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.
131I-Labeled MIBG for Refractory Neuroblastoma: A Compassionate Use Protocol
This is a compassionate use protocol to allow patients with advanced neuroblastoma palliative access to 131I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (131I-MIBG).
131-I-MIBG Therapy for Refractory Neuroblastoma, Expanded Access Protocol
Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) is a substance that is taken up by neuroblastoma cells. MIBG is combined with radioactive iodine (131 I) in the laboratory to form a radioactive compound 131 I-MIBG. This radioactive compound delivers radiation specifically to the cancer cells and causes them to die. The purpose of this research protocol provides a mechanism to deliver MIBG therapy when clinically indicated, but also to provide a mechanism to continue to collect efficacy and toxicity data that will be provided. A recent New Approaches to Neuroblastoma Therapy (NANT) phase 2 randomized trial of 131I-MIBG with or without...
131I-omburtamab for the Treatment of Central Nervous System/Leptomeningeal Neoplasms in Children and Young Adults
The researchers are doing this study to provide access to treatment with 131I-omburtamab for children and young adults who have CNS/leptomeningeal neoplasms. 131I-omburtamab is an investigational drug; the FDA has not approved it to treat this cancer or any other disease. However, the agency has granted the drug Breakthrough Therapy Designation for the treatment of neuroblastoma with CNS metastases.
A Cohort IND Expanded Access Program for Supporting Patient Access to Tebentafusp
This Expanded Access Program aims to: 1. Provide access to tebentafusp for mUM patients. 2. Provide access to tebentafusp for patients, who were on the control arm of the randomized controlled Phase II trial (IMCgp100-202) and were unable to crossover during the specified window. 3. Ensure that patients, who are benefiting from tebentafusp treatment while participating in an ongoing Immunocore sponsored clinical study (e.g., IMCgp100-102 or IMCgp100-201), may continue tebentafusp treatment on this Programme once the ongoing trial has met all of its key primary and secondary objectives.
A Compassionate Use/Expanded Access Protocol Using 131I-MIBG Therapy for Patients With Refractory Neuroblastoma and Metastatic Pheochromocytoma
This is an expanded access protocol/compassionate use single institution study designed to determine the palliative benefit and toxicity of 131I-MIBG in patients with progressive neuroblastoma and metastatic pheochromocytoma who are not eligible for therapies of higher priority. Response rate, toxicity, and time to progression and death will be evaluated.
