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 ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase

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

Correlation Between SV2A Expression in Tumour Tissue and Efficacy of Levetiracetam in Glioma Patients With Epilepsy

Levetiracetam is a relatively novel anti-epileptic drug (AED), which has proven to be effective and well tolerated in many glioma patients with otherwise pharmacoresistant epilepsy. Moreover, levetiracetam has neither enzyme-inducing nor enzyme-inhibiting properties, which makes the drug particularly attractive for brain tumour patients, as they frequently receive chemotherapy and/or corticosteroids. ...

Phase

Radiation Therapy Temozolomide Tamoxifen and Carboplatin in Treating Patients With Malignant Gliomas

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the progression-free and overall survival of patients with supratentorial malignant gliomas (WHO grade III or IV) receiving radiotherapy with concurrent and adjuvant temozolomide, tamoxifen citrate, and carboplatin. - Determine the acute and delayed treatment-related toxicities in these patients. - Determine tumor response in patients with postoperative measurable ...

Phase

A Phase II Study Of Gliadel Concomitant Temozolomide And Radiation Followed By Dose Dense Therapy With Temozolomide Plus Bevacizumab For Newly Diagnosed Malignant High Grade Glioma

To determine the safety and efficacy of surgical resection with Gliadel® 3.85% wafer implantation, followed by concomitant limited field radiation therapy and temozolomide, followed by dose dense temozolomide and bevacizumab in subjects undergoing initial surgery for newly-diagnosed high grade glioma.
