M7824 in Subjects With HPV Associated Malignancies

Background: In the United States, each year there are more than 30,000 cases of human papillomavirus (HPV) associated cancers. Some of these cancers are often incurable and are not improved by standard therapies. Researchers want to see if a new drug M7824, which targets and blocks a pathway that prevents the immune system from effectively fighting the cancer can shrink tumors in people with some HPV cancers. Objectives: To see if the drug M7824 causes tumors to shrink. Eligibility: Adults age 18 and older who have a cancer associated with HPV infection. Design: Participants will be screened with medical history and physical exam. They will review their symptoms and how they perform normal activities. They will have body scans. They will give blood and urine samples. They will have a sample of their tumor tissue taken if one is not available. Participants will have an electrocardiogram to evaluate their heart. Then they will get the study drug through a thin tube in an arm vein. Participants will get the drug every 2 weeks for 26 times (1 year). This is 1 course. After the course, participants will be monitored but will not take the study drug. If their condition gets worse, they will start another course with the drug. This process can be repeated as many times as needed. Treatment will stop if the participant has bad side effects or the drug stops working. Throughout the study, participants will repeat some or all the screening tests. After participants stop taking the drug, they will have a follow-up visit and repeat some screening tests. They will get periodic follow-up phone calls. ...

Evaluation of Lymphadenectomy and Chemotherapy TIP on Inguinal Lymph Nodes in Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Penis (AFU-GETUG 25)

Squamous cell carcinoma of the penis is a rare tumor in Europe, whose prognosis and survival are influenced by metastatic lymph node involvement. Its frequency in France is estimated at less than 1% of human cancers. This spread follows a sequential process via the superficial and deep inguinal lymph nodes and then to the pelvic lymph nodes before metastatic dissemination. The management of inguinal areas is the cornerstone of penile cancer. It is curative in about 80% of patients with 1 or 2 inguinal metastases. 5-years overall survival was on average 85% for pN0 patients and 40% for pN+ patients. For pN+ patients, 5-year overall survival was 70 to 80% for pN1 (only 1 lymph node invasion), 30 to 40% for pN2, and 0 to 10% for pN3. The risk of local recurrence is 5-10% for pN0 and 20-30% for pN+ after local treatment by lymphadenectomy alone without chemotherapy. The average time to recurrence was 10 months. Disease-free survival at 5 years is 75-85% for pN0 and 30-45% for pN+. Its indication depends on clinical examination (presence or absence of lymph nodes palpated) and the risk of nodal disease (≥pT1bG2). Currently, a fine needle biopsy is the best clinical diagnosis method because it is a simple, low risk, and possible in consultation. When the result is positive, it allows an early dissection. Single or double fine needle biopsy will be used in cN+ patients. For patients at risk of lymp nodes involvement (cN0 and ≥pT1B or G2), the sentinel node diagnosis may be followed by modified or bilateral lymphadenectomy. Although lymphadenectomy alone has a curator action, it sometimes remains insufficient in patients with metastatic lymph node involvement. Therefore it seems important to develop a multimodal approach in the management of these patients in order to increase the response rate to treatment and survival. From a Phase II trial conducted on 30 patients, the combination TIP (paclitaxel, ifosfamide, and cisplatin) appears to have an efficacy / toxicity acceptable. The TIP protocol has therefore been chosen for this trial as adjuvant or neo-adjuvant treatment in patients with high risk of lymph nodes involvement (cN0 and ≥pT1B or G2), and with inguinal mobile palpated lymph nodes (cN+) respectively, after lymph nodes involvement proven (pN+).
