Clinical Trials Using Veliparib

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Veliparib. 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 1-6 of 6
  • Veliparib, Radiation Therapy, and Temozolomide in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Malignant Glioma without H3 K27M or BRAFV600 Mutations

    This phase II trial studies how well veliparib, radiation therapy, and temozolomide work in treating patients with newly diagnosed malignant glioma without H3 K27M or BRAFV600 mutations. Poly adenosine diphosphate (ADP) ribose polymerases (PARPs) are proteins that help repair DNA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as veliparib, can keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can't repair themselves, and they may stop growing. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. 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 veliparib, radiation therapy, and temozolomide may work better in treating patients with newly diagnosed malignant glioma without H3 K27M or BRAFV600 mutations compared to radiation therapy and temozolomide alone.

  • I-SPY 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.

  • Veliparib and Dinaciclib in Treating Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of veliparib and dinaciclib in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment. Veliparib and dinaciclib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Veliparib and Radiation Therapy before Surgery in Treating Patients with Stage IIB-IV Breast Cancer with Incomplete Response to Chemotherapy

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of veliparib when given together with radiation therapy before surgery in treating patients with stage IIB-IV breast cancer with incomplete response to chemotherapy. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving veliparib together with radiation therapy before surgery may kill more tumor cells.

  • Topotecan Hydrochloride and Carboplatin with or without Veliparib in Treating Advanced Myeloproliferative Disorders and Acute Myeloid Leukemia or Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia

    This phase II trial studies how well topotecan hydrochloride and carboplatin with or without veliparib work in treating patients with myeloproliferative disorders that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (advanced), and acute myeloid leukemia or chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as topotecan hydrochloride and carboplatin, 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. Veliparib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving topotecan hydrochloride, carboplatin, and veliparib may work better in treating patients with myeloproliferative disorders and acute myeloid leukemia or chronic myelomonocytic leukemia compared to topotecan hydrochloride and carboplatin alone.

  • Liposomal Irinotecan and Veliparib in Treating Patients with Solid Tumors

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of veliparib when given together with liposomal irinotecan in treating patients with solid tumors. Liposomal irinotecan and veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
