  • Phase 2 Study of Docetaxel +/- OGX-427 in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Metastatic Bladder Cancer
  • This is a randomized, open-label Phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate whether suppression of Hsp27 (Heat shock protein 27) production using OGX-427, a second-generation antisense oligonucleotide (ASO), in combination with docetaxel can prolong survival time compared to docetaxel alone in participants with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (UC) that are relapsed or refractory after receiving a platinum-containing regimen.

  • A Phase II Study of Cyberknife Radiosurgery for Renal Cell Carcinoma
  • CyberKnife Based Radiosurgery is a way to deliver large doses of radiation very accurately to a tumor. The ability of this technology to minimize radiation dose to organs adjacent to the target tumor allows a high dose to be delivered to the tumor, thus potentially increasing the efficacy of radiation treatment. Currently, radiosurgery is commonly used for brain metastases, Stage I lung cancer, spine tumors, and localized prostate cancer. The purpose of this protocol is to evaluate the role of Radiosurgery for the treatment of clinically localized primary renal cell carcinoma.

  • Study of Mocetinostat in Patients With Urothelial Carcinoma Having Inactivating Alterations of Specific Genes
  • Mocetinostat is an orally administered histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor. This study is a Phase 2 trial evaluating the efficacy of mocetinostat in patients that have advanced urothelial carcinoma that has specific changes in tumor genes. Patients must have previously received treatment with chemotherapy that included a "platinum-containing agent" such as cisplatin. The study will enroll in stages, with 15 patients in the first stage. More patients will be added to the study if enough patients having beneficial responses are observed. Mocetinostat will be administered using oral capsules three times each week (eg, Monday, Wednesday and Friday). The study is designed to evaluate whether the number of patients responding to treatment is substantially higher than would be expected with other available treatments.

  • A Study of MPDL3280A in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Bladder Cancer
  • This phase II, single-arm study was designed to evaluate the effect of MPDL3280A treatment in patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial bladder ca ncer. Patients will be enrolled into 1 of 2 cohorts. Cohort 1 will consist of pa tients who are treatment-naïve and ineligible for platinum-containing therapy. C ohort 2 will contain patients who have progressed during or following a prior pl atinum-based chemotherapy regimen. Patients in both cohorts will be given a 1200 mg intravenous (IV) dose of MPDL3280A on Day 1 of 21-day cycles. Treatment may continue for up to 16 cycles or 12 months, whichever is first, in the absence of toxicity or disease progression. Patients will be followed for up for 2 years. Patients who complete the initial treatment stage of up to 16 cycles may be eli gible for MPDL3280A re-treatment upon subsequent disease progression during the follow-up period and without intervening systemic anti-cancer therapy.
