  • Pembrolizumab, Dabrafenib, and Trametinib Before Surgery for the Treatment of BRAF-Mutated Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer Rochester, MN

    This phase II trial studies the effect of pembrolizumab, dabrafenib, and trametinib before surgery in treating patients with BRAF V600E-mutated anaplastic thyroid cancer. BRAF V600E is a specific mutation (change) in the BRAF gene, which makes a protein that is involved in sending signals in cells and in cell growth. It may increase the growth and spread of tumor cells. Dabrafenib and trametinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with ...

  • Pembrolizumab, Chemotherapy, and Radiation Therapy With or Without Surgery in Treating Patients With Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer Rochester, MN

    This phase II trial studies how well pembrolizumab, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy work with or without surgery in treating patients with anaplastic thyroid cancer. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and 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. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving pembrolizumab, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy with or without surgery ...

  • Inolitazone Dihydrochloride and Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Advanced Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ; Jacksonville, FL; Rochester, MN

    This phase II trial studies how well inolitazone dihydrochloride (efatutazone dihydrochloride) and paclitaxel work in treating patients with anaplastic thyroid cancer that has spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (advanced). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as efatutazone dihydrochloride and paclitaxel, 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.

  • A Study of Immune Profiling of Blood Samples in Patients with Benign and Malignant Thyroid Disorders Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to perform a comprehensive immunophenotypic analysis of peripheral bloods samples from patients with benign and malignant thyroid disease. This data will be used to determine whether patients with advanced thyroid cancers have significantly altered numbers and/or subtypes of circulating immune cells, in particular immunosuppressive monocytes.
