The study's purpose is to see if the drug abemaciclib is safe and effective in combination with temozolomide and irinotecan (Part A) and abemaciclib in combination with temozolomide (Part B) in pediatric and young adult participants with relapsed/refractory solid tumors.
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).
This study will evaluate the safety of BXQ-350 and determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) in children with newly diagnosed DIPG or DMG. All patients will receive BXQ-350 by intravenous (IV) infusion and radiation therapy. The study is divided into two parts: Part 1 will enroll patients at increasing dose levels of BXQ-350 in order to determine the MTD. Part 2 will enroll patients requiring a biopsy in order to assess BXQ-350 concentrations in the biopsied tumor.
This study will expand the types of pediatric cancers being evaluated for response to cabozantinib. The current COG study is restricted to Ewing sarcoma, osteosarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, Wilms tumor, and a handful of uncommon tumors. The proposed study will extend this evaluation to tumors that have been shown to either express known targets of cabozantinib or with preclinical evidence of efficacy. These include neuroblastoma, high-grade gliomas, diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas and other high-grade brain tumors, and germ cell tumors. These tumors have high morbidity and mortality, particularly in the relapse setting, and few or no...
The researchers are doing this study to find out whether deferoxamine (DFO) given intrathecally (directly into the CSF) is a safe treatment for people with leptomeningeal metastasis from solid tumor cancer. The researchers will test different doses of DFO to find the highest dose that causes few or mild side effects. When the dose is found, they will test it in future participants to see whether DFO is a safe and effective treatment for people with leptomeningeal metastasis from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). They are also doing this study to see how the body absorbs, distributes, gets rid of, and responds to DFO.
This study is being done for the following reasons: The study has two parts. The purpose of the first part (Phase I) of the study is to find out the highest dose of Afatinib that can be given safely with T-DM1. The purpose of the second part of the study (Phase II) is to find out whether the dose of Afatinib with T-DM1 determined in Phase I will keep breast cancer from getting worse for a period of time.
The researchers are doing this study to find out if there are differences in the resting state brain networks of children and young adults (ages 6-21) after treatment with proton beam radiation therapy (PBRT). The researchers will use resting state functional connectivity magnetic resonance imagining (rs-fcMRI) scanning to detect these differences. The researchers will also check for differences in participants' thinking and quality of life through a cognitive assessment and a questionnaire. Both people undergoing PBRT for a brain tumor and healthy people will take part in this study so that the researchers can compare the brain ...
In this study, the investigators are testing improvement in survival outcomes in DIPG patients when stratified with MR perfusion score and treated with the said protocol. Newly diagnosed DIPG patients will undergo MRI perfusion study in addition to the usual MRI at diagnosis and will be stratified into hyperperfused or hypoperfused tumours. The hyperperfused patients will receive additional low dose Bevacizumab weekly with conventional standard radiotherapy. The hypo-perfused patients will receive ultra-low-dose radiotherapy fractionation equivalent to conventional RT biological dose.
This study will be a non-randomized phase II trial for patients with one to six brain metastases, at least one of which is appropriate for surgical resection. Upon registration, patients will be assigned to receive neo-adjuvant stereotactic radiosurgery (NASRS).
This is an open-label, multi-center Phase 1/2 study of oral LOXO-292 in pediatric participants with an activating rearranged during transfection (RET) alteration and an advanced solid or primary CNS tumor.
