18F-FSPG PET / CT in Imaging Patients with Newly Diagnosed Lung Cancer or Indeterminate Pulmonary Nodules

Lung

This phase II trial compares fluorine F 18 L-glutamate derivative BAY94-9392 (18F-FSPG) positron emission tomography (PET) / computed tomography (CT) to the standard of care fludeoxyglucose F-18 (18F-FDG) PET / CT in imaging patients with newly diagnosed lung cancer or indeterminate pulmonary nodules. PET / CT uses a radioactive glutamate (one of the common building blocks of protein) called 18F-FSPG which may be able to recognize differences between tumor and healthy tissue. Since tumor cells are growing, they need to make protein, and other building blocks, for cell growth that are made from glutamate and other molecules. PET / CT using a radioactive glutamate may be a more effective method of diagnosing lung cancer than the standard PET / CT using a radioactive glucose (sugar), such as 18F-FDG.

Platinum Based Chemotherapy or Capecitabine in Treating Patients with Residual Triple-Negative Basal-Like Breast Cancer following Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy

Breast

This randomized phase III trial studies how well cisplatin or carboplatin (platinum based chemotherapy) works compared to capecitabine in treating patients with remaining (residual) basal-like triple-negative breast cancer following chemotherapy after surgery (neoadjuvant). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, carboplatin and capecitabine, 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. It is not yet known whether cisplatin or carboplatin is more effective than capecitabine in treating patients with residual triple negative basal-like breast cancer.

Carboplatin with or without Atezolizumab in Treating Patients with Stage IV Triple Negative Breast Cancer

Breast

This randomized phase II trial studies how well carboplatin with or without atezolizumab works in treating patients with stage IV triple negative breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, 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. Monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving carboplatin with atezolizumab may work better in treating patients with stage IV triple negative breast cancer.

Observation of Low-Dose Skin Electron Therapy in Patients with Refractory or Relapsed Stage IB-IIIA Mycosis Fungoides

Lymphoma

This trial collects data on response to low-dose skin electron therapy in patients with stage IB-IIIA mycosis fungoides that does not respond to treatment (refractory) or has come back (relapsed). Collecting data on patient's response to therapy, both in terms of changes in the skin and in terms of quality of life following treatment, may help doctors better predict response to therapy.
