Simulation-Based Caregiving Skills Training for Family Members of High Grade Glioma Patients
Family caregivers of patients with a primary brain tumor experience a high caregiving load including assistance with activities of daily living without any formal training. It is not surprising that this vulnerable caregiver population reports high levels of distress along with numerous caregiving-related concerns, which may compromise their ability to provide quality care. This project will examine the feasibility and initial evidence for efficacy of a caregiving skills intervention aiming to improve caregiver and patient psychological health; caregiving efficacy and role adjustment; and reduce patient cancer-related symptoms and...
Sintilimab (One Anti-PD-1 Antibody) Plus Low-dose Bevacizumab for Bevacizumab Refractory Recurrent Glioblastoma
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of sintilimab (one anti-PD-1 antibody same as nivolumab approved in China) in combination with bevacizumab in patients with recurrent or progressive glioblastoma (GBM) who have progressed on bevacizumab with or without PTEN or TERT gene mutations.
Sintilimab (One Anti-PD-1 Antibody) Plus Low-dose Bevacizumab for ctDNAlevel- Relapse and Clinical-relapse Astrocytoma
This is an ongoing Phase 2, open-label, single-center, non-randomized study of sintilimab (one anti-PD-1 antibody same as nivolumab approved in China) plus bevacizumab administered in a low dosage schedule in adult (≥ 18 years) participants with a clinical relapse or circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA)-level relapse of Astrocytoma. This study has three non-comparative study groups. Cohort 1 and Cohort 2 will receive the same study drug sintilimab 200mg and bevacizumab 3mg/kg every 3 weeks. Cohort 3 will take only standard treatment. A stringent three-step non-randomized process will be used to assign participants to one of the study...

This is an ongoing Phase 2, open-label, single-center, non-randomized study of sintilimab (one anti-PD-1 antibody same as nivolumab approved in China) plus bevacizumab administered in a low dosage schedule in adult (≥ 18 years) participants with a clinical relapse or circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA)-level relapse of glioblastoma (GBM). This study has two non-comparative study groups. Both cohorts will receive the same study drug sintilimab 200mg and bevacizumab 3mg/kg every 3 weeks. A stringent two-step non-randomized process will be used to assign participants to one of the study groups. Neither participants nor doctors but the...
SIOPEN BIOPORTAL, An International Registry Linked to a Virtual Biobank for Patients With Peripheral Neuroblastic Tumours
The SIOPEN BIOPORTAL is a prospective non-therapeutic multi-centre international study aimed at developing an international Registry linked to a Virtual Biobank for all the patients with peripheral neuroblastic tumor within countries of the SIOPEN network. The overall aim of this study is to provide a GDPR-compliant framework to collect basic clinical annotations, biological and genetic features and information about the location on biospecimens for all the patients with a peripheral neuroblastic tumor including neuroblastoma, ganglioneuroblastoma and ganglioneuroma in the SIOPEN network. This study will support data and sample...
Sonodynamic Therapy With ExAblate System in Glioblastoma Patients
The goal of this prospective, non-randomized, single-arm study is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of sonodynamic therapy with 5-aminolevulinic acid in patients with newly diagnosed cerebral glioblastomas using the ExAblate Model 4000 Type-2 "Neuro-System". Patients will be consented, screened, and will undergo study SDT treatment with 5-ALA using the ExAblate Model 4000 Type-2 "Neuro-System". After SDT treatment, patients will perform a strict neuro-radiological follow-up (minimum of 2 MRI) and undergo tumor resection 14-21 days after SDT, according to the clinical and radiological status. The main goal of the present...
Sonography-guided Resection of Brain Mass Lesions
Objective of the study is to determine possibilities of intraoperative sonography in detecting of various brain mass lesions, assessing extent of their resection and define indications to use ultrasound-guided needle or ultrasound wire-guided port.
Sophrology Treatment for Patients With Glial Tumours Requiring Speech Therapy
Patients with brain tumours experience a loss of independence, which may occur suddenly or gradually. Communication with the patient may be rapidly impaired, due to impaired alertness, language and/or neurocognitive disorders. In addition to these clinical symptoms, there is a high level of anxiety and depression in this population due to the severity of the diagnosis, with a major impact on the patients' quality of life. In this study, we are mainly interested in the proportion of this population with communication disorders where speech therapy is important In order to better take into account anxiety, which is often difficult to...
