    Study on customized therapy for advanced solid tumors

    The research study, now in its second phase, aims to examine if particular treatments, or treatment combinations, are safe and useful in treating certain hard-to-remove or spreading tumors. These treatments are personalized, chosen depending on certain genetic changes detected in a person’s tumor. It will take about 4 weeks to see if the treatment is successful. As part of the study, patients will have to answer some questions about their physical, emotional, mental, and social health, which will help paint a clear picture of their overall quality of life. Lastly, any negative impacts causes by the treatment are taken note of and classified according to their severity.

  • 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.

  • Comparing new drug-Cytarabine Danuorubicin with standard chemotheraphy in adults with Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    This study is comparing two types of strong medicine, or ‘chemotherapy’, used to treat a disease called Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). This disease can sometimes be harder to treat in some patients due to their genetics. In this study, some people will get the usual strong medicine, and some people will get a new type of strong medicine called CPX-351 (Cytarabine and Danuorubicin). The researchers will also look at who might get fully or almost fully better from the disease.This trial is investigating how a new kind of very strong drug, CPX-351, might work compared to the usual strong drug treatment for a blood cancer called Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). These drugs are used when someone has recently found out they have AML, and their body has certain genetic markers making it harder for usual treatments to work. This trial is also looking at different degrees of recovery. The treatments may work differently based on people’s genes.

  • Study of Dato-DXd and durvalumab in persistent triple-negative breast cancer

    This trial is about testing a combination of new treatments for triple-negative breast cancer which hasn’t fully responded to the first line of treatment. The new treatment includes a drug called Dato-DXd and a known drug called Durvalumab, both administered individually, or as a combination. This is compared to an already established treatment recommended by the doctor. The researchers are mainly interested in delaying the return of the cancer, and if the new drug with or without Durvalumab does a better job at this than the doctor-recommended treatment. Along with this main goal, the trial will also monitor how these treatments affect patients’ routine activities, their well-being, their levels of fatigue, the amount of Dato-DXd and related components present in the body, and any side effects and potential risks associated with these treatments.

  • Dato-DXd versus Standard Chemotherapy in Advanced Triple-negative Breast Cancer Study

    This clinical trial investigates a new treatment, Dato-DXd, compared to standard chemotherapy for patients with triple-negative breast cancer that is locally recurrent, inoperable, or metastatic and not suitable for PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor therapy. The study, open to adults, aims to assess the treatment’s effectiveness and safety through random assignment to either Dato-DXd or investigator-chosen chemotherapy. The trial seeks 600 participants and involves regular monitoring of health and progression of the disease. It emphasizes patient eligibility based on specific health criteria and the nature of their breast cancer.

  • Testing a new trio of drugs for advanced and metastatic breast cancer

    This study, known as CAPItello-292, is testing a new combination of drugs to see if it can help treat advanced or spreading breast cancer. The drugs include one called capivasertib along with two others known as CDK4/6 inhibitors and another drug called fulvestrant. The study wants to see how well these work together and how safe they are. Firstly, they need to decide on the best dose of these drugs to use together. Then, the main part of the study will compare these drugs with the usual treatment – either of the CDK4/6 inhibitors with fulvestrant — to see which is better. Scientists will check the blood of the patients to see how much of the drugs are present. They also want to see how many people have side effects and how severe these are. Patients’ health will also be monitored, including heart tests, blood tests and checking vital signs. The ultimate goal is to see if this new treatment can slow down the growth of the cancer, or even shrink it. In simpler words, this is a study for people with a type of advanced breast cancer. It’s testing three drugs together — capivasertib, a CDK4/6 inhibitor, and fulvestrant. This study is made up of two parts. The first part is to decide on the right amount of these drugs to give at the same time. Then, they’ll test this against the usual treatment to see if it’s better. They’ll use blood tests to check how much of the drugs are in the body and will carefully watch for any side effects. They’ll also keep a close eye on people’s health overall. The main aim is to see if this new combination can stop the cancer from getting worse. The CAPItello-292 trial is aimed at patients with serious breast cancer that has started to spread. In this research, a new blend of three medicines, capivasertib, a CDK4/6 inhibitor, and fulvestrant, is being evaluated. First, researchers want to figure out the optimal dosing of these drugs when taken together. Then they’ll compare this combination to the standard treatment to see if it provides any additional benefits. They’ll take blood tests to track the amount of medication and continuously monitor for any potential side effects. The end goal is to see if this new drug mixture can slow or even decrease the growth of the cancer.

  • The effectiveness of the drug cemiplimab in patients with cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma

    The scope of this research investigation is to study the effects of a drug, cemiplimab, given after surgery and radiation therapy in patients with a high risk of skin cancer recurrence. Cemiplimab is a type of antibody medication that targets proteins involved in cancer. It boosts the immune system to fight cancer cells more effectively. The major focus of this study is to understand if this drug can prevent the return of cutaneous squamous cell cancer post-surgery and radiation. Currently, there’s no confirmed treatment to stop high-risk cancers from coming back after surgery and radiation. Investigating cemiplimab may help us find a solution to this issue. The study involves two parts: in part 1, participants will receive either the study drug or placebo through an intravenous infusion periodically. This part includes a treatment period and follow-up session. Part 2 is optional and presents a possibility for the participant to receive the study drug if the cancer reoccurs.
