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.

The Expression of PTEN Protein and mRNA in Malignant Cells of Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia
University of Arkansas Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the level of a specific protein (PTEN) in the cancer cells of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) patients. This protein might be involved in the transformation from normal blood cells to leukemia cells. The PTEN protein has not been investigated in CMML specifically but it has been discovered in closely related cancers. If this study demonstrates an abnormality in this protein, future testing will be designed to evaluate the genetic abnormality that resulted in lack of the normal presence of this protein. The goal is that the results of this study will help to develop new drugs and strategies to treat the future patients with CMML by understanding the abnormality of the disease at the cellular and molecular levels. The results of this study can also be utilized by future studies to develop individualized treatment to patients who have abnormal levels of this protein.

The purpose of this study is to further advancements in biospecimens (blood cellular free component, e.g., plasma, serum, tissue), in order to develop precision medicine, for lung cancer management and lung cancer screening (synergy with imaging). A co-clinical trial approach,... expand

The purpose of this study is to further advancements in biospecimens (blood cellular free component, e.g., plasma, serum, tissue), in order to develop precision medicine, for lung cancer management and lung cancer screening (synergy with imaging). A co-clinical trial approach, with integrative analyses leveraging data from the treatment of genetic mouse models of lung cancer along with clinical samples and data from lung cancer patients, will be used to elucidate genomic background metrics, identify cell free DNA mutations, and further refine the liquid biopsy approach.

The overarching purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical efficacy of an investigational agent, P10s-PADRE, a peptide mimotope-based vaccine, in combination with standard-of-care (SoC) treatment in subjects with advanced-stage (i.e., metastatic) Lung Cancer. Vaccine will consist of P10s-PADRE admixed with an adjuvant, MONTANIDETM ISA 51 VG. Up to one hundred fifty (150) subjects with advanced-stage Lung Cancer of any histologic type will be enrolled for this vaccine trial. This single-arm, multi-site trial is designed to evaluate the therapeutic benefits of the vaccine in subjects with advanced-stage lung cancer. The primary objectives of the study are: (1) to monitor the safety and tolerability of the vaccine when it is administered in combination with SoC therapy; and (2) to determine whether immunization with vaccine can successfully elicit a robust immune response in subjects with advanced-stage lung cancer.

The Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY) trial is the first ever international multi-center randomized controlled trial in bone cancer surgery. In order to avoid amputation for bone cancer in the leg, complex limb-saving operations are performed. However, infections with devastating complications following surgery are common. Surgeons from across the world will randomize patients to receive either short- or long-duration antibiotic regimens after surgery with the goal of identifying the best regimen to reduce these infections.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide followed by paclitaxel with or without carboplatin work in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, paclitaxel, 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. It is not yet known whether doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide is more effective when followed by paclitaxel alone or paclitaxel and carboplatin in treating triple-negative breast cancer.
