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 ...


Collecting and Storing Blood and Brain Tumor Tissue Samples From Children With Brain Tumors

OBJECTIVES: I. Collect brain tumor tissue and an accompanying blood sample from pediatric patients with brain tumors treated at Children's Oncology Group institutions. II. Provide a repository for long-term storage of specimens from these patients. III. Make these specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of pediatric brain ...

Phase N/A

A clinical trial sponsored by National Cancer Institute (NCI) for a research study for the treatment of Optic Nerve Glioma, von Recklinghausen's Disease, Plexiform Neurofibroma, Nerve Sheath Tumors, neurofibroma

BACKGROUND Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant, progressive genetic disorder characterized by diverse clinical manifestations. Patients with NF1 have an increased risk of developing tumors of the central and peripheral nervous system including plexiform neurofibromas (PN), dermal neurofibromas, optic pathway tumors, brain tumors, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors ...

Phase N/A

Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study evaluating Carboplatin, Vincristine, Bevacizumab, Irinotecan, Mebendazole, Temozolomide for the treatment of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, Pleomorphic Xanthoastrocytoma, Astrocytoma, Optic Nerve Glioma, gliosarcoma, Glioblastoma Multiforme, Brainstem Glioma, Low Grade Glioma, Pilomyxoid Astrocytoma, DIPG

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 ...


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 aerobic training intervention, ...


Long-Term Follow-Up of Patients Who Have Participated in Children's Oncology Group Studies

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To develop a mechanism for tracking and retaining patients enrolled on Children's Oncology Group (COG) protocols. II. To maintain regular, lifetime contact with patients in order to obtain current identification and contact information, and self/parent-reported health status. III. To locate patients who are lost-to-follow-up for COG (or ...

Phase N/A

Methionine PET/CT Studies In Patients With Cancer

The study focuses on the following objectives: Primary objective: To estimate the success rate of Methionine (MET) for visualizing tumors at the time of diagnosis. The study hypothesizes that at least 70% of newly diagnosed tumors within each group will be studied and will be successfully visualized. Secondary objective: To ...


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 ...


High Risk Primitive Neuroectodermal (PNET) Brain Tumors in Childhood

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the combination of surgery, conventional chemotherapy, sequential high-dose chemotherapy with peripheral blood stem cell transplantation and reduced dose radiation therapy in high-risk PNET brain tumors.


Study of Vinorelbine and Cyclofosfamide Among Patients With Refractory Tumours or in Relapse

This is a phase II study to determine the antitumor activity of Vinorelbine and Cyclofosfamide association among patients with refractory tumours or in relapse with rhabdomyosarcomas and other soft tissue tumours, Ewing tumours, osteosarcomas, neuroblastomas or medulloblastomas.
