A Study of NKTR-262 in Combination With NKTR-214 and With NKTR-214 Plus Nivolumab in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumor Malignancies (REVEAL)

Patients will receive intratumoral (IT) NKTR-262 in 3-week treatment cycles. During the Phase 1 dose escalation portion of the trial, NKTR-262 will be combined with systemic administration of NKTR-214. After determination of the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of NKTR-262, NKTR-262 will be combined with NKTR-214 (Cohort A) and with NKTR-214 plus nivolumab (Cohort B). In the Phase 2 dose expansion portion, patients will be treated with NKTR-262 and NKTR-214 (doublet) or NKTR-262 and NKTR-214 plus nivolumab (triplet) in the relapsed/refractory setting and earlier lines of therapy.

Phase Ib Feasibility Trial of Neoadjuvant Nivolumab/Lirilumab in Cisplatin-Ineligible Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer (PrE0807)

Patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) who can not receive cisplatin therapy will receive nivolumab or nivolumab/lirilumab before a planned surgical procedure called a radical cystectomy (RC) to remove the bladder. Nivolumab works by attaching to and blocking a molecule called Programmed Death-1 (PD-1). Lirilumab attaches to and blocks a group of molecules called Killer Cell Immunoglobulin-Like Receptor (KIR). PD-1 and KIR are proteins present mainly on immune system cells, and each controls part of the immune system by shutting it down. It is hoped that by binding to and inactivating these proteins, these drugs can enhance the body's ability to detect, attack and destroy cancer cells. The purpose of this research study is to see whether nivolumab alone or combination of nivolumab and lirilumab given before surgery is effective in treating people who have bladder cancer, and to examine the side effects, good and bad, associated with nivolumab and lirilumab.

SAbR For Oligometastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

Hypothesis: Stereotactic ablative body radiation (SAbR) prolongs progression-free survival for patients with oligometastatic kidney cancer (RCC) and delays the initiation of systemic therapy. Primary Objectives: • To evaluate the delay in time to start of systemic therapy (TTST) as a surrogate of progression free survival (PFS), defined as the time from the first day of SAbR to start of systemic therapy. Secondary Objective: - To evaluate the modified progression-free survival (mPFS) for patients with oligometastatic renal cell carcinoma who are treated with SAbR. - To evaluate the overall survival (OS) - To evaluate the cancer specific survival (CSS) - To evaluate the local control rate of irradiated lesions. - To measure the health-related quality of life (HRQOL).

Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Patients With Advanced Refractory Solid Tumors, Lymphomas, or Multiple Myeloma (The MATCH Screening Trial)

This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

Inclusion Criteria:

• ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR SCREENING BIOPSY (STEP 0)
• Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 2 weeks prior to registration; patients that are pregnant or breast feeding are excluded; a female of childbearing potential is any woman, regardless of sexual orientation or whether they have undergone tubal ligation, who meets the following criteria:
• Has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or
• Has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 24 consecutive months (i.e., has had menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months)
• Women of childbearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry, for the duration of study participation, and for 4 months after completion of study; should a woman become pregnant or suspect while she or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately
• Patients must have histologically documented solid tumors or histologically confirmed diagnosis of lymphoma or multiple myeloma requiring therapy and meet one of the following criteria:
• Patients must have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and there must not be other approval/standard therapy available that has been shown to prolong overall survival (i.e. in a randomized trial against another standard treatment or by comparison to historical controls); patients who cannot receive other standard therapy that has been shown to prolong overall survival due to medical issues will be eligible, if other eligibility criteria are met; if the patient is currently receiving therapy, the clinician must have assessed that the current therapy is no longer benefitting the patient prior to enrolling on MATCH, regardless of whether it is considered standard OR
• Patients for whose disease no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong overall survival
• NOTE: No other prior malignancy is allowed except for the following: adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer; in situ cervical cancer; adequately treated stage I or II cancer from which the patient is currently in complete remission; any other cancer from which the patient has been disease-free for 5 years
• Patients must have measurable disease
• Patients must meet the criteria below and have received results from one of the designated outside laboratories indicating a "rare variant" that is an actionable Mutation of Interest (aMOI) for specific select subprotocols.
• The following requirements apply:
• The outside laboratory specifically notified the site that patient may be a potential candidate for MATCH due to a detected "rare variant"; the outside lab reports are NOT sufficient for this purpose
• NOTE: The content and format of these specific notifications for the Outside Assay process will vary depending on the designated outside lab in question, as they are each responsible for their own outreach efforts; it is strongly recommended that the designated outside laboratory be contacted to confirm the format and receipt of this notification prior to registering any patients to Step 0
• Patients with an applicable "rare variant" must be able to meet the eligibility criteria for the appropriate subprotocols within 4 weeks following notification of treatment assignment
• NOTE: The receipt of this notification (and the start of the associated deadline for Step 1 registration) may occur shortly after Step 0 registration, since these patients will not be submitting tissue for screening purposes; however, for certain "rare variant" arms, submission of archival tissue for central immunohistochemistry (IHC) testing may be required
• Registration to Step 0 must occur after stopping prior systemic anti-cancer therapy; there is no specific duration for which patients must be off treatment prior to registration to Step 0, as long as all eligibility criteria are met
• There is no particular window of time after notification of potential eligibility from an outside lab in which the patient must be registered to Step 0, but treatment slots will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis to those who do register to Step 0, and are not held for those notified of potential eligibility who do not register to Step 0
• Patients may have received other non-targeted, immunotherapy or targeted treatment between the prior genetic testing at the outside lab and registration to Step 0; the decision to stop such treatment in favor of participation in MATCH, if no further clinical benefit is expected, is per the treating physician's discretion; documentation of a lack of response to the prior treatment is not required in these cases
• NOTE: Other potential aMOIs that would be eligibility criteria for "NON RARE" arms, as determined by the designated laboratories, are not applicable for this process in MATCH
• NOTE: Tumor tissue for the confirmation of "rare variant" by the MATCH assay is to be submitted, preferably from the same time of collection as that evaluated by the designated outside laboratory
• Patient must not require the use of full dose coumarin-derivative anticoagulants such as warfarin; low molecular weight heparin is permitted for prophylactic or therapeutic use; factor X inhibitors are permitted
• NOTE: Warfarin may not be started while enrolled in the EAY131 study
• Stopping the anticoagulation for biopsy should be per site standard operating procedure (SOP)
• Patients must have Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status =< 1 and a life expectancy of at least 3 months
• Patients must not currently be receiving any other investigational agents
• Patients must not have any uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to:
• Symptomatic congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association [NYHA] classification of III/IV)
• Unstable angina pectoris or coronary angioplasty, or stenting within 6 months prior to registration to Step 0, 2, 4, 6
• Cardiac arrhythmia (ongoing cardiac dysrhythmias of National Cancer Institute [NCI] Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE] version [v]4 grade >= 2)
• Psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements
• Intra-cardiac defibrillators
• Known cardiac metastases
• Abnormal cardiac valve morphology (>= grade 2) documented by echocardiogram (ECHO) (as clinically indicated); (subjects with grade 1 abnormalities [i.e., mild regurgitation/stenosis] can be entered on study); subjects with moderate valvular thickening should not be entered on study
• NOTE: To receive an agent, patient must not have any uncontrolled intercurrent illness such as ongoing or active infection; patients with infections unlikely to be resolved within 2 weeks following screening should not be considered for the trial
• Patients must be able to swallow tablets or capsules; a patient with any gastrointestinal disease that would impair ability to swallow, retain, or absorb drug is not eligible
• Patients who are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive are eligible if:
• CD4+ cell count greater or equal to 250 cells/mm^3
• If patient is on antiretroviral therapy, there must be minimal interactions or overlapping toxicity of the antiretroviral therapy with the experimental cancer treatment; for experimental cancer therapeutics with CYP3A/4 interactions, protease inhibitor therapy is disallowed; suggested regimens to replace protease inhibitor therapy include dolutegravir given with tenofovir/emtricitabine; raltegravir given with tenofovir and emtricitabine; once daily combinations that use pharmacologic boosters may not be used
• No history of non-malignancy acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining conditions other than historical low CD4+ cell counts
• Probable long-term survival with HIV if cancer were not present
• Any prior therapy, radiotherapy (except palliative radiation therapy of 30 gray [Gy] or less), or major surgery must have been completed >= 4 weeks prior to start of treatment; all adverse events due to prior therapy have resolved to a grade 1 or better (except alopecia and lymphopenia) by start of treatment; palliative radiation therapy must have been completed at least 2 weeks prior to start of treatment; the radiotherapy must not be to a lesion that is included as measurable disease
• NOTE: Prostate cancer patients may continue their luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist

SAbR For Oligo-Progressive Renal Cell Cancer.

