RESULTS

Found (219) clinical trials

You are being asked to take part in this study because you have a type of brain tumor called a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) and you have completed the first part of your treatment with radiation combined with the chemotherapy drug temozolomide (TMZ). The standard treatment after completing radiation is to ...

Phase N/A

People with Glioblastoma are asked to participate in a research study being conducted by Northshore University Hospital.

Phase N/A

Laser Ablation of Abnormal Neurological Tissue Using Robotic NeuroBlate System

The NeuroBlate System (NBS) is a minimally invasive robotic laser thermotherapy tool that is being manufactured by Monteris Medical. Since it received FDA clearance in May 2009, the NBS has been used in over 1300 procedures conducted at approximately 56 leading institutions across United States. This is a prospective, multi-center ...

Executive and Socio-cognitive Functions in Survivors of Primary Brain Tumor: Impact on Patients' Quality of Life

First, the investigators will calculate the prevalence of cognitive and socio-cognitive deficits, by comparing the performances of patients (children/adolescents and adults) to normative data available for each tasks and to performances of healthy controls matched on socio-demographic criteria. Second, the investigators will compare the neuropsychological scores for cognitive and socio-cognitive ...

Phase N/A

Auto Transplant for High Risk or Relapsed Solid or CNS Tumors

This is a standard of care treatment guideline for high risk or relapsed solid tumors or CNS tumors consisting of a busulfan, melphalan, thiotepa conditioning (for solid tumors) or carboplatin and thiotepa conditioning (for CNS tumors) followed by an autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplant. For solid tumors, if appropriate, ...

[18F]Dabrafenib Molecular Imaging in Melanoma Brain Metastasis

Rationale: Dabrafenib is an oral protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor which specifically targets mutated BRAF protein. It is used in the treatment of metastatic melanoma with evidence of a BRAF V600 mutation in genomic material. However, in this group of patients often a heterogenic response to treatment is seen. Heterogeneity in ...

Phase N/A

Biological Characterisation of High Risk CHildhood Cancer in Children Adolescents and Young Adults (MICCHADO)

To identify and characterise: meaningful molecular genetic alterations, meaningful immunological features of high risk childhood, adolescents and young adult cancers, at diagnosis, during patient treatment and follow-up (time dimension).

Phase N/A

KEYS to Succeed: Cognitive and Academic Intervention Program for Children and Adolescents Surviving Cancer

Paediatric brain tumour survivors who receive cranial spinal radiation have learning problems, particularly in mathematics and working memory. Working memory is often described as a "mental workspace" where relevant information is held in mind and processed. Working memory is important in mathematics for holding in mind relevant information and carrying ...

NovoTTF Treatment Signatures in Glioblastoma Patients at Autopsy

RATIONALE Optune therapy with tumor treatment fields (TTFields) has recently been FDA approved for the treatment of newly diagnosed glioblastoma due to a recent clinical trial that showed improvement in progression free survival and overall survival compared to standard therapy. (1) TTFields also have a role in the recurrent glioblastoma ...

Phase N/A

Magnetic Resonance (MR) Imaging to Determine High Risk Areas in Patients With Malignant Gliomas and to Design Potential Radiation Plans and to Examine Metabolite Changes in Gliomas and Other Solid Tumors

The purpose of this study is to assess the ability of these advanced MRI scans in predicting areas within a malignant glioma (brain tumor) that are at a high risk of recurring. If these advanced MRI scans are able to identify the cancerous part of the tumor, then radiation therapy ...
