Clinical Trials Using Avelumab
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Avelumab. 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.
Biomarker-Driven Therapy and Immunotherapy in Screening Participants with Recurrent or Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (The Expanded Lung-MAP Screening Trial)
This expansion of the screening and multi-sub-study Lung-MAP trial is motivated by the changing landscape due to progress in the development of immunotherapies. The Lung-MAP trial was originally opened in June of 2014 for second-line treatment of participants with stage IV squamous lung cancer or squamous lung cancer that has come back (recurrent). The trial was amended to allow all participants with previously-treated stage IV or recurrent squamous lung cancer in 2015. The study is now expanding to allow participants with all types of previously-treated stage IV or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer. The type of cancer trait (biomarker) will determine to which sub-study, within this protocol, a participant will be assigned in order to compare new targeted cancer therapy designed to block the growth and spread of cancer, with the ultimate goal of being able to approve new targeted therapies in this setting. In addition, the protocol includes “non-match” sub-studies which will include all screened participants not eligible for any of the biomarker-driven sub-studies.

Intratumoral Microdosing of TAK-981 in Head and Neck Cancer
This is a multi-center, single arm, open-label, multi-agent, localized pharmacodynamic biomarker Phase 0 trial designed to study the biological effects within the tumor microenvironment of TAK-981 and TAK-981 combined with cetuximab or avelumab when administered intratumorally in microdose quantities via the CIVO device. CIVO stands for comparative in vivo oncology.
