Clinical Trials Using Carboplatin

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Carboplatin. 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.

Trials 51-75 of 256

  • Carboplatin, Gemcitabine Hydrochloride, and Berzosertib in Treating Patients with Recurrent and Metastatic Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian Tube Cancer

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of gemcitabine hydrochloride and berzosertib when given together with carboplatin in treating patients with ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer that has come back (recurrent) and has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Chemotherapy drugs, such as carboplatin and gemcitabine 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. Berzosertib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving berzosertib with chemotherapy (carboplatin and gemcitabine hydrochloride) may work better in treating patients with ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer compared to chemotherapy alone.

  • Clinical Trial of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy With Atezolizumab or Placebo in Patients With Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Followed After Surgery by Atezolizumab or Placebo

    The main purpose of this study is to learn if the usual chemotherapy given before surgery (neoadjuvant therapy) for breast cancer plus the experimental drug, atezolizumab, is better than the usual chemotherapy plus a placebo. (A placebo is a drug that looks like the study drug but contains no medication.) The usual chemotherapy in this study is paclitaxel (WP) and carboplatin followed by doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (AC) or epirubicin and cyclophosphamide (EC). Usually, after neoadjuvant therapy and surgery for triple negative breast cancer, no additional treatment is given unless the cancer returns. This study will also look at continuing treatment after surgery with atezolizumab or the placebo. To be better, atezolizumab given with the neoadjuvant therapy should be better at: 1) decreasing the amount of tumor in the breast than the placebo given with the usual chemotherapy and 2) decreasing the chance of the cancer from returning after surgery. Another purpose of this study is to test the good and bad effects of atezolizumab when added to the usual chemotherapy. Atezolizumab may keep your cancer from growing but it can also cause side effects.

  • Atezolizumab, Gemcitabine Hydrochloride, and Cisplatin as First-Line Therapy in Treating Patients with Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Cancer

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well atezolizumab works when given together with gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin as first-line therapy in treating patients with urothelial cancer that has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced), or other places in the body (metastatic). 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. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin, 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 atezolizumab with chemotherapy may kill more tumor cells.

  • Alisertib Alone or in Combination with Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy in Treating Younger Patients with Recurrent, Progressive, or Newly Diagnosed Central Nervous System Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumors or Extra-Central Nervous System Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors

    This phase II trial studies how well alisertib alone or in combination with chemotherapy and radiation therapy works in treating younger patients with central nervous system (CNS) atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumors that are newly diagnosed; have returned; or are growing, spreading, or getting worse or extra-CNS malignant rhabdoid tumors that have returned or are growing, spreading, or getting worse. Alisertib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking a protein called aurora kinase A that is needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy 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 x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving alisertib alone or with chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be effective in treating patients with rhabdoid tumors.

  • Osimertinib Alone or with Chemotherapy for EGFR-Mutant Lung Cancers

    This phase II trial studies how well osimertinib alone or with chemotherapy (carboplatin and pemetrexed) works in treating people that have lung cancer which has spread to another part of the body (metastatic) and has a change (mutation) in the EGFR gene. Osimertinib binds to the EGFR protein and blocks its activity, which slows the tumor growth. Carboplatin and pemetrexed work by targeting the processes that tumor cells use to grow and spread. Giving these chemotherapy drugs may slow the production of new tumor cells which researchers believe are resistant to osimertinib.

  • Nivolumab and Combination Chemotherapy before Surgery for the Treatment of Resectable Pleural Malignant Mesothelioma

    This phase I trial studies how well nivolumab and combination chemotherapy before surgery work in treating patients with pleural malignant mesothelioma that can be removed by surgery (resectable). Nivolumab is a type of medication called an antibody, which is like the proteins made by the immune system to protect the body from harm. Nivolumab blocks the protein PD 1 (programmed cell death receptor 1) that usually acts as a “brake” on the immune system. Blocking this protein is like releasing the brakes, so that the immune system can target cancer cells and destroy them. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed, 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. Giving nivolumab and combination chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with pleural malignant mesothelioma compared to combination chemotherapy alone.

