Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors With NovoTTF-100M for the Treatment of Melanoma Brain Metastases
This phase I trial finds out the side effects and possible benefits of stereotactic radiosurgery and immune checkpoint inhibitors with NovoTTF-100M for the treating of melanoma that has spread to the brain (brain metastases). Stereotactic radiosurgery is a type of external radiation therapy that uses special equipment to position the patient and precisely give a single large dose of radiation to a tumor. It is used to treat brain tumors and other brain disorders that cannot be treated by regular surgery. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack...
Stereotactic Radiosurgery Prognosis Assessment for Spinal Tumors Based on Radiomics
This study aims to assess multimodal Radiomics-based prediction model for prognostic prediction in spinal tumors.
Strategic Intervention on Preserving Language Function During Awake Craniotomy
This study is designed to compare the language function after traditional or a new surgical plan during awake craniotomy for glioma resection.
Strategic Intervention on Preserving Motor Function During Awake Craniotomy
This study aims to compare the motor functions after traditional or a new surgical plan during awake glioma resection surgery.
Strict Classic Ketogenic Diet as a Therapy for Recurrent or Progressive and Refractory Brain Tumors in Children
This is a pilot study to test the feasibility of implementing a strict classic ketogenic diet among a population of children with recurrent or progressive and refractory brain tumors. Eligible participants will be admitted to the neurosciences floor for 5 days to begin the ketogenic diet either orally, by gastrostomy tube or via nasogastric tube. During the inpatient stay, they will be extensively educated on the diet restrictions and rules. Participants will then continue on the diet at home returning about 17 times over the next 12 months. Daily logs will be kept tracking diet changes, bowel movements and urine ketones. Blood will...
Study Assessing QBS72S For Treating Brain Metastases of Triple Negative Breast Cancer
This study will evaluate whether the chemotherapy agent QBS10072S,a.k.a. QBS72S, is effective and safe as a treatment for two types of brain metastases from triple negative breast cancer.
Study Comparing Standard of Care Chemotherapy With/ Without Sequential Cytoreductive Surgery for Patients With Metastatic Foregut Cancer and Undetectable Circulating Tumor-Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid Levels
This study is designed for participants who have cancer of the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract such as cancer of the esophagus, stomach, duodenum (the initial portion of your small intestine), pancreas, bile duct (Cholangiocarcinoma), ampulla, or gall bladder with limited sites of spread (metastases). Doctors leading this study are looking to see if treating the disease using sequential procedures (more than one procedure given one after another) such as surgeries or radiation can lead to better survival and if these surgeries, combined with standard of care treatment, are safe for the treatment of upper GI cancers.
Study of Antineoplaston Therapy + Radiation vs. Radiation Only in Diffuse, Intrinsic, Brainstem Glioma
Patients ≥ 3 years of age with newly-diagnosed, diffuse, intrinsic pontine glioma will be enrolled in this study. However, the primary objectives of this study are to 1) compare overall survival, the time from randomization to death from any cause, for study subjects 3-21 years of age with newly-diagnosed, diffuse, intrinsic pontine glioma who receive Antineoplaston therapy (Atengenal + Astugenal) + radiation therapy vs. radiation therapy alone and 2) describe the toxicity profile (all subjects) for Antineoplaston therapy + radiation therapy vs. radiation therapy alone. A secondary objective is to compare progression-free survival...
Study of Cabozantinib With Lu-177 in Patients With Somatostatin Receptor 2 Positive Neuroendocrine Tumors
The phase I objective of this study is to establish the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) of cabozantinib in 20 mg, 40 mg and 60 mg dose escalation cohorts in combination with Lu-177 dotatate at a standard dose of 7.4 GBq in four (4) 8-week cycles followed by continuation cabozantinib.
Study of CBL0137 in Combination With Ipilimumab and Nivolumab Therapy in Melanoma
Phase I, open label, dose-escalation, and safety study designed to assess the safety and biologic activity of the investigational agent CBL0137 in combination with standard of care drugs, ipilimumab and nivolumab in sequential cohorts of adult patients with locally advanced and metastatic melanoma who are candidates for immune checkpoint blockade and have tumors accessible for serial biopsies.
