  • Different Doses of BI 765049 When Given Alone and When Given With Ezabenlimab to Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors Expressing the Protein B7-H6 on the Cell Surface

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study is open to adults with advanced solid tumors whose previous cancer treatment was not successful. People can participate if their tumor has the B7-H6 marker or if they have colorectal cancer. The study tests 2 medicines called BI 765049 and ezabenlimab (BI 754091). Both medicines may help the immune system fight cancer. The purpose of this study is to find out the highest dose of BI 765049 alone and in combination with ezabenlimab the participants can tolerate. In this study, BI 765049 is given to people for the first time. Participants can stay in the study for up to 3 years, if they benefit from treatment and can tolerate it. During this time, they get BI 765049 alone or in combination with ezabenlimab as infusion into a vein every 3 weeks. The doctors check the health of the participants and note any health problems that could have been caused by BI 765049 or ezabenlimab. The doctors also regularly monitor the size of the tumor.

  • RGX-202-01 (Ompenaclid) as Combination Therapy in RAS Mutant Advanced Colorectal Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a Phase 1 study currently evaluating PO administered ompenaclid in combination with FOLFIRI and bevacizumab in patients with advanced (i.e., locally advanced and unresectable, or metastatic) previously treated colorectal adenocarcinoma. The single agent ompenaclid dose escalation stage and the ompenaclid in combination with FOLFIRI and bevacizumab dose escalation stage of the study has been completed; the expansion stage of ompenaclid in combination with FOLFIRI and bevacizumab is ongoing. In April-24 a protocol amendment added a new dose escalation and expansion stage which will evaluate ompenaclid in combination with FOLFOX and bevacizumab in patients with metastatic CRC. It is anticipated that a total of 30 patients will be enrolled in this new dose escalation and expansion stage of the study.

  • Radiation Therapy for the Treatment of Metastatic Gastrointestinal Cancers

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies how well radiation therapy works for the treatment of gastrointestinal cancer that are spreading to other places in the body (metastatic). Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. This trial is being done to determine if giving radiation therapy to patients who are being treated with immunotherapy and whose cancers are progressing (getting worse) can slow or stop the growth of their cancers. It may also help researchers determine if giving radiation therapy to one tumor can stimulate the immune system to attack other tumors in the body that are not targeted by the radiation therapy.

  • BT5528-100 in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors Associated With EphA2 Expression

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This clinical trial is evaluating a drug called BT5528 alone and in combination with nivolumab in participants with advanced solid tumors historically known for expression of EphA2. The main goals of this study are to: - Find the recommended dose(s) of BT5528 that can be given safely to participants alone and in combination with nivolumab - Learn more about the side effects of BT5528 - Learn about how effective BT5528 is for the treatment of ovarian cancer, urothelial/bladder cancer, lung cancer (NSCLC), triple-negative breast cancer, head and neck cancer (HNSCC), and gastric/upper gastrointestinal cancer. - Learn more about BT5528 therapy alone and in combination with nivolumab.

  • [18F]FAPI-74 PET in Patients With Gastrointestinal Cancers

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Prospective, multi-center, open label, non-randomized clinical trial to assess efficacy of [18F]FAPI-74 to detect FAP expressing cells in patients diagnosed with gastrointestinal cancers, including hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, gastric, pancreatic and colorectal cancer. The [18F]FAPI-74 PET scan will be acquired in patients with proven GI cancers after initial staging using institutional standard methods. The PET scan results will be compared to FAP immunohistochemistry (as the primary objective) and histopathology (as the secondary objective) of the biopsied or resected tissues.

  • Ulixertinib in Combination With Hydroxychloroquine in Patients With Advanced Gastrointestinal (GI) Malignancies

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is an open-label, prospective phase two basket trial assessing the efficacy of ulixertinib in combination with hydroxychloroquine in patients with advanced gastrointestinal malignancies. All patients enrolled must have a mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activating mutation to be deemed eligible for trial participation. Each disease-based basket will open to enrollment in two-stages. The opening of stage two will be dependent on the observed responses in the patients enrolled in the first stage.

  • Assessing Durvalumab and FLOT Chemotherapy in Resectable Gastric and Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a Global Study of Neoadjuvant-Adjuvant Durvalumab or Placebo and FLOT Chemotherapy Followed by Adjuvant Durvalumab or Placebo in Patients with Resectable Gastric and Gastroesophageal Cancer (GC/GEJC) (MATTERHORN).

  • Pazopanib Hydrochloride in Treating Patients With Progressive Carcinoid Tumors

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well pazopanib hydrochloride works in treating patients with carcinoid tumors that are growing, spreading, or getting worse. Pazopanib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Personalized Immunotherapy in Adults With Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Cancers

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The purpose of this study is to determine if it is possible to make and safely administer a 'personalized' cancer vaccine for people diagnosed with an upper gastrointestinal tract cancer.

  • Testing Cabozantinib in Patients With Advanced Pancreatic Neuroendocrine and Carcinoid Tumors

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase III trial studies cabozantinib to see how well it works compared with placebo in treating patients with neuroendocrine or carcinoid tumors that may have spread from where it first started to nearby tissue, lymph nodes, or distant parts of the body (advanced). Cabozantinib is a chemotherapy drug known as a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, and it targets specific tyrosine kinase receptors, that when blocked, may slow tumor growth.

  • Prevention of Colorectal Cancer Through Multiomics Blood Testing

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The PREEMPT CRC study is a prospective multi-center observational study to validate a blood-based test for the early detection of colorectal cancer by collecting blood samples from average-risk participants who will undergo a routine screening colonoscopy.
