Clinical Trials Related to Zelboraf (Vemurafenib)

Vemurafenib Neoadjuvant Trial in Locally Advanced Thyroid Cancer [Recruiting]
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn about how vemurafenib may affect certain biomarkers in patients with PTC. Biomarkers are in the blood/tissue and may be related to your reaction to the study drug. The safety of this drug will also be studied. Vemurafenib is designed to block the BRAF gene mutation. This mutation causes cancer and cancer growth. By blocking this mutation, the drug may kill the cancer cells with the mutation and/or stop the tumor from growing.

The Safety and Efficacy Study of Vemurafenib (CT) Compared With Vemurafenib (Zelbolaf�) in Advanced Patients Harboring the V600 BRAF Mutation [Active, not recruiting]
The safety and efficacy study of Vemurafenib (CT) compared with Vemurafenib (Zelbolaf®) Advanced patients carrying the V600E BRAF mutation.

Vemurafenib in Children With Recurrent/Refractory BRAFV600E-mutant Gliomas [Recruiting]
This is a multicenter, safety and pharmacokinetic trial to determine the MTD and/or select a recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of vemurafenib in children with recurrent or refractory gliomas containing the BRAFV600E mutation.

Study of PX-866 and Vemurafenib in Patients With Advanced Melanoma [Terminated]
The purpose of the phase 1 portion of the study is to determine the maximally tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended dose (RD) and the safety/tolerability of PX-866 in combination vemurafenib in patients with any advanced BRAF-mutant cancer. The purpose of the phase 2 portion of the study is to compare progression free survival (PFS), antitumor activity (response rate), disease control rate (DCR), and the safety and tolerability of PX-866 in combination with vemurafenib vs. vemurafenib alone in patients with advanced BRAF-mutant melanoma at the doses recommended from Phase 1.

Study of Vemurafenib, Carboplatin, and Paclitaxel [Recruiting]
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of vemurafenib that can be given in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel patients with advanced cancer. The safety of the study drug combination will also be studied. Vemurafenib is designed to block a protein (called mutated BRAF) that is only found in moles (spots) of the skin and certain types of cancer cells. This drug may slow the growth of or kill these cells. Carboplatin is designed to slow the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from making new DNA (the genetic material of cells). Paclitaxel is designed to slow the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing into new cells.
