Effects of Intravenous Ferric Carboxymaltose on Phosphorus and FGF23 Levels

Our research group is currently conducting a 6-8 -week study on patients with iron deficiency anemia to determine the effect of treating iron deficiency anemia with intravenous ferric carboxymaltose therapy on FGF23 and phosphorus levels. A single dose of ferric carboxymaltose has been shown to increase FGF23 levels in the short-term, but the long-term effects of ferric carboxymaltose on FGF23 levels in iron deficient patients are not known. We are conducting this research study to understand the effects of intravenous ferric carboxymaltose therapy on blood levels of FGF23 in individuals with iron deficiency anemia. The information gained from this study could be used to improve the health of patients with iron deficiency anemia.

The purpose of this study is to test the good and bad effects of the study drug, pembrolizumab, in combination with routine care using paclitaxel and carboplatin chemotherapy.
Participants will be adults with cancer in the lining of the uterus (endometrium) that has spread to other parts of the body or has returned after initial treatment.

A Phase II Randomized, Open-label, Multi-center Study of the Safety and Efficacy of IMCgp100 Compared with Investigator’s Choice in HLA-A*0201 Positive Patients with Previously Untreated Advanced Uveal Melanoma

This research study is investigating a drug (that is called IMCgp100) in patients with advanced uveal melanoma. Uveal melanoma is generally treated with either chemotherapy or drugs that work by activating the immune system, known as immunotherapies. In this research study, IMCgp100 will be compared to three representative standard treatments: dacarbazine (a chemotherapy drug), ipilimumab (an immunotherapy drug targeting a protein called CTLA-4), or pembrolizumab (an immunotherapy drug targeting a protein called PD-1). This research study is being done to assess the efficacy and safety of the IMCgp100 in patients with uveal melanoma in comparison to these standard treatments.

(xIRB) NCI CIRB: SWOG 1612: A RANDOMIZED PHASE II/III TRIAL OF “NOVEL THERAPEUTICS” VERSUS AZACITIDINE IN NEWLY DIAGNOSED PATIENTS WITH ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA (AML) OR HIGH-RISK MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROME (MDS), AGE 60 OR OLDER (LEAP: LESS-INTENSE AML PLATFORM TRIAL)

This study includes a screening step and a treatment step. The purpose of the screening step is to allow researchers to learn if a certain blood and bone marrow test (called a biomarker) can help predict how a person’s AML/MDS will respond to study drugs. The purpose of the treatment step of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of using different new treatment options to one of the current standard treatment options. The investigators will keep testing new treatments to see if they have any different effects on patients and their cancer when compared to the standard.
You may be able to take part in this study if you have acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and you and/or your doctor did not think you should get intensive chemotherapy.

The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good or bad, atezolizumab alone or atezolizumab combined with other agent(s) have on you and your cancer and to provide continued access to atezolizumab-based therapy and/or comparator agent(s) for eligible patients who were previously enrolled and treated in a parent study.

For patients who continue treatment in the extension study:

-Eligible for continuing or crossing over to atezolizumab-based therapy at the time of the parent-study closure as per the parent study

or

- Eligible for continuing the comparator agent(s) in a Genentech- or Roche-sponsored study at the time of the parent-study closure as per the parent study

- First dose of study treatment in the extension study will be received within the treatment interruption period allowed by the parent study

For patients who do not continue treatment in the extension study and/or receive commercially available atezolizumab outside the extension study and continue safety and survival follow-up only

- Discontinuation of atezolizumab-based therapy in parent study and in survival follow-up at the time of parent study closure

or

- Eligible for continuing or crossing over to atezolizumab-based therapy as per the parent protocol and have access to commercially available atezolizumab outside this extension study at the time of the parent-study closure.

The first purpose of this study is to test the safety of adding a new drug called inotuzumab to the usual chemotherapy drugs. The second purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of using inotuzumab along with the usual chemotherapy treatment to using the usual treatment alone. This study will allow the researchers to know whether this different approach is better, the same, or worse than the usual approach. Inotuzumab is investigational and is not FDA-approved.
You may be able to take part in this study if you have acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and are 18 to 39 years old.
