FFNP-PET/MR Imaging of Progesterone Receptor Expression in Invasive Breast Cancer

The goal of this research is to test the accuracy of PET/MRI imaging with 18F-fluorofuranylnorprogesterone (FFNP) for measuring progesterone receptor (PR) expression in patients with invasive breast cancer. The hypothesis is that FFNP SUVmax from PET/MRI will correlate well against the semi-quantitative PR immunohistochemistry score.

FES Imaging to Optimize Tamoxifen for Metastatic Breast Cancer

Despite broad advancements in endocrine therapy for ERα+ breast cancer, resistance ultimately develops. A common driver of resistance are known ESR1 mutations that lead to constitutively active receptor signaling and transcriptional regulation that is always "turned on" despite the absence of estrogen. Patients with ESR1 mutations are expected to have decreased binding affinity for tamoxifen and thus may be underdosed on standard therapy. [18F]-fluoroestradiol Positron Emission Tomography/Computed tomography (FES-PET/CT) imaging is a novel functional imaging technique that can non-invasively measure ERα expression and inhibition in metastatic ERα+ breast cancer. The proposed a pilot study uses FES-PET/CT imaging to measure ERα blockade to determine the optimal dose of tamoxifen in patients with ESR1 mutations.

OAR-Based, Dose Escalated SBRT With Real Time Adaptive MRI Guidance for Liver Metastases

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) is a noninvasive local therapy with proven efficacy in a number of solid tumor types. However, colorectal cancer (CRC) liver metastases have been shown to be particularly resistant to SBRT, and often are found to have significantly worse rates of control compared with other histologies. Higher SBRT dose was recently shown to improve local control in CRC pulmonary metastases, however, increasing dose delivery with SBRT has been limited based on the risk of toxicity to adjacent structures, and the ability to visualize them during treatment. This is particularly relevant in treating liver tumors, as tumor and small bowel movement can often make tumor targeting and organs-at-risk (OAR) avoidance especially difficult. MRI-guided SBRT for liver tumors is both safe and feasible and offers an as yet unprecedented opportunity to achieve the highest possible safe dose to liver tumors. The purpose of this trial is to identify a safe maximum tolerated dose level for MRI-guided SBRT treatment of bowel and liver metastases, respectively. Eligible participants will be on study for up to 12 months.

Hypofractionated Radiotherapy for Soft Tissue Sarcomas

One of the main challenges in treating sarcomas with radiation is the toxicity to normal structures around the sarcoma. Early reports suggest Hypofractionated Radiotherapy will be safe and effective for treatment of soft tissue sarcomas. However, given the rarity of this disease, the diversity of histological sub-types, and the variety of locations where these can occur (anywhere in the body), more data is needed to provide understanding of the safety and efficacy of hypofractionated radiotherapy for treatment of this disease. The hypothesis is that by using hypofractionated radiotherapy, highly conformal high dose radiation can be delivered to soft tissue sarcomas, while respecting established normal tissue constraints and that local control rates will be greater than historical rates reported with conventional fractionation. Eligible participants with biopsy proven soft tissue sarcoma will be on study for up to 60 months.

CLR 131 Combined With Radiation for Head and Neck Cancer

This is a Phase 1 study of the use of an investigational drug that selectively delivers radiation to malignant tumor cells, CLR 131, in combination with external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) in subjects with locoregionally recurrent head and neck cancer. The trial will enroll up to 24 participants who are amenable to retreatment with radiation therapy. Participants who also have distant metastatic disease may be enrolled on this clinical trial, but they must have evaluable disease that will be clinically treated with radiation therapy, as per standard of care. All participants will receive a dosimetry test dose of CLR 131 to establish drug uptake by the tumor and enable Monte Carlo dose estimation based on CLR 131 SPECT/CT imaging evaluation. Participants showing uptake will receive a cumulative tumor dose of 60-70 Gy using personalized dose calculation (via Monte Carlo methods) of CLR 131 combined with external beam radiation.

