This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of palbociclib isethionate in treating younger patients with central nervous system tumors that have grown, come back, or not responded to treatment. Palbociclib isethionate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
This pilot clinical trial studies gallium Ga 68-edotreotide (68Ga-DOTATOC) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) in finding brain tumors in younger patients. Diagnostic procedures, such as gallium Ga 68-edotreotide PET/CT imaging, may help find and diagnose brain tumors.
This clinical trial compares fluorine F 18 fluorodopa (18F FDOPA) positron emission tomography (PET) with standard magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in measuring tumors in patients with glioma that is newly diagnosed or recurrent (has returned). 18F FDOPA is a radioactive drug that binds to tumor cells and is captured in images by PET. Computed tomography (CT) and MRI are used with PET to describe information regarding the function, location, and size of the tumor. PET/CT or PET/MRI may be more accurate than standard MRI in helping doctors find and measure brain tumors.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and the safety of injecting HSV1716 (a new experimental therapy) into or near the tumor resection cavity. The injection will be done at the time of surgery. HSV1716 is a virus that has a gene which has been changed or removed (mutated) in such a way that lets the virus multiply in dividing cells of the tumor and kills the tumor cells.
This phase I/II trial studies lapatinib to see how well it works in treating young patients with recurrent or refractory central nervous system (CNS) tumors. Lapatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth.
