Neuroendocrine Tumor clinical trials at UC Cancer
8 research studies open to new patients

  • Basket Study of Entrectinib (RXDX-101) for the Treatment of Patients With Solid Tumors Harboring NTRK 1/2/3 (Trk A/B/C), ROS1, or ALK Gene Rearrangements (Fusions)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is an open-label, multicenter, global Phase 2 basket study of entrectinib (RXDX-101) for the treatment of patients with solid tumors that harbor an NTRK1/2/3, ROS1, or ALK gene fusion. Patients will be assigned to different baskets according to tumor type and gene fusion.

  • Cabozantinib S-malate in Treating Patients With Neuroendocrine Tumors Previously Treated With Everolimus That Are Locally Advanced, Metastatic, or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase III trial studies cabozantinib S-malate to see how well it works compared with placebo in treating patients with neuroendocrine tumors previously treated with everolimus that have spread to nearby tissues or lymph nodes, have spread to other places in the body, or cannot be removed by surgery. Cabozantinib S-malate is a chemotherapy drug known as a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, and it targets specific tyrosine kinase receptors, that when blocked, may slow tumor growth.

  • Dose-defining Study of Tirapazamine Combined With Embolization in Liver Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 20-80

    This phase 1 study is to determine the optimal dose and tolerability of a hypoxia-activating agent, tirapazamine, when it is combined with embolization in liver cancer. Liver cancer patients who are Child-Pugh score A, suitable for embolization with tumor no more than 4 nodules are eligible. Tirapazamine will be given by intra-arterial injection before embolization. Treatment effect is evaluated by MRI based on mRECIST criteria. Repeat treatment is necessary only if disease progression. Expansion cohorts are open for metastatic gastrointestinal cancer and neuroendocrine tumor.

  • Lu-177-DOTATATE (Lutathera) in Therapy of Inoperable Pheochromocytoma/ Paraganglioma

    open to eligible people ages 18-99

    Background: Pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma are rare tumors. They usually form inside and near the adrenal gland or in the neck region. Not all these tumors can be removed with surgery, and there are no good treatments if the disease has spread. Researchers think a new drug may be able to help. Objective: To learn the safety and tolerability of Lu-177-DOTATATE. Also, to see if it improves the length of time it takes for the cancer to return. Eligibility: Adults who have an inoperable tumor of the study cancer that can be detected with Ga-68-DOTATATE PET/CT imaging Design: Participants will be screened with a medical history, physical exam, and blood tests. Eligible participants will be admitted to the NIH Clinical Center. Participants will get the study drug in an intravenous infusion. They will get 4 doses, given about 8 weeks apart. Between 4 and 24 hours after each study drug dose, participants will have scans taken. They will lie on their back on a scanner table. Participants will have vital signs taken. They will give blood and urine samples. During the study, participants will have other scans taken. Some scans will use a radioactive tracer. Participants will complete quality of life questionnaires. Participants will be contacted by phone 1-3 days after they leave the Clinical Center. They will then be followed every 3 to 6 months for 3 years or until their disease gets worse.

  • Pembrolizumab and Liver-Directed Therapy in Treating Patients With Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors and Symptomatic and/or Progressive Liver Metastases

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This pilot phase II trial studies how well pembrolizumab and liver-directed therapy works in treating patients with well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors and symptomatic and/or progressive tumors that have spread to the liver. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Liver-directed therapies such as radiofrequency ablation, transarterial embolization, yttrium-90 microsphere radioembolization, and cryoablation may help to shrink tumors that are not being directly targeted. Giving pembrolizumab and liver-directed therapy may work better in treating patients with well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors and symptomatic and/or progressive tumors that have spread to the liver.

  • Randomized Embolization Trial for NeuroEndocrine Tumor Metastases To The Liver

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The primary aim of this trial is to estimate the duration of hepatic progression-free survival (HPFS) in participants treated with bland embolization (BE), transcatheter arterial Lipiodol chemoembolization (TACE), and embolization by drug-eluting beads (DEB). The primary hypothesis is that chemoembolization will be nearly twice as durable as bland embolization; thatis, the hazard ratio for HPFS will be 1.76 or better.

  • To Evaluate the Optimal Dose of 68Ga-OPS202 as a PET (Positron Emission Tomography) Imaging Agent in Subjects With Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumour (GEP-NET)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this clinical research is to define the optimal dose of 68Ga-OPS202 as a PET imaging agent to be used to detect and localize gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs). 68Ga-OPS202 is a radiolabelled imaging agent to be used in association with Positron-Emission-Tomography (PET). 68Ga-OPS202 is made of two main components: 1) OPS202, an antagonistic somatostatin analogue which binds to the somatostatin receptor (type 2) present on the surface of the tumor cells and 2) Gallium 68, a radioisotope that combined with OPS202 can be seen in the PET scanner.

  • Yttrium-90 DOTA-TOC Intra-arterial (IA) Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) for Neuroendocrine Tumor

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a prospective, pilot, single center, open-label study in patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumor. Eligible participants will undergo baseline assessments at enrollment. Study participants will receive a one-time administration of 90Y-DOTA-TOC via the hepatic artery. Participants in the correlative sub-study will receive 68Ga-DOTA-TOC concurrent with the 90Y-DOTA-TOC dose, and undergo additional imaging and assessment.
