23.0171:  A Phase 1b / 2 Open-label Study to Investigate the Safety, Tolerance and Efficacy of Drug Resistant Immunotherapy (DRI) With Activated, Gene Modified Allogeneic or Autologous γδ T Cells (DeltEx) in Combination With Maintenance Temozolomide (TMZ) in Subjects With Recurrent or Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma 

Principal Investigator: Akshitkumar Mistry, MD 

Phase:  I 

Description:  This multicenter, Phase 1b/2 study is being conducted to determine if the experimental cell therapy is safe, tolerable and can delay the return of cancer in patients with a newly diagnosed or recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) in combination with standard chemotherapy treatment temozolomide (TMZ). If there is a 25% or greater improvement in survival in this study then the therapy should be studied further.

22.0676: A Phase I Trial of Neoadjuvant Chemoimmunotherapy in Recurrent Glioblastoma

Principal Investigator: Donald Miller, MD, PhD

Phase: I

Description: The overall goal of this protocol is to characterize the safety and immunologic/genomic/metabolomic effects of neoadjuvant Pembrolizumab and Temozolomide in recurrent glioblastoma


22.0246:  Phase III Trial of Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) versus Hippocampal-Avoidant Whole Brain Radiotherapy (HA-WBRT) for 10 or Fewer Brain Metastases from Small Cell Lung Cancer

Principal Investigator: Neal Dunlap, MD

Description:  The purpose of this research study is to compare the effects (good or bad) of receiving stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) versus receiving hippocampal-avoidant whole brain radiotherapy (HA-WBRT) plus a drug called memantine, on brain metastases. Receiving SRS could control cancer that has spread to the brain. This study will allow the researchers to know whether this different approach is better, the same, or worse than the usual approach. To decide if it is better, the study doctors will be looking to see if the stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) helps to either slow the growth of cancer or stop it from coming back, compared to the usual approach. Doctors will also look to see if this new approach increases the life span of patients with this type of cancer, and if it helps with quality of life and cancer related symptoms. The usual approach for patients who are not in a study is treatment with whole brain radiation therapy alone (WBRT).
