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.

  • MAGE-A10ᶜ⁷⁹⁶T for Urothelial Cancer, Melanoma or Head and Neck Cancers

    This Phase 1 study is designed as a cell dose escalation trial in HLA-A*02:01 and HLA-A*02:06 subjects with MAGE-A10 positive urothelial, melanoma or head and neck tumors. The study will enroll subjects at least 18 years of age using a modified 3+3 cell dose escalation design, to evaluate dose limiting toxicities and determine the target cell dose range. Following the dose escalation phase, additional subjects will be enrolled at the target cell dose range to further characterize safety and the effects at this cell dose. The study will take the subject's T cells, which are a natural type of immune cell in the blood, and send them to a laboratory to be modified. The changed T cells used in this study will be the subject's own T cells that have been genetically changed with the aim of attacking and destroying cancer cells. When the MAGE-A10ᶜ⁷⁹⁶T cells are available, subjects will undergo lymphodepleting chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide and fludarabine, followed by T cell infusion. The purpose of this study is to test the safety of genetically changed T cells and find out what effects, if any, they have in subjects with urothelial, melanoma or head and neck cancer. Subjects will be seen frequently by the Study Physician after receiving their T cells for the next 6 months. After that, subjects will be seen every 3, 6, or 12 months according to the Schedule of Procedures. All subjects completing or withdrawing from the interventional portion of the study will enter a long term follow-up phase for observation of delayed adverse events and overall survival for 15 years post-infusion.

  • GSK3174998 Alone or With Pembrolizumab in Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors (ENGAGE-1)

    This is a first time in human (FTIH), open-label, non-randomized, multicenter study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics, and preliminary clinical activity of GSK3174998 administered intravenously to subjects with selected advanced or recurrent solid tumors. This dose-escalation study will assess the safety, activity of GSK3174998 as monotherapy (Part 1), in combination with pembrolizumab (Part 2), and potentially in combination with additional therapies. The study will be conducted in 2 parts, each part consisting of a dose-escalation phase followed by a cohort expansion phase. Part 1 will evaluate GSK3174998 monotherapy, while Part 2 will evaluate GSK3174998 in combination with pembrolizumab. GSK3174998 will first be evaluated as monotherapy in escalating doses. Once a dose of GSK3174998 has been identified that is both tolerable and demonstrates pharmacodynamic activity, enrollment of Part 2 may begin. In Part 2, escalating doses of GSK3174998 will be evaluated with fixed doses of pembrolizumab. The study will enroll up to approximately 264 subjects with different tumor types (approximately 144 subjects in Parts 1A and 2A [dose escalation]; approximately 120 subjects in Parts 1B and 2B [cohort expansion]). The maximum duration of treatment with GSK3174998 plus or minus pembrolizumab will be 2 years or 35 cycles, whichever comes first. The follow-up period for safety assessments will be a minimum of 3 months from the date of the last dose. The post-treatment follow-up period includes disease assessments every 12 weeks.
