Clinical Trials [2393 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Methotrexate-based Chemo-immunotherapy Followed by Maintenance Therapy for Patients > 65 Years With Central Nervous System (CNS)-Lymphoma

The purpose of this study is to determine whether combined chemotherapy [rituximab plus high dosage methotrexate, lomustine, and procarbazine] followed by maintenance therapy with procarba...

Combination Chemotherapy, Monoclonal Antibody, and Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy such as methotrexate and temozolomide use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Monoclonal antibodies such as...

Intravitreal Methotrexate and R2(Rituximab & Lenalidomide) Regimen in Newly-diagnosed Primary Vitreoretinal Lymphoma

This is a prospective single arm phase II study, and the purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of R2 regimen (rituximab & lenalidomide) combined with intravitreal methotrexat...

Rituximab and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some find cancer cells and kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them. Others inte...

Combined Immunochemotherapy Followed By Reduced Dose Radiation Therapy (RT) for Patients With Newly Diagnosed Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma

The purpose of this study is to find out if immunotherapy (rituximab) added to chemotherapy is a safe treatment for primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). PCNSL is a rare tumor. ...

Rituximab plus Lenalidomide in Advanced Untreated Follicular Lymphoma.

Rituximab plus chemotherapy has been shown to be effective in patients with advanced-stage, previously untreated follicular lymphoma; nevertheless, most patients will have a relapse. Combination immun...

Correction to: Fludarabine and rituximab with escalating doses of lenalidomide followed by lenalidomide/rituximab maintenance in previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL): the REVLIRIT CLL-5 AGMT phase I/II study.

Is whole-brain radiotherapy still a standard treatment for primary central nervous system lymphomas?

In primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSL), optimal therapy remains to be established, and the role of whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT) is a matter of debate. With radiation alone, transient r...

Rituximab treatment in primary angiitis of the central nervous system.

Primary angiitis of the central nervous system (PACNS) is a rare autoimmune vasculitis affecting the brain and spinal cord. Treatment with biological agents has revolutionised the treatment of many rh...

Stereotactic brachytherapy with iodine-125 seeds plus temozolomide induce complete and durable remission in a patient with recurrent primary central nervous system lymphoma.

The optimal treatment of recurrent primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is not determined. We report a patient with recurrent PCNSL who has been successfully treated with stereotactic brach...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

Radiotherapy using high-energy (megavolt or higher) ionizing radiation. Types of radiation include gamma rays, produced by a radioisotope within a teletherapy unit; x-rays, electrons, protons, alpha particles (helium ions) and heavy charged ions, produced by particle acceleration; and neutrons and pi-mesons (pions), produced as secondary particles following bombardment of a target with a primary particle.

The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.

Infections of the brain, spinal cord, or meninges by single celled organisms of the former subkingdom known as protozoa. The central nervous system may be the primary or secondary site of protozoal infection. Examples of primary infections include cerebral amebiasis, granulomatous amebic encephalitis, primary amebic meningoencephalitis, and TRYPANOSOMIASIS, AFRICAN. Cerebral malaria, cerebral babesiosis, and chagasic meningoencephalitis are examples of secondary infections. These diseases may occur as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS or arise in immunocompetent hosts. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1998, Ch27, pp37-47)

An antineoplastic agent used primarily in combination with mechlorethamine, vincristine, and prednisone (the MOPP protocol) in the treatment of Hodgkin's disease.
