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

Protocol for the Study and Treatment of Participants With Intraocular Retinoblastoma

Participants will be stratified into four main treatment groups, depending on whether retinoblastoma is present in one or both eyes and disease grouping [early or advanced, Reese-Ellsworth (R-E) group I-V, and International Classification A-E]. Additionally, participants will be invited to participate in exploratory research objectives that address cognitive and functional ...

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 ...

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 ...

Phase

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

Intra-arterial Chemotherapy for Children With Retinoblastoma

Retinoblastoma is a cancer of the eye that occurs exclusively in children. The treatment for retinoblastoma may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and local treatments to the eye such as freezing (cryotherapy) and local radiation (brachytherapy). In some cases, a child with retinoblastoma will have active cancer in a single remaining ...

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

A Phase I Study of Mebendazole for the Treatment of Pediatric Gliomas

This is a phase I/II study of mebendazole in combination with standard of care agents for pediatric patients with gliomas. Patients with low-grade gliomas will receive a regimen of mebendazole in combination with vincristine, carboplatin, and temozolomide. Patients with high-grade gliomas and diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas will receive a regimen ...

Phase

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) For Recurrent High Grade Gliomas

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a well-known treatment for other type of tumors; however it is an experimental treatment for brain tumors. There is much we do not know about the effectiveness of PDT in patients with brain tumors. The purpose of this study is to define the antitumor activity of ...
