  • Diagnostic Imaging Study for the Melanoma Advanced Imaging Dermatoscope (mAID)

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    The purpose of this study is to calculate the sensitivity and specificity of a novel imaging device and associated software algorithm in detecting early stage melanoma versus nevi of the skin. The instrument, which was invented by the PI, for the purposes of this study, will be loaned to three external (to Rockefeller) institutions and used on patients who are scheduled for biopsy of pigmented lesions. The purpose of correlating the output screening result of the novel device and the output diagnosis of the gold standard histology analysis procedure is so that these two diagnoses can be compared to generate the number of true positives, true negatives, false positives and false negatives for the novel device. The purpose of disseminating the device to the external institutions is to achieve the appropriate power such that the specificity can be evaluated at 99% sensitivity. The rationale for the power needed in the study is that in order to be clinically useful, the device needs to be extremely sensitive (i.e. 99%) because false negative diagnosis is a dangerous situation, leading to potential progression of melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer.

  • Phase 1b/2 Study of the Combination of IMCgp100 With Durvalumab and/or Tremelimumab in Cutaneous Melanoma

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study is a Phase Ib/II, multi-center, open-label study of IMCgp100 as a single agent and in combination with durvalumab (MEDI4736) and/or tremelimumab in metastatic cutaneous melanoma. The purpose of this study is to characterize the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics, and anti-tumor activity of IMCgp100 in combination with durvalumab (MEDI4736, programmed death-ligand 1 [PD-L1] inhibitor), tremelimumab (CLTA-4 inhibitor), and the combination of durvalumab with tremelimumab compared to single-agent IMCgp100 alone. The study will enroll patients who have metastatic melanoma that is refractory to treatment with an anti-PD-1 inhibitor as well as patients naive to therapy in the metastatic setting. Recent biologic evidence indicates that optimal responses to programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) directed therapy require the presence of CD8+ T cells in the tumor microenvironment and thus therapies such as IMCgp100 that recruit these effector cells to the tumor may overcome pre-existing resistance to checkpoint blockade. This emerging biology of checkpoint inhibitor resistance suggests the combination of IMCgp100 with checkpoint inhibition may have enhanced activity in patients with pre-existing resistance.

  • Study of Gene Modified Immune Cells in Patients With Advanced Melanoma

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this phase 2 study is to find the best way to give this new experimental regimen and determine if it can treat metastatic melanoma in humans. In this phase 2 study, the experimental products are given initially to a group of 8 people. If safe and found to have significant anti-tumor activity, it will be given to up to 14 other people, for a total of 22 people in this study. Physicians watch subjects carefully for any harmful side effects. Although the experimental regimen has been well tested in laboratory and animal studies, and a similar regimen has been given to a group of patients at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD, the side effects in people cannot be completely known ahead of time. This protocol is offered only to people whose condition cannot be helped by other known treatments. The study procedures will start with the collection of white blood cells through apheresis (a procedure in which blood is drawn from a patient and separated into its components, some of which are retained, such as white blood cells, and the remainder returned by transfusion to the patient). Subjects will be asked to undergo two aphereses, one to make the gene-modified MART-1 TCR CTLs and the dendritic cell vaccines, and a second one after the subject receives the gene modified cells to later study them in the blood. On the day of the first apheresis, subjects will be admitted to the hospital and will receive chemotherapy over the next five days which decreases the risk of rejection of the transferred cells by the subject's immune system and facilitates their expansion and attack of the melanoma lesions. During this time, the gene-modified MART-1 TCR CTLs and the dendritic cells will be manufactured in the laboratory from the apheresis product and will be extensively tested to assure that they express the appropriate TCR and that they do not contain any contaminating bacteria or virus. Then the gene-modified MART-1 TCR CTLs will be given back to the subject through a vein in the arm. It will be followed by vaccination with the dendritic cells under the skin. During the next fourteen days, subjects will also receive interleukin 2 (IL-2), which is a standard treatment for patients with metastatic melanoma. During the next 2 to 3 weeks, subjects will stay in the hospital until the study investigators determine that the subject has fully recovered from all of the procedures, and it is safe for the subject to go home. Chemotherapy frequently causes a decrease in the platelet or red blood cells, and therefore subjects may require platelet and/or red blood cell transfusions.

