To Evaluate Safety and Tolerability of Dalantercept Plus Axitinib in Patients with Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) to determine the recommended dose level of Dalantercept plus Axitinib for Part 2. Burgess, Earle Frederick
The primary objectives are as follows:
 To evaluate the safety, tolerability, and dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) of AGEN1884 in subjects with advanced or metastatic cancer (solid tumors or lymphoma) including but not limited to carcinoma, sarcoma, malignant glioma, or melanoma.
 To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD).
 To evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of AGEN1884 in subjects with advanced or
metastatic solid tumors.

To describe the anti-tumor activity (efficacy) and toxicity (safety) of commercially available, targeted anti-cancer drugs used for treatment of patients with advanced solid tumors, multiple myeloma or B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma with a genomic variant known (i) to be a target of an FDA-approved anti-cancer drug or (ii) to predict sensitivity to an FDA-approved anti-cancer drug. Kim, Edward Sanghyun
I. To maintain a Childhood Cancer Registry for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer.

II. To utilize clinical and biological data to help determine eligibility or stratification, based on childhood cancer disease classification schemas, for potential enrollment of research subjects onto Children's Oncology Group (COG) therapeutic clinical trials.

III. To develop a well annotated childhood cancer biobank for current and future research through the collection of biospe
Kaplan, Joel Adam
The purpose of this study is to classify patients with renal tumors by histological categorization, surgicopathological stage, presence of metastases, age at diagnosis, tumor weight and loss of heterozygosity for chromosomes 1p and 16q, to thereby define eligibility for a series of therapeutic studies. Kaplan, Joel Adam
To compare PFS using RECIST 1.1 as assessed by BICR and OS in PD-L1
positive subjects and all subjects between the following treatment comparisons:(a) Pembrolizumab + chemotherapy versus chemotherapy; (b) Pembrolizumab versus chemotherapy
