This research study tests an investigational drug called DS-3201b. An investigational drug is a medication that is still being studied and has not yet been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA allows DS-3201b to be used only in research. It is not known if DS-3201b will work or not. This study consists of two parts. The first part (Part 1) is a dose escalation that will enroll subjects with AML or ALL that did not respond or no longer respond to previous standard therapy. The purpose of Part 1 of this research study is to determine the highest dose a patient can tolerate or recommended dose of DS-3201b that can be given to subjects with AML or ALL. Once the highest tolerable dose is determined, additional subjects will be enrolled at that dose into Part 2 of the study.
The purpose of the clinical trial is to identify the highest dose of SEL24 / MEN1703 drug with acceptable safety profile and that can be used in patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
Nivolumab and Ipilimumab in Estimating Anti-Tumor Activity and Identifying Potential Predictors of Response in Patients with Melanoma That is Metastatic or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
This phase II trial studies how well nivolumab and ipilimumab work in estimating anti-tumor activity and identifying potential predictors of response in patients with melanoma that is spreading to other places in the body or that cannot be removed by surgery. Monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
Multiple Cancer Types
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of this investigational drug, brigatinib (AP261136) in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have had first-line treatment for their cancer and it still got worse, even after, or while taking drugs called ALK inhibitors, or anti-cancer drugs that act on tumors. Some examples of these anti-cancer drugs are: KEYTRUDA® or ALECENSA®).

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.
This research trial studies skin / soft tissue elasticity in head and neck cancer survivors with lymphedema and fibrosis. Lymphedema and fibrosis is a common effect of head and neck cancer which may lead to skin tightness, pain, and body image issues. Early detection of lymphedema and fibrosis may help reduce serious functional loss of the neck. Shear wave elastography is a technique that provides a quantitative measure of stiffness using a push pulse to generate shear waves within the tissues. Conventional imaging techniques are then used to monitor the shear waves generated through the tissue to calculate the shear wave speed. Shear wave elastography may help obtain an early and accurate measurement of tissue elasticity in head and neck cancer survivors.
Multiple Cancer Types
This research trial studies neuropsychological (learning, remembering or thinking) and behavioral testing in younger patients with cancer. Collecting information over time from a series of tests may help doctors develop effective tests to measure neuropsychological and behavioral function of patients with cancer.
Miscellaneous, Neuro-Oncology, Pediatrics
This clinical trial keeps track of and collects follow-up information from patients who are currently enrolled on or have participated in a Children's Oncology Group study. Developing a way to keep track of patients who have participated in Children's Oncology Group studies may allow doctors learn more about the long-term effects of cancer treatment and help them reduce problems related to treatment and improve patient quality of life.
Multiple Cancer Types
This research trial studies late effects after treatment in patients with previously diagnosed high-risk neuroblastoma. Studying late effects after treatment may help to decide which treatments for high-risk neuroblastoma are better tolerated with less side effects over time.
Neuroblastoma (Pediatrics), Pediatrics
This study is an access and distribution protocol for unlicensed cryopreserved cord blood units (CBUs) in pediatric and adult patients with hematologic malignancies and other indications.
