This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of trametinib and everolimus in treating pediatric and young adult patients with low grade gliomas that has come back (recurrent). Trametinib acts by targeting a protein in cells called MEK and disrupting tumor growth. Everolimus is a drug that may block another pathway in tumor cells that can help tumors grow. Giving trametinib and everolimus may work better to treat low grade gliomas compared to trametinib or everolimus alone.
This is a phase 2, open-label, interventional clinical trial that will study the response rate of pediatric glioma and plexiform neurofibroma (PN) to oral administration of trametinib. Patients meeting all inclusion criteria for a given study group will receive the study medication at a daily dose of 0.025 mg/kg up to a total of 18 cycles, in 28-day cycles. A total of 150 patients will be recruited as part of this clinical study. Patients aged between 1 month (corrected age) and 25 years old will be eligible, in order to include a maximum of patients affected by low-grade glioma (LGG) and PN. This study includes four groups:...
This trial is to determine the effect of Tranexamic Acid (TXA) on blood loss during endoscopic pituitary surgery. The hypothesis of this study is that TXA will reduce blood loss during surgery compared to a placebo. To answer this hypothesis, the investigators are conducting a randomized controlled trial in which half of participants will receive TXA and half will receive placebo (saline) in a double blind fashion.
The aim of the project is to compare the effect of different extent of resection of the posterior part of the septum on the postoperative nasal functions.
Meningiomas are known to be the most frequent intracranial neoplasms and account for approx. 25-33% of all intracranial tumours.Targeted radionuclide therapy with radiolabelled somatostatin analogues, also called Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT), has proven to be an effective treatment in metastatic intestinal neuroendocrine tumours and is currently used in advanced, recurrent or progressive meningiomas with promising results. In this study, the therapeutic index of a standard and newly developed radiolabelled somatostatin antagonist will be evaluated and compared in PRRT. In a second step, safety and efficacy of the latter ...
This research study is investigating the value of an imaging study of the brain called an MRI (which stands for magnetic resonance imaging), utilized in unique way, to delineate whether the tumor has recurred or whether radiation changes have occurred after a brain metastasis treated with focused radiation has enlarged.
Background: - More children with cancer are surviving into adulthood. Some side effects from treatment go away quickly. But some problems may not go away or may only show up months or years later. These problems are called late effects. Late effects can cause difficulties in cognitive functions, such as attention and memory. Physical activity has been found to improve the attention and memory skills of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Researchers want to see if physical activity can help with these cognitive problems in children with brain tumors. Objectives: - To see if physical...
The 1635-EORTC-BTG study - Wait or Treat - concerns patients that represent a clinically favorable group of patients with IDHmutated astrocytoma (oligo-symptomatic), without a need for immediate post-operative treatment. It will establish whether early adjuvant treatment with radiotherapy and adjuvant temozolomide in resected IDHmutated astrocytoma will improve outcome, and whether benefits of early treatment outweigh potential side-effects of that, such as deterioration in neurocognitive function or Quality of Live, seizure activity and Patient Reported outcome compared to active surveillance.
This research study is evaluating a novel drug called CUDC-907 as a possible treatment for resistant (refractory) pediatric solid tumors (including neuroblastoma), lymphoma, or brain tumors.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of panobinostat in treating younger patients with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). Panobinostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Stratum 1 treats patients with DIPG that has returned or gotten worse (progressed). Stratum 2 treats patients with DIPG that has not yet gotten worse. Currently, only Stratum 2 is enrolling patients.
