  • A Study of RGX-104 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, ipilimumab, docetaxel, or pembrolizumab plus carboplatin/pemetrexed. 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, ipilimumab, docetaxel, or pembrolizumab plus carboplatin/pemetrexed (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. Dose escalation in combination with pembrolizumab plus carboplatin/pemetrexed will be restricted to patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In the expansion stage of the study, additional patients with epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC), NSCLC, or small cell lung cancer (SCLC)/high-grade neuroendocrine tumors (HG-NET) 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), in combination with docetaxel (SCLC/HG-NET), and and in combination with pembrolizumab plus carboplatin/pemetrexed (NSCLC).

  • AcceleRET Lung Study of Pralsetinib for 1L RET Fusion-positive, Metastatic NSCLC

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is an international, randomized, open-label, Phase 3 study designed to evaluate whether the potent and selective RET inhibitor, pralsetinib, improves outcome when compared to a platinum chemotherapy-based regimen chosen by the Investigator from a list of standard of care treatments, as measured primarily by progression free survival (PFS), for patients with RET fusion-positive metastatic NSCLC who have not previously received systemic anticancer therapy for metastatic disease. Patients who have centrally confirmed progressive disease on the control arm have the option to crossover to pralsetinib.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Study of TSR-033 With an Anti-programmed Cell Death-1 Receptor (PD-1) in Participants With Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a multicenter, open-label, first-in-human Phase 1 study evaluating the anti-lymphocyte activation gene-3 (LAG-3) antibody TSR-033 alone, in combination with the anti-PD-1 antibody dostarlimab, and in combination with dostarlimab, modified folinic acid (FOL)/leucovorin, 5-fluorouracil and oxaliplatin (OX) (mFOLFOX6) or FOL/leucovorin, 5-fluorouracil and irinotecan (IRI) (FOLFIRI), and bevacizumab in participants with advanced solid tumors in a broad range of solid tumors. Participants with disease types selected for evaluation in this study are expected to derive clinical benefit with addition of an anti-PD-1. The study will be conducted in two parts with Part 1 consisting of dose escalation to determine the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of TSR-033 as a single agent (Part 1a) and in combination with dostarlimab (Part 1c). RP2D decisions will be based on the occurrence of dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs), pharmacokinetics (PK), as well as pharmacodynamics (PDy) data. Part 2A of the study will investigate the anti-tumor activity of TSR-033 and dostarlimab in combination in participants with advanced or metastatic microsatellite stable colorectal cancer (MSS-CRC). Part 2B of the study will investigate the safety and anti-tumor activity of TSR-033 and dostarlimab in combination with chemotherapy (Cohort B1: mFOLFOX6 and Cohort B2: FOLFIRI) and bevacizumab in participants with advanced or metastatic MSS-CRC.

  • Study of TSR-042, an Anti-programmed Cell Death-1 Receptor (PD-1) Monoclonal Antibody, in Participants With Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a multi-center, open-label, first-in-human Phase 1 study evaluating the anti-programmed death receptor 1 (anti-PD-1) antibody dostarlimab (also known as TSR-042) n participants with advanced solid tumors who have limited available treatment options. The study will be conducted in 2 parts with Part 1 consisting of safety evaluation, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics (PDy) of escalating doses of dostarlimab. Dose escalation will be based on ascending weight-based dose levels (DLs) of dostarlimab and will continue until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is reached or may be stopped at any dose level up to the highest dose of 20 milligrams per kilograms (mg/kg) based on emerging safety and PK/PDy data. Part 2 will be conducted in two subparts, Part 2A (fixed-dose safety evaluation cohorts) and Part 2B (expansion cohorts). Part 2A of the study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of dostarlimab at fixed doses of 500 mg administered every 3 weeks (Q3W) and 1000 mg administered every 6 weeks (Q6W). Part 2B of the study will examine the safety and clinical activity of dostarlimab in cohorts of participants with specific types of advanced solid tumors.
