This is a short-term validation study of a quality of life metric "Prolac-10" for patients diagnosed with a prolactinoma, undergoing new medical therapy.
This study investigates the pre-clinical nano-based analgesics in cells from human dorsal root ganglia (clusters of neurons). Collecting these neurons may help future research related to safe and effective pain treatment.
This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well vemurafenib works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with BRAF V600 mutations that have spread to other places in the body (advanced) and have come back (recurrent) or do not respond to treatment (refractory). Vemurafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
This is a phase II, open label, non-randomised study of vemurafenib and cobimetinib after radiosurgery in adult patients with BRAFV600-mutant melanoma brain metastases. All patients will receive vemurafenib 960 mg twice a day on days 1 - 28 combined with cobimetinib 60 mg once a day on days 1 - 21 of each 28-day treatment cycle until disease progression, drug toxicity or death. The primary objective of this study is to determine the best overall response rate (BORR) in the brain. The extracranial BORR, intra- and extracranial duration of response, progression-free survival and overall survival, adverse events, quality of life and...
This trial studies the feasibility of using intensity modulated proton therapy to deliver craniospinal irradiation while avoiding the bones of the vertebral column. Intensity modulated proton therapy is an advanced radiation therapy modality that uses high energy protons to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors, and may reduce the side effects of treatment by reducing radiation exposure to the spinal column.
This is a prospective, observational registry in patients who have been prescribed Gliadel Wafer by the physician as part of usual care.
This is an open-label, randomized, multi-center, comparator Phase II trial looking at the addition of Bevacizumab to Vinblastine in chemotherapy naïve pediatric patients with progressive Low Grade Glioma aged 6 months to less than18 years of age at the time of initiation of therapy. Participants will be randomized to Arm A or Arm B. Arm A includes 68 weeks of single agent Vinblastine administered once weekly IV. Arm B includes 68 weeks of Vinblastine administered weekly IV with the addition of 12 doses of Bevacizumab administered every two weeks IV for the initial 24 weeks. Randomization will take place at the time of registration taking...
This research study is studying a chemotherapy as a possible treatment for Meningiomas (recurrent). The study intervention involved in this study is: --AZD2014 (vistusertib)
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of volitinib in treating participants with primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors that have come back (recurrent) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Volitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
Patients suffering from small cell lung cancer (SCLC) are at high risk for developing brain metastases (BM). To prevent a clinical manifestation of preexisting microscopic brain dissemination, prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) is offered to both limited and extensive disease patients, if they respond to first line regime, thus being at risk or at chance to develop clinical brain metastases. However, up to 10-15% of patients present with BM at initial diagnosis. If MRI is used as a diagnostic tool for initial staging the number even increases up to 15-20%. Additionally, between 40 - 50% of patients develop BM until time of death and the...
