    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.

  • A study of cabozantinib in the treatment of advanced adrenocortical carcinoma

    This trial is focused on a medication called Cabozantinib-s-malate for patients with Advanced Adrenocortical Carcinoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer that affects the adrenal glands.

    The study is designed to explore the effectiveness and safety of Cabozantinib, which is taken orally at a dose of 60 mg daily. This medication has shown promise in preliminary studies, where it helped some patients by either partially reducing the cancer or stabilizing it for four months or longer.

    The main goal of this trial is to see how well patients do after 4 months of treatment with Cabozantinib, specifically looking at whether their cancer has progressed or not. This is what doctors call progression-free survival.

    This trial is an opportunity for patients with advanced Adrenocortical Carcinoma to try a new treatment option that could potentially help manage their disease better than current therapies. It’s an open-label, phase II study, which means both the researchers and participants know what treatment is being given, and it’s at a stage where the focus is on evaluating the effectiveness and safety of the medication for a specific condition.

    • Cabozantinib-s-malate
  • Use of tucatinib in combination therapy for HER2-positive breast cancer

    This study examines whether tucatinib, combined with other medications, is more effective than a placebo in treating HER2-positive breast cancer. The research will also identify any side effects from the drug combination. Participants in this study have advanced breast cancer that is either unresectable (cannot be surgically removed) or metastatic (spread throughout the body). Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either tucatinib or a placebo, without knowing which one they are receiving. This method ensures the study’s fairness and accuracy. Additionally, all participants will receive trastuzumab and pertuzumab, two drugs effective against this cancer type. These will be administered every 21 days, either intravenously or subcutaneously, depending on the specific drug and combination used. The study has two main groups: one receiving a placebo and the other tucatinib, both alongside trastuzumab and pertuzumab.

    • Pertuzumab
    • Tucatinib
    • Trastuzumab
  • 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.

    • Dazostinag
    • Platinum
    • Pembrolizumab
    • 5-Fluorouracil
  • Study of new drugs in acute lymphoblastic leukemia

    This clinical trial focuses on improving treatment strategies for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in a diverse age group, from infants to young adults up to 45 years old. The study combines standard treatments with new drugs, for example, Inotuzumab Ozogamicin and Blinatumomab. The trial aims to tailor treatment to individual patient needs and reduce toxicity while maintaining treatment quality. By carefully monitoring event- and disease-free survival rates, as well as minimal residual disease responses, the trial aims to improve the standard of care for ALL and improve both survival outcomes and patient quality of life.

    • Inotuzumab Ozogamicin
    • 6-tioguanine
    • Blinatumomab
    • Imatinib
    • Dexamethasone
    • Vincristine
    • Doxorubicin
  • Exploring sacituzumab govitecan for HER2-negative breast cancer care

    This study is evaluating a new treatment for patients with a certain type of breast cancer (HER2-negative) who have not had a complete response to initial chemotherapy. Participants are randomly assigned to receive the investigational drug sacituzumab govitecan or a treatment of their physician’s choice, which may be another type of chemotherapy with capecitabinalub, carboplatin or cisplatin. The study is designed to compare the effectiveness of these approaches in preventing cancer recurrence. Patients may also receive hormone therapy if needed. Patients’ safety and response to treatment are being closely monitored throughout the study.

    • Sacituzumab govitecan
    • Carboplatin
    • Cisplatin
    • Capecitabine
