Trials 26-49 of 49

  • Selinexor with Multiple Standard Chemotherapy or Immunotherapy Regimens in Treating Patients with Advanced Malignancies

    This phase Ib trial studies the side effects and best dose of selinexor when given together with several different standard chemotherapy or immunotherapy regimens in treating patients with malignancies that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (advanced). Selinexor may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Studying selinexor with different standard chemotherapy or immunotherapy regimens may help doctors learn the side effects and best dose of selinexor that can be given with different types of treatments in one study.

  • Liposomal Irinotecan, Fluorouracil, Leucovorin Calcium, and Rucaparib in Treating Patients with Metastatic Pancreatic, Colorectal, Gastroesophageal, or Biliary Cancer

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of liposomal irinotecan and rucaparib when given together with fluorouracil and leucovorin calcium and to see how well they work in treating patients with pancreatic, colorectal, gastroesophageal, or biliary cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as liposomal irinotecan, fluorouracil, and leucovorin calcium, 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. PARPs are proteins that help repair DNA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as rucaparib, can keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can't repair themselves, and they may stop growing. Giving liposomal irinotecan and rucaparib together with fluorouracil and leucovorin calcium may work better in treating patients with pancreatic, colorectal, gastroesophageal, or biliary cancer.

  • Risk-Adapted Therapy in Treating Young Patients with Mature B-Cell Lymphoma or Leukemia

    Many children and young adults with mature B-cell lymphoma can be cured with current standard treatments, but these standard treatments do not stop every child’s cancer from coming back. Furthermore, many children have significant side effects from treatment, both at the time of treatment and for many years after treatment is completed (late effects). That is why there is still much to be learned about this disease and its treatment. This study is being done to help researchers learn more about the biology and genetics of this disease in children in the United States (U.S.) and at several international sites and to study the effects (good and bad) of this treatment in St. Jude participants in order to help researchers guide treatment for children and young adults with this disease in the future.

  • APX005M, mFOLFOX Chemotherapy, and Radiation Therapy for the Treatment of Stage II-III Rectal Cancer, The INNATE Trial

    This phase II trial investigates how well APX005M, modified (m)FOLFOX chemotherapy regimen (fluorouracil, leucovorin calcium, oxaliplatin), and radiation therapy works in treating patients with rectal cancer. APX005M is a type of immunotherapy called a monoclonal antibody which may help treat cancer by strengthening the immune system. Chemotherapy drugs, such as fluorouracil, leucovorin calcium, and oxaliplatin, 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. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. The addition of APX005M to mFOLFOX (standard of care chemotherapy for rectal cancer) and radiation therapy may help improve response rates and long-term outcomes in treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer patients.

  • Radiation Therapy and Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Stage I-IIIB Rectal Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well patients with stage I-IIIB rectal cancer respond to a short course of radiation therapy followed by chemotherapy. Radiation therapy uses high energy beams to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin, leucovorin, fluorouracil, and capecitabine 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. A combination of radiation therapy and chemotherapy may prevent patients from needing surgery, could delay their need for surgery, or may mean that they need less drastic surgery and could potentially avoid a permanent ostomy (a surgically created connection between the intestine and the abdominal wall that allows for elimination of stool).

  • Preservation of Organs in Participants with Early Rectal Cancer

    This phase II trial studies preservation of organs in patients with early rectal cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin, leucovorin, and calcium fluorouracil, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or stopping them from spreading. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy), and giving them after local excision may kill more tumor cells. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells and allow doctors to save the part of the body where the cancer started.

  • Riluzole in Combination with mFOLFOX6 and Bevacizumab in Treating Patients with Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

    This phase I trial is to find out the best dose, possible benefits, and / or side effects of riluzole and how well it works in combination with standard of care mFOLFOX6 and bevacizumab in treating patients with colorectal cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Riluzole is a well-tolerated oral medication that has demonstrated it may make chemotherapy work better. Chemotherapy drugs, such as oxaliplatin, leucovorin calcium and fluorouracil, work in different ways to stop the growth of [cancer / tumor] cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Bevacizumab is an antibody that targets the blood vessel by blocking the activity of a protein called vascular endothelial growth factor alpha (VEGF-A). It helps to make the mFOLFOX6 more effective. Giving riluzole, mFOLFOX6, and bevacizumab may kill more tumor cells compared to mFOLFOX6 and bevacizumab alone in treating patients with colorectal cancer.

  • Hepatic Arterial Infusion Using Codman Catheter / Synchromed Pump for the Treatment of Unresectable Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases or Unresectable Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma

    This phase I trial studies the side effects of hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) using the Codman catheter / Synchromed pump in treating patients with colorectal cancer that has spread to the liver (metastases) and cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable) or unresectable intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. HAI is a procedure in which chemotherapy drugs are directly delivered to the liver through a pump that is surgically implanted into the liver. This approach can produce higher local concentrations of the infused drug with few systemic side effects. The manufacturer of the main pump device used for HAI terminated production in April 2018. Thus, alternate means of employing HAI need to be devised in order to continue offering this therapy. This trial may help researchers learn about the safety of HAI using a similar pump, the Synchromed II, combined with a Codman vascular catheter.

  • Modified FOLFIRINOX and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for the Treatment of Patients with Non-Metastatic Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well the combination of chemotherapy drugs called FOLFIRINOX (levoleucovorin or leucovorin, 5-fluorouracil, irinotecan and oxaliplatin) followed by stereotactic body radiation therapy works in treating patients with pancreatic cancer that has not spread to other places in the body (non-metastatic) and cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Chemotherapy drugs, such as levoleucovorin or leucovorin, 5-fluorouracil, irinotecan, and oxaliplatin, 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 radiation therapy approach which delivers high dose radiation to a tumor in the body in a single treatment session or up to 5 treatment sessions (one dose per day). Giving chemotherapy with stereotactic body radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells.

  • Different Therapies in Treating Infants With Newly Diagnosed Acute Leukemia

    RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy before a donor stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also helps stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can make an immune response against the body's normal cells. Giving cyclosporine, methotrexate, leucovorin, and antithymocyte globulin before and after transplant may stop this from happening. It is not yet known which treatment regimen is most effective in treating acute leukemia. PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying how well different therapies work in treating infants with newly diagnosed acute leukemia.

  • Intensive Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or Lymphoblastic Lymphoma

    This partially randomized phase II trial studies how well intensive combination chemotherapy works in treating patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia or lymphoblastic lymphoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as daunorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, vincristine sulfate, prednisone, leucovorin calcium, cytarabine, etoposide, and liposomal cytarabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, may induce changes in body’s immune system and may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Biological therapies, such as mercaptopurine, use substances made from living organisms that may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Dietary supplements, such as levocarnitine, may reduce the incidence of liver damage. Pegaspargase, methotrexate, dasatinib and imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving combination chemotherapy with, rituximab, mercaptopurine, levocarnitine, pegaspargase, methotrexate, dasatinib and imatinib mesylate may be an effective treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia or lymphoblastic lymphoma.
