A Clinical and Genetic Investigation of Pituitary and HYPOTHALAMIC Tumors and Related Disorders

Summary: There is a variety of tumors affecting the pituitary gland in childhood; some of these tumors (eg craniopharyngioma) are included among the most common central nervous system tumors in childhood. The gene(s) involved in the pathogenesis of these tumors are largely not known; their possible association with other developmental defects or inheritance pattern(s) has not been investigated. The present...

Neoadjuvant and Postoperative Treatment With Dabrafenib and Trametinib in BRAF Mutated Papillary Craniopharyngioma

Summary: Subjects with papillary craniopharyngioma harboring a BRAF mutation will be treated with a BRAF + MEK inhibitor (dabrafenib + trametinib) after informed consent. Study participants will be administered oral dabrafenib and trametinib until maximal tumor volume reduction assessed by MRI. Progression free survival, cognition, ophthalmologic status, hypothalamic status and quality of life will be asse...

Nivolumab and DAY101 for the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed or Recurrent Craniopharyngioma in Children and Young Adults

Summary: The current study assesses the tolerability and efficacy of combination therapy with PD-1 (nivolumab) and pan-RAF-kinase (DAY101) inhibition for the treatment of children and young adults with craniopharyngioma.

Phase II Trial of BRAF/MEK Inhibitors in Papillary Craniopharyngiomas

Summary: This phase II trial studies how well vemurafenib and cobimetinib work in treating patients with BRAF V600E mutation positive craniopharyngioma. Vemurafenib and cobimetinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Paraoptic Tumors : Study of the Radiological, Ophthalmological and Intraoperative Predictive Factors of Visual Recovery After Neurosurgical Removal

Summary: Paraoptic tumors - including mostly sellar meningiomas, pituitary gland adenomas and craniopharyngiomas - classically affect the visual function. Some preoperative factors, determined on retrospective studies, are known to constitute bad prognostic factors, such as duration of symptoms and retinal nerve fiber layer thinning on OCT. We propose to perform a single center prospective study in which d...

Evaluation of the SickKids Team Obesity Management Program (STOMP)

Summary: In January 2010 a new interdisciplinary clinic (STOMP) was created to provide care for children and adolescents with severe 'complex' obesity. As part of the program, a subset of adolescents undergo bariatric surgery. There is a paucity of literature evaluating outcomes of children and adolescents participating in a 'clinical' setting and even fewer reports of outcomes of severely obese pediatric ...

A Phase II Trial of Intensity-Modulated Proton Therapy for Incompletely Resected Craniopharyngioma and Observation for Craniopharyngioma After Radical Resection

Summary: Craniopharyngioma is a rare brain tumor that affects both children and adults. It arises in a region of the brain near the pituitary gland, visual pathways, and central blood vessels. Patients often present with headache, loss of vision or delayed growth. In some instances they may present with imbalance of water and salts in the body. The treatment for craniopharyngioma may be radical surgery or ...

Methionine PET/CT Studies In Patients With Cancer

Summary: The purpose of this study is to test the usefulness of imaging with radiolabeled methionine in the evaluation of children and young adults with tumor(s). Methionine is a naturally occurring essential amino acid. It is crucial for the formation of proteins. When labeled with carbon-11 (C-11), a radioactive isotope of the naturally occurring carbon-12, the distribution of methionine can be determine...

A Phase 0/Feasibility Trial of Tocilizumab in Children and Adolescents With Newly- Diagnosed or Recurrent/Progressive Adamantinomatous Craniopharyngioma

Summary: This study will be conducted in two phases. The first phase (phase 0) will be looking at patients with new or recurrent/ progressed craniopharyngioma tumors. These patients will be given one dose of tocilizumab before they have SOC surgery of their tumor. The objective of this phase is to see if drug reaches the tumor. If phase 0 is favorable and shows that drug is penetrating the tumor, the secon...

Proton Therapy Research Infrastructure- ProTRAIT- Neuro-oncology

Summary: The first proton therapy treatments in the Netherlands have taken place in 2018. Due to the physical properties of protons, proton therapy has tremendous potential to reduce the radiation dose to the healthy, tumour-surrounding tissues. In turn, this leads to less radiation-induced complications, and a decrease in the formation of secondary tumours. The Netherlands has spearheaded the development ...

KRANIOPHARYNGEOM Registry 2019 Multicenter Registry for Patients With Childhood-onset Craniopharyngioma, Xanthogranuloma, Cysts of Rathke's Pouch, Meningioma, Pituitary Adenoma, Arachnoid Cysts

Summary: KRANIOPHARYNGEOM Registry 2019 will prospectively collect and descriptively analyse data on diagnostics, treatment, and follow-up of patients with craniopharyngioma. In continuation of preceding studies also patients with xanthogranuloma, meningioma, pituitary adenoma, prolactinoma and cystic intracranial malformations will be registered.

Advancing Treatment for Pediatric Craniopharyngioma: Prospective Pilot Study Identifying Clinically Relevant Biological Targets for Medical Therapy

Summary: New data suggests that the current treatment for pediatric adamantinomatous craniopharyngioma (CPA) may not be as effective as it could be.
