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.
A Clinical Trial to Evaluate a Melanoma Helper Peptide Vaccine Plus Dabrafenib and Trametinib
This study evaluates whether it is safe to administer a helper peptide vaccine with dabrafenib and trametinib. This study will also evaluate the effects of the combination of the peptide vaccine and dabrafenib and trametinib on the immune system. We will monitor these effects by performing tests in the laboratory on participants' blood and tumor samples.
A Comparison of MRI Perfusion and FDG PET/CT to Distinguish Between Radiation Injury and Tumor Progression
This study will examine if MRI perfusion and PET/CT can tell growing tumor and radiation injury apart. MRI perfusion looks at the blood vessels in the tumor. PET/CT looks if the tumor cells are actively growing. The investigators will do these two tests and see which one is better. Patients will remain on study until the completion of either the MRI perfusion or PET/CT that are within 12 weeks of each other. After one of these scans, the patient will have no active interventions and will be off study. Optional: Restriction Spectrum Imaging (RSI) Sequence RSI sequence is an advanced way of looking at your brain. The scan...
Adaptive BRAF-MEK Inhibitor Therapy for Advanced BRAF Mutant Melanoma
This is a pilot study evaluating the feasibility of using adaptive intermittent dosing of vemurafenib and cobimetinib in BRAF mutant patients with elevated baseline lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). The purpose of this study is to determine whether an intermittent adaptive dosing of vemurafenib and cobimetinib may be superior to standard, continuous dosing with these study drugs.
ADCTA for Adjuvant Immunotherapy in Standard Treatment of Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM)
To confirm the result of previous Phase I/II and phase II clinical trials, this trial is to test the efficacy and safety of ADCTA immunotherapy plus the standard therapy in comparison with standard therapy alone in patients with recurrent GBM.
A Diagnostic Imaging Study of 64Cu-SARTATE Using PET on Patients With Known or Suspected Neuroendocrine Tumors (DISCO)
The purpose of this study is to assess the performance of imaging agent 64Cu-SARTATE in participants with known or suspected Gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) as a potential new way to help diagnose NETs.
ADI-PEG 20 Plus Radiotherapy and Temozolomide in Subjects With Glioblastoma Multiforme
Assess safety and tolerability of ADI-PEG 20 in combination with radiotherapy and Temozolomide in newly diagnosed GBM
Adjuvant Avelumab in Merkel Cell Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies how well avelumab works in treating patients with Merkel cell cancer that has spread to the lymph nodes and have undergone surgery and/or radiation therapy. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as avelumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
Adjuvant Dendritic Cell-immunotherapy Plus Temozolomide in Glioblastoma Patients
In this phase I/II trial, the primary objective is to determine overall and progression-free survival of patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma when autologous Wilms' tumor 1 (WT1) messenger (m)RNA-loaded dendritic cell (DC) vaccination is added to adjuvant temozolomide maintenance treatment following (sub)total resection and temozolomide-based chemoradiation.
Adjuvant Nivolumab Treatment in Stage II (IIA, IIB, IIC) High-risk Melanoma
Stage II patients with primary surgical treatment of cuMM are often at risk for recurrence of their disease. This risk may be reduced by adjuvant systemic treatment. Due to toxicities of adjuvant therapies the aim is to identify patients at high risk for relapse and to administer adjuvant treatment only to these patients. Thus an optimal balance between insufficient treatment vs. overtreatment has to be found. To define these patients a prognostic biomarker test will be used in addition to conventional AJCC staging. AJCC staging takes into account several prognostic factors. However, to subdivide stage II melanoma patients into...
