M7824 Related Adverse Effects in Adults With Cancer

2020-02-17 18:20:54 | BioPortfolio



Immunotherapy drugs use a person s own immune system to help fight cancer. These drugs work better for some people than others. The drug M7824 has helped some people with cancer. But it can cause side effects. Researchers want to learn all the side effects that M7824 can cause. Once they do, they can prevent or reduce these side effects in future cancer treatments. This will lead to better overall outcomes for people with cancer.


To make a thorough list of adverse events in people with cancer being treated with systemic therapies including M7824 at the National Cancer Institute (NCI).


Participants previously enrolled in NCI protocols #15-C-0179 and #18-C-0056


All needed data have already been collected. These data are stored in existing records and databases.

Researchers will review the medical records of adults with cancer who were enrolled in the above protocols. The data collected will be relevant to the specific objectives being addressed.

Data will be collected only if 2 conditions are met. One, the principal investigator gave permission for use of the data gathered in the trial. Two, the participants of the trial did not opt out of future use of the data.

Other protocols may be added. This will be done with an amendment.



Immunotherapy agents utilize the immune system to help fight cancer. A number of immunotherapy drugs have been approved for use in certain cancers. Despite being effective in some patients, many of these promising drugs do not demonstrate efficacy in other patients. M7824 (MSB0011359C), a bifunctional fusion protein that blocks both PD-L1 and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) signaling, is a promising novel drug that has proven efficacious in a subset of cancer patients. However, we have observed side effects in patients receiving M7824 that include both immune related adverse events and skin neoplasms. It is imperative that these M7824 side effects be identified and characterized so that they can be prevented or diminished during future cancer treatments. By thoroughly analyzing the side effect profile of this drug, management of adverse effects and overall patient outcomes can be better understood and optimized.

The primary goal of this protocol is to perform a retrospective chart review for the investigation of the adverse events arising in cancer patients being treated with systemic therapies including M7824 at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). This study will not involve the use of specimens or participant contact. All data that are needed have already been collected on the individual treatment protocols and are available in CRIS records or protocol specific databases. Data will only be collected from treatment protocols where the PI has given permission for use of the data on the trial the subjects were enrolled on and the subjects did not opt out of future use of data. This protocol will be amended to incorporate new research objectives and new protocols as necessary.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.

Cancers or tumors of the MAXILLA or MANDIBLE unspecified. For neoplasms of the maxilla, MAXILLARY NEOPLASMS is available and of the mandible, MANDIBULAR NEOPLASMS is available.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.

Neoplasms located in the vasculature system, such as ARTERIES and VEINS. They are differentiated from neoplasms of vascular tissue (NEOPLASMS, VASCULAR TISSUE), such as ANGIOFIBROMA or HEMANGIOMA.

Neoplasms composed of cells from the deepest layer of the epidermis. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in the stratum basale.
