The phase 1 primary objectives of this study are to assess the safety profile, characterize pharmacokinetics (PK) and determine the dosing schedule, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), and recommended phase 2 dose (RPTD) of ABT-199 (venetoclax) when administered in subjects with relapsed... expand

The phase 1 primary objectives of this study are to assess the safety profile, characterize pharmacokinetics (PK) and determine the dosing schedule, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), and recommended phase 2 dose (RPTD) of ABT-199 (venetoclax) when administered in subjects with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. This study will also assess the safety profile and PK of venetoclax in combination with dexamethasone in subjects with t(11;14)-positive multiple myeloma. The phase 2 primary objective is to further evaluate the objective response rate (ORR) and very good partial response or better rate (VGPR+) in subjects with t(11;14)-positive multiple myeloma.

This randomized phase II trial studies radiation therapy and cisplatin with triapine to see how well they work compared to the standard radiation therapy and cisplatin alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage IB2, II, or IIIB-IVA cervical cancer or stage II-IVA vaginal cancer. Radiation therapy uses high energy protons to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. 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. Triapine may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy and cisplatin are more effective with triapine in treating cervical or vaginal cancer.

Glioblastoma (GBM) and gliosarcoma (GS) are the most common and aggressive forms of malignant primary brain tumor in adults and can be resistant to conventional therapies. The purpose of this Phase Ib study is to evaluate how well a recurrent glioblastoma or gliosarcoma tumor responds to one injection of DNX-2401, a genetically modified, conditionally replicative and oncolytic human-derived adenovirus. DNX-2401 is delivered directly into the tumor where it may establish an active infection by replicating in and killing tumor cells.

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 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 study is a prospective collection of data utilizing the Imaging Beta Probe (IBP) in patients with positron emission tomography (PET) positive disease. A pilot clinical study involving 5 patients will be conducted using the IBP. The sterilized IBP will be used intraoperatively in surgical wounds for localization of tumor sites and detecting completeness of excision vs. positive margins. The outcome of each of these studies will be documented and used to demonstrate clinical benefits of the new probe. The investigators will correlate the images from the probe of the Fludeoxyglucose (18FDG) positive tissue, both in-vivo and ex-vivo after dissection, with the previously performed PET scan and with the routine pathology results obtained on the surgical specimens.The experimental imaging modality studied in this protocol will be compared to clinically utilized modalities of ultrasound and PET/ CT. Localization between imaging modalities will be compared with respect to: detection and side of localization.

The intent for this study is to do a retrospective chart review of all patients who have undergone minimally invasive parathyroidectomy for primary hyperthyroidism. All data collected will be recorded under assigned identification numbers that will have no association with medical record or hospital numbers. Identifying characteristics will include age and sex. Anonymity will be upheld. The patient/family will not be contacted directly. All information will be obtained from the medical chart. Demographics, location, preoperative PTH levels and intraoperative Ex-Vivo gamma counts, co-morbid conditions, and the outcome based on the hospital notes will be obtained from patients' charts and will be transferred to a secure database. It is our hypothesis that there is a linear relationship between immediate preoperative parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels and Ex-Vivo gamma counts and the aim of this study is to better describe this relationship.

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.
