Trial of Panobinostat in Children With Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of panobinostat in treating younger patients with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). Panobinostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Stratum 1 treats patients with DIPG that has returned or gotten worse (progressed). Stratum 2 treats patients with DIPG that has not yet gotten worse. Currently, only Stratum 2 is enrolling patients.
Trial of Radiation and Gene Therapy Before Nivolumab for Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma and Uveal Melanoma
This is a Phase II trial to determine the efficacy and safety of in situ gene therapy and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) used as a window of opportunity treatment before nivolumab in patients with metastatic squamous or non-squamous non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) and metastatic uveal melanoma. In situ gene therapy will consist of adenovirus-mediated expression of herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (ADV/HSV-tk) plus Valacyclovir therapy.
Trial of Selumetinib in Patients With Neurofibromatosis Type II Related Tumors
In this research study the researchers want to learn more about the effects (both good and bad) the study drug selumetinib has on participants with neurofibromatosis type II (NF2) related tumor. The researchers are asking patients with NF2 related tumors to be in the study, because their hearing has decreased and/or their NF2 related tumor has started to grow. The goals of this study are: - Determine if selumetinib will stop NF2 related tumors from growing - Measure the changes in hearing after receiving selumetinib for 6 months. - Determine if selumetinib improves how participants feel (physically and emotionally) and ...
Trial of Topotecan With VX-970 (M6620), an ATR Kinase Inhibitor, in Small Cell Cancers and Extrapulmonary Small Cell Cancers
Background: Chemotherapy damages cancer cell DNA so the cells die and the tumor shrinks. But it may stop working in some people over time. This is partly due to efficient DNA damage repair mechanisms used by tumor cells. VX-970 (M6620) may stop cancer cells from preventing the repair of DNA damaged by chemotherapy. The purpose of this study is to see if using the chemotherapy drug topotecan along with the drug VX-970 (M6620) will improve the response to chemotherapy. Objective: To study the safety and efficacy of VX-970 (M6620) and topotecan in treating small cell lung cancer. Eligibility: Adults at least 18...
Trial to Determine the Efficacy and Safety of JCAR017 in Adult Subjects With Aggressive B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
This open-label Phase 2 study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of modified T cells (JCAR017) administered to adult patients with aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The study will also help determine how long the modified T cells stay in the patient's body. Furthermore, changes in the patient's quality of life will be described. Phase 2 (autologous T cells expressing anti-CD19 chimeric antigen receptor) (DLBCL NOS [de novo or tFL], follicular lymphoma Grade 3B [FL3B], high grade B-cell Lymphoma [HGBL] and primary central nervous system lymphoma [PCNSL]).
Tryptophan Metabolism in Human Brain Tumors
In this research study, we will track the build-up of tryptophan, a radioactive tracer, in the brain using positron emission tomography (PET) scanning. Tryptophan, in its natural state, is an amino acid (one of the building blocks of proteins) that is normally present in the brain, and is used by the brain cells to create various other compounds. This process is altered in the presence of a brain tumor. By using a form of tryptophan marked with a small amount of radiation, we will be able to track this process during the course of the PET scan. This research will help determine if AMT PET is a useful method to recognize and differentiate...
TTAC-0001 Phase II Trial With Recurrent Glioblastoma Progressed on Bevacizumab
This is a phase II, open-Label clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of TTAC-0001 in patients with recurrent glioblastoma who was progressed on bevacizumab including therapy.
TTFields and Pulsed Bevacizumab for Recurrent Glioblastoma
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and deadliest primary malignant neoplasm of the central nervous system in adults. Despite an aggressive multimodality treatment approach including surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, overall survival remains poor. Novocure has shown that when properly tuned, very low intensity, intermediate frequency electric fields (TTFields) stunt the growth of tumor cells. The Optune system (NovoTTFTM Therapy) is a portable battery operated device, which produces TTFields within the human body by means of surface transducer arrays. The TTFields are applied to the patient by means of surface...
TTFields In GErmany in Routine Clinical Care
The purpose of this post-authorisation medical device study is to obtain real life data on the use of tumor-treating fields (TTFields) in patients with newly diagnosed GBM in routine clinical care in Germany. Patients with newly diagnosed GBM and clinical indication for TTFields treatment will be enrolled in the study after signing Informed consent to use their data and process it centrally for research purposes. The clinical indication for TTFields is one of the inclusion criteria and is defined prior to inclusion by the treating physician. The patient's decision regarding TTFields treatment is part of the observation and will be assessed...
Tumor Electric Fields Treatment System for Glioblastoma
This early phase I trial will investigate the safety and feasibility of applying the Tumor Electric Fields Treatment System to subjects with recurrent glioblastoma.
