Hypofractionated Radiotherapy Followed by Immediate Surgery for the Treatment of Soft Tissue Sarcomas

Sarcoma

This phase II trial studies the effect of hypofractionated radiotherapy followed by immediate surgery in treating patients with soft tissue sarcoma. Hypofractionated radiation therapy delivers higher doses of radiation therapy over a shorter period of time and may kill more tumor cells and have fewer side effects. Giving hypofractionated radiotherapy followed by immediate surgery may allow patients with sarcomas to be treated in a much more rapid and convenient fashion.

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery for Pain Management in Patients with Extremity Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Sarcoma

This clinical trial studies the effect of the ERAS pain management method in managing pain after surgery in patients with extremity soft tissue sarcoma. Enhanced Recovery After Surgery, or ERAS, is a pain management method that places emphasis on managing risk factors (things like smoking, nutrition and fitness), using multiple types of pain control, and early movement, with the goal of improving patient outcomes. ERAS has been shown to reduce the length of time some patients stay in the hospital, reduce complications from surgery, and even lower costs of some surgeries. ERAS is designed may help cut down on the use of these narcotics in managing the pain of surgery patients. The purpose of this trial is to demonstrate that ERAS is safe and effective for patients having surgery to treat their sarcoma. Specifically, this study will look at using a non-narcotic pain management program that includes other methods of managing the pain of sarcoma surgery patients.

Testing the Addition of Nivolumab to Chemotherapy in Treatment of Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Sarcoma

This phase II trial studies how well paclitaxel with and without nivolumab works in treating patients with soft tissue sarcoma that have not received taxane drugs, and how well nivolumab and cabozantinib work in treating taxane pretreated patients with soft tissue sarcoma. Nivolumab works through the bodys immune system to help the immune system act against tumor cells. Chemotherapy drugs, 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. Cabozantinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. This trial is being done to see if the combination of nivolumab and paclitaxel or cabozantinib can shrink soft tissue sarcoma and possibly prevent it from coming back.

Testing Atezolizumab Alone or Atezolizumab Plus Bevacizumab in People with Advanced Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma

Sarcoma

This phase II trial studies how well atezolizumab or atezolizumab plus bevacizumab works in treating patients with alveolar soft part sarcoma that has not been treated, has spread from where it started to other places in the body (advanced) and cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Atezolizumab works by unblocking the immune system, allowing the immune system cells to recognize and then attack tumor cells. Bevacizumab works by controlling the growth of new blood vessels. Giving atezolizumab alone or atezolizumab with bevacizumab may shrink the cancer.

Evolutionary Inspired Therapy for the Treatment of Fusion Positive Newly Diagnosed or Metastatic Rhabdomyosarcoma

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase II trial investigates evolutionary inspired therapy in treating fusion positive rhabdomyosarcoma that is newly diagnosed or has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Chemotherapy drugs, such as vinorelbine, vincristine sulfate, and actinomycin D, 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. Cyclophosphamide is used to decrease the body's immune response and may inhibit DNA replication and initiate cell death. This study is being done to determine which of 4 different therapeutic treatments will have the best chance of the disease not worsening or coming back.

ENVASARC: Envafolimab And Envafolimab With Ipilimumab In Patients With Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma Or Myxofibrosarcoma

Sarcoma

This is a multicenter open-label, randomized, non-comparative, parallel cohort pivotal study of treatment with envafolimab (cohort A and C) or envafolimab combined with ipilimumab (cohort B and D) in patients with locally advanced, unresectable or metastatic undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS) / myxofibrosarcoma (MFS) who have progressed on one or two lines of chemotherapy.

Spearhead 1 Study in Subjects With Advanced Synovial Sarcoma or Myxoid / Round Cell Liposarcoma

Sarcoma

This is a study to investigate the efficacy and safety of ADP-A2M4 in HLA-A*02 eligible and MAGE-A4 positive subjects with metastatic or inoperable (advanced) Synovial Sarcoma (Cohort 1 and Cohort 2) or MRCLS (Cohort 1) .

Talimogene Laherparepvec and Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Soft Tissue Sarcoma That Can Be Removed by Surgery

Sarcoma

This phase II trial studies the side effects of talimogene laherparepvec and radiation therapy and to see how well they work in treating patients with newly diagnosed soft tissue sarcoma that can be removed by surgery. 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 cancer cells from growing. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays, photons. electrons, or protons to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving talimogene laherparepvec and radiation therapy may work better in treating patients with soft tissue sarcoma.

Nivolumab with or without Azacitidine in Treating Patients with Recurrent Resectable Osteosarcoma

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase I / II trial studies the best dose and side effects of azacitidine and how well it works with or without nivolumab in treating patients with osteosarcoma that has come back (recurrent) and can be removed by surgery (resectable). 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. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as azacitidine, 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 nivolumab and azacitidine together may work better compared to nivolumab alone in treating patients with osteosarcoma.
