  • 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 an Experimental Treatment Combining Epacadostat, Intralesional SD101, and Radiotherapy in Patients With Lymphoma

    “If you still have cancer after receiving standard treatment, join us in testing a new therapy for cancer.”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Checkpoint blockade immunotherapy has revolutionized the management of a variety of advanced malignancies. Monoclonal antibodies targeting the PD-1 / PD-L1 interaction have received FDA approvals for non-small cell lung cancer, melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, renal cell carcinoma, hepatocellular, squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck, microsatellite instability high colorectal carcinoma, urothelial carcinoma, and classical Hodgkin's lymphoma. Despite the promising evidence for deep and durable responses with these agents, the majority of patients either fail to respond or develop resistance to treatment. Thus, there is interested in developing alternative immunotherapeutic strategies. The investigators hypothesize that a novel immunotherapeutic combination of radiotherapy (RT) with intralesional CpG and indolamine-2,3-dioxygenase blockade may offer significant clinical benefit to patients and proposing a microtrial testing this combination for advanced/refractory solid tumors and lymphoma.

  • A Study of Experimental Medicine MSB0011359C (M7824) in Metastatic or Locally Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The main purpose of this Phase I study is to test MSB0011359C (M7824) at different dose levels to see if it is safe and well tolerated when given once every 2 weeks. Phase I means the study drug has not previously been given to humans or has only been given to a limited number of people, although it has been extensively studied in animals. Based on this information, it is hoped to find out which dose could be best for the treatment of patients. There are two parts of this research study: a dose-escalation part and an expansion part. Dose escalation means that the first people taking part in the study will receive low doses of the study drug, and as more people take part, the additional participants will receive a higher dose. This is done to find the safest dose for the study drug. Expansion means that after the dose-escalation part of the study has looked at the safety and effectiveness of different doses, many more people will be invited to take part in the study and will receive the study drug at the safest dose. Additional purposes of the study are to find out whether the study drug has anti-cancer effects and how the study drug is processed by the body.

  • A Study of Pembrolizumab and Experimental Recombinant Interleukin-12 For Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of pembrolizumab and recombinant interleukin-12 in treating patients with solid tumors. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Recombinant interleukin-12 may kill tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor and by stimulating white blood cells to kill tumor cells. Giving pembrolizumab and recombinant interleukin-12 may work better in treating patients with solid tumors.

  • A Study of Various Doses of Experimental Medicines RRx-001 and Nivolumab For Malignant Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a dose escalation protocol to determine the feasibility of co-administration of RRx-001 and nivolumab. Immune surveillance is an endogenous mechanism to cause remission of neoplastic growth. Epigenetic agents like RRx-001 are associated not only with enhanced gene transcription and restored expression of silenced genes but also with increased expression of pro-inflammatory mediators, upregulation of PD-L1 on tumor cells and de-repression of antigens that promote immune recognition of tumors. It is hypothesized that RRx-001, will prime or sensitize to immune checkpoint therapy targeting PD-1 interaction with nivolumab.

  • 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.

  • 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.
