  • Trastuzumab and Pertuzumab or Cetuximab and Irinotecan Hydrochloride in Treating Patients with Locally Advanced or Metastatic HER2 / Neu Amplified Colorectal Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well trastuzumab and pertuzumab work compared to cetuximab and irinotecan hydrochloride in treating patients with HER2 / neu amplified colorectal cancer that has spread from where it started to other places in the body (advanced / metastatic) and cannot be removed by surgery. 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. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pertuzumab and cetuximab, 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 irinotecan 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. Giving trastuzumab and pertuzumab may work better compared to cetuximab and irinotecan hydrochloride in treating patients with colorectal cancer.

  • Testing Docetaxel-Cetuximab or the Addition of an Immunotherapy drug, Atezolizumab, to the Usual Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy in High-Risk Head and Neck Cancer

    This phase II / III trial studies how well radiation therapy works when given together with cisplatin, docetaxel, cetuximab, and / or atezolizumab after surgery in treating patients with high-risk stage III-IV head and neck cancer the begins in the thin, flat cells (squamous cell). Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and docetaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Cetuximab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. 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. The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment (radiation therapy with cisplatin chemotherapy) to using radiation therapy with docetaxel and cetuximab chemotherapy, and using the usual treatment plus an immunotherapy drug, atezolizumab.

  • Early Identification and Treatment of Occult Metastatic Disease in Stage III Colorectal Cancer

    This phase III trial studies how well either FOLFIRI (leucovorin, fluorouracil, and irinotecan), active surveillance, nivolumab, or encorafenib, binimetinib, and cetuximab work in decreasing recurrence (chance of the cancer coming back) in patients with stage III colorectal cancer who are ctDNA positive. If all the cancer is not killed after initial treatment, bloods tests may be able to detect tumor DNA in the blood called circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA). This is genetic material unique to the cancer that may be present in the blood stream and can be identified through a ctDNA blood test. Cancer researchers believe that ctDNA in the blood stream may be an indicator that cancer is more likely to recur. Chemotherapy drugs, such as leucovorin, fluorouracil, and 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. Nivolumab is an anti-PD-1 antibody. It works by attaching to and blocking a molecule called PD-1. PD-1 is a protein that is present on different types of cells in the immune system and controls parts of the immune system by shutting it down. Antibodies that block PD-1 can potentially prevent PD-1 from shutting down the immune system, thus potentially allowing immune cells to recognize and destroy cancer cells. Encorafenib in combination with binimetinib and cetuximab may target the BRAF V600E-mutation in colorectal cancer. When this mutation is present, it switches on pathway called the MAPK pathway which stimulates cell division and leads to uncontrolled cell growth. Encorafenib, binimetinib and cetuximab target different parts of this important signaling pathway in tumor cells with this mutation and may slow down their growth and communication. Encorafenib and binimetinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cetuximab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. This study is being done to determine whether there are differences in cancer recurrence in ctDNA positive patients treated with additional therapy versus put on active surveillance.

  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Cetuximab with or without Docetaxel in Treating Patients with Recurrent Head and Neck Cancer Previously Treated with Radiation Therapy

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well stereotactic radiosurgery and cetuximab with docetaxel work compared with stereotactic radiosurgery and cetuximab alone in treating patients with head and neck cancer previously treated with radiation therapy that has come back after a period of improvement (recurrent). Stereotactic radiosurgery, also called stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method may kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue. Cetuximab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, 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. It is not yet known whether giving stereotactic radiosurgery and cetuximab with or without docetaxel is more effective in killing tumor cells.
