Olaparib in Treating Participants with Metastatic or Unresectable Urothelial Cancer with DNA Damage Response Gene Alterations

This phase II trial studies how well olaparib works in treating participants with urothelial cancer with deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) damage response gene alterations that has spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Study of Pembrolizumab Given Prior to Surgery and in Combination With Radiotherapy Given Post-surgery for Advanced Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (MK-3475-689)

This is a randomized, active-controlled, open-label study of pembrolizumab (Pembro) given prior to surgery and pembrolizumab in combination with standard of care radiotherapy (with or without cisplatin), as post-surgical therapy in treatment naïve participants with newly diagnosed Stage III / IVA, resectable, locoregionally advanced, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (LA-HNSCC). The primary hypothesis is that pembrolizumab given before surgery and after surgery in combination with radiotherapy (with or without cisplatin) improves major pathological response and event-free survival compared to radiotherapy (with or without cisplatin) alone.

Anetumab Ravtansine in Treating Patients with Mesothelin Positive, Locally Advanced, or Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

Pancreatic

This phase II trial studies how well anetumab ravtansine works in treating patients with mesothelin positive pancreatic cancer that has spread to other places in the body and cannot be removed by surgery. Monoclonal antibodies, such as anetumab ravtansine, may find tumor cells and help kill them.

Methoxyamine, Cisplatin, and Pemetrexed Disodium in Treating Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors or Mesothelioma That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery or Mesothelioma That Is Refractory to Pemetrexed Disodium and Cisplatin or Carboplatin

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and the best dose of methoxyamine when given together with cisplatin and pemetrexed disodium and to see how well it works in treating patients with solid tumors or mesothelioma that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with standard treatment (advanced), or mesothelioma that does not respond to pemetrexed disodium and cisplatin or carboplatin (refractory). Methoxyamine may shrink the tumor and may also help cisplatin and pemetrexed disodium work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drugs. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and pemetrexed disodium, 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. Giving methoxyamine together with cisplatin and pemetrexed disodium may be a better treatment for solid tumors or mesothelioma than methoxyamine and pemetrexed disodium.

Cisplatin and Gemcitabine Hydrochloride with or without ATR Kinase Inhibitor M6620 in Treating Patients with Metastatic Urothelial Cancer

Urologic

This randomized phase II trial studies how well cisplatin and gemcitabine hydrochloride with or without ATR kinase inhibitor M6620 works in treating patients with urothelial cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin 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. ATR kinase inhibitor M6620 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known if cisplatin and gemcitabine hydrochloride work better alone or with ATR kinase inhibitor M6620 in treating patients with urothelial cancer.

Sapanisertib in Treating Patients with Locally Advanced or Metastatic Bladder Cancer with TSC1 and / or TSC2 Mutations

Bladder

This pilot phase II trial studies how well sapanisertib works in treating patients with bladder cancer that has spread from where it started to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced) or other places in the body (metastatic) with tuberous sclerosis (TSC)1 and / or TSC2 mutations (changes in deoxyribonucleic acid [DNA]). Sapanisertib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Olaparib with or without Atezolizumab in Treating Patients with Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-HER2-Positive Breast Cancer

This randomized phase II trial studies how well olaparib with or without atezolizumab work in treating patients with non-HER2-positive breast cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the tumor, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. It is not known whether giving olaparib with or without atezolizumab will work better in patients with non-HER2-positive breast cancer.

Long Term Follow-up for Early Detection of Lung Cancer in Current or Former Smokers

Lung

This research trial studies the long term follow-up for early detection of lung cancer in current or former smokers. Following up on smokers by collecting and analyzing specimens in the laboratory, performing chest computed tomography (CT) scans, as well as reviewing medical records may help doctors detect lung cancer at an earlier stage.

Tamoxifen Citrate or Letrozole with or without Palbociclib in Treating Patients with Stage I-III Invasive Breast Cancer before Surgery

Breast

This phase II clinical trial studies how well tamoxifen citrate or letrozole with or without palbociclib work in treating patients with stage I-III invasive breast cancer before surgery. Antihormone therapies, such as tamoxifen citrate and letrozole, may lessen the amount of estrogen made by the body. Palbociclib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether giving tamoxifen citrate or letrozole with or without palbociclib may work better in treating patients with stage I-III invasive breast cancer.

High-Dose Trivalent Influenza Vaccine or Standard-Dose Quadrivalent Inactivated Influenza Vaccine in Treating Adult Stem Cell Transplant Recipients

This randomized phase II studies the side effects of high-dose trivalent influenza vaccine or standard-dose quadrivalent inactivated influenza and how well they work in treating adult patients undergoing stem cell transplant. Season influenza can cause more severe infections in patients who have had a stem cell transplant since their immune system doesn’t work as well. Influenza vaccine may provide better protection against flu in adults.
