Biography

There are general principles of cancer care that have withstood the test of time. However, scientific and technologic advances are being made rapidly. As an oncologist, I always remember that a patient is at the end of every stethoscope, robot, sequencing machine and so on.

I chose this field because it is most interdisciplinary and dynamic – plus, I work with a team of outstanding colleagues. I have a special interest in what was once called tumor immunology, now referred to as immuno-oncology.

Conditions I Treat

- Melanoma
- Prostate cancer
- Urinary cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Penile cancer
- Sarcomas
- Rare cancers such as Merkel cell carcinoma and Kaposi's sarcoma

Clinical Trials

A Randomized Phase 3 Comparison of IMO-2125 With Ipilimumab Versus Ipilimumab Alone in Subjects With Anti-PD-1 Refractory Melanoma (ILLUMINATE-301),

Lead Researcher: Deepak Madhao Sahasrabudhe MD

A Phase 3 global, multi-center, open-label comparison of ipilimumab with and without intratumoral IMO-2125 in subjects with advanced melanoma who had confirmed disease progression while on nivolumab or pembrolizumab

Adjuvant Therapy With Pembrolizumab Versus Placebo in Resected High-risk Stage II Melanoma: A Randomized, Double-blind Phase 3 Study (KEYNOTE-716),Adjuvant Therapy With Pembrolizumab Versus Placebo in Resected High-risk Stage II Melanoma: A Randomized, Double-blind Phase 3 Study (KEYNOTE-716),Adjuvant Therapy With Pembrolizumab Versus Placebo in Resected High-risk Stage II Melanoma: A Randomized, Double-blind Phase 3 Study (KEYNOTE-716)

Lead Researcher: Deepak Madhao Sahasrabudhe MD

Pembrolizumab is an antibody that blocks a protective mechanism of cancer cells and thereby allows the immune system to destroy them. This study will evaluate pembrolizumab compared to placebo in participants after the surgical removal of stage II melanoma. Participants in Part 1 will receive either pembrolizumab or placebo in a double-blind design for up to 17 cycles. Part 2 is an open-label design for participants who receive placebo in Part 1 or who stop treatment after receiving 17 cycles of pembrolizumab in Part 1. They may be eligible to receive up to 35 additional cycles of pembrolizumab in Part 2.

BMS: Pilot study of Neoadjuvant Dual checkpoint blockade with concurrent radiation in resectable soft tissue sarcoma

Lead Researcher: Deepak Madhao Sahasrabudhe MD

The main aim of immunotherapy is to enable patients' immune system to target cancer cells and destroy them. This study will treat patients with soft tissue sarcoma (cancer) with neoadjuvant nivolumab and ipilimumab, antibodies that can be used as immunotherapies. Patients will also receive concurrent radiation therapy. Following these treatments will be the surgical removal of the patent's soft tissue sarcoma.

CMEL-15088 EA6134: “A Randomized Phase III trial of Dabrafenib + Trametinib followed by Ipilimumab + Nivolumab at Progression vs. Ipilimumab + Nivolumab followed by Dabrafenib + Trametinib at Progression in Patients With Advanced BRAFV600 Mutant Melanoma”

Lead Researcher: Deepak Madhao Sahasrabudhe MD

The BRAF inhibitor component will include two drugs dabrafenib and trametinib that each have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of this patient population and have also been approved for use in combination due to superior effects relative to the single agent treatments. In addition, the study will involve the addition of the FDA approved agent nivolumab to the standard FDA approved ipilimumab immunotherapy in the hopes that it might further improve the good effects of the immunotherapy component of the treatment sequence.
