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.
Abemaciclib + Pembrolizumab In Glioblastoma
This research study is studying a combination therapy as a possible treatment for recurrent glioblastoma (GBM), a brain tumor that is growing or progressing despite earlier treatment. This study will involve participants with recurrent glioblastoma at their first relapse enrolled in two arms including patients who require reoperation and patients not requiring surgery. This research study involves a combination of two drugs: - Pembrolizumab (MK3475) - Abemaciclib (LY2835219)
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 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 Brain Metastases Research Platform to Tackle the Challenge of CNS Metastases in Solid Tumours
Despite some encouraging data, systemic treatment of CNS metastases from solid tumors remains experimental. Better knowledge on the evolving epidemiology and biology of BM are key elements for the development of new treatment strategies and identification of promising therapeutic targets for new compounds. Further biological findings may help to better understand the heterogeneity between the primary tumor and the CNS metastases and to identify new targets for therapy thus improving patients' outcome. In this context, the Oncodistinct network and the Jules Bordet institute propose to build a multidisciplinary Brain Metastases...
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...
A Clinical Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of OrienX010 in Unresectable Malignant Melanoma Patients
This study is being performed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Dacarbazine and OrienX010 therapy in Untreated Patients With Unresectable Stage IIIb/IIIc or Stage IV(Mla/Mlb) Melanoma. The study will be conducted in about 6 centres in China and total 165 patients will be enrolled. All eligible Patients will be randomized between Dacarbazine and OrienX010 in a 1:2 ratio, so 1/3 (55) patients will receive the Dacarbazine and 2/3 (110) patients will receive the OrienX010. During the treatment phase, the patient will receive OrienX010 administration once biweekly or Dacarbazine once every 3 week until to the end of treatment (EOT)....
A Clinical Trial Evaluating the Efficacy of Valganciclovir in Glioblastoma Patients
This study is a multicenter randomized double-blinded controlled phase 2 study evaluating the efficacy and safety of the anti-CMV drug valganciclovir vs placebo as add-on therapy in patients with glioblastoma. Valganciclovir is approved for treatment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections, but may also have anti-tumoral effects. Current evidence imply that most glioblastomas are CMV positive and that the virus can affect tumor aggressiveness.
