A Study of Chemo Only Versus Chemo Plus Nivo With or Without BMS-986205, Followed by Post- Surgery Therapy With Nivo or Nivo and BMS-986205 in Patients With MIBC
A study to evaluate nivolumab + chemotherapy or nivolumab / BMS-986205 + chemotherapy followed by continued Immuno-Oncology therapy after radical cystectomy (RC) compared with neoadjuvant standard of care (SOC) chemotherapy alone in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC)
Fluid Measurements and MRI in Determining Biomarkers of Lymphatic Dysfunction in Patients with Breast Cancer
This trial uses fluid measurements of the arm and MRI to determine biomarkers of lymphatic dysfunction in patients with breast cancer. Studying the lymphatic system (the part of your body that helps to process and clear waste products) in different ways will help doctors understand more about lymphedema (excess fluid after lymph nodes are removed) and help with prevention and management of lymphedema in patients with breast cancer.
Bevacizumab and Anetumab Ravtansine or Paclitaxel in Treating Patients with Refractory Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
This phase II trial studies the side effects of bevacizumab and anetumab ravtansine or paclitaxel in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that does not respond to treatment (refractory). Bevacizumab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Anetumab ravtansine is a drug that targets a protein in the body called mesothelin, which can be found in some ovarian, pancreatic and other tumors. Chemotherapy drugs, such as paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether giving bevacizumab and anetumab ravtansine or paclitaxel may work better in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
Animal-Assisted Interactions in Improving Quality of Life in Children with Advanced, Relapsed, or Refractory Cancer and Their Parents
This trial studies how well animal-assisted interactions work in improving quality of life in children with cancer that has spread extensively to other anatomic sites or is no longer responding to treatment, has come back, or does not respond to treatment, and their parents. Having animal-assisted therapy (AAT) visits on a routine basis with a trained animal-handler and his / her dog may help to make the cancer treatment process less stressful for children and their parents.

Imatinib Mesylate and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Philadelphia Chromosome Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Multiple Cancer Types
This randomized phase III trial studies how well imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Atezolizumab, Paclitaxel, Trastuzumab, and Pertuzumab in Treating Patients with HER2 Positive Breast Cancer That Is Locally Recurrent, Metastatic, or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
This phase IIa trial studies the side effects of atezolizumab when given together with paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab and to see how well it works in treating patients with HER2 positive breast cancer that has come back at or near the same place as the original (primary) tumor (locally recurrent), has spread to other places in the body (metastatic), or cannot be removed by surgery. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Trastuzumab is a form of targeted therapy because it works by attaching itself to specific molecules (receptors) on the surface of cancer cells, known as HER2 receptors. When trastuzumab attaches to HER2 receptors, the signals that tell the cells to grow are blocked and the cancer cell may be marked for destruction by the body's immune system. Pertuzumab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving atezolizumab, paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab may work better in treating patients with HER2 positive breast cancer.
Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of an Anti-PD-1 Monoclonal Antibody in Subjects With Advanced Malignancies
Multiple Cancer Types
The primary objective is to assess the safety and tolerability of Toripalimab in subjects with various advanced malignancies and to evaluate the recommended Phase 2 dose. The secondary objectives are to: 1) describe the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of Toripalimab, 2) evaluate antitumor activity of Toripalimab; 3) determine the immunogenicity of Toripalimab; 4) evaluate overall survival. The exploratory objectives are to: 1) evaluate biomarkers that may correlate with activity of Toripalimab, 2) evaluate pharmacodynamic effects of Toripalimab on its target receptor, programmed cell death 1 (PD-1), as well as effects on the immune system. 3) evaluate the utility of PD-L1 & additional exploratory markers as biomarkers that could aid in selection of appropriate subjects for TAB001 therapy, and 4) identification of additional biomarkers correlating with response to treatment with TAB001.
Miscellaneous, Phase I
Multiple Cancer Types
The study will evaluate the clinical activity of PD-(L)1 Checkpoint Inhibitor regimens in combination with the investigational agent sitravatinib in patients with advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma.
A Study to Compare the Administration of Pembrolizumab after Surgery Versus Administration both before and after Surgery for High-Risk Melanoma
This phase II trial studies how pembrolizumab works before and after surgery in treating patients with stage III-IV high-risk melanoma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.. Giving pembrolizumab before and after surgery may work better compared to after surgery alone in treating melanoma.
