RATIONALE: Radiosurgery can send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Bevacizumab may also stop the growth of glioblastoma by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy such as irinotecan hydrochloride work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving radiosurgery together with bevacizumab and irinotecan hydrochloride may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving radiosurgery together with bevacizumab and irinotecan hydrochloride works in treating patients with recurrent glioblastoma.
I. To determine the overall survival of patients with recurrent GBM treated with bevacizumab, irinotecan and radiosurgery
I. To evaluate the toxicities of the combination of bevacizumab, irinotecan and radiosurgery.
II. To evaluate the progression-free survival of patients treated with bevacizumab, irinotecan and radiosurgery.
Patients receive bevacizumab IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 15. Patients also receive irinotecan hydrochloride IV on days 1 and 15 beginning in course 2. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients undergo radiosurgery 10-14 days after beginning bevacizumab.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed for 18 months.

This is a Phase II, open-label, multicenter, randomized, non comparative study consisting of two concurrent single-arms. Approximately 160 subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to Ar...
The purpose of the this study is to see if an investigations cancer treatment called vorinostat can be combined with the irinotecan/bevacizumab regimen safely.
To assess the efficacy and safety of bevacizumab plus irinotecan for the patients with recurrent anaplastic astrocytoma or with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme
This 2 arm study will compare the effect of Avastin + irinotecan versus temozolomide, in combination with conventional involved field radiotherapy, in patients with newly diagnosed gliobla...
RATIONALE: CT-322 may stop the growth of glioblastoma multiforme by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan, work in different ways to stop the gro...
The vascular endothelial growth factor antibody bevacizumab (Avastin®), received approval for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma in many countries including the US and Switzerland, but not the E...
In this manuscript we aimed at the simultaneous separation and quantification of Gemcitabine and Irinotecan hydrochloride (injected both as single components and in combination) from Sprague Dawley ra...
Laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) enables ablation of lesions using thermal energy with minimal damage to surrounding regions. Bevacizumab has been used as an adjuvant therapy in recurrent gli...
Bevacizumab is an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor antibody used in the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma (GBM). Despite the large number of studies carried out in patients with recurrent GBM...
Benign and malignant central nervous system neoplasms derived from glial cells (i.e., astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymocytes). Astrocytes may give rise to astrocytomas (ASTROCYTOMA) or glioblastoma multiforme (see GLIOBLASTOMA). Oligodendrocytes give rise to oligodendrogliomas (OLIGODENDROGLIOMA) and ependymocytes may undergo transformation to become EPENDYMOMA; CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS; or colloid cysts of the third ventricle.

A pharmaceutical preparation of sitagliptin phosphate and metformin hydrochloride that is used in the treatment of TYPE 2 DIABETES.
An anti-VEGF recombinant monoclonal antibody consisting of humanized murine antibody. It inhibits VEGF receptors and prevents the proliferation of blood vessels.
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.
A benzamide derivative that is used as a dopamine antagonist.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
