Astrocytoma clinical trials at UC Davis
4 research studies open to eligible people

  • A Study of Experimental Autologous Dendritic (immune) Cells With Autologous Tumor Antigens for Newly-Diagnosed Glioblastoma

    open to eligible people ages 18-70

    This is a single-arm, open-label phase II clinical trial in which approximately 55 patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM) will be enrolled with the intent to receive an autologous dendritic cell vaccine consisting of autologous dendritic cells loaded with autologous tumor-associated antigens (AV-GBM-1).

  • A Study of the Effectiveness and Safety of Experimental Pembrolizumab Plus Lenvatinib for Selected Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of combination therapy with pembrolizumab (MK-3475) and lenvatinib (E7080/MK-7902) in participants with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), ovarian cancer, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer (CRC), glioblastoma (GBM), or biliary tract cancers (BTC). Participants will be enrolled into initial tumor-specific cohorts which will be expanded if adequate efficacy is determined.

  • A Study of the Experimental Medicine Olaparib For Advanced Glioma, Cholangiocarcinoma, or Solid Tumors With IDH1 or IDH2 Mutations

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies how well olaparib works in treating patients with glioma, cholangiocarcinoma, or solid tumors with IDH1 or IDH2 mutations that have spread to other places in the body (metastatic) and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (refractory). Olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Measuring enzymes (protein molecules) (Cytochrome C Oxidase Activity) in newly diagnosed brain cancer

    β€œCan the amount of enzymes in brain cancer (glioblastoma multiform) help predict overall survival and disease progression?”

    open to eligible people ages 21 years and up

    This is a multi-institutional, consortium-based, non-interventional prospective blinded endpoints clinical study to determine whether high activity of Cytochrome C Oxidase (CcO) in tumor specimens from subjects with newly diagnosed primary GBM is associated with shortened OS (primary outcome) and PFS (secondary outcome) times.
