This randomized phase III trial studies how well initial treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab followed by dabrafenib and trametinib works and compares it to initial treatment with dabrafenib and trametinib followed by ipilimumab and nivolumab in treating patients with stage III-IV melanoma that contains a mutation known as BRAFV600 and cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab and nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Dabrafenib and trametinib may block tumor growth by targeting the BRAFV600 gene. It is not yet known whether treating patients with ipilimumab and nivolumab followed by dabrafenib and trametinib is more effective than treatment with dabrafenib and trametinib followed by ipilimumab and nivolumab.

This is a 2-part, phase 3 clinical study evaluating the antiretroviral activity and safety/tolerability of islatravir (ISL), doravirine (DOR), and a fixed dose combination (FDC) of DOR/ISL (also known as MK-8591A) in heavily treatment-experienced (HTE) participants with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection. It is hypothesized that the percentage of participants receiving DOR/ISL to achieve ≥0.5 log10 decrease in HIV-1 ribonucleic acid (RNA) from study baseline (Day 1) to Day 8 is superior to placebo, each given in combination with failing antiretroviral therapy (ART).

This phase III trial studies how well active surveillance, bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, or cisplatin work in treating pediatric and adult patients with germ cell tumors. Active surveillance may help doctors to monitor subjects with low risk germ cell tumors after their tumor is removed. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, and cisplatin, 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.

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 may 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 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.

MOMENTUM is a randomized, double-blind, active control Phase 3 trial intended to confirm the differentiated clinical benefits of the investigational drug momelotinib (MMB) versus danazol (DAN) in symptomatic and anemic subjects who have previously received an approved Janus kinase inhibitor (JAKi) therapy for myelofibrosis (MF). The purpose of this clinical study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of MMB to DAN in treating and reducing: 1) disease related symptoms, 2) the need for blood transfusions and 3) splenomegaly, in adults with primary MF, post-polycythemia vera MF or post-essential thrombocythemia MF. The study is planned in countries including, but not limited to: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, UK, and US. Subjects must be symptomatic with a MFSAF v4.0 Total Symptom Score of ≥ 10 at screening, and be anemic with Hgb < 10 g/dL. For subjects with ongoing JAKi therapy at screening, JAKi therapy must be tapered over a period of at least 1 week, followed by a 2-week non-treatment washout interval prior to randomization. Subjects will be randomized 2:1 to orally self-administer blinded treatment: MMB plus placebo or DAN plus placebo. Subjects randomized to receive MMB who complete the randomized treatment period to the end of Week 24 may continue to receive MMB in the open-label extended treatment period to the end of Week 204 (a total period of treatment of approximately 4 years) if the subject tolerates and continues to benefit from MMB. Subjects randomized to receive DAN may cross-over to MMB open-label treatment in the following circumstances: - at the end of Week 24 if they complete the randomized treatment period; or - at the end of Week 24 if they discontinue treatment with DAN but continue study assessments and do not receive prohibited medications including alternative active anti-MF therapy; or - at any time during the randomized treatment period if they meet the protocol-defined criteria for radiographically-confirmed symptomatic splenic progression. Subjects randomized to receive DAN who are receiving clinical benefit at the end of Week 24 may choose to continue DAN therapy up to Week 48. The comparator treatment, DAN, is an approved medication in the US and in some other countries and is recommended by national guidelines as a treatment for anemia in MF.

This phase III trial studies how well vitamin D3 given with standard chemotherapy and bevacizumab works in treating patients with colorectal cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Vitamin D3 helps the body use calcium and phosphorus to make strong bones and teeth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as leucovorin calcium, fluorouracil, oxaliplatin, and irinotecan hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving vitamin D3 with chemotherapy and bevacizumab may work better in shrinking or stabilizing colorectal cancer. It is not yet known whether giving high-dose vitamin D3 in addition to chemotherapy and bevacizumab would extend patients' time without disease compared to the usual approach (chemotherapy and bevacizumab).

Each participant will roll-over to this extension study in one of the following three phases, depending on the study phase they were in at the completion of the parent study. Participants who were in the First Course Phase of study treatment in their parent study will enter the First Course Phase of this study and complete up to 35 doses or more every 3 weeks (Q3W) or 17 doses or more every 6 weeks (Q6W) of study treatment with pembrolizumab or a pembrolizumab-based combination according to arm assignment. Participants who were in the Follow-up Phase in the parent study (post-treatment or Survival Follow-up Phase) will enter the Survival Follow-up Phase of this study. Participants who were in the Second Course Phase in their parent study will enter Second Course Phase of this study and complete up to 17 doses Q3W or 8 doses Q6W of study treatment with pembrolizumab or a pembrolizumab-based combination according to arm assignment. Any participant originating from a parent trial where crossover to pembrolizumab was permitted upon disease progression may be may be eligible for 35 doses as Q3W or 17 doses Q6W of pembrolizumab (approximately 2 years), if they progress while on the control arm and pembrolizumab is approved for the indication in the country where the potential eligible crossover participant is being evaluated.
