La Crosse, Wis., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn.
This study is being done to collect patient data and samples (blood, plasma and tissue) for future research on melanoma.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation and bevacizumab in treating patients with stage IV melanoma that cannot be removed by surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Giving paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation and bevacizumab many kill more tumor cells.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an investigational immunotherapy Nivolumab, when combined with Ipilimumab, is more effective than Nivolumab or Ipilimumab by itself, in delaying the return of cancer in patients who have had a complete surgical removal of stage IIIb/c/d or stage IV Melanoma.
This is a Phase 1b, open label, multi-center study of CMB305 (sequentially administered LV305 [a dendritic cell-targeting viral vector expressing the NY-ESO-1 gene] and G305 [NY-ESO-1 recombinant protein plus GLA-SE]) in patients with melanoma, sarcoma, ovarian cancer, or non-small cell lung cancer that express NY-ESO-1. CMB305 is a novel in vivo approach designed to stimulate the body's immune system to fight the spread and growth of cancer for patients whose tumors express the NY-ESO-1 protein. LV305 will be given in a prime-boost approach with G305 to induce a synergistic immunotherapeutic response.
Individuals who are affected with pancreas cancer and melanoma as well as those without either cancer who have been identified as 1st or 2nd degree relatives of family members with pancreas cancer and melanoma will be asked to participate. The participant will be asked to complete a survey about their health and family history of cancer and to give a blood sample for specific gene testing and storage for future research studies.The overall goal of this study is to understand the factors that increase susceptibility and expression of pancreatic cancer and melanoma in high risk families.
Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Jacksonville, Fla.
The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of combining pembrolizumab with epacadostat for treating patients who have melanoma that is metastatic or can not be removed by surgery.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and effectiveness of HBI-8000 when combined with a standard dose and regimen of nivolumab.
The purpose of this study is to characterize the safety, tolerability, effectiveness, biological activity, and drug/body interactions of IMCgp100, alone and in combination with durvalumab (MEDI4736) and/or tremelimumab for the treatment of patients who have advanced metastatic cutaneous melanoma.
Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn.
GRAIL is using deep sequencing of circulating cell-free nucleic acids (cfNAs) to develop assays to detect cancer early in blood. The purpose of this study is to collect biological samples from donors with a new diagnosis of cancer (blood and tumor tissue) and from donors who do not have a diagnosis of cancer (blood) in order to characterize the population heterogeneity in cancer and non-cancer subjects and to develop models for distinguishing cancer from non-cancer.
This project will investigate whether the analysis of nucleic acids circulating in the blood from tumors can allow real-time monitoring of treatment response to targeted therapy and immunotherapy for patients who have stage IV metastatic melanoma.
