RATIONALE: Patients with gliomas may be at risk for developing blood clots. Learning about the risk factors for developing blood clots may help doctors plan better treatment for gliomas. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying risk factors for developing blood clots in patients who are undergoing cancer treatment for newly diagnosed gliomas.
Sildenafil is a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor that has been approved for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension with orphan drug designation. Sildenafil modulates the nitric oxide (NO) pathway in the vessel wall. Since this pathway is impaired in pulmonary arteries of patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the investigators hypothesized that sildenafil might improve pulmonary hemodynamics and increase ex...
The objective of this study is to determine response rates (partial and complete responses) to nivolumab of recurrent or progressive IDH mutant high-grade gliomas with prior exposure to alkylating agents.
Gliomas, especially high grade gliomas and diffuse low grade gliomas, are characterized by their infiltrative nature. Recently, a new conception of supratotal resection has been proposed. Given the lack of prospective supporting data, the correlation between supratotal resection and the survival of patients with glioma need to be established. Therefore, the investigators aim to do a single center prospective randomized controlled clinical trial to assess the effect of supratot...
The investigators will look for the presence of the fusion gene in all patients operated on for glioma. This search will be limited to all gliomas that show no IDH1 mutation, the latter being sought in both routine and anomalies never co-existing. The hypothesis is that the rate of progression-free survival in grade IV gliomas and III without IDH1 mutation, with the usual chemotherapy, only 15% at 6 months (ie, 85% of patients relapse before 6 months of treatment), must be wit...
data from the wistar institute indicated that this anti-body labeled with iodine-125 would localized in the tumor cells of high grade gliomas of the brain. the project combines surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy with the labeled antibody in a prospective phase II trial in this disease entity.
Postoperative conventional radiation at 60 Gy/30f is currently still considered the standard radiotherapy mode for high-grade gliomas; however, the efficacy is still unsatisfactory. Studies in recent years have shown that hypofractionated simultaneous integrated boost-intensity modulated radiation therapy (SIB-IMRT) has certain survival benefits over other fractionation methods; but, the best hypofractionation mode and its efficacy have not been confirmed. The purpose of this s...
This study is being conducted to help determine whether β-elemene as maintain treatment for complete remission patients of newly diagnosed malignant gliomas following standard treatment, is able to delay tumor growth, or impact how long people with newly diagnosed high-grade glioma.
This study will evaluate the feasibility of combining two drugs, Tarceva (an anti-EGFR agent), and Rapamycin (an mTOR inhibitor), in children with progressive low-grade gliomas who have failed initial conventional treatment. In addition to evaluating the toxicity of this drug regimen, the potential efficacy of the regimen will be assessed.
Tumours of the brain and of the central nervous system (CNS) are the most common solid tumours in children. Amongst these, gliomas are the most frequent, although this term covers different histological subtypes, the most frequent being astrocytoma. However, they are rare diseases of low prevalence. The interest in the cisplatin/irinotecan combination in brain tumours motivated a previous pilot study at our hospital, with encouraging results. This experience, together with the...
Knowledge of the spatial extent of gliomas is an essential prerequisite for the treatment planning. In particular, the localization of the border zone between tumor infiltrated and normal brain tissue is one of the major problems to be solved before beginning therapy. However, it is a well known problem that, in conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), it often is difficult to detect areas with low tumor infiltration, especially in gliomas, because of their infiltrative a...
1.1 To determine the efficacy, as measured by 6 month progression-free survival, of therapy with thalidomide combined with CPT-11 in the treatment of patients with recurrent and/or progressive malignant gliomas. 1.2 To determine the rate of measureable clinical response in patients treated with Thalidomide and CPT-11. 1.3 To determine TTP, overall survival and unexpected toxicity of Thalidomide and CPT-11 used in recurrent malignant gliomas. 1.4 To determine c...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy is more effective than temozolomide in treating gliomas. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying radiation therapy to see how well it works compared to temozolomide in treating ...
Orphan livers are organs that have been declined for clinical use by all centers due to their marginality. The current standard of care of liver preservation before transplant is cold storage. NMP may allow these livers to be evaluated before transplantation. NMP has already been used in a clinical setting with promising results.The advantage to utilizing NMP is that it would attenuate the incidence and clinical impact of classical preservation injury, reduce EAD and other comp...
The purpose of this study is to determine the ability of letrozole to penetrate the blood brain barrier and concentrate in gliomas.
This is a study to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and anti-tumor activity of DS-1001b in patients with gliomas that harbor IDH1-R132 mutations.
The purpose of this research study is to learn if the study drug RAD001 can shrink or slow the growth of low-grade gliomas in children with NF1. Additionally, the safety of RAD001 will be studied. The study drug, RAD001, is a drug that may act directly on tumor cells by preventing tumor cell growth and development. RAD001 has been studied in participants with various types of cancer as a single agent (a drug that is used alone to treat the cancer) or in combination wit...

The FilmArray Respiratory Panel (RP) EZ is a test designed for use with the FilmArray 2.0 EZ Configuration instrument that identifies common bacterial and viral microorganisms associated with respiratory tract infections from a nasopharyngeal swab (NPS) specimen collected in viral transport medi...
The purpose of this study is to determine the survival, disease response, and side effects of Tasigna® (nilotinib) in patients who have malignant gliomas and are positive for Platelet Derived Growth Factor Receptor (PDGFR) amplification. This study is designed to test the hypothesis that patients with malignant gliomas with PDGFR amplification are sensitive to PDGFR kinase inhibitors.
Sildenafil is a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor that has been approved for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension with orphan drug designation. Sildenafil modulates the nitric oxide (NO) pathway in the vessel wall. Since this pathway is impaired in pulmonary arteries of patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), we hypothesized that sildenafil might improve pulmonary hemodynamics and increase exercise toleranc...
Brain imaging tests are routinely used to detect the presence of a brain tumor or to evaluate the response to treatment. Sometimes the images obtained are not specific and the only way to establish a diagnosis is by obtaining a tissue sample. The hypotheses of the study is to determine if multimodal MR technique will provide tissue signatures that differentiate between tumor progression and treatment related necrosis in high grade glioma patients.
This pilot, partially randomized clinical trial studies how well glycosylated recombinant human interleukin-7 works in increasing low cluster of differentiation (CD)4 counts after concurrent radiation and temozolomide treatment in patients with gliomas that tend to grow rapidly and spread (high-grade). Treatment with radiation and chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, may cause an abnormal decrease in CD4 cells, which are an important part of the immune system. Glycosylated recom...
