    Infusion of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes into the liver of melanoma patients with liver metastases

    This is a clinical trial for a new type of treatment — tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL). This study will test whether this treatment can help fight melanoma that has spread to the liver. Tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) are immune system cells that accumxulate around and inside the tumor. They can recognize and attack cancer cells, as well as prevent cancer cells from spreading to other organs. Scientists plan to multiply them in the laboratory and then introduce them back into the patient’s body through the main artery supplying the liver.

    Before this, patients will receive a single dose of melphalan chemotherapy to help prepare their body. After lymphocyte infusion (TIL), patients will also receive interleukin-2, a protein that helps lymphocytes do their job better. The goal is to see if this treatment is safe and effective. Doctors will watch closely for any side effects or serious problems that may arise during treatment.

  • Study of the drug combination mRNA-4157/V940 and Pembrolizumab in the treatment of melanoma

    The aim of this clinical trial is to test whether a new drug called mRNA-4157/V940 in combination with pembrolizumab can help prevent the recurrence of melanoma in people who have already had it. Currently, mRNA-4157/V940 is what is called “individualized neoantigen therapy,” which means it is a therapy created specifically for each patient based on their cancer cells. Doctors give this drug along with pembrolizumab, a drug that helps the immune system fight cancer cells.

    The main goal of this study is to determine whether taking V940 and pembrolizumab together is more effective in preventing melanoma recurrence than taking pembrolizumab alone. Researchers will closely monitor how long it takes for the cancer to return or spread. The study will last for approximately 74 months.

  • Study of belzutifan for treating advanced cancers

    This clinical trial aim is to test out a new drug called belzutifan, also known as MK-6482 or WELIREG™. It’s a pill patient can take once a day, and the main goal is to see if it can shrink or get rid of tumors in folks with certain types of cancer.

    The cancers the researchers are looking at are pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma, which are tumors that start in the adrenal glands or nervous system. Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, tumors related to von Hippel-Lindau disease, advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumors, and other solid tumors with certain genetic changes that involve a protein called HIF-2α, there will be also tested.

    The big thing the researchers are  keeping an eye on is the objective response rate, which means how many folks see their tumors shrink or disappear completely while taking this drug. The researchers will be watching closely for any side effects too, of course, to make sure this new medicine is safe.

  • Study on new combination therapy for aggressive lymphoma

    This study is about a less common but severe form of cancer known as Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL). It is testing if a new medication called epcoritamab, given with a mix of other commonly used cancer medicines, can help control the disease better. These other medicines include rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin hydrochloride, vincristine, and prednisone, which are often collectively referred to as R-CHOP. The study includes about 900 adults from around the world who have recently been diagnosed with this type of lymphoma. They will be split into two groups. One group will get epcoritamab with R-CHOP and then continue with epcoritamab. The other group will get R-CHOP followed by rituximab. Doctors will carefully watch for changes in the disease and for any side effects. There will be many checks on health, including medical exams, blood tests, questionnaires, and monitoring of any side effects.

  • Testing a new inhaled drug for pulmonary arterial hypertension

    This study focuses on the efficiency and safety of a new inhaled drug – MK-5475 – for patients suffering from Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). The study is divided into two parts: phase 2 and phase 3. In phase 2, the researchers will compare three different doses of MK-5475 with a placebo over a base period of 12 weeks. The goal is to find out if any of the doses can decrease the patient’s pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), which is the resistance that the heart must overcome to pump blood through the lungs. In Phase 3 of the study, the best performing dose from Phase 2 will be used to confirm its long-term effectiveness, safety, and tolerability over a 12-week base period with a follow-up period of up to five years. The focus is to see if this dose is better than a placebo in improving the patient’s walking distance over 6 minutes. The study aims at improving the quality of life and physical health of PAH patients with the help of the new drug.

  • Testing safety and effects of telisotuzumab and docetaxel in Lung Cancer patients

    This study is for adults who have been treated before for a type of lung cancer called non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The aim is to see if a new drug, called telisotuzumab vedotin, works better and is as safe as a common drug called docetaxel. In this study, cancer activity and any side-effects will be observed closely. The treatment will be given by a drip into a vein.The researchers will randomly decide whether each participant will get telisotuzumab vedotin or docetaxel, with an equal chance of getting either drug. While in the study, each person will have regular hospital or clinic visits to check how they are doing with tests and questionnaires.

  • 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.

  • 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.
