NCT ID: NCT02194452 Withdrawn - Adult Glioblastoma Clinical Trials

Efficacy of 68Ga-DOTATOC Positron Emission Tomography (PET) CT in Children and Young Adults With Brain Tumors

Start date: September 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

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.

NCT ID: NCT02175745 Terminated - Adult Glioblastoma Clinical Trials

18F FDOPA PET/CT or PET/MRI in Measuring Tumors in Patients With Newly Diagnosed or Recurrent Gliomas

Start date: December 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

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.

NCT ID: NCT01088763 Terminated - Clinical trials for Unspecified Childhood Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific

Gamma-Secretase Inhibitor RO4929097 in Treating Young Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Solid Tumors, CNS Tumors, Lymphoma, or T-Cell Leukemia

Start date: March 2010
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

This phase I/II clinical trial is studying the side effects and best dose of gamma-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 and to see how well it works in treating young patients with relapsed or refractory solid tumors, CNS tumors, lymphoma, or T-cell leukemia. Gamma-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

NCT ID: NCT01076530 Completed - Clinical trials for Recurrent Childhood Medulloblastoma

Vorinostat and Temozolomide in Treating Young Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Primary Brain Tumors or Spinal Cord Tumors

Start date: February 2010
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of vorinostat when given together with temozolomide in treating young patients with relapsed or refractory primary brain tumors or spinal cord tumors. Vorinostat 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 or by stopping them from dividing. Vorinostat may help temozolomide work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drug.

NCT ID: NCT00994500 Completed - Clinical trials for Unspecified Childhood Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific

Vorinostat and Bortezomib in Treating Young Patients With Refractory or Recurrent Solid Tumors, Including Central Nervous System Tumors and Lymphoma

Start date: August 2009
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of vorinostat when given together with bortezomib in treating young patients with refractory or recurrent solid tumors, including CNS tumors and lymphoma. Vorinostat and bortezomib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

NCT ID: NCT00946335 Completed - Clinical trials for Recurrent Childhood Medulloblastoma

ABT-888 and Temozolomide in Treating Young Patients With Recurrent or Refractory CNS Tumors

Start date: July 2009
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of ABT-888 when given in combination with temozolomide in treating young patients with recurrent or refractory CNS tumors. ABT-888 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 or by stopping them from dividing. Giving ABT-888 together with temozolomide may kill more tumor cells.

NCT ID: NCT00919750 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Recurrent Childhood Medulloblastoma

Collecting and Storing Blood and Brain Tumor Tissue Samples From Children With Brain Tumors

Start date: March 2005
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The purpose of this study is to collect and store brain tissue samples and blood from children with brain cancer that will be tested in the laboratory. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue and blood from patients to test in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.

NCT ID: NCT00679354 Completed - Clinical trials for Recurrent Childhood Cerebellar Astrocytoma

Cilengitide in Treating Younger Patients With Recurrent or Progressive High-Grade Glioma That Has Not Responded to Standard Therapy

Start date: June 2008
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This phase II trial studies how well cilengitide works in treating younger patients with recurrent or progressive high-grade glioma that has not responded to standard therapy. Cilengitide may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

NCT ID: NCT00638898 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific

Busulfan, Melphalan, Topotecan Hydrochloride, and a Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed or Relapsed Solid Tumor

Start date: December 11, 2006
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

RATIONALE: Giving high-dose chemotherapy before an autologous stem cell transplant stops the growth of tumor cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. Giving colony-stimulating factors, such as G-CSF, helps stem cells move from the bone marrow to the blood so they can be collected and stored. Chemotherapy is then given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well giving busulfan, melphalan, and topotecan hydrochloride together with a stem cell transplant works in treating patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed solid tumor.

NCT ID: NCT00363272 Completed - Clinical trials for Unspecified Childhood Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific

Ispinesib in Treating Young Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Solid Tumors or Lymphoma

Start date: June 2006
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of ispinesib in treating young patients with relapsed or refractory solid tumors or lymphoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as ispinesib, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing
