Trials 51-75 of 126

  • Eribulin and Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients with Soft Tissue Sarcomas

    This phase II trial studies how well eribulin and pembrolizumab work in treating patients with soft tissue sarcomas such as liposarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, or undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as eribulin, 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 pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Chemotherapy treatment with eribulin may increase the response to immunotherapy with pembrolizumab in patients with soft tissue sarcomas.

  • Personalized Cancer Therapy in Treating Participants with Metastatic or Unresectable Cancers

    This pilot trial studies how well personalized cancer therapy works in treating participants with cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Personalized cancer therapy is the practice of making decisions about what kind of treatment participants should receive based on the genetic makeup of the tumor. Genes in your body encode certain characteristics such as height, eye and hair color. Researchers believe that abnormal genes in tumors may affect how individuals respond to cancer treatments. Collecting information about tests and treatments received will help researchers describe if patients respond better when their physicians choose to treat them according to the genetic makeup of their tumor.

  • History of the KSHV Inflammatory Cytokine Syndrome (KICS)

    Background: - KSHV inflammatory cytokine syndrome (KICS) is a newly recognized disease caused by Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). This virus can cause cancer. People with KICS can have severe symptoms. They include fever, weight loss, and fluid in the legs or abdomen. People with KICS may also be at risk of getting other cancers associated with KSHV. These cancers include Kaposi sarcoma and lymphoma. Because KICS is a newly identified disease, more information is needed on how the disease works and what can be done to treat it. Objectives: - To collect genetic and medical information from people with KSHV inflammatory cytokine syndrome. Eligibility: - Individuals at least 18 years of age who have Kaposi sarcoma herpes virus and symptoms that resemble those caused by KICS. Design: - Participants will have regular study visits. The schedule will be determined by the study researchers. - Participants will provide a complete medical history and have a full physical exam. Blood and urine samples will be collected as well. - People with KICS that requires treatment may get new experimental treatments. These treatments may include antiviral drugs and chemotherapy drugs, depending on the nature of the disease. - Participants will have imaging studies, such as chest x-rays and computed tomography scans, to study the tumors. - Bone marrow and lymph node biopsies may be done to collect tissue samples for study. - Participants who have Kaposi sarcoma will have photographs taken of their lesions.

  • Prexasertib, Irinotecan, and Temozolomide for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor or Rhabdomyosarcoma

    This phase I / II trial studies the best dose, the side effects, and how well prexasertib, irinotecan, and temozolomide work in treating patients with desmoplastic small cell tumor or rhabdomysosarcoma that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Prexasertib is a type of medication called a checkpoint kinase inhibitor. It works by stopping cancer cells from repairing damage to themselves and their deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) (genes), which may lead to death of cancer cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan and temozolomide, 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. The purpose of this study is to test whether prexasertib is a safe and effective treatment for patients with desmoplastic small round cell tumor or rhabdomyosarcoma when given with irinotecan and / or temozolomide.

  • Lymphodepletion with Adoptive Cell Therapy and High-Dose IL-2 for the Treatment of Metastatic Soft Tissue Sarcoma in Young Adult Patients

    This phase I trial studies the side effects of adoptively transferred tumor-specific T cells and high-dose aldesleukin (IL-2) and to see how well they work in treating patients with soft tissue sarcoma that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic). Fludarabine and cyclophosphamide are two types of chemotherapy drugs used in lymphodepletion. The purpose of lymphodepletion in this study is to temporarily reduce the number of normal lymphocytes circulating in the body before tumor infiltrating lymphocytes are infused. This is so that there will be more “space” for the lymphocytes that will be infused in the veins.Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes involve the use of special immune cells called T-cells. A T-cell is a type of lymphocyte, or white blood cell. Lymphocytes protect the body from viral infections, help other cells fight bacterial and fungal infections, produce antibodies, fight cancers, and coordinate the activities of other cells in the immune system. These special immune T-cells are taken from a sample of tumor tissue that is surgically removed, then multiplied in a laboratory, and infused back into the patient. IL-2 may help the body's response to treatment on the immune system.
