Interventional trials
Determine whether experimental treatments or new ways of using known therapies are safe and effective under controlled environments.
Observational trials
Address health issues in large groups of people or populations in natural settings.
Participants are currently being recruited and enrolled.
Active, not recruiting
Study is ongoing (i.e., patients are being treated or examined), but enrollment has completed.
Not yet recruiting
Participants are not yet being recruited or enrolled.
Enrolling by invitation
Participants are being (or will be) selected from a predetermined population.
The study has concluded normally; participants are no longer being examined or treated (i.e., last patient's last visit has occurred).
Study halted prematurely, prior to enrollment of first participant.
Recruiting or enrolling participants has halted prematurely but potentially will resume.
Recruiting or enrolling participants has halted prematurely and will not resume; participants are no longer being examined or treated.
July 2015 -
The primary objective is to develop an in vitro model of cancer for laboratory study using liver, biliary and pancreatic cancer tissue. The secondary objective is to study the genetic and cellular biology of cancer of the liver, biliary tract and the pancreas. As well the investigators hope to compare molecular and cellular biology of cancer cells with normal cells as well as potentially test the efficacy of current and future anti-cancer therapies. Samples will be collected from tissue that has been resected as part of the treatment for a patient diagnosed with liver, bile duct or pancreas cancer.

May 2015 - May 2018
The purpose of this study is to see if the investigational drug, RRx-001, an epigenetic agent, which turns on a number of beneficial genes that the tumor has silenced, can resensitize the tumor(s), in other words make it/them re-respond to gemcitabine and cisplatin, which, hopefully, will translate to a longer lifespan. The name of the open-label study, which means that patients will know what treatments they are receiving, is EPIC, a hybrid or combination of EPIgenetic for the mechanism of action of RRx-001 and Cholangiocarcinoma. The study treatment is divided into two stages. During the first stage, patients will receive RRx-001, which is administered intravenously twice weekly, for a fixed time period of six weeks. At that time the second stage starts in which cisplatin and gemcitabine are reintroduced for as long as the tumors respond to them to determine whether resensitization has occurred. The primary objective of this clinical trial is to evaluate the progression-free survival (PFS) of patients at 9 weeks after the reintroduction of gemcitabine and cisplatin.

Cholangiocarcinoma, is a malignant gastrointestinal tumor of low incidence with a poor prognosis. Chemotherapy is the most common treatment for advanced disease. On the basis of a phase III clinical study, cisplatin plus gemcitabine is considered standard first-line treatment in advanced cholangiocarcinoma patients, but there is no established second line therapy. Since fluorouracil and leucovorin combined with irinotecan and oxaliplatin (FOLFIRINOX) appears to be safe and demonstrated efficacy in clinical studies of advanced pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer and a phase I study in cholangiocarcinoma, this combination could be an effective second-line treatment for patients with advanced cholangiocarcinoma.

March 2015 - July 2018
Primary objective: To investigate the objective response rate in patients with ROS1 or ALK over-expressed locally advanced, or metastatic intrahepatic or hilar cholangiocarcinoma receiving LDK378 Secondary objectives:The progression-free survival ,The disease control rate ,The overall survival ,The toxicity profiles , The correlation between clinical outcomes and the potential predictive biomarker for tumor response

September 2014 - October 2017
Patients with advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) who are not eligible for curative surgery, transplantation, or ablative therapies will receive nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine chemotherapy. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the combination of nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine. The effectiveness will be determined by improvement in the length of time during and after treatment, that the CCA does not get worse.

June 2014 - December 2016
This study considers the safety and tolerability of increasing doses of CX-4945 in combination with gemcitabine plus cisplatin to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), followed by a randomized study that compares antitumor activity in cholangiocarcinoma patients receiving the standard of care gemcitabine plus cisplatin versus CX-4945 at the combination MTD with gemcitabine plus cisplatin.

April 2014 - April 2022
This is a multicentre, prospective, randomized, controlled phase III trial designed to assess the clinical performance of gemcitabine with cisplatin and observation vs. observation alone in patients after curative intent resection of cholangiocarcinoma and muscle invasive gall bladder carcinoma.

March 2014 - May 2016
The purpose of this Phase I, multicenter study is to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and clinical activity of AG-120 in advanced solid tumors, including glioma, that harbor an IDH1 mutation. The first portion of the study is a dose escalation phase where cohorts of patients will receive ascending oral doses of AG-120 to determine maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or the recommended Phase II dose. The second portion of the study is a dose expansion phase where four arms of patients will receive AG-120 to further evaluate the safety, tolerability, and clinical activity of the recommended Phase II dose. Anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity occurs or at Investigator discretion.

March 2014 - December 2016
The study is a multicenter randomized (1:1) placebo-controlled, double-blinded phase II trial aiming to demonstrate an improvement of median PFS when treating locally advanced unresectable or metastatic patients suffering from an intra-hepatic or hilum (mass-forming) cholangiocarcinoma with Regorafenib as compared to placebo, and after progression after GEM-CDDP (or GEM-OX), or gemcitabine alone followed or preceded by platinum (CDDP or oxaliplatin)-based chemotherapy. The principal objective is to investigate Regorafenib efficacy by prospectively evaluating the PFS after the administration of Regorafenib combined with BSC as compared to placebo with BSC. Hypothesis is a 50% improvement in median PFS (from 6 weeks to 12 weeks in Regorafenib group).
