Safety and Effectiveness Study of G207, a Tumor-Killing Virus, in Patients With Recurrent Brain Cancer

This clinical trial will study the safety and effectiveness of an engineered herpes virus, G207, administered directly into the brain of patients with recurrent brain cancer. G207 has bee...

G207 Followed by Radiation Therapy in Malignant Glioma

This is an open-label, single site study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of intratumoral administration of G207 followed by treatment with radiation therapy in patients with recurr...

Role of MR Spectroscopy in Brain Tumors

In order to come as close as possible to the correct diagnosis of CNS tumors, MRI is the long-standing accepted method of choice that can in some cases be supported by the use of CT to dem...

Evaluation of Anatomy, Clinical and Neuropsychological Long-term Sequelae of Patients Treated With Radiation Therapy for Brain Tumor

Through this study, the investigators believe to describe more accurately the damage caused by brain radiation therapy in the long term.

A Phase I Study of ABT-888 in Combination With Conventional Whole Brain Radiation Therapy (WBRT) in Cancer Patients

This Phase I clinical trial is studying the side effects and best dose of ABT-888 when given together with Whole Brain Radiation Therapy (WBRT) in treating patients with brain metastases.

Stereotactic Placement of Intratumoral Catheters for Continuous Infusion Delivery of HSV-1 G207 in Pediatric Malignant Supratentorial Brain Tumors.

G207, an engineered HSV-1, is a promising therapeutic option for CNS tumors. The first-ever pediatric Phase 1 trial of continuous-infusion delivery of G207 via intratumoral catheters for recurrent/pro...

Immunophenotypic Features of Myeloid Neoplasms Associated with Chromosome 7 Abnormalities.

Abnormalities involving chromosome 7 are one of the most frequent chromosomal aberrations in myeloid neoplasms including myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and are associ...

Outcomes from cytoreduction and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy for appendiceal epithelial neoplasms.

Appendiceal epithelial neoplasms are rare cancers. Management of peritoneal disease from appendiceal neoplasms has historically been with debulking surgery. In recent decades, the advent of cytoreduct...

Results of 31-P-MR-spectroscopy for brain metastases correlates with histopathological results.

Brain metastases (BM) are classically well-circumscribed lesions. Still, the amount of edema in these neoplasms suggested either mechanisms of infiltration or defense. A better understanding of the me...

Survival comparison between primary hepatic neuroendocrine neoplasms and primary pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms and the analysis on prognosis-related factors.

Primary hepatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PHNENs) are extremely rare and few articles have compared the prognosis of PHNENs with other neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs). This study aimed to investigate ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Neoplasms of the intracranial components of the central nervous system, including the cerebral hemispheres, basal ganglia, hypothalamus, thalamus, brain stem, and cerebellum. Brain neoplasms are subdivided into primary (originating from brain tissue) and secondary (i.e., metastatic) forms. Primary neoplasms are subdivided into benign and malignant forms. In general, brain tumors may also be classified by age of onset, histologic type, or presenting location in the brain.

A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.

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 intra-axial tumors of the MESENCEPHALON; PONS; or MEDULLA OBLONGATA of the BRAIN STEM. Primary and metastatic neoplasms may occur in this location. Clinical features include ATAXIA, cranial neuropathies (see CRANIAL NERVE DISEASES), NAUSEA, hemiparesis (see HEMIPLEGIA), and quadriparesis. Primary brain stem neoplasms are more frequent in children. Histologic subtypes include GLIOMA; HEMANGIOBLASTOMA; GANGLIOGLIOMA; and EPENDYMOMA.

Primary and metastatic (secondary) tumors of the brain located above the tentorium cerebelli, a fold of dura mater separating the CEREBELLUM and BRAIN STEM from the cerebral hemispheres and DIENCEPHALON (i.e., THALAMUS and HYPOTHALAMUS and related structures). In adults, primary neoplasms tend to arise in the supratentorial compartment, whereas in children they occur more frequently in the infratentorial space. Clinical manifestations vary with the location of the lesion, but SEIZURES; APHASIA; HEMIANOPSIA; hemiparesis; and sensory deficits are relatively common features. Metastatic supratentorial neoplasms are frequently multiple at the time of presentation.
