HER2 clinical trials at UC Davis
6 research studies open to eligible people

  • A Study of Experimental Medicine Pyrotinib For HER2-Positive Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Part 1: to assess the safety and tolerability of pyrotinib and to define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of pyrotinib in patients with Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 (HER2)-positive advanced solid tumors (metastatic breast cancer, gastric cancer, or other solid tumors that have no targeted agent as standard of care). Part 2: to estimate the overall response rate (ORR) for patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer (mBC) and HER2 mutant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated at the RP2D (or MTD).

  • A Study of the Experimental Combination of Cediranib and Olaparib in Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies cediranib maleate in combination with olaparib in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other parts of the body or cannot be removed by surgery, including breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, and pancreatic cancer. Cediranib maleate and olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cediranib maleate may also block the flow of oxygen to the tumor, and may help make the tumor more sensitive to olaparib.

  • Cisplatin With/Without Veliparib in Treating Patients With Stage IV Triple-Negative and/or BRCA Mutation-Associated Breast Cancer

    “Chemotherapy with/without targeted chemotherapy in treatment of breast cancer”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well cisplatin works with or without veliparib in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer and/or BRCA mutation-associated breast cancer that has come back or has or has not spread to the brain. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, 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. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known if cisplatin is more effective with or without veliparib in treating patients with triple-negative and/or BRCA mutation-associated breast cancer.

  • Experimental Treatment With "Carvedilol" to Avoid Heart Problems in Patients With HER-2-Positive Breast Cancer That Has Spread

    “This study will test whether carvedilol can reduce heart problems during your cancer treatment.”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase III trial studies how well carvedilol works in preventing cardiac toxicity in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER)-2-positive breast cancer that has spread to other places in the body. A beta-blocker, such as carvedilol, is used to treat heart failure and high blood pressure, and it may prevent the heart from side effects of chemotherapy.

  • Patients With Triple Negative Breast Cancer: Chemotherapy Before Surgery With an Experimental Immune System Therapy Cancer Drug

    “The purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of the study drug Atezolizumab.”

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies how well carboplatin and paclitaxel with or without atezolizumab before surgery works in treating patients with newly diagnosed, stage II-III triple negative breast cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, 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 carboplatin and paclitaxel with or without atezolizumab before surgery may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of normal tissue that needs to be removed.

  • Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients With Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well pembrolizumab works in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
