5 Fraction Stereotactic Radiosurgery With Temozolomide for Glioblastoma Multiforme
This investigation is not only to develop an improved radiation/temozolomide approach, but also develop a regimen with potential to form the basis of better combined therapy with immune based treatments.
67Cu-SARTATE™ Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy Administered to Pediatric Patients With High-Risk Neuroblastoma
The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 67Cu-SARTATE in pediatric patients with high-risk neuroblastoma.
68Ga-citrate PET/MR Imaging for Glioma
This is a prospective, Phase 2, single center, open-label study in adult patients with presumed WHO grade 3 or 4 glioma who will be undergoing surgical resection as standard of care. In some cases, patients will have had biopsy. Study participants will undergo 68Ga-citrate PET/MR prior to surgery.
[68 Ga]-DOTANOC PET/CT in GEP-NETs
Somatostatin receptors are overexpressed in GEP-NETs and can be visualized in vivo by radiolabeled somatostatin-analogs. During the last decades, conventional scintigraphy using 111In-DTPA-Octreotide (often named somatostatin receptor scintigraphy or SRS) was considered as the gold standard nuclear imaging technique in the evaluation of GEP-NETs. However, SRS may be suboptimal in this clinical setting because of the low intrinsic resolution of the technique and its selectivity for SST2 only. Its overall sensitivity is estimated to 60-70% (per lesion analysis), even when using the most recent SPECT-CT cameras. MRI have also a higher...
68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT in Neuroendocrine Tumor
Somatostatin receptor(SSTR) was expressed in neuroendocrine tumor cells and SSTR-targeting molecular imaging(68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT) could be a promising technique to evaluate the primary tumor and metastatic lesions of neuroendocrine tumors with higher accuracy. This prospective study is going to investigate whether radiolabeled somatostatin analogs 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT may be valuable for diagnosis, risk stratification, and prognostic evaluation of neuroendocrine tumors and compared it with 18F-FDG PET/CT.
68Ga-DOTATATE PET for Management of Neuroendocrine Tumors
This is a research study to collect information regarding usefulness of positron emission tomography (PET) scans using a special dye called 68Ga-DOTATATE for patients with neuroendocrine tumours by determining the number of of patients whose clinical management was changed as a result of the scans.
68-Ga DOTATATE PET/MRI in the Diagnosis and Management of Somatostatin Receptor Positive CNS Tumors.
The study population consists of patients who undergo resection for somatostatin receptor-positive (SSTR-positive) CNS tumors, focusing on meningioma, and including esthesioneuroblastoma, hemangioblastoma, medulloblastoma, paraganglioma, pituitary adenoma, and SSTR-positive systemic cancers metastatic to the brain, such as small cell carcinoma of the lung. The study indication is to determine the diagnostic utility of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/MRI in the diagnosis and management of patients with SSTR-positive CNS tumors, specifically whether 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/MRI demonstrates utility distinguishing between tumor recurrence and post-treatment...
90Yttrium Colloid for the Treatment of Cystic Sellar/Parasellar Tumors
There is no consensus in the literature on the best way to treat cystic lesions of the pituitary area. Patients who are symptomatic from these tumours are rare. The cystic form of tumours present special challenges since traditional treatment modalities (surgery and/or external radiation) are often not able to completely remove or treat the cyst wall without major morbidity or even mortality. There is no 'best practice' for the treatment of cystic tumours per se. Treatments available to patients with cystic sellar/parasellar tumours include conservative management using a 'wait and scan' approach, cyst drainage, and cyst removal via...
9-ING-41 in Patients With Advanced Cancers
GSK-3β is a potentially important therapeutic target in human malignancies. The Actuate 1801 Phase 1/2 study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 9-ING-41, a potent GSK-3β inhibitor, as a single agent and in combination with cytotoxic agents, in patients with refractory cancers.
Abbreviated MAPK Targeted Therapy Plus Pembrolizumab in Melanoma
This research study is studying a combination of drugs as a possible treatment for unresectable or metastatic melanoma. The drugs involved in this study are: - Pembrolizumab (Keytruda) - Trametinib (Mekinist) - Dabrafenib (Tafinlar)
