Use of a Tonometer to Identify Epileptogenic Lesions During Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery

Rationale: Refractory epilepsy, meaning epilepsy that no longer responds to medication, is a common neurosurgical indication in children. Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is the most common cause. Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a rare genetic disease causing epilepsy in over 90% of affected patients. This epilepsy can also become refractory …

Phase II Pediatric Study With Dabrafenib in Combination With Trametinib in Patients With HGG and LGG

The purpose of this study is to investigate the activity of dabrafenib in combination with trametinib in children and adolescent patients with BRAF V600 mutation positive low grade glioma or relapsed or refractory high grade glioma.

Phase

HER2-specific CAR T Cell Locoregional Immunotherapy for HER2-positive Recurrent/Refractory Pediatric CNS Tumors

This is a Phase 1 study of central nervous system (CNS) locoregional adoptive therapy with autologous CD4 and CD8 T cells lentivirally transduced to express a HER2-specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) and EGFRt, delivered by an indwelling catheter in the tumor resection cavity or ventricular system in children and young …

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 …

Phase N/A

A First in Human Study Using 89Zr-cRGDY Ultrasmall Silica Particle Tracers for Malignant Brain Tumors

The purpose of this study is to test if PET scans using 89Zr-DFO-cRGDY-PEG-Cy5-C' dot particles, can be used to take pictures of brain tumors. The investigators want to understand how the particles are distributed and removed from the body, which may help others be treated in the future. This will …

Phase

Effect of Dexmedetomidine on Brain Homeostasis and Neurocognitive Outcome

Each participant will receive standard monitoring (ECG, SpO2, SBP, BIS, urine output, temperature). More detailed hemodynamic monitoring will be obtained by Edwards Lifesciences ClearSight system (CO, CI, SV, SVI, SVV, SVR, SVRI). TCI Propofol and Remifentanil will be the agents of choice for induction and maintenance in anesthesia and cisatracurium …

Phase

Abemaciclib in Children With DIPG or Recurrent/Refractory Solid Tumors

Stratum A- Appropriate dose RT will be administered in 30-33 fractions over approximately 6 weeks for Stratum A patients. Treatment with abemaciclib (LY2835219) will start on the same day as radiation therapy (RT) and continue twice daily during and after RT for a maximum treatment duration of 2 years. Investigators …

Mitochondrial Disease and Dysfunction in Neurological and Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Mitochondria are essential for a wide range of functions in almost every cell in our body. Best known for their role in adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, mitochondria are also closely involved in a wide variety of cell functions such as calcium buffering, redox regulation, apoptosis and inflammation, and regulate metabolism …

Phase N/A

Medical Marijuana in the Pediatric Central Nervous System Tumor Population

Children's Hospital Colorado (CHCO) Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) is a national leader in pediatric cancer therapy. The CHCO Neuro-Oncology program treats more that 90% of Coloradan children with Central Nervous System (CNS) tumors and a large percentage of children with CNS tumors from the surrounding five states. …

Phase N/A

Memory Neuroimaging in Children Adolescents and Young Adults Following Pediatric Cancer

Brain tumours are the leading cause of cancer-related death and morbidity in children, adolescents and young adults. The brain is also one of the most sensitive organs to treatments used in pediatric oncology, even for cancers not related to the central nervous system. Therapeutic index is therefore a major issue …
