Multiple Cancer Types
This randomized phase III trial studies how well blinatumomab works compared with standard combination chemotherapy in treating patients with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia that has returned after a period of improvement (relapsed). Immunotherapy with blinatumomab, may induce changes in body’s immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. It is not yet known whether standard combination chemotherapy is more effective than blinatumomab in treating relapsed B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Yttrium Y 90 Resin Microspheres in Collecting Data from Patients with Liver Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery for the RESIN Liver Tumor Study
This research trial studies Yttrium Y 90 resin microspheres in collecting data from patients with liver cancer not capable of being removed by surgery (unresectable) for the radiation-emitting SIR-spheres in non-resectable (RESIN) liver tumor study. The information generated will help doctors better understand treatment patterns involving Y90 therapy, gain additional insights in the long-term outcomes for patients, as well as guide future research for using Y90 therapy, especially for those conditions where data is currently very limited or lacking.
18F-FSPG PET / CT in Imaging Patients with Newly Diagnosed Lung Cancer or Indeterminate Pulmonary Nodules
This phase II trial compares fluorine F 18 L-glutamate derivative BAY94-9392 (18F-FSPG) positron emission tomography (PET) / computed tomography (CT) to the standard of care fludeoxyglucose F-18 (18F-FDG) PET / CT in imaging patients with newly diagnosed lung cancer or indeterminate pulmonary nodules. PET / CT uses a radioactive glutamate (one of the common building blocks of protein) called 18F-FSPG which may be able to recognize differences between tumor and healthy tissue. Since tumor cells are growing, they need to make protein, and other building blocks, for cell growth that are made from glutamate and other molecules. PET / CT using a radioactive glutamate may be a more effective method of diagnosing lung cancer than the standard PET / CT using a radioactive glucose (sugar), such as 18F-FDG.
Genetic Testing in Screening Patients with Stage IB-IIIA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Been or Will Be Removed by Surgery (The ALCHEMIST Screening Trial)
Multiple Cancer Types
This phase III ALCHEMIST trial studies genetic testing in screening patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been or will be removed by surgery. Studying the genes in a patient’s tumor cells may help doctors select the best treatment for patients that have certain genetic changes.

Erlotinib Hydrochloride in Treating Patients with Stage IB-IIIA Non-small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Been Completely Removed by Surgery (An ALCHEMIST Treatment Trial)
This phase III ALCHEMIST trial studies how well erlotinib hydrochloride compared to observation works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been completely removed by surgery. Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
Characterization of Cardiac Function, Pulmonary Function, and Body Composition Before and After Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy for Head and Neck Cancer
Gabapentin Compared to Usual Care in Preventing Mucositis in Participants with Stage III-IV Head and Neck Cancer Undergoing Primary or Adjuvant Chemoradiation Therapy
This randomized phase III trial studies how well gabapentin and usual care work compared to usual care alone in preventing inflammation of the mucous membranes (mucositis) in patients with stage III-IV head and neck cancer that are undergoing primary or subsequent (adjuvant) chemoradiation therapy. Radiation therapy to the head and neck may cause a burn involving the inside of the mouth, throat, and nasal passages, resulting in pain. Gabapentin may help prevent (or minimize) radiation-induced mucositis in patients with head and neck cancer.
