Phase I Trial of Intramural Injection of DTI-015 for Recurrent Malignant Gliomas

2014-07-24 14:34:09 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a clinical research study of a new investigational treatment for cancer called "DTI-015" to be given by intratumoral injection. Intratumoral injection is when drug is injected directly into the tumor. This study will help doctors find out what is the best dose level for DTI-015 and if this treatment can shrink tumors without causing severe side effects. The effects of the drug on the patient's quality of life (how the patient feels and what the patient can do) and their mental functions (reasoning and thinking abilities) will also be studied.

131-I-TM-601 Study in Adults With Recurrent High-Grade Glioma

This drug is being developed to treat a type of brain cancer, glioma. This study was developed to evaluate the safety, time to disease progression and survival rates after treatment.

Seizure Treatment in Glioma

Currently, treatment with a specific anti-epileptic drug mainly depends on the physicians' preference, as there are no studiessupporting the use of one specific anticonvulsant in glioma pa...

Phase IIa Safety and Light Dose-Escalation Study in Patients With Primary or Recurrent/High-Grade Glioma Using the Litx™ System to Confirm the Zone of Tumor Destruction During the Intraoperative Treatment of Glioma

The pupose of this study is to demonstrate the safety of the Litx™ therapy and confirm the zone of tumor destruction with escalated light doses following intraoperative treatment of prim...

68Ga-citrate PET/MR Imaging for Glioma

This is a prospective, Phase 2, single center, open-label study in adult patients with presumed WHO grade 3 or 4 glioma who will be undergoing surgical resection as standard of care. In so...

ANG1005 in Patients With Recurrent High-Grade Glioma

This is a Phase 2 study to see if an investigational drug, ANG1005, can shrink tumor cells in patients with high-grade glioma. Another purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy, safe...

Anti-glioma Efficacy and Mechanism of Action of Tripolinolate A from Tripolium pannonicum.

Tripolinolate A as a new bioactive phenolic ester was previously isolated from a halophyte of Tripolium pannonicum. However, the in vitro and in vivo anti-glioma effects and mechanism of tripolinolate...

The Association Between Index of Nutritional Quality (INQ) and Glioma and Evaluation of Nutrient Intakes of These Patients: A Case-Control Study.

Glioma is the most common adult brain tumors. Dietary factors may play a role in the etiology of glioma. The Index of Nutritional Quality (INQ) provides a general overview for the nutrient content of ...

Association between downexpression of miR-1301 and poor prognosis in patients with glioma.

MiR-1301 has been shown to be frequently down-regulated in various tumors. However, the clinical significance of miR-1301 in human glioma is still unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the pr...

Overexpression of ALK4 inhibits cell proliferation and migration through the inactivation of JAK/STAT3 signaling pathway in glioma.

Aristaless-like homeobox 4 (ALK4) is a member of ALK proteins family and plays an important role in tumorigenesis. However, the expression and function of ALK4 in glioma remain largely unknown. The ai...

Significance of perivascular tumour cells defined by CD109 expression in progression of glioma.

In the progression of glioma, tumour cells often exploit the perivascular microenvironment to promote their survival and resistance to conventional therapies. Some of these cells are considered to be ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A malignant BRAINSTEM neoplasm of the PONS. They are more commonly found in children than adults.

A BRAIN-specific hyalectin that may play a role in terminally differentiating NEURONS. It is found highly overexpressed in primary BRAIN TUMORS and in experimental models of GLIOMA.

Rare, slow-growing, benign intraventricular tumors, often asymptomatic and discovered incidentally. The tumors are classified histologically as ependymomas and demonstrate a proliferation of subependymal fibrillary astrocytes among the ependymal tumor cells. (From Clin Neurol Neurosurg 1997 Feb;99(1):17-22)

Neoplasms located in the brain ventricles, including the two lateral, the third, and the fourth ventricle. Ventricular tumors may be primary (e.g., CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS and GLIOMA, SUBEPENDYMAL), metastasize from distant organs, or occur as extensions of locally invasive tumors from adjacent brain structures.

Benign and malignant neoplasms that arise from the optic nerve or its sheath. OPTIC NERVE GLIOMA is the most common histologic type. Optic nerve neoplasms tend to cause unilateral visual loss and an afferent pupillary defect and may spread via neural pathways to the brain.
