Follicular lymphoma (FL), marginal zone lymphoma (MZL), and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) are distinct histologic types of B-cell NHL. Lenalidomide is an immunomodulatory agent with direct and immune-mediated mechanisms of action, as well as clinical activity in NHL. Recent studies in frontline and relapsed/refractory NHL show high activity for lenalidomide plus rituximab (R2), supporting further study of this combination.

This randomized phase III trial studies olaparib or cediranib maleate and olaparib to see how well they work compared with standard platinum-based chemotherapy in treating patients with platinum-sensitive ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that has come back. Olaparib and cediranib maleate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cediranib maleate may stop the growth of ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, paclitaxel, gemcitabine hydrochloride, and pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride 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. It is not yet known whether olaparib or cediranib maleate and olaparib is more effective than standard platinum-based chemotherapy in treating patients with platinum-sensitive ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.

This randomized phase III trial studies axillary lymph node dissection to see how well it works compared to axillary radiation therapy in treating patients with node-positive breast cancer treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery. Lymph node dissection may remove cancer cells that have spread to nearby lymph nodes in patients with breast cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. This study will evaluate whether radiation therapy is as effective as lymph node dissection.

This is a Phase II, open-label, non-randomized, multi-center study of oral Dabrafenib in combination with oral Trametinib in subjects with rare cancers including anaplastic thyroid cancer, biliary tract cancer, gastrointestinal stromal tumor, non-seminomatous germ cell tumor/non-geminomatous germ cell tumor, hairy cell leukemia, World Health Organization (WHO) Grade 1 or 2 glioma, WHO Grade 3 or 4 (high-grade) glioma, multiple myeloma, and adenocarcinoma of the small intestine, with BRAF V600E positive-mutations. This study is designed to determine the overall response rate (ORR) of oral Dabrafenib in combination with oral Trametinib in subjects with rare BRAF V600E mutated cancers. Subjects will need to have a fresh or frozen tumor tissue sample provided to confirm the BRAF V600E mutation status. Only subjects with histologically confirmed advanced disease and no available standard treatment options will be eligible for enrollment. Subjects will undergo screening assessments within 14 days (up to 35 days for ophthalmology exam, echocardiogram or disease assessments) prior to the start of treatment to determine their eligibility for enrollment in the study.

Eligible patients must also be candidates for autologous stem cell transplant. Patients will be randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to receive 3 cycles of study treatment with either denintuzumab mafodotin + RICE or RICE alone.

This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well cediranib maleate and olaparib work when given together or separately, and compares them to standard chemotherapy in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that has returned after receiving chemotherapy with drugs that contain platinum (platinum-resistant) or continued to grow while being treated with platinum-based chemotherapy drugs (platinum-refractory). Cediranib maleate and olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking enzymes needed for cell growth. 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. It is not yet known whether giving cediranib maleate and olaparib together may cause more damage to cancer cells when compared to either drug alone or standard chemotherapy.

This is an open-label repeat dose, multicenter, 2-part study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) for GSK525762 given once-daily (QD) orally. Part 1 of the study is a dose escalation phase to select the recommended Part 2 dose (RP2D) based on the safety, PK, and PD profiles observed after oral administration of GSK525762. Eligible subjects with select relapsed refractory hematological malignancies (acute myeloid leukemia [AML], non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma [NHL]and multiple myeloma [MM]), will be enrolled in the QD and/or BID dosing cohorts until a MTD is established. Subjects may continue treatment in the study until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or withdrawal of consent. . Upon determination of the MTD, twice daily (BID) dosing cohorts may be opened to collect additional safety data and evaluate the preliminary efficacy of GSK525762 administered BID. Part 2 will explore clinical activity at the MTD or RP2D; separate expansion cohorts will be planned for acute myeloid leukemia (AML), non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL, including an exploratory sub-cohort of subjects with myc and B-Cell Leukemia (BCL)2 and/or BCL6 rearrangements/overexpression [double- and triple-hit lymphoma]), and multiple myeloma (MM). This is the first study of this agent to be conducted in subjects with these relapsed and/or refractory hematological malignancies for which no standard therapies are anticipated to result in a durable remission.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well initial treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab followed by dabrafenib and trametinib works and compares it to initial treatment with dabrafenib and trametinib followed by ipilimumab and nivolumab in treating patients with stage III-IV melanoma that contains a mutation known as BRAFV600 and cannot be removed by surgery. Ipilimumab and nivolumab may block tumor growth by targeting certain cells. Dabrafenib and trametinib may block tumor growth by targeting the BRAFV600 gene. It is not yet known whether treating patients with ipilimumab and nivolumab followed by dabrafenib and trametinib is more effective than treatment with dabrafenib and trametinib followed by ipilimumab and nivolumab.

There have been four previous Total Therapy (TT1 through IIIB) studies for multiple myeloma at the MIRT from 1989 to present. Results have shown that participants treated on these studies had better outcomes (meaning they have lived longer and had better responses to treatment) when compared to individuals treated with standard chemotherapy. Past studies conducted at the MIRT have shown that participants presenting to MIRT who have already received treatment for myeloma tend to have shorter remissions (disappearance of signs and symptoms of myeloma) and do not survive as long as participants who come to MIRT with untreated myeloma. Researchers at MIRT think that one reason for this is may be that the myeloma cells re-grow in the time when participants are not receiving treatment because they are recovering from high-dose chemotherapy. In this study, participants will receive several chemotherapy drugs previously shown to be effective in myeloma, but in lower doses and in shorter cycles. It is hoped that by giving the drugs in this way, myeloma cells will not have time to re-grow between cycles, therefore resulting in longer remissions. This study is being done in an attempt to improve the remission rate and the survival time for participants with high-risk myeloma.

RATIONALE: Giving radiation therapy that uses a 3-dimensional (3-D) image of the tumor to help focus thin beams of radiation directly on the tumor, and giving radiation therapy in higher doses over a shorter period of time, may kill more tumor cells and have fewer side effects. Monoclonal antibodies, such as cetuximab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy is more effective when given alone or together with cetuximab in treating patients with head and neck cancer that has been removed by surgery. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying radiation therapy to see how well it works compared with radiation therapy given together with cetuximab in treating patients who have undergone surgery for locally advanced head and neck cancer.
