Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to learn more about personalized cancer therapy including response to treatment and side effects. Information from the patient's medical record regarding the tests and treatments they have received, or will receive, for their cancer will be collected. Genomic testing on tissue from the primary tumor or metastases will be used to match therapy recommendations. Patients in which there is no appropriate matched therapy will receive systemic chemotherapy according to their treating physician's discretion. This information will be used to describe whether or not patients respond better when their physicians choose to treat them according to the genetic makeup of their tumor.

Condition or disease

Detailed Description:
This is a prospective, open label navigational investigation to evaluate the feasibility of using molecular profile-based evidence to determine individualized cancer therapy for patients with incurable malignancies. This is a non-randomized, histology-agnostic trial. While it is known that individual histologies are composed of a heterogeneous mix of genomic alterations, it is not clear that one case mix is better or worse than another. Thus, a strategy of molecular matching that may apply across cancers is being tested. All eligible and consented patients will have their tumor tissues genomic profiled by Foundation Medicine's FoundationOne genomic analysis. Patients will be stratified into Group 1 (treatment naïve, unresectable/medically unfit for surgery), Group 2 (treatment naïve, metastatic), and Group 3 (prior treated), respectively. Following analysis for genomic alterations, matched therapy, if available, will be recommended by the Study Committee or Molecular Tumor Board. If the patients received the matched therapy, they are designated as in Arm A. Otherwise, if the patients received the unmatched therapy (i.e., treating physician's choice of traditional systemic chemotherapy), they are designated as in Arm B. The study feasibility will be measured by the ability to enroll patients, the acceptable turnaround time and the actionable information obtained from the genomic profiling, and the viability of identifying and delivering the matched therapy. The treatment efficacy will be determined among the patients groups and treatment arms. The safety profile of the treatment will also be assessed.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of patients who receive the molecularly targeted matched treatment after recommendations based on genomic analysis [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Number of patients who received study therapy after recommendations after genetic test versus patients who did not

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of patients who consent to enroll into the study [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    To calculate the number of patients who have consented to be on the study

  2. Time from informed consent to receipt of genomic analysis [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    To calculate the time between getting the patient's consent and them receiving their genetic test

  3. Proportion of patients with actionable genomic alteration [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    To calculate the number of patients who have a genetic test result that can be matched with appropriate treatment that can target their specific mutation

  4. Proportion of patients with insurance coverage for receiving molecularly targeted matched treatment based on genomic analysis [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    To calculate the number of patients who are covered by insurance to receive treatment appropriately targeting their specific genetic test result

Inclusion Criteria Patients must meet all of the inclusion criteria to participate in this study.

  1. Patients with incurable malignancies with more than 50% 2-year cancer-associated mortality (as estimated by two physician and where appropriate according to 2014 National Cancer database)

    Diseases include, but are not limited to:

    Ampullary carcinoma Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (IHCC) Appendiceal cancer Melanoma Colorectal cancer (CRC) Non-KIT GIST (gastrointestinal stromal tumor) Extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (EHCC) Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) Esophageal adenocarcinoma Ovarian cancer Gallbladder cancer (GBCA) Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) Gastric adenocarcinoma Sarcoma (high-grade) Head and neck cancer Small bowel adenocarcinoma (including duodenal) Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) Urothelial cancer

  2. Patients with cancer of unknown primary or a rare tumor (for example, fewer than 15 cases per 100,000 per year) with no approved therapies. (Patients in this inclusion criteria must meet all other exclusion and inclusion criteria except inclusion criteria #1)
  3. Patients with incurable malignancies, irrespective of 2-year mortality, who, in the opinion of the investigator have no treatment option expected to yield significant clinical benefit."
  4. Patients must have at least one of the following for a diagnosis/disease status:

    1. Unresectable disease
    2. Metastatic disease
    3. Medically unfit for surgical resection but with an expected survival of > 3 months, ECOG < 2 and NYHA status ≤ II (refer to status definitions in tables below)
    4. Disease where no conventional therapy leads to a survival benefit > 6 months in the respective cohort and line of therapy for which the patient is otherwise eligible
    5. Actionable alterations determined by FoundationOneTM
  5. Treatment naïve for his or her newly diagnosed malignancy for enrollment to Groups 1 or 2.
  6. Status post 1 or more unmatched systemic therapy regimens for enrollment to Group 3.
  7. Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent.