Metastatic kidney cancer patients on systemic therapy often develop resistance to limited sites that leads to changing of the systemic therapy. Local therapy to the sites of progression may allow patients to continue on the same systemic therapy that is otherwise effective and being tolerated well. Hypothesis: Stereotactic ablative radiation (SAbR) can delay the change of systemic therapy with oligoprogressive renal cell cancer (RCC) and improve progression free survival (PFS). Primary Objectives: • To evaluate the benefit of SAbR for oligo-progressive mRCC (Metastatic Renal Cell Cancer). Secondary Objectives: • To measure the toxicity, safety and tolerance of concurrent systemic therapy and SAbR for mRCC patients and its impact on quality of life.

Tacrolimus/Everolimus vs. Tacrolimus/MMF in Pediatric Heart Transplant Recipients Using the MATE Score (TEAMMATE)

The TEAMMATE Trial will enroll 210 pediatric heart transplant patients from 25 centers at 6 months post-transplant and follow each patient for 2.5 years. Half of the participants will receive everolimus and low-dose tacrolimus and the other half will receive tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil. The trial will determine which treatment is better at reducing the cumulative risk of coronary artery vasculopathy, chronic kidney disease and biopsy proven-acute cellular rejection without an increase in graft loss due to all causes (e.g. infection, PTLD, antibody mediated rejection).

Study of Cabozantinib in Combination With Atezolizumab to Subjects With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors

This is a multicenter Phase 1b, open-label study to assess safety, tolerability, preliminary efficacy, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of cabozantinib taken in combination with atezolizumab in subjects with multiple tumor types, including advanced urothelial carcinoma (UC) (including bladder, renal pelvis, ureter, urethra), renal cell carcinoma (RCC), castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), ovarian cancer (OC), endometrial cancer (EC), hepatocellular cancer (HCC), gastric cancer and gastroesophageal junction cancer (GC/GEJC), colorectal cancer (CRC), head and neck (H&N) cancer, and differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). The study consists of two stages: in the Dose Escalation Stage, an appropriate recommended cabozantinib dose for the combination with standard dosing regimen of atezolizumab will be established; in the Expansion Stage, tumor-specific cohorts will be enrolled in order to further evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combination treatment in these tumor indications. Two exploratory single-agent cabozantinib (SAC) cohorts will also be enrolled with UC or NSCLC subjects.

Pioglitazone to Reduce Sympathetic Overactivity in CKD Patients

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and death. An overactive sympathetic nervous system in CKD patients is one of the major mechanisms increasing the cardiovascular risks in this patient population. Recently, some studies have shown that a drug typically used to improve glucose control (pioglitazone) may also reduce sympathetic nerve activity and improve blood vessel function. The goal of this study is to determine whether a short-term treatment with pioglitazone can reduce sympathetic nerve impulses throughout the body in CKD patients.

Investigation to Minimize Prolapse Recurrence of the Vagina Using Estrogen (IMPROVE)

This study randomizes postmenopausal women with symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse planning native tissue transvaginal surgical repair to 6-8 weeks of preoperative and 1-year continued postoperative vaginal estrogen cream compared to placebo cream. This clinical trial and basic science investigation are designed to understand the mechanisms by which local estrogen treatment affects connective tissues of the pelvic floor and determine whether its use before and after prolapse repair will (i) improve success rates of the surgical intervention and minimize prolapse recurrence and (ii) impact favorably upon symptoms of other pelvic floor disorders.

