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.

Trials 51-75 of 146

  • Ixazomib Citrate, Cyclophosphamide and Dexamethasone in Treating Newly Diagnosed Participants with Primary Amyloidosis

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of ixazomib citrate when given together with cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone and to see how well it works in treating participants with primary amyloidosis. Ixazomib citrate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide 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 ixazomib citrate together with cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone may work better in treating participants with primary amyloidosis.

  • Carfilzomib, Lenalidomide, and Dexamethasone for Smoldering Multiple Myeloma

    Background: - Multiple myeloma is a blood cancer that affects the plasma cells. These cells help produce antibodies and fight infection. Smoldering multiple myeloma (SMM) is a related condition that may develop into multiple myeloma. The current standard of care for SMM is close follow-up without treatment until multiple myeloma develops. However, researchers are studying possible treatments for SMM itself. One possible treatment involves a combination of cancer treatment drugs. - Lenalidomide is a drug that may help reduce or prevent the growth of cancer cells. Dexamethasone is a steroid that is often given with other anti-cancer drugs. These two drugs are an approved treatment for multiple myeloma that has not responded to at least one other treatment. Carfilzomib is an experimental drug that has been effective in treating multiple myeloma. Researchers want to combine these three drugs to see if they are a safe and effective treatment for SMM. Objectives: - To see if carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone are a safe and effective treatment for smoldering multiple myeloma. Eligibility: - Individuals at least 18 years of age who have SMM that is likely to progress to multiple myeloma. Design: - Participants will be screened with a physical exam and medical history. They will also have blood and urine tests, and baseline bone marrow scans. Bone marrow samples will also be collected. - Participants will have eight 28-day cycles of treatment with the three study drugs. The drugs will be given as tablets or as infusions. Treatment will be monitored with frequent blood tests and study visits. - After the first four cycles, participants who are eligible for a stem cell transplant will have their stem cells collected and stored for future use. - At the end of eight cycles, participants whose disease has not progressed will have up to 12 more cycles of treatment with lenalidomide tablets alone.

  • Temozolomide, Etoposide, Doxil, Dexamethasone, Ibrutinib, and Rituximab (TEDDI-R) in Aggressive B-cell Lymphomas With Secondary Involvement of the Central Nervous System (CNS)

    Background: Secondary central nervous system lymphoma (sCNSL) is cancer that has spread to the central nervous system. Most drugs used to treat it do not cross the blood-brain barrier. This makes it hard to treat. Researchers hope that a new combination of drugs may be able to help. Objective: To find a better way to treat sCNSL. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older with sCNSL Design: Participants will be screened with: - Medical history - Physical exam - Blood, urine, and heart tests - Eye exam - Tissue or tumor biopsy - Collection of cerebrospinal fluid - CT, PET, and MRI scans: Participants will like in a machine that takes pictures of the body. - Bone marrow aspirations or biopsies: A needle will be inserted into the participant s hipbone. The needle will remove a small amount of marrow. Participants will take the study drugs in 21-day cycles. They will take some drugs by mouth. They will take others through a catheter: A small tube will be inserted into a vein in the arm, neck, or chest. They may have drugs given through a catheter placed through the brain or injected into the spinal canal. Participants will have regular visits during the study. These will include repeats of the screening test. They may also provide a saliva sample or have a cheek swab. Participants will have up to 4 treatment cycles. Participants will have a follow-up visit 30 days after their last treatment dose. Then they will have visits every 3-6 months for 3 years and then yearly. ...

Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as ixazomib, dexamethasone, and bortezomib, 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 giving daratumumab, ixazomib, and dexamethasone with or without bortezomib may work better in treating patients with multiple myeloma.
