A Study to Compare the Administration of Pembrolizumab after Surgery Versus Administration both before and after Surgery for High-Risk Melanoma

Melanoma

This phase II trial studies how pembrolizumab works before and after surgery in treating patients with stage III-IV high-risk melanoma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving pembrolizumab before and after surgery may work better compared to after surgery alone in treating melanoma.

Testing MK-3475 (Pembrolizumab) as Adjuvant Therapy for Triple Receptor-Negative Breast Cancer

Breast

This randomized phase III trial studies how well pembrolizumab works in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Study of Pembrolizumab Given Prior to Surgery and in Combination With Radiotherapy Given Post-surgery for Advanced Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (MK-3475-689)

Head/Neck

This is a randomized, active-controlled, open-label study of pembrolizumab (Pembro) given prior to surgery and pembrolizumab in combination with standard of care radiotherapy (with or without cisplatin), as post-surgical therapy in treatment naïve participants with newly diagnosed Stage III / IVA, resectable, locoregionally advanced, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (LA-HNSCC). Efficacy outcomes will be stratified by programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) combined positive score (CPS) status. The primary hypothesis is that pembrolizumab given before surgery and after surgery in combination with radiotherapy (with or without cisplatin) improves major pathological response and event-free survival compared to radiotherapy (with or without cisplatin) given after surgery alone.

A Phase 1 / 2, Study Evaluating the Safety, Tolerability, PK, and Efficacy of AMG 510 in Subjects With Solid Tumors With a Specific KRAS Mutation (CodeBreak 100)

Multiple Cancer Types

Evaluate the safety and tolerability of AMG 510 in adult subjects with KRAS p.G12C mutant advanced solid tumors. Estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and / or a recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) in adult subjects with KRAS p.G12C mutant advanced solid tumors.

Talimogene Laherparepvec and Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients with Stage III-IV Melanoma

Melanoma

This phase II trial studies how well talimogene laherparepvec and pembrolizumab work in treating patients with stage III-IV melanoma. Biological therapies, such as talimogene laherparepvec, use substances made from living organisms that may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop tumor cells from growing. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving talimogene laherparepvec and pembrolizumab may work better in treating patients with melanoma by shrinking the tumor.

Testing the Timing of Pembrolizumab Alone or With Chemotherapy as First Line Treatment and Maintenance in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase III trial studies whether pembrolizumab alone as a first-line treatment, followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab after disease progression is superior to induction with pembrolizumab, pemetrexed and carboplatin followed by pembrolizumab and pemetrexed maintenance in treating patients with stage IV non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed and 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. It is not yet known whether giving first-line pembrolizumab followed by pemetrexed and carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab works better in treating patients with non-squamous non-small cell cancer.

Carboplatin with or without Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients with Advanced Breast Cancer with Locally Recurrent Chest Wall Disease That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

Breast

This randomized phase II trial studies how well carboplatin with or without pembrolizumab work in treating patients with breast cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced) with chest wall disease that has come back (locally recurrent) and cannot be removed by surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Phase II Open Label, Study of IMMU-132 in Metastatic Urothelial Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This is an international, multi-center, open-label, phase II study in patients with metastatic urothelial cancer after failure of platinum-based regimen or anti-PD-1 / PD-L1 based immunotherapy. At least 201 patients are anticipated to be enrolled across approximately 40 sites from North America and Europe.

Radiation Therapy and Pembrolizumab or Cisplatin in Treating Patients with Stage III / IV p16 Positive Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Head/Neck

This phase II trial studies how well radiation therapy works when given with pembrolizumab or cisplatin in treating patients with stages III / IV p16-positive head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, 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 giving pembrolizumab during and after radiation therapy or cisplatin during radiation therapy works better in treating participants with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
