Clinical Trials Using Dexamethasone

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

  • Daratumumab, Carfilzomib, Lenalidomide, and Dexamethasone in Treating Patients with Newly-Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma

    This phase II trial studies how well daratumumab, carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone work in treating patients with newly-diagnosed multiple myeloma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as daratumumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Carfilzomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as lenalidomide and dexamethasone, 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. Giving daratumumab, carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone may work better in treating patients with multiple myeloma.

  • Lenalidomide with or without Ixazomib Citrate and Dexamethasone in Treating Patients with Residual Multiple Myeloma after Donor Stem Cell Transplant

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well lenalidomide alone compared to lenalidomide, ixazomib citrate, and dexamethasone work in treating patients with multiple myeloma that remains (residual) after donor stem cell transplant. Lenalidomide may help the immune system kill abnormal blood cells or cancer cells and may also prevent the growth of new blood vessels that are needed for cancer growth. Ixazomib citrate may stop the growth of cancer cells by interfering with proteins necessary for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as dexamethasone, 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. It is not yet known whether lenalidomide is more effective with or without ixazomib citrate and dexamethasone in treating residual multiple myeloma.

CB-839 HCl and carfilzomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as dexamethasone 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. Giving CB-839 HCl, carfilzomib, and dexamethasone may work better in treating patients with multiple myeloma.

Part 1 of the study is a dose escalation phase to evaluate the safety and tolerability of up to 3 dose levels and up to 2 dosing schedules of GSK2857916 in combination with the two standard of care (SoC) regimens. Part 2 will further evaluate the safety and preliminary clinical activity of GSK2857916 at selected dose levels and dosing schedules in combination with Len / Dex or Bor / Dex. Up to a total of 123 evaluable participants will be enrolled in the study with up to 33 Part 1 and up to 90 in Part 2. Participants receiving treatment Arm A, may continue combination treatment until the occurrence of progressive disease (PD), intolerable adverse events (AEs ), consent withdrawal, or death. The participants receiving treatment Arm B, may continue combination treatment for a total of up to 8 cycles. After 8 cycles of combination therapy, the participants will continue treatment with GSK2857916, as a monotherapy until the occurrence of PD, intolerable AEs, consent withdrawal, or death.

There are two primary study hypotheses. Hypothesis 1: The combination of pembrolizumab plus docetaxel plus prednisone is superior to placebo plus docetaxel plus prednisone with respect to Overall Survival (OS). Hypothesis 2: The combination of pembrolizumab plus docetaxel plus prednisone is superior to placebo plus docetaxel plus prednisone with respect to Radiographic Progression-free Survival (rPFS) per Prostate Cancer Working Group (PCWG)-modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors Version 1.1 (RECIST 1.1) as assessed by blinded independent central review.

  • Daratumumab, Ixazomib, Pomalidomide, and Dexamethasone in Treating Patients with Multiple Myeloma That Has Come Back or Does Not Respond to Treatment

    This phase II trial studies the side effects and best dose of daratumumab, ixazomib, pomalidomide, and dexamethasone, and how well they work in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as daratumumab, may induce changes in the body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Ixazomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pomalidomide and dexamethasone, 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 daratumumab, ixazomib, pomalidomide, and dexamethasone may work better than chemotherapy alone in treating patients with multiple myeloma.

  • Lenalidomide, Dexamethasone, and Elotuzumab in Treating Patients with Relapsed Primary Amyloidosis

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well lenalidomide, dexamethasone, and elotuzumab work in treating patients with primary amyloidosis that has come back after a period of improvement (relapsed). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as lenalidomide and dexamethasone, 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 elotuzumab may induce changes in body’s immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving lenalidomide, dexamethasone, and elotuzumab may work better in treating patients with primary amyloidosis.

  • NFKB2 Rearrangement in Guiding Treatment with Ixazomib Citrate and Dexamethasone or Ixazomib Citrate, Dexamethasone and Lenalidomide in Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well ixazomib citrate and dexamethasone or ixazomib citrate, dexamethasone, and lenalidomide work based on the expression of a gene called nuclear factor of kappa light polypeptide gene enhancer in B-cells 2 (NFKB2) in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has returned after a period of improvement or does not respond to treatment. Ixazomib citrate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking enzymes called proteasomes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as dexamethasone, 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. Lenalidomide may stimulate the immune system against cancer cells and may also prevent the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. It is not yet known whether ixazomib citrate and dexamethasone, or ixazomib citrate, dexamethasone, and lenalidomide are more effective in treating multiple myeloma.

  • Lenalidomide with or without Carfilzomib and Dexamethasone in Treating Patients with Multiple Myeloma after Stem-Cell Transplant

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well lenalidomide with or without carfilzomib and dexamethasone works in treating patients with multiple myeloma after stem-cell transplant. Lenalidomide may help the immune system kill abnormal blood cells or cancer cells. It may also prevent the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. Carfilzomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Dexamethasone is a drug used to reduce inflammation and lower the body’s immune response. Giving lenalidomide together with carfilzomib and dexamethasone may be an effective treatment for multiple myeloma.
