RESULTS

Found (68) clinical trials

The investigator's study hypothesizes (1) stereotactic radiosurgery of cancer stem-like cells in these regions will be well tolerated during standard of care therapy, (2) focused stereotactic radiosurgery will be more effective in destroying cancer stem cells than conventional radiation therapy, and (3) treatment will improve malignant glioma survival

Procaspase Activating Compound-1 (PAC-1) in the Treatment of Advanced Malignancies - Component 2

PAC-1 in combination with temozolomide (Component 2): after the MTD is established for single agent PAC-1 in Component 1, a modified-Fibonacci dose-escalation 3+3 design starts in Component 2, at a PAC-1 dose one level lower than the MTD of PAC-1 established in the single agent PAC-1 component (i.e., Component 1) ...

Trial of Panobinostat in Children With Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma

Description This is a multicenter, phase 1 trial of Panobinostat (LBH589) for children with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma tumors. Panobinostat is a pan-HDAC inhibitor of Class I, II and IV histone deacetylases (HDACs) involved in the deacetylation of histone and non-histone cellular proteins. Panobinostat inhibits purified total cellular histone deacetylase ...

Trial of Heat Shock Protein Peptide Complex-96 (HSPPC-96) Vaccine

Immunotherapy for Brain Tumors: Although it is usually ineffective alone, it has long been recognized that the immune system of tumor bearing hosts (human and animal models) does, indeed, mount an endogenous immune-mediated response to tumor. Unfortunately, this immune response alone is not sufficient in combating tumor. The balance of ...

SJDAWN: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Phase 1 Study Evaluating Molecularly-Driven Doublet Therapies for Children and Young Adults With Recurrent Brain Tumors

Patients will be stratified by the molecular and histologic characteristics of their tumor to one of three treatment strata. STRATUM A: Combination Treatment: ribociclib and gemcitabine. Patient Population: Participants with a diagnosis of refractory or recurrent medulloblastoma (Group 3/4) or refractory or recurrent ependymoma (including: ependymoma, not otherwise specified (NOS), ...

Hydroxy-urea and Temozolomide in Patients With a Recurrent Malignant Brain Tumor (Glioblastoma)

Background Currently, no standard treatment exists for patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (rGBM) and used 2nd line treatments have low (up to max. 20%) response rates and very modest response duration (months). The median overall survival for GBM patients is 12-14 months from the time of diagnosis; therefore the development ...

Study Of Vinblastine in Combination With Nilotinib in Children Adolescents and Young Adults

Low grade gliomas (LGG) are the most frequent brain tumor type in children. They are often chemosensitive. However, more than 50% of these tumors will progress within the first 5 years after the start of the treatment and need a second-line therapy (Laithier, JCO 2003). In most cases, patients are ...

A Phase I Dose Escalation Study for Patients With Recurrent Malignant Gliomas

Recurrent malignant gliomas are uniformly fatal, and there has been no standard treatment in this setting. Radiation therapy remains the main treatment. Although the efficacy of systemic chemotherapy has not been well defined, studies have shown that some new agents such as gefitinib and vandetanib have promising effects either as ...

INC280 Combined With Bevacizumab in Patients With Glioblastoma Multiforme

Despite recent advances, glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) remains an incurable malignancy with a short expected survival. c-MET signalling promotes invasive growth and has been described in various cancers. INC280 is a highly potent and selective c-MET inhibitor which also penetrates the blood-brain barrier. In this open-label, multicenter Phase 1b study, investigators ...

Phase

Neo-adjuvant Evaluation of Glioma Lysate Vaccines in WHO Grade II Glioma

Low-grade gliomas (LGG), the most common of which are pilocytic astrocytomas, diffuse astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas, and mixed oligo-astrocytomas are a diverse family of central nervous system (CNS) neoplasms that occur in children and adults. Based on data from the American Cancer Society and Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States ...
