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.

SENTINEL LYMPH NODE BIOPSY VERSUS ELECTIVE NECK DISSECTION FOREARLY-STAGE ORAL CAVITY CANCER (NRG-HN006) (PSCI# 20-085)

The purpose of this study is to see if neck and shoulder function and pain are better after SLN biopsy surgery compared to the usual approach and to see if SLN biopsy surgery is as good as the usual approach in extending your time without cancer. SLN biopsy surgery is potentially less invasive compared to the usual approach, but it requires a radioactive imaging agent to see the lymph nodes and it could also cause side effects. These side effects are described in the risks section below. Your study doctor will choose the appropriate imaging agent, Lymphoseek or sulfur colloid, for use in your surgery.This study will help the study doctors find out if this different approach is better than the usual approach at improving neck and shoulder function. To decide if it is better, in the first part of the study, doctors will be looking to see if shoulder and neck function and quality of life are better after SLN biopsy surgery compared to the END surgery.

We are asking you to take part in a research study. This study has public funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States Department of Health and Human Services. We do research studies to try to answer questions about how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases like cancer. We are asking you to take part in this research study because you have early-stage oral cavity cancer and are having neck dissection surgery.

Phase 2 Study of Bladder-SparIng ChemoradiatioN with Durvalumab (PSCI# 19-072) (EA8185)

The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment of chemotherapy and radiation to adding MEDI4736 (durvalumab) immunotherapy to the usual treatment. The addition of MEDI4736 (durvalumab) immunotherapy to the usual treatment may help shrink your cancer better than the current standard of care or usual approach for bladder cancer. But, it could also cause side effects, which are described in the risks section.This study will help determine 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 study approach increases the life of patients by 6 months or more compared to the usual approach.

If you decide to take part in this study, you will either get chemotherapy and radiation for 6-8 weeks, or you will get durvalumab immunotherapy in addition to chemotherapy and radiation for 6.5-8 weeks. After you finish your study treatment, your doctor will continue to follow you for up to 3 years. The follow-up will consist of visits to his or her office and CT scans of the bladder.

Phase III Trial of MEDI4736 (durvalumab) as Concurrent and Consolidative Therapy or Consolidative Therapy 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.

PARPAML: A Phase 1 Protocol for Relapsed Pediatric AML to Determine the Safety and Efficacy of the PARP Inhibitor Talazoparib in Combination with Chemotherapy

The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, study treatment with talazoparib in combination with the chemotherapy drugs topotecan and gemcitabine has on pediatric patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) that has returned or has not responded to treatment. The study drug talazoparib has been chosen because there is evidence that is can reduce tumor activity in a more specific way than chemotherapy.

If you join the study, you will given a certain dose of the study drug talazoparib, and of the chemotherapy drugs topotecan and gemcitabine. You may be asked to provide biological samples (such as blood or bone marrow) and undergo procedures that might be different from a regular medical examination. This study will involve screening, treatment, and follow up period. During screening, the study doctor will determine whether you are eligible for the study. If you are eligible and are enrolled into the study, you will have 2-3 months of active participation, including collection of information from you, admission to the hospital for a minimum of 5-7 days, and at least weekly visits to the study center.

BCC015: 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.

Parallel Phase III Randomized Trials For High Risk Prostate Cancer Evaluating De-Intensification For Lower Genomic Risk and Intensification for Higher Genomic Risk with Radiation (NRG-GU009) (PSCI# 20-141)

This study is being done to answer the following questions: If you have high risk prostate cancer, a low gene risk score and plan to receive radiation therapy, is a shorter hormone therapy treatment as effective at controlling your cancer compared to the usual 24 month hormone therapy treatment? If you have high risk prostate cancer, a high gene risk score and plan to receive radiation therapy, does adding two new hormone therapy drugs to the usual treatment increase the length of time without your prostate cancer spreading as compared to the usual treatment?We are doing this study because we want to find out if these approaches are better, similar, or worse than the usual approach for your type of prostate cancer. The usual treatment is defined as the care most people get for prostate cancer.
