Brain/Neuro Cancer: Newly Diagnosed Clinical Trials

Showing 1-16 of 16 items
1.
  • Phase 3 Randomized, Double-blind, Controlled Study of ICT-107 in Glioblastoma
  • ICT-107 consists of dendritic cells, prepared from autologous mononuclear cells that are pulsed with six synthetic peptides that were derived from tumor associated antigens (TAA) present on glioblastoma tumor cells. This is a Phase 3 study to evaluate ICT-107 in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma. Subjects will be randomized to receive standard of care chemoradiation (temozolomide (TMZ) with either ICT-107 or a blinded control. Reinfusion with the pulsed dendritic cells should stimulate cytotoxic T cells to specifically target glioblastoma tumour cells.

  • Temozolomide With or Without Veliparib in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma Multiforme
  • This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well temozolomide and veliparib work compared to temozolomide alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme. 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. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether temozolomide is more effective with or without veliparib in treating glioblastoma multiforme.

  • Phase 2 Study of MEDI4736 in Patients With Glioblastoma
  • This is an open-label, non-randomized, multicenter Phase 2 study of MEDI4736 with three non-comparative cohorts: Cohort A: 37 subjects with newly diagnosed unmethylated MGMT GBM will receive MEDI4736 every 2 weeks in combination with standard radiotherapy. Cohort B: 30 bevacizumab-naïve subjects with recurrent GBM will receive MEDI4736 every 2 weeks as monotherapy. Cohort B2: 32 bevacizumab-naïve subjects with recurrent GBM will receive MEDI4736 every 2 weeks + bevacizumab every 2 weeks (10 mg/kg). Cohort B3: 32 bevacizumab-naïve subjects with recurrent GBM will receive MEDI4736 every 2 weeks + bevacizumab every 2 weeks (3 mg/kg). Cohort C: 17 bevacizumab-refractory subjects with recurrent GBM will receive MEDI4736 every 2 weeks in combination with continued bevacizumab.

  • Dose-Escalated Photon IMRT or Proton Beam Radiation Therapy Versus Standard-Dose Radiation Therapy and Temozolomide in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma
  • This randomized phase II trial studies how well dose-escalated photon intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or proton beam radiation therapy works compared with standard-dose radiation therapy when given with temozolomide in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays and other types of radiation to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Drugs, such as temozolomide, may make tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is not yet known whether dose-escalated photon IMRT or proton beam radiation therapy is more effective than standard-dose radiation therapy with temozolomide in treating glioblastoma.

  • Ph I Personalized NeoAntigen Cancer Vaccine With Radiotherapy for Patients With MGMT Unmethylated, Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma
  • This research study is studying a new type of vaccine as a possible treatment for patients with MGMT-unmethylated glioblastoma. This research study is a Phase I clinical trial, which tests the safety of an investigational intervention and also tries to define the appropriate dose of the intervention to use for further studies. "Investigational" means that the intervention is being studied and that research doctors are trying to find more about it. It also means that the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved the Personalized NeoAntigen Cancer Vaccine for any use in patients, including people with glioblastoma. The purpose of this study is to determine if it is possible to make and administer safely a vaccine against glioblastoma by using information gained from specific characteristics of the participants tumor. It is known that glioblastomas have mutations (changes in genetic material) that are specific to an individual patient's tumor. These mutations can cause the tumor cells to produce proteins that appear very different from the body's own cells. It is possible that these proteins used in a vaccine may induce strong immune responses, which may help the body fight any tumor cells that could cause the glioblastoma to come back in the future.
