Muscle Invasive Disease

This study will determine the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) for oral bosutinib when used in combination with pemetrexed. The MTD is the highest dose of bosutinib with pemetrexed that can be given without causing severe side effects. This study will also test the safety of this combination and see what effects (good or bad) it has on participants and their cancer.

This pilot phase II trial studies how well sapanisertib works in treating patients with bladder cancer that has spread from where it started to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced) or other places in the body (metastatic) with tuberous sclerosis (TSC)1 and/or TSC2 mutations (changes in deoxyribonucleic acid [DNA]).Sapanisertib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

The purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of using Ultrapro mesh along with the usual bladder removal surgery, versus having the usual bladder removal surgery without the use of the mesh.

Radical cystectomy with urinary diversion is associated with substantial perioperative morbidity, including deep venous thrombosis, prolonged ileus, and postoperative functional decline. Post-operative morbidity after cystectomy prolongs the length of stay, increases the risk of readmission, and adds substantially to health care costs. Protocols that emphasize early and frequent ambulation after surgery decreases post-operative morbidity, but poor patient adherence diminishes the effectiveness o

The purpose of this study is to learn whether it is feasible to use the LifeScience Technologies application (LST app) in patients undergoing radical cystectomy with the eventual goal to reduce complications and readmissions to the hospital after surgery.

Patients scheduled for a cystectomy at Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) will be enrolled into a randomized, double blinded clinical trial to assess if postoperative pain and ileus are reduced by perioperative intravenous lidocaine infusion versus placebo. The hypothesis is that patients receiving the lidocaine infusion will experience better pain control and ileus resolution. It is believed that lidocaine patients will also have less opioid requirement, less mortality, a shorter length of s

The purpose of this study is to test the safety of the study drug, atezolizumab, when combined with the standard chemotherapy drugs, gemcitabine and cisplatin (or GC). This study will help researchers begin to understand whether combining GC with atezolizumab is better, the same, or worse than the usual approach of using GC alone.

Study of Pembrolizumab With or Without Platinum-based Combination Chemotherapy Versus Chemotherapy Alone in Urothelial Carcinoma (MK-3475-361/KEYNOTE-361) The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab (MK-3475) with or without chemotherapy versus chemotherapy alone in participants with advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (bladder cancer). The primary hypotheses are that pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy is superior to chemotherapy alone with res

The purpose of this study is to evaluate a bladder preserving approach for patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer using neoadjuvant accelerated Methotrexate, Vinblastine, Doxorubicin, and Cisplatin (AMVAC) followed by chemoradiation with intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) and Mitomycin C. Patients will have maximal transurethral resection, followed by three cycles of AMVAC. Once AMVAC is complete, patients will have a second maximal transurethral resecti

This randomized clinical trial studies gabapentin in reducing the need for pain medication in patients with bladder cancer undergoing surgery to remove the bladder and nearby tissue and organs. Gabapentin may reduce the amount of pain medicine required after surgery, improve pain after surgery, and/or reduce the length of hospital stay after surgery.
