This is a multi-center, single-arm, open-label, Phase 2 clinical study of Dacomitinib for EGFR Mutated Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) With Brain Metastases.
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.
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 given with...
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 gliomas....
5-Aminolevulinic Acid (5-ALA) was approved by the FDA as an intraoperative optical imaging agent in patients with suspected high-grade gliomas (HGGs) in 2017. The investigators plan to administer 5-ALA to patients with pituitary tumors to demonstrate whether it can be used as an intraoperative optical imaging agent for this pathology. Overall, this pilot study will afford the overall opportunity to improve surgical management and advancement of the science of neurological and neuroendocrine disease.
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.
