Molecular-Guided Therapy for Childhood Cancer

The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility (ability to be done) of experimental technologies to determine a tumor's molecular makeup. This technology includes a genomic report based on DNA exomes and RNA sequencing that will be used to discover new ways to understand cancers and potentially predict ...

Phase N/A

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

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

Lapatinib Ditosylate Before Surgery in Treating Patients With Recurrent High-Grade Glioma

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To achieve an intratumoral lapatinib (lapatinib ditosylate) concentration of at least 1.5 uM in at least 70% of patients 3 hours after the last dose of pulsatile lapatinib. (Group A) II. To determine the pharmacodynamic (PD) effect of pulsatile lapatinib (at pulsatile maximum tolerated dose [MTD]) on ...

Phase N/A

Neuroplasticity-Based Cognitive Remediation for Pediatric Brain Tumor Survivors

Over 4,000 children are diagnosed with brain tumors in the U.S. each year and advances in treatment have led to significant increases in survival rates for these patients. However, as a result of the disease and treatment with surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, pediatric brain tumor patients show deficits in frontal ...

Phase N/A

Neurobehavioral Outcomes and Quality of Life in Pediatric Patients With Brain or Head/Neck Tumors Receiving Proton or Photon Radiotherapy

Background: Neurobehavioral functions and quality of life (QoL) are the important outcome measurements after radiotherapy in patients with brain tumors and even head/neck cancers. However, few studies have focused on neurobehavioral functions and QoL after anti-cancer treatment particularly brain radiotherapy for pediatric/adolescent patients with brain tumors. This study thus aims ...

Phase N/A

A Longitudinal Assessment of Frailty in Young Adult Survivors of Childhood Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: Evaluate the change in the proportion of young adult cancer survivors who are frail from baseline to a point five years later. Evaluate the association between frailty and worsening of chronic health conditions. Describe the association between demographic and treatment factors and risk for prevalent frailty. Estimate the ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Development of Cancer-Specific MRS Biomarkers in Malignant Gliomas

Malignant gliomas represent the majority of primary brain tumors in adults and are among the most intractable tumors. Cancers reprogram their metabolism to meet the needs of rapid cell growth. Alterations in metabolite abundance may serve as biomarkers of malignancy, and the capability to monitor the changes non-invasively would have ...

Phase N/A

Study Assessing the Feasibility of a Surgery and Chemotherapy-Only in Children With Wnt Positive Medulloblastoma

There will be 9 cycles of chemotherapy. There are two different kinds of cycles given. They are referred to as A and B. Cycle A lasts for 6 weeks and Cycle B lasts for 4 weeks. B cycles are given after the completion of two A cycles. Below are the ...
