CNS and Extracranial Tumor Tissues CSF and Blood From Patients With Melanoma Brain Metastases

Among the different sites to which melanoma can spread, the Central Nervous System (CNS) has the highest chance of developing metastases. Prognosis for metastatic melanoma involving the CNS is worse than that of CNS metastases from other cancers. Therefore, it is felt that early identification of this condition, even before ...

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 the lesion. ...

Collection of Blood and Urine Samples in Patients Receiving Radiation Therapy for Glioblastoma Multiforme

BACKGROUND Preliminary data generated from our pilot protocol 02-C-0064 suggests that the urinary VEGF and MMP level at the one month follow-up time point compared to the last on-treatment time point collection may be predictive of tumor recurrence at one year (l). Note that this preliminary study included patients with ...
