  • Testing Maintenance Therapy for Small Cell Lung Cancer in Patients with SLFN11 Positive Biomarker

    This phase II trial studies whether atezolizumab in combination with talazoparib works better than atezolizumab alone as maintenance therapy for patients with SLFN11-positive extensive-stage small cell lung cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. PARPs are proteins that help repair damage to DNA, the genetic material that serves as the body’s instruction book. Changes (mutations) in DNA can cause tumor cells to grow quickly and out of control, but PARP inhibitors like talazoparib may keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can’t repair themselves, and they stop growing. Giving atezolizumab in combination with talazoparib may help lower the chance of extensive-stage small cell lung cancer growing and spreading compared to atezolizumab alone.

  • Chemoradiation with or without Atezolizumab in Treating Patients with Limited Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer

    This phase II / III trial studies how well chemotherapy and radiation therapy (chemoradiation) with or without atezolizumab works in treating patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide, cisplatin, and carboplatin, 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. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving chemoradiation with or without atezolizumab may work better in treating patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer.

  • Testing Whether the Use of Brain Scans Alone Instead of Brain Scans plus Preventive Brain Radiation Affects Lifespan in Patients with Small Cell Lung Cancer

    This phase III trial studies magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) surveillance and prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) to see how well they work compared to MRI surveillance alone in treating patients with small cell lung cancer. MRI scans are used to monitor the possible spread of the cancer with an MRI machine over time. PCI is radiation therapy that is delivered to the brain in hopes of preventing spread of cancer into the brain. The use of brain MRI alone may reduce side effects of receiving PCI and prolong patients' lifespan. Monitoring with MRI scans alone (delaying radiation until the actual spread of the cancer) may be at least as good as the combination of PCI with MRI scans.

  • A Phase 2 Study of Cediranib in Combination with Olaparib in Advanced Solid Tumors

    This phase II trial studies cediranib maleate in combination with olaparib in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other parts of the body (advanced / metastatic) or cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable), including breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, and pancreatic cancer. Cediranib maleate and olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cediranib maleate may also block the flow of oxygen to the tumor, and may help make the tumor more sensitive to olaparib.

  • QUILT-3.055: A Study of Combination Immunotherapies in Patients Who Have Previously Received Treatment With Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors

    This is a Phase IIb, multicohort, open-label multicenter study of combination immunotherapies in patients who have previously received treatment with PD-1 / PD-L1 immune checkpoint inhibitors. All patients in Cohorts 1-4 will receive the combination treatment of PD-1 / PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitor plus N-803 for up to 17 cycles. Each cycle is six weeks in duration. Some patients who experience disease progression while on study in Cohorts 1-4 may roll over into Cohort 5 and receive combination therapy with a PD-1 / PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitor, N-803, and PD-L1 t-haNK cellular therapy for up to an additional 17 cycles. Each cycle is six weeks in duration. All patients will receive N-803 once every 3 weeks. Patients will also receive the same checkpoint inhibitor that they received during their previous therapy. Radiologic evaluation will occur at the end of each treatment cycle. Treatment will continue for up to 2 years, or until the patient experiences confirmed progressive disease or unacceptable toxicity, withdraws consent, or if the Investigator feels it is no longer in the patient's best interest to continue treatment. Patients will be followed for disease progression, post-therapies, and survival through 24 months past administration of the first dose of study drug.

