Neuroblastoma (NB), a common cancer of early childhood originating from primitive sympathetic neural precursors, is characterized by the remarkable heterogeneity of clinical behaviors from spontaneous regression to rapid progression and death. The current therapeutic options are developed according to the Children's Oncology Group (COG) risk stratification criteria based on clinical and biological factors, including tumor stage, MYCN status, age at diagnosis, histology, and plo...
RATIONALE: Studying the genes expressed in specimens from patients with cancer may help doctors identify biomarkers related to cancer. It may also help doctors predict how patients will respond to treatment. PURPOSE: This research study is looking at specimens from young patients with neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma (NB) is the most common malignant tumor of infancy. Approximately 60% of NB patients are clinically diagnosed as the stage IV disease and have a very poor prognosis with the 5-year survival rate no more than 30%. Molecular markers of NB have great impacts on the tumor behavior. MYCN amplification is the most well-known marker to predict a poor outcome in NB patients. However, how MYCN affects the NB cell behavior remains unknown. In our preliminary studies, we per...
Medical scientists want to find better ways to treat neuroblastoma and to find ways to prevent the tumor from growing back. To do this, they need more information about the characteristics of neuroblastoma cells. Therefore, they want to study samples of neuroblastoma tissues and neuroblastoma and normal cells in the blood and bone marrow that may be related to the growth of neuroblastoma cells. Doctors and other medical scientists also want to find better ways to detect and mea...
RATIONALE: Surgery may be an effective treatment for neuroblastoma. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well surgery works in treating patients with neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma affects approximately 500 children a year in the United States. When the tumor occurs in infants, it is frequently localized and responds well to therapy. Even disseminated disease can be eradicated in about 75% of infants, and indeed may undergo spontaneous remission. In older children, the prognosis is far worse, and 80% or more of those with disseminated tumor can be expected to relapse within 3 years. This study will utilize the concept of exploiting the immu...
RATIONALE: Studying samples of tumor tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer. PURPOSE: This research trial studies biomarkers in tumor samples from younger patients with neuroblastoma.
This study proposes to investigate the effect of treatment of neuroblastoma on nutritional status, assessed by body mass index (BMI) z score, and body composition evaluated by mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC), from diagnosis through 1-year post end of treatment. The study also aims to investigate the nutritional status and its role in toxicities, infection, survival rates, disease relapse, cost of care and readmission rates, as well as health-related quality of life. The stud...
Patients with refractory and/or recurrent neuroblastoma have poor prognosis despite complex multimodel therapy and therefore, novel approaches are urgently needed. The investigators are attempt to treat this disease using T cells genetically modified with a 4th generation lentiviral chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) targeting GD2 (4SCAR-GD2). The 4SCAR-GD2-modified T cells can recognize and kill neuroblastoma through the recognition of GD2, a surface protein expressed at high lev...
RATIONALE: Studying the genes in a child's cancer cells may help doctors improve ways to diagnose and treat children with neuroblastoma. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the genes biomarkers in children with neuroblastoma.
The purpose of this study is to assess the incidence of human anti-chimeric antibody (HACA) in high-risk neuroblastoma patients treated with Unituxin combination therapy.
Difluoromethylornithine (DFMO) will be used in an open label, single agent, multicenter, study for patients with neuroblastoma in remission. In this study subjects will receive 730 Days of oral difluoromethylornithine (DFMO) at a dose of 500 to 1000 mg/m2 BID on each day of study. This study will focus on the use of DFMO in high risk neuroblastoma patients that are in remission as a strategy to prevent recurrence.
This proposal sets forth the platform for a Precision Medicine clinical trial through the New Approaches to Neuroblastoma Therapy (NANT) consortium. The plan is to utilize NANT's established multi-institutional infrastructure and Translational Genomics Research Institute GEM sequencing platform for acquisition and gene panel sequencing of relapsed biological specimens in relapsed/refractory neuroblastoma (rNB) including those obtained from the bone, bone marrow or soft tissue. ...
RATIONALE: Surgery alone may be effective in treating children with neuroblastoma. PURPOSE: Phase III trial to study the effectiveness of surgery alone in treating children who have neuroblastoma.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 131I-MIBG in patients with neuroblastoma, who relapsed following initial therapy.
Neuroblastoma is a neoplasm of the sympathetic nervous system which affects mostly children younger than 5 years of age. It is a heterogeneous disease, with nearly 50% of patients presenting with a high-risk phenotype. After standard treatment, the 2-year event-free survival (EFS) for high risk neuroblastoma (EFS) is only about 50%. Immunotherapy with anti-GD2 antibodies has been shown to improve EFS in Children's Oncology Group and SIOPEN trials. The anti-GD2 antibody m...
The purpose of this study is to test see the combined effects of the study drug called Humanized 3F8 (Hu3F8) when used with granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF). Hu3F8 plus GM-CSF could prevent your neuroblastoma from growing, but it could also cause side effects.
This research trial studies late effects after treatment in patients with previously diagnosed high-risk neuroblastoma. Studying late effects after treatment may help to decide which treatments for high-risk neuroblastoma are better tolerated with less side effects over time.
GE Healthcare has recently submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) for Iobenguane I 123 Injection ([123I]mIBG (AdreView)) as a diagnostic nuclear imaging agent for the detection of primary or metastatic neuroblastoma and pheochromocytoma. The present protocol establishes an Expanded Access program to provide AdreView to pediatric medical centers and hospitals that treat neuroblastoma patients. AdreView will be provided for use in diagnostic assessment of patients with known or...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of XK469 in treating patients with advanced neuroblastoma.
RATIONALE: Inserting the gene for interleukin-2 into a person's neuroblastoma cells may make the body build an immune response and kill tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of using interleukin-2 gene-modified neuroblastoma cells in treating children who have relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma.
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and efficacy of GD2-CART01, a CAR T cell treatment targeting GD2 in paediatric or young adult patients with High Risk and/or relapsed/refractory Neuroblastoma.
Improvement of event free survival of high-risk neuroblastoma patients by introduction of two additional topotecan containing chemotherapy cycles into the multimodal standard treatment (induction chemotherapy, megatherapy, radiation, surgery as indicated, and consolidation therapy).
PET (positron emission tomography) scans combined with a radioactive tracer will be used to identify and analyze tumors. Currently, the most common tracer used to analyze neuroblastoma tumors is called 123I-mIBG. However, the picture it provides is not always clear enough to see the very small areas of the disease. 18F-DA (18F-fluorodopamine) has been shown to be safe and more effective than 123I-mIBG in analyzing the tumor pheochromocytoma, which is closely related to neurobl...
131I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (131I-MIBG) is a norepinephrine analog that concentrates in adrenergic tissue and therefore holds promise for cell-specific treatment of neuroblastoma. This is a dual institution, Phase II study of 131I-MIBG administered at the previously defined maximum practical dose of 18 mCi/kg to children with relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma.
