This phase II trial studies the neurological function in patients with multiple brain metastases undergoing stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) or stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). Assessment of neurocognitive function may help show that SRS preserves neurological function in patients with multiple brain metastases better than SBRT
Stereotactic radiosurgery or hypofractionated radiotherapy of the resection cavity after metastasectomy in cancer patients with brain metastases
This pilot clinical trial studies how well voxel based diffusion tensor imaging in predicting response in patients with brain metastases undergoing whole-brain radiation therapy or stereotactic radiosurgery. Voxel based diffusion tensor imaging (VB-DTI) may allow doctors to measure response to whole brain radiation therapy or stereotactic radiosurgery earlier than is possible with a standard magnetic resonance imaging. The earlier ability to measure response may allow for consi...
Patients suffering from small cell lung cancer (SCLC) are at high risk for developing brain metastases (BM). To prevent a clinical manifestation of preexisting microscopic brain dissemination, prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) is offered to both limited and extensive disease patients, if they respond to first line regime, thus being at risk or at chance to develop clinical brain metastases. However, up to 10-15% of patients present with BM at initial diagnosis. If MRI is u...
Because electrochemotherapy is a quick and effective treatment for cutaneous metastases, a novel electrode device has been developed for treatment in soft tissue such as the brain. Up to 18 patients will be treated in this phase I dose-escalating study of electrochemotherapy for brain metastases. Primary endpoint of the clinical trial is safety and secondary endpoint is efficacy. One brain metastasis is treated once-only with the electrode device guided stereotactically through...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of radiation therapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed brain metastases from kidney cancer, melanoma, or sarcoma.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of ATR kinase inhibitor VX-970 (VX-970) when given together with whole brain radiation therapy in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread from the original (primary) tumor to the brain. ATR kinase inhibitor VX-970 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving ATR k...
This study will be a non-randomized phase II trial for patients with one to six brain metastases, at least one of which is appropriate for surgical resection. Upon registration, patients will be assigned to receive neo-adjuvant stereotactic radiosurgery (NASRS).
This study will be a dual-arm prospective longitudinal cohort study for patients with brain metastases, at least one of which is appropriate for radiotherapy, to explore brain and cognitive changes following SRS or WBRT and evaluate the feasibility of a novel MRI protocol to identify potential radiological biomarkers of NCF decline. Patients diagnosed with brain mets will be assigned to either Arm A or Arm B, depending on their treatment plan. Patients in Arm A will be treated...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential of [18F]-ML-10 to serve as an imaging tool for the early detection of response of brain metastases to radiation therapy. Such early detection may help early identification of responsive and non-responsive lesions. The experimental design of the present study aims to evaluate the potential of PET imaging with [18F]-ML-10 to address the currently unmet clinical need for very early (within one day)assessment of response to the...
The aim of the study is to determine if Iressa is effective in the treatment of Brain metastases from NCSLC
The study will use an Ommaya reservoir that drains into brain metastases to deliver activated, autolous dendritic cells to the tumor lesion, for patients who are 18 - 75 years old who have brain metastases from either lung cancer or breast cancer. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of administering DCVax-Direct to patients with metastatic tumors in the brain. The secondary objectives are to determine tumor response, the rate of intracra...
Purpose: The primary objective of this study is to determine if chemotherapy with carboplatin and temozolomide significantly affects the response rates, or size of disease, in patients with brain metastases, originating from cancer in other parts of the body, compared to patients who have already been treated with radiation. Survival, causes of death, recurrence of disease in the central nervous system, toxicity, and quality of life will all be measured as secondary objective i...
RATIONALE: Lapatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for their growth. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well lapatinib works in treating brain metastases in patients with stage IV breast cancer and brain metastases.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether RTA 744 is effective in the treatment of breast cancer that has metastasized to the brain.
Background: Sometimes breast cancer spreads (metastasizes) to the brain. Researchers want to study new treatments for brain metastases. The drug Temozolomide is approved to treat brain tumors. Researchers want to see if combining it with the drug T-DMI prevents the formation of new metastases in the brain. Objective: To study if Temozolomide with T-DM1 lowers the chance of having new metastases in the brain. Eligibility: Adults at least 18 years old with ...
Brain metastases are the most common intracranial malignancy occurring in 20-40% of all cancers, and the presence of CNS metastases is associated with a poor prognosis. As such, the median overall survival of patients with symptomatic brain lesions is a dismal 2-3 months regardless of tumor type. Because standard chemotherapy largely does not cross the blood brain barrier at a meaningful concentration, standard treatment is limited and usually involves surgical resection and/or...
Brain metastases occur when cancer cells from the initial tumour site (for example, lung or breast) spread to the brain. This develops in approximately 10% - 30% of adults with cancer. They can produce different complaints related to their effect on brain functioning, decrease in a person’s ability to carry on with their usual activities, a reduction in the quality of life and shortened life expectancy. The standard treatment particularly for people with more than one brain...
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is increasingly applied in patients with brain metastases (BM) and is expected to have less adverse effects on cognitive functioning than Whole Brain Radiation Therapy (WBRT). Because cognitive functions are essential for daily functioning, and may affect therapy compliance and quality of life in general, a full understanding of cognitive functioning in patients with BM after SRS is essential. CAR-Study A is a prospective study to evaluate cogni...
The primary purpose of the study is to evaluate if motexafin gadolinium with whole brain radiation therapy followed by a stereotactic radiosurgery boost is a safe and effective treatment.
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Stereotactic radiosurgery may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of radiation therapy followed by stereotactic radiosurgery in treating patients who have brain metastases from malignant melanoma.
The purpose of this study is to begin to develop a device to stabilize the head during stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). SRS is a therapy for brain disorders and cancers that uses a precise dose of radiation to treat a disease, and is different from whole brain radiation. This study aims to stabilize patient head motions during radiation therapy through the use of a special experimental head holder. The investigators would like to first see how the experimental device works in w...
The objective is to to compare 2 mm vs 0 mm PTV margins with respect to local PFS and risk of radionecrosis when treating intact brain metastases with LINAC-based frameless SRS
SRS dose escalation for brain metastases in radiation-naïve patients will establish true tolerable doses, which may exceed the current standard doses. This may lead to an improvement in local control, patient survival, and/or quality-of life.
This research study is studying Proton Radiation as a possible treatment for brain tumor. The radiation involved in this study is: -Proton Radiation
