Children with a neuroblastoma diagnose and central nervous system (CNS)/leptomeningeal metastases will be given up to 2 rounds of intracerebroventricular treatment with a radiolabelled monoclonal antibody, 131I-omburtamab to evaluate efficacy and safety
Adults with leptomeningeal metastasis from solid tumors will be treated with 177Lu-DTPA-omburtamab, which is a radioactive labelling of a murine monoclonal antibody targeting B7-H3.
Children and adolescents diagnosed with medullablastoma and with recurrent or refractory to frontline therapy will be treated with 177Lu-DTPA-omburtamab, which is a radioactive labelling of a murine monoclonal antibody targeting B7-H3.
The hypothesis of this exploratory clinical trial in patients with high-grade a primary brain tumor who receive chemoradiation is that the PET imaging agents [18F]Fluciclovine and/or [18F]FLT will be a better predictor of tumor response than standard MRI based brain tumor response criteria. When used in conjunction, the two PET agents may be better able to predict tumor aggressiveness and thus overall survival than the use of individual-tracer PET biomarkers. This may eventually lead to improved assessment of response (including time to progression and overall survival) and differentiation of tumor recurrence/progression from treatment...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the use of the investigational agent Axumin (fluciclovine-F18) with PET/CT imaging in combination with standard MR imaging to detect remaining or recurrent brain tumor.
This phase I trial studies the ability and amount of fluciclovine positron emission tomography (PET) imaging needed to recognize tumors that have come back (recurrence) after brain injury from radiation therapy (radionecrosis) in patients with intracranial disease that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). F-18 fluciclovine is a radiotracer that works by accumulating in tumor cells, making it easier to detect tumors. The results of this study may also help investigators understand all the ways that F-18 fluciclovine may affect patients.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether 18F-fluciclovine PET/CT of the brain, is able to distinguish radiation necrosis from tumor progression in cases where MRI is inconclusive. 18F-fluciclovine is an FDA approved radioactive diagnostic agent and is injected into the participant and then taken up by cancer cells, which can then be visualized with a PET/CT scan. 18F-fluciclovine is FDA approved for the detection of recurrent prostate cancer, but is still investigational for the purposes of this study.
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) PET imaging, may help find and diagnose cancer. It may also help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying FLT PET imaging in patients with cancer.
This is a single site, investigator initiated study that aims to explore the feasibility of using a personalized 3D printed immobilization mask for CNS patients undergoing radiation therapy. For the purpose of this study, patients will undergo the standard CT SIM, and MR SIM necessary for radiation therapy, creating the masks from the MRIs. Prior to the start of their treatment, patients will have an additional CT scan with the 3D printed mask to confirm safety and treatment accuracy. Patients will then proceed with their standard radiation therapy, immobilized with the mask. There will be a control group that will be treated with ...
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...
