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.
Growth hormone secreting pituitary adenomas(GHomas) produce excessive GH, stimulating excessive insulin like growth factor 1(IGF-1) synthesis in the liver, thus causing multiple systemic complications. The life expectancy of patients with untreated GHomas is shortened by ten years. The treatment goal of GHomas is to shrink the tumor volume and normalize GH and IGF-1. Under current treatment, only 50-70% of patients get remission. Rosiglitazone is a widely used oral antidiabetic medicine. The investigator's preliminary data showed that rosiglitazone decreased the synthesis of GH and IGF-1 in rat pituitary tumor cells GH3 and hepatocytes...
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of APN401 in treating patients with pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, or other solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body or have come back. APN401 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
Main Outcome: To assess the effectiveness of new intraoperative technologies in the resection of intracranial tumors. Design: Prospective observational study. Method: Prospective observational study of the use and effectiveness of intraoperative neuronavigation ultrasound, intraoperative tractography, intraoperative fluorescence, advanced neuronavigation and intraoperative neurophysiology in the resection of intracranial supratentorial tumors. Number of patients: 70 - 100. Duration of the study: 3 years. Ethical considerations: The study will be carried out following the international ethical recommendations for...
The primary purpose of this study is to compare the positive rate between the cell-free DNA and cytological examination of cerebrospinal fluid in Advanced lung cancer with leptomeningeal metastases.
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 disease...
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety, tolerability, and preliminary efficacy of INCAGN02390 in participants with select advanced malignancies.
By utilizing fitness trackers, this study aims to demonstrate that a simple walking program improves patients' ability to tolerate curative concurrent chemoradiotherapy without treatment interruption.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic study that makes pictures of organs of the body using magnetic field and radio frequency pulses that can not be felt. The purpose of this study is to determine if new imaging methods can help tumor evaluation in the brain. The extra images will be obtained using diffusion and perfusion MRI techniques to assess early treatment response in patients with brain metastasis, and will be compared to methods currently being used.
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.
