A Phase II Multicenter, Single Arm Study of Oral BGJ398 in Adult Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Cholangiocarcinoma With FGFR2 Gene Fusions or Other FGFR Genetic Alterations Who Failed or Are Intolerant to Platinum-based Chemotherapy

This Phase II clinical trial will establish the effectiveness of BGJ398 in patients harboring the FGFR2 gene fusion/translocation, which are errors in the DNA. Adult patients with histologically or cytologically confirmed (tumor biopsy), advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma harboring the FGFR2 gene fusion/ translocation are eligible for enrollment. Phase II clinical trials give doctors more information about the safety of the drug and how well it works.

Approximately 55 adult patients over age 18, both male and female will be enrolled. All patients will receive oral BGJ398, once daily, on a three weeks on (21 days), one week off (7 days) schedule

ClarIDHy: A Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind of orally administered AG-120 for patients with advanced cholangiocarcinoma and an IDH1 gene mutation.

ClarIDHy is Phase 3, multicenter, randomized (people are allocated by chance to receive one of clinical interventions) double-blind (neither the participant nor the investigator know who is receiving AG-120 or the placebo) of orally administered AG-120 for patients with advanced cholangiocarcinoma and an IDH1 gene mutation.

Phase II study of copanlisib (BAY 80-6946) in combination with gemcitabine and cisplatin in advanced cholangiocarcinoma

This is a study for patients with advanced cholangiocarcinoma or gallbladder cancer. It includes chemotherapy (gemcitabine and cisplatin) with the addition of a PI3K inhibitor to try to improve outcome for this group of patients

STARTRK-2: An Open-Label, Multicenter, Global Phase 2 Basket Study of Entrectinib for the Treatment of Patients with Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors (including cholangiocarcinoma) that Harbor NTRK1/2/3, ROS1, or ALK Gene Rearrangements

This study will enroll patients with advanced cancers (including cholangiocarcinoma) that have an NTRK/ROS1/ALK gene rearrangement (also called gene fusions), which may be primary causes of cancer. This study will evaluate if an investigational drug, Entrectinib (also known as RXDX-101), can block the growth of cancer cells caused by NTRK/ROS1/ALK gene rearrangements.

Study of LOXO-101 in Subjects With NTRK Fusion Positive Solid Tumors Phase II, multi-center, open-label study of patients with advanced solid tumors harboring a fusion of NTRK1, NTRK2 or NTRK3

This phase 2 study will enroll patients of all tumor types including cholangiocarcinomas who have a specific abnormality in the tumor called a fusion of one of the cancer cell’s NTRK genes (NTRK -1, -2, or -3) which may cause the cholangiocarcinoma to grow. The study drug, LOXO-101, is a capsule and acts by blocking the effects of the NTRK fusions
