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 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 a single-arm, single-center pilot study in which 10 patients with one to four brain metastases diagnosed on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) within the past 30 days will be evaluated for study eligibility and enrolled as appropriate.
The primary objective of the study is to create a biobank of oral smears permitting to identify the genetic locus/loci associated with an increased risk to develop meningiomas after cyproterone acetate (CPA) (Androcur®) treatment, using a GWAS approach As the secondary objectives, the study aims: - to evaluate the importance of the genetic susceptibility. - to record the frequence of homonodependant cancers occuring in female patients with Androcur® associated meningioma and in their first-degree relatives. - to describe clinical, radiological, histological characteristics of the patients who have developed...
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.
This trial investigates how well 7T MRI scan works in imaging central nervous system tumors. Diagnostic procedures, such as 7T MRI, may help find and diagnose central nervous system tumors and help measure a patient's response to earlier treatment. The goal of this trial is to learn if a new MRI system can provide better quality images than a standard MRI.
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...
