Cancer Clinical Trials & Research

About cCARE’s cancer research

cCARE is proud to offer numerous institutional-grade clinical trials for cancer patients. Clinical trials assess new drug or treatment effectiveness and provide cancer patients with the newest – and possibly most effective – forms of treatment.

Cancer clinical trials are divided into three different phases. Phase I trials assess the safety of a drug or treatment; phase II trials quantify how effective the treatment is while phase III compares the trial to the best existing cancer treatment.

The decision to participate in a cancer clinical trial should be made early in the diagnosis stage because once treatment begins, patients may not be eligible to participate in certain clinical trials. Benefits of participating in cancer clinical trials include access to the newest treatment and medicine designed to fight your particular type of cancer as well as being monitored closely throughout the treatment process.

Although clinical trials provide many benefits, patients must consider the risks as well. Participants may experience unforeseen side effects, the treatment may just not work as well as previous methods and health insurance coverage may not extend to participating in a trial. Speak with your oncologist about whether or not a clinical trial is right for your specific case.

Advanced Breast, Ovarian and Prostate Cancers

Title: A Study Evaluating the Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Efficacy of Ipatasertib Administered in Combination With Rucaparib in Participants With Advanced Breast, Ovarian Cancer, and Prostate Cancer.

This is a study in participants with advanced breast, ovarian, or prostate cancer to investigate the dose, safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary efficacy of ipatasertib in combination with rucaparib. The study consists of two parts: a Dose-Escalation Phase (Part 1) in participants with previously treated advanced breast cancer, ovarian cancer, or prostate cancer and a Dose-Expansion Phase (Part 2) in participants with advanced prostate cancer who have had at least one line of prior therapy with second-generation androgen-receptor (AR)-targeted agents (e.g., abiraterone, enzalutamide, apalutamide).

Advanced Cancer

Title: Study of REGN3767 (Anti-LAG-3) With or Without REGN2810 (Anti-PD1) in Advanced Cancers

Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung Clinical Trial

Title: Study to Test the Safety and How Radium-223 Dichloride an Alpha Particle-emitting Radioactive Agent Works in Combination With Pembrolizumab an Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor in Patients With Stage IV Non-small Cell Lung Cancer With Bone Metastases

The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and test the efficacy of the combination of radium-223 dichloride and pembrolizumab in patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with bone metastases who either have not received any systemic therapy for their advanced disease or have progressed on prior immunologic checkpoint blockade with antibodies against the programmed cell death protein-(ligand) 1 (PD-1/PD-L1). In this study researchers want to measure tumor shrinkage in response to treatment and how long that shrinkage lasts and gather information on safety. Pembrolizumab is an immunologic checkpoint blocker that promotes an immune response against the tumor. Radium-223 dichloride is an alpha particle-emitting radioactive agent which kills cancer cells.

Metastatic or Locally Advanced Solid Tumors Clinical Trial

Title: MSB0011359C (M7824) in Metastatic or Locally Advanced Solid Tumors

The main purpose of this Phase I study is to test MSB0011359C (M7824) at different dose levels to see if it is safe and well tolerated when given once every 2 weeks. Phase I means the study drug has not previously been given to humans or has only been given to a limited number of people, although it has been extensively studied in animals. Based on this information, it is hoped to find out which dose could be best for the treatment of patients. There are two parts of this research study: a dose-escalation part and an expansion part. Dose escalation means that the first people taking part in the study will receive low doses of the study drug, and as more people take part, the additional participants will receive a higher dose. This is done to find the safest dose for the study drug. Expansion means that after the dose-escalation part of the study has looked at the safety and effectiveness of different doses, many more people will be invited to take part in the study and will receive the study drug at the safest dose. Additional purposes of the study are to find out whether the study drug has anti-cancer effects and how the study drug is processed by the body.
