Trials 1-14 of 14
  • A Study to Compare the Administration of Encorafenib + Binimetinib + Nivolumab versus Ipilimumab + Nivolumab in BRAF-V600 Mutant Melanoma with Brain Metastases

    This phase II trial compares the effect of encorafenib, binimetinib, and nivolumab versus ipilimumab and nivolumab in treating patients with BRAF- V600 mutant melanoma that has spread to the brain (brain metastases). Encorafenib and binimetinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab and nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the tumor, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. This trial aims to find out which approach is more effective in shrinking and controlling brain metastases from melanoma.

  • Binimetinib and Encorafenib in Treating Patients with Recurrent BRAF V600-Mutated High-Grade Astrocytoma or Other Primary Brain Tumor

    This phase II trial studies the effect of the combination of binimetinib and encorafenib in treating patients with high-grade astrocytoma or other primary brain tumors that have come back (recurrent) and are positive for BRAF V600 mutations. BRAF V600 mutations are specific changes in the BRAF gene, which makes a protein that is involved in sending signals in cells and in cell growth. BRAF V600 mutations may increase the growth and spread of cancer cells. Binimetinib and encorafenib may be more effective than usual treatment (surgery, radiation or chemotherapy) in stopping the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth in patients with recurrent high-grade astrocytoma or other primary brain tumors that are positive for BRAF V600 mutations.

  • Early Identification and Treatment of Occult Metastatic Disease in Stage III Colorectal Cancer

    This phase III trial studies how well either FOLFIRI (leucovorin, fluorouracil, and irinotecan), active surveillance, nivolumab, or encorafenib, binimetinib, and cetuximab work in decreasing recurrence (chance of the cancer coming back) in patients with stage III colorectal cancer who are ctDNA positive. If all the cancer is not killed after initial treatment, bloods tests may be able to detect tumor DNA in the blood called circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA). This is genetic material unique to the cancer that may be present in the blood stream and can be identified through a ctDNA blood test. Cancer researchers believe that ctDNA in the blood stream may be an indicator that cancer is more likely to recur. Chemotherapy drugs, such as leucovorin, fluorouracil, and irinotecan, 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. Nivolumab is an anti-PD-1 antibody. It works by attaching to and blocking a molecule called PD-1. PD-1 is a protein that is present on different types of cells in the immune system and controls parts of the immune system by shutting it down. Antibodies that block PD-1 can potentially prevent PD-1 from shutting down the immune system, thus potentially allowing immune cells to recognize and destroy cancer cells. Encorafenib in combination with binimetinib and cetuximab may target the BRAF V600E-mutation in colorectal cancer. When this mutation is present, it switches on pathway called the MAPK pathway which stimulates cell division and leads to uncontrolled cell growth. Encorafenib, binimetinib and cetuximab target different parts of this important signaling pathway in tumor cells with this mutation and may slow down their growth and communication. Encorafenib and binimetinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cetuximab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. This study is being done to determine whether there are differences in cancer recurrence in ctDNA positive patients treated with additional therapy versus put on active surveillance.

  • Binimetinib and Encorafenib in Treating Patients with Genetically Changed (Non-V600 Activating BRAF Mutant) Metastatic or Advanced Malignant Tumors

    This phase I / II trial studies the best dose and side effects of binimetinib and to see how well it works when given together with encorafenib in treating patients with malignant tumors that have spread to other places in the body (metastatic or advanced) and have a specific type of genetic mutation (non-V600 activating BRAF mutant). BRAF gene makes a protein that is involved in sending signals in cells and in cell growth. BRAF activating mutation may result in constant activation of cellular growth that may increase the growth and spread of cancer cells. Binimetinib and encorafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Encorafenib Plus Binimetinib for People With BRAF V600E Mutated Relapsed / Refractory HCL

    Background: Hairy cell leukemia (HCL) does not usually respond to chemotherapy. Most people with HCL have a BRAF gene mutation. This can increase the growth of cancer cells. Vemurafenib has been tested to treat these people. However, researchers think a combination of drugs might work better. Objective: To test if treatment with a combination of encorafenib and binimetinib in BRAF mutant HCL is more effective than treatment with vemurafenib. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older with BRAF mutant HCL that did not respond to or came back after treatment Design: Participants will be screened with: Medical history Physical exam Bone marrow biopsy: A needle will be injected through the participant s skin and into a bone to remove liquid. Blood and urine tests Heart and lung function tests CT or MRI scan: Participants will lie in a machine that takes pictures of the body. They may have a contrast agent injected into a vein. Eye exam Participants will take the study drugs by mouth in 28-day cycles. They will take encorafenib daily. They will take binimetinib twice daily. They will keep a pill diary. Participants will take their temperature daily. Participants will have at least 1 visit before each cycle. Visits will include repeats of some screening tests. They will also include abdominal ultrasounds, exercise stress tests, and skin evaluations. Participants may continue treatment as long as their disease does not get worse and they do not have bad side effects. About a month after their last dose of treatment, participants will have a follow-up visit. Then they will have annual follow-ups....
