NovoTTF-200A Device in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed High Risk Oligodendroglioma

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To describe the safety and tolerability of the TTFields treatment in patients with newly diagnosed high risk oligodendroglioma following standard of care treatment. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To estimate the proportion of patients who tolerated 75% of treatment goal at months 6, 12, 24. II. To estimate the ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Development of MR Spectroscopy and Imaging in Brain Cancers

2-hydroxyglutarate (2HG) imaging will identify glioma, tumor progression and response to therapy noninvasively at an earlier time point than currently detectable with standard MR imaging. This utility of 2HG can be used for improving the patient care in a more effective manner when the 2HG imaging is incorporated in regular ...

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

Immunophenotyping From Blood of Patients With Malignant Gliomas

Patients with malignant glioma generally have a bad prognosis. To improve patients' situation new therapy options as well as new possibilities to determine prognosis and prediction more precisely are needed. One approach is the targeted activation of the immune system to recognize and eliminate tumor cells. Due to cerebral tumors ...

Children's and Adolescents' Medulloblastoma Molecular Subgroups in China

Studies discovered that medulloblastoma is a group of tumors with different pathogenesis through different pathways, and majorly can be divided into four molecular subgroups. Moreover, multicenter retrospective studies from US, Canada and European Countries revealed that the molecular subgroup of medulloblastoma becomes an independent correlated risk factor for the patient ...

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 ...

Astrocytoma / Desmoplastic Gamliogliomes (DIA / DIG) - Study of the French Cohort of the Last 20 Years : Clinical Anatomopathological Molecular and Radiological Charactersics

Astrocytomas / infantile desmoplastic gangliogliomas (DIA / DIG) are rare brain tumors usually affecting infants. They represent about 0.5% of all pediatric brain tumors. DIA / DIG occurs mainly in the first 2 years of life, with a sex ratio M / F of 1.7 to 1. From a histological ...

Prospective Cohort Study Depending on the Use of Palliative Care for Advanced Stage of Cancer Patients

Patients with advanced cancer report physical, emotional, social and economic problems that may be due to the cancer itself or its treatment. Previous studies have shown the benefit of early palliative care in oncology. However, many Korean patients tend to start palliative care late even in general hospital. Because of ...

Phase N/A

FET-PET and Multiparametric MRI for High-grade Glioma Patients Undergoing Radiotherapy

Glioblastoma is the most common malignant brain tumor in adults. The primary treatment consists of maximal tumor removal followed by radiotherapy (RT) with concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide. Tumor recurrence after chemoradiotherapy has previously been shown to be predominantly within or at the margin of the irradiated volume, but distant failure ...

Phase N/A

Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy (LITT) for the Treatment of Pediatric Central Nervous System Tumors

Pediatric brain tumors have a variety of surgical options depending on the location and type of tumor. Complete or near complete surgical removal of pediatric brain tumors usually results in the best chance of survival or long-term control of the tumor. Surgical resection through an open craniotomy is the most ...
