Central Nervous System Tumor clinical trials at UC Cancer
8 research studies open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 2-17
This is a Phase 1/2, multicenter, open-label trial of avapritinib in patients aged 2 to less than 18 years of age with with relapsed/refractory (R/R) solid tumors with mutations (including non-synonymous point mutations, insertions, and deletions) in KIT or PDGFRA, or gliomas with the H3K27M mutation, and no available alternative treatment options. This is a single-arm trial in which all patients will receive avapritinib. The study consists of 2 parts: dose confirmation, safety, and PK (Part 1) and initial efficacy, safety, and PK at the Part 2 recommended dose (Part 2).
A Study of Radiation Therapy With Temozolomide Versus Radiation Therapy With PCV Chemotherapy in Brain Tumors
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether giving radiation with concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide versus radiation with adjuvant PCV is more effective in treating anaplastic glioma or low grade glioma.

A Study of Repotrectinib in Pediatric and Young Adult Subjects Harboring ALK, ROS1, OR NTRK1-3 Alterations
open to eligible people ages 0-25
Phase 1 will evaluate the safety and tolerability at different dose levels of repotrectinib in pediatric and young adult subjects with advanced or metastatic malignancies harboring anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK), receptor tyrosine kinase encoded by the gene ROS1 (ROS1), or neurotrophic receptor kinase genes encoding TRK kinase family (NTRK1-3) alterations to estimate the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) or Maximum Administered Dose (MAD) and select the Pediatric Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D). Phase 2 will determine the anti-tumor activity of repotrectinib in pediatric subjects with advanced or metastatic malignancies harboring ALK, ROS1, or NTRK1-3 alterations.
open to eligible people ages 4-17
This phase III trial compares memantine to usual treatment in treating patients with brain tumors that are newly diagnosed or has come back (recurrent). Memantine may block receptors (parts of nerve cells) in the brain known to contribute to a decline in cognitive function. Giving memantine may make a difference in cognitive function (attention, memory, or other thought processes) in children and adolescents receiving brain radiation therapy to treat a primary brain tumor.
ONC206 for Treatment of Newly Diagnosed, or Recurrent Diffuse Midline Gliomas, and Other Recurrent Malignant CNS Tumors (PNOC 023)
open to eligible people ages 2-21
This phase I trial studies the effects and best dose of ONC206 alone or in combination with radiation therapy in treating patients with diffuse midline gliomas that is newly diagnosed or has come back (recurrent) or other recurrent primary malignant CNS tumors. ONC206 is a recently discovered compound that may stop cancer cells from growing. This drug has been shown in laboratory experiments to kill brain tumor cells by causing a so called "stress response" in tumor cells. This stress response causes cancer cells to die, but without affecting normal cells. ONC206 alone or in combination with radiation therapy may be effective in treating newly diagnosed or recurrent diffuse midline gliomas and other recurrent primary malignant CNS tumors.
REGN2810 in Pediatric Patients With Relapsed, Refractory Solid, or Central Nervous System (CNS) Tumors and Safety and Efficacy of REGN2810 in Combination With Radiotherapy in Pediatric Patients With Newly Diagnosed or Recurrent Glioma
open to eligible people ages up to 25 years
Phase 1: - To confirm the safety and anticipated recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of REGN2810 (cemiplimab) for children with recurrent or refractory solid or Central Nervous System (CNS) tumors - To characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of REGN2810 given in children with recurrent or refractory solid or CNS tumors Phase 2 (Efficacy Phase): - To confirm the safety and anticipated RP2D of REGN2810 to be given concomitantly with conventionally fractionated or hypofractionated radiation among patients with newly diagnosed diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) - To confirm the safety and anticipated RP2D of REGN2810 given concomitantly with conventionally fractionated or hypofractionated radiation among patients with newly diagnosed high-grade glioma (HGG) - To confirm the safety and anticipated RP2D of REGN2810 given concomitantly with re-irradiation in patients with recurrent HGG - To assess PK of REGN2810 in pediatric patients with newly diagnosed DIPG, newly diagnosed HGG, or recurrent HGG when given in combination with radiation - To assess anti-tumor activity of REGN2810 in combination with radiation in improving overall survival at 12 months (OS12) among patients with newly diagnosed DIPG - To assess anti-tumor activity of REGN2810 in combination with radiation in improving progression-free survival at 12 months (PFS12) among patients with newly diagnosed HGG - To assess anti-tumor activity of REGN2810 in combination with radiation in improving overall survival at OS12 among patients with recurrent HGG
Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Pemigatinib in Participants With Previously Treated Glioblastoma or Other Primary Central Nervous System Tumors Harboring Activating FGFR1-3 Alterations
open to eligible people ages 18-99
This is an open-label, monotherapy study of pemigatinib in participants with recurrent glioblatoma (GBM) or other primary CNS tumors with an activating FGFR1-3 mutation or fusion/rearrangement. This study consists of 3 cohorts, Cohorts A, B, and C, and will enroll approximately 82, 82, and 25 participants into each cohort, respectively. Participants will receive pemigatinib 13.5 mg QD on a 2-week on-therapy and 1-week off-therapy schedule as long as they are receiving benefit and have not met any criteria for study withdrawal.
Trial of CUDC-907 in Children and Young Adults With Relapsed or Refractory Solid Tumors, CNS Tumors, or Lymphoma
open to eligible people ages 1-21
This research study is evaluating a novel drug called CUDC-907 as a possible treatment for resistant (refractory) pediatric solid tumors (including neuroblastoma), lymphoma, or brain tumors.
