Clinical Trials Using Dacarbazine

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Dacarbazine. 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 1-12 of 12
  • Immunotherapy (Nivolumab or Brentuximab Vedotin) Plus Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Stage III-IV Classic Hodgkin Lymphoma

    This randomized phase III trial compares immunotherapy drugs (nivolumab or brentuximab vedotin) when given with combination chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage III or IV classic Hodgkin lymphoma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Brentuximab vedotin is a monoclonal antibody, brentuximab, linked to a toxic agent called vedotin. Brentuximab attaches to cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers vedotin to kill them. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. The addition of nivolumab or brentuximab vedotin to combination chemotherapy may shrink the cancer or extend the time without disease symptoms coming back.

  • Doxorubicin Hydrochloride, Vinblastine, Dacarbazine, Brentuximab Vedotin, and Nivolumab in Treating Patients with Stage I-II Hodgkin Lymphoma

    This phase II trial evaluates how well AVD (doxorubicin hydrochloride, vinblastine, dacarbazine) in combination with brentuximab vedotin and nivolumab work in treating patients with stage I-II Hodgkin lymphoma. Drugs used in the chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, vinblastine, dacarbazine, and brentuximab vedotin, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, and / or by stopping them from spreading. Targeted agent, such as nivolumab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread by enhancing the immune system. Giving doxorubicin hydrochloride, vinblastine, dacarbazine, brentuximab vedotin, and nivolumab may improve survival of patients with stage I-II Hodgkin lymphoma.

  • Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma

    This is a phase II study using risk and response-adapted therapy for low, intermediate and high risk classical Hodgkin lymphoma. Chemotherapy regimens will be based on risk group assignment. Low-risk and intermediate- risk patients will be treated with bendamustine, etoposide, Adriamycin (doxorubicin), bleomycin, Oncovin (vincristine), vinblastine, and prednisone (BEABOVP) chemotherapy. High-risk patients will receive Adcetris (brentuximab vedotin), etoposide, prednisone and Adriamycin (doxorubicin) (AEPA) and cyclophosphamide, Adcetris (brentuximab vedotin), prednisone and Dacarbazine (DTIC) (CAPDac) chemotherapy. Residual node radiotherapy will be given at the end of all chemotherapy only to involved nodes that do not have an adequate response (AR) after 2 cycles of therapy for all risk groups.

  • Brentuximab Vedotin and Nivolumab in Treating Patients with Early Stage Classic Hodgkin Lymphoma

    This phase II trial studies how well brentuximab vedotin and nivolumab work in treating patients with stage I-II classic Hodgkin lymphoma. Brentuximab vedotin is a monoclonal antibody, brentuximab, linked to a toxic agent called vedotin. Brentuximab attaches to CD30 positive cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers vedotin to kill them. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

  • Nivolumab and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Untreated Stage III-IV Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma

    This phase I trial studies the best dose and side effects of nivolumab and combination chemotherapy in treating patients with untreated stage III-IV classical Hodgkin Lymphoma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, 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 combination chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, bleomycin sulfate, vinblastine, and dacarbazine (ABVD) 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 more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells and work better at treating Hodgkin lymphoma.

  • A Study of PTC596 in Combination With Dacarbazine in Participants With Advanced Leiomyosarcoma (LMS)

    The primary objective of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of PTC596 in combination with dacarbazine for the treatment of advanced LMS and determine the overall safety profile of PTC596 in combination with dacarbazine. This study will employ the time-to-event continual reassessment method (TITE-CRM) for dose finding. Treatment will be initiated at dose level 2 (DL2) (Dacarbazine 1000 milligrams per square meter [mg / m^2] intravenously (IV) every 21 days in combination with PTC596 200 milligrams [mg] orally twice weekly) for the first participant. This dose level represents the investigator's best assessment of the MTD based on available toxicity data for both agents. For subsequent participants, the dose level at which treatment is initiated will be selected based on the TITE-CRM using the most up to date dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) information from all participants previously treated. Treatment will continue for each participant until evidence of unacceptable toxicity, disease progression, or treatment discontinuation for another reason (study intervention discontinuation and participant discontinuation / withdrawal).

  • Clinical Trial of Brentuximab Vedotin in Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma

    This trial will study two treatment combinations for classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL). This trial will find out if these two treatment combinations work to treat cHL. It will also find out what side effects occur. A side effect is anything the drug does besides treating cancer. This study will have three parts (Parts A, B, and C). The drugs used in Part A are a combination of targeted anticancer drug (brentuximab vedotin) and three chemotherapy drugs (doxorubicin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine). These four drugs are called "A+AVD." Participants will be treated with granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) following every dose of A+AVD for 6 cycles of treatment (12 doses). Part A will look at whether the A+AVD drug combination reduces the number of participants who experience the side effect of febrile neutropenia. Febrile neutropenia is a very low white blood cell count and a fever, which can be life threatening. Parts B and C will use drug combination of brentuximab vedotin, plus nivolumab, doxorubicin, and dacarbazine. These four drugs are called "AN+AD." Parts B and C will study how well the drugs work to treat cHL and what side effects they cause.

  • Doxorubicin Hydrochloride, Pembrolizumab, Vinblastine, and Dacarbazine in Treating Patients with Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma

    This phase II trial studies the side effects of doxorubicin hydrochloride, pembrolizumab, vinblastine, and dacarbazine in treating patients with classical Hodgkin Lymphoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, vinblastine, and dacarbazine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with pembrolizumab, may induce changes in body’s immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving doxorubicin hydrochloride, pembrolizumab, vinblastine, and dacarbazine may work better in treating classical Hodgkin lymphoma.
