Clinical Trials Using Ziv-Aflibercept
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Ziv-Aflibercept. 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.
Pembrolizumab and Ziv-aflibercept in Treating Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of ziv-aflibercept when given together with pembrolizumab in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body. Ziv-afibercept works by decreasing blood and nutrient supply to the tumor, which may result in shrinking 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 ziv-aflibercept together with pembrolizumab may be a better treatment for patients with advanced solid tumors.

Sapanisertib and Ziv-Aflibercept in Treating Patients with Recurrent Solid Tumors That Are Metastatic or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of sapanisertib and ziv-aflibercept in treating patients with solid tumors that have come back and have spread to another place in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Sapanisertib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Ziv-aflibercept may stop the growth of solid tumors by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth. Giving sapanisertib with ziv-aflibercept may kill more tumor cells.

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy and Aflibercept in Treating Patients with Uveal Melanoma
This phase II trial studies how well stereotactic body radiation therapy and aflibercept work in treating patients with uveal melanoma. Stereotactic body radiation therapy uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method can kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue. Aflibercept may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving stereotactic body radiation therapy followed by aflibercept may work better in treating patients with uveal melanoma.
