BRCA 2 Gene Mutation clinical trials at University of California Health

6 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study of the Experimental Medicine Niraparib for Men With High Risk Prostate Cancer

    open to eligible males ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies how well niraparib, when given before surgery, works in treating patients with high risk prostate cancer that has not spread to other parts of the body (localized) and alterations in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair pathways. Niraparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Olaparib In Metastatic Breast Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This research study is for patients with metastatic breast cancer. - Metastatic means that the cancer has spread beyond the breast. In addition, through genetic testing of the blood or tumor, an altered gene has been found that suggests the tumor may not be able to repair its genetic material (DNA) when it becomes damaged. - This aspect of the cancer may cause it to be more sensitive - that is, more effectively killed by certain types of drugs such as the study agent being evaluated in this trial, Olaparib. - Olaparib is a type of drug known as a PARP inhibitor. Some types of breast cancer and ovarian cancer share some basic features that make them sensitive to similar treatments. Information from those other research studies suggests that this drug may help to treat metastatic breast cancer. - This study will evaluate whether olaparib is effective in breast cancer patients whose tumor has a mutation in one of the other genes that function with BRCA1 and BRCA2 to repair damaged DNA .This mutation may have been inherited from a parent, or may have developed only in the tumor. - This study will also evaluate whether olaparib is effective in breast cancer patients whose tumor has a mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 that was acquired by the tumor, but not inherited.

  • A Study of the Experimental Medicine Rucaparib for Recurrent Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This phase II Lung-MAP trial studies how well rucaparib works in treating patients with genomic loss of heterozygosity (LOH) high and/or deleterious BRCA1/2 mutation stage IV non-small cell lung cancer or that has come back. Rucaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • BRCA Founder OutReach (BFOR) Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to learn how to provide BRCA gene testing to a larger number of people as well as to make testing part of a person's regular medical care.

  • Culturally-Informed Counseling in Latinas at High Risk for Hereditary Breast or Ovarian Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This pilot clinical trial studies a culturally-informed counseling intervention in Latinas at high risk for hereditary breast or ovarian cancer. A culturally-informed counseling intervention may be an effective method to help people learn more about their cancer risk.

  • Prospective Research of Outcomes After Salpingo-oophorectomy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    PROSper is a prospective cohort study of 100 women 35-50 years of age with BRCA 1/2 mutations who have elected to either undergo risk reducing salpingo-oophorectomy (RRSO) or nonsurgical management. The investigators will compare the change in cardiovascular health, bone health, sexual function, quality of life, and menopausal symptoms over 3 years of follow-up between women who undergo RRSO (baseline just prior to surgery) and age-matched controls that do not undergo RRSO. The investigators hypothesis is that women who undergo a premature surgical menopause induced by RRSO have worse cardiovascular health and bone health compared with women who do not undergo RRSO.
