Combination Chemotherapy with or without Temsirolimus in Treating Patients with Intermediate Risk Rhabdomyosarcoma

This randomized phase III trial studies how well combination chemotherapy (vincristine sulfate, dactinomycin, cyclophosphamide alternated with vincristine sulfate and irinotecan hydrochloride or vinorelbine) works compared to combination chemotherapy plus temsirolimus in treating patients with rhabdomyosarcoma (cancer that forms in the soft tissues, such as muscle), and has an intermediate chance of coming back after treatment (intermediate risk). Drugs used in chemotherapy 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. Combination chemotherapy and temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy or combination chemotherapy plus temsirolimus is more effective in treating patients with intermediate-risk rhabdomyosarcoma.

Cisplatin, Romidepsin and Nivolumab in Treating Patients with Locally Recurrent or Metastatic Triple Negative Breast Cancer

Breast

This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of romidepsin when given together with cisplatin and nivolumab, to see how well they work in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer that has come back at or near the same place as the original (primary) tumor, usually after a period of time during which the cancer could not be detected or spread to other parts of the body. Romidepsin may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, 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. Romidepsin may also help cisplatin work better. Monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving romidepsin together with cisplatin and nivolumab may be a better treatment for tripe negative breast cancer.

Nivolumab after Surgery and Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Stage IB-IIIA Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (An ALCHEMIST Treatment Trial)

This phase III ALCHEMIST trial studies how well nivolumab after surgery and chemotherapy work in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer. 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.

Afatinib and Necitumumab in Treating Patients with EGFR Mutation Positive Advanced or Metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of afatinib and necitumumab and to see how well they work in treating patients with EGFR mutation positive non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Afatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as necitumumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving afatinib and necitumumab may work better in treating patients with EGFR mutation positive non-small cell lung cancer.

Nintedanib, Idarubicin Hydrochloride, and Cytarabine in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Leukemia

This phase I / II trial studies the side effects of nintedanib, idarubicin hydrochloride, and cytarabine and to see how well they work in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Nintedanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as idarubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine, 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 nintedanib, idarubicin hydrochloride, and cytarabine may work better in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

Tepotinib Phase II in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Harboring MET Alterations

Lung

This study will look at how effective the study drug (tepotinib) is at stopping the growth and spread of lung cancer. This study will also measure a number of other things including safety of the study drug and the side effects, how body processes the study drug, or how the study drug affects your quality of life. The study also has an optional pharmacogenetic research part. Pharmacogenetic research is an important way to try to understand the role of genetics in human disease and how genes impact the effectiveness of drugs, because differences in genes can change the way a person responds to a particular drug.
