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.
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...
To evaluate the efficacy of multi-modality magnetic resonance quantitative parameters in evaluating the treatment effects of high-grade gliomas, and to provide new biomarkers for the establishment of new diagnostic criteria for the identification of true and pseudoprogression of high-grade gliomas.
18F-Fluorothymidine is a recently developed PET tracer to image tumor cell proliferation. Very few data report an interest of using such a tracer for cerebral malignant tumor management. In our project, we want to compare the tumoral volumes obtained with PET and MRI, with the gold standard histopathological diagnosis according to the WHO grading malignancy scale and the Ki-67 proliferation index, for preoperative evaluation as much as for tumoral postoperative residue evaluati...
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.
The management of lower-grade gliomas (Diffuse low-grade and intermediate-grade gliomas, WHO II and III) is largely based on surgery followed by radiotherapy. Recent studies showed that lower-grade glioma patients with IDH wild-type (IDH-wt) and TERT promoter mutation (TERTp-mut) had dismal clinical outcomes. These results suggested that current treatment strategies are not adequate for this subtype of lower-grade glioma. The present study aims to examine the efficacy and safe...
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...
Application of Nanotechnology and Chemical Sensors for Diagnosis of Decompensated Heart Failure by Respiratory Samples. Breath testing, which links specific volatile molecular biomarkers in exhaled breath to medical conditions, is becoming increasingly popular as a non-invasive and potentially inexpensive diagnostic method for various diseases. NA-NOSE performs odor detection from exhaled breath, thus producing a distinct fingerprint for each mixture of analytes. Severa...
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...
This US study aims to assess hemophilia A patient characteristics and reasons for switching from both patient/caregiver and physician perspectives. For this purpose, this research study will include hemophilia A patients who have switched from an existing therapy to Kovaltry. In doing so, real world evidence will be obtained from both patient and physician perspectives offering key insights for effective therapeutic management of patients with hemophilia A and to more fully und...
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 ...
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 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.
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...
RATIONALE: LY317615 may stop the growth of gliomas by stopping blood flow to the tumor. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well LY317615 works in treating patients with recurrent glioma.
Pilot Trial of CA4P with Avastin in Recurrent Gliomas
The purpose of this study is to test how well the drug works, safety and tolerability of an investigational drug called Ruxolitinib in gliomas and glioblastomas, when combined with standard treatment for brain cancer, temozolomide and radiation. Ruxolitinib is an experimental drug that works by targeting proteins in cells and stops them from growing. Ruxolitinib is experimental because it is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of gliomas or...
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 assesses the tolerability, safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of RTA 744 in recurrent high-grade gliomas.
Irinotecan has demonstrated activity in malignant gliomas in multiple phase II studies. The activity is limited, with an approximately 15 % response rate and a progression-free survival of 3-5 months. Given the synergy between irinotecan and bevacizumab in colorectal cancer, and the high-level expression of vascular endothelial growth factor on malignant gliomas, one would expect synergy between bevacizumab and irinotecan against gliomas. Recent data form a small study of 32 p...
