BRCA 2 Gene Mutation clinical trials at UC Health
10 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

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

    open to all eligible people

    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

    open to eligible people ages 25 years and up

    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.

  • 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 Evaluating Talazoparib (BMN 673), a PARP Inhibitor, in Advanced and/or Metastatic Breast Cancer Patients With BRCA Mutation (EMBRACA Study)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this open-label, 2:1 randomized phase III trial is to compare the safety and efficacy of talazoparib (also known as BMN 673) versus protocol-specific physician's choice in patients who have locally advanced and/or metastatic breast cancer with germline BRCA mutations.

  • 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.

  • Lung-MAP: Talazoparib in Treating Patients With HRRD Positive Recurrent Stage IV Squamous Cell Lung Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies how well talazoparib works in treating patients with homologous recombination repair deficiency (HRRD) positive stage IV squamous cell lung cancer that has come back after previous treatment. Talazoparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Niraparib Before Surgery in Treating Patients With High Risk Localized Prostate Cancer and DNA Damage Response Defects

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    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.

  • 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.

  • The Study Evaluating Efficacy And Tolerability Of Veliparib in Combination With Temozolomide or In Combination With Carboplatin and Paclitaxel Versus Placebo in Subjects With BRCA1 and BRCA2 Mutation and Metastatic Breast Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The Study Evaluating Efficacy And Tolerability of Veliparib in Combination with Temozolomide or Veliparib/Placebo in Combination with Carboplatin and Paclitaxel in Subjects with locally recurrent Breast Cancer not amenable to therapy with curative intent, or metastatic breast cancer and a documented (BRCA1) and (BRCA2) deleterious germline mutation.

  • Veliparib With or Without Carboplatin in Treating Patients With Stage III-IV Breast Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies how well veliparib with or without carboplatin works in treating patients with stage III-IV breast cancer. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, 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 veliparib is more effective with or without carboplatin in treating breast cancer.
