Clinical Trials Using Vemurafenib

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Vemurafenib. 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 1-13 of 13
  • Vemurafenib in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, or Histiocytic Disorders with BRAF V600 Mutations (A Pediatric MATCH Treatment Trial)

    This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well vemurafenib works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with BRAF V600 mutations that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment. Vemurafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • PROCLAIM-CX-072: A Trial to Find Safe and Active Doses of an Investigational Drug CX-072 for Patients With Solid Tumors or Lymphomas

    The purpose of this first-in-human study of CX-072 is to characterize the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and antitumor activity of CX-072 administered intravenously (IV) as a single agent or in combination with ipilimumab or vemurafenib in adult subjects with advanced or recurrent solid tumors or lymphomas. PROCLAIM-CX-072: PRObody CLinical Assessment In Man CX-072 clinical trial CX-072 is a Probody™ therapeutic directed against PD-L1 (programmed cell death ligand 1). Probody therapeutics are proteolytically-activatable antibodies (Abs) designed to widen the therapeutic index by minimizing drug interaction with normal tissue while retaining anti-tumor activity. Probody therapeutics are "masked" to attenuate binding to target in healthy tissue but can become "unmasked" in the tumor microenvironment by tumor-specific protease activity.

  • TAPUR: Testing the Use of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Approved Drugs That Target a Specific Abnormality in a Tumor Gene in People With Advanced Stage Cancer

    The purpose of the study is to learn from the real world practice of prescribing targeted therapies to patients with advanced cancer whose tumor harbors a genomic variant known to be a drug target or to predict sensitivity to a drug. NOTE: Due to character limits, the arms section does NOT include all TAPUR Study relevant biomarkers. For additional information, contact TAPUR@asco.org, or if a patient, your nearest participating TAPUR site (see participating centers).

  • Vemurafenib and Obinutuzumab in Treating Patients with Previously Untreated Classical Hairy Cell Leukemia

    This phase II trial studies how well vemurafenib and obinutuzumab work in treating patients with previously untreated classical hairy cell leukemia. Vemurafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as obinutuzumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving vemurafenib and obinutuzumab may work better in treating patients with previously untreated hairy cell leukemia.

  • Vemurafenib, Cobimetinib, and Atezolizumab in Treating Patients with High-Risk Stage III Melanoma

    This early phase I pilot trial studies how well vemurafenib, cobimetinib, and atezolizumab work in treating patients with high-risk stage III melanoma. Vemurafenib and cobimetinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving vemurafenib, cobimetinib, and atezolizumab may work better in treating high-risk stage III melanoma.

  • Vemurafenib and Pembrolizumab in Treating Stage III-IV Melanoma That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of vemurafenib and to see how well it works when given together with pembrolizumab in treating stage III-IV melanoma that cannot be removed by surgery. Vemurafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may block tumor growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. Giving vemurafenib and pembrolizumab together may work better in treating patients with stage III-IV melanoma that cannot be removed by surgery.

  • Vemurafenib and Cobimetinib in Treating Participants with BRAF Mutant Stage IIIC-IV Melanoma

    This pilot early phase I trial studies how well vemurafenib and cobimetinib work in treating participants with BRAF mutant stage IIIC-IV melanoma. Vemurafenib and cobimetinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Atezolizumab with Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Anaplastic or Poorly Differentiated Thyroid Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well atezolizumab in combination with chemotherapy works in treating patients with anaplastic or poorly differentiated thyroid cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Vemurafenib and cobimetinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Drugs such as nab-paclitaxel and paclitaxel 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. This trial is being done to see if atezolizumab in combination with chemotherapy works better in treating patients with anaplastic or poorly differentiated thyroid cancer compared to standard treatments.

  • Genomic Based Assignment of Therapy in Advanced Urothelial Carcinoma

    Background: Advanced urothelial cancer has no cure. But only a few chemotherapy drugs have been tested for it. The Co-eXpression ExtrapolatioN (COXEN) model predicts if cells respond to treatment. It may also help determine which drugs fight urothelial cancer based on the characteristics of a tumor. Researchers want to test if this model can choose the best therapy for advanced urothelial cancer within 3 weeks and how tumors respond to the next best therapy. Objective: To test if the COXEN model can choose the best therapy for advanced urothelial cancer within 3 weeks. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older whose urothelial cancer has spread after at least 1 line of chemotherapy Design: Participants will be screened with medical history, physical exam, blood and urine tests, and tumor scans. Participants will provide a tumor sample from a previous surgery and a new biopsy. A needle will remove a small piece of tumor. Participants will repeat screening tests, plus have an EKG and scan. For the scan, they will get an injection of radioactive drug. They will lie in a machine that takes pictures. Participants will take the drugs assigned by the COXEN model. They will have visits every 2 3 weeks. These will include blood and urine tests. Participants will have tumor scans every 8 9 weeks. Participants may have another biopsy. Participants will take the drugs until they can t tolerate the side effects or their cancer worsens. They may be assigned to a second COXEN therapy. Participants will have a follow-up visit 4 5 weeks after their last drug dose. Participants will be contacted by phone every few months until death. ...

  • Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Pediatric Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas, or Histiocytic Disorders (The Pediatric MATCH Screening Trial)

    This Pediatric MATCH screening and multi-sub-study phase II trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in pediatric patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, or histiocytic disorders that have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and / or for which no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong survival. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic changes or abnormalities (mutations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic mutation, and may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors or non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