IT-hu14.18-IL2 With Radiation, Nivolumab and Ipilimumab for Melanoma

This phase I/II trial is designed to determine the maximum tolerated dose or the maximum administered dose of intratumoral administration of hu14.18-IL2 and to evaluate side effects of intratumoral hu14.18-IL2 when given alone, after radiation therapy, after radiation therapy and in combination with nivolumab, and after radiation therapy and in combination with nivolumab and ipilimumab in patients with melanoma that is advanced (stage IV) or with melanoma that cannot be removed by surgery and is considered surgically incurable. Hu14.18-IL2 is a molecule called a fusion protein that can bind to some tumor cells and cause immune cells to become activated to kill tumor cells. Radiation therapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses beams of high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Immunotherapy with immune checkpoint inhibitors, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, can help the body's immune system attack cancer by releasing the "brakes" on the immune system to allow cancer fighting immune cells to remain activated. This study will evaluate whether giving intratumoral hu14.18-IL2 with radiation therapy, nivolumab and ipilimumab has antitumor activity for participants with advanced melanoma. After completion of study treatment, participants are followed up at 30 days, every 12 weeks for up to 2 years, and then every 6 months thereafter.

Real-Time MRI-Guided 3-Fraction Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation in Early Breast Cancer (MAPBI)

This trial will investigate a novel 3-fraction radiation regimen for participants undergoing breast-conserving therapy (BCT) for early breast cancer that will: 1) significantly reduce the duration of treatment and can be completed in one-week (5 working days) and 2) MRI-guided radiotherapy (MRIdian) would limit the volume of normal tissue radiated and therefore resultant toxicity. The hypothesis is that 3-fraction radiation therapy can be delivered safely without compromising the therapeutic ratio. Participants can expect to be on study for follow up up to 5 years.

Treatment of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Infections With Viral-Specific T Cells

The present trial will consist of the treatment of 20 pediatric and adult Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) recipients or immunocompromised participants diagnosed with opportunistic Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections with virus-specific, antigen-selected T-cells. CMV-specific T-cells will be isolated from donor leukapheresis products using the CliniMACS® Prodigy. Prior studies on transfer of CMV specific T-cells have been shown to be safe and efficacious in the treatment of CMV infections. The main trial objective is to evaluate the feasibility and safety of CMV-specific T-cell transfer in adult and pediatric participants suffering from CMV infections or reactivation following HSCT or due to other immunocompromised states (e.g.; primary immunodeficiency, cytotoxic therapy). Participants will be followed for one year.

Cetuximab in Head and Neck Cancer Patients

This clinical trial is for participants with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma who are scheduled to have their tumor surgically removed. The study involves obtaining baseline tissue from a clinical biopsy or research biopsy and measurement of circulating tumor cells before surgery to determine whether AXL protein expression pre-treatment correlates to clinical outcomes (change in tumor size) after two doses of cetuximab. The importance of this study is to describe if AXL expression can be used as a biomarker to predict clinical response to cetuximab (CTX) treatment.

Pilot Study of Biomarkers of Response to Immune Checkpoint Blockade in Metastatic Melanoma

This study uses molecular imaging and novel immune monitoring to identify a biomarker of response for melanoma patients receiving immunotherapy with anti-PD-1 immunotherapy. Prior to treatment, FDG and FLT PET/CT will be obtained, together with blood and tumor biopsies from each patient. A follow-up FDG and FLT PET/CT will be obtained, together with blood and tumor biopsies, 10-12 weeks after starting treatment with anti-PD-1 antibody. Additional tumor biopsies and blood samples for immune monitoring will be obtained 4-6 weeks after starting treatment with anti-PD-1 antibody as well as 16-18 weeks after starting anti-PD-1 treatment for patients still receiving anti-PD-1 antibody at that time.

Neoadjuvant Weekly Paclitaxel and Biomarkers of Therapy Response

The hypothesis of this study is that paclitaxel levels increase chromosomal instability (CIN) in tumors and this is lethal to tumors that have pre-existing CIN. Treatment will be administered on an outpatient basis. Paclitaxel will be initiated as standard infusions on days 1, 8, and 15 of a 21-day cycle. Participants will continue with paclitaxel for cycles 2-4 prior to surgery.

