 5-FU, and with docetaxel.
Other purposes of this study include determining the quantity of magrolimab in the blood, your quality of life and the side effects these drugs have on the body.
The study is for patients that have been diagnosed with low-grade non-invasive upper tract urothelial cancer. The investigational drug used in this study is padeliporfin which is injected into a vein. The main purpose of this study is to learn about the effects and safety of an investigational treatment named padeliporfin Vascular Targeted Photodynamic (VTP) Therapy, in treating low-grade non-invasive upper tract urothelial cancer. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 18 months. The completion of the study will include up to 9 study visits to the study site and 8 phone visits.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma. The purpose of this research study is to determine if lower doses of radiation therapy are as effective as the standard higher doses. Participants will have tests and procedures that would be performed as part of regular care. Participants will be assigned to one of three study groups based on your risk for cancer recurrence. Depending on the group assigned, participants receive either standard dose of radiation therapy (RT), a moderately reduced dose of RT, or an extremely reduced dose of RT. During the RT treatment, participants will also receive chemotherapy. Chemotherapy will be given at the same dose used in routine care for everybody in the study. Participants will be in the study for up to 5 years.
The primary trial objective is to see if the study drug called BI 907828 may help people with dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDLPS) and is better than the approved drug, doxorubicin.
Additional trial goals are to find an optimal dose of BI 907828
and to determine whether BI 907828 improves the response
rate, duration of response, overall survival, disease control rate, the tolerability and if the study drug has a positive impact on the quality of life, compared to doxorubicin.
Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit substance among pregnant and postpartum women, with the postpartum period being a common time for relapse to cannabis. Currently there are no interventions for preventing return to cannabis use during this vulnerable time. The goal of this research is to better understand risk factors such as stress, craving, anxiety, mood, sleep, and hormone levels that may contribute to return to cannabis use during the postpartum period in order to help develop targeted prevention and treatment interventions in the future.
This collaborative study was developed by the Lung Cancer Mutation Consortium (LCMC) and supported by the Thoracic Surgery Oncology Group (TSOG). The purpose of this study is to determine if it is possible to identify genetic changes in the tumors or blood of patients with early-stage lung cancers using both blood-based and tumor-based testing when cancer is suspected or first diagnosed. In this trial, participants will be asked to provide blood samples at three different time points. They will also be asked for permission for tumor tissue to be sent to the researchers. Tumor tissue will be collected if there is a leftover sample from a participant's surgery. These samples will be sent to the researchers to be analyzed for genetic changes. The researchers hope that in the future, genetic changes can help doctors determine what the best treatment is for patients with early-stage lung cancer.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with extensive-stage small-cell lung cancer (ES-SCLC). The investigational drug in this study is lurbinectedin. Investigational means it is not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The purpose of this study is to compare the effects, good or bad, of lurbinectedin in combination with atezolizumab versus atezolizumab alone in participants with ES-SCLC. Atezolizumab is already approved for treatment of ES-SCLC.
There are two phases of treatment. During the induction phase of the treatment, participants will receive 4 cycles of carboplatin, etoposide, and atezolizumab. One treatment cycle is 3 weeks long. During the maintenance phase of the treatment, participants will be placed in one of the following treatment groups: Arm A will receive atezolizumab and lurbinectedin given as an infusion (into the vein) on Day 1 of each 21-day cycle; Arm B will receive atezolizumab given as an infusion (into the vein) on Day 1 of each 21-day cycle.
During this study, participants will have visits approximately every 3 weeks while receiving treatment. Visits may last 3-6 hours. After the final dose, the study doctor will follow up about every 3 months. The total time in the study will depend on how the ES-SCLC responds to treatment. This could range from 1 day to more than 4 years.
This study is to explore the relationship between lupus and hypertension (high blood pressure). Female volunteers between the ages of 18-65 are needed who meet 1 of 4 possible participation types: 1. Participants with diagnosis of lupus and hypertension, 2.Participants with lupus without hypertension, 3.Participants without lupus but have hypertension, or 4. Participants that have no lupus diagnosis or hypertension.
Study participation includes a 1 time visit to the Research Nexus and involves a review of currently available medical records and a brief participant questionnaire specific to demographics and behaviors. The study visit includes a series of 3 blood pressure readings and a blood collection of approximately 2 tablespoons of blood. Compensation is available.
