  • A Cancer Vaccine (Labvax 3(22)-23) and GM-CSF for the Treatment of Advanced Stage Adenocarcinoma

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial tests the safety and side effects of a cancer vaccine called Labvax 3(22)-23 and GM-CSF in treating adenocarcinoma that has spread to other places in the body (advanced stage). Labvax 3(22)-23 is designed to target a specific antigen (labyrinthin), which is a protein found on the surface of adenocarcinoma tumor cells. Labyrinthin is a protein that is not expressed on normal cells in the skin, lungs, salivary glands, pancreas, nor other tissues. In adenocarcinoma, the tumor cells produce too much labyrinthin causing them to express this protein on the surface of the tumor cells. One way to control the growth of these tumor cells is to teach the immune system to generate an immune response against the labyrinthin protein by vaccination against labyrinthin. GM-CSF, or sargramostim, is a protein that acts as a white blood cell growth factor. It has also been shown to stimulate immune system. Thus, administration of GM-CSF may help to boost the immune system response when given together with the vaccine. This study may improve the general knowledge about Labvax 3(22)-23 and how the body may generate an immune response to kill adenocarcinoma tumor cells.

  • CMP-001 in Combination With IV PD-1-Blocking Antibody in Subjects With Certain Types of Advanced or Metastatic Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    CMP-001-009 is a Phase 2 study of intratumoral CMP-001 in combination with an intravenous PD-1-blocking antibody administered to participants with certain types of advanced or metatastic cancer. The primary objective of the study is to determine the Investigator-assessed confirmed objective response with CMP-001 in combination with a programmed cell death protein (PD-1)-blocking antibody in subjects with certain types of advanced or metatastic cancer. The secondary objectives are to: - To evaluate the safety and tolerability of CMP-001 administered by intratumoral (IT) injection in combination with a PD-1-blocking antibody in study subjects. - To evaluate the efficacy of CMP-001 in combination with a PD-1-blocking antibody in study subjects. Participants will continue to receive treatment of CMP-001 in combination with a PD-1-blocking antibody according to the treatment schedule until a reason for treatment discontinuation is reached.

  • FS118 First in Human Study in Patients With Advanced Malignancies

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study will be conducted in adult participants diagnosed with advanced tumors to characterize the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and activity of FS118. This is a Phase 1/2, multi-center, open-label, multiple-dose, first-in-human study, designed to systematically assess safety and tolerability, to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) for FS118 in participants with advanced tumors and to determine the efficacy of FS118 in participants with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). Pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, immunogenicity, and response will also be assessed.

  • Imaging of Solid Tumors Using FAP-2286

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a multi-arm prospective trial that evaluates the ability of a novel imaging radiolabeled agents to detect metastatic cancer in participants with solid tumors using a gallium 68 (68Ga-) or copper 64 (64Cu-) FAP-2286 tracer. FAP-2286 is a peptidomimetic molecule that that binds to Fibroblast Activation Protein (FAP). FAP is a transmembrane protein expressed on cancer-associated fibroblasts, and has been shown to be present on a number of solid tumors.

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects of pembrolizumab in treating patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and malignant neoplasms that have come back (relapsed), do not respond to treatment (refractory), or have distributed over a large area in the body (disseminated). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
