Metastatic Gallbladder Carcinoma clinical trials at UC Irvine
1 research study open to eligible people
Testing A New Combination of Anti-cancer Immune Therapies, Atezolizumab and CDX-1127 (Varlilumab) With or Without the Addition of A Third Anti-cancer Drug, Cobimetinib, for Advanced-Stage Biliary Tract Cancer
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This phase II trial investigates the effect of combining two immune therapies, atezolizumab and CDX-1127 (varlilumab), with or without cobimetinib, in treating patients with biliary tract cancer that cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Varlilumab is a monoclonal antibody specific for a molecule called CD27 and may lead to growth inhibition of CD27-expressing tumor cells upon administration. Cobimetinib is in a class of medications called kinase inhibitors. It works by blocking the action of an abnormal protein that signals cancer cells to multiply. This helps slow or stop the spread of cancer cells. Giving atezolizumab in combination with varlilumab and cobimetinib may work better than atezolizumab and varlilumab alone in treating patients with unresectable biliary tract cancer.
