  • A Study of TAK-676 and TAK-676 in Combination With Pembrolizumab in Adults With Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    It is hoped that TAK-676, when given on its own or given with pembrolizumab will eventually help people with advanced or metastatic solid tumors. The main aim of this study is to check if people with advanced solid tumors have side effects from TAK-676, and to check how much TAK-676 they can receive without getting side effects from it. At the first visit, the study doctor will check who can take part. Participants will receive TAK-676 slowly through a vein (infusion). This will happen on 3 different days during a 21-day cycle. Different small groups of participants will receive lower to higher doses of TAK-676. Some participants will receive TAK-676 by itself and others will receive TAK-676 with pembrolizumab. Participants will stay in the clinic or hospital for 24 hours after each infusion of TAK-676 in the first cycle of treatment. Sometimes the study doctor will carry out a physical exam before the participant goes home. Participants will be given an emergency card to carry with them at all times. The card has information about the study including contact details and a 24-hour emergency number. Some participants, who receive TAK-676 and are willing and able, will be asked to wear a removable patch on their chest to record vital signs for 21 days in the first cycle of treatment. Also, in the first cycle of treatment, participants will record their oral temperatures twice a day for 21 days in a diary when they go home after each infusion. Throughout treatment, the clinic will regularly telephone the participants to check on their health.

  • Efficacy and Safety of Olaparib (MK-7339) in Participants With Previously Treated, Homologous Recombination Repair Mutation (HRRm) or Homologous Recombination Deficiency (HRD) Positive Advanced Cancer (MK-7339-002 / LYNK-002)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of olaparib (MK-7339) monotherapy in participants with multiple types of advanced cancer (unresectable and/or metastatic) that: 1) have progressed or been intolerant to standard of care therapy; and 2) are positive for homologous recombination repair mutation (HRRm) or homologous recombination deficiency (HRD).

  • Experimental PET Imaging Scans Before Cancer Surgery to Study the Amount of PET Tracer Accumulated in Normal and Cancer Tissues

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies a new imaging technique called FAPi PET/CT to determine where and to which degree the FAPI tracer (68Ga-FAPi-46) accumulate in normal and cancer tissues in patients with non-prostate cancer. The research team also want to know whether what they see on PET/CT images represents the tumor tissue being excised from the patient's body. The research team is also interested to investigate another new imaging technique called PSMA PET/CT. Participants will be invited to undergo a second PET/CT scan, with the PSMA tracer (68Ga-PSMA-11). This is not required but just an option for volunteer patients. Patients can decide to have only the FAPI PET/CT scan. The PET/CT scanner combines the PET and the CT scanners into a single device. This device combines the anatomic (body structure) information provided by the CT scan with the metabolic information obtained from the PET scan. PET is an established imaging technique that utilizes small amounts of radioactivity attached to very minimal amounts of, in the case of this research, 68Ga-PSMA-11 and 68Ga-FAPi. Because some cancers take up 68Ga-PSMA-11 and/or 68Ga-FAPi it can be seen with PET. CT utilizes x-rays that traverse the body from the outside. CT images provide an exact outline of organs where it occurs in patient's body. FAP stands for Fibroblast Activation Protein. FAP is produced by cells that surround tumors. The function of FAP is not well understood but imaging studies have shown that FAP can be detected with FAPI PET/CT. Imaging FAP with FAPI PET/CT may in the future provide additional information about various cancers. PSMA stands for Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen. This name is incorrect as PSMA is also found in many other cancers. The function of PSMA is not well understood but imaging studies have shown that PSMA can be detected with PET in many non-prostate cancers. Imaging FAP with PET/CT may in the future provide additional information about various cancers.

  • Larotrectinib in Treating Patients With Previously Untreated TRK Fusion Solid Tumors and TRK Fusion Relapsed Acute Leukemia

    open to eligible people ages up to 30 years

    This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well larotrectinib works in treating patients with previously untreated TRK fusion solid tumors and TRK fusion acute leukemia that has come back. Larotrectinib may stop the growth of cancer cells with TRK fusions by blocking the TRK enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Nanoparticle Albumin-Bound Rapamycin, Temozolomide, and Irinotecan Hydrochloride in Treating Pediatric Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 12 months to 21 years

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of nanoparticle albumin-bound rapamycin when given together with temozolomide and irinotecan hydrochloride in treating pediatric patients with solid tumors that have come back after a period of time during which the tumor could not be detected or has not responded to treatment. Nanoparticle albumin-bound rapamycin may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Chemotherapy drugs, such as temozolomide and irinotecan hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving nanoparticle albumin-bound rapamycin, temozolomide, and irinotecan hydrochloride may cause the cancer to stop growing or shrink for a period of time, and may lessen the symptoms that are caused by the cancer.