  • A Study of RGX-104 in Patients With Advanced Solid Malignancies and Lymphoma

    Study RGX-104-001 is a Phase 1, first-in-human, dose escalation and expansion study of RGX-104, an oral small molecule targeting the liver X receptor (LXR), as a single agent and in combination with nivolumab, ipilimumab, docetaxel, or pembrolizumab plus carboplatin / pemetrexed. RGX-104 activates LXR, resulting in depletion of both myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) as well as tumor blood vessels. MDSCs block the ability of T-cells and other cells of the immune system from attacking tumors. During the dose escalation stage, multiple doses and schedules of orally administered RGX-104 with or without nivolumab, ipilimumab, docetaxel, or pembrolizumab plus carboplatin / pemetrexed (single agent or combination therapy) will be evaluated in patients with advanced solid tumors and lymphoma (i.e., locally advanced and unresectable, or metastatic) who have had progressive disease (PD) on available standard systemic therapies or for which there are no standard systemic therapies of relevant impact. Dose escalation in combination with pembrolizumab plus carboplatin / pemetrexed will be restricted to patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In the expansion stage of the study, additional patients with epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC), NSCLC, or small cell lung cancer (SCLC) / high-grade neuroendocrine tumors (HG-NET) will be treated at the MTD (or maximum tested dose if no MTD is identified, or dose below the MTD if there is evidence suggesting a more favorable risk / benefit profile). This stage will provide further characterization of the safety, efficacy, PK, and pharmacodynamics, including biomarkers of immunologic activity and LXR target activation, of RGX-104 as a single agent (EOC), in combination with docetaxel (SCLC / HG-NET), and and in combination with pembrolizumab plus carboplatin / pemetrexed (NSCLC).

  • Navitoclax and Vistusertib in Treating Patients with Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer and Other Solid Tumors

    This phase I / II trial studies the best dose and side effects of navitoclax and how well it works when given together with vistusertib in treating patients with small cell lung cancer and solid tumors that have come back (relapsed). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as navitoclax, 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. Vistusertib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving navitoclax and vistusertib may work better than navitoclax alone in treating patients with small cell lung cancer and solid tumors.

  • Olaparib and Low Dose Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients with Extensive Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of olaparib when given together with radiation therapy in treating patients with small cell lung cancer that has spread from the original site of growth to other sites. PARPs are proteins that help repair DNA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as olaparib, can keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can't repair themselves, and they may stop growing. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving olaparib and radiation therapy may work better in treating patients with extensive stage small cell lung cancer.

  • DS-3201b and Irinotecan in Treating Patients with Recurrent Small Cell Lung Cancer

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of DS-3201b when given together with irinotecan and to see how well they work in treating patients with small cell lung cancer that has come back after treatment (recurrent). DS-3201b may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. DS-3201b targets parts of the protein enhancers Zeste homolog 1 and 2 (EZH1 / 2), which are commonly found on small cell lung cancer cells. EZH1 / 2 act like a switch and cause tumor cells to shrink or die when turned off. DS-3201b targets both of these protein enhancers and turns them off to shrink or kill cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan, 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. Giving DS-3201b and irinotecan may work better than usual care such as topotecan, nivolumab, temozolomide, a combination of cyclophosphamide / doxorubicin / vincristine, or radiation therapy in treating patients with small cell lung cancer.

  • Randomized Trial of Topotecan With M6620, an ATR Kinase Inhibitor, in Small Cell Lung Cancers and Small Cell Cancers Outside of the Lungs

    This phase II trial studies how well M6620 works when given in combination with topotecan hydrochloride (topotecan) compared with topotecan alone in treating patients with small cell lung cancer that has come back (relapsed), or small cell cancer that arises from a site other than the lung (extrapulmonary). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as topotecan hydrochloride, work by damaging the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) in tumor cells, causing those cells to die and the tumor to shrink. However, some tumor cells can become less affected by chemotherapy because they have ways to repair the damaged DNA. The addition of M6620 could help topotecan hydrochloride shrink the cancer and prevent it from returning by blocking enzymes needed for DNA repair.

  • Nivolumab and Vorolanib in Treating Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Refractory Thoracic Tumors

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of vorolanib when given in combination with nivolumab in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer and thoracic tumors that aren't responding to treatment. 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. Vorolanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving nivolumab and vorolanib may work better in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer and thoracic tumors.

  • Nivolumab, Ipilimumab, and Plinabulin in Treating Patients with Recurrent Extensive Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of plinabulin when given together with nivolumab and ipilimumab and to see how well they work in treating patients with extensive stage small cell lung cancer that has come back. Plinabulin blocks tumor growth by targeting both new and existing blood vessels going to the tumor as well as killing tumor cells. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving plinabulin with nivolumab and ipilimumab may work better in treating patients with extensive stage small cell lung cancer compared to standard chemotherapy.
