Modular phase II study to link targeted therapy to patients with pathway activated tumors:Module 6 – BGJ398 for patients with tumors with FGFR genetic alterations

Researchers want to know if BGJ398 is safe and has beneficial effects in people who have different tumor types (cancer), and/or blood malignancies with a FGFR regulated pathway. This pathway is thought to play a role in tumor cell growth as well as in the growth of new blood vessels, which supply the tumor with nutrients and oxygen.

Modular phase II study to link targeted therapy to patients with pathway activated tumors: Module 7 – Ceritinib (LDK378) for patients whose tumors have aberrations in ALK or ROS1

The purpose of this clinical trial is to study if ceritinib is safe and has beneficial effects in people who have different tumor types (cancer), and/or blood malignancies with an ALK or ROS1 activated pathway.

A Phase 1b/2, Open-label Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of MEDI6469 in Combination with Immune Therapeutic Agents or Therapeutic Monoclonal Antibodies in Subjects with Selected Advanced Solid Tumors or Aggressive B-cell Lymphomas

The main purpose of this study is to determine the best dose of MEDI6469 that is safe and tolerable when given alone or in combination with tremelimumab, MEDI4736, or rituximab in subjects with either advanced solid tumors or diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).

Modular phase II study to link targeted therapy to patients with pathway activated tumors: Module 5 - LDE225 for patients with PTCH1 and SMO mutated tumors

Researchers want to know if LDE225 is safe and has beneficial effects in people who have different tumor types (cancer), and/or blood malignancies with a PTCH1 and/or SMO activated pathway. This pathway is thought to play a role in tumor cell growth as well as in the growth of new blood vessels, which supply the tumor with nutrients and oxygen.

Modular Phase II Study to Link Targeted Therapy to Patients with Pathway Activated Tumors: Module 3 - MEK162 for Patients with RAS/RAF/MEK Activated Tumors Local

The purpose of this clinical trial is to study if MEK162 is safe and has beneficial effects in people who have different tumor types (cancer), and/or blood malignancies with a RAS/RAF/MEK activated pathway. This pathway is thought to play a role in tumor cell growth as well as in the growth of new blood vessels, which supply the tumor with nutrients and oxygen.

Randomized Phase II Trial of Pet Scan-Directed Combined Modality Therapy in Esophageal Cancer

The purpose of this trial is to learn if we can improve the outcomes for patients with esophageal cancer by using PET/CT scans to determine whether or not a particular chemotherapy regimen is showing any effect on the tumor. We are trying to learn if PET/CT response can be used as a way to better direct therapy for esophageal tumors.

Modular Phase II Study to Link Targeted Therapy to Patients with Pathway Activated Tumors: Module 4 - LGX818 for Patients with BRAFC600 Mutated Tumors

Researchers want to know if LGX818 is safe and has beneficial effects in people who have different tumor types (cancer), and/or blood malignancies with a BRAFV600 activated pathway. This pathway is thought to play a role in tumor cell growth as well as in the growth of new blood vessels, which supply the tumor with nutrients and oxygen.

Modular Phase II Study to Link Targeted Therapy to Patients with Pathway Activated Tumors: Module 2 - Dovitinib for Patients with Tumor Pathway Activations Inhibited by Dovitinib Including Tumors with Mutations or Translocations of FGFR, PDGFR, VEGF, CKIT, FLT3, CSFR1, TRK and RET

Researchers want to know if dovitinib (TKI258) is safe and has beneficial effects in people who have different tumor types (cancer) and/or blood malignancies whose disease progressed after standard treatment.

An Open-Label, Dose Escalation, Phase 1, First-in-Human Study of TAK-659 in Adult Patients with Advanced Solid Tumor and Lymphoma Malignancies

Two of the main purposes of this study are to determine the side effects and risks of TAK-659 and the highest dose of TAK-659 that can be given to patients daily without causing side effects and risks that are too severe.

Status: Accepting New Patients
Principal Investigator: Petrich

A Phase IB Open-Label, Multi-Center, Dose Escalation and Expansion Study of Orally Administered MEK162 Plus BYl719 in Adult Patients with Selected Advanced Solid Tumors

The main purpose of this study is to see what effect, good and/or bad, MEK162 and BYL719 given together has on certain advanced solid tumors.

Phase II/III Study of Image-Guided Radiosurgery/SBRT for Localized Spine Metastasis

There are 2 parts to this study (phase II and phase III). The part of the study in which a participant is enrolled depends on the timing of starting in the study. The purpose of the phase II part of the study is to treat the cancer that has spread to a participant's spine, and is causing pain, with image-guided radiosurgery/SBRT. The purpose of phase III is to compare the effects, good and/or bad, of image-guided radiosurgery/SBRT to standard radiation therapy to find out which treatment provides the most rapid pain relief with the least side effects.

A Randomized Phase II Pilot Study Prospectively Evaluating Treatment for Patients Based on ERCC1 (Excision Repair Cross-Complementing 1) for Advanced/Metastatic Esophageal, Gastric or Gastroesophageal Junction (GEJ) Cancer

The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, a targeted therapy approach(specific treatment that is based on certain genes found in tumor cells) has on esophageal, gastric, or gastroesophageal junction cancer.

Status: Accepting New Patients
Principal Investigator: Benson III

A Phase II Trial of Bevacizumab in Patients with Recurrent Solid Tumor Brain Metastases Who Have Failed Whole Brain Radiation Therapy

The purpose of this study is to see what effect bevacizumab, the drug being tested, will have on brain disease from solid tumor cancers. This study will not evaluate the effect of bevacizumab on the systemic solid tumor cancer.
