GENITOURINARY CANCER

20.1169: Phase 3, Randomized, Open-label Study to Evaluate PerioperativeEnfortumab Vedotin Plus Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) Versus Neoadjuvant Gemcitabine and Cisplatin in Cisplatin-eligible Participants with Muscle-invasive Bladder Cancer (KEYNOTE-B15 / EV-304)

Principal Investigator: Rohit Kumar MD

Phase:  III

Description:  The trial is being done to: See if EV + pembro before and after surgery is more effective than Gemcitabine + Cisplatin before surgery. This will be measured by tissue samples that are taken during surgery and images taken at different times. Test the safety of EV + pembro before + after surgery. See how well your body handles EV + pembro before and after surgery. See if participants who get EV + pembro before and after surgery live longer compared to those who get Gemcitabine + Cisplatin before surgery. Look at the participant’s quality of life.

20.0130:  Phase III Randomized Trial of Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy with or without Atezolizumab in Localized Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer.

Principal Investigator: Vikas Singh, MD

Phase:  III

Description:  This phase III trial studies how well chemotherapy and radiation therapy work with or without atezolizumab in treating patients with localized muscle invasive bladder cancer. Radiation therapy uses high energy rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, cisplatin, fluorouracil and mitomycin-C, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. 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 atezolizumab with radiation therapy and chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with localized muscle invasive bladder cancer compared to radiation therapy and chemotherapy without atezolizumab.

19.0698:  Phase 1/2 Dose-Escalation and Expansion Study of FLX475 Alone and in Combination with Pembrolizumab in Advanced Cancer

Principal Investigator: Rebecca Redman, M.D.

Phase:  I

Description: This clinical trial is a Phase 1/2, open-label, sequential-group, dose-escalation and cohort expansion study to determine the safety and preliminary anti-tumor activity of FLX475 as monotherapy and in combination with pembrolizumab. The study will be conducted in two parts, a dose-escalation phase (Part 1) and a cohort expansion phase (Part 2). In Part 1 of the study, subjects will be enrolled in sequential cohorts treated with successively higher doses of FLX475 as monotherapy or in combination with pembrolizumab. In Part 2 of the study, subjects will be initially enrolled in Stage 1 of parallel expansion cohorts of FLX475 as monotherapy or in combination with pembrolizumab.

19.0721:  Phase III Randomized Trial of Standard Systemic Therapy (SST) Versus Standard Systemic Therapy Plus Definitive Treatment (Surgery or Radiation) of the Primary Tumor in Metastatic Prostate Cancer

Principal Investigator: Scott Silva, MD, PhD

Phase:  III

Description:  This phase III trial studies how well standard systemic therapy with or without definitive treatment (prostate removal surgery or radiation therapy) works in treating participants with prostate cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Addition of prostate removal surgery or radiation therapy to standard systemic therapy for prostate cancer may lower the chance of the cancer growing or spreading.

17.1155: A Phase 1 Study of RGX-104, a Small Molecule LXR Agonist, in Patients With Advanced Solid Malignancies and Lymphoma With an Expansion in Select Malignancies     

Principal Investigator: Rebecca Redman, M.D.     

Description: Study RGX-104-001 is a Phase 1, first-in-human, dose escalation and expansion study of RGX-104, an oral small molecule targeting the liver X receptor (LXR). RGX-104 activates LXR, resulting in depletion of both myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) as well as tumor blood vessels. MDSCs block the ability of T-cells and other cells of the immune system from attacking tumors.     

Phase:  I

16.0568 - Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice (MATCH).

Principal Investigator: Vivek Sharma, M.D., F.A.C.P.

Description: This phase II 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 or lymphomas.

 08.0388 - Protocol for the Cancer Database and Specimen Repository (CDSR) at the Brown Cancer Center (Previous Lung Repository).

Principal Investigator: Rebecca Redman, M.D.

Description: The mission of the Cancer Database and Specimen Repository (CDSR) is to collect clinical information and samples of human specimens from cancer patients and from control patients for research, and to distribute specimens to researchers for the advancement of science.

 

20.0685:  NCI COVID-19 in Cancer Patients Study (N-CCaPS): A Longitudinal Natural History Study

Principal Investigator: Rebecca Redman, MD

Description:  This study collects blood samples, medical information, and medical images from patients who are being treated for cancer and have a positive test for SARS CoV-2, the new coronavirus that causes the disease called COVID-19. Collecting blood samples, medical information, and medical images may help researchers determine how COVID-19 affects the outcomes of patients undergoing cancer treatment and how having cancer affects COVID-19.
