Clinical Trials Using Docetaxel

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Docetaxel. 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 101-103 of 103

  • Biomarker-Driven Therapy and Immunotherapy in Screening Participants with Recurrent or Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (The Expanded Lung-MAP Screening Trial)

    This expansion of the screening and multi-sub-study Lung-MAP trial is motivated by the changing landscape due to progress in the development of immunotherapies. The Lung-MAP trial was originally opened in June of 2014 for second-line treatment of participants with stage IV squamous lung cancer or squamous lung cancer that has come back (recurrent). The trial was amended to allow all participants with previously-treated stage IV or recurrent squamous lung cancer in 2015. The study is now expanding to allow participants with all types of previously-treated stage IV or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer. The type of cancer trait (biomarker) will determine to which sub-study, within this protocol, a participant will be assigned in order to compare new targeted cancer therapy designed to block the growth and spread of cancer, with the ultimate goal of being able to approve new targeted therapies in this setting. In addition, the protocol includes “non-match” sub-studies which will include all screened participants not eligible for any of the biomarker-driven sub-studies.

  • A Study of Pevonedistat in People With Blood Cancers or Solid Tumors With Kidney or Liver Problems

    Pevonedistat is a medicine to treat people with blood cancers or solid tumors. The main aim of the study is to learn about the levels of pevonedistat in the blood of participants with blood cancers or solid tumors, who also have severe kidney problems or mild to moderate liver problems. The information from this study will be used to work out the best dose of pevonedistat to give people with these conditions in future studies. At the first visit, the study doctor will check who can take part in the study. This study is in 2 parts: A and B. Part A Participants will be placed into 1 of 4 treatment groups depending on how severe their kidney and liver problems are. All participants will receive 1 dose of pevonedistat as a slow injection in their vein (infusion). Then, the study doctors will check the levels of pevonedistat in the blood of the participants for 3 days after the infusion. They will also check if the participants have any side effects from pevonedistat. Participants will be asked to continue to Part B. Those who don't want to continue will visit the clinic 30 days later for a final check-up. Part B Participants who agree to participate into Part B will receive an infusion of pevonedistat on specific days during a 21-day or 28-day cycle. The cycle time will depend on what type of cancer the participants have. Participants will also be treated with standard of care medicines for their kidney and liver problems during this time. In the first cycle, the study doctors will also check the levels of pevonedistat in the blood and urine of participants for 3 days after the infusion. Participants will continue with cycles of treatment together with standard of care medicines until their condition gets worse or they have too many side effects from the treatment. When treatment has finished, participants will visit the clinic 10 days later for a final check-up.

  • Observational Study of Docetaxel Exposure in Metastatic Prostate Cancer Patients

    In this observational study, blood samples for pharmacokinetic (PK) testing will be collected from subjects with metastatic prostate cancer during their treatment with docetaxel. Plasma levels of docetaxel will be determined, and the subjects docetaxel exposure levels, determined as an area under the curve (AUC), will be retrospectively correlated with reports of toxicity, tumor response, quality of life, time to disease progression and overall survival to provide guidance on what the appropriate target range for docetaxel exposure should be for metastatic prostate cancer subjects receiving docetaxel therapy for their disease.
