Catholic Health Cancer Clinical Trials

The Future of Cancer Therapy

Catholic Health is strengthening its commitment to providing outstanding cancer care for Long Islanders by becoming a member of Roswell Park Care Network. Based in upstate New York, Roswell Park has long enjoyed a sterling reputation as one of the nation's premier cancer centers.

Now it is partnering with physicians, hospitals and supportive care teams across the state to create an expansive community-based care network dedicated to easing the burden of cancer. This network provides increased access to clinical trials—some of which are only available at Roswell Park.

Through its affiliation with Roswell Park, Catholic Health has the opportunity to provide cancer patients with some of the newest and most innovative treatments available only through clinical trials.

Why Clinical Trials?

Scientist with mircroscope

A clinical trial is a type of clinical research study that tests the safety and effectiveness of new medical approaches. Some clinical trials test a drug, a medical device or a new way of doing surgery. Other trials test new ways to prevent disease, diagnose cancer or improve quality of life. Clinical trials play an essential role in the fight against cancer. They are the only scientific way to prove whether a new treatment works better than the current standard of care.

  • Adjuvant Lung Cancer Enrichment Marker Identification and Sequencing Trial (ALCHEMIST)
    • Principal Investigators: Dr. Bhoomi Mehrotra, Dr. Ashish Sangal
  • A Master Protocol to Evaluate Biomarker-Driven Therapies and Immunotherapies in Previously-Treated Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (Lung-Map Screening Study)
    • Principal Investigators: Dr. Bhoomi Mehrotra, Dr. Ashish Sangal
  • Randomized Phase III Study of Combination AZD9291 (osimertinib) and Bevacizumab versus AZD9291 (osimertinib) Alone as First-Line Treatment for Patients with Metastatic EGFR-Mutant Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

Metastatic Disease

  • ASTEROID- Assessing Single-Fraction SBRT versus Standard Palliative Radiation in Patients with Metastatic Disease

Multiple Myeloma

What is multiple myeloma?

Watch: Signs and Symptoms of Myeloma (Courtesy of Roswell Park Comprehensive Care Center)

  • Phase II Study of Targeting CD28 in Multiple Myeloma with Abatacept to Overcome Resistance to Chemotherapy
    • Principal Investigators: Dr. Dilip Patel, Dr. Sudha Mukhi
    • Summary: This Phase II trial studies how well abatacept, ixazomib citrate, and dexamethasone work in treating patients with multiple myeloma that is resistant to chemotherapy. Abatacept may block certain proteins that are present on multiple myeloma cells that have been shown to protect against chemotherapy. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as ixazomib citrate and dexamethasone, 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. Giving abatacept, ixazomib citrate, and dexamethasone may work better at treating patients with multiple myeloma resistant to chemotherapy.
