A Study of DS-6000a in Subjects With Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma and Ovarian Tumors

Multiple Cancer Types

This clinical trial will evaluate raludotatug deruxtecan (R-DXd; DS-6000a) in participants
with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and ovarian cancer (OVC). The main goals of this
study will be to investigate the recommended dose of R-DXd that can be given safely to
participants, assess the side effects of R-DXd, and evaluate the effectiveness of R-DXd.

Genetic Testing to Select Therapy for the Treatment of Advanced or Metastatic Kidney Cancer, OPTIC RCC Study

Kidney (Renal Cell)

This phase II trial tests whether using genetic testing of tumor tissue to select the optimal treatment regimen works in treating patients with clear cell renal cell (kidney) cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced or metastatic). The current Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved regimens for advanced kidney cancer fall into two categories. One treatment combination includes two immunotherapy drugs (nivolumab plus ipilimumab), which are delivered by separate intravenous infusions into a vein. The other combination is one immunotherapy drug (nivolumab infusion) plus an oral pill taken by mouth (cabozantinib). Nivolumab and ipilimumab are immunotherapies which release the brakes of the immune system, thus allowing the patient's own immune system to better kill cancer cells. Cabozantinib is a targeted therapy specifically designed to block certain biological mechanisms needed for growth of cancer cells. In kidney cancer, cabozantinib blocks a tumors blood supply. The genetic (DNA) makeup of the tumor may affect how well it responds to therapy. Testing the makeup (genes) of the tumor, may help match a treatment (from one of the above two treatment options) to the specific cancer and increase the chance that the disease will respond to treatment. The purpose of this study is to learn if genetic testing of tumor tissue may help doctors select the optimal treatment regimen to which advanced kidney cancer is more likely to respond.

Monitoring Disease Burden and Biology using Tumor Cell Free DNA in Metastatic Kidney Cancer

Kidney (Renal Cell)

This study assesses whether DNA released by kidney cancer into the blood stream and urine of patients can be used to monitor tumor burden and tumor response to treatment in patients receiving immunotherapy. Studying samples of blood and urine from patients with kidney cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) in the laboratory may help doctors predict how well patients will respond to treatment.
