Radiolabeled Octreotide in Treating Children With Advanced or Refractory Solid Tumors

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the maximum tolerated dose of yttrium Y 90-DOTA-tyr3-octreotide in children with advanced or refractory somatostatin receptor-positive tumors. - Determine the short-term and long-term safety and the serious adverse-event profiles of this drug in these patients. - Determine any potential antitumor effect of this drug in these patients. ...

Screening Individuals and Families at High Risk for Hematologic Cancers

OBJECTIVES: - Ascertain individuals at high risk for hematologic malignancy because of personal or family medical history. - Evaluate and define the clinical spectrum and natural history of disease in syndromes predisposing these individuals and families to hematologic cancer. - Evaluate the potential precursor states of malignancy in families at ...

Phase N/A

INC280 Combined With Bevacizumab in Patients With Glioblastoma Multiforme

Despite recent advances, glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) remains an incurable malignancy with a short expected survival. c-MET signalling promotes invasive growth and has been described in various cancers. INC280 is a highly potent and selective c-MET inhibitor which also penetrates the blood-brain barrier. In this open-label, multicenter Phase 1b study, investigators ...

Neo-adjuvant Evaluation of Glioma Lysate Vaccines in WHO Grade II Glioma

Low-grade gliomas (LGG), the most common of which are pilocytic astrocytomas, diffuse astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas, and mixed oligo-astrocytomas are a diverse family of central nervous system (CNS) neoplasms that occur in children and adults. Based on data from the American Cancer Society and Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States ...

Presurgical Language Mapping With fMRI: Comparison of BOLD and fASL Techniques

One of the aim of the neurosurgical treatment of brain tumor is to offer the maximal resection with the minimal neurological risk. The presurgical mapping of eloquent areas with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is helpful to plan the surgery. BOLD fMRI is now the gold standard to map language ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of PET and Proton MRS Imaging to Evaluate Pediatric Brain Tumor Activity

Background: - Children with brain tumors are generally followed for response or progression by imaging studies, such as CT or MRI. - While these imaging studies help delineate the anatomical location and extent of a tumor within the CNS, they give no information regarding the biologic or metabolic activity of ...

Phase N/A

Collection of Blood and Urine Samples in Patients Receiving Radiation Therapy for Glioblastoma Multiforme

BACKGROUND - Preliminary data generated from our pilot protocol 02-C-0064 suggests that the urinary VEGF and MMP level at the one month follow-up time point compared to the last on-treatment time point collection may be predictive of tumor recurrence at one year (l). - Note that this preliminary study included ...

Phase N/A

Radiolabeled Monoclonal Antibody Therapy in Treating Patients With Refractory Recurrent or Advanced CNS or Leptomeningeal Cancer

The purpose of this study is to find a safe dose of a new medicine called antibody 8H9. Antibodies are made by the body to fight infections and in some cases, to fight tumors. The antibody 8H9 is made by mice and can attack many kinds of tumors. 8H9 antibody ...

Safety Study of Cetuximab Radiotherapy and Temozolomide in Primary Glioblastoma Multiforme(GERT)

GERT is a one-armed single-center phase I/II trial. In a first step, dose-escalation of TMZ from 50 mg/m2 to 75mg/m2 together with radiotherapy and cetuximab will be performed. Should safety be proven, the phase II trial will be initiated with the standard dose of 75mg/m2 of TMZ. Cetuximab will be ...

Phase

Imaging Study in Patients With Cancer of the Head & Neck Lung Renal Cell Brain Lymphoma and Neuroendocrine Tumours

The proposed clinical trial will be a Phase I/II imaging, open label, single site study. In Phase I, one 18F-FAZA PET scan will be conducted in patients with known squamous cell carcinoma of the Head & Neck, SCLC, NSCLC, lymphoma, GGM, neuroendocrine tumours or renal cell carcinoma. In Phase II, ...
