Treatment Clinical Trials for Melanoma

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for melanoma treatment. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

Trials 26-50 of 260

  • Pembrolizumab and Ziv-aflibercept in Treating Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of ziv-aflibercept when given together with pembrolizumab in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body (advanced). Ziv-afibercept works by decreasing blood and nutrient supply to the tumor, which may result in shrinking the tumor. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving ziv-aflibercept together with pembrolizumab may be a better treatment for patients with advanced solid tumors.

  • Safety, Tolerability, Immunogenicity, and Antitumor Activity of GEN-009 Adjuvanted Vaccine

    In this study, Genocea is evaluating an investigational, personalized adjuvanted vaccine, GEN-009, that is being developed for the treatment of patients with solid tumors. A proprietary tool developed by Genocea, called ATLAS™ (Antigen Lead Acquisition System) will be used to identify neoantigens in each patient's tumor that are recognized by their CD4 and / or CD8 T cells. ATLAS-identified neoantigens will then be incorporated into a patient's personalized vaccine in the form of synthetic long peptides (SLPs).

  • Proton Beam or Photon-Based Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients with Salivary Gland Cancer, Skin Cancer, or Melanoma

    This randomized phase II trial studies the side effects of proton beam or photon-based intensity-modulated radiation therapy in treating patients with salivary gland cancer, skin cancer, or melanoma. Proton beam radiation therapy uses tiny charged particles to deliver radiation directly to the tumor and may cause less damage to normal tissue. Intensity-modulated or photon beam radiation therapy uses high-energy x-ray beams shaped to treat the tumor and may also cause less damage to normal tissue. It is not yet known if proton beam radiation therapy is more effective than photon-based intensity-modulated radiation therapy in treating patients with salivary gland cancer, skin cancer, or melanoma.

  • First-in-human Study of Oral TP-0903 (a Novel Inhibitor of AXL Kinase) in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

    TP-0903 is a novel oral inhibitor that targets AXL kinase and reverses the mesenchymal phenotype associated with advanced cancers. Preclinical studies have shown promising antitumor activity of TP-0903 as a single agent against a variety of tumor types in both in vitro and in vivo studies. This first-in-human Phase 1a study is conducted to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of TP-0903 administered orally to patients with advanced solid tumors and to identify the safety profile and Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D) of TP-0903. Once the MTD has been established, additional patients with specific tumor types (advanced solid tumors that have progressed after achieving a best documented response of at least stable disease (ie, SD, PR, or CR documented per iRECIST following at least 2 cycles (8 weeks) of immunotherapy, EGFR+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer [NSCLC] and have demonstrated recent progression following a best documented response of at least stable disease (ie, SD, PR, or CR documented per RECIST v1.1 on ≤2 lines of oral TKIs (Prior chemotherapy ± immunotherapy is allowed as long as the patient is clearly demonstrating current progression on an EGFR TKI.), BRAF-, KRAS-, or NRAS-mutated Colorectal Carcinoma [CRC] for whom there is no standard therapy remaining, persistent / recurrent Ovarian Cancer who would be platinum refractory / resistant and have had any number of lines of prior therapy, and BRAF-mutated Melanoma that has not responded to immunotherapy or a combination BRAF / MEK inhibitor) will be enrolled at the MTD in the Phase 1b study. Data collected from patients enrolled in each of these additional cohorts will be used for to confirm safety, explore potential biomarkers, and evaluate potential signals of activity when TP-0903 is administered to specific groups of heavily pretreated patients or given in combination with immunotherapy or a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). The study will investigate the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and preliminary anti-tumor activity profiles.

Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may block tumor or cancer growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. It may also help the immune system kill cancer cells.

  • Phase 1b / 2 Study of the Combination of IMCgp100 With Durvalumab and / or Tremelimumab in Cutaneous Melanoma

    This study is a Phase Ib / II, multi-center, open-label study of IMCgp100 as a single agent and in combination with durvalumab (MEDI4736) and / or tremelimumab in metastatic cutaneous melanoma. The purpose of this study is to characterize the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics, and anti-tumor activity of IMCgp100 in combination with durvalumab (MEDI4736, programmed death-ligand 1 [PD-L1] inhibitor), tremelimumab (CLTA-4 inhibitor), and the combination of durvalumab with tremelimumab compared to single-agent IMCgp100 alone. The study will enroll patients who have metastatic melanoma that is refractory to treatment with an anti-PD-1 inhibitor in the metastatic setting. Recent biologic evidence indicates that optimal responses to programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) directed therapy require the presence of CD8+ T cells in the tumor microenvironment and thus therapies such as IMCgp100 that recruit these effector cells to the tumor may overcome pre-existing resistance to checkpoint blockade. This emerging biology of checkpoint inhibitor resistance suggests the combination of IMCgp100 with checkpoint inhibition may have enhanced activity in patients with pre-existing resistance.

Stereotactic body radiation therapy uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method can kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue.
