    Evaluating dostarlimab for treating stage III colon cancer

    This research is focused on the investigation of the effect of dostarlimab on patients with severe, untreated colon cancer (T4N0 or Stage III dMMR/MSI-H). The primary objective is to assess whether dostarlimab yields superior outcomes for the patients in comparison to standard treatments. Patient monitoring will be based on tumor response and the potential impact on their quality of life resulting from the drug or disease progression.

  • Testing relacorilant and nab-paclitaxel for various types of cancer

    The study is being conducted to investigate a new treatment for advanced ovarian, peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer that has been unresponsive to standard treatment. The focus is on assessing whether a specific combination of drugs (Relacorilant and Nab-Paclitaxel) is more effective than using Nab-Paclitaxel alone. The primary objective is to determine if this combination can prolong the period before cancer progression without causing excessive side effects, in comparison to the use of Nab-Paclitaxel alone. Another goal is to evaluate whether the treatment can lead to a reduction in the size of the cancer and prevent further progression for an extended duration. Patients will undergo regular assessments to monitor disease progression and survival. Criteria such as RECIST, a measurement system, and a blood test checking for the presence of CA-125, a substance elevated in cancer patients, will be employed to assess disease progress.

    • Relacorilant
    • Nab-paclitaxel
  • Testing Milvexian’s effectiveness in preventing repeat strokes

    This research trial, called LIBREXIA-STROKE, will test a medication called Milvexian on those who have recently had a stroke or a high-risk ‘mini-stroke’. In its 3rd testing phase, the study will involve a system where the patients won’t know whether they are receiving the actual drug or a substitute with no effect, referred to as a ‘placebo’, to maintain fairness. Milvexian is a medication that can potentially reduce the risk of having another stroke, and this trial aims to observe how effective it is in doing so. The trial will look at when the first stroke happens after starting the trial, if other major heart or limb diseases occur, or if strokes occur in the first 90 days.

  • Comparison of different treatments for follicular lymphoma

    This study involves comparing two treatments for a condition known as follicular or marginal zone lymphoma, both of which are types of cancer affecting lymph cells. The first treatment combines zanubrutinib with an antibody called Anti-CD20, while the second treatment involves lenalidomide and rituximab. These treatments are intended for patients who have not responded or have stopped responding to conventional treatment. One of the primary objectives of the study is to determine which treatment is more effective in preventing the cancer from progressing, referred to as progression-free survival. Additionally, the study aims to assess the impact of these treatments on the patients’ quality of life, evaluating various aspects through questionnaires related to physical and emotional well-being, symptoms, and the ability to perform normal activities.

    • Zanubrutinib
    • Obinutuzumab
    • Lenalidomide
    • Rituximab
  • Study on dazostinag & pembrolizumab for advanced solid tumors

    The purpose of this study is to test a new drug called dazostinag. A study is being conducted to see whether this drug is helpful in adults with advanced forms of solid cancer. Some people are given dazostinag alone, while others are given it with another medicine called pembrolizumab. Scientists’ focus here is on finding out whether these drugs cause any side effects, and finding out what the maximum dose is that people can take without serious side effects. The study consists of two parts, including a dose escalation phase and a dose escalation phase. In the first part, the dose of dazostinag will be gradually increased, given alone or in combination with pembrolizumab. In the second part, Dazostinag will be tested with pembrolizumab and other anticancer drugs. This section will focus on patients with specific cancers that are difficult to remove or have spread to other parts of the body.

  • Study new combination therapy in advanced lung cancer

    This study is about testing a new drug mix to help people with advanced lung cancer (NSCLC) that doesn’t have special gene changes. The research aims to determine whether a combination of three drugs, namely Datopotamab Deruxtecan (Dato-DXd), Durvalumab, and Carboplatin, demonstrates superior efficacy compared to an alternative drug mixture. The people in this study have stage IIIB, IIIC, or IV lung cancer. They will be split in two groups. One group will get Datopotamab Deruxtecan, Durvalumab, and Carboplatin. The other group gets Pembrolizumab and some specific chemo drugs. he primary objective is to assess whether the new three-drug combination can effectively delay cancer growth and extend overall survival time.

    • Datopotamab deruxtecan (Dato-DXd)
    • Pemetrexed
    • Cisplatin
    • Carboplatin

  • Study of drug combinations for advanced lung cancer

    This study is about a new combination of medical treatments, Datopotamab Deruxtecan (Dato-DXd) plus Durvalumab and Carboplatin, intended to help people with severe lung cancer (NSCLC). This type of lung cancer lacks specific alterations in its genes that can be targeted by other forms of treatment. The scientists are testing whether this new combination of medicines can be better than another common treatment combination, Pembrolizumab and platinum-based chemotherapy. The researchers will measure the time people can live without their disease getting worse (Progression Free Survival or PFS) and the total time they survive (Overall Survival or OS) to check which treatment is superior. These periods will be monitored with special criterias set up by the medical community. The study will also observe how long people respond to the treatment (Duration of Response or DoR) and how many have an observable reaction to the treatment (Objective Response Rate or ORR). Additionally, they will be analyzing the concentration of Dato-DXd and other components in the blood to inspect the body’s interaction with this treatment.

  • Study of the effects of Durvalumab and Domvanalimab on non-small cell lung cancer

    This study looks at two drugs – Durvalumab and Domvanalimab – and how they may help people with a type of lung cancer that cannot be removed by surgery. These medicines are given to patients after special treatment combining chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The goal is to find out whether these drugs provide benefits and are safe to use. During the trial, patients will be given the real drug or a placebo (a substance that has no therapeutic effect), without knowing which one they will receive. The study will measure how long it takes for the disease to worsen, how long people live and how many people respond positively to treatment. This clinical trial is testing the effectiveness of Durvalumab and Domvanalimab – two drugs – in the treatment of stage III lung cancer that cannot be surgically removed. After undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy, participants will be given these drugs to assess their safety. The study is double-blind, meaning neither participants nor researchers know who is receiving the actual drug and who is receiving the placebo. The study will monitor whether the cancer gets worse and what the rate of positive reactions to the drugs is. A study is being conducted with two drugs, Durvalumab and Domvanalimab, for patients with advanced forms of lung cancer that cannot be treated with surgery. After undergoing combined chemotherapy and radiation therapy, participants receive these drugs. The study was designed so that neither the patient nor the doctor knew whether the correct drug or a placebo was being administered. The time until the disease worsens, how long participants live and the number of patients who see improvement with the drugs will be measured.
