Randomized Phase III Trial of Memantine and Whole-Brain Radiotherapy with Or without Hippocampal Avoidance In Patients with Brain Metastases

To determine whether minimizing radiation dose to the hippocampus (a brain structure that is important for memory) during whole-brain radiation can decrease the risk of cognitive side effects after radiation therapy to the brain to using the usual whole-brain radiation plus memantine (a drug that can also reduce cognitive side effects of brain radiation).

Principal Investigator: Jeffrey Raizer

Randomized Phase II Trial of Hypofractionated Dose-Escalated Photon IMRT or Proton Beam Therapy Versus Conventional Photon Irradiation With Concomitant and Adjuvant Temozolomide In Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma

The purpose of this study is to compare a different radiation therapy schedule and higher radiation dose [higher dose group] to the standard dose of radiation therapy [standard dose group].

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.

A Phase I Study of Ad-RTS-hIL-12, an Inducible Adenoviral Vector Engineered to Express hIL-12 in the Presence of the Activator Ligand Veledimex in Subjects with Recurrent or Progressive Glioblastoma or Grade III Malignant Glioma

The main purpose of this study is to test the safety and the good and/or bad effects of combining Ad-RTS-hIL-12 with veledimex, resulting in the production of IL-12, in human research participants with brain tumors that are unresponsive to standard of care. This study will also look to see if the drug may have an effect on a patient's tumor.

A Phase II/III Randomized Trial of Veliparib or Placebo in Combination with Adjuvant Temozolomide in Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma with MGMT Promoter Hypermethylation

The purpose of this study is to compare the effects, good or bad of the usual treatment (temozolomide) with or without the addition of the investigational drug veliparib for people whose brain tumors show a change in a small region of DNA (gene) called O6-methylguanine methyltransferase (MGMT).

A Phase II Randomized Trial Comparing the Efficacy of Heat Shock Protein-Peptide Complex-96 (HSPPC-96)(NSC #725085, Alliance IND#15380) Vaccine Given with Bevacizumab Versus Bevacizumab Alone in the Treatment of Surgically Resectable Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM)

The purpose of this study is to compare what effects, good and/or bad, a vaccine called HSPPC-96 given with a drug called bevacizumab versus bevacizumab alone has on recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (GBM).

A Phase II Trial of Bevacizumab in Patients with Recurrent Solid Tumor Brain Metastases Who Have Failed Whole Brain Radiation Therapy

The purpose of this study is to see what effect bevacizumab, the drug being tested, will have on brain disease from solid tumor cancers. This study will not evaluate the effect of bevacizumab on the systemic solid tumor cancer.

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.
