    Location: 7 locations

  • Cell Therapy (Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes) for the Treatment of Locally Advanced, Metastatic, or Recurrent Solid Cancers

    This phase II trial studies how well cell therapy (with tumor infiltrating lymphocytes) works for the treatment of solid cancer that has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced), has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic), or has come back (recurrent). This trial involves taking cells called lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) from patients' tumors, growing them in the laboratory in large numbers, and then giving the cells back to the patient. These cells are called tumor infiltrating lymphocytes and the therapy is called cell therapy. Giving chemotherapy drugs before the cells may temporarily suppress the immune system to improve the chances that the tumor fighting cells will be able to survive in the body. Giving aldesleukin after the cell administration may help the tumor fighting cells stay alive longer. Giving tumor fighting cells (tumor infiltrating lymphocytes) followed by aldesleukin may cause the cancer to shrink.

  • Modified Immune Cells (LN-145) and Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients with Unresectable or Metastatic Transitional Cell Cancer Who Have Failed Cisplatin-Based Chemotherapy

    This phase II trial studies how well modified immune cells (LN-145) and pembrolizumab work in treating patients with transitional cell cancer that cannot be removed by surgery or has spread to other places in the body and have failed cisplatin-based chemotherapy. LN-145 is made up of specialized immune cells called lymphocytes or T cells that are taken from a patient's tumor and infused back into the patient to attack the tumor. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving LN-145 may help control transitional cell bladder cancer when given together with pembrolizumab.

  • Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes and Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Metastatic Melanoma

    This early phase I trial studies the side effects and how well tumor infiltrating lymphocytes with chemotherapy work in treating patients with melanoma that has spread to other places in the body. Specific cells, such as tumor infiltrating lymphocytes developed from the immune cells found within a patients tumor masses may help to target tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide and fludarabine phosphate, 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 tumor infiltrating lymphocyte and chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with melanoma.

  • Cyclophosphamide, Fludarabine, Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes, and Aldesleukin in Treating Participants with Metastatic Uveal Melanoma

    This phase II trial studies how well cyclophosphamide, fludarabine, tumor infiltrating lymphocytes, and aldesleukin work in treating participants with uveal melanoma that has spread to other places in the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide and fludarabine, 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. Tumor infiltrating lymphocytes may be an effective treatment for uveal melanoma. Aldesleukin may stimulate white blood cells to kill uveal melanoma cells. Giving cyclophosphamide, fludarabine, tumor infiltrating lymphocytes, and aldesleukin may kill more tumor cells.

  • LN-145 in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Ovarian Cancer, Osteosarcoma, or Other Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcomas

    This phase II trial studies how well autologous tumor infiltrating lymphocytes LN-145 (LN-145) works in treating patients with ovarian cancer, osteosarcoma, or other bone and soft tissue sarcomas that do not respond to treatment (refractory) or that has come back (relapsed). LN-145 is made by collecting and growing specialized white blood cells (called T-cells) that are collected from the patient's tumor. The T cells may specifically recognize, target, and kill the tumor cells.

  • Gene-Modified T cells with or without Decitabine in Treating Patients with Advanced Malignancies Expressing NY-ESO-1

    This phase I / IIa trial studies the side effects and best dose of gene-modified T cells when given with or without decitabine, and to see how well they work in treating patients with malignancies expressing cancer-testis antigens 1 (NY-ESO-1) gene that have spread to other places in the body. A T cell is a type of immune cell that can recognize and kill abnormal cells of the body. Placing a modified gene for NY-ESO-1 into the patients' T cells in the laboratory and then giving them back to the patient may help the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells that express NY-ESO-1. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as decitabine, 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. It is not yet known whether giving gene-modified T cells with or without decitabine works better in treating patients with malignancies expressing NY-ESO-1.

  • Genetically Modified T-Cells Followed by Aldesleukin in Treating Patients with Stage III-IV Melanoma

    This pilot phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of genetically modified T-cells followed by aldesleukin in treating patients with stage III-IV melanoma. T-cells are a type of white blood cell that help the body fight infections. Genes that may help the T-cells recognize melanoma cells are placed into the T-cells in the laboratory. Adding these genes to the T cells may help them kill more tumor cells when they are put back in the body. Aldesleukin may enhance this effect by stimulating white blood cells to kill more melanoma cells.

  • Genetically Modified Therapeutic Autologous Lymphocytes Followed by Aldesleukin in Treating Patients with Stage III or Metastatic Melanoma

    This phase I / II trial studies how well genetically modified therapeutic autologous lymphocytes (patient's own white blood cells) followed by aldesleukin work in treating patients with stage III melanoma or melanoma that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Placing chemokine (C-X-C motif) receptor 2 (CXCR2) and nerve growth factor receptor (NGFR) into lymphocytes (white blood cells) may help the body build an immune response to kill melanoma cells. Aldesleukin may enhance this effect by stimulating white blood cells to kill more melanoma cells. Giving genetically modified therapeutic autologous lymphocytes together with aldesleukin may be a better treatment for melanoma.

  • Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes and High-Dose Aldesleukin with or without Autologous Dendritic Cells in Treating Patients with Metastatic Melanoma

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well therapeutic tumor infiltrating lymphocytes and high-dose aldesleukin with or without autologous dendritic cells work in treating patients with melanoma that has spread to other areas of the body. Vaccines made from a person's tumor cells and special blood cells (dendritic cells) may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. Aldesleukin may stimulate the white blood cells to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether therapeutic tumor infiltrating lymphocytes and high-dose aldesleukin are more effective when given together with or without dendritic cells in shrinking or slowing the growth of melanoma. The clinical benefits of receiving tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in combination with the B-Raf proto-oncogene, serine / threonine kinase (BRAF) inhibitor will be studied, in patients who have progressive disease (PD) with using the BRAF inhibitor prior to TIL treatment. Leptomeningeal disease (LMD) is unfortunately a common development in patients with melanoma, with an extremely poor prognosis, translating into an overall survival of only weeks. With the novel approach of combining intrathecal TILs and intrathecal interleukin (IL)-2, researchers hope to induce long term disease stabilization or remission of LMD.
