3 active trials for Hematologic Cancers
Genomic Profiling in Cancer Patients
The purpose of this study is to determine whether certain genes in cancer may be abnormal. When a gene is abnormal this is called a mutation. Most mutations in cancer cells are not inherited (passed down from parents) but happen after birth in the cancer itself. Most cancers have many mutations. Some of these mutations are important for the cancer cells to survive while others are not. The goal of this study is test cancer for certain mutations using leftover tumor tissue from a previous surgery or biopsy. Participants will also be asked to provide a tube of blood cheek (also known as a buccal) swab, or a saliva sample that contains normal genes for comparison. The purpose of Part B of this study is to: Understand how genetic changes in tumor effect the chance of responding to experimental cancer treatment. Understand how the genes in the tumor change overtime in response to targeted cancer treatment.Bronx, New YorkStart: January 2013
Phase 2 Study Assessing Efficacy and Safety of Crizotinib in Patients Harboring an Alteration on ALK, MET or ROS1
This is a biology driven, trans-tumoral, multicentric phase II trial assessing the efficacy and the safety of the targeted agent crizotinib as a monotherapy in 23 cohorts of patients with identified activating molecular alterations in the crizotinib target genes. A cohort is defined by a pathology and a crizotinib-target alteration (eg gastric cancer with MET amplification). For each cohort a two-stage design will be implemented. In the situation where expected accrual allows for a sufficient number of patients to be accrued, the alpha and beta errors will be fixed at 10%. However, in very rare diseases, such as inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT), neuroblastoma, glioblastoma, and rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), it is anticipated that the target number may not be achievable in a reasonable timeframe; for these cohorts, the alpha and beta errors will be fixed at 15%. Consequently three different statistical designs will be a priori considered according to the expected response rate and incidence.Villejuif, Ile De FranceStart: August 2013
Phase 2 Study Assessing Secured Access to Vemurafenib for Patients With Tumors Harboring BRAF Genomic Alterations
Patients with metastatic or unresectable locally advanced malignancies harboring BRAF genomic alterations, the biological target of vemurafenib, and who are no more amenable to curative treatment. To explore the efficacy of vemurafenib as a single agent across diverse type of tumors guided by the presence of identified activating molecular alterations in the vemurafenib target gene, per cohort.ParisStart: October 2014
