The purpose of this study is to establish the safety of infusions of panobinostat (MTX110) into the fourth ventricle of the brain or tumor resection cavity in patients with recurrent medulloblastoma and to assess the antitumor activity of simultaneous infusions of panobinostat (MTX110) into the fourth ventricle of the brain or resection cavity in patients with recurrent medulloblastoma based upon MRI scans and lumbar cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cytology.

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects of panobinostat nanoparticle formulation MTX110 (MTX110) in treating participants with newly-diagnosed diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma. Pano...
The blood brain barrier (BBB) prevents some drugs from successfully reaching the target source. Convection-Enhanced Delivery (CED) is a method of direct infusion of drugs under controlled ...
The aim of the study was to improve local control and long-term survival in children with medulloblastoma, reduce the side effects of treatment and improve quality of life.
This phase II trial is studying giving radiation therapy together with combination chemotherapy after surgery to see how well it works in treating children with newly diagnosed medulloblas...
This phase II trial is studying how well vismodegib works in treating adult patients with recurrent or refractory medulloblastoma. Vismodegib may slow the growth of tumor cells and may be ...
Cerebellar Mutism Syndrome (CMS) is a common complication following resection of posterior fossa tumors, most commonly after surgery for medulloblastoma. Medulloblastoma subgroups have historically be...
Nodular desmoplastic medulloblastoma (ND) and medulloblastoma with extensive nodularity (MBEN) have been associated with a more favorable outcome in younger children. However, treatment-related neurot...
Medulloblastoma, an embryonal tumor of the cerebellum/fourth ventricle, is one of the most frequent malignant brain tumors in children. Although genetic variants are increasingly used in treatment str...
A subset of poor-prognosis medulloblastoma has genomic amplification of MYC. MYC regulates glutamine metabolism in multiple cellular contexts. We modified the glutamine analog 6-diazo-5-oxo-l-norleuci...
The most common primary CNS tumor in children is the medulloblastoma, which generally occurs in the posterior fossa and can spread through the CNS and spinal cord. Although the recurrence of renal cel...
A malignant neoplasm that may be classified either as a glioma or as a primitive neuroectodermal tumor of childhood (see NEUROECTODERMAL TUMOR, PRIMITIVE). The tumor occurs most frequently in the first decade of life with the most typical location being the cerebellar vermis. Histologic features include a high degree of cellularity, frequent mitotic figures, and a tendency for the cells to organize into sheets or form rosettes. Medulloblastoma have a high propensity to spread throughout the craniospinal intradural axis. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp2060-1)
Procedures, surgery, or other treatment without consent of person or persons receiving treatment.
A patched receptor that may function redundantly with the PATCHED-1 RECEPTOR to modulate hedgehog signaling. It may also play a role in epidermal development and as a TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN. Mutations in the patched-2 gene are associated with BASAL CELL NEVUS SYNDROME; CARCINOMA, BASAL CELL; and MEDULLOBLASTOMA.
Withholding or withdrawal of a particular treatment or treatments, often (but not necessarily) life-prolonging treatment, from a patient or from a research subject as part of a research protocol. The concept is differentiated from REFUSAL TO TREAT, where the emphasis is on the health professional's or health facility's refusal to treat a patient or group of patients when the patient or the patient's representative requests treatment. Withholding of life-prolonging treatment is usually indexed only with EUTHANASIA, PASSIVE, unless the distinction between withholding and withdrawing treatment, or the issue of withholding palliative rather than curative treatment, is discussed.
A vasodilator that also has bronchodilatory action. It has been employed in the treatment of angina pectoris, in the treatment of asthma, and in conjunction with ultraviolet light A, has been tried in the treatment of vitiligo. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1024)
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. For example: to diagnose diseases to measure the progress or recovery from disease to confirm that a person is free from disease Clin...
