This study is a prospective single-center clinical study, which aims to observe and evaluate the efficacy and safety of apatinib combined with temozolomide and oral etoposide in the treatment of recurrent medulloblastoma in children.
Apatinib mesylate may be an effective treatment for recurrent atypical/malignant meningioma. This prospective clinical study is now planned to verify the effectiveness and safety of apatinib mesylate in the treatment of relapsed atypical/malignant meningioma.
In this research study the investigators want to learn more about the safety of the study drug, PTC596 has when taken during radiation. The investigators also want to learn about the effects, if any, these drugs have on children and young adults with brain tumors. The investigators are asking people to be in this research study who have been diagnosed with a high grade glioma (HGG) including diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) to be in the research, because they have scheduled to have radiation to treat their cancer. The study is divided into two parts. The goal of the first part is to find the dose of PTC596 that can be...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics, and determine the maximum tolerated dose of ZSP1602 in participants with basal cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma of esophagogastric junction, small cell lung cancer, neuroendocrine neoplasm and other advanced solid tumors.
In this study the investigators will evaluate the effect of high-dose, intermittent sunitinib versus treatment with lomustine in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme. The investigators hypothesize that sunitinib, when given in a high-dose, intermittent schedule, will achieve adequate concentration levels in the tumor and will, besides its anti-angiogenic properties, inhibit gliomagenesis by inhibition of multiple kinases.
This is a study to determine the safety and efficacy of the drug, mebendazole, when used in combination with standard chemotherapy drugs for the treatment of pediatric brain tumors. Mebendazole is a drug used to treat infections with intestinal parasites and has a long track record of safety in humans. Recently, it was discovered that mebendazole may be effective in treating cancer as well, in particular brain tumors. Studies using both cell cultures and mouse models demonstrated that mebendazole was effective in decreasing the growth of brain tumor cells. This study focuses on the treatment of a category of brain tumors called...
The overall objective of this pilot study is to collect immunological and safety data following administration of vaccinations with HLA-A2. This data will be used to decide whether a larger study of clinical efficacy is warranted.
This research study is studying an immunotherapy as a possible treatment for Glioblastoma.
Whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) has long been a practical and effective therapeutic modality for various settings of management in radiation oncology. For example, the indications for WBRT should include brain metastasis or metastases, the setting of prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) used mainly for patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer, and even some patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer. The rationales for WBRT are essentially based on that it can target both microscopic and gross intracranial disease. In addition to providing rapid alleviation of neurologic symptoms and enhanced intracranial ...
Purpose of the study: AIM 1 Prospectively collect pre-operative (fMRI, DTI, MEG) and intra-operative mapping data in patients with intra-axial brain tumors to assess how well each modality predicts the location of eloquent brain function. In addition, each modality will be compared with the other. AIM 2 Assess reorganization of eloquent brain function and plasticity in patients with intra-axial brain tumors. This will be accomplished by prospectively collecting post-operative mapping studies and neuropsychological tests to compare them to prior mapping studies as stated above.
