Gene-expression Profiles in CNS-metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Brain metastases occur in 30-50% of lung adenocarcinoma (LAC) patients and confer a worse prognosis and quality of life. A better selection of in-risk patients through a more accurate biomarker could improve the benefit of prophylactic therapies. The aim of this prospective study was to determine a gene-expression profile of ...

Phase N/A

Radiation Therapy With or Without Temozolomide in Treating Women With Brain Metastases and Breast Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare the objective response rate at 6 weeks in women with brain metastases secondary to breast cancer treated with radiotherapy with vs without temozolomide. Secondary - Evaluate the tolerability. - Compare the duration of response. - Compare local progression-free survival. - Compare overall survival. OUTLINE: This is ...

Phase

Cilengitide and Whole-Brain Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Brain Metastases From Lung Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - Primary - To assess the safety and tolerability of daily cilengitide by determining its dose-limiting toxicity and maximum-tolerated dose when combined with concomitant fractionated whole-brain radiation therapy in patients with brain metastases from lung cancer. - Secondary - To collect evidence of the best overall response rate, overall ...

Phase

Icotinib With Whole Brain Radiation Therapy in NSCLC Patients With Brain Metastases

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the malignant tumors with the highest incidence of brain metastases. Patients with multiple brain metastasis showed poor prognosis and displayed an untreated median survival of only 3-6 months, and most patients died due to the progression of brain metastases. This study is ...

Phase

Photodynamic Therapy With Porfimer Sodium in Treating Patients With Refractory Brain Tumors

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the maximum tolerated dose of benzoporphyrin monoacid ring A in patients with refractory brain tumors undergoing cavitary photoillumination photodynamic therapy. - Determine the effect of this regimen on neurotoxicity, clinical state, imaging changes, and survival of these patients. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study. Patients are stratified ...

Phase

Phase I Compare OS in Post-CyberKnife Radiosurgery Tx in 1-3 VS 4 or More Brain Metastases

This is registry-based cohort study of patients with brain metastases treated at Stanford University Medical Center (SUMC) with CyberKnife radiosurgery (CK RS). It has two components: (1) a retrospective follow-up of patients treated since 2006, and (2) the accrual of a new cohort of patients treated over a 5-year period ...

Phase

Study of Patients With Cancer or Precancerous Conditions

OBJECTIVES: - To follow and evaluate patients, longitudinally with cancer or precancerous conditions referred to the NIH Clinical Center Pediatric Oncology Branch who present with disease manifestations that lend themselves to clinical evaluation and are of unique scientific importance. - To allow, when clinically indicated, patients to receive standard care ...

Phase N/A

Collecting and Storing Information From Patients With Cancer or Other Chronic Disease Who Have Undergone Neurobehavioral Assessments on Another Clinical Trial

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the neurobehavioral function of patients with chronic illness by analyzing stored data collected from IRB-approved protocols comprising retrospective data collected on protocols that are now closed and prospective data from current and future protocols. Secondary - Determine the relationship between neurobehavioral functioning and medical, neuroimaging, neurologic, ...

Phase N/A

External-Beam Radiation Therapy With or Without Indinavir and Ritonavir in Treating Patients With Brain Metastases

OBJECTIVES: - Compare the efficacy, in terms of time to treatment failure at CNS level and 4-months treatment failure rate, in patients with brain metastases treated with external-beam radiotherapy in combination with indinavir sulfate and ritonavir versus external-beam radiotherapy alone. - Prospectively investigate the efficacy of a potentially antiangiogenic agent, ...
