  • A Study of RGX-104 With or Without Nivolumab in Patients With Advanced Solid Malignancies and Lymphoma

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Study RGX-104-001 is a Phase 1, first-in-human, dose escalation and expansion study of RGX-104, an oral small molecule targeting the liver X receptor (LXR), as a single agent and in combination with nivolumab. RGX-104 activates LXR, resulting in depletion of both myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) as well as tumor blood vessels. MDSCs block the ability of T-cells and other cells of the immune system from attacking tumors. During the dose escalation stage, multiple doses and schedules of orally administered RGX-104 with or without nivolumab (single agent or combination therapy) will be evaluated in patients with advanced solid tumors and lymphoma (i.e., locally advanced and unresectable, or metastatic) who have had progressive disease (PD) on available standard systemic therapies or for which there are no standard systemic therapies of relevant impact. In the expansion stage of the study, additional patients with epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC), melanoma, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), small cell lung cancer (SCLC), renal cell cancer (RCC), bladder cancer (BLC), or triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) will be treated at the MTD (or maximum tested dose if no MTD is identified, or dose below the MTD if there is evidence suggesting a more favorable risk/benefit profile). This stage will provide further characterization of the safety, efficacy, PK, and pharmacodynamics, including biomarkers of immunologic activity and LXR target activation, of RGX-104 as a single agent (EOC) and in combination with nivolumab (melanoma, NSCLC, SCLC, RCC, BLC, and TNBC).

  • Anti-tumor Immune Response in Patients With Cancer Undergoing Radiation Therapy

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This research trial studies the effect of radiation therapy on tumor immunity. Standard radiation therapy destroys tumor cells. In response to tumor cell death caused by radiation therapy, the body has an ability to stimulate an anti-tumor response (immunity), but this response is often ineffective in shrinking tumor tissue. Collecting samples of blood from patients before, during, and after radiation therapy to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about the effects of radiation therapy on anti-tumor response.

  • Experimental medicine safety and dosing to treat advanced solid tumors

    β€œCan experimental medicine change how genes work in cancer cells?”

    open to eligible people ages 18-120

    Background: - FdCyd (also called 5-fluoro-2'-deoxycytidine) and THU (also called tetrahydrouridine) are experimental cancer treatment drugs. FdCyd may change how genes work in cancer cells. THU helps keep FdCyd from being broken down by the body. FdCyd and THU have been given to people on other cancer treatment trials, usually by vein. Researchers want to give FdCyd and THU by mouth to see if they work against cancers that have not responded to earlier treatments. Objectives: - To test oral FdCyd and THU on advanced solid tumors that have not responded to earlier treatments. Eligibility: - Individuals at least 18 years of age who have advanced solid tumors that have not responded to standard treatments. Design: - Participants will be screened with a physical exam and medical history. Blood and urine samples will be collected. Imaging studies and tumor samples will used to study the cancer before treatment. - FdCyd and THU will be given in 21-day cycles. THU should be taken 30 minutes before taking FdCyd. - Participants will take FdCyd and THU by mouth, once a day, for 3 days at the beginning of the first and second weeks of each cycle (days 1 3 and 8 10). The drugs will not be taken during the entire third week of each cycle. - Treatment will be monitored with frequent blood tests and imaging studies. - Treatment will continue as long as the cancer is responding to the drugs and serious side effects do not develop....

  • Germ-Line Mutations in Blood and Saliva Samples From Patients With Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This research trial studies germ-line mutations in blood and saliva samples from patients with cancer. Studying samples of blood and saliva from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about how inherited genetic mutations can affect cancer predisposition (an inherited increase in the risk of developing cancer), their impact on treatment response, and their role in cancer development.

  • Impact of Phone Call About Financial Reimbursement Program on Access to Cancer Clinical Trials

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This trial studies how well a follow-up phone call regarding financial reimbursement program (FRP) works in improving cancer patients' access to therapeutic cancer clinical trials. Follow-up phone call intervention regarding FRP may improve recruitment of cancer patients to cancer therapeutic clinical trials.

  • Long-Term Follow-up Protocol for Subjects Treated With Gene-Modified T Cells

    open to all eligible people

    This is a prospective study for the long-term follow-up (LTFU) of safety and efficacy for all pediatric and adult subjects exposed to Gene-modified (GM) T cell therapy participating in a previous Celgene sponsored or Celgene alliance partner sponsored study. Subjects who received at least one GM T cell infusion, will be asked to roll-over to this LTFU protocol upon either premature discontinuation from, or completion of the prior parent treatment protocol.

  • Low-dose CT-based Method for Detection of Subclinical Anthracycline-induced Cardiotoxicity

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    Prospective single arm study to evaluate a low-dose CT-based protocol for early detection of myocardial dysfunction in 50 cancer patients undergoing anthracycline-based chemotherapy.

  • My Pathway: A Study Evaluating Herceptin/Perjeta, Tarceva, Zelboraf/Cotellic, Erivedge, Alecensa, and Tecentriq Treatment Targeted Against Certain Molecular Alterations in Participants With Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This multicenter, non-randomized, open-label study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of six treatment regimens in participants with advanced solid tumors for whom therapies that will convey clinical benefit are not available and/or are not suitable options per the treating physician's judgment.

  • This Study in Patients With Different Types of Cancer (Solid Tumours) Aims to Find a Safe Dose of Xentuzumab in Combination With Abemaciclib With or Without Hormonal Therapies. The Study Also Tests How Effective These Medicines Are in Patients With Lung and Breast Cancer.

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    For each dose finding cohorts (A, B, C and D): The primary objective of each dose finding cohort is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) / recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of xentuzumab in combination with abemaciclib with or without hormonal therapy (letrozole, anastrozole, fulvestrant). Dose limiting toxicities (DLT) will be assessed during the first treatment cycle to assess the MTD/RP2D. In case that no MTD is reached a RP2D dose will be determined taking into account safety data and other available information. This will be agreed with the Steering Committee. For each expansion cohorts (E, F, D1 and D2): The objectives of the expansion cohorts are to assess the anti-tumour activity of xentuzumab in combination with abemaciclib in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (cohort E). Tentatively a cohort F may be opened to assess the anti-tumour activity of the triplet combination xentuzumab / abemaciclib and fulvestrant in a single-arm expansion group of patients with locally advanced / metastatic hormone receptor positive (HR+) breast cancer who have progressed following prior aromatase inhibitor therapy and prior CDK4/6 inhibitor treatment. Cohort F will only be opened if indicated by emerging data from ongoing clinical trials. The primary objective of cohorts D1 and D2 is to assess the anti-tumour activity of the triplet combination xentuzumab, abemaciclib and fulvestrant in patients with locally advanced / metastatic HR+ breast cancer who have progressed on prior endocrine therapy. Cohort D1 will assess the anti-tumour activity for subjects with visceral metastasis and Cohort D2 for subjects with non-visceral metastasis.
