The study is being done to test the safety of a cancer drug called larotrectinib in children. The cancer must have a change in a particular gene (NTRK1, NTRK2 or NTRK3). Larotrectinib blocks the actions of these NTRK genes in cancer cells and can therefore be used to treat cancer. The first study part (Phase 1) is done to determine what dose level of larotrectinib is safe for children, how the drug is absorbed and changed by their bodies and how well the cancer responds to the drug. The main purpose of the second study part (Phase 2) is to investigate how well and how long different cancer types respond to the treatment with...
this research study is evaluating the highest dose of ASTX727 that can be administered safely to recurrent/progressive non-enhancing IDH mutant gliomas patients.
This protocol is for a lead-in safety study of 5 patients followed by a randomized Phase 2 clinical trial of BMX-001, a new class of pharmaceutical, in 64 patients with multiple brain metastases (MBM) undergoing whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT). Preliminary studies have demonstrated that BMX-001 provides protection of normal tissues from radiation-induced injury and augments tumor growth inhibition.
This phase I/II trial is designed to study the side effects, best dose and efficacy of adding hydroxychloroquine to dabrafenib and/or trametinib in children with low grade or high grade brain tumors previously treated with similar drugs that did not respond completely (progressive) or tumors that came back while receiving a similar agent (recurrent). Patients must also have specific genetic mutations including BRAF V600 mutations or BRAF fusion/duplication, with or without neurofibromatosis type 1. Neurofibromatosis type 1 is an inherited genetic condition that causes tumors to grow on nerve tissue. Hydroxychloroquine, works in...
This research study is studying radiation therapy as a possible treatment for meningioma or tumor on the lining of the brain. The study drug or intervention involved in this research study is Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT)
A Phase II, Open-label, Single Arm Trial of Pembrolizumab for Refractory Atypical and Anaplastic Meningioma
This is a standard of care treatment guideline for high risk or relapsed solid tumors or CNS tumors consisting of a busulfan, melphalan, thiotepa conditioning (for solid tumors) or carboplatin and thiotepa conditioning (for CNS tumors) followed by an autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplant. For solid tumors, if appropriate, disease specific radiation therapy at day +60. For CNS tumors, the conditioning regimen and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplant will be given for 3 cycles.
The study will assess the immunogenicity, safety and preliminary clinical efficacy of the glioma associated antigen (GAA)/tetanus toxoid (TT) peptide vaccine and poly-ICLC in HLA-A2+ children with unresectable low-grade gliomas that have received at least two chemotherapy/biologic regimens. Radiation therapy counts as one biologic regimen, but patients may not have received radiation to the index lesion within 1 year of enrollment.
This phase II trial studies the effect of avapritinib in treating malignant solid tumors that have a genetic change (mutation) in CKIT or PDGFRA and have spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced) or other places in the body (metastatic). Avapritinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Avapritinib may help to control the growth of malignant solid tumors.
This study is to find a safe dose of the combination of Avelumab and Whole Brain Radiotherapy (WBRT) in patients with Leptomeningeal Disease.