  • Testing the Addition of an Individualized Vaccine to Nab-Paclitaxel, Durvalumab and Tremelimumab and Chemotherapy in Patients with Metastatic Triple Negative Breast Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well nab-paclitaxel, durvalumab, and tremelimumab with or without personalized synthetic long peptide vaccine (neoantigen vaccine) works in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as nab-paclitaxel, 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 durvalumab and tremelimumab, may induce changes in body’s immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Vaccines made from peptides may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether giving nab-paclitaxel, durvalumab, and tremelimumab with or without neoantigen vaccine will work better in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer.

  • Osimertinib, Carboplatin, Cisplatin, and Etoposide in Treating Patients with Metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer with EGFR, RB1, and P53 Mutations

    Mutations are changes in DNA, the genetic material that serves as the body’s instruction book. Some of genetic mutations result in uncontrolled cellular replication and subsequently tumor formation. This phase I trial studies the side effects of osimertinib, carboplatin, cisplatin, and etoposide in treating patients with EGFR, RB1, and P53 mutant non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Osimertinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, cisplatin, or etoposide, 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 osimertinib, carboplatin, cisplatin, and etoposide may work better at treating non-small cell lung cancer.

  • Durvalumab, an Anti-PDLI Antibody, Tremelimumab, an Anti-CTLA4 Antibody, and Chemoradiation before Surgery for Esophageal Cancer

    This phase Ib / II trial studies the side effects of durvalumab when given together with chemotherapy and radiation therapy in treating patients with esophageal or gastroesophageal junction cancer. Both durvalumab and tremelimumab are antibodies (proteins) which bind to cells involved in the immune system. Antibodies are normally made by the body to destroy germs, like bacteria and viruses. The antibodies in this study are designed to boost the body’s immune system, by allowing immune cells to be more active and fight the cancer. Durvalumab works by interacting with an immune molecule called PD-L1, located on the tumor cells and white blood cells. Tremelimumab works by interacting with an immune molecule called CTLA-4, located on white blood cells. Both durvalumab and tremelimumab may help strengthen the immune system. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fluorouracil, leucovorin calcium, oxaliplatin, carboplatin and paclitaxel, 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 durvalumab together with chemotherapy and radiation therapy before surgery may work better at treating patients with esophageal or gastroesophageal junction cancer.

  • A Study of Osimertinib With or Without Chemotherapy as 1st Line Treatment in Patients With Mutated Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (FLAURA2)

    The reason for the study is to find out if an experimental combination of an oral medication called osimertinib (TAGRISSO®) when used in combination with chemotherapy is more effective than giving osimertinib alone for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer. Some lung cancers are due to mutations in the Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) which, if known, can help physicians decide the best treatment for their patients. One type of mutation can occur in the gene that produces a protein on the surface of cells called the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR). Osimertinib is an Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) that targets Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) mutations. Unfortunately, despite the benefit observed for patients treated with osimertinib, the vast majority of cancers are expected to develop resistance to the drug over time. The exact reasons why resistance develops are not fully understood but based upon clinical research it is hoped that combining osimertinib with another type of anti-cancer therapy known as chemotherapy will delay the onset of resistance and the worsening of a patient's cancer. In total the study aims to enroll approximately 586 patients, consisting of approximately 30 patients who will participate in a safety run-in component of the trial, and approximately 556 who will receive osimertinib alone or osimertinib in combination with chemotherapy in the main trial. In the main part of the trial there is a one in two chance of receiving osimertinib alone, and the treatment is decided at random by a computer. The study involves a Screening Period, Treatment Period, and Follow up Period. Whilst receiving study medication, it is expected patients will attend, on average, approximately 15 visits over the first 12 months and then approximately 4 visits per year afterwards. Each visit will last about 2 to 6 hours depending on the arrangement of medical assessments by the study centre.
