A Study Evaluating the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Preliminary Activity of Idasanutlin in Combination With Either Chemotherapy or Venetoclax in the Treatment of Pediatric and Young Adult Participants With Relapsed/Refractory Acute Leukemias or Solid Tumors

This is a Phase I/II, multicenter, open-label, multi-arm study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary efficacy of idasanutlin, administered as a single agent or in combination with chemotherapy or venetoclax, in pediatric and young adult participants with acute leukemias or solid tumors. This study is divided into three parts: Part 1 will begin with dose escalation of idasanutlin as a single agent in pediatric participants with relapsed or refractory solid tumors to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD)/maximum administered dose (MAD) and to characterize dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs). Following MTD/MAD identification, three separate safety run-in cohorts in neuroblastoma, acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) will be conducted to identify the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of idasanutlin in each combination, with chemotherapy or venetoclax. Part 2 will evaluate the safety and early efficacy of idasanutlin in combination with chemotherapy or venetoclax in newly enrolled pediatric and young adult participants in neuroblastoma, AML,and ALL cohorts at idasanutlin RP2D. Part 3 will potentially be conducted as an additional expansion phase of the idasanutlin combination cohorts in neuroblastoma, AML, or ALL for further response and safety assessment.

Long-term Safety and Efficacy Extension Study for Participants With Advanced Tumors Who Are Currently on Treatment or in Follow-up in a Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) Study (MK-3475-587/KEYNOTE-587)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in participants from previous Merck pembrolizumab-based parent studies who roll-over into this extension study. This study will consist of three phases: 1) First Course Phase, 2) Survival Follow-up Phase or 3) Second Course Phase. Each participant will roll-over to this extension study in one of the following three phases, depending on the study phase they were in at the completion of the parent study. Participants who were in the First Course Phase of study treatment in their parent study will enter the First Course Phase of this study and complete up to 35 doses or more every 3 weeks (Q3W) or 17 doses or more every 6 weeks (Q6W) of study treatment with pembrolizumab or a pembrolizumab-based combination according to arm assignment. Participants who were in the Follow-up Phase in the parent study (post-treatment or Survival Follow-up Phase) will enter the Survival Follow-up Phase of this study. Participants who were in the Second Course Phase in their parent study will enter Second Course Phase of this study and complete up to 17 doses Q3W or 8 doses Q6W of study treatment with pembrolizumab or a pembrolizumab-based combination according to arm assignment. Any participant originating from a parent trial where crossover to pembrolizumab was permitted upon disease progression may be may be eligible for 35 doses as Q3W or 17 doses Q6W of pembrolizumab (approximately 2 years), if they progress while on the control arm and pembrolizumab is approved for the indication in the country where the potential eligible crossover participant is being evaluated.

Combination Nilotinib and Paclitaxel in Adults With Relapsed Solid Tumors

Background: - Researchers want to find better ways to treat cancer. One drug that treats cancer is paclitaxel. Sometimes proteins block that drug from working. Researchers want to see if another drug, nilotinib, helps paclitaxel work better. Objective: - To test the safety of nilotinib plus paclitaxel and find out what doses of the drugs can be given safely to people. Eligibility: - Adults at least 18 years old with advanced cancer that has progressed after receiving standard treatment, or for which no effective therapy exists. Design: Participants will be screened with tests they usually get in their cancer care: medical history, physical exam, blood and urine tests, heart test, and scans. Participants will take the two study drugs in 28-day cycles. They will keep a medicine diary. Nilotinib will be taken by mouth twice every day except day 1 of the first cycle. Paclitaxel will be given by IV once a week for the first 3 weeks of a cycle. This will usually be done at the clinic. Most participants will have a weekly study visit every week for cycle 1, then the first 3 weeks of other cycles. They will have: Physical exam at every visit. Blood tests multiple times for cycle 1, then the first 3 weeks of other cycles. Scans every 8 weeks. These may be CT or MRI scans, in a machine that takes pictures. Or they may be ultrasounds, where a wand is pressed on the skin with gel on it. Around 30 days after stopping the study drugs, participants will be called to discuss any side effects.

Machine Learning to Analyze Facial Imaging, Voice and Spoken Language for the Capture and Classification of Cancer/Tumor Pain

Background: Cancer pain can have a very negative effect on people s daily lives. Researchers want to use machine learning to detect facial expressions and voice signals. They want to help people with cancer by creating a model to measure pain. They want the model to reflect diverse faces and facial expressions. Objective: To find out whether facial recognition technology can be used to classify pain in a diverse set of people with cancer. Also, to find out whether voice recognition technology can be used to assess pain. Eligibility: People ages 12 and older who are undergoing treatment for cancer Design: Participants will be screened with: Cancer history Information about their gender and skin type Information about their access to a smart phone and wireless internet Questions about their cancer pain Participants will have check-ins at the clinic and at home. These will occur over about 3 months. They will have 2-4 check-ins at the clinic. They will check in at home about 3 times per week. During check-ins, participants will answer questions and talk about their cancer pain. They will use a mobile phone or a computer with a camera and microphone to complete a questionnaire. They will record a video of themselves reading a 15-second passage of text and responding to a question. During the clinic check-ins, professional lighting, video equipment, and cameras will be used for the recordings. During remote check-ins, participants will be asked to complete the questionnaire and recordings alone. They should be in a quiet and bright room. The room should have a white wall or background.

Mobile Sensor Technologies to Assess General Symptomology of People With Cancer

Background: Many digital devices, such as smartphones and activity monitors, have sensors to collect and track health data. Researchers believe these devices may be able to transform the quality of clinical research and healthcare. They believe they may be able to help assess the symptoms, response to therapy, and quality of life of people with cancer. Objective: To collect data from people with cancer using an Apple iPhone alone or together with an Apple Watch in order to assess their symptoms and activity levels. Eligibility: People ages 18 years and over who have cancer and receiving treatment for their cancer in another NIH protocol Design: Participants will be screened with their medical records. Participants will have a baseline visit. They will have visits every 2 4 weeks based on the treatment protocol in which they are co-enrolled. Then they will have a follow-up visit 4 months after the baseline visit. Visits include: Medical history Physical exam Karnofsky Performance Scale/Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status to see how their disease affects daily activities The study team will use an iPhone to collect data. This includes a 6-minute walk test and tests of hearing, reaction time, and cognitive status. Questionnaires If participants have an iPhone, an Apple Watch will be provided to them after training at the baseline visit. Continuous measurement of their activity will be recorded by the watch between 2 visits. They will wear the watch while they are on study. They will wear the watch while it is not being charged. They should charge the watch at night time. They will have the watch for 4 months.
