An Investigation of Pituitary Tumors and Related Hypothalmic Disorders

There are a variety of tumors affecting the pituitary gland; The gene(s) involved in the pathogenesis of these tumors are largely not known; their possible association with other developmental defects or inheritance pattern(s) has not been investigated. The present study serves as a (i) screening/training, and, (ii) a research protocol. ...

Phase N/A

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

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

Radiolabeled Octreotide in Treating Children With Advanced or Refractory Solid Tumors

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the maximum tolerated dose of yttrium Y 90-DOTA-tyr3-octreotide in children with advanced or refractory somatostatin receptor-positive tumors. - Determine the short-term and long-term safety and the serious adverse-event profiles of this drug in these patients. - Determine any potential antitumor effect of this drug in these patients. ...

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

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 ...

Phase

Rare Disease Patient Registry & Natural History Study - Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford

CoRDS collects contact, sociodemographic and health information about participants. This information is entered into CoRDS and linked to a unique coded identifier. Below are some examples of information requested on the Questionnaire that will be entered into CoRDS: - Contact information: Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Email Address - Sociodemographic ...

Phase N/A

Presurgical Language Mapping With fMRI: Comparison of BOLD and fASL Techniques

One of the aim of the neurosurgical treatment of brain tumor is to offer the maximal resection with the minimal neurological risk. The presurgical mapping of eloquent areas with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is helpful to plan the surgery. BOLD fMRI is now the gold standard to map language ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of PET and Proton MRS Imaging to Evaluate Pediatric Brain Tumor Activity

Background: - Children with brain tumors are generally followed for response or progression by imaging studies, such as CT or MRI. - While these imaging studies help delineate the anatomical location and extent of a tumor within the CNS, they give no information regarding the biologic or metabolic activity of ...
