Comparing Two Treatment Combinations, Gemcitabine and Nab-Paclitaxel with 5-Fluorouracil, Leucovorin, and Liposomal Irinotecan for Older Patients with Pancreatic Cancer That Has Spread

Pancreatic

This phase II trial compares two treatment combinations: gemcitabine hydrochloride and nab-paclitaxel, or fluorouracil, leucovorin calcium, and liposomal irinotecan in older patients with pancreatic cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride, nab-paclitaxel, fluorouracil, leucovorin calcium, and liposomal irinotecan, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. This study may help doctors find out which treatment combination is better at prolonging life in older patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer.

Nab-Paclitaxel and Gemcitabine Hydrochloride in Treating Teenagers or Young Adults with Recurrent or Refractory Osteosarcoma, Ewing Sarcoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma, or Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase II trial studies how well nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine hydrochloride work in treating teenagers or young adults with osteosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, or soft tissue sarcoma that has come back (recurrent) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Chemotherapy drugs, such as nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.

Study of DF1001 in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

Multiple Cancer Types

DF1001-001 is a study of a new molecule that targets natural killer (NK) cells and T-cell
activation signals to specific receptors on cancer cells. The study will occur in two phases.
The first phase will be a dose escalation phase, enrolling patients with various types of
solid tumors that express human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). Two combination
therapy cohorts will be opened for enrollment, DF1001 + nivolumab and DF1001 + Nab
paclitaxel. The second phase will include a dose expansion using the best dose selected from
the first phase of the study. Multiple cohorts will be opened with eligible patients having
either selected solid tumors, or solid tumors expressing high levels of HER2.

Testing the Ability to Decrease Chemotherapy in Patients with HER2-Positive Breast Cancer Who Have No Remaining Cancer at Surgery after Limited Pre-operative Chemotherapy and HER2-Targeted Therapy

Breast

This clinical trial studies how well paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab work in eliminating further chemotherapy after surgery in patients with HER2-positive stage II-IIIa breast cancer who have no cancer remaining at surgery (either in the breast or underarm lymph nodes) after pre-operative chemotherapy and HER2-targeted therapy. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Trastuzumab is a form of targeted therapy because it works by attaching itself to specific molecules (receptors) on the surface of tumor cells, known as HER2 receptors. When trastuzumab attaches to HER2 receptors, the signals that tell the cells to grow are blocked and the tumor cell may be marked for destruction by the bodys immune system. Pertuzumab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab may enable fewer chemotherapy drugs to be given without compromising patient outcomes compared to the usual treatment.

A Trial to Evaluate Safety and Tolerability of TST001 in Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors

Multiple Cancer Types

This is an open label Phase I/IIa, First in Human trial of TST001, a recombinant humanized
anti-Claudin 18.2 (CLDN18.2) IgG1 monoclonal antibody as monotherapy or in combination with
nivolumab. It is being tested against advanced and/or metastatic solid tumors including
gastric, gastroesophageal junction, pancreatic, Biliary Tract cancers, etc..

Study of Trastuzumab Deruxtecan (T-DXd) vs Investigator's Choice Chemotherapy in HER2-low, Hormone Receptor Positive, Metastatic Breast Cancer

Breast

This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of trastuzumab deruxtecan
compared with investigator's choice chemotherapy in human epidermal growth factor receptor
(HER)2-low, hormone receptor (HR) positive breast cancer patients whose disease has
progressed on endocrine therapy in the metastatic setting.

9-ING-41 in Patients With Advanced Cancers

Multiple Cancer Types

GSK-3 is a potentially important therapeutic target in human malignancies. The Actuate 1801
Phase 1/2 study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 9-ING-41, a potent GSK-3
inhibitor, as a single agent and in combination with cytotoxic agents, in patients with
refractory cancers.
