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.

Non-invasive Glioma Characterization Through Molecular Imaging

MRI-based sequences can provide non-invasive quantification of intratumoral 2-hydroxyglutarate (2HG) distribution and tumor cellularity in human gliomas and help guide the development of n...

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...

A Study Utilizing Escitalopram in Glioma Patients

This pilot study will include grade II and III glioma patients treated with SSRIs during a 3 month study period. Changes in cognition and evaluation of psychosocial factors from baseline t...

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...

Effects of lentivirus-mediated CYP17A1 gene silencing on the biological activity of glioma.

Gliomas are the most common malignant primary brain tumors with poor prognosis. We attempted to explore the role of CYP17A1 in glioma progression. We demonstrated that the expression of CYP17A1 was si...

H19 Functions as a Competing Endogenous RNA to Regulate EMT by Sponging miR-130a-3p in Glioma.

Glioma is one of the most devasting tumors and confers dismal prognosis. Long noncoding RNAs(lncRNAs) have emerged as important regulators in various tumors including glioma. A classic lncRNA-H19, whi...

The role of F-fluoro-ethyl-tyrosine (FET) PET in the investigation and management of suspected gliomas.

This study aims to investigate the utility of F-FET PET in surgical decision making in suspected glioma. A retrospective review of patients undergoing F-FET PET was performed. Previously published thr...

miR-497/Wnt3a/c-jun feedback loop regulates growth and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition phenotype in glioma cells.

Glioma is one of the most frequent intracranial malignant tumors. Abnormal expression of microRNAs usually contributes to the development and progression of glioma. In the current study, we explored t...

TRPV4 promotes the migration and invasion of glioma cells via AKT/Rac1 signaling.

Experimental evidence indicates a critical role of TRPV4 (Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 4) in controlling the cell migratory activity of multiple tumors. However, the oncogenic role of TRPV4 ...

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.
