3D Ultra Sound for Resection of Brain Tumors
Phase 3 randomized open labeled trials will evaluate the 3 D navigable ultrasound (SonoWand) in improving the extent of resection in intra-axial brain tumors. All patients will undergo resective surgery. In the experimental arm, a navigable 3 D ultrasound will be used. In the standard arm, only navigation will be used. This study will help in assessing the usefulness sononavigation in improving radicality of resection in malignant gliomas and also to access the accuracy of SonoWand in predicting residue (histopathological correlation).
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
Inclusion Criteria:1. All radiologically-suspected, previously untreated, supratentorial malignant gliomas being considered for debulking surgery. 2. Adults (above 18 years) 3. Eligible for surgical therapy (craniotomy not stereotactic biopsy ) 4. Resectability : A lesion would be considered "resectable" if the surgeons feel that all the radiologically imaged lesion can be removed (with reasonable certainty). Only deemed resectable lesions will be included
Exclusion Criteria:1. Unfit for GA 2. Unwilling for the study 3. Unresectable lesion
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 0: Exploratory study involving very limited human exposure to the drug to determine whether a drug is modulating its target.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

Category of organization(s) involved as sponsor (and collaborator) supporting the trial.
The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
|Patients With Resectable Brain Tumors|
Routine presurgical evaluation of all patients will be conducted. The preoperative use of steroids, antiepileptics and other medications would be as per standard procedure and would be documented. In addition detailed MRI evaluation will be performed (including contrast enhanced MRI study, diffusion MRI, perfusion MR, MR spectroscopy, dynamic-contrast-enhanced MRI for permeability studies, as well as functional MRI, and tractography if required) not more than 1 week prior to the date of surgery. Navigation specific MR sequences would be performed in all patients (both arms).
