Trigeminal Nerve Cardiac Reflex During Resection of Cerebellopontine Angle Tumors and Postoperative Myocardial Injury
Myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery is significantly related to postoperative 30-day mortality. Trigeminal cardiac reflex is one of the main causes of perioperative cardiac emergency. Therefore, the investigators' aim is to test the hypothesis that trigeminal cardiac reflex associates postoperative myocardial damage in participants undergoing cerebellopontine angle tumor surgery. The investigators will observe the association between trigeminal cardiac reflex and myocardial injury by measuring the concentration of plasma high sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTnT) in participants after cerebellopontine angle tumor surgery.
Utidelone Plus Bevacizumab for Advanced Breast Cancer With Brain Metastases
This study aims to investigate the efficacy and safety of utidelone in combination with bevacizumab in the treatment of advanced breast cancer with brain metastases, and thus provides a new systemic treatment strategy for those patients.
Vaccination With Autologous Dendritic Cells Loaded With Autologous Tumour Homogenate in Glioblastoma
Single arm, monocentric trial to assess the safety and the progression-free survival related to the combined treatment of dendritic cell vaccine loaded with autologous tumor homogenate and temozolomide in patients operated for glioblastoma and then treated with standard radiochemotherapy (according to Stupp regimen).
Variations of Immune Infiltrate and Cell Plasticity Markers in Treated Metastatic Melanoma Patients
COLEMAN is an opened prospective monocentric non-randomized study, initiated by the Hospices Civils de Lyon. Population targeted are patients from 18 years old with stage III or IV metastatic melanoma eligible for a metastatic melanoma treatment administered as part of usual care. The objective is to study the variations of immune infiltrate and cell plasticity before and under immunotherapy or targeted therapy. Two biopsies are done before and one month after the treatment initiation and one blood sample is done after the treatment initiation. 100 patients will be included and followed during 5 years.
Vascular Signature Mapping of Brain Tumor Genotypes
A glioma is a primary brain tumor in adults that is characterized by a highly variable, but overall poor survival. The optimal timing of treatment is in part determined by the expected biological behavior of the tumor. At present the expected biological behavior, determined by the tumor genotype, can only be determined by tissue analysis, which requires brain surgery. Non-invasive and improved diagnostic methods are sought to obtain insight into the molecular profile of the tumor and the expected biological behavior to avoid surgery performed solely for diagnostic purposes. Vascularization is an important aspect of the biological behavior...
Video Education With Result Dependent dIsclosure
The overall study objective of this trial study is to identify and evaluate strategies to improve the accessibility of the video education with result dependent disclosure (VERDI) model, increasingly utilized as a pre-genetic testing (pretest) education alternative in clinical practice, to better serve a more diverse patient population at risk for hereditary cancers.
Vincristine and Temozolomide in Combination With PEN-866 for Adolescents and Young Adults With Relapsed or Refractory Solid Tumors
Background: The drug PEN-866 can remain in tumor cells longer than it does in normal cells. It also may be more effective than other drugs at treating Ewing sarcoma and rhabdomyosarcoma. Researchers want to learn if combining PEN-866 with other drugs can treat certain cancers in adolescents and young adults. Objective: To learn if the combination of PEN-866 with vincristine and temozolomide can be used to treat adolescents and young adults with solid tumors that have returned after or did not respond to standard treatments, or for which there are no standard treatments. Eligibility: People ages 12-39...
Visual Rehabilitation in Children With Homonymous Hemianopia: a Pilot Study on Virtual-reality Stimulation
There are currently no visual rehabilitation strategies for children presenting visual field defects consecutive to a brain tumor or its treatment. This study seeks to investigate the use of a home-based stimulation visual rehabilitation program using immerse-virtual reality (IVR) in children aged 4-10 years old with a diagnosis of hemianopia
WBSI Guided Personalized Delivery of TTFields
This research study is for Glioblastoma (GBM) patients who will be beginning Optune as part of their clinical care, which is a novel treatment that utilizes - tumor treating fields (TTFields), (aka, electrical therapy), which has shown to improve overall survival in large multi-center trials. As a part of this study, participants will either receive Optune with "standard array mapping" (based on regular contrast enhanced MRI) or an "alternative (more precise) array mapping" based on sophisticated state of the art MRI techniques including "whole brain spectroscopy". Whole brain MRI spectroscopy provides additional metabolic ...
Why Still in Neurosurgical Ward After Tumor Craniotomy?
The aim of this prospective observational study is to identify the specific reasons that prolong a hospital stay after elective tumor craniotomy. Optimal postoperative in-hospital stay is considered to be two days from surgery to discharge from the neurosurgical ward. However, a variable length of stay at a neurological department for follow-up of late recognized deficits of neurological consequences of the surgical procedure are common.
