In a nutshell
This phase 1/2 trial aims to study the safety and effectiveness of the treatment with different targeted therapy in patients with advanced lung or colorectal cancer. The main outcome to be measured is the response rate of the tumor to the treatment and the negative side effects. This trial is recruiting in California, Illinois and Texas, United States.
How will it work
Patients will receive increasing doses, by injection, of azacitidine over days 1 and 7, pembrolizumab over 30 minutes every 3 weeks on day 1 and epacadostat tablets twice daily. Treatment will repeat until disease progression or unacceptable side effects. Participants will be followed for up to 18 months.
