This study looks at dose escalation for five fraction stereotactic radiotherapy for patients diagnosed with brain metastases with tumors 2.1-4.0 cm in diameter or 4.1-6.0 cm in diameter.
Almonertinib is a three-generation epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor(EGFR-TKI), which has shown competitive potential in the second-line treatment against first-generation TKIs. This study aims to explore the efficacy and safety of different doses of almonertinib in the first-line and second-line treatment of brain metastases/meningeal metastases in NSCLC patients.
The goals of this study are to: 1. To improve upon and develop new innovative magnetic resonance imaging techniques that refine image quality and enhance performance. Improvements in these areas will have positive implications for medical diagnosis and treatment. 2. To correlate MRI images with underlying disease pathophysiology in order to ensure that imaging accurately reflects the disease process.
The goal of this prospective, non-randomized, single-arm, feasibility study is to develop data to evaluate the safety and feasibility of ExAblate 4000 treatment of benign intracranial tumors which require clinical intervention in pediatric and young adult subjects. Indication of Use: Ablation of benign intracranial tumors in children and young adults which are ExAblate accessible.
First-in-human study to assess safety, tolerability, PK, and preliminary activity of PF-07284890 as a single agent and in combination with binimetinib in participants with BRAF V600-mutated advanced solid tumor malignancies with and without brain involvement.
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.
In this Phase I clinical study, the investigators plan to offer investigational treatment with the novel JAK2/STAT3 inhibitor WP1066 (Moleculin Biotech, Inc.) to pediatric patients with any progressive or recurrent malignant brain tumor that is refractory to standard treatment and is without known cure.
The survival interval of patients with gliomas ranges between 12 to 15 months. Recent findings revealed that dietary interventions to reduce glucose and glycolytic pathways could have a therapeutic effect. Ketosis can be an effective therapy to extend the survival of patients with gliomas.
According to literature reports, about 16.3%-19% of newly diagnosed NSCLC patients are associated with brain metastasis, and 30%-50% of NSCLC patients will develop brain metastasis during the whole course of the disease. Patients with EGFR positive-type had a 10-15% higher risk of brain metastasis than patients with EGFR wild-type. mOS in patients with EGFR positive were twice as high as those with EGFR wild-type, despite the presence of brain metastasis. Improving the control rate of intracranial lesions in patients with EGFR positive can not only improve the quality of life, but also may translate into survival benefits and...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and tolerability of the research study drugs nivolumab, ipilimumab, lomustine, bevacizumab, and temozolomide 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 study drug combinations. - Evaluate any preliminary evidence of anticancer activity of study drug combinations . - Evaluate tumor characteristics by collecting brain tumor tissue samples. - Measure the amount of nivolumab and ipilimumab...
