This phase II trial studies how well afatinib dimaleate works in treating patients with urothelial cancer that cannot be removed surgically and has grown after treatment with standard first-line chemotherapy. Afatinib dimaleate may turn off the function of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) receptors, which may slow the growth of cancer cells or cause some of the cells to die.
This randomized clinical trial studies the Family Caregiver Palliative Care Intervention in supporting caregivers of patients with stage II-IV gastrointestinal, gynecologic, urologic and lung cancers. Education and telephone counseling may reduce stress and improve the well-being and quality of life of caregivers of cancer patients.
This study is about two chemotherapy study drug combinations (regimens) that are used for urothelial (bladder or upper urinary tract) cancer. Both study drug regimens, gemcitabine (gemcitabine hydrochloride) plus cisplatin, and high-dose-intensity MVAC (methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin plus cisplatin), are standard chemotherapy regimens. Both regimens are used to treat people with urothelial cancer that has spread to other organs. Both study drug regimens have been proven to be effective in lowering the risk of the cancer coming back, but it is not known which regimen is the best. This study hopes to learn whether there is a difference in the effectiveness and side effects of these two study drug regimens when they are given to people who have had their urothelial cancer completely removed.
This phase II trial is studying how well giving gemcitabine, paclitaxel, and doxorubicin together with pegfilgrastim works in treating patients with metastatic or unresectable bladder cancer or urinary tract cancer and kidney dysfunction. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, paclitaxel, and doxorubicin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Colony stimulating factors, such as pegfilgrastim, may increase the number of immune cells found in bone marrow or peripheral blood and may help the immune system recover from the side effects of chemotherapy. Giving combination chemotherapy together with pegfilgrastim may kill more tumor cells. Chemotherapy drugs may have different effects in patients who have changes in their kidney function.
This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well pazopanib works in treating patients with metastatic urothelial cancer. Pazopanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.
This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well VEGF Trap works in treating patients with recurrent, locally advanced, or metastatic cancer of the urothelium. VEGF Trap may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor.
This phase II trial is studying how well sorafenib works in treating patients with progressive regional or metastatic cancer of the urothelium. Sorafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.
Bortezomib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth. This phase II trial is studying how well bortezomib works in treating patients with advanced transitional cell carcinoma of the urothelium.
Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of ixabepilone in treating patients who have progressive or metastatic urinary tract cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die
Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of arsenic trioxide in treating patients who have recurrent cancer of the bladder or urinary tract. Arsenic trioxide may kill tumor cells that have become resistant to standard chemotherapy regimens.
