Abemaciclib for Patients With Retinoblastoma-Positive, Triple Negative Metastatic Breast Cancer
This research study is studying a drug called Abemaciclib as a possible treatment for have metastatic triple-negative type of breast cancer.
Abemaciclib in Children With DIPG or Recurrent/Refractory Solid Tumors
This is a Phase I clinical trial evaluating abemaciclib (LY2835219), an inhibitor of cyclin dependent-kinases 4 and 6 (Cdk 4/6) in children and young adults with newly diagnosed diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) (Stratum A) and in relapsed/refractory/progressive malignant brain (Grade III/IV, including DIPG; MBT) and solid tumor (ST) patients (Stratum B).
Abemaciclib in Patients With Oligodendroglioma
This is a phase II, single arm, open label study looking how well a drug called abemaciclib works in patients with recurrent oligodendroglioma
Abemaciclib in Treating Patients With Advanced, Refractory, and Unresectable Digestive System Neuroendocrine Tumors
This phase II trial studies how well abemaciclib works in treating patients with digestive system neuroendocrine tumors that have spread to other places in the body, do not respond to treatment, and cannot be removed by surgery. Abemaciclib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
ABI-009 (Nab-Rapamycin) in Recurrent High Grade Glioma and Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma
A Phase 2, Open-label Study of ABI-009 (nab-Rapamycin) in Bevacizumab-Naïve Subjects with Progressive High Grade Glioma Following Prior Therapy and Subjects with Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma. ABI-009 will be tested as single agent or in combination with standard therapies
A Biomarker Study in Advanced Mucosal or Acral Lentiginous Melanoma Receiving Nivolumab in Combination With Ipilimumab
Participants with advanced or metastatic mucosal melanoma (cohort A) and acral lentiginous melanoma (cohort B) eligible for treatment with nivolumab in combination with ipilimumab followed by nivolumab therapy will submit tissue blocks from tumors of malignant melanoma for histopathology review and immunohistochemistry analysis at Georgetown University-Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. Pretreatment blood will be drawn and stored in the Melanoma Research Foundation Breakthrough Consortium Virtual Repository at each participating institution. At the end of participation, samples will be sent to Georgetown University-Lombardi Comprehensive...
A Biospecimen Collection Study in BRAF-V600E Mutated Recurrent Gliomas
This is a surgical biospecimen collection study. The purpose of this study is to understand how much of two drugs (dabrafenib and trametinib) are able to penetrate brain tumors and turn off the RAF signaling pathway. This is important because these drugs are currently FDA approved for other tumors and may have efficacy in brain tumors with the BRAF V600E mutation.
A Cancer Research UK Trial of Anti-GD2 T-cells (1RG-CART)
The purpose of this first in human study is to determine the safety and feasibility of 1RG-CART therapy in patients with relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma. 1RG-CART therapy is a novel immunotherapy under investigation in which patients have their T-cells (a type of white blood cell) collected and modified in the laboratory, before they are given back to the patient. The T-cells are modified to express a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) which targets disialoganglioside (GD2), a marker expressed on the surface of neuroblastoma cells.
Accelerated Hypofractionated Intensity - Modulated Radiotherapy After Hyperbaric Oxygenation for Recurrent High Grade Glioma.
This is a pilot study of radiotherapy using Hypofractionated image - guided helical tomotherapy after hyperbaric oxygen HBO therapy for treatment of recurrent malignant High-grade gliomas. HBO therapy will be perform in conjunction with each RT session. The treatment scheme is: Hyperbaric oxygenation therapy (the maximum period of time from completion of decompression to RT is 60 min) followed by tomotherapy (3-5 consecutive sessions- one fraction per day , 5 Gy / die ). The trial will enroll 24 patients in 24 months with a follow-up period of 1 year.
A Clinical and Molecular Risk-Directed Therapy for Newly Diagnosed Medulloblastoma
Historically, medulloblastoma treatment has been determined by the amount of leftover disease present after surgery, also known as clinical risk (standard vs. high risk). Recent studies have shown that medulloblastoma is made up of distinct molecular subgroups which respond differently to treatment. This suggests that clinical risk alone is not adequate to identify actual risk of recurrence. In order to address this, we will stratify medulloblastoma treatment in this phase II clinical trial based on both clinical risk (low, standard, intermediate, or high risk) and molecular subtype (WNT, SHH, or Non-WNT Non-SHH). This stratified clinical...