Improving Chronic Disease Management With Pieces (ICD-Pieces)

ICD-Pieces (Parkland Intelligent e-Coordination and Evaluation System) trial is a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Healthcare Systems(HCS) Collaboratory demonstration project to improve management of patients with a triad of Chronic Kidney Disease, hypertension and diabetes with Pieces in four HCS including Parkland, Texas Health Resources (THR), ProHealth Physicians Incorporation and North Texas VA. Pieces is a decision support technology platform created by Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation(PCCI). The primary objective is to test the hypothesis that a collaborative model of primary care and subspecialty care intervention enhanced by Pieces and practice facilitators compared to standard clinical practice will reduce all-cause hospitalizations in patients with coexisting chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension. Secondary objectives are: a)Test if implementation of the collaborative model will reduce 30-day readmissions, emergency room visits, cardiovascular events or deaths and disease-specific hospitalizations; b) Develop and validate risk predictive models for disease-specific hospitalizations, all-cause hospitalizations, 30-day readmissions, emergency room visits, cardiovascular events and deaths for patients with chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension. c) Collect demographic and clinical data to assist phenotyping patients with chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension. d) Obtain safety data including Acute Kidney Injury, progression of chronic kidney disease, electrolyte disturbances and medication errors, and drug toxicity; e) Collect resource utilization information including hospitalizations, emergency room visits, outpatient visits, and diagnostic or therapeutic procedures completed. Candidate patients in selected clinics will be enrolled over a period of 2 years and followed for 12 months. Pieces will ascertain both primary and secondary outcomes from the Electronic Health Record supported with data from the Dallas Fort Worth Hospital Council (DFWHC), Accountable Care Organization (ACO) reports and VA database, and deaths from Social Security Index (SSI) data.

Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced Bladder Cancer (AMBASSADOR)

This randomized phase III trial studies how well pembrolizumab works in treating patients with bladder cancer that has spread from where it started to nearby tissue or lymph nodes. Monoclonal antibodies recognizing and blocking checkpoint molecules can enhance the patient's immune response and therefore help fight cancer. Pembrolizumab is one of the monoclonal antibodies that block the PD-1 axis and can interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow.

Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Pediatric Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas, or Histiocytic Disorders (The Pediatric MATCH Screening Trial)

This Pediatric MATCH screening and multi-sub-study phase II trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in pediatric patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, or histiocytic disorders that have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and/or for which no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong survival. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic changes or abnormalities (mutations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic mutation, and may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors or non-Hodgkin lymphomas.

Nivolumab in Treating Patients With Localized Kidney Cancer Undergoing Nephrectomy (PROSPER)

This phase III trial compares nephrectomy (surgery to remove a kidney or part of a kidney) with or without nivolumab in treating patients with kidney cancer that is limited to a certain part of the body (localized). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving nivolumab before nephrectomy may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of normal tissue that needs to be removed, and after nephrectomy to increase survival. It is not yet known whether nivolumab and nephrectomy is more effective than nephrectomy alone in treating patients with kidney cancer.

• A brief (less than 3 weeks) course of corticosteroids (any amount) for prophylaxis (for example: contrast dye allergy) or for treatment of non-autoimmune conditions (for example: nausea, delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction caused by a contact allergen) is permitted
• No uncontrolled adrenal insufficiency
• No known chronic active liver disease or evidence of acute or chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV)
• No serious intercurrent illness, including ongoing or active infection requiring parenteral antibodies
• No known evidence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, since the effects of nivolumab on anti-retroviral therapy have not been studied
• No known medical condition (e.g. a condition associated with uncontrolled diarrhea such as ulcerative colitis or acute diverticulitis) that, in the investigator's opinion, would increase the risk associated with study participation or interfere with the interpretation of safety results

Gemcitabine Hydrochloride and Cisplatin With or Without Nab-Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Advanced Biliary Tract Cancers

This phase III trial studies how well gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin given with or without nab-paclitaxel work in treating patients with newly diagnosed biliary tract cancers that have spread to other places in the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride, cisplatin, and nab-paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not known if giving gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin with or without nab-paclitaxel may work better at treating biliary tract cancers.

Acute Kidney Injury Genomics and Biomarkers in TAVR Study

In the last decade, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become an increasingly utilized alternative procedure for replacing a stenotic aortic valve. This study collects clinical information, DNA, blood and urine samples (throughout procedural hospitalization) in order to investigate the incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients undergoing TAVR and to identify key clinical and procedural predictors of AKI. This study seeks to identify blood and urine biomarkers that can be used for early detection of AKI around the time of the procedure. The study seeks to assess for novel genetic variants associated with development of AKI after TAVR. Finally the study seeks to assess for novel genetic variants and biomarkers that are associated with adverse cardiovascular events after TAVR and to further explore how these events may inter-relate with acute kidney injury.
