  • Olaparib for Treatment of Metastatic Kidney Cancer in Patients with DNA Repair Gene Mutations, the ORCHID Study

    This phase II trial studies how well olaparib works in treating patients with kidney cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) and have mutations in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair genes. It will also examine if olaparib is safe in these patients. PARPs are proteins that help repair damage to DNA, the genetic material that serves as the body’s instruction book. Changes (mutations) in DNA can cause tumor cells to grow quickly and out of control. PARP inhibitors like olaparib have been shown to keep PARP from working, so tumor cells may not be able to repair themselves, and may-stop growing.

  • Olaparib in People With Malignant Mesothelioma

    Background: The drug olaparib may stop cancer cells from fixing damage to their DNA. It has been approved to treat certain cancers in people that were born with a mutation in the BRCA gene. It has not been approved for treating mesothelioma. But some people with mesothelioma have mutations in a gene, BAP1 related to BRCA. Researchers want to see if olaparib can work in patients with mutations in this gene. They also want to see if works on mutations in other genes or patients without any mutations. They want to see if olaparib causes mesothelioma tumors to shrink. Objective: To study the effect of olaparib on mesothelioma. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older with malignant mesothelioma that has already been treated Design: Participants will be screened with Sample of tumor tissue or fluid Medical history Physical exam Blood, heart, and urine tests Scans and x-rays Participants will give blood and tissue samples. These will be genetically tested. The study will be done in 21-day cycles. Participants will take tables of the study drug 2 times each day. They will get information on what food and drugs to avoid during the study. They will get information about birth control. They will keep a diary of doses and symptoms. Participants will have blood and urine tests and scans every few weeks. Participants will be told any important genetic testing results. Participants will stay in the study until their disease gets worse or the participant or their doctor chooses to stop it. About 30 days after stopping the study drug, participants will have a follow-up visit. They will have a medical history, physical exam, blood tests, and scans. Some participants will continue to have scans every 6 weeks. ...

  • Testosterone and Olaparib in Treating Patients with Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well testosterone (enanthate or cypionate) and olaparib work in treating patients with prostate cancer that has progressed despite hormonal therapy. Hormonal therapy, such as leuprolide, may lessen the amount of male sex hormones made by the body. In patients that have developed progressive cancer in spite of standard hormonal treatment (i.e. castration-resistant prostate cancer), administering testosterone may result in regression of tumors by causing DNA damage in cancer cells that have adapted to low testosterone conditions. Olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes involved in repairing DNA damage. Therefore, giving testosterone and olaparib together may work better in treating castration-resistant prostate cancer by generating DNA damage that the cancer cell is unable to repair.

  • Olaparib, Cabazitaxel, Carboplatin, and Prednisone in Treating Patients with Metastatic Prostate Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well olaparib, cabazitaxel, carboplatin, and prednisone work in treating patients with prostate cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cabazitaxel, carboplatin, and prednisone, 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 olaparib, cabazitaxel, carboplatin, and prednisone may work better in treating patients with prostate cancer.

  • Olaparib and High-Dose Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Lymphomas Undergoing Stem Cell Transplant

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of olaparib when given together with high-dose chemotherapy in treating patients with lymphomas that have come back (relapsed) or does not treatment (refractory) and are undergoing stem cell transplant. PARPs are proteins that help repair DNA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as olaparib, can keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can't repair themselves, and they may stop growing. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vorinostat, gemcitabine, busulfan, and melphalan, 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. Rituximab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving olaparib and high-dose chemotherapy together may work better in treating patients with relapsed / refractory lymphomas undergoing stem cell transplant than with chemotherapy alone.

  • Testing the Addition of an Anticancer Drug, Olaparib, to the Usual Chemotherapy (Temozolomide) for Advanced Neuroendocrine Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well the addition of olaparib to the usual treatment, temozolomide, works in treating patients with neuroendocrine cancer (pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma) that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) or cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). PARPs are proteins that help repair DNA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as olaparib, can keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can't repair themselves, and they may stop growing. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, 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 olaparib with temozolomide may shrink or stabilize the cancer in patients with pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma better than temozolomide alone.
