  • Capecitabine and Radiation Therapy with or without Pembrolizumab in Treating Participants with Resectable or Borderline Resectable Pancreatic Cancer

    The phase Ib / II trial studies the side effects of capecitabine and radiation therapy with or without pembrolizumab in treating participants with pancreatic cancer that can be removed by surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as capecitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy uses high energy x rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. It is not known if giving capecitabine and radiation therapy with or without pembrolizumab will work better in treating participants with pancreatic cancer.

  • Study to Assess AFM24 in Advanced Solid Cancers

    AFM24-101 is a first in human Phase 1 / 2a open-label, non-randomized, multi-center, multiple ascending dose escalation / expansion study evaluating AFM24 as monotherapy in patients with advanced solid malignancies whose disease has progressed after treatment with previous anticancer therapies. There will be two parts to this study: a dose escalation phase (1) and a dose expansion phase (2a). The aim of the dose escalation phase is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and establish the recommended Phase 2a dose (RP2D). The dose escalation phase will be followed by the dose expansion phase once the MTD / RP2D of AFM24 monotherapy has been determined. The dose expansion phase of the study using the MTD / P2D is intended to collect preliminary evidence of efficacy and to further confirm the safety of AFM24 as a monotherapy. The expansion phase will have 4 arms based on tumor type of metastatic colorectal cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. AFM24 is a tetravalent bispecific (anti-human EGFR x anti-human CD16A) innate immune cell engaging recombinant antibody construct being developed to target EGFR-expressing solid tumors . and has been designed to specifically utilize the cytotoxic potential of the innate immune system, in particular natural killer cells and macrophages for the specific and efficient elimination of EGFR-positive cancer cells.

  • Liposomal Irinotecan, Fluorouracil, Leucovorin Calcium, and Rucaparib in Treating Patients with Metastatic Pancreatic, Colorectal, Gastroesophageal, or Biliary Cancer

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of liposomal irinotecan and rucaparib when given together with fluorouracil and leucovorin calcium and to see how well they work in treating patients with pancreatic, colorectal, gastroesophageal, or biliary cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as liposomal irinotecan, fluorouracil, and leucovorin calcium, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. PARPs are proteins that help repair DNA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as rucaparib, can keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can't repair themselves, and they may stop growing. Giving liposomal irinotecan and rucaparib together with fluorouracil and leucovorin calcium may work better in treating patients with pancreatic, colorectal, gastroesophageal, or biliary cancer.

  • Cyclophosphamide, Nivolumab, GVAX Pancreas Vaccine, and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for the Treatment of Borderline Resectable Pancreatic Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well cyclophosphamide, nivolumab, GVAX pancreas vaccine, and stereotactic body radiation therapy work in treating patients with pancreatic cancer that may be removed by surgery (borderline resectable). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. GVAX pancreas vaccine is made from other patients’ pancreatic cancer cells. The cells were changed in a laboratory to make a protein called GM-CSF. GM-CSF helps to activate a person’s own immune system cells to recognize and attack cancer cells. 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. It is not yet known if cyclophosphamide, nivolumab, GVAX pancreas vaccine, and stereotactic body radiation therapy may work better than giving either one alone in treating patients with pancreatic cancer.
