2012.030.B - Advanced Colorectal Cancer and the Effects of Irinotecan Hydrochloride and Cetuximab With or Without Ramucirumab 

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as cetuximab and ramucirumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Cetuximab and ramucirumab may also stop the growth of colorectal cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet know whether giving cetuximab and irinotecan hydrochloride together is more effective with or without ramucirumab in treating colorectal cancer.

2013.207.C - Unresectable Bile Duct and Pancreatic Cancer and the Effects of EndoHPB 

Only a small proportion of patients with biliary obstruction caused by cholangiocarcinoma or pancreatic cancer are suitable for surgical resection. Therefore most patients with malignant biliary obstruction will need palliation of their jaundice to relieve the symptoms of pruritus, malabsorption, sepsis and to minimize potential hepatorenal complications. Restoring biliary flow with relief of jaundice is the primary goal in the palliation of obstructive biliary malignancy. Drainage at endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ECRP) is established as a safer approach than at percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC) because it has a lower risk of bile leak, infection and hemorrhage. ECRP is the first approach to relieve malignant biliary obstruction but sometimes it is not technically possible to stent the patient by this approach, then a PTC needs to be undertaken. Self expanding mesh metal stents (SEMS) were introduced back in the 1990s. Problems can still arise with the use of covered stents such as cholecystitis, pancreatitis or tumor overgrowth at the end of the stent, and not all studies have shown that covered stents actually reduce the problems of tumor ingrowth and consequent stent occlusion. EndoHPB can be deployed via an ERCP or PTC route. By using radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the tissue in the duct prior to insertion of the stent, the surrounding tissue becomes coagulated and this may may delay tumor growth and the time before the stent lumen becomes blocked. Thereby this allows increased periods between the need for intervention and further stent deployment. If EndoHPB use of luminal RF is demonstrated to be effective in luminal tumor ablation, it may have an additional role as a form of neoadjuvant therapy in cholangiocarcinoma and pancreatic cancer.

2014.101.C - Relapsed or Refractory Metastatic Colorectal Cancer and the Effects of Ruxolitinib or Placebo in Combination with Regorafinib 

The study consists of an open-label, Part 1 safety run-in (consisting of 1 to 3 cohorts of 9 subjects each), to confirm the safety of the regorafenib/ruxolitinib combination in subjects with relapsed or refractory metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). If determined to be tolerable, Part 2 will proceed as a randomized, double-blind study evaluating ruxolitinib or placebo in combination with regorafenib in subjects with relapsed or refractory metastatic CRC previously treated with fluoropyrimidine, oxaliplatin, and/or irinotecan based chemotherapy, an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy and if Kirsten rat sarcoma (KRAS) wild type an anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) therapy.

Subjects in the safety run-in will receive open-label ruxolitinib and regorafenib; for the randomized, double-blind portion of the study all subjects will receive regorafenib and either ruxolitinib or placebo in a 1:1 blinded manner. Treatment for all subjects will consist of repeating 28-day cycles. Regorafenib will be self-administered for the first 21 days of each cycle, and ruxolitinib/placebo will be self-administered during the entire 28-day cycle. Treatment cycles will continue as long as the regimen is tolerated, and the subject does not meet the discontinuation criteria. When subjects discontinue regorafenib, ruxolitinib or placebo they will remain in the study and be followed for subsequent treatment regimens which are initiated and survival.
