RESULTS

Found (397) clinical trials

People with Glioblastoma are asked to participate in a research study being conducted by Northshore University Hospital.

Phase N/A

MRI-Guided Focused Ultrasound Feasibility Study for Brain Tumors

In this non-randomized feasibility study, FUS under MRI-guidance and thermometry will be given through intact human skull to brain tumor in up to ten (10) subjects. These subjects will be followed over a 3-month period with contrast MRI and clinical exams. The objectives are: To evaluate the safety of ExAblate ...

Phase N/A

Maintaining Cochlear Patency After VIIIth Nerve Surgery

Tumors arising from the VIIIth Nerve (vestibulo-cochlear nerve) typically present with progressive unilateral hearing loss and tinnitus. VIIIth Nerve tumors with documented growth on serial MRI scans typically lead to deafness in the affected ear over time. Radiation (Gamma Knife or stereotactic radiosurgery) may preserve hearing in ~80% while surgery ...

Phase N/A

ExAblate (Magnetic Resonance-guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery) Treatment of Brain Tumors

Although the initial treatment of malignant gliomas is well established, the best treatment for progressive disease remains undefined. Patients with newly diagnosed gliomas are typically treated with surgery followed by conformal radiation and concomitant chemotherapy. Even though these tumors are not curable, prolonged survival can be achieved in selected patients. ...

Phase N/A

Mechanisms of Ischemic Stroke in Cancer Patients

This will be a prospective cross-sectional study to examine the unique mechanisms of ischemic stroke in cancer patients. Enrollment will occur at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH)/Weill Cornell Medical Center (WCMC) and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). Measurements will occur at the NYPH/WCMC and MSKCC Neurovascular Ultrasound Laboratories, ...

Phase N/A

A Prospective Phase III Trial to Compare Stereotactic Radiosurgery Versus Whole Brain Radiation Therapy

Study Groups: If you are found to be eligible to take part in this study, you will be randomly assigned (as in the flip of a coin) to 1 of 2 study groups. You will have an equal chance of being assigned to either group: If you are in Group ...

Phase

Study of SBRT Efficacy on Intra and Extra -Cranial Tumors or Metastasis in Pediatrics Population (SBRT Pediatrics)

SBRT (Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy) is a radiotherapy treatment which involves the delivery of a single high dose radiation treatment or a few fractionated radiation treatments (usually up to 5). A high potent biological dose of radiation is delivered to the tumor improving the cure rates for the tumor, in ...

Phase N/A

Early Non Invasive Ventilation and Hematological Malignancies

Study Groups: If you agree to take part in this study, you will be randomly assigned (as in the flip of a coin) to 1 of 2 groups. This is done because no one knows if one study group is better, the same, or worse than the other group. You ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

NovoTTF-100A With Bevacizumab (Avastin) in Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma

This will be an open label Phase II trial in adults with recurrent glioblastoma (GBM). The NovoTTF-100A treatment and Bevacizumab will be administered on an outpatient basis; NovoTTF-100A treatment will be initiated in the outpatient clinic. PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the efficacy of the combination of bevacizumab and NovoTTF-100A ...
