KaCrole Higgins was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020. “In May 2020, I found a lump in my breast. I cried. By June, it was diagnosed as breast cancer, triple positive, stage 1A. While getting this cancer diagnosis was devastating, it also became an opportunity. Suddenly, the cancer gave me clarity. It gave me clarity about what was important, what was good in my life, what was toxic in my life, and what I needed to do.” Click below to read more of KaCrole’s story
|If Landon Ryan had been diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma 10, 20 or 30 years ago, she might not be here today with nearly perfect vision.Thanks to recent improvements in the treatment for this rare form of cancer that almost exclusively affects children under the age of 5, the diagnosis had the power to change Landon’s life when she was 11 months old, but not to take it — or her eyesight.

Testing the Addition of an Anti-Cancer Drug, Irinotecan, to the Standard Chemotherapy Treatment (FOLFOX) after Long-Course Radiation Therapy for Advanced-Stage Rectal Cancers to Improve the Rate of Complete Response and Long-Term Rates of Organ Preservation
Testing the Use of Combination Therapy in Adult Patients with Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma, the EQUATE Trial
Chemotherapy for the Treatment of Patients with Newly Diagnosed Very Low-Risk and Low Risk Fusion Negative Rhabdomyosarcoma
Multiple Cancer Types
activation signals to specific receptors on cancer cells. The study will occur in two phases.
The first phase will be a dose escalation phase, enrolling patients with various types of
solid tumors that express human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). The second phase
will include a dose expansion using the best dose selected from the first phase of the study.
Multiple cohorts will be opened with eligible patients having either HER2 activated non-small
cell lung cancer, hormone receptor (HR) positive HER2 negative metastatic breast cancer, or
HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer. DF1001-001 will be administered as monotherapy or in
combination; combinations are DF1001 + nivolumab, DF1001 + Nab paclitaxel, and DF1001 +
Testing Atezolizumab Alone or Atezolizumab Plus Bevacizumab in People with Advanced Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma
Tiragolumab and Atezolizumab for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 Deficient Tumors
(Peak) A Phase 3 Randomized Trial of CGT9486+Sunitinib vs. Sunitinib in Subjects With Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors
with sunitinib. This is a multi-part study that will enroll approximately 426 patients. Part
1 consists of two evaluations: 1) confirming the dose of an updated formulation of CGT9486 to
be used in subsequent parts in approximately 20 patients who have received at least one prior
line of therapy for GIST and 2) evaluating for drug-drug interactions between CGT9486 and
sunitinib in approximately 18 patients who have received at least two prior tyrosine kinase
inhibitors (TKIs) for GISTs. The second part of the study will enroll approximately 388
patients who are intolerant to, or who failed prior treatment with imatinib only and will
compare the efficacy of CGT9486 plus sunitinib to sunitinib alone with patients being
randomized in a 1:1 manner.
HLA-Mismatched Unrelated Donor Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation With Post-Transplantation Cyclophosphamide
Multiple Cancer Types
(HCT) using human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-mismatched unrelated donors (MMUD) for peripheral
blood stem cell transplant in adults and bone marrow stem cell transplant in children.
Post-transplant cyclophosphamide (PTCy), tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) will be
used for for graft versus host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis. This trial will study how well
this treatment works in patients with hematologic malignancies.
