This current study has been designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of giving seven injections of PepCan or placebo over approximately a 24-month period in subjects with head and neck cancers who achieved remission. PepCan may prove to be beneficial in treating many stages of HPV-related malignancies starting from infection to cancer. Safety, efficacy in terms of reduced cancer recurrence, immunological responses and profiles, and gut microbiome changes will be assessed.

This phase II/III trial studies how well chemotherapy and radiation therapy (chemoradiation) with or without atezolizumab works in treating patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide, cisplatin, and carboplatin, 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. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. 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. Giving chemoradiation with or without atezolizumab may work better in treating patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer.

Study AG348-C-006 will evaluate the efficacy and safety of orally administered AG-348 as compared with placebo in participants with pyruvate kinase deficiency (PKD), who are not regularly receiving blood transfusions. Participants will be randomized 1:1 to receive either AG-348 or matching placebo. The study is comprised of two parts. During the Part 1 Dose Optimization Period of the study, participants will start on a dose of 5 mg AG-348 administered twice daily. Over the course of Part 1, each participant's dose of AG-348 may be sequentially increased to 20 mg twice a day, followed by 50 mg twice a day depending on their tolerance. During the Part 2 Fixed-Dose Period, participants will receive AG-348 at their optimized dose from Part 1.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works in preventing recurrence in patients with stage IIa-IIIa cancer who have undergone mastectomy. Hypofractionated radiation therapy delivers higher doses of radiation therapy over a shorter period of time and may kill more tumor cells that remain after surgery and have fewer side effects.

This screening and multi-sub-study randomized phase II/III trial will establish a method for genomic screening of similar large cancer populations followed by assigning and accruing simultaneously to a multi-sub-study hybrid Master Protocol (Lung-MAP). The type of cancer trait (biomarker) will determine to which sub-study, within this protocol, a participant will be assigned to compare new targeted cancer therapy, designed to block the growth and spread of cancer, or combinations to standard of care therapy with the ultimate goal of being able to approve new targeted therapies in this setting. In addition, the protocol includes non-match sub-studies which will include all screened patients not eligible for any of the biomarker-driven sub-studies.

This study will evaluate the ability of Expanded Natural Killer (ENK) cells to treat multiple myeloma when administered as part of a regimen consisting of Elotuzumab and a stem cell transplant. Natural killer cells are a special type of white blood cells that are already present in the body which have the ability to kill myeloma cells. In this study, natural killer cells will be collected and then treated in a laboratory to activate and 'expand' the number of cells to increase the dose and the anti-myeloma activity of the cells before they are transfused back into the subject. Elotuzumab is a protein drug approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients with previously treated multiple myeloma and works by activating natural killer cells already present in the body and targeting a protein called SLAMF7 which is present on both natural killer cells and myeloma cells. The investigators hope that administering Elotuzumab in combination with ENK cells will enhance the anti-myeloma activity of the ENK cells.

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.

Overall, this proposal seeks to improve treatment strategies for the significant public health problem of prescription opioid dependence by determining whether gabapentin, a non-narcotic pharmaceutical agent with minimal abuse potential and preliminary efficacy, will be effective in ameliorating withdrawal symptoms, craving and illicit drug use in prescription opioid dependent participants undergoing a 10-day detoxification from buprenorphine. In addition, the acceptability and feasibility of transitioning to depot naltrexone therapy will also be determined. If successful, this study would provide data to support further development of gabapentin as a pharmacological tool for improved outcomes during opioid detoxification as well as an integrated outpatient approach for treating prescription opioid dependence.
