KaCrole Higgins was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020. “In May 2020, I found a lump in my breast. I cried. By June, it was diagnosed as breast cancer, triple positive, stage 1A. While getting this cancer diagnosis was devastating, it also became an opportunity. Suddenly, the cancer gave me clarity. It gave me clarity about what was important, what was good in my life, what was toxic in my life, and what I needed to do.” Click below to read more of KaCrole’s story

If Landon Ryan had been diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma 10, 20 or 30 years ago, she might not be here today with nearly perfect vision.Thanks to recent improvements in the treatment for this rare form of cancer that almost exclusively affects children under the age of 5, the diagnosis had the power to change Landon’s life when she was 11 months old, but not to take it — or her eyesight.

Evolutionary Inspired Therapy for the Treatment of Fusion Positive Newly Diagnosed, Metastatic Rhabdomyosarcoma

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase II trial investigates evolutionary inspired therapy in treating fusion positive rhabdomyosarcoma that is newly diagnosed and has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Chemotherapy drugs, such as vinorelbine, vincristine sulfate, and actinomycin D, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Cyclophosphamide is used to decrease the body's immune response and may inhibit DNA replication and initiate cell death. This study is being done to determine which of 4 different therapeutic treatments will have the best chance of the disease not worsening or coming back.

Mismatched Related Donor versus Matched Unrelated Donor Stem Cell Transplantation for Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults with Acute Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase III trial compares hematopoietic (stem) cell transplantation (HCT) using mismatched related donors (haploidentical [haplo]) versus matched unrelated donors (MUD) in treating children, adolescents, and young adults with acute leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). HCT is considered standard of care treatment for patients with high-risk acute leukemia and MDS. In HCT, patients are given very high doses of chemotherapy or radiation therapy, which is intended to kill cancer cells that may be resistant to more standard doses of chemotherapy; unfortunately, this also destroys the normal cells in the bone marrow, including stem cells. After the treatment, patients must have a healthy supply of stem cells reintroduced or transplanted. The transplanted cells then reestablish the blood cell production process in the bone marrow. The healthy stem cells may come from the blood or bone marrow of a related or unrelated donor. If patients do not have a matched related donor, doctors do not know what the next best donor choice is or if a haplo related donor or MUD is better. This trial may help researchers understand whether a haplo related donor or a MUD HCT for children with acute leukemia or MDS is better or if there is no difference at all.

A Randomized Study Investigating Preoperative Chemotherapy Followed by Surgery versus Surgery Alone in Patients with High Risk Retroperitoneal Sarcoma, STRASS2 Trial

Sarcoma

This phase III trial compares the effect of adding chemotherapy (doxorubicin or epirubicin hydrochloride [epirubicin] with ifosfamide or dacarbazine) before standard surgery versus surgery alone in improving long-term survival in patients with retroperitoneal sarcomas that are able to be removed by surgery (resectable). Chemotherapy drugs, such as doxorubicin, epirubicin, ifosfamide, and dacarbazine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving chemotherapy before surgery may make the tumor smaller and easier to remove and may increase patient survival, compared to surgery alone.

First in Human Study of Ziftomenib in Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Multiple Cancer Types

This first-in-human (FIH) dose-escalation and dose-validation/expansion study will assess
ziftomenib, a menin-MLL(KMT2A) inhibitor, in patients with relapsed or refractory acute
myeloid leukemia (AML) as part of Phase 1. In Phase 2, assessment of ziftomenib will continue
in patients with NPM1-m AML.

Study of DF1001 in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

Multiple Cancer Types

DF1001-001 is a study of a new molecule that targets natural killer (NK) cells and T-cell
activation signals to specific receptors on cancer cells. The study will occur in two phases.
The first phase will be a dose escalation phase, enrolling patients with various types of
solid tumors that express human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). The second phase
will include a dose expansion using the best dose selected from the first phase of the study.
Multiple cohorts will be opened with eligible patients having either HER2 activated non-small
cell lung cancer, hormone receptor (HR) positive HER2 negative metastatic breast cancer, or
HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer. DF1001-001 will be administered as monotherapy or in
combination; combinations are DF1001 + nivolumab, DF1001 + Nab paclitaxel, and DF1001 +
sacituzumab govitecan-hziy.

Testing Atezolizumab Alone or Atezolizumab Plus Bevacizumab in People with Advanced Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma

Sarcoma

This phase II trial studies how well atezolizumab or atezolizumab plus bevacizumab works in treating patients with alveolar soft part sarcoma that has not been treated, has spread from where it started to other places in the body (advanced) and cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Atezolizumab works by unblocking the immune system, allowing the immune system cells to recognize and then attack tumor cells. Bevacizumab works by controlling the growth of new blood vessels. Giving atezolizumab alone or atezolizumab with bevacizumab may shrink the cancer.

Tiragolumab and Atezolizumab for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 Deficient Tumors

Pediatrics

This phase I/II trial studies how well tiragolumab and atezolizumab works when given to children and adults with SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 deficient tumors that that has either come back (relapsed) or does not respond to therapy (refractory). SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 deficiency means that tumor cells are missing the SMARCB1 and SMARCA4 genes, seen with some aggressive cancers that are typically hard to treat. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as tiragolumab and atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

(Peak) A Phase 3 Randomized Trial of CGT9486+Sunitinib vs. Sunitinib in Subjects With Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors

GIST

This is a Phase 3, open-label, international, multicenter study of CGT9486 in combination
with sunitinib. This is a multi-part study that will enroll approximately 426 patients. Part
1 consists of two evaluations: 1) confirming the dose of an updated formulation of CGT9486 to
be used in subsequent parts in approximately 20 patients who have received at least one prior
line of therapy for GIST and 2) evaluating for drug-drug interactions between CGT9486 and
sunitinib in approximately 18 patients who have received at least two prior tyrosine kinase
inhibitors (TKIs) for GISTs. The second part of the study will enroll approximately 388
patients who are intolerant to, or who failed prior treatment with imatinib only and will
compare the efficacy of CGT9486 plus sunitinib to sunitinib alone with patients being
randomized in a 1:1 manner.
