Photodynamic Therapy With Porfimer Sodium in Treating Patients With Refractory Brain Tumors

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the maximum tolerated dose of benzoporphyrin monoacid ring A in patients with refractory brain tumors undergoing cavitary photoillumination photodynamic therapy. - Determine the effect of this regimen on neurotoxicity, clinical state, imaging changes, and survival of these patients. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study. Patients are stratified ...

Phase

Study of Individuals and Families at High Risk for Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - Identify individuals at high risk of cancer, especially due to personal or family medical history. - Evaluate and define clinical spectrum of disease in syndromes predisposing to cancer. - Quantify risks of tumors in family members. - Map, clone, and determine function of tumor susceptibility genes. - Identify ...

Phase N/A

Natural History of Patients With Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors

Background: This protocol is designed to evaluate patients with tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) who appear to be probable candidates for future protocol entry or have disease manifestations that are of unique scientific interest, importance, and/or educational value. Objective: To evaluate patients with tumors of the central nervous ...

Phase N/A

Screening Patients With Central Nervous System Tumors for Participation in National Cancer Institute Clinical Trials

OBJECTIVES: - Evaluate patients with central nervous system tumors for eligibility in NCI primary clinical research protocols. OUTLINE: Patients undergo various diagnostic procedures and clinical testing to determine eligibility for participation in NCI CNS tumor primary clinical research protocols. Patients undergo imaging scans; laboratory testing of blood, cerebrospinal fluid, bone ...

Phase N/A

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. ...

Phase

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

Erlotinib in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Progressive Glioblastoma Multiforme

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the response rate of patients with recurrent or progressive glioblastoma multiforme treated with erlotinib. - Determine the progression-free and overall survival of patients treated with this drug. OUTLINE: Patients receive oral erlotinib daily. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase

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 ...
