  • Biomarker-Targeted Second-Line Therapy in Treating Patients with Recurrent Stage IV Squamous Cell Lung Cancer (The Lung-MAP Screening Trial)

    This screening and multi-sub-study randomized phase II / III Lung-MAP trial will establish a method for genomic screening of similar large cancer populations followed by assigning and accruing simultaneously to a multi-sub-study hybrid “Master Protocol” (S1400). The type of cancer trait (biomarker) will determine to which sub-study, within this protocol, a participant will be assigned to compare new targeted cancer therapy, designed to block the growth and spread of cancer, or combinations to standard of care therapy with the ultimate goal of being able to approve new targeted therapies in this setting. In addition, the protocol includes a “non-match” sub-study which will include all screened patients not eligible for any of the biomarker-driven sub-studies. This sub-study will compare a non-match therapy to standard of care also with the goal of approval.

  • Maintenance Chemotherapy with or without Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients with Stage IV Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well giving maintenance chemotherapy with or without stereotactic body radiation therapy works in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. Drugs used in maintenance chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, pemetrexed disodium, erlotinib hydrochloride, and gemcitabine 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. Stereotactic body radiation therapy is a specialized radiation therapy that sends x-rays directly to the tumor using smaller doses over several days and may cause less damage to normal tissue. Giving maintenance chemotherapy and stereotactic body radiation therapy together may work better than maintenance chemotherapy alone in treating patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer.

  • Study of the Glutaminase Inhibitor CB-839 in Solid Tumors

    Many tumor cells, in contrast to normal cells, have been shown to require the amino acid glutamine to produce energy for growth and survival. To exploit the dependence of tumors on glutamine, CB-839, a potent and selective inhibitor of the first enzyme in glutamine utilization, glutaminase, will be tested in this Phase 1 study in patients with solid tumors. This study is an open-label Phase 1 evaluation of CB-839 in patients with advanced solid tumors. The study will be conducted in 2 parts. Part 1 is a dose escalation study enrolling patients with locally-advanced, metastatic and / or refractory solid tumors to receive CB-839 capsules orally twice or three times daily. In Part 2, patients with each of the following diseases will be enrolled: A) Triple-Negative Breast Cancer, B) Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (adenocarcinoma), C) Renal Cell Cancer, D) Mesothelioma, E) Fumarate hydratase (FH)-deficient tumors, F) Succinate dehydrogenase (SDH)-deficient gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), G) SDH-deficient non-GIST tumors, H) tumors harboring mutations in isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 (IDH1) or IDH2, and I) cMyc mutation tumors. As an extension of Parts 1 & 2, patients will be treated with CB-839 in combination with standard chemotherapy. Combination groups include: Pac-CB, CBE, CB-Erl, CBD, and CB-Cabo. Pac-CB: patients with locally-advanced or metastatic TNBC will be treated with paclitaxel and CB-839. CBE: patients with advanced clear cell RCC or papillary RCC will be treated with everolimus in combination with CB-839. CB-Erl: patients with advanced NSCLC lacking the T790M EGFR mutation will be treated with erlotinib and CB-839.

  • FUS1-nanoparticles and Erlotinib in Stage IV Lung Cancer

    The goal of phase 1 of this clinical research study is to find the highest dose of DOTAP:Chol-fus1 that can be safely given in combination with Tarceva (erlotinib hydrochloride) to patients with NSCLC. The goal of phase 2 of this clinical research study is to learn if the combination of DOTAP:Chol-fus1 and erlotinib hydrochloride can help to control NSCLC. The safety of this drug combination will also be studied in both phases. DOTAP:Chol-fus1 is a drug that helps transfer a gene called fus1 into cancer cells. Researchers think that cells without this gene may be involved in the development of lung cancer tumors. They want to find out if replacing the gene in these cells may keep the tissue from forming cancer cells. Erlotinib hydrochloride is designed to block a protein on tumor cells that may control tumor growth and survival. This may stop tumors from growing.
