Merkel Cell Carcinoma clinical trials at UC Health

11 in progress, 6 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study of INCMGA00012 in Metastatic Merkel Cell Carcinoma (POD1UM-201)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to assess the clinical activity and safety of INCMGA00012 in participants with advanced/metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC).

  • A Study of NKTR-262 in Combination With Bempegaldesleukin (NKTR-214) and With Bempegaldesleukin Plus Nivolumab in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumor Malignancies

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Patients will receive intra-tumoral (IT) NKTR-262 in 3-week treatment cycles. During the Phase 1 dose escalation portion of the trial, NKTR-262 will be combined with systemic administration of bempegaldesleukin. After determination of the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of NKTR-262, between 6 and 18 patients may be enrolled at the RP2D to further characterize the safety and tolerability profile of the combination of NKTR 262 plus bempegaldesleukin (doublet) or NKTR 262 plus bempegaldesleukin in combination with nivolumab (triplet) in Cohorts A and B, respectively. In the Phase 2 dose expansion portion, patients will be treated with doublet or triplet in the relapsed/refractory setting and earlier lines of therapy.

  • Adjuvant Avelumab in Merkel Cell Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well avelumab works in treating patients with Merkel cell cancer that has spread to the lymph nodes and have undergone surgery and/or radiation therapy. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as avelumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

  • FT500 as Monotherapy and in Combination With Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors in Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    FT500 is an off-the-shelf, iPSC-derived NK cell product that can bridge innate and adaptive immunity, and has the potential to overcome multiple mechanisms of immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI) resistance. The preclinical data provide compelling evidence supporting the clinical investigation of FT500 as monotherapy and in combination with ICI in subjects with advanced solid tumors.

  • Long-term, Non-interventional, Observational Study Following Treatment With Fate Therapeutics FT500 Cellular Immunotherapy

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Subjects who previously took part in the FT500-101 study and received allogeneic NK cell immunotherapy will take part in this long term follow-up study. Subjects will automatically enroll into study FT-003 once they have withdrawn or complete the parent interventional study. The purpose of this study is to provide long-term safety and survival data for subjects who have participated in the parent study. No additional study drug will be given, but subjects can receive other therapies for their cancer while they are being followed for long term safety in this study.

  • Pembrolizumab Compared to Standard of Care Observation in Treating Patients With Completely Resected Stage I-III Merkel Cell Cancer, STAMP Study

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase III trial studies how well pembrolizumab works compared to standard of care observation in treating patients with stage I-III Merkel cell cancer that has been completely removed by surgery (resected). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

  • A Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of Immunotherapy Combinations in Participants With Advanced Malignancies

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a Phase 1, open-label, dose-escalation and dose-expansion study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic (PK), pharmacodynamic (PD) and clinical activity of AB928 in combination with AB122 (an anti-PD-1 antibody) in participants with advanced malignancies.

  • Avelumab in Participants With Merkel Cell Carcinoma (JAVELIN Merkel 200)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a multicenter, international, single-arm, open-label, Phase 2 trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of avelumab in participants with metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC).

  • Intratumoral Cavrotolimod Combined With Pembrolizumab or Cemiplimab in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a phase 1b/2, open-label, multicenter trial designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and preliminary efficacy of intratumoral AST-008 injections alone and in combination with intravenous pembrolizumab or cemiplimab in patients with advanced solid tumors. Phase 1b of this trial is a 3+3 dose escalation study evaluating escalating or intermediate dose levels of AST-008 given with a fixed dose of pembrolizumab. The Phase 2 dose expansion part of the study will consist of two cohorts of patients: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC). Patients in the MCC cohort will receive IT AST-008 combined with a fixed, standard dose of pembrolizumab while the CSCC cohort will receive IT AST-008 combined with a fixed, standard dose of cemiplimab. The Phase 2 dose expansion is designed to provide a preliminary estimate of efficacy in patients that have progressed on an anti-PD-(L)1 CPI or are otherwise refractory to CPI therapy.

  • Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients With Advanced Merkel Cell Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies how well pembrolizumab works in treating patients with Merkel cell cancer that cannot be removed by surgery or controlled with treatment, or has spread to other parts of the body. Pembrolizumab may stimulate the immune system to identify and destroy cancer cells.

  • Talimogene Laherparepvec and Nivolumab in Treating Patients With Refractory Lymphomas or Advanced or Refractory Non-melanoma Skin Cancers

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This phase II trial studies how well talimogene laherparepvec and nivolumab work in treating patients with lymphomas that do not responded to treatment (refractory) or non-melanoma skin cancers that have spread to other places in the body (advanced) or do not responded to treatment. Biological therapies, such as talimogene laherparepvec, use substances made from living organisms that may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop tumor cells from growing. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving talimogene laherparepvec and nivolumab may work better compared to usual treatments in treating patients with lymphomas or non-melanoma skin cancers.
