This is a randomized double-blind study is to test if the drug Lacosamide, an antiepileptic (anti-seizure)medication,can prevent seizures in patients who have had surgery for a brain cancer called malignant glioma.
Phase I/II Adaptive Randomized Trial of Bevacizumab versus Bevacizumab plus Vorinostat in Adults with Recurrent Glioblastoma (BTTC11-02)
The purpose of this study is to learn if bevacizumab when given with or without vorinostat can help to control malignant gliomas. The safety of these drug combinations will also be studied.
Phase III trial on Concurrent and Adjuvant Temozolomide Chemotherapy in Non-1p/19q Deleted Anaplastic Glioma. The CATNON Intergroup trial.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the addition of temozolomide treatment to radiotherapy or the addition of temozolomide treatment after completion of radiotherapy will improve the results of the treatment.
Natural History of Postoperative Cognitive Function, Quality Of Life, and Seizure Control in Patients with Supratentorial Low-Risk Grade II Glioma
The purpose of this study is to understand the effects of a brain tumor and surgery on the participant's cognitive function (thinking abilities, memory), quality of life, and seizures.
Phase II Double-Blinded Placebo-Controlled Study of Bevacizumab with or without AMG 386 in Patients with Recurrent Glioblastoma or Gliosarcoma
The purpose of this study is to find out if adding a new investigational drug, AMG 386 to bevacizumab is has a greater effect than bevacizamb alone.

This is a randomized investigational study is to determine the effects, good and/or bad, of the combination of low-dose whole brain radiation plus chemotherapy on PCNSL (Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma) and tumor versus chemotherapy alone.
A Phase II, Open-Label, Multi-Center Study of ANG1005 in Patients with Recurrent High-Grade Glioma
The main purpose of this research study is to see if an investigational drug, ANG1005, can shrink tumor cells in patients with high-grade glioma. Another purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of ANG1005 in patients.

Phase II/III Study of Image-Guided Radiosurgery/SBRT for Localized Spine Metastasis
There are 2 parts to this study (phase II and phase III). The part of the study in which a participant is enrolled depends on the timing of starting in the study. The purpose of the phase II part of the study is to treat the cancer that has spread to a participant's spine, and is causing pain, with image-guided radiosurgery/SBRT. The purpose of phase III is to compare the effects, good and/or bad, of image-guided radiosurgery/SBRT to standard radiation therapy to find out which treatment provides the most rapid pain relief with the least side effects.

Phase III Intergroup Study of Temozolomide Alone versus Radiotherapy with Concomitant and Adjuvant Temozolomide versus Radiotherapy with Adjuvant PCV Chemotherapy in Patients with 1p/19q Co-deleted Anaplastic Glioma
The two main reasons this research study is being done are to see if: •Patients improve if they get treatment with the combination of both radiation therapy and temozolomide chemotherapy as compared to patients who receive treatment with radiation therapy alone. •Patients treated with temozolomide therapy alone (no radiation therapy) have a better or worse quality of life than those patients who are treated with either the combination of radiation therapy and temozolomide or radiation therapy alone.
