Clinical Trials Using Ganitumab

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Ganitumab. 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 1-4 of 4
  • I-SPY 2 TRIAL: Neoadjuvant and Personalized Adaptive Novel Agents to Treat Breast Cancer

    The purpose of this study is to further advance the ability to practice personalized medicine by learning which new drug agents are most effective with which types of breast cancer tumors and by learning more about which early indicators of response (tumor analysis prior to surgery via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images along with tissue and blood samples) are predictors of treatment success.

  • Palbociclib and Ganitumab for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory Ewing Sarcoma

    This phase II trial studies how well palbociclib and ganitumab work in patients with Ewing sarcoma that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Palbociclib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as ganitumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving palbociclib and ganitumab may work better in treating patients with Ewing sarcoma compared to either palbociclib or ganitumab alone.

  • Ganitumab and Dasatinib in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Embryonal or Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of dasatinib when given together with ganitumab and to see how well they work in treating patients with embryonal and alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma that has come back (recurrent) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Dasatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with ganitumab, may induce changes in body’s immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving dasatinib and ganitumab may work better in treating patients with embryonal and alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma compared to standard treatment, including surgery, radiation, and / or chemotherapy.

  • Implantable Microdevice for the Delivery of Drugs and their Effect on Tumors in Patients with Metastatic or Recurrent Sarcoma

    This early phase I trial studies the side effects of implanting and removing a microdevice in patients with sarcomas that have spread to other places in the body (metastatic) or have come back (recurrent). Microdevices are rice-sized devices that are implanted into tumor tissue and are loaded with 10 different drugs that are delivered at very small doses, or "microdoses," which may only affect a very small, local area inside the tumor. The purpose of this study is to determine which drugs delivered in the microdevice affect tumor tissue in patients with sarcomas.
