Alpha/Beta CD19+ Depleted Haploidentical Transplantation + Zometa for Pediatric Hematologic Malignancies and Solid Tumors
This phase I trial studies the safety of transplantation with a haploidentical donor peripheral blood stem cell graft depleted of TCRαβ+ cells and CD19+ cells in conjunction with the immunomodulating drug, Zoledronate, given in the post-transplant period to treat pediatric patients with relapsed or refractory hematologic malignancies or high risk solid tumors.
AMPLIFYing NEOepitope-specific VACcine Responses in Progressive Diffuse Glioma
The trial will address safety and tolerability of the combination of the IDH1R132H-specific vaccine with checkpoint blockade and seeks to explore predictive biomarkers for response to checkpoint blockade in post-treatment tumor tissue. The study will enroll 48 evaluable patients (presumably, 60 in total) with IDH1R132H-mutated gliomas with an unfavorable molecular profile (no 1p/19q co-deletion, nuclear ATRX- loss) progressive after radiotherapy and alkylating chemotherapy eligible for re-resection. After diagnosis of recurrent disease on imaging patients will be randomized assigned in a 1:1:2 ratio into three arms. Arm 1 (12 ...
AMT-PET in Monitoring Telotristat Etiprate Treatment in Participants With Metastatic Well Differentiated Neuroendocrine Neoplasm
This pilot trial studies how well telotristat etiprate works in treating participants with well differentiated neuroendocrine neoplasm that has spread to other places in the body and monitored by carbon C 11 alpha-methyltryptophan (AMT)-emission tomography (PET). Telotristat etiprate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Studying the changes within the tumor cells via AMT-PET may help doctors better understand how tumors respond to treatment with telotristat etiprate.
Analysis of Cell Count, Viability, and Immunogenicity of Discarded Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma Tissue or Solid Tumor Tissues
This study examines tumor tissues and blood samples to aid in the development of therapies for brain cancer and other solid tumors. Studying samples of blood and tissue from patients with glioblastoma or other solid tumor in the laboratory may help doctors understand brain tumors and better inform future treatments.
Analysis of CMV Infections in Patients With Brain Tumors or Brain Metastases During and After Radio(Chemo)Therapy
Radio(chemo)therapy is the standard therapy for both, brain tumors and brain metastases. Neurological decline is observed in these patients and tumor progression or radiotherapy side effects have been made responsible for this. However CMV encephalitis may also be a reason. Therefore the investigators aim to analyze the CMV status in patients during and after radio(chemo)therapy. It will be checked by CMV-DNA (PCR analysis) and CMV antibodies (IgG and IgM ELISA) in the blood of the patients. These findings will be correlated with changes in the brain, visualized by MRI. In addition a detailed immunophenotyping in the peripheral blood...
Analysis of the Modulation of the Tumor Microenvironment by MK-3475 (Pembrolizumab) Using a Systems Biology Approach (PEMSYS)
This is a monocentric, prospective, interventional and translational phase II study. Metastatic melanoma (mMEL) patients who are naive to immune therapy in the metastatic setting, and for whom an anti-Programmed Cell Death-1 (PD-1) therapy is needed could be eligible. The aim of the study is to identify biological markers which allow to better understand and predict the tumor response to pembrolizumab treatment, and thus to establish more efficient treatments for selected patients. Eligible patients will be registered (n=30) and will be treated with pembrolizumab monotherapy at 200 mg every three weeks for 2 years maximum until ...
Analyzing Preoperative Stereotactic Radiosurgery With Gamma Knife Icon for Brain Metastases
This is a single-arm, single-center pilot study in which 10 patients with one to four brain metastases diagnosed on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) within the past 30 days will be evaluated for study eligibility and enrolled as appropriate.
Analyzing Pulsed Reduced Dose Radiotherapy in Upfront Glioblastoma
The primary protocol objective is to assess the impact of substituting pulsed reduced dose radiotherapy (pRDR) for standard radiation therapy in the upfront treatment of glioblastoma (GBM) on disease progression.
Androcur® (Cyproterone Acetate) and Meningioma Development: a Genotype-environment Association Study
The primary objective of the study is to create a biobank of oral smears permitting to identify the genetic locus/loci associated with an increased risk to develop meningiomas after cyproterone acetate (CPA) (Androcur®) treatment, using a GWAS approach. As the secondary objectives, the study aims: - to evaluate the importance of the genetic susceptibility. - to record the frequence of homonodependant cancers occuring in female patients with Androcur® associated meningioma and in their first-degree relatives. - to describe clinical, radiological, histological characteristics of the patients who have...
An Efficacy Study of Adjuvant Treatment With the Personalized Cancer Vaccine mRNA-4157 and Pembrolizumab in Participants With High-Risk Melanoma (KEYNOTE-942)
The purpose of this study is to assess whether postoperative adjuvant therapy with mRNA-4157 and pembrolizumab improves recurrence free survival (RFS) compared to pembrolizumab alone in participants with complete resection of cutaneous melanoma and a high risk of recurrence.
