Avelumab With Hypofractionated Radiation Therapy in Adults With Isocitrate Dehydrogenase (IDH) Mutant Glioblastoma

The active pharmaceutical ingredient in Avelumab (MSB0010718C) is a fully human antibody of the immunoglobulin gamma-1 (IgG1) isotype that specifically targets and blocks the Programmed death-ligand 1(PD-L1) for Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1). Avelumab binds PD-L1 and blocks the interaction between PD-L1 and PD-1. This removes the suppressive effects ...

Phase

INdividualized Screening Trial of Innovative Glioblastoma Therapy (INSIGhT)

This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the study drug works in treating a specific disease. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied. In this research study, the investigators are looking ...

A Study of Abemaciclib in Recurrent Glioblastoma

This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific disease. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied. The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has ...

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

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

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

Tumor Tissue Blood Samples and Family History in Predicting Tumor Development and Response to Treatment in Young Patients With Low-Grade Glioma

OBJECTIVES: - To develop a better understanding of why low-grade glioma tumors develop in children and adolescents. - To study genetic profiles that may predict response to treatment and provide clues to how these tumors developed initially using tumor and blood samples from these patients. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter ...

Phase N/A

Study of Stored Tumor Samples in Young Patients With Brain Tumors

The overall objective of this non-therapeutic protocol is to identify molecular abnormalities within prospectively treated pediatric CNS develop xenograft and in vitro models derived from Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumors (ATRT), Choroid Plexus Carcinomas (CPC), Ependymoma and high-grade gliomas. The investigators will characterize the genome-wide mutation, expression and epigenetic signatures of ...

Phase N/A

Multidrug Resistance Proteins in Patients Enrolled in Clinical Trials Outside of the National Cancer Institute Center for Cancer Research

OBJECTIVES: - Determine expression of MDR-1 gene/P-glycoprotein and related drug resistance proteins in tumor tissue samples from patients enrolled in clinical trials outside of the National Cancer Institute Center for Cancer Research. OUTLINE: Tumor tissue or blood samples that have been previously collected from patients are analyzed for P-glycoprotein and ...
