Trials 26-50 of 73

  • Combination Chemotherapy and Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients with Previously Untreated Localized Gastric or Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer

    This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well combination chemotherapy and pembrolizumab work in treating patients with previously untreated cancer limited to the gastric or gastroesophageal junction. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin, capecitabine, and epirubicin hydrochloride, 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. Giving combination chemotherapy and pembrolizumab may work better in treating patients with gastric or gastroesophageal junction cancer.

  • Tucatinib, Trastuzumab, and Capecitabine in Treating Patients with HER2 Positive Breast Cancer with Leptomeningeal Metastases

    This phase II trial studies how well tucatinib, trastuzumab, and capecitabine work in treating patients with HER2 positive breast cancer that has spread to the leptomeninges (leptomeningeal metastases). Tucatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Trastuzumab is a form of “targeted therapy” because it works by attaching itself to specific molecules (receptors) on the surface of cancer cells, known as HER2 receptors. When trastuzumab attaches to HER2 receptors, the signals that tell the cells to grow are blocked and the cancer cell may be marked for destruction by the body’s immune system. 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. Giving tucatinib, trastuzumab, and capecitabine may help to control leptomeningeal disease and improve survival in patients with breast cancer.

Monoclonal antibodies, such as durvalumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Vaccines made from a gene-modified virus may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. Giving booster vaccinations may make a stronger immune response and prevent or delay the recurrence of cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as capecitabine and bevacizumab, 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. Given durvalumab, MVA-BN-CV301, FPV vaccine CV301, and capecitabine with or without bevacizumab may work better in treating patients with colorectal or pancreatic cancer.

  • Atorvastatin in Treating Patients with Stage IIb-III Triple Negative Breast Cancer Who Did Not Achieve a Pathologic Complete Response after Receiving Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy

    This phase II trial studies how well atorvastatin works in treating patients with stages IIb-III triple negative breast cancer who did not achieve a pathologic complete response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Pathologic complete response is the lack of all signs of cancer in tissue samples removed during surgery after upfront chemotherapy. Atorvastatin is used for the treatment of high cholesterol and may reduce the risk of triple negative breast cancer from coming back. Triple-negative breast cancer is a type of breast malignancy that is comprised of cancer cells that do not have estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, or large amounts of HER2 / neu protein. Patients with TNBC do not have established systemic therapies such as anti-estrogens or HER2-targeting agents to reduce recurrence after surgery, and residual cancer found at surgery is associated with higher relapse rate.
