Randomized Phase III Trial of MEDI4736 (durvalumab) asConcurrent and Consolidative Therapy or ConsolidativeTherapy Alone for Unresectable Stage 3 NSCLC (EA5181) (PSCI# 21-041).

The purpose of this study is to compare the usual approach of chemo/radiation followed by one year of MEDI4736 (durvalumab) to chemo/radiation with MEDI4736 (durvalumab) followed by one year of MEDI4736 (durvalumab). The addition of MEDI4736 (durvalumab) during chemo/radiation could prevent your cancer from returning and extend your life. But, it could also cause side effects.This study will help the study doctors find out if this different approach is better, the same, or worse than the usual approach. To decide if it is better, the study doctors will be looking to see if the study drug extends the life of patients and/or prevents the tumor from coming back as compared to the usual approach.This drug, MEDI4736 (durvalumab), is already approved by the FDA for use in other cancers, and for use in your type of cancer after the completion of chemotherapy and radiation. At this time MEDI4736 (durvalumab) is not yet approved (experimental) when given with chemotherapy and radiation. There will be about 660 people taking part in this study.

A Phase II/III Study of Maintenance Nivolumab versus Observation in HPV Positive OPCA (PSCI# 20-016) (EA3161)

The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment alone (radiation and chemotherapy) to adding maintenance nivolumab to the usual treatment. The addition of nivolumab to the usual treatment could shrink your cancer or prevent it from returning. But, it could also cause side effects, which are described in the risks section below.This study will help the study doctors find out if this different approach is better than the usual approach. To decide if it is better, the study doctors will be looking to see if the nivolumab increases the lifetime of the patient without progression for 10 years.This immunotherapy drug, nivolumab, is already approved by the FDA for use in advanced and incurable head and neck cancer. But, most of the time it is not used until the cancer is very advanced and chemotherapy stops working. In this study we believe the use of nivolumab has a chance of preventing the cancer from coming back for patients with your type of cancer. There will be about 286 people taking part in the first part (phase II) of the study and 458 more people taking part in second part (phase III), if the results of the phase II portion are promising and if there is evidence that nivolumab may prolong your life.

The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment alone (radiation and chemotherapy) to adding maintenance nivolumab to the usual treatment.

Phase III IGRT and SBRT VS IGRT and Hypofractionated IMRT for Localized Intermediate Risk Prostate Cancer (NRG-GU005) (PSCI# 19-073)

The purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of using stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), a technique that gives treatment in a shorter amount of time compared to the usual radiation therapy. SBRT is experimental for treating this type of cancer. SBRT uses special equipment to position a participant and precisely deliver radiation to tumors in the body. Both the study and the usual radiation treatments use daily images to guide the radiation treatment to protect normal tissue. The study treatment, treatment over a shorter amount of time, may prevent the tumor from returning but it could also cause side effects. This study will allow the researchers to know whether this different approach using SBRT is better, the same, or worse than the usual approach. To be better, the study treatment should increase the time without the cancer coming back by six months or more compared to the usual approach, and show improvements in side effects to the bladder or rectum.

A Phase II/III Trial of De-intensified Radiation Therapy for Patients with Early-Stage, P16 Positive Oropharyngeal Cancer (NRG-HN005) (PSCI# 20-011)

The purpose of the first part of this study is to compare the usual treatment of a standard-dose radiation given over 6 weeks with cisplatin chemotherapy to a reduced-dose radiation given over either 6 weeks with cisplatin or 5 weeks with the immunotherapy drug, nivolumab. A lower dose of radiation as compared to the usual radiation treatment dose could be as effective in lengthening the time without your cancer getting worse. Nivolumab with reduced-dose radiation may or may not be as effective in lengthening the time without your cancer getting worse. This study will help the study doctors find out if this different approach is the same or worse than the usual approach.

Phase 1/2 Multicenter Study of the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Preliminary Efficacy of APL-101 in Subjects with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with c-Met EXON 14 Skip Mutations and c-Met Dysregulation Advanced Solid Tumors

This Phase 1 and 2 study is to determine the safety of APL-101 in subjects with NSCLC with specific mutations. It is also to determine the dose that is tolerable for oral administration of APL-101. And to see if there is a clinical benefit to subjects for the amount of time to progression, or progression free survival and overall survival.

