To investigate the efficacy and safety of zanidatamab in combination with standard first line chemotherapy regimens in gastrointestinal cancers, including biliary tract cancer (BTC) such as intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, and gallbladder cancer.Read More
This phase II trial studies how well the drug pevonedistat—when given alone or in combination with chemotherapy (paclitaxel and carboplatin)—works in treating patients with bile duct cancer of the liver. Pevonedistat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.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
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
This study contains 2 potential treatment arms and all participants will receive what is considered standard of care for your disease; up to 8 cycles of gemcitabine and cisplatin. Half of the participants will receive in addition the experimental treatment (including the drug Amphinex).Read More
This is a study of pembrolizumab plus gemcitabine/cisplatin vs. placebo plus gemcitabine/cisplatin as first-line therapy in people with advanced and/or unresectable BTC.Read More
A Phase 2 Study of Pembrolizumab, a Monoclonal Antibody Against PD-1, in Combination With Capecitabine and Oxaliplatin (CAPOX) in Subjects With Advanced Biliary Tract Carcinoma (BTC)Read More
This is a Phase III Study of Durvalumab (Immunotherapy) in Combination With Gemcitabine Plus Cisplatin Versus Placebo in Combination With Gemcitabine Plus Cisplatin for Patients With First-Line Advanced Biliary Tract Cancers. Chemotherapy (Gemcitabine plus Cisplatin) is the standard of care for advanced biliary tract cancer.Read More
All patients on this study receive the chemotherapy combination of 5-FU, leucovorin and nanoliposomal irinotecan which has shown efficacy in pancreatic cancer (and is FDA approved). In addition, this trial adds immunotherapy (nivolumab) to this chemotherapy regimen to leverage the synergism of chemo-immunotherapy.Read More
The study drug, varlitinib, is an investigational anti-tumor product, delivered in the form of tablets. The study drug has been administered as a single and combination treatment to patients with metastatic gastric cancer, gastro-esophageal tumors, breast cancer, and biliary tract cancer (BTC). Laboratory studies and animal research suggest that the study drug stops cancer cells from growing by affecting different kinds of proteins in cancer cells. In particular, laboratory studies suggest that the study drug may be effective in targeting and inhibiting (preventing) the pathways of certain proteins in cells called “HER” (human epidermal growth factor receptor). The “HER” protein is important in types of cancer such as cholangiocarcinoma (BTC), gastric cancer, breast cancer, and others. Varlitinib has shown activity in BTC. In this study, patients will receive study drug plus capecitabine, or placebo plus capecitabine. Inclusion allows all forms of BTC and there is no biomarker-based patient selection.Read More
