Vorinostat in Combination With Chemotherapy in Relapsed/Refractory Solid Tumors and CNS Malignancies
We are testing new experimental drug combinations such as the combination of vorinostat, vincristine, irinotecan, and temozolomide in the hopes of finding a drug that may be effective against tumors that have come back or that have not responded to standard therapy. The goals of this study are: - To find the highest safe dose of vorinostat that can be given together with vincristine, irinotecan, and temozolomide without causing severe side effects; - To learn what kind of side effects this four drug combination can cause; - To learn about the effects of vorinostat and the combination of vorinostat, vincristine, ...
VX15/2503 With or Without Ipilimumab and/or Nivolumab in Patients With Resectable Stage IIIB-D Melanoma
This pilot phase I trial studies how well VX15/2503 (pepinemab) with or without ipilimumab and/or nivolumab work in treating participants with stage IIIB-D melanoma that can be removed by surgery. Monoclonal antibodies, such as VX15/2503, ipilimumab, and nivolumab may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
VXM01 Plus Avelumab Combination Study in Progressive Glioblastoma
VXM01 in combination with avelumab in n=30 patients with progressive glioblastoma following standard treatment, with or without second surgery
Whack-a-Mole: Testing an Intervention to Increase Melanoma Identification
The purpose of this study is to evaluate an interactive game designed to increase people's ability to identify cancerous moles.
Whole-body DW-MRI and cfDNA Analysis for the Surveillance of Melanoma Patients at High Risk for Recurrence.
Patients with locally advanced melanoma are at high risk for recurrence following surgical treatment. More patients with stage IV melanoma remain in complete remission following systemic therapy. No standards have been established for the surveillance of patients at high risk for recurrence. Whole-body diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging and cfDNA analysis of blood are innovative imaging and laboratory investigations that may be of benefit for early detection of recurrence in this patient population.
Whole Body Dynamic 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are a network of rare tumors with common embryological origin. Functional imaging plays a major role in the extension assessment and tumor characterization of NETs. SPECT/CT with 111In-pentetreotide is the recommended test when tumors are well differentiated (grade G1 or G2). It has a real interest in diagnosis, in therapeutic decision-making (in particular by cold somatostatin analogues or in PRRT) and in the systematic follow-up of patients. Nevertheless, SPECT/CT procedure makes for a relatively long review. In addition, scintigraphy has a lower spatial resolution than PET technology and remains of limited...
Whole Brain Radiation Therapy Alone vs. Radiosurgery for SCLC Patients With 1-10 Brain Metastases
Patients suffering from small cell lung cancer (SCLC) are at high risk for developing brain metastases (BM). To prevent a clinical manifestation of preexisting microscopic brain dissemination, prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) is offered to both limited and extensive disease patients, if they respond to first line regime, thus being at risk or at chance to develop clinical brain metastases. However, up to 10-15% of patients present with BM at initial diagnosis. If MRI is used as a diagnostic tool for initial staging the number even increases up to 15-20%. Additionally, between 40 - 50% of patients develop BM until time of death and the...
Whole Brain Radiation Therapy With Standard Temozolomide Chemo-Radiotherapy and Plerixafor in Treating Patients With Glioblastoma
This phase II trial studies how well whole brain radiation therapy works with standard temozolomide chemo-radiotherapy and plerixafor in treating patients with glioblastoma (brain tumor). Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Plerixafor is a drug that may prevent recurrence of glioblastoma after radiation treatment. Giving whole brain radiation therapy with standard temozolomide chemo-radiotherapy...
Whole Brain Radiation Using IMRT for Patients With Brain Metastases
Some cancers can spread, or metastasize, to the brain. When they do, treatment often involves surgery and/or radiation. Optimal treatment of brain metastases would maximize disease control and minimize toxicity (or side effects), and improve the quality of life of patients. A common type of radiation used for brain metastases is called whole brain radiation, which treats not just the cancer that can be seen on scans (i.e., gross disease), but the smaller sites of cancer that may not be visible (i.e. subclinical disease). Fractionation is used to describe repetitive treatments in which small doses (fractions) of a total planned dose are ...
Whole Brain Radiation Versus Stereotactic Radiation (SRS) in Patients With 5-20 Brain Metastases: A Phase III, Randomized Clinical Trial
This research study is studying two different types of radiation as treatment for brain metastases (tumors in the brain that spread from a cancer that originated elsewhere in the body)
