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 101-108 of 108

  • Avelumab and Docetaxel in Treating Patients with Platinum Refractory or Ineligible Metastatic Urothelial Cancer

    This phase Ib trial studies the best dose of avelumab and how well it works when given together with docetaxel in treating patients with urothelial cancer that has spread to other places in the body and does not respond to platinum chemotherapy or cannot receive platinum chemotherapy. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as avelumab, 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 docetaxel, 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 avelumab and docetaxel may work better in treating patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer.

  • M6620 and Carboplatin with or without Docetaxel in Treating Patients with Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well berzosertib (M6620) and carboplatin with or without docetaxel works in treating patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). M6620 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and docetaxel, 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 M6620, carboplatin and docetaxel may work better in treating patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer compared to carboplatin and docetaxel alone.

  • Docetaxel or Paclitaxel in Reducing Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy in African American Patients with Stage I-III Breast Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well docetaxel or paclitaxel work in reducing chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy in African American patients with stages I-III breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and paclitaxel, 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. It is not yet known whether giving docetaxel or paclitaxel may work better than other methods in reducing chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy in patients with breast cancer.

  • 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.

  • Fluciclovine (18F) PET / CT in Predicting Treatment Response in Patients with Recurrent or Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer Receiving Chemotherapy

    This phase II trial studies the use of fluciclovine (18 fluorine [F]) positron emission tomography (PET) / computed tomography (CT) in predicting treatment response in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer that has come back or spread to other places in the body and are receiving chemotherapy. Fluciclovine (18F) is a radiotracer that accumulates in tumor cells and may be useful in imaging tumors using PET scans. PET / CT scans make detailed, computerized pictures of areas inside the body where fluciclovine (18F) accumulates. Diagnostic procedures, such as fluciclovine (18F) PET / CT, may help doctors predict treatment response in patients receiving chemotherapy.

  • Precise Local Injection of Anti-cancer Drugs Using Presage's CIVO™ Device in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

    This is a feasibility study in patients with localized or metastatic soft tissue sarcoma undergoing surgery to determine how sarcoma in situ responds to injected microdoses of anti-cancer therapeutics.

  • A Study of Pevonedistat in Combination With Select Standard of Care Agents in Participants With Higher-risk Myelodysplastic Syndromes, Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia, Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, Or Advanced Solid Tumors With Severe Renal Impairment or Mild or Moderate Hepatic Impairment

    The purpose of this study is to characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) of pevonedistat in participants with severe renal impairment or mild or moderate hepatic impairment.

  • 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.