  • Targeted therapy directed by genetic testing in treating patients with advanced solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma

    “Will identifying genetic abnormalities in tumor cells help doctors plan better, more personalized treatment for cancer patients?”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

  • Randomized Study Comparing Two Dosing Schedules for Hypofractionated Image-Guided Radiation Therapy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to find out which way of giving high-dose radiation works best for treatment of cancer that has spread to bone, the spine, soft tissue, or lymph nodes. This study will look at the effects, good and/or bad, of giving 27 Gy in three fractions (3 days) or 24 Gy in one fraction (1 day) using image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IG-IMRT). IG-IMRT is radiation that is given directly to the cancer site and reduces the exposure to normal tissue. Currently there are no studies that compare the effects of giving radiation in either hypofractionated doses (higher total doses of radiation spread out over several treatment days) or a single-fraction dose (entire radiation dose given in one treatment session). The patient may be asked to participate in an additional part of this study where we will get a a (DW/DCE) MRI before treatment start and within one hour after radiation treatment. If the patient is asked to take part in this portion of the study, all they will need to do is get up to 3 MRIs with standard contrast injection. The purpose of this is to see if as a result of the treatment there are changes in the blood flow going to the cancer which could suggest that the treatment may be successful. In addition some patients can present new lesions and may be asked if they would like to have these new lesions treated on the protocol. If they are given this option, this will not extend their follow up period. The follow up of the new lesions will match with the prior follow up dates.

    This study will be done in 6 parts. In Part A the dose of intravenous (IV) pembrolizumab (MK-3475) will be escalated to find the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) for participants with a histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of any type of carcinoma or melanoma (MEL). Part B of the study will explore the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of the drug in participants with advanced or metastatic MEL and compare every 2 week to every 3 week dosing. Part C of the study will explore the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of the drug in participants with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) that is locally advanced or metastatic. Part D of the study will explore the low and high doses of study drug identified in Parts A and B in participants with advanced or metastatic MEL. Part E (closed with Amendment 7) will explore low, medium, and high doses of study drug in combination with standard chemotherapy in participants with locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC. Part F will explore low and high doses of study drug in treatment-naive and previously-treated participants with NSCLC with programmed cell death 1 ligand (PD-L1) gene expression. In Parts D and F and some of Part B participants will be randomized to one dose level. The primary hypotheses are the following: that pembrolizumab has acceptable safety and tolerability; and that pembrolizumab shows a clinically meaningful response rate (RR) or disease-control rate (DCR) in participants with melanoma (ipilimumab-refractory or not), and a clinically meaningful RR in participants with NSCLC, especially a clinically meaningful RR in those participants with either cancer, whose tumors express PD-L1.

  • Study of Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) Versus Chemotherapy in Participants With Advanced Melanoma (P08719/KEYNOTE-002)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study is being done to compare survival using pembrolizumab (SCH 900475, MK-3475) or standard chemotherapy for participants with advanced melanoma (MEL) who have progressed after prior therapy. Participants were initially randomized to receive either low dose pembrolizumab, higher dose pembrolizumab or Investigator-choice chemotherapy (ICC). The randomization to either pembrolizumab or Investigator choice chemotherapy was conducted in an open-label fashion. The pembrolizumab dose was initially blinded to Investigators and participants until Amendment 03. With Amendment 03, all ongoing pembrolizumab participants will be treated with open-label, fixed dose pembrolizumab 200 mg every 3 weeks (Q3W), instead of weight-based dosing of pembrolizumab. The four standard chemotherapy choices were carboplatin + paclitaxel, paclitaxel alone, dacarbazine, or temozolomide. Participants on standard chemotherapy who experienced disease progression may have been eligible to crossover to treatment with pembrolizumab provided they met protocol-specified requirements for crossover. With Amendment 03, all crossover participants will be treated with open-label, fixed dose pembrolizumab 200 mg Q3W instead of weight-based dosing of pembrolizumab.

  • Trial of pIL-12/MK-3475 in Metastatic Melanoma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a multicenter, Phase II, open-label, 42-patient single-arm trial of intratumoral pIL-12 EP in combination with pembrolizumab in patients with melanoma. Patients will be evaluated in 2 parts. Part A patients will be selected using a flow cytometric assay that quantifies intratumoral PD-1hiCD8+CTLA4+ "exhausted" lymphocytes in the tumor. Part B will enroll patients who have or are failing pembrolizumab at least 12 weeks after starting PD-1 antibody alone or in combination, or, who have been selected using a flow cytometric assay that quantifies intratumoral PD-1hiCD8+CTLA4+ "exhausted" lymphocytes in the tumor.
