Nivolumab after Combined Modality Therapy in Treating Patients with High Risk Stage II-IIIB Anal Cancer

Gastrointestinal

This phase III trial investigates how well nivolumab after combined modality therapy works in treating patients with high risk stage II-IIIB anal cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Lactobacillus Plantarum in Preventing Acute Graft Versus Host Disease in Children Undergoing Donor Stem Cell Transplant

Multiple Cancer Types

This randomized phase III trial studies how well Lactobacillus plantarum works in preventing acute graft versus host disease in children undergoing donor stem cell transplant. Lactobacillus plantarum may help prevent the development of gastrointestinal graft versus host disease in children, adolescents, and young adults undergoing donor stem cell transplant.

Rucaparib and Nivolumab in Treating Patients with Advanced or Metastatic Biliary Tract Cancer after Platinum Therapy

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase II trial studies how well rucaparib and nivolumab work in treating patients with biliary tract cancer that has spread to other places in the body after platinum therapy. Rucaparib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving rucaparib and nivolumab after platinum therapy may help kill more cancer cells that are left after chemotherapy.

Early Palliative Care in Improving Recovery and Quality of Life in Patients with Cancer Undergoing Abdominal Surgery, the SCOPE Trial

Multiple Cancer Types

This trial studies early palliative care in improving recovery and quality of life in patients with cancer undergoing abdominal surgery. Frequently people diagnosed with cancer experience physical and emotional symptoms during the course of their disease. Introduction to a team of clinicians that specialize in the lessening of many of these distressing symptoms may improve overall care. This team of clinicians is called the palliative care team and they focus on ways to improve pain and other symptom management (i.e. shortness of breath, fatigue, anxiety, etc.) and to assist patients and their families in coping with the emotional, social, and spiritual issues associated with a cancer diagnosis. This study is being done to see if receiving palliative care earlier is more useful compared to receiving palliative care late in the course of illness.

Binimetinib and Palbociclib or TAS-102 in Treating Patients with KRAS and NRAS Mutant Metastatic or Unresectable Colorectal Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase II trial studies how well binimetinib and palbociclib work compared to TAS-102 in treating patients with KRAS and NRAS mutation positive colorectal cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) or cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Binimetinib and palbociclib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as TAS-102, 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 binimetinib and palbociclib may work better compared to TAS-102 alone in treating patients with colorectal cancer.
