  • 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.

  • A Study Of Experimental PF-06647020 For Adult Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

    “This study will try to find the optimal dose of PF-06647020 in patients with ovarian cancer (OVCA) or non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    To assess the safety and tolerability at increasing dose levels of PF-06647020 in patients with advanced solid tumors in order to determine the maximum tolerated dose and select the recommended Phase 2 dose.

  • Collection of Tissue Samples for Cancer Research

    “Collection of samples (cancerous tissue, normal tissue, blood) and related medical information for use in cancer research”

    open to eligible people ages up to 110 years

    Background: -Patients who are being evaluated and/or treated at the NIH Clinical Center (pediatric and adult) and adult patients at participating sites will be entered onto this tissue procurement protocol for collection of tissue specimens. Objectives: - To obtain samples from adult and pediatric patients for research purposes from tests and procedures that are done as required by the primary research protocol(s) to which a patient is enrolled or as part of their standard-of-care treatment. - To obtain samples for research purposes from non-surgical procedures, such as percutaneous biopsies, performed for the sole purpose of obtaining tissue specimens or biological fluids for this protocol. Eligibility: -Adult patients (18 years of age and older) and pediatric patients (younger than 18 years of age) who are being evaluated for and/or treated for cancer at the NIH Clinical Center and adult patients from participating sites. Design: - This is a multicenter tissue procurement protocol with NCI as the coordinating center. - For adult patients: specimens for research purposes, as outlined in this protocol, will be obtained from tests and procedures that are done as required by the primary research protocols to which a patient is enrolled or as part of their standard-of-care treatment. Non-surgical procedures, such as percutaneous biopsies, may also be performed for the sole purpose of obtaining tissue specimens or biological fluids for this protocol. Tissues and biological fluids to be procured may include but are not limited to blood, serum, urine, tumor tissue, normal tissue, pleural fluid, CSF, saliva, bronchial alveolar lavage (BAL), circulating tumor cells, hair follicles, and bone marrow. These specimens will be stored with unique identifiers and used to perform only those research studies that are outlined in this protocol. - For pediatric patients: tumor biopsy/resection tissue used for pediatric preclinical model development will only be from tissue already being obtained as part of a procedure necessary for the patient s clinical care or as part of a primary research protocol; blood specimens will be collected as part of a blood collection already scheduled for the patient s clinical care or as part of the planned pre-procedure bloodwork; volumes collected will not exceed institutional research limits. - Given the risks associated with any invasive procedure, such as tumor biopsy, the procedure will be discussed in detail with the patients and their parents/guardian (as indicated), including the side effects, prior to obtaining a separate consent for each procedure. A separate consent will not be signed prior to obtaining samples by minimally invasive measures, such as venipuncture. - This study has three separate consent forms: one for adult patients at the NIH Clinical Center to opt to donate their samples for ongoing research on assay development and studies of molecular pathways; and two for the generation of preclinical models (adult and pediatric). Adult patients at the NIH and participating sites, and also pediatric patients (NIH Clinical Center only), can opt to donate samples to create preclinical models to study tumor biology and genetics, and to develop new therapies for cancer. - Patients may remain on study for the duration of their consent or completion of the planned procedure, whichever comes first.
