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, a lymph node, and tumor samples.
A Collection of Clinical and Epidemiologic Data Combined With Tissue and Blood From Patients With a Diagnosis of Neuroendocrine Tumors
The purpose of this study is to establish a neuroendocrine tumor registry. A registry is a collection of information. To create this registry, the investigators would like to get information, blood and tumor samples from people with neuroendocrine tumors. By collecting this information and material, the investigators are hoping to learn more about the genetic causes of neuroendocrine tumors. All of this will help us to better understand neuroendocrine cancer, so the investigators can find better ways to treat and diagnose this disease. DNA will be taken from the blood samples and will be used in future studies. This will be an important...
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 allows...
A Comparison of the Effect of 1.5 Versus 3% NaCl on Brain Relaxation and Microcirculation
Hyperosmotic solutions of 1.5% and 3% NaCl are equally effective for brain relaxation and microcirculation during brain surgery. The effect of 1.5% NaCl on postoperative natremia and natriuresis is less pronounced.
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.
Acoustic Neuroma: Assessing the Quality of Life by the Scale PANQOL of Patients Operated or Supervised
This study has investigated the quality of life of patients with vestibular schwannoma using this specific scale prospectively, whether treated surgically or monitored.
Activated T Cells Armed With GD2 Bispecific Antibody in Children and Young Adults With Neuroblastoma and Osteosarcoma
Previous research has demonstrated that investigators can coat (arm) T cells with a special molecule called GD2 bispecific antibody that will help T cells recognize neuroblastoma and osteosarcoma cells and kill them. This bispecific antibody recognizes GD2, a protein found on almost all neuroblastoma and osteosarcoma cells. The investigators put the GD2 bispecific antibody on T cells and give large numbers of these T cells back to patients. The investigators think that these T cells may have a better chance of killing GD2 expressing tumor cells when they are armed with GD2 bispecific antibody. This trial studies the side effects and best...
Activity Study of Bevacizumab With Temozolomide ± Irinotecan for Neuroblastoma in Children
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether Bevacizumab (an anti-VEGF monoclonal antibody) added to a backbone chemotherapy regimen (Temozolomide, Irinotecan-Temozolomide or Topotecan-Temozolomide) demonstrates activity in children with relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma. Also, to investigate whether the addition of Irinotecan or Topotecan to Temozolomide increases the activity of chemotherapy.The primary objective of the study is the best response (Complete Response or Partial Response) while trial treatment, within 18 or 24 weeks depending on the arm of the trial the participant is randomised to. Secondary endpoints are...
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.
Adaptive Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI) Therapy In Patients With Thyroid Cancer
Participants will have been diagnosed with advanced progressive thyroid cancer and are about to start treatment with a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy (Lenvatinib or Sorafenib for differentiated thyroid cancer [which includes papillary thyroid cancer, follicular thyroid cancer, and poorly differentiated thyroid cancer]; and Cabozantinib or Vandetanib for medullary thyroid cancer) through adaptive (intermittent) versus conventional (continuous) regimen.
