Bone Cancer clinical trials at UC Health
7 in progress, 4 open to new patients

  • A Phase IV Post Approval Clinical Study of ExAblate Treatment of Metastatic Bone Tumors for the Palliation of Pain

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The study hypotheses is that the proportion of patients experiencing clinically significant pain relief will be at least 30% greater than the proportion experiencing worsening pain.

  • Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Ganitumab in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Metastatic Ewing Sarcoma

    “Study comparing combination chemotherapy with and without immunotherapy to treat Metastatic Ewing Sarcoma”

    open to eligible people ages up to 50 years

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well combination chemotherapy with or without ganitumab works in treating patients with newly diagnosed Ewing sarcoma that has spread to other parts of the body. Monoclonal antibodies, such as ganitumab, may block tumor growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vincristine sulfate, doxorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, ifosfamide, and etoposide, 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. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without ganitumab in treating patients with newly diagnosed Ewing sarcoma.

  • Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY)

    open to eligible people ages 12 years and up

    The Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY) trial is the first ever international multi-center randomized controlled trial in bone cancer surgery. In order to avoid amputation for bone cancer in the leg, complex limb-saving operations are performed. However, infections with devastating complications following surgery are common. Surgeons from across the world will randomize patients to receive either short- or long-duration antibiotic regimens after surgery with the goal of identifying the best regimen to reduce these infections.

  • Study looking at targeted chemotherapy and immunotherapy in treating patients with advanced/metastatic genitourinary tumors

    “Targeted chemotherapy and immunotherapy medicine with or without additional immunotherapy medicine to treat bladder/urothelial cancer”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best doses of cabozantinib-s-malate and nivolumab with or without ipilimumab in treating patients with genitourinary (genital and urinary organ) tumors that have spread to other places in the body. Cabozantinib-s-malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. It is not yet known whether giving cabozantinib-s-malate and nivolumab alone or with ipilimumab works better in treating patients with genitourinary tumors.

  • ExAblate Conformal Bone System Treatment of Metastatic Bone Tumors for the Palliation of Pain

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    A study to evaluate the safety and initial effectiveness of the ExAblate 2100 Conformal Bone System in the treatment of pain resulting from metastatic bone tumors.

  • S0702: Osteonecrosis of the Jaw in Patients With Cancer Receiving Zoledronic Acid for Bone Metastases

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    RATIONALE: Gathering information about how often osteonecrosis of the jaw occurs in patients receiving zoledronic acid for bone metastases may help doctors learn more about the disease and provide the best follow-up care.

    PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying osteonecrosis of the jaw in patients with cancer who are receiving zoledronic acid for bone metastases.

  • Survivorship Care in Reducing Symptoms in Young Adult Cancer Survivors

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized clinical trial studies survivorship care in reducing symptoms in young adult cancer survivors. Survivorship care programs that identify the needs of young adult cancer survivors and ways to support them through the years after treatment may help reduce symptoms, such as pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, depression, and distress, in young adult cancer survivors.
