Integrated Telehealth or In-Person Palliative Care in Improving Quality of Life in Patients with Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Multiple Cancer Types
This randomized clinical trial studies how well integrated telehealth or in-person palliative care works in improving quality of life in patients with non-small lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Early involvement in palliative care may lesson many of the distressing physical and emotional symptoms and help patients and their families cope with serious illness as well as improve patients’ and their loved ones’ experience with cancer. Integrated telehealth palliative care involves patients meeting with palliative care clinicians using secure video-conferencing technology. It is not yet known whether giving integrated telehealth or in-person palliative care works better for patients and their families in improving quality of life.

A Phase 2 Multicenter Study of Axicabtagene Ciloleucel in Subjects With Relapsed / Refractory Indolent Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
This study will enroll approximately 160 adult subjects who have relapsed or refractory (r / r) iNHL to be infused with the study treatment, axicabtagene ciloleucel, to see if their disease responds to this experimental product and if this product is safe. Axicabtagene ciloleucel is made from the subjects own white blood cells which are genetically modified and grown to fight cancer. An objective response rate of 70% is targeted.
Nivolumab and Relatlimab or Ipilimumab in Treating Patients with Locally Advanced, Unresectable, or Metastatic Melanoma
This phase II trial studies how well nivolumab given together with relatlimab or ipilimumab works in treating patients with melanoma that has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced), cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable), or has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, relatlimab, and ipilimumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
ASTX727 and FT-2102 in Treating Patients with IDH1-Mutated Recurrent or Refractory Myelodysplastic Syndrome or Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Multiple Cancer Types
This phase Ib / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of FT-2102 when given together with ASTX727 in treating patients with IDH1-mutated myelodysplastic syndrome or acute myeloid leukemia that has come back (recurrent) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). ASTX727 is an oral deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) methyltransferase (DNMT) inhibitor. DNA methylation is necessary for cell differentiation and development. Changes to the methylation profile can lead to DNA instability which can cause diseases like cancer. DNMT inhibitors target and inhibit these changes. FT-2102 is an isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) inhibitor. IDH1 is a type of protein involved in metabolism, or the process of providing the body’s cells with energy. FT-2102 may stop the abnormal IDH1 protein and may reduce 2-HG levels in diseased cells to levels found in normal cells. Giving ASTX727 and FT-2102 may work better in treating patients with myelodysplastic syndrome or acute myeloid leukemia compared to ASTX727 and FT-2102 alone.

Ruxolitinib Phosphate before and after Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients with Primary or Secondary Myelofibrosis
This phase II trial studies how well ruxolitinib phosphate before and after stem cell transplant works in treating patients with primary or secondary myelofibrosis. Ruxolitinib phosphate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fludarabine and melphalan, 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 chemotherapy before a donor stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cells in the bone marrow, including normal blood-forming cells (stem cells) and cancer cells. It may also stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The donated stem cells may also replace the patient’s immune cells and help destroy any remaining cancer cells.
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.
Atezolizumab, Paclitaxel, Trastuzumab, and Pertuzumab in Treating Patients with HER2 Positive Breast Cancer That Is Locally Recurrent, Metastatic, or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
This phase IIa trial studies the side effects of atezolizumab when given together with paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab and to see how well it works in treating patients with HER2 positive breast cancer that has come back at or near the same place as the original (primary) tumor (locally recurrent), has spread to other places in the body (metastatic), or cannot be removed by surgery. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Trastuzumab is a form of targeted therapy because it works by attaching itself to specific molecules (receptors) on the surface of cancer cells, known as HER2 receptors. When trastuzumab attaches to HER2 receptors, the signals that tell the cells to grow are blocked and the cancer cell may be marked for destruction by the body's immune system. Pertuzumab is a monoclonal antibody that 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. Giving atezolizumab, paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab may work better in treating patients with HER2 positive breast cancer.
A Study to Compare the Administration of Pembrolizumab after Surgery Versus Administration both before and after Surgery for High-Risk Melanoma
This phase II trial studies how pembrolizumab works before and after surgery in treating patients with stage III-IV high-risk melanoma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving pembrolizumab before and after surgery may work better compared to after surgery alone in treating melanoma.
