Bevacizumab and Anetumab Ravtansine or Paclitaxel in Treating Participants with Refractory Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
This phase II trial studies the side effects of bevacizumab and anetumab ravtansine or paclitaxel in treating participants with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that does not respond to treatment. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab and anetumab ravtansine, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, 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 bevacizumab and anetumab ravtansine or paclitaxel may work better in treating participants with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
The main purpose of the study is to evaluate a safe, tolerable recommended Phase II dose (RP2D) and / or the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of M3814 when given in combination with avelumab with and without radiotherapy in participants with selected advanced solid tumors.
A Study Comparing Atezolizumab (Anti PD-L1 Antibody) In Combination With Adjuvant Anthracycline / Taxane-Based Chemotherapy Versus Chemotherapy Alone In Patients With Operable Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of adjuvant atezolizumab in combination with paclitaxel, followed by atezolizumab, dose-dense doxorubicin or epirubicin (investigator's choice), and cyclophosphamide, compared with paclitaxel followed by dose-dense doxorubicin or epirubicin (investigator's choice) and cyclophosphamide alone in patients with Stage II-III TNBC (Triple Negative Breast Cancer)
Animal-Assisted Interactions in Improving Quality of Life in Children with Advanced, Relapsed, or Refractory Cancer and Their Parents
This trial studies how well animal-assisted interactions work in improving quality of life in children with cancer that has spread extensively to other anatomic sites or is no longer responding to treatment, has come back, or does not respond to treatment, and their parents. Having animal-assisted therapy (AAT) visits on a routine basis with a trained animal-handler and his / her dog may help to make the cancer treatment process less stressful for children and their parents.

Imatinib Mesylate and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Philadelphia Chromosome Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
This randomized phase III trial studies how well imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, 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. Giving imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Phase II Open Label Trial to Determine Safety & Efficacy of Tisagenlecleucel in Pediatric Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Patients
The purpose of the study is to assess the efficacy and safety of tisagenlecleucel in children and adolescents with relapsed / refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (r / r B-NHL). For pediatric patients who have r / r B-NHL, survival rates are dismal, only ~20-50% subjects are alive at 2 years with overall response rate (ORR) of 20-30% after conventional salvage chemotherapy.
The study will evaluate the clinical activity of nivolumab in combination with the investigational agent sitravatinib in patients with advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma.
Pembrolizumab Versus Placebo Following Surgery and Radiation in Participants With Locally Advanced Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma (MK-3475-630 / KEYNOTE-630)
This is a randomized, double-blind, study that compares pembrolizumab with placebo given as adjuvant therapy in participants with high-risk locally advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (LA cSCC) that have undergone surgery with curative intent in combination with radiotherapy. The primary hypothesis is that pembrolizumab is superior to placebo in increasing recurrence free survival (RFS).
Gemcitabine Hydrochloride and Cisplatin with or without Nab-Paclitaxel in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Advanced Biliary Tract Cancers
This phase III trial studies how well gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin given with or without nab-paclitaxel work in treating patients with newly diagnosed biliary tract cancers that have spread to other places in the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride, cisplatin, and nab-paclitaxel, 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 known if giving gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin with or without nab-paclitaxel may work better at treating biliary tract cancers.
A Phase III, multicenter, randomized study to compare the rate of complete response (CR) and duration of CR, in patients with TP53-mutated MDS who will receive APR-246 and azacitidine or azacitidine alone.
