Feasibility Study of Modified Atkins Ketogenic Diet in the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Malignant Glioma
The purpose of this research study is to see if people can produce ketones in their blood with the modified Atkins diet. Modified Atkins diet is a diet that produces ketones in your blood by restricting carbohydrates to <20 grams per day. Ketones are substances that are produced in the blood when fat is being broken down. Ketones may help radiation work better and may starve your tumor because it is thought that some brain tumors can not use ketones to grow and can only use sugar or glucose to grow.
Ferumoxytol MRI in Assessing Response to Pembrolizumab in Patients With Glioblastoma
This pilot phase II trial studies how well ferumoxytol magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) works in assessing response to pembrolizumab in patients with glioblastoma. Diagnostic procedures, such as ferumoxytol MRI, may help measure a patient's response to pembrolizumab treatment.
Hypofractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery in Treating Patients With Large Brain Metastasis
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of hypofractionated radiosurgery in treating patients with large brain metastasis. Stereotactic radiosurgery can send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. Giving fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery may kill more tumor cells.
INdividualized Screening Trial of Innovative Glioblastoma Therapy (INSIGhT)
This research study is studying several investigational drugs as a possible treatment for Glioblastoma (GBM). The drugs involved in this study are : - Abemaciclib - Temozolomide (temodar) - Neratinib - CC115
Ketogenic Diet in Combination With Standard-of-care Radiation and Temozolomide for Patients With Glioblastoma
Enrolled subjects will be placed on a 16-week ketogenic diet (subject specific as prescribed by RD) while receiving standard of care cancer treatment (Radiation + Temozolomide). Study dietitians will create personalized meal plans for each patient with the goal of achieving and maintaining protocol defined metabolic ketosis. Subjects will be monitored for safety, nutrition, quality of life, and standard of care tumor assessments over the course of the study.
LUMINOS-101: PVSRIPO and Pembrolizumab in Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma
This Phase 2 single arm trial in patients with rGBM will characterize the efficacy, safety, tolerability and initial efficacy of PVSRIPO intratumoral infusion followed by intravenous pembrolizumab 14 to 28 days later, and every 3 weeks, thereafter.
MK-3475 in Combination With MRI-guided Laser Ablation in Recurrent Malignant Gliomas
The blood brain barrier (BBB) is a major obstacle to drug delivery in the treatment of malignant brain tumors including Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). MRI-guided laser ablation (MLA) has been noted to disrupt peritumoral BBB, which could then lead to increased access of new tumor antigens to the lymphovascular system and vice versa of immune effector cells to the tumor for effective activation of the immune system. Therefore the combination of MK-3475 and MLA as proposed in this protocol is hypothesized to create a therapeutic synergy in which MLA increases material access to promote immune activation and then MK-3475 maximizes these ...
Nanoparticle Albumin-Bound Rapamycin, Temozolomide, and Irinotecan Hydrochloride in Treating Pediatric Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Solid Tumors
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of nanoparticle albumin-bound rapamycin when given together with temozolomide and irinotecan hydrochloride in treating pediatric patients with solid tumors that have come back after a period of time during which the tumor could not be detected or has not responded to treatment. Nanoparticle albumin-bound rapamycin may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Chemotherapy drugs, such as temozolomide and irinotecan hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them...
Natural Killer Cell (CYNK-001) IV Infusion or IT Administration in Adults With Recurrent GBM
This study will find the maximum safe dose (MSD) or maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of CYNK-001 which are NK cells derived from human placental CD34+ cells and culture-expanded. CYNK-001 cells will be given after lymphodepleting chemotherapy for the systemic cohort (IV) (intravenous). The intratumoral cohort (IT) will not be giving lymphodepletion. The safety of this treatment will be evaluated, and researchers want to learn if NK cells will help in treating recurrent glioblastoma multiforme.
Neo-adjuvant Evaluation of Glioma Lysate Vaccines in WHO Grade II Glioma
This is a pilot neoadjuvant vaccine study in adults with WHO grade II glioma, for which surgical resection of the tumor is clinically indicated. Co-primary objectives are to determine: 1) the safety and feasibility of the neoadjuvant approach; and 2) whether the regimen increases the level of type-1 chemokine CXCL10 and vaccine-specific (i.e., reactive to GBM6-AD) CD8+ T-cells in tumor-infiltrating leukocytes (TILs) in the surgically resected glioma.
