Intra-lesional Nivolumab Therapy for Limited Cutaneous Kaposi Sarcoma

Infection with Kaposi sarcoma herpesvirus (KSHV, or human herpesvirus-8) causes Kaposi sarcoma (KS). These virally associated diseases occur more frequently in HIV-infected individuals, but can also be found in HIV-uninfected population. Evolution of immunosuppressive mechanisms presumably plays a permissive role in the development, progression and recurrence of these virus-associated cancers ...

Phase N/A

Compression Therapy for Leg Ulcers and Kaposi Sarcoma in Western Kenya

Compression therapy is a well-established cornerstone therapy and part of routine clinical care for chronic leg ulcers from venous disease and lymphedema, including Kaposi sarcoma (KS)-associated lymphedema. Chronic leg ulcers, from trauma or chronic venous disease, and lymphedema have a significant impact on quality of life, driven by pain, foul ...

Phase N/A

Valganciclovir Four Weeks Prior to cART Initiation Compared to Standard Therapy for Disseminated Kaposi Sarcoma

Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is an angioproliferative disease associated with infection by the Human Immune Deficiency virus (HIV), mediated by cytokines, in which the presence of Human Herpes-Virus 8 (HHV-8) and immunosuppression are essential for the disease process. It has an unpredictable course and can be indolent or can entertain a ...

Early Phase Evaluation of ABC294640 in Patients With Refractory/Relapsed Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma or Kaposi Sarcoma

Sphingosine Kinase (SK) is an innovative target for anti-cancer therapy due to its critical role in lipid metabolism which drives cancer cell growth. We have found that the SK inhibitor ABC294640 (which is formulated for clinical use as an oral agent) significantly inhibits and reverses progression of virus-associated DLBCL in ...

Phase

Sorafenib in Treating Patients With Kaposi's Sarcoma

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Assess the toxicity profile and pharmacokinetics of sorafenib in patients with HIV-related Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) who are receiving ritonavir. - Assess, in a preliminary manner, the pharmacokinetics and toxicity profile of sorafenib in patients with HIV-related or HIV-unrelated (classic) KS who are not receiving ritonavir. Secondary - ...

Phase

sEphB4-HSA in Treating Patients With Kaposi Sarcoma

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the clinical response and toxicity of recombinant EphB4-HSA fusion protein (sEphB4-HSA) (at initial dosing of 15 mg/kg every 2 weeks) in participants with Kaposi sarcoma. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the safety of sEphB4-HSA in participants with Kaposi sarcoma (KS). II. To determine trough level ...

Specimen Collections From Patients With HIV Infection KSHV Infection Viral-Related Pre-malignant Lesions and Cancer

BACKGROUND -A number of important scientific advances can be made through the study of blood, bone marrow, tumor, or other tissue samples from patients with HIV infection, infection with Kaposi s sarcoma associated herpesvirus (KSHV), infection with other oncogenic viruses, or cancer. This protocol provides a mechanism to effect a ...

Phase N/A

Virotherapy and Natural History Study of KHSV-Associated Multricentric Castleman s Disease With Correlates of Disease Activity

Background Multicentric Castleman's disease (MCD) is a rare but lethal Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) associated lymphoproliferative disorder with a median survival of 2 years. It occurs more often in HIV-infected individuals than those without HIV infection. The poor prognosis is not fully explained by the underlying HIV, as the HIV-negative ...

Phase

Nelfinavir Mesylate in Treating Patients With Kaposi Sarcoma

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the efficacy of a therapeutic escalation strategy consisting of standard dose nelfinavir (nelfinavir mesylate), followed by high dose nelfinavir, for the treatment of Kaposi sarcoma (KS) tumor lesions. With 36 evaluable participants, the null hypothesis will be rejected if 11 or more participants respond. SECONDARY ...

Phase

An Evaluation of Tc 99m Tilmanocept by Intravenous (IV) Injection in Kaposi Sarcoma (KS)

This is a prospective, single-center, open-label, within-subject study of intravenously injected Tc 99m tilmanocept in the localization and detection of cutaneous and non-cutaneous KS tumor(s) in subjects with biopsy-confirmed KS. Six IV doses (g/mCi) of tilmanocept will be evaluated in cohort groups. This study is designed to evaluate the safety ...
