The efficacy of traditional therapeutic approaches for aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC), such as surgery, embolization, sclerotherapy and radiotherapy, are often compromised for lesions in axial skeletons and adolescents complicated with pathological fracture. Therefore, denosumab, a new drug that has been successfully used in giant cell tumor of bone but has seldom used in ABC, was used to treat ABC in this trial.
Mental health issues in post-treatment adult cancer survivors are associated with multiple adverse outcomes and may represent a cancer health disparity for rural survivors. The purpose of this study is to test a stepped-care approach tailored to symptom severity based on recent American Society of Clinical Oncology guidelines for reducing emotional distress (anxiety and/or depressive symptoms) and improving secondary outcomes (sleep disturbance, fatigue, fear of recurrence, quality of life) in rural, post-treatment cancer survivors in community oncology settings and to examine intervention costs. The resultant intervention will have great potential for widespread dissemination since it will be manualized, delivered by telephone, and comprised of modules to allow customized treatments for individuals with different cancer types.
This is a phase 2 study of the Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor, PCI-32765 (ibrutinib), in combination with bendamustine and rituximab (BR) in subjects with previously treated aggressive B cell non Hodgkin lymphoma (aB-NHL) including any subtype of diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) primary mediastinal B cell lymphoma (PMBCL), double and triple hit DLBCL, transformed indolent lymphoma, unclassifiable aggressive B cell lymphoma between DLBCL and Burkitt lymphoma. Patients with CNS involvement (primary or secondary) will be excluded. Ibrutinib (IMBRUVICA®; PCI-32765; JNJ-54179060) is a first-in-class, potent, orally-administered covalently-binding small molecule inhibitor of Bruton's tyrosine kinase currently FDA approved for the treatment of relapsed Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia (WM).It is under constant investigation for the treatment of other B-cell malignancies. The initial approval of ibrutinib was received on 13 November 2013 by the United States Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of adult patients with MCL who have received at least 1 prior therapy. Ibrutinib has not been approved for marketing for the treatment of aggressive B cell lymphoma although Phase I trial in this setting has already been published. In Israel ibrutinib is registered for the treatment of MCL and CLL.
This randomized phase II trial studies how well simvastatin works in reducing pancreatitis (the inflammation of the pancreas) in patients with pancreatitis that occurs more than once (recurrent), has worsened quickly (acute), or has persisted or progressed over a long period of time (chronic). Simvastatin may decrease the inflammation of the pancreas by modulating the immune response responsible for inflammation. It is not yet known if simvastatin may be an effective treatment for pancreatitis.
This is a prospective, single arm,single centre open-label, phase II study in relapsed or refractory DLBCL and MCL non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), not suitable to other therapies, included HDCT, or patients relapsed after high-dose chemotherapy (HDCT) with autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT), treated with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy with 90Y-Dotatoc. Each patient will receive a maximum cumulative 90Y-DOTATOC activity of 11.1 GBq (300 mCi), divided into 4 cycles (1.8 - 2.8 gigabequerel (GBq) for each cycle) with an interval of 6 - 8 weeks between cycles. The 90Y-DOTATOC will be slowly infused intravenously. 35 patients will be enrolled in 36 months in two stages (18 patients in the first stage, if 2 or fewer patients will show an objective response, the study will be closed).
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and how well tipifarnib works in treating patients with chronic myeloid leukemia, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, or undifferentiated myeloproliferative disorders. Tipifarnib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
This pilot clinical trial studies proton beam radiation therapy in treating patients with thoracic cancer that has come back and have received prior radiation therapy. Proton beam radiation therapy uses high energy protons to kill tumor cells and may cause less damage to normal tissue.
Whether low-dose radiation in addition to Taxotere and Erbitux improves the response rate of patients with recurrent unresectable head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
The aim of this study is to determine the activity, to assess the safety and tolerance of BKM120 in adult patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer progressive under platin and cetuximab-based chemotherapy.
This phase I clinical trial is studies the side effects and best dose of giving veliparib together with temozolomide in treating patients with acute leukemia. Veliparib may stop the growth of cancer 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 cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving veliparib together with temozolomide may kill more cancer cells.
