Randomized, Open Label, Clinical Study of the Targeted Therapy, Palbociclib, to Treat Metastatic Breast Cancer


The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that the combination of palbociclib with anti-HER2 therapy plus endocrine therapy is superior to anti-HER2-based therapy plus endocrine therapy alone in improving the outcomes of subjects with hormone receptor-positive, HER2+ metastatic breast cancer.

Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Pediatric Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas, or Histiocytic Disorders (The Pediatric MATCH Screening Trial)

Multiple Cancer Types

This Pediatric MATCH screening and multi-sub-study phase II trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in pediatric patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, or histiocytic disorders that have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and / or for which no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong survival. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic changes or abnormalities (mutations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic mutation, and may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors or non-Hodgkin lymphomas.

Nivolumab and Vorolanib in Treating Participants with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Refractory Thoracic Tumors

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best does of vorolanib when given in combination with nivolumab in treating participants with non-small cell lung cancer and thoracic tumors that aren't responding to treatment. 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. Vorolanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving nivolumab and vorolanib may work better in treating participants with non-small cell lung cancer and thoracic tumors.

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


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 with chest wall disease that has come back and cannot be removed by surgery. Monoclonal antibodies, such as carboplatin and pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
