Clinical trials help doctors find better ways to treat and prevent cancer. If you or a loved one has cancer, you might consider joining a clinical trial in order to try a new drug or treatment, or help doctors develop better treatments for the future. Learn more about clinical trials

Testing Cabozantinib in Patients With Advanced Pancreatic Neuroendocrine and Carcinoid Tumors

A021602 Randomized, double-blinded phase III study of cabozantinib versus placebo in patients with advanced neuroendocrine tumors after progression on prior therapy (CABINET)

This randomized phase III trial studies cabozantinib to see how well it works compared with placebo in treating patients with neuroendocrine or carcinoid tumors that have spread to other places in the body (advanced). Cabozantinib is a chemotherapy drug known as a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, and it targets specific tyrosine kinase receptors, that when blocked, may slow tumor growth.

Ulixertinib/Palbociclib in Patients With Advanced Pancreatic and Other Solid Tumors

LCCC1736 A Phase I Trial of Ulixertinib (BVD-523) in Combination with Palbociclib in Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors with Expansion Cohort in Previously Treated Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

This phase I study is designed to establish the safety, maximally tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of the ERK inhibitor ulixertinib (BVD-523) when combined with the CDK4/6 inhibitor palbociclib.

Tumor Subtypes in Subjects on FOLFIRINOX With Non-Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

LCCC1843 Impact of Neoadjuvant FOLFIRINOX on Tumor and Stromal Subtypes in Subjects with Non-Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

This is a research study to evaluate how the genetic makeup of Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PDAC) can affect the response to FDA-approved chemotherapy treatment, FOLFIRINOX, given before surgery to remove the tumor. Certain types of PDAC tumors can be surgically resected (removed). However, not all types of PDACs are resectable, especially if they are close to important structures like blood vessels or intestines. These types of PDACs are treated with chemotherapy such as FOLFIRINOX. Research studies showed that chemotherapy after surgical resection of PDAC tumors reduced the risk of the cancer returning.

A Study of RGX-202-01 as a Single Agent and as Combination Therapy in Patients With Advanced Gastrointestinal Malignancies

RGX-202-001 A Phase 1 Study of RGX-202-01, a Small Molecule Inhibitor of the Creatine Transporter, SLC6a8, as a Single Agent and as Combination Therapy in Patients with Advanced Gastrointestinal Malignancies with Select Expansion Cohorts

RGX-202-001 is a Phase 1, first-in-human, dose escalation and expansion study of RGX-202-01 as a single agent and in combination with FOLFIRI +/- bevacizumab. RGX-202-01 is a small molecule inhibitor of the creatine transporter SLC6a8, a novel metabolic target that drives gastrointestinal cancer progression.

During the dose escalation stage, multiple doses of orally administered RGX-202-01 with or without FOLFIRI +/- bevacizumab (single agent or combination therapy) will be evaluated in patients with advanced gastrointestinal tumors (i.e., locally advanced and unresectable, or metastatic) who have had PD on available standard systemic therapies or for which there are no standard systemic therapies of relevant clinical impact.

In the expansion stage of the study, additional patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) selected by expression of the creatine kinase B (CKB) biomarker will be treated at the MTD (or maximum tested dose if no MTD is identified, or dose below the MTD if there is evidence suggesting a more favorable risk/benefit profile). This stage will provide further characterization of the safety, efficacy, PK, and pharmacodynamics of RGX-202-01 in combination with FOLFIRI plus bevacizumab.

Efficacy and Safety Study of Tisotumab Vedotin for Patients With Solid Tumors (innovaTV 207)

SGNTV-001 Open Label Phase 2 Study of Tisotumab Vedotin for Locally Advanced or Metastatic Disease in Solid Tumors
This trial will study tisotumab vedotin to find out whether it is an effective treatment for certain solid tumors and what side effects (unwanted effects) may occur. There are three parts to this study. In Part A, the treatment will be given to participants every 3 weeks (3-week cycles). In Part B, participants will receive tisotumab vedotin on Days 1, 8, and 15 every 4-week cycle. In Part C, participants may receive tisotumab vedotin on Days 1 and 15 or Days 1, 8, and 15 on a 4-week cycle.

Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Pediatric Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas, or Histiocytic Disorders (The Pediatric MATCH Screening Trial)

APEC1621SC NCI-COG Pediatric MATCH (Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice)

This Pediatric MATCH screening and multi-sub-study phase II trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in pediatric patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, or histiocytic disorders that have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and/or for which no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong survival. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients’ tumor cells. Patients with genetic changes or abnormalities (mutations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor’s particular genetic mutation, and may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors or non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
