This is a safety and tolerability study looking at the addition of avelumab, an immune checkpoint inhibitor, to standard therapy of temozolomide and radiotherapy in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme. All patients will be receiving active therapy. Patients will begin the avelumab within 3 weeks of finishing their radiotherapy. Avelumab will be given at a dose of 10mg/kg IV every 2 weeks concomitantly with the monthly temozolomide. Avelumab will be continued for a total of 52 weeks.
The purpose of the study is to characterize the safety and tolerability of avelumab in combination with Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy (LITT) for blood barrier disruption in patients with recurrent glioblastoma.
This phase I trial studies how well AXL inhibitor BGB324 works in treating participants with glioblastoma that has come back who are undergoing surgery. AXL inhibitor BGB324 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
The aim of this Phase III study is to evaluate the superiority of dose-dense temozolomide (ddTMZ) followed by bevacizumab at ddTMZ failure for glioblastoma at first recurrence or progression, comparing to bevacizumab alone.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of BGB-290 and temozolomide in treating adolescents and young adults with IDH1/2-mutant grade I-IV glioma that is newly diagnosed or has come back. BGB-290 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving BGB-290 and temozolomide may work better in treating adolescents and young adults with IDH1/2-mutant grade I-IV glioma.
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and how well BGB-290 and temozolomide work in treating patients with gliomas (brain tumors) with IDH1/2 mutations that have come back. BGB-290 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving BGB-290 and temozolomide may work better in treating patients with recurrent gliomas.
Neuro-oncological trials may fail due to the drug never getting to the intended target (i.e. within the tumor micro environment). Also, changes' occurring in tumor cells when removed from patients and grown in-vitro is another limiting factor influencing the clinical success. Important questions are therefore: 1. Does the drug get there? 2. Does the drug do what it is intended to do? To improve chances of clinical success there is a need for rational and intelligent selection of potential drugs in future trials. This is an initiative for analyzing tumor concentration of preoperative administered repurposed drugs
This trial studies the use of blood-based bioenergetic profiling and cognitive testing in assessing patients with glioblastoma undergoing chemoradiation therapy. The purpose of this pilot research study is to find out if it is possible to see changes in participants' mitochondria, parts of a cell that produce energy, that might be associated with changes in participants' brain function after chemoradiation therapy.
This clinical trial increases radiation to areas of the brain considered to be at risk for cancer. The at-risk areas are identified by a biological MRI scan. The study will look at side effects of the radiation and overall survival.
This research is being done to test if it is safe to give nivolumab with targeted immunotherapy drugs for recurrent glioblastoma (GBM), a type of brain tumor. The study doctors believe that giving immunotherapy drugs that match the biomarkers in a tumor will help the immune system fight the tumor. Tumor tissue collected during surgery will be tested for certain biomarkers to determine which immunotherapy might best target the tumor. The combination immunotherapy arms include: Arm A: Nivolumab + anti-GITR Arm B: Nivolumab + IDO1 inhibitor Arm C: Nivolumab + Ipilimumab
