Study of Nifurtimox to Treat Refractory or Relapsed Neuroblastoma or Medulloblastoma

This study is being done to test the effect of a drug, nifurtimox, against neuroblastoma and medulloblastoma in children. Nifurtimox is a drug that has been used in South America for many years to treat a parasitic disease known as Chagas Disease. It is not approved by the Food and ...

A Randomized Trial of The Effectiveness of Aromatherapy on Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting in Children With Cancer

Nausea and vomiting remain two of the most distressing symptoms to children being treated for cancer. Nausea and vomiting are directly associated with the administration of chemotherapy, due to effects of the chemotherapy on the gastrointestinal mucosa, and certain chemotherapeutic agents, such as cisplatin, are known to be particularly emetogenic. ...

Phase N/A

Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Guided Laser Induced Thermal Therapy for Treatment of Metastatic Brain Tumors

The Visualase Thermal Therapy System is FDA-cleared for thermal destruction of soft tissue in neurosurgery under MRI guidance. The device combines 3 previously FDA-cleared devices: the Visualase Cooled Laser Application System, which delivers the laser (energy) to the tumor tissue; the PhoTex , Diode Laser Series, which is the laser ...

Phase

Evaluation of the Efficacy and Safety of [18F]-ML-10 as a PET Imaging Radiotracer in Early Detection of Response of Brain Metastases of Solid Tumors to Radiation Therapy.

Early assessment of the efficacy of anti-cancer therapy is highly desirable and an unmet need in clinical oncology. Currently, treatment efficacy is mostly measured by following tumor size by anatomical imaging (CT scan or MRI). However, changes in tumor size may be observed only after several weeks to several months ...

Phase

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

A Clinical and Molecular Risk-Directed Therapy for Newly Diagnosed Medulloblastoma

Primary Objectives: - To estimate the progression free survival distribution of WNT-medulloblastoma patients treated on Stratum W1 with reduced-dose craniospinal irradiation and reduced-dose cyclophosphamide. - To estimate progression-free survival distribution of Non-WNT Non-SHH medulloblastoma patients treated on Stratum N1 with reduced dose cyclophosphamide. - To evaluate the effect of an ...

NovoTTF-100A With Bevacizumab (Avastin) in Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma

This will be an open label Phase II trial in adults with recurrent glioblastoma (GBM). The NovoTTF-100A treatment and Bevacizumab will be administered on an outpatient basis; NovoTTF-100A treatment will be initiated in the outpatient clinic. PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the efficacy of the combination of bevacizumab and NovoTTF-100A ...

Optune(NOVOTTF-100A)+ Bevacizumab+ Hypofractionated Stereotactic Irradiation Bevacizumab-Naive Recurrent Glioblastoma (GCC 1344)

The combination of Optune(NovoTTF) with the active regimen of bevacizumab and hypofractionated stereotactic radiotherapy bases the addition of an effective new treatment in the setting of a safe regimen with favorable survival reports. To date, no clinical data are available on the interaction of concomitant tumor treating fields with radiation ...

Phase N/A

Dose-Escalation Study of TPI 287 + Avastin Followed by Randomized Study of the Same Versus Avastin for Glioblastoma

This multi-center trial is a phase 1/2 study that will be conducted in two sequential phases, phase 1 and phase 2. Phase 1 of the trial is a dose-escalation study of the safety, tolerability (MTD), and efficacy of TPI 287 in combination with bevacizumab in subjects who have GBM that ...

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 ...
