Nivolumab and Temozolomide Versus Temozolomide Alone in Newly Diagnosed Elderly Patients With GBM
This study aims to investigate effect of Nivolumab and Temozolomide vs Temozolomide alone on overall survival in newly diagnosed elderly patients with glioblastoma. Who is it for? You may be eligible to join this study if you are aged 65 years or above, with newly diagnosed histologically confirmed GBM (WHO grade IV glioma including gliosarcoma) following surgery. The study aims to evaluate whether the combination of adjuvant nivolumab with temozolomide improves overall survival outcomes for this patient population. The outcome of the study will help determine the most effective treatment for patients with glioblastoma in the...
Nivolumab, Ipilimumab, and Short-course Radiotherapy in Adults With Newly Diagnosed, MGMT Unmethylated Glioblastoma
This is a single arm, open-label, phase II trial of nivolumab, ipilimumab and short-course radiation therapy in adult patients with newly diagnosed, MGMT unmethylated GBM with the primary objective of determining the overall survival at 1 year.
NovoTTF Therapy in Treating Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme
This pilot phase II trial studies how well Novocure's Tumor Treating Electric Fields (NovoTTF) therapy works in treating patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme. NovoTTF therapy uses a low intensity electric current to kill tumor cells. NovoTTF therapy may be effective treatment for brain cancer.
Pembrolizumab and Reirradiation in Bevacizumab Naïve and Bevacizumab Resistant Recurrent Glioblastoma
This research study is studying pembrolizumab and re-irradiation as possible treatments for glioblastoma. The drugs involved in this study are: - Pembrolizumab - Radiation - Bevacizumab, an FDA-approved drug for treating recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (GBM)
Pembrolizumab and Vorinostat Combined With Temozolomide for Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma
The purpose of this research study is to test the safety and tolerability of the combination treatment of the investigational drugs vorinostat and pembrolizumab, in combination with chemotherapy (temozolomide), and radiotherapy. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved pembrolizumab for use to treat a deadly skin cancer called melanoma and lung cancer and vorinostat to treat some forms of blood and lymph node cancers. However, both vorinostat and pembrolizumab are considered investigational drugs in this study because they are not approved for treatment of glioblastoma.
Phase 1b Study PVSRIPO for Recurrent Malignant Glioma in Children
The purpose of the study is to confirm the safety of the selected dose and potential toxicity of oncolytic poliovirus (PV) immunotherapy with PVSRIPO for pediatric patients with recurrent WHO grade III or IV malignant glioma, but evidence for efficacy will also be sought. The primary objective is to confirm the safety of the selected dose of PVSRIPO when delivered intracerebrally by convection-enhanced delivery (CED) in children with recurrent WHO Grade III malignant glioma (anaplastic astrocytoma, anaplastic oligoastrocytoma, anaplastic oligodendroglioma, anaplastic pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma) or WHO Grade IV malignant glioma ...
Phase I EGFR BATs in Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma
This is a phase I trial using EGFR Bi-armed Activated T-cells (BATs) in combination with standard of care temozolomide (TMZ) and radiation (RT) in patients with glioblastoma (GBM). The purpose of the study is to determine a safe dose of EGFR BATs when given with standard of care therapy.
Phase II Trial of Pembrolizumab in Recurrent or Residual High Grade Meningioma
This research study is studying a drug as a possible treatment for High Grade Meningioma. The drug involved in this study is an immunotherapy drug called pembrolizumab
Radiation Therapy Plus Temozolomide and Pembrolizumab With and Without HSPPC-96 in Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma (GBM)
Background: GBM refers to a specific kind of brain cancer called glioblastoma. The standard treatment for GBM is radiation plus temozolomide, an oral chemotherapy drug. Pembrolizumab is an immune therapy that is now used to treat other cancers. The addition of pembrolizumab to the standard treatment of radiation and temozolomide has been shown to be well tolerated. Researchers want to see if adding a vaccine made from the person s own tumor will improve the effect of the pembrolizumab. The vaccine which is developed from fresh tumor taken at the time of surgery is called HSPPC-96. Objectives: To see if the adding...
Safety and Immunogenicity of Personalized Genomic Vaccine and Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields) to Treat Glioblastoma
The purpose of this study is to use precision medicine in the form of a vaccine, a mutation-derived tumor antigen vaccine (MTA-based vaccine) in combination with standard care treatment of glioblastoma (GBM) and Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields). The study is designed to determine whether this treatment combination is well tolerated and safe.
