This is a Phase 2, single-arm study of nivolumab combined with ipilimumab in subjects with previously untreated, unresectable or metastatic uveal melanoma. Previous studies with immunotherapy have shown promising results and this synergistic combination was very effective in other tumors. This study will allow for further characterization of the safety and clinical activity of nivolumab combined with ipilimumab in subjects with uveal melanoma.
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, intermittent dosing of the drug Selumetinib will have on subjects with uveal melanoma. Selumetinib is a drug that blocks (or turns off) methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), a protein activated in some uveal melanoma cells. Selumetinib is a MEK inhibitor. Blocking MEK may stop the cancer from growing.
This is an investigator-initiated Phase I study of a single dose of an intravitreally-administered dexamethasone implant (Ozurdex™) in subjects with uveal melanomas (UM) and exudative retinal detachments (ERD: build-up of fluid under the retina that causes it to detach) being treated with proton beam radiation (PBI). Although PBI is an effective treatment for UM, ERDs may persist after radiation, leading to vision loss. Effective treatments for ERD are currently lacking. We a...
This research study is studying a targeted therapy called BVD-523 as a possible treatment for advanced uveal melanoma.
This is a Phase 2 study in which the efficacy of a non-myeloablative lymphodepleting preparative regimen followed by infusion of autologous TIL and high-dose aldesleukin in patients with metastatic uveal melanoma will be evaluated. Metastatic uveal melanoma (UM) carries a poor prognosis with estimated survival of 4-6 months. There are no known effective systemic therapies. Metastatic UM is classified as an "orphan" disease and there are currently few clinical trial options for...
This study will identify the genes responsible for uveal coloboma, an abnormal development of the eye caused by incomplete closure of a normally-occurring gap in the eye (the optic fissure) after the fifth week of life in a human embryo. There have been studies of families in which more than one person has been affected by this disorder. Coloboma occurs in about 1 of 10,000 live births and may cause significant vision loss. Researchers seek a better understanding of the genes r...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of Avastin introduced into the inside of the eyeball in causing shrinkage of the uveal melanoma (tumor of the eye). Avastin is an anti-cancer drug specially designed to shrink blood vessels within tumors.
This proof-of-concept study will evaluate the ability of vorinostat to induce the transformation of Class 2 uveal melanoma cells into a cell phenotype that resembles normal melanocytes.
This study is to characterize the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and preliminary anti-tumor activity of LXS196 as a single agent in patients with metastatic uveal melanoma.
Reports to date show limited efficacy of immunotherapy for uveal melanoma. Recent experimental and clinical evidence suggests synergy between radiation therapy and immunotherapy. We will explore this synergy with a feasibility study of 18 patients with uveal melanoma and hepatic metastases who will receive SirSpheres Yttrium-90 selective internal hepatic radiation followed by immunotherapy with the combination of ipilimumab and nivolumab.
Phase II clinical trial aimed to evaluate the efficacy of the combination of cediranib and durvalumab in patients with metastatic uveal melanoma (mUM) with biopsiable disease at first line of after failure to first line systemic or liver directed therapy.
This study is measuring the safety of the study drug, ADI-PEG 20, combined with immunotherapy drugs nivolumab and ipilimumab in treating patients with advanced uveal melanoma.
Plaque radiotherapy is a common treatment for uveal melanoma. However, local failure has been reported in up to 20% of patients. We use intraoperative ultrasonography at plaque insertion and removal to evaluate plaque movement as a potential factor in local failure.
This is an open-label Phase 1b clinical study of ipilimumab in combination with intravenous CVA21 in subjects who have uveal melanoma metastatic to liver.
Prospective, open labelled, monocentric trial to evaluation of the circulating tumor DNA rate in the blood, before and after curative resection of hepatic metastasis of uveal melanoma (HMUM) and during post-surgery follow-up
The objective of the study is to determine the efficacy and toxicity of sorafenib in metastatic uveal melanoma. The main objective is to determine the non-tumor progression rate 24 weeks after initiation of treatment with sorafenib at a dose of 800 mg / day
Background: Although some treatments for substance abuse are considered effective for some people who are drug dependent, many others do not benefit as much over time. Researchers are working to find out what characteristics predict treatment response. They also want to determine how to design treatments that are more effective for a greater number of substance abusers. This pilot study involves providing drug addicts with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a treatment ...
MyVHL is a multi-patient database which helps researchers identify patterns across VHL patients. MyVHL provides you -and researchers -with more complete information about VHL, like how your lifestyle, medications, and other factors impact the disease and quality of life. These insights help you better understand the condition and help researchers know where to focus their efforts. Due to its rarity, there is less understanding of VHL and the factors that may have an impa...
Uveal Melanoma is the most common primary intraocular malignancy in adulthood. Eye preserving treatments can deliver equivalent life prognosis in the management of small and medium sized uveal melanomas, as compared to enucleation. Plaque radiotherapy has emerged as the most common eye-preserving treatment in the current management of uveal melanoma, but is complicated by visual loss in approximately 70% of patients at 10 years follow-up. Strategies for the prevention and ear...
This phase II trial studies how well stereotactic body radiation therapy and aflibercept work in treating patients with uveal melanoma. Stereotactic body radiation therapy is a specialized radiation therapy that sends x-rays directly to the tumor using smaller doses over several days and may cause less damage to normal tissue. Aflibercept may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving stereotactic body radiation therapy followe...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as dacarbazine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Recombinant interferon alfa-2b may interfere with the growth of tumor cells. Giving interferon alfa-2b together with dacarbazine may be an effective treatment for primary uveal melanoma. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving dacarbazine together with recombinant interferon ...
Effectiveness of Early or Delayed Addition of Hydroxyurea to a Three-Drug Anti-HIV Drug Combination Including Didanosine, in Advanced HIV Patients Who Failed a First or Second Anti-HIV Triple-Drug Therapy
The purpose of this study is to find out whether or not the addition of hydroxyurea to didanosine (ddI) and other anti-HIV medications will result in better control of HIV infection. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved ddI for treating HIV infections. Hydroxyurea is approved for treating some cancers and blood disorders. It works against HIV-1 when combined with ddI. Researchers need to look at how well patients may respond to hydroxyurea in combination w...
Uveal Melanoma is a rare cancer with approximately 3,000 cases diagnosed in the US every year. Nearly half of these experience spread of their cancer outside the eye. The DecisionDx-UM gene expression test classifies an individual's tumor as low risk (class 1) or high risk (class 2) of spreading. This study is being done to collect information about how physicians are using the DecisionDx-UM results to design individual treatment plans. It will also track outcomes or the uv...
The study will compare gene expression differences between blistered and non-blistered skin from individuals with EBS, as well as normal skin from non-EBS subjects. State of the art computational analysis will be performed to help identify new drugs that might help EBS wound healing and reduce pain. Researchers will focus on drugs that have already been approved for treatment of other dermatologic or non-dermatologic diseases, and therefore be repurposed for treatment of EBS. D...
Patients with uveal melanoma metastatic to the liver will be treated with embolization of the hepatic artery every 4 weeks. GM-CSF (granulocyte-macrophage colony simulating factor) or normal saline will be injected into one of the liver arteries with an oily contrast dye, Ethiodol. This is followed by blockage of the artery with small pieces of gelatin sponge (embolization). It is hoped with this novel approach that: - tumor cells will die due to a loss of their blood suppl...
