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

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Sodium Thiosulfate in Preventing Low Platelet Count While Treating Patients With Malignant Brain Tumors

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the effect of delayed administration of sodium thiosulfate on the rates of platelet toxicity (i.e. platelet count less than 20,000), in subjects with high-grade glioma undergoing treatment with carboplatin, cyclophosphamide and etoposide/etoposide phosphate. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Assess tumor response in subjects with high-grade glioma undergoing treatment ...

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 ...

Carboplatin Melphalan Etoposide Phosphate Mannitol and Sodium Thiosulfate in Treating Patients With Previously Treated Brain Tumors

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate toxicity and estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of melphalan (intra-arterially [i.a.]) administered in conjunction with carboplatin (i.a.) and etoposide phosphate (intravenously [i.v.]) undergoing BBBD, in subjects with anaplastic oligodendroglioma or oligoastrocytoma. (Phase I) II. To examine the efficacy (one year progression free survival [1YPFS]) ...

Phase

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, ...

Phase

Topotecan in Treating Patients With Refractory or Progressive Primary Malignant Brain Tumors

OBJECTIVES: - Evaluate the safety and effectiveness of convection enhanced delivery (intracerebral clysis [ICC]) therapy comprising topotecan hydrochloride in patients with refractory or progressive primary malignant brain tumors. - Apply advanced MRI as a noninvasive means of optimizing treatment parameters and determining volume of drug distribution with convection enhanced delivery. ...

Phase

AQ4N in Combination With Radiotherapy and Temozolomide in Subjects With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma Multiforme

Phase 1b of the study, will evaluate the safety and tolerability of AQ4N treatment at three different dose levels. Phase 2a of the study, will further evaluate the safety, tolerability, and in addition efficacy of AQ4N treatment at a tolerated dose selected from Phase 1b.

Phase

The Role of the Vagus Nerve in Tumor-to-Brain Communication in Lung Cancer Patients

the aim of this study is to measure brain metabolism in patients with lung cancer.FDG uptake in the brain in patients with malignant tumors will be compared to the amount of tracer activity found in patients who have benign pulmonary process. if differences between the brain uptake of FDG in ...
