The investigators have recently observed that many patients who had received high dose Interleukin-2 (IL2) and failed to respond to it but who then go immediately to temozolomide seemed to...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if treatment with Temodar (temozolomide), Velban (vinblastine), Cisplatin, Proleukin (interleukin-2), Intron-A (interferon alpha), and ...
The investigators want to learn to predict which tumors will respond to CVT chemotherapy. CVT is a combination of three drugs - cisplatin, vinblastine, and temozolomide. We and other inves...
This is an open-label, dose finding, multiple-dose study in subjects with metastatic melanoma. Three dose levels of MPC-6827 will be administered with temozolomide to three separate cohort...
The goal of the Phase I part of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of the drug Yervoy (ipilimumab) that can be given with the drugs Temodar (temozolomide), ...
Asian melanoma patients, predominantly comprised of acral and mucosal subtypes, might not benefit from immunotherapy and targeted therapy as much as Caucasian patients. Novel treatment strategies are ...
Doxorubicin, cisplatin, and high-dose methotrexate (HDMTX) are the backbone of pediatric osteosarcoma treatment. However, due to toxicity concerns and the lack of data regarding efficacy in adults, hi...
Evaluate the toxicity and efficacy of adjuvant temozolomide (TMZ) and irinotecan (CPT-11) for 12 months following concurrent chemo-radiation in newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM).
Methotrexate treatment has been linked with an increased risk of melanoma. However, a possible dose-response relationship with respect to methotrexate exposure and melanoma has not been addressed. The...
Radiation therapy is a useful and standard tumor treatment strategy. Despite recent advances in delivery of ionizing radiation, survival rates for some cancer patients are still low because of recurre...
An unpigmented malignant melanoma. It is an anaplastic melanoma consisting of cells derived from melanoblasts but not forming melanin. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
Experimentally induced tumor that produces MELANIN in animals to provide a model for studying human MELANOMA.
Mice selectively bred for hypersusceptibility to two-stage chemical skin carcinogenesis. They are also hypersusceptible to UV radiation tumorigenesis with single high-dose, but not chronic low-dose, exposures. SENCAR (SENsitive to CARcinogenesis) mice are used in research as an animal model for tumor production.
