The purpose of this study is to test if PET scans using 89Zr-DFO-cRGDY-PEG-Cy5-C' dot particles, can be used to take pictures of brain tumors. The investigators want to understand how the particles are distributed and removed from the body, which may help others be treated in the future. This will be the first time that 89Zr-DFO-cRGDY-PEG-Cy5-C' dot particles are being used in people. The amount of particles given in this study is very small compared to the amount that was used in mice animal studies.
Removing a tumor from a patients brain is hard to do because, very often, brain tumors do not have boundaries that are easy for the patients surgeon to find. In many cases, the surgeon can't tell exactly where the tumor begins or ends. The surgeon usually can remove most of the patient's tumor by looking at the MRI images that were taken of the patient's brain before surgery. However, the surgeon does not have any good way to tell if the entire tumor has been removed or not. Removing the entire tumor is very important because leaving tumor behind may allow it to grow back which could decrease the chances of survival.
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and tolerability of the research study drugs nivolumab, ipilimumab, and bevacizumab when used following surgery and before standard therapy with radiation and temozolomide in patients with newly diagnosed high grade glioma. Additional aims of the study are to: - Find out side effects (good and bad) of nivolumab and ipilimumab with/without bevacizumab and/or temozolomide. - Evaluate any preliminary evidence of anticancer activity of nivolumab and ipilimumab with/without bevacizumab and/or temozolomide. - Evaluate tumor characteristics by collecting brain tumor...
This is a multicenter, interventional, prospective study among breast cancer patients with a suspicion of metastatic meningitis. The current study aims to assess the use of proteomic profile issued from cerebrospinal fluid microvesicles for diagnosis of leptomeningeal metastases.
This is an open-label Phase 3 study to see if ANG1005 can prolong survival compared to a Physician Best Choice control in HER2-negative breast cancer patients with newly diagnosed leptomeningeal disease and previously treated brain metastases.
To provide DFMO in an expanded use setting to subjects with relapsed rare tumors with increased LIN28 expression or MYCN amplification or up regulation of ornithine decarboxylase.
The study is designed to use infusion of a non-radioactive, naturally occurring isotope of glucose (13C) in patients undergoing surgical resection for a newly identified brain mass to obtain the metabolic phenotype of the tumor, and correlate it with the histopathological diagnosis. In each patient, 13C NMR spectral analysis of tumor extracts will be obtained after intraoperative infusion of [U-13C]glucose or [1,2-13C]glucose. Whenever feasible, patients will undergo 3 preoperative imaging studies - 18FDG-PET, diffusion tensor imaging with 1H-spectroscopy on 3T MR scanner, and ultra high resolution MR imaging on the 7T MR scanner. The...
This research study is studying targeted immunotherapies as a possible treatment for recurrent meningioma. The names of the study interventions involved in this study are nivolumab and ipilimumab.
This is a multicenter, randomized open-label Phase 2 study to assess the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetic (PK) of 2 dosing regimens of encorafenib + binimetinib combination in patients with BRAFV600-mutant melanoma with brain metastasis. Approximately 100 patients will be enrolled, including 9 patients in a Safety Lead-in of the high-dose treatment arm. After a Screening Period, treatment will be administered in 28-day cycles and will continue until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, start of subsequent anticancer therapy, death.
The purpose of this research study is to determine whether taking either of two low dose drugs that would prevent new blood vessels from growing after stem cell transplant is feasible, and what the side effects of taking each of these drugs after autologous transplant might be. The reason the investigators are looking at these drugs is because one of the things that allows tumors to grow quickly is their ability to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels. By suppressing the growth of new blood vessels after stem cell transplant, the investigators hope to prevent the tumors from coming back or continuing to grow.
