The era of precision medicine is an exciting time for clinicians, scientists and patients alike. The increasing appreciation and identification of specific mutations that drive cancers, leaves us on the threshold of a new era in which biomarkers will be used to direct targeted agents to only those patients most likely to respond. The potential medical and scientific benefits of such a personalised approach to cancer therapy are immense. However, a number of barriers challenge s...
Background: Ependymoma is a rare type of primary brain or spine tumor. That means that it starts in the brain or spine. These tumors affect both children and adults. Researchers want to study a large group of people with this kind of tumor. They want to learn more about the tumors, including the risk factors related to how they develop in adults. Objective: To collect health and gene data to learn about what changes are associated with an ependymoma, to eventuall...
This phase I trial studies the side effects of linear energy transfer (LET) optimized image modulated proton therapy (IMPT) in treating pediatric patients with ependymoma. Radiation therapy such as LET optimized IMPT, uses proton beams to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors without damaging surrounding normal tissues.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the anti-tumor activity of Everolimus among children with recurrent or progressive ependymoma. Recurrent or progressive ependymoma is incurable and has very limited treatment options. The rationale for this study is based upon both pre-clinical and clinical considerations: Immunohistochemistry studies have demonstrated that 20 out of 23 (87%) pediatric ependymomas are immunoreactive for phosphorylated S6, a biomarker that often predicts ...
Adult intracranial ependymoma is a relatively rare brain tumour entity, accounting for 2-5% of all intracranial neoplasms. The pertinent prognostic factors as well as the pattern of recurrence remain to be elucidated. According to several recent reports, the prognostic value of Karnofski performance status, tumour location, the extent of surgical removal, histological grade and even postoperative radiotherapy remain controversial. As a consequence, optimal therapeutic managem...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if lapatinib when given in combination with temozolomide can help to control ependymoma that has come back after treatment. The safety of this combination will also be studied.
RATIONALE: Gathering information about how young patients with ependymoma respond to standard combination chemotherapy and learning about the long-term effects of this treatment may help doctors plan better treatment. PURPOSE: This phase III trial is observing young patients with ependymoma undergoing standard combination chemotherapy.
This study seeks to determine the optimum dose frequency of 5-Azacytidin (5-AZA) infusions into the fourth ventricle of the brain. The study's primary objective is to establish the maximum tolerated dose for infusions of 5-Azacytidine into the fourth ventricle in patients with recurrent ependymoma. The study's secondary objective is to assess the antitumor activity of 5-Azacytidine infusions into the fourth ventricle based upon imaging studies and cytology.
The explosion of novel therapies targeting tumor mutations or immune molecules requests to define or better characterize the mutational profiles of tumors that are none or insufficiently explored so far. This is particularly the case for tumors arising in immune-suppressed individuals or environments which have been poorly, if any, analyzed so far with modern molecular methods. The goal of the translational research program, Ideation, is to define novel biomarkers such as the t...
This study is aimed at validating key therapeutic targets and biomarkers associated with allergic rhinitis. The therapeutic target expression will be investigated after a 7 day course of corticosteroid treatment followed by allergen challenge.
The purpose of this study is to determine the response rate, that is the % of patients with non-progression of their metastatic breast cancer after 4 months on treatment that was selected by molecular testing and proteomics.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well etoposide works in treating young patients with ependymoma.
RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving chemotherapy before surgery may shrink the tumor so that it can be removed during surgery. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to determine the effectiveness of specialized radiation therapy either alone...
This is a pilot biomarker study designed to compare frequencies of mutations between groups of malignant, benign and normal tissue or blood of patients with parathyroid disease and identify the potential genes showing molecular aberrations as other types of cancer.
The rate of fluid removal (ultrafiltration, UF) during hemodialysis (HD) may contribute to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality among individuals receiving maintenance HD. More rapid UF rates are associated with higher morbidity and mortality. Ultrafiltration profiling, the practice of varying UF rates to maximize fluid removal during periods of greatest hydration and plasma oncotic pressures, is one treatment modification that may reduce UF-related harm without necessitating...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as methotrexate, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well high-dose methotrexate works in treating young patients with residual ependymoma.
Handling oxygenation targets (HOT) is standard of care in the intensive care unit (ICU), however the quality and quantity of evidence is low and potential harm has been reported. The aim of the HOT-ICU trial is to assess the overall benefits and harms of two levels of oxygenation targets in adult critically ill patients with acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure in the ICU.
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving radiation therapy in different ways and giving it together with more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known which radiation therapy and combination chemotherapy regimen is more effective in treating medul...
Recent scientific advances have provided further impetus to develop new therapeutic approaches for Chagas Disease (CD) using different doses and duration of BZN, as well as combinations directed at multiple therapeutic targets to improve treatment response and tolerability and reduce the potential for development of resistance. This project focuses on the proof-of-concept evaluation of improved treatment regimens of BZN, with the assessment of new BZN-sparing regimens in monot...
In the present project we propose a large prospective study in heavy smokers volunteers based on plasma miRNA profiling to assess its efficacy as a first line screening test for lung cancer detection. The study will be articulated in different phases: i) analysis of 1000 plasma samples of disease-free smokers already collected in our biological repository in the last two years ii) de-novo enrollment of 4000 smoking volunteers, collection of their blood samples and inclus...
Adverse drug events (ADE) present a unique focus for error reduction. Computerized provider order entry, with embedded clinical decision support, has great promise in reducing medication errors but preventable adverse drug events may still occur despite such systems.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Combining more than one drug and combining chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying combination chemotherapy and radiation therapy to see how well they work in treating children with localized ependymoma.
