The proposed Phase IIB/III randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in subjects with newly diagnosed primary glioblastoma multiforme (ndGBM) aims to compare the efficacy and safety of 2-OHOA versus placebo, given with standard of care (SoC) therapy of radiation therapy plus temozolomide (TMZ), followed by an adjuvant treatment of 6 month period of TMZ and then 2-OHOA or placebo in monotherapy.
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) PET imaging, may help find and diagnose cancer. It may also help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying FLT PET imaging in patients with cancer.
This is a prospective, non-randomized, observational registry study evaluating a patient-specific ex vivo 3D (EV3D) assay for drug response using a patient's own biopsy or resected tumor tissue for assessing tissue response to therapy in patients with advanced cancers, including ovarian cancer, high-grade gliomas, and high-grade rare tumors.
Intramedullary spinal cord tumours (IMSCTs) are a type of tumour that arises from cells within the spinal cord. They are rare, accounting for around 4-10% of central nervous system tumours. They commonly present as back/neck pain and have poor outcomes if not treated. IMSCTs fall into various subtypes. Around 90% are either ependymomas or astrocytomas. Ependymomas are usually quite distinct from the surrounding tissue and therefore can often be treated successfully with surgery. In contrast, astrocytomas tend to invade the surrounding tissue and, as a result, generally cannot be entirely surgically removed. Radiotherapy is ...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to assess the feasibility, safety and efficacy of multiple 4SCAR-T cell therapy which targets GD2, PSMA and CD276 surface antigens in patients with relapsed and refractory neuroblastoma (NB). Another goal of the study is to understand the function of the multi-CAR-T cells and their persistency in the patients.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 67Cu-SARTATE in pediatric patients with high-risk neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma is the most frequent extracranial childhood tumor, with an annual incidence of approximately 10.2 per million children. Staging of the disease can be done by different imaging strategies (CT, MRI, scintigraphy and PET/CT). Discrepancies may be observed among these different strategies resulting in different treatment strategies. The goal of this study is to assess the feasibility and safety of 68Ga-DOTATATE and to compare it to 123I-MIBG when investigating neuroblastoma.
This clinical trial is a pragmatic study aiming to evaluate the innocuity/safety profile of the PET radiotracer 68Ga-DOTA-TATE, and to establish the procedure as a routine standard-of-care diagnostic tool for all neuro-endocrine cancer patients. It is a single-center study, but with recruitment across all Canada. The trial is prospective, non-randomized, open-label and with no control group. The superiority of this procedure over the former standard-of-care (Octreoscan) was already established in previous and numerous studies across the world. As such, the current trial aims to gather data to further support the implementation of...
This is a research study to collect information regarding usefulness of positron emission tomography (PET) scans using a special dye called 68Ga-DOTATATE for patients with neuroendocrine tumours by determining the number of of patients whose clinical management was changed as a result of the scans.
The study population consists of patients who undergo resection for somatostatin receptor-positive (SSTR-positive) CNS tumors, focusing on meningioma, and including esthesioneuroblastoma, hemangioblastoma, medulloblastoma, paraganglioma, pituitary adenoma, and SSTR-positive systemic cancers metastatic to the brain, such as small cell carcinoma of the lung. The study indication is to determine the diagnostic utility of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/MRI in the diagnosis and management of patients with SSTR-positive CNS tumors, specifically whether 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/MRI demonstrates utility distinguishing between tumor recurrence and post-treatment...
