This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of a switch to MK-8591A (a fixed dose combination of doravirine and islatravir) in human immunodeficiency virus -1 (HIV-1)-infected participants virologically suppressed on a protocol-specified antiretroviral regimen. The primary hypothesis is that a switch to MK-8591A will be non-inferior to continued treatment with baseline antiretroviral therapy (ART) as assessed by the proportion of participants with HIV-1 ribonucleic acid (RNA) ≥50 copies/mL at Week 48.

This study is referred to as the "umbrella master protocol" for pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This pembrolizumab NSCLC umbrella master protocol uses a platform design and consists of this master screening study and three substudies. Each substudy will enroll a different population of NSCLC participants. The goal of this umbrella master protocol is to screen potential participants with NSCLC for enrollment into 1 of 3 substudies. Participants must first enroll in this pembrolizumab master protocol study and undergo screening for NSCLC that will be used to assign them to participation in 1 of 3 pembrolizumab substudies.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Lung failure is the main cause of death related to COVID-19 infection. The main objective of this study is to evaluate if Ibrutinib is safe and can reduce respiratory failure in participants with COVID-19 infection. Ibrutinib is an investigational drug being developed for the treatment of COVID-19. Participants are assigned 1 of 2 groups, called treatment arms. Each group receives a different treatment. There is a 1 in 2 chance that participants will be assigned to placebo. Around 46 adult participants with a diagnosis of COVID-19 will be enrolled at multiple sites in Unites States. Participants will receive oral doses of Ibrutinib or placebo capsules once daily for 4 weeks along with standard care. There will be higher treatment burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care. The effect of the treatment will be checked by medical assessments, blood tests, checking for side effects.

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of necitumumab when given together with osimertinib in treating patients with EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer that is stage IV or has come back (recurrent) and who have progressed on a previous EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as necitumumab, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Osimertinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving necitumumab with osimertinib may be a better treatment for EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer.

More than 20,000 participants have now enrolled into the study. With annual assessments and no end date, Enroll-HD has built a large and rich database of longitudinal clinical data and biospecimens that form the basis for studies developing tools and biomarkers for progression and prognosis, identifying clinically-relevant phenotypic characteristics, and establishing clearly defined endpoints for interventional studies. Periodic cuts of the database are now available to any interested researcher to use in their research - visit www.enroll-hd.org/for-researchers/access-data/ to learn more.
