A Study of the Effectiveness of a Local Injection of Chemotherapy for Retinoblastoma

The management of retinoblastoma includes systemic chemotherapy (carboplatin, etoposide, and vincristine), thermotherapy, cryotherapy (freezing treatment), laser photocoagulation, plaque radiotherapy, external beam radiotherapy, and enucleation. The treatment is tailored to each individual case. Over the past 15 years, intravenous chemotherapy has risen as the most popular conservative (eye-saving) method for retinoblastoma ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Natural History Study of Patients With Neurofibromatosis Type I

BACKGROUND: Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant, progressive genetic disorder characterized by diverse clinical manifestations. Patients with NF1 have an increased risk of developing tumors of the central and peripheral nervous system including plexiform neurofibromas (PN), dermal neurofibromas, optic pathway tumors, brain tumors, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors ...

Phase N/A

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

Identification of Genomic Changes in Families Having Multiple Members With Tumors

Genomic changes leading to the formation of brain tumors are slowly being discovered. Despite advances in genomic technology, much analysis is hindered by the lack of control samples that could better delineate genomic alterations leading to disease. The ideal genomic control would be the genetic material of the parents of ...

Phase N/A

Identification of Clinically Occult Glioma Cells and Characterization of Glioma Behavior Through Machine Learning Analysis of Advanced Imaging Technology

Gliomas are the most common primary brain tumors in adults; most are high-grade and have a high level of mortality. The standard treatment is to kill or remove the cancer cells. Of course, this can only work if the surgeon or radiologist can find these cells. Unfortunately, there are inevitably ...

Phase N/A

Establishment of a Brain and Spinal Tumor Tissue Bank

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and lethal primary Brain and Spinal Tumor in adults. It is nearly uniformly fatal, with a median survival of approximately one year, despite modern treatment modalities. Efforts to understand why some patients live longer or shorter than the average may provide insights into ...

Phase N/A

Investigation Into the Differentiation of Tumour and Healthy Brain Tissue Using Multi-exponential T2 Components

Existing methods of contouring tumours for radiation therapy involve manual interpretations of qualitative diagnostic images. These methods, being qualitative, do not offer a consistent and reproducible platform for contouring, making it difficult to evaluate the effects of contouring choices on treatment outcome. T2 component analysis in MRI has the potential ...
