Clinical Trials

The GW Medical Faculty Associates is proud of its physician scientists and their commitment to medical research. These clinical studies are designed to add to the medical knowledge base and relate to the treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of diseases or conditions.

This is a randomized, parallel, open label Phase II single-arm window trial to assess the clinical and biological effects of neoadjuvant abemaciclib in patients with HPV-negative head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC).

This phase II trial tests whether broccoli seed and sprout extract works to break down cancer causing substances of tobacco in heavy smokers. Smokers are at increased risk for developing lung, head and neck, and other cancers. Broccoli seed and sprout extract may help break down and remove toxic…

This phase II trial studies the side effects of chemotherapy and intensity modulated radiation therapy in treating patients with low-risk HIV-associated anal cancer, and nivolumab after standard of care chemotherapy and radiation therapy in treating patients with high-risk HIV-associated anal…

Phase II Randomized Trial of Radiotherapy With or Without Cisplatin for Surgically Resected Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (SCCHN) With TP53 Sequencing (EA3132)

Primary Objective: to compare the non-inferiority of bilateral salpingectomy (BLS) with delayed oophorectomy to bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer among women with deleterious BRCA1 germline mutations.

Primary Outcome Measures: Rate of Progression to Prostate Cancer (PCa) [Time Frame: 24 months]
Number of participants with clinical progression defined as a composite outcome on repeat prostate biopsy >33% of biopsy cores positive for cancer or >50% of any biopsy tissue core positive…

CASPAR - A Phase III Trial of Enzalutamide and Rucaparib as a Novel Therapy in First-line Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

Randomized Phase II/III Trial of Radiation With High-Dose Cisplatin (100 mg/m2) Every Three Weeks Versus Radiation With Low-Dose Weekly Cisplatin (40 mg/m2) for Patients With Locoregionally Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (SCCHN)

Randomized Phase II/III Trial of Adjuvant Radiation Therapy With Cisplatin, Docetaxel-Cetuximab, or Cisplatin-Atezolizumab in Pathologic High-Risk Squamous Cell Cancer of the Head and Neck

A Phase1, First-in-Human, Open-Label, Dose Escalation and Expansion Study of CUE-101 Monotherapy in Second Line or CUE-101 Combination Therapy With Pembrolizumab in First Line Patients With HPV16+ Recurrent/Metastatic HNSCC KEYNOTE-A78

Primary Outcome Measure: Maximum tolerated dose of nivolumab [Time Frame: 56 days]
Will be defined as the starting dose level at which 1/6 subjects experience dose limiting toxicity (DLT) with the next higher dose having at least >= 2 participants encountering DLT. Toxicity data will be…

Primary objective: The primary objective of the study is to compare disease-free survival (DFS) of patients with high-risk cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC) treated with adjuvant cemiplimab, versus those treated with placebo, after surgery and radiation therapy (RT).

Primary objective to compare overall survival in metastatic prostate cancer patients who are randomized to standard systemic therapy (SST) plus definitive treatment of the primary tumor versus standard systemic therapy alone.

Primary objective to compare the overall survival (OS) in patients with metastatic RCC treated with ipilimumabnivolumab followed by either nivolumab versus cabozantinib-nivolumab.Secondary objectives: To determine PFS of patients treated with nivolumab versus nivolumab-cabozantinibTo evaluate…
