The standard of care for newly diagnosed glioblastoma includes surgery, involved-field radiotherapy, and concomitant and six cycles of maintenance temozolomide chemotherapy, however the prognosis remains dismal. Marizomib has been tested in patients with newly diagnosed and recurrent glioblastoma in phase I and phase II studies. In patients with recurrent glioblastoma, marizomib was administered as a single agent or in combination with bevacizumab (NCT02330562). Based on encouraging observations, a phase I/II trial of marizomib in combination with TMZ/RT -->TMZ in newly diagnosed glioblastoma has been launched (NCT02903069) which explores...
This study is being conducted to help determine whether the addition of Interferon-alpha(α-IFN),which were determined sensitized the activity of Temozolomide(TMZ) in vivo and vitro, when given along with temozolomide during the monthly cycles that follow radiation, is able to delay tumor growth, shrink tumors, or impact how long people with newly diagnosed high-grade glioma.
All patients will complete best standard of care radiation, temozolomide and bevacizumab (6 weeks). Within two weeks of completion of this initial treatment period, study patients will be fitted with the NovoTTF-100A System and treated continuously. They will be treated with TTFields for 12 months for an average of 18 hours per day. The patient may elect to take a treatment break for a total of 3 days per month, for each month and still be in compliance. This will consist of wearing four electrically insulated electrode arrays on the head. The patients will also continue with maintenance temozolomide/ bevacizumab.
To determine the efficacy of Pulse Reduced Dose Rate (PRDR) radiation when given in 27 fraction over 5.5 weeks with concurrent bevacizumab followed by adjuvant bevacizumab until time of progression in patients with recurrent high grade gliomas (grade III and grade IV). Patients will be placed in 1 of 4 groups based on their histologic diagnosis and prior exposure to bevacizumab.
This is a study to determine the safety and efficacy of the drug, mebendazole, when used in combination with standard chemotherapy drugs for the treatment of pediatric brain tumors. Mebendazole is a drug used to treat infections with intestinal parasites and has a long track record of safety in humans. Recently, it was discovered that mebendazole may be effective in treating cancer as well, in particular brain tumors. Studies using both cell cultures and mouse models demonstrated that mebendazole was effective in decreasing the growth of brain tumor cells. This study focuses on the treatment of a category of brain tumors called gliomas....
The purpose of this prospective, nonrandomized controlled phase IV study is to compare standard and advanced MRI for their ability to predict response to Optune therapy.
Purpose of Study This exploratory clinical study will investigate FMISO (fluoromisonidazole) in patients with (1) newly diagnosed primary malignant brain tumors (WHO [World Health Organization] Grade III or IV glial-based tumors) who have not had a complete surgical resection and by contrast MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) have residual tumor > 1.0 cm in diameter and will be receiving radiotherapy or (2) newly diagnosed brain metastasis (> 1.0 cm in diameter who will be receiving radiotherapy. The ability to accurately assess tumor hypoxia and accurately determine the amount/degree of tumor hypoxia could potentially change patient...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of the ExAblate Model 4000 Type 2.0 used as a tool to disrupt the BBB (blood brain barrier) in patients with high grade glioma undergoing standard of care therapy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption in adult patients with a first presentation of a glioblastoma (GBM) following a maximal safe surgical resection and standard chemo-radiation with temozolomide (TMZ) protocol and ready for the maintenance phase of the Stupp protocol with TMZ.
This is an open-label, Phase 1, dose-escalation study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and the recommended phase two dose (RPTD), and to assess the safety, preliminary efficacy, and pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of ABBV-321 for participants with advanced solid tumors likely to overexpress the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). The study will consist of 2 phases: Dose Escalation Phase and Expansion Phase.
