The purpose of this research study is to look at the effect of a treatment regimen called CACTUX on head and neck cancer. The CACTUX regimen is a combination of three drugs called cisplatin, nab-paclitaxel, and cetuximab (although carboplatin may be given in place of cisplatin if participants have previously had problems receiving cisplatin). The use of nab-paclitaxel in this combination is different from routine care, in which a drug called 5FU is often given instead, but the investigators group has conducted previous research where the investigators incorporated nab-paclitaxel into routine treatment with cisplatin, 5FU, and cetuximab. The investigators are looking at the incidence of side effects with the CACTUX regimen as well as response of the disease and health status.

The purpose of this study will be to evaluate, in a multi-center setting, the ability of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of breast cancer lumpectomy sites to extend the "final" negative margin and consequently decrease the rates of re-operation. During the initial breast conservation procedure (lumpectomy), immediately following routine surgical resection of the tumor, radiofrequency energy (RFA) is applied to the wall (bed) of the fresh lumpectomy cavity, thus extending tumor free margin radially beyond the volume of the resected specimen.

This randomized phase III trial studies combination chemotherapy with blinatumomab to see how well it works compared to induction chemotherapy alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed breakpoint cluster region (BCR)-c-abl oncogene 1, non-receptor tyrosine kinase (ABL)-negative B lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Monoclonal antibodies, such as blinatumomab, may block cancer growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without blinatumomab in treating newly diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

This is a Phase II study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a human papilloma virus (HPV) therapeutic vaccine called PepCan (HPV 16 E6 peptides combined with Candida skin testing reagent called Candin®) in adult females over a 12 month time period. As the results from the Phase I trial demonstrated some efficacy against non-16 HPV types, Candin alone will also be tested. Therefore, there will be two treatment arms: (1) PepCan and (2) Candin. Subjects found to be eligible for vaccination will be randomized in a double-blinded fashion at a 1:1 ratio. Each participant will be receiving injections four times with three weeks between injections. Clinical and virological responses will be assessed at 6 and 12 months. Safety will be assessed from the time of enrollment to 12 Month Visit. Immunological assessments will be made at 4 time points (prevaccination, after 2 injections, 6 month after 4 injections and 12 months after 4 vaccinations).

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.

The Total Therapy treatment regimens developed at the Myeloma Institute have demonstrated great improvement in treatment outcomes for multiple myeloma patients. However, some patients still relapse early during maintenance treatment meaning that better options are still needed. This study will evaluate a treatment regimen that alternates two different 3-drug regimens every eight weeks for patients that have previously completed autologous stem cell transplant. The two regimens are bortezomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone (VRD) which will be alternated with Elotuzumab, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone (Elo RD). Effectiveness will be measured by the depth of response (i.e., whether or not minimal residual disease (MRD) negative status is achieved). The rate of MRD negativity from this study will be compared to historical control data from the Total Therapy 4 trial which used continuous VRD maintenance therapy after stem cell transplant(s).

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 and at other institutions have shown that participants with high-risk features by gene array studies tend to have shorter remissions (disappearance of signs and symptoms of myeloma) and do not survive as long as participants with low-risk myeloma. Researchers at MIRT think that one reason for this is 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.
