Obtaining Solid Tumor Tissue From People Having Biopsy or Surgery for Certain Types of Cancer

Background: - Recent advances in cancer research have led to new therapies to treat the disease. It is important to continue these advances and discover new ones. To do that, researchers need tissue samples from solid tumors. This study will collect such samples from people already scheduled to have a procedure at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center (NIHCC). Objectives: - To collect tissue samples for use in studying new ways to treat tumors. Eligibility: Adults 18 years and older, with a precancerous or cancerous solid tumor who are scheduled to have surgery or a biopsy at the NIHCC. Children under the age of 18 but who are older than 2 years of age are eligible to be enrolled on the research sample collection portion of this study if they will have a biopsy or surgery as part of their medical care. Design: Before their procedure, participants will have a small blood sample taken. Some participants will undergo leukapheresis. In this procedure, blood is removed through a tube in one arm and circulated through a machine that removes white blood cells. The blood, minus the white blood cells, is returned through a tube in the other arm. The procedure takes 3-4 hours. For all participants, during the surgery or biopsy, pieces of the tumor and pieces of normal tissue near it will be removed for this study. The rest of the tumor or precancerous growth will be sent to a lab for analysis. Participants will return to the clinic about 6 weeks after the operation for a routine checkup. Some may have to return for additional follow-up.

VB-111 in Combination With Nivolumab in People With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer (mCRC)

Background: Gastrointestinal cancer is one of the most common cancers worldwide. Researchers think an unmet need exists to understand and improve treatment options. They want to see if a combination of drugs can help people with metastatic colorectal cancer. Objective: To see if using a combination of VB-111 and nivolumab is safe and will cause colorectal tumors to shrink. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older with microsatellite stable colorectal cancer that has spread to the liver Design: Participants must consent to sample collection protocol 11C0112. Participants will be screened with: Blood tests Scans Tumor samples. If these are not available, participants will have a biopsy. Before they start treatment and with every treatment cycle, participants will have: Physical exams Blood tests Heart tests Before they start treatment and every 4 cycles, participants will have CT or MRI scans. For these, they will lie in a machine that takes pictures of the body. For the MRI, a soft padding or coil will be placed around their head. Participants will have biopsies before they start therapy. They will have them again after 2 6 weeks on study. On day 1 of 14-day cycles, participants will get one or both study drugs by vein. After they finish treatment, participants will have monthly visits for 3 months. They will have a physical exam and blood tests. If participants stop treatment for reasons other than their disease getting worse, they will have scans about every 8 weeks. This will continue until their disease gets worse. Participants will be contacted by phone or email every 6 months. This will continue for life. ...
