Proton and Heavy Ion Beam Radiation vs. Photon Beam Radiation for Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma.
This is a multi-center prospective phase 3 clinical trial to explore the efficacy and side effects of standard-dose photon radiation versus standard-dose proton radiation versus carbon ion boost plus standard proton radiation for newly diagnosed glioblastoma. The patients enrolled will be randomly allocated with 1:1:1 to three group: Control Group, standard-dose photon radiotherapy; Study Group A, standard-dose proton radiotherapy; Study Group B, standard-dose proton radiotherapy plus induction carbon-ion radiotherapy boost. The primary endpoint is overall survival (OS).
Proton Dose Escalation for Patients With Atypical or Anaplastic Meningiomas
The trial evaluates the effect of a moderately increased radiation dose in patients with atypical (grade II) and anaplastic (grade III) meningioma after incomplete or no surgery. Endpoint is recurrence-free survival after 5 years.
PTCs-based Precision Treatment Strategy on Recurrent High-grade Gliomas
This trial is an open-label, single-arm, phase 0/1 study of high-grade glioma that aims to evaluate the feasibility, preliminary efficacy and safety of the precision treatment strategy.
Radiogenomics in Glioblastoma: Correlation Between Multiparametric Imaging Biomarkers and Genetic Biomarkers
The purpose of this study is to evaluate relationships between multiparametric imaging biomarkers and genetic analysis in glioblastoma patients.
Radiotherapy Planning Using Fluciclovine PET in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma
The purpose of the this study is to see if the use of a PET scan with 18F-fluciclovine (PET or Fluciclovine PET) in addition to the normal radiation planning imaging procedures (MRI and CT scan) will help determine the areas where the radiation therapy is to be delivered. It is also a goal of the study to determine if subjects live longer when treatment plans for radiation therapy are designed using a Fluciclovine PET scan, as well as MRI and CT scans. We will also collect information on if and where the tumor returns. Information on the side effects from the two different treatment planning imaging methods will also be collected. ...
Rapid Administration Pilot for Infusing Dinutuximab
Studies have shown that the anti-GD2 human-mouse chimeric monoclonal antibody dinutuximab has contributed significantly to the improvement of treatment for children with high-risk neuroblastoma and has become a mainstay in treating high risk neuroblastoma in children as part of up-front therapy and relapsed/refractory therapy. The administration of dinutuximab requires a significant amount of time and resources to complete the 10-20 hour standard infusion time for 4 days in the inpatient setting. During its early development, a phase I study profiling the clinical efficacy and tolerability of dinutuximab infusions in children ...
Regorafenib With Tislelizumab in Patients With Selected Mismatch Repair-Proficient/Microsatellite Stable Cancers
REFIT-MSS is a non-randomized, multicenter, open-label, multi-cohort, 2-stage, phase II trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of regorafenib in combination with tislelizumab (referred as Rego-Tisle) in adult patients with select advance, previously treated, Mismatch Repair-Proficient/Microsatellite (pMMR/MSS) stable solid cancers. The multi-cohort design will allow for the examination of 8 separate cohorts of different cancers to determine whether further examination may be warranted in the individual indications.
Relationship of PNI and Clinical Outcome in Patients Undergoing Brain Tumor Surgery
There are several predictors of clinical outcome in patients undergoing brain tumor surgery. Among those, nutritional parameters and calculated nutritional index are known to have ability to predict mortality and clinical outcomes in some patients with brain tumor. However, there are lack of consistent results on predictability of nutritional index and clinical outcome in patients undergoing brain tumor surgery.
Remote Ischemic Preconditioning in Vestibular Schwannoma Surgery
Vestibular schwannomas are primarily benign (WHO grade I) tumors originating from the Schwann cells of the vestibular nerve and are among the most common tumors of the skull base. Common treatment options are surgical tumor resection or targeted radiation therapy. The special challenge of surgical treatment is the functional preservation of the cranial nerves, especially the cochlear and facial nerves. Perioperative ischemia of the cochlea and cochlear nerve is postulated as the underlying mechanism of postoperative hearing loss. Ischemic preconditioning is a non-invasive procedure that triggers the release of vasoactive cytokines ...
Research of Pathological Imaging Diagnosis of Ocular Tumors Based on New Artificial Intelligence Algorithm
The purpose of this study is to establish a standardized process for obtaining digital pathological image information of ocular tumors; use modern pathological techniques to obtain the co-expression information of multiple biomarkers in the pathological tissues of ocular tumors, and finally construct standardized digital ocular tumors with biomarkers Pathology image database.
