This study is for pediatric patients who have been diagnosed with Brain Tumors. The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of a home-based, computerized cognitive training program for patients with pediatric brain tumors who are undergoing cranial radiation therapy (CRT). Participants can expect to receive treatment on this study for about 5 to 9 weeks. Participants will complete additional testing sessions about 6 months after completing the cognitive training program.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with a neuroblastoma (NBL). The purpose of this study is to find out if we can improve the treatment for subjects with high-risk NBL by adding the experimental drug 131I-MIBG or the experimental drug Crizotinib to recommended therapy. The secondary purpose is to find out if we can reduce the number of stem cell transplants from two to one if we give the experimental drug 131I-MIBG during Induction, and use different drugs as part of the transplant chemotherapy given prior to stem cell infusion during Consolidation. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 2 years. Researchers would like to continue to follow participants health for up to 10 years.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma. The purpose of this study is to learn if the treatment you received for your high-risk neuroblastoma has affected your health overtime. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 12 weeks.
To test the efficacy, safety and neurocognitive outcomes of advanced NSCLC patients, following stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for 1 inoperable brain metastasis or 2-10 brain metastases, treated with NovoTTF-100M and supportive treatment compared to supportive treatment alone.
Participants will be randomized to the Supportive Care Group and will receive radiosurgery followed by supportive care, or to the NovoTTF-110M group who will receive radiosurgery then begin using the study device with supportive care. The device is to be worn at least 18 hours every day. There is a provision for those randomized to the supportive care arm to crossover to the study device after tumor has recurred twice. All participants will be seen every 8 weeks in the clinic until they progress a second time. Once study treatment is terminated, they will return to the clinic 8 weeks following the last visit, then be contacted once per month by telephone.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Central Nervous System (CNS) Tumors. The investigational drugs in this study are Nivolumab and Ipilimumab. The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of Nivolumab when given alone or when combined with Ipilimumab. The duration of patient participation may be more than 3 years. If enrolled in treatment, the exact length of time will depend on the patients response to treatment.
Subjects are being asked to volunteer for a research study because they have their first anaplastic astrocytoma (AA) tumor progression (worsening) or recurrence.
The purpose of this study is to measure how well and how safe eflornithine is in combination with lomustine, compared to lomustine taken alone, in treating patients whose anaplastic astrocytoma has come back after radiation and chemotherapy. Eflornithine is an experimental drug that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved it for use by the general public. Lomustine has been approved by the FDA in the United States for this patient population.
You are invited to volunteer for a research study because you previously consented to participate in a companion study BMS 498, but did not meet eligibility criteria for MGMT status; therefore, you are newly diagnosed with glioblastoma and the tumor has a specific profile that is referred to as MGMT methylated.
This study will test the effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of an investigational drug called nivolumab (also known as BMS-936558). Nivolumab is an antibody (a type of human protein) that is being tested to see if it will allow your body's immune system to work against tumor cells.You will also receive standard radiation therapy in unison with temozolomide and the study drug treatment, nivolumab or placebo.
This research study is for patients who have completed all scheduled surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy for their cancer within the last 6-12 months and are currently having some type of sleep disturbance. While there is no standard treatment for sleep disturbance for cancer survivors, people who do not take part in this study may take over-the-counter or prescription medications, receive cognitive behavioral therapy, or exercise as a means of attempting to manage their sleep problems.
Sleep disturbance, particularly insomnia, is a common problem for cancer survivors. Insomnia can be described as excessive daytime napping, difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, or waking up earlier than you would like. Insomnia can increase fatigue, impair physical function, impair immune function, cause circadian rhythms (known as your biological clock) to be disrupted and decrease quality of life.
Because there is no ideal standard of care for effectively treating sleep problems in cancer survivors, the purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of three different treatments for improving sleep problems and determine which is best. The three treatments are yoga, survivorship health education, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT-I).
Study participation will be approximately 8 months.
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness (how well the drug works), safety, and tolerability of an investigational drug called nivolumab (also known as BMS-936558). Nivolumab is an antibody (a type of human protein) that is being tested to see if it will allow the body's immune system to work against tumor cells. The effectiveness of nivolumab in glioblastoma (GBM or brain cancer) will be determined by comparing the survival of subjects who receive the investigational drug nivolumab combined with radiotherapy to those who receive temozolomide with radiotherapy, an accepted therapy for newly diagnosed GBM.
If you agree to be in this study, a biopsy of your tumor will tested for a specific gene. If you have that gene, you will be eligible to participate in the study. In addition to taking either nivolumab or temozolomide in combination with radiotherapy you will be asked to complete other study procedures. Those study procedures may include physical exams, medical history, blood draws, MRI scans, questionnaires.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of adding lapatinib to standard whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT). The study will try to find out whether WBRT or lapatinib plus WBRT is better at safely improving tumor control. In this study, subjects will receive either lapatinib plus WBRT or WBRT alone.
