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.
A Phase II Study of Nivolumab with Ipilimumab and Cabozantinib in Patients with Untreated Renal Cell Carcinoma Brain Metastases
This is a phase II, prospective, longitudinal, multi-center trial of poly-ICLC (Hiltonol ®) treatment for progressive low-grade gliomas in pediatric patients with NF1. The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy of poly-ICLC in pediatric NF1 patients with progressive low-grade glioma (LGG) as measured by objective tumor response rate (CR+PR) within the first 48 weeks (12 cycles) of therapy. There will also be secondary and exploratory objectives listed in the detailed description below.
Almonertinib is a three-generation epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor(EGFR-TKI), which has shown competitive potential in the second-line treatment against first-generation TKIs. This study intends to assess the efficacy and safety of stereotactic radiosurgery with sequential almonertinib in treatment-naive EGFR-mutant NSCLC patients with brain metastases.
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.
Patients will receive a vaccine called SurVaxM on this study. While vaccines are usually thought of as ways to prevent diseases, vaccines can also be used to treat cancer. SurVaxM is designed to tell the body's immune system to look for tumor cells that express a protein called survivin and destroy them. The survivin protein can be found on up to 95% of glioblastomas and other types of cancer but is not found in normal cells. If the body's immune system knows to destroy cells that express survivin, it may help to control tumor growth and recurrence. SurVaxM will be mixed with Montanide ISA 51 before it is given. Montanide ISA 51 is...
Arterial spin labeling (ASL) is a non-invasive MRI technique that could help the radiologists to distinguish brain metastasis progression versus radionecrosis following gamma-knife treatment. The primary target of the study is to establish the diagnostic performances (specificity, sensitivity) of quantitative measures of ASL in brain metastases suspected of progression/radionecrosis after GK treatment
The spread of cancer to the brain is referred to as brain metastases. Brain metastases are a common complication of cancer. This study is being done to determine whether the use of a new imaging agent, 18F-fluciclovine, is able to detect which patients are responding to radiation therapy. In addition, this study will look at the changes of the treated brain metastases using this imaging agent over time.
This is a Phase 1/2, multicenter, open-label trial of avapritinib in patients aged 2 to less than 18 years of age with with relapsed/refractory (R/R) solid tumors with mutations (including non-synonymous point mutations, insertions, and deletions) in KIT or PDGFRA, or gliomas with the H3K27M mutation, and no available alternative treatment options. This is a single-arm trial in which all patients will receive avapritinib. The study consists of 2 parts: dose confirmation, safety, and PK (Part 1) and initial efficacy, safety, and PK at the Part 2 recommended dose (Part 2).
The purpose of this study is to first, in Part A, assess the safety, tolerability and drug levels of Bempegaldesleukin (BEMPEG) in combination with nivolumab and then, in Part B, to estimate the preliminary efficacy in children, adolescents and young adults with recurrent or treatment-resistant cancer.