Inclusion Criteria:

• Women with pathologically demonstrated breast cancer
• Patients must be candidates for neoadjuvant paclitaxel chemotherapy by their treating oncologist. No other investigational or commercial therapeutic agents may be given concurrently with the paclitaxel.
• Patients must not have metastatic disease on staging work-up with CBC and liver function studies.
• A formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tumor block (preferred) or unstained slides must be available from a prior biopsy of the primary tumor or lymph node. A minimum of 8 slides must be available.
• The primary tumor or lymph node must be readily biopsied by surgery or radiology teams.
• The primary tumor must be measurable by an imaging modality prior to treatment. This imaging modality is to be repeated after completion of 4 cycles of paclitaxel and prior to surgery. Such imaging modalities may include ultrasound, CT, mammography, or MRI. MRI will be the preferred imaging modality if available because it has the highest accuracy and positive predictive value for predicting pathologic complete response.All imaging will be performed per standard of care at the discretion of the treating physicians.
• Subjects may not have had prior systemic chemotherapy regimens administered for treatment of their current breast cancer. However, studies (window studies, for example) that are deemed non-therapeutic, including those that utilize agents that are not FDA approved for the treatment of the patient's current breast cancer, are permitted.
• Patients must have adequate organ and marrow function as determined by the treating oncologist.
• Patient must be willing to undergo additional biopsy of breast tumor or lymph node.
• Patient must have the ability and willingness to sign a written informed consent document.
• Women of childbearing potential (per UWCCC policy definition) must agree to use effective contraception as discussed with treating oncologist for the duration of the study.
Exclusion Criteria:

• History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to paclitaxel including to other drugs formulated in Cremophor(R) EL (polyoxyethylated castor oil).
• Patients with known HIV due to concern that chemotherapy may cause further immunosuppression and potential infectious complications.
• Patients on non-aspirin anti-coagulation (Coumadin, heparins, or clopidogrel) or with documented bleeding disorders will be excluded due to risk of bleeding with biopsy.
• Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active severe infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, other malignancies requiring therapy or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.
• Pregnant women are excluded from this study because paclitaxel is a pregnancy category D drug and may cause deleterious effects to the fetus. Because there is an unknown but potential risk for adverse events in nursing infants secondary to treatment of the mother with paclitaxel, breastfeeding should be discontinued if the mother is enrolled in the trial.

Epidural Anesthesia Within an Enhanced Recovery Pathway in Reducing Pain in Patients Undergoing Gynecologic Surgery

This randomized clinical trial studies epidural anesthesia within an enhanced recovery pathway (ERP) in reducing pain in patients undergoing gynecologic surgery. An epidural analgesia (pain relief) is a small tube placed in the lower back that numbs the nerves and stops the feeling of pain. It stays in place for several days after surgery and may be helpful for pain control in patients with gynecologic cancer after surgery. ERP is a set of specific steps used before, during, and after surgery by health care providers to care for patients after surgery. ERPs include patient education, not using laxatives before surgery, increasing activity after surgery, and scheduled use of medications for pain and nausea. Giving epidural anesthesia as part of an ERP may improve pain control in patients undergoing gynecologic surgery.

pTVG-HP DNA Vaccine With or Without pTVG-AR DNA Vaccine and Pembrolizumab in Patients With Castration-Resistant, Metastatic Prostate Cancer

This trial will evaluate the use of one versus two DNA vaccines, delivered concurrently with PD-1 blockade using pembrolizumab followed by treatment with pembrolizumab alone, and delivered over a prolonged period of time (for a maximum of 2 years (32 cycles) or until radiographic progression) on the treatment of castrate-resistant, metastatic prostate cancer. The hypothesis to be tested is that delivering two vaccines with PD-1 blockade will elicit a greater frequency and magnitude of tumor-directed CD8+ T cells, and thereby increase the percentage of patients experiencing objective anti-tumor effect as measured by PSA declines and/or objective radiographic responses. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and can expect to be on treatment for 2 years (32 cycles) and on study for up to 4 years (including 2 years of follow up via phone).

Improving Pulmonary Function Following Radiation Therapy

The purpose of this study is to develop radiation plans that will help preserve lung function in healthy tissue surrounding the tumor. We believe that 4DCT scans can be useful in designing radiation treatment plans that help us avoid healthy normal functioning lung tissue close to lung tumors. Currently 4DCT scans are used to help us determine exactly where the tumor is and how it moves when you breathe. In this study we will also use the 4DCT scans to try to identify high functioning normal lung tissue.

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy With Boost Using Urethral-Sparing Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy Planning in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of stereotactic body radiation therapy while using intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) planning to help avoid radiation to normal tissue in patients with prostate cancer. Stereotactic body radiation therapy is a specialized radiation therapy that sends x-rays directly to the tumor using small, high doses of radiation over several days and may cause less damage to normal tissue. This treatment schedule allows for a higher dose of radiation to be administered over a shorter overall treatment period in comparison to standard radiation therapy.
