  • [18F]-AraG for the Detection of T-Cell Activation in Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Patients Undergoing PD-1/PD-L1-Directed Therapy

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This trial studies how well [18F]-AraG works in detecting T-cell activation in patients with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced), who are undergoing PD-1/PD-L1-directed therapy. [18F]-AraG is a "radiotracer" which attaches to immune cells directed at the cancer and shines a light that can be seen using a special camera, called a "positron emission tomography" or "PET" scanner. [18F]-AraG may improve the ability to detect a response of the cancer in the body to immunotherapy.

  • A Study of an Experimental Combination of Injections and Radiation Therapy for Advanced Stage Solid Tumors

    “This study is being done to test a new therapy for advanced stage solid tumor cancers involving a combination of radiation and injections.”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a phase I/II study that will evaluate the safety and toxicity of this combinatorial approach. Eligible patients >18 years of age with histologically proven metastatic NSCLC, melanoma, RCC, or HNSCC who have failed PD-1 / PD-L1 checkpoint blockade therapy will be enrolled. Patients must have a candidate treatment lesion (subcutaneous, nodal, or visceral) accessible and safe for radiotherapy and serial intralesional injections as specified by the protocol. They must also have at least one target lesion (distinct from treatment lesion and outside of treatment lesion radiation field) evaluable for response by RECIST. This study will consist of a phase I dose escalation using a standard 3+3 design to determine safety and MTD of intralesional IL-2 which will be dose escalated in conjunction with standard fixed doses of RT and Pembrolizumab. At the MTD there will be a phase II dose expansion which will incorporate a simon-two stage design to assess efficacy and safety. Patients will receive pembrolizumab and intralesional IL-2 in combination with hypofractionated radiotherapy.

  • A Study of Chemoradiation With or Without Experimental Atezolizumab For Limited Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II/III trial studies how well chemotherapy and radiation therapy (chemoradiation) with or without atezolizumab works in treating patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide, cisplatin, and carboplatin, 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. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. 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. Giving chemoradiation with or without atezolizumab may work better in treating patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer.

  • A Study of Chemotherapy with Experimental Crizotinib vs. Placebo For Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer After Surgery

    “Can targeted chemotherapy with Crizotinib, stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the a protein from working?”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well crizotinib works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been removed by surgery and has a mutation in a protein called anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Mutations, or changes, in ALK can make it very active and important for tumor cell growth and progression. Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the ALK protein from working. Crizotinib may be an effective treatment for patients with non-small cell lung cancer and an ALK fusion mutation.

  • A Study of Experimental Immunotherapy With Autologous (your own) T-cells for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Adoptive T-cell therapy (ACT) is a therapeutic approach that uses T lymphocytes of participants with cancer, obtained by leukapheresis with the aim of generating an anti-tumor T-cell immune response. New York esophageal squamous cell carcinoma 1 (NY-ESO-1) and cancer testis antigen 2 (LAGE-1a) antigens are tumor-associated proteins that have been found in several tumor types. Clinical trials using ACT with T-cells directed against NY-ESO-1/LAGE-1a have shown objective responses in participants with cancer. Pembrolizumab is a monoclonal antibody that acts specifically on tumor targeting T-cells and increases T-cell anti-tumor function. Pembrolizumab will be used in combination with NY-ESO-1/LAGE-1a T Cell Receptors (TCR) engineered participant T-cells (GSK3377794) to potentially further improve therapy for participants. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of autologous genetically modified T-cells (GSK3377794) in human leukocyte antigen (HLA) positive participants with NY-ES0-1/ LAGE-1a positive advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) alone (Arm A) or GSK3377794 in combination with pembrolizumab in participants with NSCLC with wildtype epidermal growth factor receptor (WT EGFR) and WT anaplastic lymphoma kinase/ c-ros oncogene 1 (ALK/ROS1) (Arm B) and participants with NSCLC with EGFR or ALK/ROS1 aberration (Arm C). This study consists of screening phase, Leukapheresis/ GSK3377794 manufacture, lymphodepletion/treatment phase and follow-up. Participants will receive GSK3377794 as monotherapy (Arm A); or as a combination therapy with pembrolizumab (Arm B), and participants in Arm C will receive the same treatment as participants in the Arm B. Approximately 54 participants will be enrolled into the study.

  • EGFR Inhibitor AZD9291 (Osimertinib) and Monoclonal antibodies (Necitumumab) side effects and best dosing for Lung Cancer

    “This study looks at experimental immunotherapy combination: necitumumab and osimertinib in treating Stage IV or Recurrent lung cancer”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of necitumumab when given together with osimertinib in treating patients with EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer that is stage IV or has come back (recurrent) and who have progressed on a previous EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as necitumumab, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Osimertinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving necitumumab with osimertinib may be a better treatment for EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer.

  • Experimental medicine in Treating Patients With HIV-Associated Hodgkin Lymphoma

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of nivolumab when given with ipilimumab in treating patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) associated classical Hodgkin lymphoma that has returned after a period of improvement or does not respond to treatment, or solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab and nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Ipilimumab is an antibody that acts against a molecule called cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4 (CTLA-4). CTLA-4 controls a part of your immune system by shutting it down. Nivolumab is a type of antibody that is specific for human programmed cell death 1 (PD-1), a protein that is responsible for destruction of immune cells. Giving ipilimumab with nivolumab may work better in treating patients with HIV associated classical Hodgkin lymphoma or solid tumors compared to ipilimumab with nivolumab alone.

  • Experimental Pembrolizumab Alone or Combined With Pemetrexed and Carboplatin For Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase III trial studies whether pembrolizumab alone as a first-line treatment, followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab after disease progression is superior to induction with pembrolizumab, pemetrexed and carboplatin followed by pembrolizumab and pemetrexed maintenance in treating patients with stage IV non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, 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 pemetrexed and carboplatin, 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. It is not yet known whether giving first-line pembrolizumab followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab works better in treating patients with non-squamous non-small cell cancer.

  • Experimental Radiotracer Imaging Study for Cancer Patients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This clinical trial studies the side effects of 18F-alphavbeta6-binding-peptide and how well it works in imaging patients with primary or cancer that has spread to the breast, colorectal, lung, or pancreatic. Radiotracers, such as 18F-alphavbeta6-binding-peptide, may improve the ability to locate cancer in the body.

    Sacramento, California

  • Experimental Topotecan and M6620 for Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer or Extrapulmonary Small Cell Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies how well M6620 works when given in combination with topotecan hydrochloride (topotecan) compared with topotecan alone in treating patients with small cell lung cancer that has come back (relapsed), or small cell cancer that arises from a site other than the lung (extrapulmonary). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as topotecan hydrochloride, work by damaging the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) in tumor cells, causing those cells to die and the tumor to shrink. However, some tumor cells can become less affected by chemotherapy because they have ways to repair the damaged DNA. The addition of M6620 could help topotecan hydrochloride shrink the cancer and prevent it from returning by blocking enzymes needed for DNA repair.

  • Targeted therapy directed by genetic testing in treating patients with advanced solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma

    “Will identifying genetic abnormalities in tumor cells help doctors plan better, more personalized treatment for cancer patients?”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.