We are asking you to give permission for your doctor to send your stored tumor tissue sample for cancer genetic analysis. As part of your cancer care, your doctor may have already collected a tumor tissue biopsy sample (of your cancer tissue) in the past, recently, or being planned as part of standard medical care. Your doctor will ask for any of your stored or available tumor tissue sample collected elsewhere from previous doctors you may have seen in the past. We will not ask you to undergo a new tissue biopsy procedure for this testing however your treating physician may decide to do so as part of your standard of care.There is no required visit for this testing. Once you have signed this consent, your available tumor tissue sample from a prior biopsy or surgery along with the pathology report will be sent to an accredited and certified external genetic laboratory (such as Caris Life Sciences or Interpace Pharma Solutions) to test and understand your cancer’s genetic make-up. The use of your tumor tissue samples as described in this form is necessary for the genetic testing. Without your consent to test your samples, the genetic testing cannot be performed. Once you agree to provide your samples, they cannot be returned to your doctor’s clinic. If the genetic testing of your samples show you have c-MET genetic dysregulations in your cancer, your doctor will discuss your treatment options including clinical trials, such as the APL-101-01 SPARTA trial, with you. If you are interested in participating, you will be asked to review and sign another participant information and informed consent form for the clinical trial before undergoing further screening tests to confirm if you are eligible to participate. The genetic results could also be used to help your clinic doctor decide on an approved therapy, or other investigational therapies that may be right for your specific cancer genetic alterations.

NRG-GI008 Colon Adjuvant Chemotherapy based on Evaluation of Residual Disease (CIRCULATE-US) (22-070)

To compare time to ctDNA (+ve) status in ctDNA (-ve) cohort following resection of stage III colon cancer treated with immediate vs delayed (based on serial ctDNA surveillance) chemotherapy. Time to positive event is defined as time from randomization to the first ctDNA positive result for the immediate arm (Arm 1) and to the 2nd ctDNA positive result for the delayed arm (Arm 2) to allow for the potential effect of delayed adjuvant chemotherapy. Patients recurred without a positive ctDNA result will be considered to have ctDNA positive status at the time of recurrence for both study arms.

We are asking you to take part in this research study because you have colon cancer that has been treated with surgery but has spread to some of your lymph nodes and is known as stage III colon cancer. Or, you have stage II or stage III colon cancer with a higher risk of cancer returning, your colon cancer has been treated with surgery, and you had ctDNA testing done and are ctDNA positive. Stage II colon cancer is an early stage colon cancer that has been treated with surgery but has not spread to your lymph nodes. ctDNA, or circulating tumor DNA, is DNA that has been released from tumor cells into your bloodstream. This DNA can be measured using a blood test.

A Randomized Phase II Trial of Adjuvant Pembrolizumab versus Observation Following Curative Resectionfor Stage I Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) with Primary Tumors Between 1-4 cm:Big Ten Cancer Research Consortium BTCRC-LUN18-153 (PSCI# 20-043)

This is a research study to find out if giving a drug called pembrolizumab after lung cancer surgery does a better job at keeping the cancer from coming back than surgery alone. The usual approach for patients who are not in a study is to be followed closely by their doctor to watch in case the cancer returns. Participants in this study will be assigned by chance (flip of a coin) to be watched closely by their doctor or to receive a drug called pembrolizumab. Pembrolizumab is given as an infusion inthe clinic once every six weeks. . You will have tests, exams and procedures that are part of your regular care and for study purposes. You will have scans every 12 weeks to make sure the cancer hasn’t come back. If you are assigned to receive pembrolizumab, you can continue to receive it for up to 1 year.

If you decide to take part in this study, you will be assigned to one of two groups. This is called randomization. A computer will assign you to a group in the study by chance. This is done by chance because no one knows if one study group is better or worse than the other. You will have an equal chance (50/50) of being assigned to either group.

Phase II Trial of Eflornithine (DFMO) and Etoposide for Relapsed/Refractory Neuroblastoma

This is a study of the drug DFMO (difluoromethylornithine) for neuroblastoma that has returned or not responded to treatment. DFMO is an oral drug that inhibits a certain enzyme (protein) in blood which is associated with a bad outcome in neuroblastoma cases. Cancer cells have pathways that drive the cancer to grow and DFMO targets the specific pathway of this enzyme to turn these cells off.

You will have exams, tests, and procedures while on the study to evaluate whether you can participate in the study and how you are doing while on the study. These include physical exams, blood tests, urine tests, bone marrow aspirate and biopsies, heart tests, hearing tests, and imaging evaluations such as CT scans and MIBG or PET scans. You will receive treatment on this study for a total of about 2 years. After treatment, you will have follow-up examinations and medical tests. We would like to continue to find out about your health for about 5 years after you complete the study.

A Phase III De-escalation of Breast Radiation for Stage I, Hormone Sensitive, HER2 Negative Breast Cancer (PSCI# 21-098) (NRG-BR007)

This study is being done to answer the following question:Is treatment with hormonal therapy as good as the usual treatment of radiation and hormonal therapy in women with low-risk breast cancer who have had lumpectomy? We are doing this study because we want to find out if this approach is better or worse than the usual approach for your breast cancer. The usual approach is defined as care most people get for low-risk, early stage breast cancer that is sensitive to hormones.

Pt will either have radiation therapy to the breast and take a hormonal drug for at least five years or you will only take a hormonal drug for at least five years.
