Vaccination With Autologous Dendritic Cells Loaded With Autologous Tumor Lysate or Homogenate Combined With Immunomodulating Radiotherapy and/or Preleukapheresis IFN-alfa in Patients With Metastatic Melanoma: a Randomized "Proof-of-principle" Phase II Study
Title: Vaccination with autologous dendritic cells loaded with autologous tumor lysate or homogenate combined with immunomodulating radiotherapy and/or preleukapheresis IFN-alfa in patients with metastatic melanoma: a randomized "proof-of-principle" phase II study. Study Design: Randomized selection design, proof of principle study Study Duration: 36 months Number of Subjects: 24 evaluable patients Diagnosis and Main Inclusion Criteria: Patients with non resectable stage III or stage IV malignant melanoma carrying at least 2 measurable lesions, any line after 1st line Vemurafenib in patients carrying BRAF mutation-positive melanoma and/or...
Vaccine Enriched, Autologous, Activated T-Cells Directed to Tumor in Patients With Relapsed/Refractory Melanoma
The researchers will investigate if modified T-cells from a patients own system can be utilized to find and destroy metastatic melanoma tumor and thus improve patient outcomes.
Vaccine Therapy for the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma Multiforme
The purpose of this research study is to determine if an investigational dendritic cell vaccine, called pp65 DC, is effective for the treatment of a specific type of brain tumor called glioblastoma (GBM) when given with stronger doses of routine chemotherapy.
Vaccine Therapy in Treating Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma
This pilot early phase I trial studies the side effects of vaccine therapy in treating patients with glioblastoma that has come back. Vaccines made from a person's white blood cells mixed with tumor proteins from another person's glioblastoma tumors may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. Giving vaccine therapy may work better in treating patients with glioblastoma.
Validation of a Quality of Life Metric "Prolac-10"
This is a short-term validation study of a quality of life metric "Prolac-10" for patients diagnosed with a prolactinoma, undergoing new medical therapy.
Validation of Readiband™ Actigraph and Associated Sleep/Wake Classification Algorithms
This pilot study will assess feasibility and to obtain initial estimates of efficacy of Sleep Activity and Task Effectiveness (SAFTE) model, which can accurately estimate the impact of scheduling factors and sleep history on both safety and productivity. The SAFTE model will be used to asses cancer-related fatigue and study potential associations of change in sleep patterns to tumor recurrence in patients with high grade glioma. Data will be collected using the Readiband™ Sleep Tracker (https://www.fatiguescience.com/sleep-science-technology/). The Readiband device captures high-resolution sleep data, validated against the clinical gold ...
Validation of the Role of Levetiracetam for Newly Diagnosed GBM Patients
Prospective, open-labeled, multicenter cohort trial for validation of the role of levetiracetam as a sensitizer of temozolomide in the treatment of newly diagnosed glioblastoma patients.
Variables That Are Correlated to Developing Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PNET)
The study aims to identify predictors of disease in patients with hyperparathyroidism (HPTH) who undergo surgery.
VB-111 in Surgically Accessible Recurrent/Progressive GBM
This research study is studying a new viral cancer therapy, ofranergene obadenovec (VB-111), for recurrent or progressive glioblastoma (GBM), a brain tumor that is growing or progressing despite earlier treatment.
V-Boost Immunotherapy in Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain Cancer
The Phase II study to determine the safety and efficacy of V-Boost in treating a type of brain cancer called Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). V-Boost is an immunotherapy in which the patient's immune system will be modulated to eliminate tumor cells. V-Boost is made as an oral tablet which contains specially formulated hydrolyzed GBM antigens along with alloantigens. Patients are either newly diagnosed or with recurrent form of GBM who may have been subjected to surgery and/or chemo- or radiation therapy that ended up unsuccessful. The goal is to eradicate GBM tumor cells through daily oral administration of one pill of V-Boost ...
