N2007-03: Vorinostat and 131-I MIBG in Treating Patients With Resistant or Relapsed Neuroblastoma

RATIONALE: Vorinostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Radioactive drugs, such as iobenguane I 131, may carry radiation directly t...

Expanded Access Protocol for [123I]mIBG for Patients With Known or Suspected Neuroblastoma

GE Healthcare has recently submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) for Iobenguane I 123 Injection ([123I]mIBG (AdreView)) as a diagnostic nuclear imaging agent for the detection of primary ...

A Study of Therapeutic Iobenguane (131-I) for High-Risk Neuroblastoma at theTime of First Relapse

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 131I-MIBG in patients with neuroblastoma, who relapsed following initial therapy.

131 I-MIBG in Treating Patients With Refractory or Relapsed Neuroblastoma

RATIONALE: Radioactive drugs, such as 131 I-MIBG, may carry radiation directly to tumor cells and not harm normal cells. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well 131 I-MIBG works...

Phase 1-2 Study of Iobenguane (MIBG) I 131 in Patients With Malignant Pheochromocytoma/Paraganglioma

The purpose of this study is to determine whether iobenguane I 131 is safe and effective in patients with malignant pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An indolocarbazole that is a potent PROTEIN KINASE C inhibitor which enhances cAMP-mediated responses in human neuroblastoma cells. (Biochem Biophys Res Commun 1995;214(3):1114-20)

A malignant olfactory neuroblastoma arising from the olfactory epithelium of the superior nasal cavity and cribriform plate. It is uncommon (3% of nasal tumors) and rarely is associated with the production of excess hormones (e.g., SIADH, Cushing Syndrome). It has a high propensity for multiple local recurrences and bony metastases. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3rd ed, p1245; J Laryngol Otol 1998 Jul;112(7):628-33)

A moderately malignant neoplasm composed of primitive neuroectodermal cells dispersed in myxomatous or fibrous stroma intermixed with mature ganglion cells. It may undergo transformation into a neuroblastoma. It arises from the sympathetic trunk or less frequently from the adrenal medulla, cerebral cortex, and other locations. Cervical ganglioneuroblastomas may be associated with HORNER SYNDROME and the tumor may occasionally secrete vasoactive intestinal peptide, resulting in chronic diarrhea.

Genes of IAP elements (a family of retrovirus-like genetic elements) which code for virus-like particles (IAPs) found regularly in rodent early embryos. ("Intracisternal" refers to the cisternae of the endoplasmic reticulum.) Under certain circumstances, such as DNA hypomethylation they are transcribed. Their transcripts are found in a variety of neoplasms, including plasmacytomas, neuroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcomas, teratocarcinomas, and colon carcinomas.

Family of retrovirus-associated DNA sequences (ras) originally isolated from Harvey (H-ras, Ha-ras, rasH) and Kirsten (K-ras, Ki-ras, rasK) murine sarcoma viruses. Ras genes are widely conserved among animal species and sequences corresponding to both H-ras and K-ras genes have been detected in human, avian, murine, and non-vertebrate genomes. The closely related N-ras gene has been detected in human neuroblastoma and sarcoma cell lines. All genes of the family have a similar exon-intron structure and each encodes a p21 protein.
