This is an open-label, multicenter, global Phase 2 basket study of entrectinib (RXDX-101) for the treatment of patients with solid tumors that harbor an NTRK1/2/3, ROS1, or ALK gene fusion. Patients will be assigned to different baskets according to tumor type and gene fusion.
This study uses bi-specific antibody (HER2Bi) armed activated T-cells (HER2 BATs) to target breast cancer cells that have metastasized to the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. This is known as leptomeningeal metastases. Two doses will be evaluated in order to determine a safe dose. Study treatment includes a test dose of HER2 BATs followed by 8 weekly infusions of HER2 BATs at the assigned dose level. Before, during and after study treatment, participants will be monitored objectively by brain MRIs and clinically through physical and neurological exams, and blood and cerebrospinal fluid will be collected to evaluate...
This phase II trial studies how well bevacizumab and atezolizumab with or without cobimetinib work in treating patients with untreated melanoma that has spread to the brain (brain metastases). Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab and atezolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Cobimetinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known if giving bevacizumab and atezolizumab with or without cobimetinib will work better in treating patients with melanoma brain metastases.
This Phase II randomized study is to determine the efficacy and safety of Bevacizumab combined with fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy(FSRT) in patients with 1 to 10 brain metastases in non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer by assessing the treatment response, perilesional edema, neurological symptoms and quality of life.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of BGB-290 and temozolomide in treating adolescents and young adults with IDH1/2-mutant grade I-IV glioma that is newly diagnosed or has come back. BGB-290 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving BGB-290 and temozolomide may work better in treating adolescents and young adults with IDH1/2-mutant grade I-IV glioma.
Methodology: Prospective, multicentric, open, non-randomised, non-therapeutic, interventional study
This pilot research trial studies blood brain barrier differences in patients with brain tumors undergoing surgery. Studying samples of tissue and blood from patients with brain tumors in the laboratory may help doctors to understand how well drugs get into different parts of a brain tumor. This may help them to determine which types of drugs may be best for treating brain tumors.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of BBB disruption using the ExAblate 4000-system Type 2 in patients with Her-2 positive breast cancer metastases in the brain.
During a brain surgery targeted to remove a brain tumor, the neurosurgeon wakes up the patient to delimit the tumor area exactly, and identify the surrounding areas, to limit the surgery damages. The present project aims at testing the patient in this awake phase to determine the brain areas implied in time to contact (TTC) perception, a function that allows determining the arrival time of moving objects and used in many tasks of our daily life.
Background: Accessing brain tumor material for pathological diagnosis requires invasive procedures that carry risk to patients including brain hemorrhages and death. Liquid biopsies are emerging non-invasive alternatives to direct tumour biopsies but the abundance of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) is relatively low and this limits our ability to accurately make the molecular diagnosis of brain tumors. We have recently shown promising results that suggest that the analysis of blood samples can distinguish brain tumor types. We now want to couple liquid biopsies with high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to enhance the release of...
