Protein Phosphatase 2A Inhibitor, in Recurrent Glioblastoma
Background: The brain is separated from the rest of the blood stream by the blood-brain barrier. This is like a filter that protects the brain. But is also a challenge when medicines need to get into the brain. Researchers want to give the new drug LB100 to people before brain tumor surgery. They will measure how much LB100 is in the blood and how much gets into the brain. This may help with the use of LB100 to treat brain tumors in the future. Objective: To see if LB100 can pass into the brain. Eligibility: People at least 18 years old with a brain tumor that requires surgery Design: ...
Abemaciclib (LY2835219) in Patients With Recurrent Primary Brain Tumors
The purpose of this study is to test any good and bad effects of a study drug called abemaciclib (LY2835219) in patients with recurrent brain tumors.
A Pilot Study of Glioma Associated Antigen Vaccines in Conjunction With Poly-ICLC in Pediatric Gliomas
The overall objective of this pilot study is to collect immunological and safety data following administration of vaccinations with HLA-A2. This data will be used to decide whether a larger study of clinical efficacy is warranted.
A Study of Varlilumab and IMA950 Vaccine Plus Poly-ICLC in Patients With WHO Grade II Low-Grade Glioma (LGG)
This is a pilot, randomized, two arm neoadjuvant vaccine study in human leukocyte antigen-A2 positive (HLA-A2+) adults with World Health Organization (WHO) grade II glioma, for which surgical resection of the tumor is clinically indicated. Co-primary objectives are to determine: 1) the safety of the novel combination of subcutaneously administered IMA950 peptides and poly-ICLC (Hiltonol) and i.v. administered CDX-1127 (Varlilumab) in the neoadjuvant approach; and 2) whether addition of i.v. CDX-1127 (Varlilumab) increases the response rate and magnitude of CD4+ and CD8+ T-cell responses against the IMA950 peptides in post-vaccine...
Capecitabine + Bevacizumab in Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma
This study involves participants with recurrent glioblastoma brain tumors (GBM). This means that a participant's brain tumor has either returned after being treated by a previous therapy, or has continued to progress despite being treated. The purpose of this study is to provide proof of concept that suppression of MDSCs (myeloid-derived suppressor cells) is feasible in patients with GBM. Rather than targeting tumor cells or immune checkpoints, which has been the focus of recent therapeutic efforts, direct targeting of MDSCs with low dose capecitabine has the potential to reverse the immunosuppressed microenvironment of GBM and...
Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Sodium Thiosulfate in Preventing Low Platelet Count While Treating Patients With Malignant Brain Tumors
This randomized phase II trial studies how well giving combination chemotherapy with or without sodium thiosulfate works in preventing low platelet count while treating patients with malignant brain tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, cyclophosphamide, and etoposide phosphate, 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. Sodium thiosulfate may prevent low platelet counts in patients receiving chemotherapy. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without sodium...
Disulfiram and Copper Gluconate With Temozolomide in Unmethylated Glioblastoma Multiforme
One of Disulfiram antitumor effects suggested in preclinical studies is MGMT (methyl-guanine-methyl-transferase) inhibition. Disulfiram MGMT inhibitory effect is enhanced by addition of Copper. This study evaluates the impact of DSF + Cu combination when added to standard Temozolomide in the treatment of unmethylated GBM patients.
Efficacy and Safety of Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) Plus Lenvatinib (E7080/MK-7902) in Previously Treated Participants With Select Solid Tumors (MK-7902-005/E7080-G000-224/LEAP-005)
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of combination therapy with pembrolizumab (MK-3475) and lenvatinib (E7080/MK-7902) in participants with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), ovarian cancer, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer (CRC), glioblastoma (GBM), biliary tract cancers (BTC), or pancreatic cancer.
ERC1671/GM-CSF/Cyclophosphamide for the Treatment of Glioblastoma Multiforme
This phase II clinical trial studies how well ERC1671 plus Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) plus Cyclophosphamide with Bevacizumab works compared to Placebo Injection plus Placebo Pill with Bevacizumab in treating patients with recurrent/progressive, bevacizumab naïve glioblastoma multiforme and gliosarcoma (World Health Organization (WHO) grade IV malignant gliomas, GBM).
ExAblate Blood Brain Barrier Disruption (BBBD) for Planned Surgery in Suspected Infiltrating Glioma
This study is designed to assess the safety and feasibility of using the ExAblate, Type 2 to temporarily disrupt the blood brain barrier in non-enhancing suspected infiltrating glioma. The ExAblate Model 4000 Type-2 is intended for use as a tool to disrupt the BBB.
