Fulvestrant or Exemestane with or without Ribociclib in Patients with Recurrent, Unresectable, or Metastatic Hormone Receptor Positive, HER2 Negative Breast Cancer
This randomized, phase II trial studies how well fulvestrant or exemestane with or without ribociclib works in treating patients with hormone receptor positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) negative breast cancer that has progressed after treatment with an aromatase inhibitor or cyclin-dependent kinase 4 / 6 inhibitor (recurrent), cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable), or has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic). Hormone therapy using fulvestrant or exemestane may fight breast cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells or reducing the amount of estrogen made by the body. Ribociclib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving fulvestrant or exemestane with ribociclib may be an effective treatment for patients with breast cancer.
Multiple Cancer Types
This randomized phase IIb trial studies how well low-dose carvedilol works in preventing heart failure in cancer survivors exposed to high dose anthracyclines for management of childhood cancer. Patients who received high-dose anthracycline chemotherapy are at a much greater risk for developing heart failure compared to survivors who didn’t get any anthracycline chemotherapy. Heart failure happens when the heart muscle has been weakened and can’t pump blood as well as it should. Carvedilol may help lower the risk of cardiovascular complications.
Nintedanib, Idarubicin Hydrochloride, and Cytarabine in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia
This phase I / II trial studies the side effects of nintedanib, idarubicin hydrochloride, and cytarabine and to see how well they work in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Nintedanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as idarubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine, 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 nintedanib, idarubicin hydrochloride, and cytarabine may work better in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
Iodine I-131 with or without Selumetinib in Treating Patients with Recurrent or Metastatic Thyroid Cancer
This randomized phase II trial studies how well iodine I-131 works with or without selumetinib in treating patients with thyroid cancer that has returned or has spread from where it started to other places in the body. Many thyroid cancers absorb iodine. Due to this, doctors often give radioactive iodine (iodine I-131) alone to treat thyroid cancer as part of standard practice. It is thought that the more thyroid tumors are able to absorb radioactive iodine, the more likely it is that the radioactive iodine will cause those tumors to shrink. Selumetinib may help radioactive iodine work better in patients whose tumors still absorb radioactive iodine. It is not yet known whether iodine I-131 is more effective with or without selumetinib in treating thyroid cancer.
A Trial of the FMS-like Tyrosine Kinase 3 (FLT3) Inhibitor Gilteritinib Administered as Maintenance Therapy Following Allogeneic Transplant for Patients With FLT3 / Internal Tandem Duplication (ITD) Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
The purpose of this study is to compare relapse-free survival between participants with FLT3 / ITD AML in first morphologic complete remission (CR1) who undergo hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HCT) and are randomized to receive gilteritinib or placebo beginning after the time of engraftment for a two year period.
This multi-center, double-blind, vehicle-controlled, randomized crossover design study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of topically applied naloxone lotion, 0.5%, for the treatment of pruritus in patients with the mycosis fungoides (MF) or Sézary syndrome (SS) Forms of Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL). This study will also determine if there is systemic absorption of the drug in a subset of subjects and if so, describe the range and mean plasma levels reached after two weeks of three time daily (TID) dosing.
