Trials 26-50 of 147

  • Myeloma-Developing Regimens Using Genomics (MyDRUG)

    The MyDRUG study is a type of Precision Medicine trial to treat patients with drugs targeted to affect specific genes that are mutated as part of the disease. Mutations in genes can lead to uncontrolled cell growth and cancer. Patients with a greater than 30% mutation to any of the following genes; CDKN2C, FGFR3, KRAS, NRAS, BRAF V600E, IDH2 or T(11;14) can be enrolled to one of the treatment arms. These arms have treatments specifically directed to the mutated genes. Patients that do not have a greater than 30% mutation to the genes listed can be enrolled to a non-actionable treatment arm. The genetic sequencing of the patient's tumor is required via enrollment to the MMRF002 study: Clinical-grade Molecular Profiling of Patients with Multiple Myeloma and Related Plasma Cell Malignancies. (NCT02884102).

  • Daratumumab, Carfilzomib, Pomalidomide, and Dexamethasone for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

    This phase II trial studies the side effects of daratumumab and how well it works in combination with carfilzomib, pomalidomide, and dexamethasone in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Daratumumab is a type of antibody (a protein that attaches to other cells to fight off infection) that works by attaching to the CD38 molecule which is expressed in multiple myeloma cells. By attaching to the CD38 molecule, daratumumab may cause cell death. Carfilzomib is a type of inhibitor that works by inhibiting (blocking) multiple myeloma cells from breaking down proteins within the cells. This may cause a buildup of proteins within multiple myeloma cells, which may lead to cell death. Pomalidomide is an immunomodulatory drug (it affects the immune system) that works by affecting the growth signals that keep cancer cells alive. Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid (a type of steroid) that may kill cancer cells. Giving daratumumab in combination with carfilzomib, pomalidomide, and dexamethasone may kill more cancer cells in patients with multiple myeloma.

  • Ixazomib, Pomalidomide, and Dexamethasone for the Treatment of Recurrent or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of the combination of ixazomib, pomalidomide and dexamethasone for treating patients with multiple myeloma that has come back (recurrent) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Ixazomib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking or slowing down a part of cells called proteasomes, therefore preventing proteasomes from doing their job, which is digestion of proteins. The buildup of excess proteins may cause cell death. Dexamethasone may stop white blood cells from traveling to areas myeloma cells are causing damage, and when combined with drugs used to treat myeloma, it sometimes makes those drugs work better. Giving ixazomib, pomalidomide, and dexamethasone may work better in treating patients with multiple myeloma compared to chemotherapy alone.

  • Nivolumab, Ixazomib, Cyclophosphamide, and Dexamethasone for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

    This phase II trial studies the side effects of nivolumab, ixazomib, cyclophosphamide, and dexamethasone and to see how well they work for the treatment of multiple myeloma that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Nivolumab is a type of antibody (a protein that attaches to other cells to fight off infection and disease) that attaches to and inhibits a protein called PD-1. PD-1 normally acts as a type of “off switch” that helps keep the T cells from attacking other cells in the body. Some cancer cells have large amounts of PD-L1 which binds to PD-1 and turns off the immune system. Nivolumab inhibits PD-1 and helps take the “brake” off the immune system, which may allow immune cells to then recognize and destroy cancer cells. Ixazomib is a type of inhibitor that blocks a protein in cells called a proteasome. Proteasomes are responsible for breaking down other proteins in cells when they need to be disposed of. By blocking the proteasome from working, a buildup of proteins will be created in cancer cells, which may lead to cancer cell death. Chemotherapy drugs, such as cyclophosphamide, 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. Anti-inflammatory drugs, such as dexamethasone, lower the body’s immune response and are used with other drugs in the treatment of some types of cancer. Giving nivolumab and ixazomib with cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone may increase the activity of both ixazomib and nivolumab.
