Tryptophan Metabolism in Human Brain Tumors

If you agree to take part in this research study, you will be asked to have: A PET scan, 2. brief clinical questionnaires, and 3. biochemical studies of blood and tumor tissue. You will also have a second PET scan later, 2-3 months after the start of NovoTTF therapy, to ...

Phase N/A

Collection of Blood and Urine Samples in Patients Receiving Radiation Therapy for Glioblastoma Multiforme

BACKGROUND Preliminary data generated from our pilot protocol 02-C-0064 suggests that the urinary VEGF and MMP level at the one month follow-up time point compared to the last on-treatment time point collection may be predictive of tumor recurrence at one year (l). Note that this preliminary study included patients with ...

Phase N/A

Application of Proteome Profiler Antibody Arrays to Find Angiogenetic Predictors in Glioma Paitents.

Pre-chemoradiation and post-chemoradiation peripheral blood will be obtained to see if there are some angiogenesis biomarker available for prediction of bevacizumab response later.

Phase N/A

Advanced Perfusion MRI of Treatment Response and Progression in Glioblastoma

Investigators will compare the novel to the standard DSC-PWI methods in twenty five GBM patients to determine whether novel method improves image quality in tumor regions. We will also compare accuracy of pseudoprogression (PsP) vs. early progressive disease (ePD) determinations by the two techniques. If successful, the project will culminate ...

Phase N/A

Delayed 18F-FDG PET/CT in Improving Visualization of Brain Tumors in Patients With Glioblastoma

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To improve the visualization/delineation of glioblastoma lesions using delayed 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging. OUTLINE Patients receive fludeoxyglucose F-18 intravenously (IV). Patients then undergo a standard of care PET/CT scan at 60 minutes and a second PET/CT scan at 240 minutes after injection. Note Standard Uptake Value (SUV) is ...

Phase N/A

Coping With Glioblastoma: A Study of Communication Between Physicians Patients and Caregivers

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the way physicians communicate with brain tumor patients. This study will look at how oncologists provide information about brain tumors, brain scan results, and treatment options. This study will look at how oncologists provide information about brain tumors, brain scan ...

Phase N/A

Integrative Analysis of Human Glioblastoma Multiforme

The investigators will analyzed proteomes of paired normal brain tissues and GBM, sequenced transcriptomes, perform whole exome sequencing, and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array profiling for triplets, each comprising normal brain tissue, primary GBM carcinoma, and its synchronous matched metastasis, as well as analyzed genomics of GBM characterized previously by ...

Phase N/A

NovoTTF Treatment Signatures in Glioblastoma Patients at Autopsy

RATIONALE Optune therapy with tumor treatment fields (TTFields) has recently been FDA approved for the treatment of newly diagnosed glioblastoma due to a recent clinical trial that showed improvement in progression free survival and overall survival compared to standard therapy. (1) TTFields also have a role in the recurrent glioblastoma ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Evaluating the Expression Levels of MicroRNA-10b in Patients With Gliomas

MicroRNAs (miRNA) are molecular biomarkers that post-transcriptionally control target genes. Deregulated miRNA expression has been observed in diverse cancers. In high grade gliomas, known as glioblastomas, the investigators have identified an oncogenic miRNA, miRNA-10b (mir-10b) that is expressed at higher levels in glioblastomas than in normal brain tissue. This study ...
