The purpose of this study is to assess the side effects and best dose of ATR kinase inhibitor VX-970 when given together with whole brain radiation therapy for the treatment of patients who have non-small cell lung cancer that has spread from the original (primary) tumor to the brain. VX-970 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving VX-970 together with radiation therapy may be a better treatment for non-small cell lung cancer.

Background: Sometimes the cancer advanced alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) cannot be helped with surgery or other treatment. The drug atezolizumab unblocks the immune system. This allows immune cells to recognize and attack tumor cells. The drug could shrink cancer but could also have side effects. Researchers want to study if the drug will shrink a tumor in people with advanced ASPS. Objective: To test good and bad effects of the drug atezolizumab. Eligibility: People at least 6 years old with ASPS that cannot be cured with surgery Design: Participants will be screened with heart and pregnancy tests. Some may have scans or other tests. At the study start, participants will have: - Medical history - Physical exam - Heart, blood, and pregnancy tests - Scan to measure tumor - Optional tumor sample taken Each study cycle is 21 days. In cycle 1: - On day 1, participants will have blood tests. They will get the study drug in a vein for about 1 hour. They will be observed for a few hours after. - On days 8 and 15, participants will have blood tests. In other cycles: - On day 1, participants will get the study drug in a vein for about 1 hour. - On days 1 and 15, participants will have blood tests. Some participants will have a tumor sample taken in cycle 3. Participants will have tumor scans at the end of cycle 3 and then every 2 cycles. Participants can stay in the study as long as their cancer does not get worse. Participants will be observed for 30 days after stopping the study drug.

This is a Phase 1b/2a, open-label, multi-center, non-randomized, dose-escalation study of PT-112 in combination with the anti-PD-L1 antibody, avelumab, in selected advanced solid tumors. The study is to be conducted in two parts: the Dose Escalation Phase of PT-112 within the combination and the Dose Confirmation Phase. The Dose Escalation Phase will determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) and recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of PT-112 in the combination as avelumab will be administered at a flat dose of 800 mg. The trial will evaluate the PK (pharmacokinetic) effects of PT-112 and the safety and tolerability of the combination as well as preliminary clinical effects. The Dose Confirmation Phase will consist of two additional cohorts in patients with non-small cell lung cancer or urothelial carcinoma who will be treated at or below the MTD of PT-112 in the combination.
The treatment for postmenopausal women diagnosed with hormone receptor positive (HR+) metastatic breast cancer (mBr) includes endocrine therapy However, de novo or acquired resistance to endocrine therapy remains an important clinical problem. Many hormone receptor positive breast cancers demonstrate overexpression of cyclin D. Cyclin D interacts directly with cyclin-dependent kinases 4 and 6 (CDK4/6) in an active protein complex that promotes cell proliferation; and consequently, CDK4/6 represents a potential therapeutic target for HR+ breast cancers.
LY2835219 represents a selective and potent small molecule inhibitor of CDK4/6. LY2835219 demonstrates suitable physical and pharmacokinetic (PK) properties, an acceptable toxicity profile in nonclinical species, and antitumor activity in multiple mouse models of human cancer,. LY2835219 inhibits tumor growth in multiple human xenograft models including, but not limited to, the following tumor types: 1) colorectal cancer, 2) glioblastoma multiforme, 3) acute myeloid leukemia, 4) non-small cell lung cancer, and 5) mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).
Importantly, LY2835219 has demonstrated early evidence of single-agent activity against HR+ mBC in study I3Y-MC-JPBA. I3Y-MC-JPBA is being amended to include an expanded cohort of postmenopausal women with disease progression following antiestrogen therapy who are receiving fulvestrant. The Phase 1b study I3Y-MC-JPBH (JPBH) will further evaluate the safety and tolerability of LY2835219 in combination with hormone therapies for patients with advanced and/or HR+ mBC.
This is a multicenter, open-label, Phase 1 study in participants with colorectal cancer (CRC), and consists of Part A (dose regimen finding), followed by Part B (dose expansion). Part A (dose regimen finding) will involve dose escalation and possible dose interval modification to define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) and schedule. Part B (dose expansion) will enroll additional participants who will be treated with a study drug dose at or below the MTD determined in Part A.

Study PT-112-102, a multicenter, open-label dose-finding and pharmacokinetic study of PT-112 in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. This is designed as a two-part study. In the first part of the study, cohorts of three patients (expanded to six patients in the event of a dose-limiting toxicity) will receive escalating doses of PT-112 until the MTD is reached, based on tolerability observed during the first 28 days of treatment. In the second part of the study, an expansion cohort of 14 patients will be treated at the recommended dose to confirm the tolerability of treatment and evaluate evidence of treatment efficacy.

This phase 1 first-in-human (FIH) dose escalation study will determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of KO-947 in subjects with locally advanced unresectable or metastatic, relapsed and/or refractory, non-hematological malignancies. If an MTD cannot be identified, a recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) will be determined. In addition, two tumor specific extension cohorts may be conducted to further characterize the safety and tolerability of KO-947 and provide preliminary evidence of anti-tumor activity.
