  • A Multicenter, Double Blind, Randomized, Controlled Study of M7824 With Concurrent Chemoradiation Followed by M7824 Versus Concurrent Chemoradiation Plus Placebo Followed by Durvalumab in Participants With Unresectable Stage III Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Jacksonville, Fla.

    The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and effectiveness in participants treated with concomitant chemoradiation therapy (cCRT) plus M7824 followed by M7824 compared to cCRT plus placebo followed by durvalumab.

  • A Phase 2 Precision Oncology Study of Biomarker-Directed, Pembrolizumab-(MK-3475, SCH 900475) Based Combination Therapy for Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (KEYNOTE-495; KeyImPaCT) Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the utility of biomarker-based triage for study participants with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) without prior systemic therapy. Study participants within groups defined by a biomarker-based classifier (gene expression profile [GEP] and tumor mutational burden [TMB]) will be randomized to receive pembrolizumab in combination with MK-4280 or lenvatinib. The primary hypotheses are as follows: In participants receiving pembrolizumab in combination with either MK-4280 or lenvatinib, the Objective Response Rate (ORR) will be 1) greater than 5% among participants with low GEP and low TMB, 2) greater than 20% among participants with low GEP and high TMB, 3) greater than 20% among participants with high GEP and low TMB, and 4) greater than 45% among participants with high GEP and high TMB.

  • Phase 1 Safety Run-In and Phase 2 Randomized Clinical Trial of Anetumab Ravtansine and MK-3475 (Pembrolizumab) Compared to MK-3475 (Pembrolizumab) Alone for Mesothelin-Positive Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

    The purpose of this randomized phase I/II trial is to study the side effects and how well pembrolizumab with or without anetumab ravtansine work in treating patients with mesothelin-positive pleural mesothelioma. Monoclonal antibodies, such as anetumab ravtansine and pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

  • Phase 1 Trial to Determine the Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D) of VX-970 When Combined with Whole Brain Radiotherapy (WBRT) in Patients with Brain Metastases from Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

    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.

  • Randomized, Double-Blind, Phase 2/3 Study in Subjects With Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma to Assess ADI-PEG 20 With Pemetrexed and Cisplatin (ATOMIC-Meso Phase 2/3 Study) (ATOMIC) Jacksonville, Fla.

    This is a study of ADI-PEG 20 (pegylated arginine deiminase), an arginine degrading enzyme versus placebo in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma with low argininosuccinate synthetase 1 expression. Malignant pleural mesothelioma have been found to require arginine, an amino acid. Thus the hypothesis is that by restricting arginine with ADI-PEG 20, the malignant pleural mesothelioma cells will starve and die.

  • Registry for the EVolution Of LUng Cancer Therapy Implementation and Outcomes Now (REVOLUTION) Rochester, Minn.

    REVOLUTION will be a US multicenter observational registry in scope and governed by a steering committee of approximately 8 experts in NSCLC and outcomes research. The primary goal of the registry is characterizing patterns of use for NSCLC therapy. REVOLUTION will be a multicenter registry enrolling approximately 2,500 patients. Additional patients limited to those with EGFR mutations may be enrolled following the initial study period as needed to ensure adequate sample sizes needed to examine primary questions of interest in the EGFR mutant population. Patients will be enrolled over a three year period across approximately 25 geographically diverse academic as well as community based sites within the US. The five year follow-up period will ensure robust survival data for correlations with clinical, tumor, and treatment variables.

    The target of 2,500 patients is meant to ensure adequate numbers of NSCLC patients with particular characteristics of interest including patients with adenocarcinoma, and EGFR mutations and effectively evaluate these patients with respect to key outcomes of interest including overall survival, time to progression, stage at progression, secondary metastases including brain metastases (at diagnosis and progression), comorbidity burden, and performance status at index date.

    The study design allows a cross-sectional perspective with collection of detailed patient and clinical characteristics at enrollment followed by longitudinal assessment of clinician and patient-reported endpoints every three months. Centralized follow-up will be conducted by having sites upload patient data following each visit via the web-based data system, with patients who do not show up for site visits being contacted via telephone by the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) call center. Site recruitment and patient enrollment will be weighted based upon provider specialty and ability to enroll patients with NSCLC with the specified inclusion criteria.
