ALA-induced PpIX Fluorescence During Brain Tumor Resection

Removing a tumor from a patients brain is hard to do because, very often, brain tumors do not have boundaries that are easy for the patients surgeon to find. In many cases, the surgeon can't tell exactly where the tumor begins or ends. The surgeon usually can remove most of ...

Treatment Effects Inclusive Cognitive Impact and Possibilities to Individually Adjusted Treatment in Patients With Intracranial Tumors With Clinical Neuropsychological and Imaging Parameters

The main purposes with this trial is to investigate the potential of MRI with diffusion and blood volume, flow in brain to diagnose and to measure treatment effects in patients with intracranial tumors, especially gliomas and metastases in a prospective trial, to evaluate the possibilities to individually adjusted treatment in ...

Phase N/A

MRI and Diffusion Imaging of Eloquent Brain Areas to Optimize Brain Tumor Resection Planning

Many patients with brain tumors require surgery. Some patients have brain tumors near important parts of the brain. These brain areas have roles in language or motor function. Avoiding these motor and language areas helps to prevent neurological deficits. The investigators are studying the parts of the brain involved in ...

Phase N/A

A Secondary Study Evaluating Aqueduct's Smart External Drain (SED)

This clinical trial will evaluate Aqueduct's Smart External Drain (SED) upon implementation of ventriculostomy or lumbar drain placement for temporary CSF external management in a hospital setting. Subjects will remain on study from the time of SED application through discharge of the external drain or switch to standard of care ...

Phase N/A

Sorafenib Tosylate Valproic Acid and Sildenafil Citrate in Treating Patients With Recurrent High-Grade Glioma

The combination of sorafenib, valproic acid, and sildenafil may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of recurrent high-grade glioma in the clinic. The combination of sorafenib and valproic acid is predicated on the basis that sorafenib activity is enhanced by HDAC inhibition. The addition of sildenafil is based on its ...

18F-DOPA-PET in Planning Surgery in Patients With Gliomas

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Accurately define a standardized 18F-DOPA PET tumor/normal tissue (T/N) threshold to delineate high grade gliomas (HGG) from low grade gliomas (LGG). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine correlation between 18F-DOPA PET activity, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast enhancement and high- or low-grade glioma biopsies. II. Compare grade from maximum ...

Phase N/A

IDH1 Peptide Vaccine for Recurrent Grade II Glioma

After informed consent has been signed, subjects will undergo standard of care vaccination with 0.5 mL of Td (tetanus and diphtheria toxoids adsorbed) intramuscularly into the deltoid muscle to ensure adequate immunity to the tetanus antigen. Eligible subjects will undergo a 1-2 hour leukapheresis (to pull off white blood cells) ...

Whole Brain Radiation Therapy Alone vs. Radiosurgery for SCLC Patients With 1-10 Brain Metastases

Scientific Background: Patients suffering from BM from SCLC have a poor prognosis with a median survival ranging between 2-14 months. Treatment options for BM in SCLC are usually limited to WBRT, steroids or palliative chemotherapy. SCLC patients demonstrate an exception in the treatment of BM, because treatment options for a ...

Phase

Study of Lenalidomide With Vorinostat in Pediatric Patients With High Grade or Progressive CNS Tumors

Brain tumors are the second most common cause of cancer in pediatrics and the leading cause of cancer death in children. For children with relapsed, refractory, or recurrent brain tumors, new agents in new combinations are needed. This study is a phase I study designed to provide an objective observation ...

Phase

Monitoring MRI Changes Before and During Radiotherapy Treatment of Brain Tumors

This study aims to evaluate anatomical and functional changes during RT for patients receiving fractionated RT for brain tumors. Anatomical changes during RT will be registered and analyzed and if needed the radiotherapy plan will be modified for the individual patient. This means that the "to be irradiated volume" will ...
