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 147

  • Ixazomib Citrate with Pomalidomide, Clarithromycin and Dexamethasone in Treating Patients with Relapse or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of clarithromycin when given together with ixazomib citrate, pomalidomide, and dexamethasone and to see how well it works in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Biological therapies, such as clarithromycin, pomalidomide, and dexamethasone, use substances made from living organisms that may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Ixazomib citrate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving clarithromycin with ixazomib citrate, pomalidomide and dexamethasone may be a better treatment for patients with multiple myeloma.

  • 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....

  • Ultrasound-Guided Serratus Anterior Plane Block for Additional Pain Relief after Lung Surgery

    This trial studies how well serratus anterior plane block works in relieving pain in patients who are undergoing lung surgery. Serratus anterior plane block involves injection of a local anesthetic called bupivacaine under the serratus anterior muscle (located on the first 8 ribs on the side of the chest). Two other medications, clonidine and dexamethasone, are added to the local anesthetic to make the numbing effect of bupivacaine last longer. Giving serratus anterior plane block during lung surgery may help to minimize the use of opioids after surgery.

  • Copanlisib and Combination Chemotherapy for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma or Relapsed Grade 3b Follicular Lymphoma

    This phase I trial studies the best dose of copanlisib when given together with combination chemotherapy (R-GCD) in treating patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory) or grade 3b follicular lymphoma that has come back (relapsed) after 1 prior line of therapy. Copanlisib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as rituximab, gemcitabine, carboplatin, 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 copanlisib together with R-GCD as second line therapy may improve the complete response rate for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma or follicular lymphoma.

  • Daratumumab and Dexamethasone with or without Lenalidomide or Bortezomib for the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma in Older Adults

    This phase II trial studies how well daratumumab and dexamethasone with or without lenalidomide or bortezomib works in treating older adults 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. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as dexamethasone, lenalidomide, 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. Giving daratumumab and dexamethasone with lenalidomide or bortezomib may work better in treating older adults with multiple myeloma compared to daratumumab and dexamethasone.

  • 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.
