Neoplasms clinical trials at UC Davis
4 research studies open to eligible people

  • A Study of Experimental Medicine Rivaroxaban in Preventing Blood Clots in Cancer Treatment

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that rivaroxaban is superior to placebo for reducing the risk of the primary composite outcome as defined by objectively confirmed symptomatic lower extremity proximal deep vein thrombosis (DVT), asymptomatic lower extremity proximal DVT, symptomatic lower extremity distal DVT, symptomatic upper extremity DVT, symptomatic non-fatal pulmonary embolism (PE), incidental PE, and venous thromboembolism (VTE)-related death in ambulatory adult participants with various cancer types receiving systemic cancer therapy who are at high risk of developing a VTE.

  • 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.

  • Experimental medicine safety and dosing to treat advanced solid tumors

    “Can experimental medicine change how genes work in cancer cells?”

    open to eligible people ages 18-120

    Background: - FdCyd (also called 5-fluoro-2'-deoxycytidine) and THU (also called tetrahydrouridine) are experimental cancer treatment drugs. FdCyd may change how genes work in cancer cells. THU helps keep FdCyd from being broken down by the body. FdCyd and THU have been given to people on other cancer treatment trials, usually by vein. Researchers want to give FdCyd and THU by mouth to see if they work against cancers that have not responded to earlier treatments. Objectives: - To test oral FdCyd and THU on advanced solid tumors that have not responded to earlier treatments. Eligibility: - Individuals at least 18 years of age who have advanced solid tumors that have not responded to standard treatments. Design: - Participants will be screened with a physical exam and medical history. Blood and urine samples will be collected. Imaging studies and tumor samples will used to study the cancer before treatment. - FdCyd and THU will be given in 21-day cycles. THU should be taken 30 minutes before taking FdCyd. - Participants will take FdCyd and THU by mouth, once a day, for 3 days at the beginning of the first and second weeks of each cycle (days 1 3 and 8 10). The drugs will not be taken during the entire third week of each cycle. - Treatment will be monitored with frequent blood tests and imaging studies. - Treatment will continue as long as the cancer is responding to the drugs and serious side effects do not develop....
