Pediatric Sarcoma Clinical Trials

Showing 1-9 of 9 items
1.
  • Radiation Therapy With or Without Combination Chemotherapy or Pazopanib Hydrochloride Before Surgery in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Non-Rhabdomyosarcoma Soft Tissue Sarcomas That Can Be Removed by Surgery
  • This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well pazopanib hydrochloride, combination chemotherapy, and radiation therapy work and compares it to radiation therapy alone or in combination with pazopanib hydrochloride or combination chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas that can be removed by surgery. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as ifosfamide and doxorubicin hydrochloride, 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. Pazopanib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy works better when given with or without combination chemotherapy and/or pazopanib hydrochloride in treating patients with non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas.

  • Proton RT for the Treatment of Pediatric Rhabdomyosarcoma
  • The main purpose of this study is to see if using proton beam radiation therapy instead of photon beam radiation therapy can reduce side effects from radiation treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma. Photon beam radiation is the standard type of radiation for treating most rhabdomyosarcoma and many other types of cancer. Photon beam radiation enters the body and passes through healthy tissue, encounters the tumor, then leaves the body through healthy tissue. A beam of proton radiation enters the body and passes through healthy tissue, encounters tumor, but then stops. This means that less healthy tissue is affected by proton beam radiation than by photon beam radiation.

  • Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Ganitumab in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Metastatic Ewing Sarcoma
  • This randomized phase II trial studies how well combination chemotherapy with or without ganitumab works in treating patients with newly diagnosed Ewing sarcoma that has spread to other parts of the body. Monoclonal antibodies, such as ganitumab, may block tumor growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vincristine sulfate, doxorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, ifosfamide, and etoposide, 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. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without ganitumab in treating patients with newly diagnosed Ewing sarcoma.

  • A Phase 1 Study of the EZH2 Inhibitor Tazemetostat in Pediatric Subjects With Relapsed or Refractory INI1-Negative Tumors or Synovial Sarcoma
  • This is a Phase I, open-label, dose escalation and dose expansion study with a BID oral dose of tazemetostat. Subjects will be screened for eligibility within 14 days of the planned first dose of tazemetostat. A treatment cycle will be 28 days. Response assessment will be evaluated after 8 weeks of treatment and subsequently every 8 weeks while on study. The study has two parts: Dose Escalation and Dose Expansion. Dose escalation for subjects with the following relapsed/refractory malignancies: - Rhabdoid tumors: - Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (ATRT) - Malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT) - Rhabdoid tumor of kidney (RTK) - Selected tumors with rhabdoid features - INI1-negative tumors: - Epithelioid sarcoma - Epithelioid malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor - Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma - Myoepithelial carcinoma - Renal medullary carcinoma - Other INI1-negative malignant tumors (e.g., dedifferentiated chordoma) (with Sponsor approval) - Synovial Sarcoma with a SS18-SSX rearrangement Dose Expansion at the MTD or the RP2D, for subjects with rhabdoid tumors (MRT/ATRT/RTK/selected tumors with rhabdoid features).

  • Identification of Biomarkers for Patients With Vascular Anomalies
  • The study will use participants tissue previously collected and stored in a tissue bank maintained by the Department of Hematology/Oncology as well as tissue banked in the future from participants undergoing prescribed surgical resection of vascular anomalies of interest proposed in this study. The principle investigator and study staff will also obtain blood from these participants.
