Clinical Trials

Neuro-Oncology Clinical Research

The Center for Neuro-Oncology participates in, and develops, numerous research studies and clinical trials. The goal is to help provide greater understanding, develop new methods to detect and diagnose those diseases, and focus on innovative treatments that are not broadly available to patients.

Clinical trials offer patients some of the very latest in care while giving physicians and researchers the opportunity to study the safety and effectiveness of new treatments. Participation is voluntary.

Our experienced neuro-oncology team, carefully review study criteria, potential benefits, risks, and other considerations with eligible patients for enrollment into a clinical study. Once enrolled, our clinical research staff carefully monitors patients throughout the research trial and is available to answer questions.

To learn more about our ongoing trials available at the Center for Neuro-Oncology, please contact our nurse at 877-601-6282.

Glioblastoma Multiforme (Newly Diagnosed and Recurrent) and Anaplastic Astrocytoma (Newly Diagnosed and Recurrent)

3D-Prediction of Patient-Specific Response (3D-PREDICT) – Glioblastoma Multiforme

PI: Dr. Navid Redjal
Sponsor: Kiyatec

Meningioma

Observation or Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Grade II Meningioma that has been Completely Removed by Surgery (NRG- BN003)

PI: Dr. Navid Redjal
Co-I: Drs. Timothy Chen and Shirnett Williamson
Sponsor: NRG-NCI

Malignant Brain Tumors (including metastatic brain tumors and gliomas)

Molecular and Biochemical Characterization of Malignant Brain Tumors

The purpose of this research is to analyze and collect brain tumor tissue to help further molecularly and biochemically characterize these lesions to help better understand this disease and, ultimately, add to the scientific data to help find new and effective treatments.

PI: Dr. Navid Redjal
Co-I: Dr. Joshua Rabinowitz, Princeton University
Sponsor: Capital Health

OS and PFS after Neuro Oncological Surgery with or without Radiation Therapy

Assess current trends and quality of life outcomes in utilization of SRS (Stereotactic Radiosurgery) and WBRT (Whole Brain Radiation Therapy) in adult brain tumor patients.
