  • Preoperative Alpha Blockade for Pheochromocytoma

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Pheochromocytoma is a rare, catecholamine (ex. adrenaline) secreting tumor that requires preoperative alpha blockade to minimize intraoperative hemodynamic instability, thereby reducing intra- and postoperative morbidity and mortality. Phenoxybenzamine is a non-selective alpha blocker that is significantly more expensive and is associated with increased adverse effects in comparison with selective alpha blockers such as doxazosin. Retrospective studies show minimal differences in hemodynamic instability and no differences in postoperative morbidity and mortality between selective vs. non-selective alpha blockers. This study is a randomized controlled trial that will compare hemodynamic instability, morbidity, mortality, cost, and quality of life between patients blocked with phenoxybenzamine vs. doxazosin.

  • Rehabilitation and Longitudinal Follow-up of Cognition in Adult Lower Grade Gliomas

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Patients with glial brain tumors have increasingly improved outcomes, with median survival of 5-15 years. However, the treatments, including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, often lead to impaired attention, working memory, and other cognitive functions. These cognitive deficits frequently have significant impact on patient quality of life. Although currently, there is no established standard of care to treat cognitive deficits in brain tumor patients, standard cognitive rehabilitative treatments have been developed for those with traumatic brain injury and stroke. However, the feasibility and efficacy of these cognitive treatments in individuals with brain tumors remains unclear. Determine the feasibility of standard and innovative cognitive rehabilitation in lower grade gliomas (LrGG) patients. Feasibility will be the percentage of subjects who complete all of the intervention exercises. The intervention will be considered feasible for a larger-scale efficacy study if greater than 80% of the subjects complete the intervention. Cognitive and HRQOL will be assessed pre-intervention and compared to post-intervention (3 months from baseline) and 6-month (9 months from baseline) follow-up. Changes in cognition and HRQOL will be correlated with serial imaging at pre-intervention compared to short and intermediate-term follow-up e.g. in T2 tumor volume, Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) scalar quantification, resting-state Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) connectivity. Participants will first be offered the in-person cognitive rehabilitation option (Cohort 1). If they are unable to participate because of logistic challenges, they will randomly be assigned to the iPad based intervention (Cohort 2), or automated texting program (Cohort 3). Participants will complete standardized cognitive testing and quality of life assessments at baseline, immediately post intervention and 6 months after intervention. Clinical data will be collected at the time of each assessment. This will include changes in serial imaging e.g. in T2 tumor volume, DTI scalar quantification, resting-state fMRI connectivity. Predict optimal time for cognitive rehabilitation to abrogate tumor and treatment-related effects on cognition and HRQOL in adult LrGG. Enroll 100 newly diagnosed patients with a goal of enrolling 50 who will receive radiation treatment after surgery (Cohort 4) and 50 who will not receive radiation after surgery (Cohort 5). Patients in both groups will undergo longitudinal global cognitive and HRQOL assessments at baseline prior to surgery, after surgery, 3 months after surgery and every 6 months for 3 years. Clinical data will be collected at the time of each assessment. This will include changes in serial imaging e.g. in T2 tumor volume, DTI scalar quantification, resting-state fMRI connectivity.

  • Response Monitoring Trial in Patients With Suspected Recurrence of Glioblastoma

    open to eligible people ages 18-99

    It was previously shown that 18F-DOPA PET imaging results in intended management changes in 41% of brain tumor patients. However, its impact on patient outcome defined as survival, costs, and/or quality of life has not been demonstrated. Regulatory agencies require randomized trials to determine the impact of PET on patient management and outcome. In this study we hypothesize that the addition of 18F-DOPA PET will improve patient outcome by more accurately identifying presence or absence of tumor recurrence than conventional imaging.

  • Targeted therapy directed by genetic testing in treating patients with advanced solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma

    “Will identifying genetic abnormalities in tumor cells help doctors plan better, more personalized treatment for cancer patients?”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

  • Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Pediatric Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas, or Histiocytic Disorders (The Pediatric MATCH Screening Trial)

    open to eligible people ages 12 months to 21 years

    This Pediatric MATCH screening and multi-sub-study phase II trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in pediatric patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, or histiocytic disorders that have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and/or for which no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong survival. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic changes or abnormalities (mutations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic mutation, and may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors or non-Hodgkin lymphomas.

  • Tazemetostat in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, or Histiocytic Disorders With EZH2, SMARCB1, or SMARCA4 Gene Mutations (A Pediatric MATCH Treatment Trial)

    open to eligible people ages 12 months to 21 years

    This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well tazemetostat works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment and have EZH2, SMARCB1, or SMARCA4 gene mutations. Tazemetostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Trial of Newly Diagnosed High Grade Glioma Treated With Concurrent Radiation Therapy, Temozolomide and BMX-001

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a Phase 2 study of newly diagnosed patients with high grade glioma (HGG) undergoing standard radiation therapy and temozolomide treatment. BMX-001 added to radiation therapy and temozolomide has the potential not only to benefit the survival of high grade glioma patients but also to protect against deterioration of cognition and impairment of quality of life. BMX-001 will be given subcutaneously first with a loading dose zero to four days prior to the start of chemoradiation and followed by twice a week doses at one-half of the loading dose for the duration of radiation therapy plus two weeks. Both safety and efficacy of BMX-001 will be evaluated. Impact on cognition will also be assessed. Eighty patients will be randomized to the treatment arm that will receive BMX-001 while undergoing chemoradiation and 80 patients randomized to receive chemoradiation alone. The sponsor hypothesizes that BMX-001 when added to standard radiation therapy and temozolomide will be safe at pharmacologically relevant doses in patients with newly diagnosed high grade glioma. The sponsor also hypothesizes that the addition of BMX-001 will positively impact the overall survival and improve objective measures of cognition in newly diagnosed high grade glioma patients.

  • Ulixertinib in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, or Histiocytic Disorders With MAPK Pathway Mutations (A Pediatric MATCH Treatment Trial)

    open to eligible people ages 12 months to 21 years

    This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well ulixertinib works in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body (advanced), non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders that have a genetic alteration (mutation) in a signaling pathway called MAPK. A signaling pathway consists of a group of molecules in a cell that control one or more cell functions. Genes in the MAPK pathway are frequently mutated in many types of cancers. Ulixertinib may stop the growth of cancer cells that have mutations in the MAPK pathway.

  • Veliparib, Radiation Therapy, and Temozolomide in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Malignant Glioma Without H3 K27M or BRAFV600 Mutations

    open to eligible people ages 3-25

    This phase II trial studies how well veliparib, radiation therapy, and temozolomide work in treating patients with newly diagnosed malignant glioma without H3 K27M or BRAFV600 mutations. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving veliparib, radiation therapy, and temozolomide may work better in treating patients with newly diagnosed malignant glioma without H3 K27M or BRAFV600 mutations compared to radiation therapy and temozolomide alone.

  • Vemurafenib in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, or Histiocytic Disorders With BRAF V600 Mutations (A Pediatric MATCH Treatment Trial)

    open to eligible people ages 12 months to 21 years

    This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well vemurafenib works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with BRAF V600 mutations that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment. Vemurafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
