This study will test the effectiveness & safety of zanidatamab (ZW25) as a treatment for biliary tract cancers (cholangiocarcinoma or gall bladder cancer) that contain extra copies of a gene called HER2. Patients must have HER2, advanced (unresectable) or metastatic biliary tract cancer which has progressed following standard of care therapy.Read More
NUC-1031, a new type of chemotherapy drug (called a ProTide) kills cancer cells by preventing DNA replication, similar to gemcitabine. There are several cancer resistance mechanisms known to limit the effectiveness of gemcitabine. NUC-1031 has been specifically designed to overcome these.
Patients will be randomised into NUC-1031 arm or SOC arm
This clinical study will test how safe and effective zanidatamab is for patients with advanced (unresectable) and/or metastatic cancers, including cholangiocarcinoma & gallbladder, that express high levels of the HER2 protein. To be eligible for the study patients must have progressive cancer after treatment with all known standard therapies.Read More
Early phase 1 study evaluating the safety of autologous dendritic cells (immune cells generated from patients’ own white blood cells, grown in a special lab, and trained to stimulate the immune system against the tumor) and a vaccine (Prevnar) in treating patients with liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery after undergoing radiotherapy.Read More
This clinical trial is for patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma that is not able to be removed by surgery. This study utilizes the combination of HAI pump therapy and intravenous chemotherapy. The purpose of this study is to test chemotherapy treatment combined with HAI pump therapy to find out how effective it is for patients.Read More
FGFR2(fibroblast growth factor receptor 2) gene rearrangements, have been
identified as an early driver of oncogenic events in approximately 15% of CCA patients. Futibatinib (TAS-120),an oral, highly selective, irreversible tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) that inhibits FGFR1-4 isoforms, and have shown evidence of efficacy on CCA.
Eligible patients with signed informed consent receive Telotristat Ethyl 250 mg (1 tab) 3 times daily for the 1st 7 days and then 500 mg (2 tabs) 3 times a day thereafter. Patients will also receive chemotherapy (Gemcitabine & Cisplatin) intravenously on Day 1 and Day 8 of each 21-day cycle, until end of study, progression, or consent withdrawalRead More
Patients with advanced biliary cancer (gallbladder or cholangiocarcinoma) previously untreated with systemic chemotherapy will receive gemcitabine + cisplatin + CPI-613 (targets enzymes that are involved in cancer cell energy metabolism).Read More
Study aims to assess an investigational drug compared with a matching placebo, when given with combination chemotherapy of gemcitabine plus cisplatin. This study will assess the intervention as a potential first-option treatment, looking primarily at safety (side effects), tolerability (how well the drug is tolerated), and efficacy (response).Read More
A combination of PARP inhibitor (daily pill) + immunotherapy (30 min infusion every 2 weeks) in patients with advanced biliary cancer who have not progressed after 4-6 months of first-line chemotherapy (platinum-based).Read More
