Merkel Cell Carcinoma clinical trials at UC Health
6 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

  • 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).

  • 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.

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

    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. 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.

  • Avelumab in Subjects 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 subjects with metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC).

    at UCLA

  • 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 Sk...

    Sorry, currently not accepting new patients, but might later

    This phase II trial studies how well talimogene laherparepvec works and nivolumab in treating patients with lymphomas that do not responded to treatment or non-melanoma skin cancers that have spread to other places in the body 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 in treating patients with lymphomas or non-melanoma skin cancers.
