Testing if High Dose Radiation Only to the Sites of Brain Cancer Compared to Whole Brain Radiation That Avoids the Hippocampus is Better at Preventing Loss of Memory and Thinking Ability

This phase III trial compares the effect of stereotactic radiosurgery to standard of care memantine and whole brain radiation therapy that avoids the hippocampus (the memory zone of the brain) for the treatment of small cell lung cancer that has spread to the brain. Stereotactic radiosurgery is a specialized radiation …

Testing the Use of the Immunotherapy Drugs Ipilimumab and Nivolumab Plus Radiation Therapy Compared to the Usual Treatment (Temozolomide and Radiation Therapy) for Newly Diagnosed MGMT Unmethylated Glioblastoma

This phase II/III trial compares the usual treatment with radiation therapy and temozolomide to radiation therapy in combination with immunotherapy with ipilimumab and nivolumab in treating patients with newly diagnosed MGMT unmethylated glioblastoma. Radiation therapy uses high energy photons to kill tumor and shrink tumors. Chemotherapy drugs, such as temozolomide, …

Comparing Proton Therapy to Photon Radiation Therapy for Esophageal Cancer

This trial studies how well proton beam radiation therapy compared with intensity modulated photon radiotherapy works in treating patients with stage I-IVA esophageal cancer. Proton beam radiation therapy uses a beam of protons (rather than x-rays) to send radiation inside the body to the tumor without damaging much of the …

CB-839 With Radiation Therapy and Temozolomide in Treating Patients With IDH-Mutated Diffuse Astrocytoma or Anaplastic Astrocytoma

This phase 1b trial studies the side effects and best dose of glutaminase inhibitor CB-839 hydrochloride (CB-839) in combination with radiation therapy and temozolomide in treating patients with IDH-mutated diffuse or anaplastic astrocytoma. CB-839 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell …

Prevention of Hypertensive Injury to the Brain by Intensive Treatment in IntraCerebral Haemorrhage (PROHIBIT-ICH)

PROHIBIT-ICH will randomise participants to compare a strategy of intensive BP treatment (target <120/80 mm Hg) guided by telemetric home monitoring, versus standard primary care (current RCP guideline is 130/80 mm Hg), in 112 adult survivors of hypertension-related ICH. The investigators will establish the feasibility and safety of the intervention, …

Men and Women Offering Understanding of Throat HPV

This study will screen people for oncogenic oral Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection and antibodies to form a cohort of people who may be at increased risk of HPV-oropharyngeal cancer (HPV-OPC). The investigators will follow these individuals prospectively to evaluate oncogenic oral HPV persistence, risk factors, and biomarkers for persistence.
