Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for neuroblastoma treatment. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

  • Response and Biology-Based Risk Factor-Guided Therapy in Treating Younger Patients with Non-high Risk Neuroblastoma

    This phase III trial studies how well response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy works in treating younger patients with non-high risk neuroblastoma. Sometimes a tumor may not need treatment until it progresses. In this case, observation may be sufficient. Measuring biomarkers in tumor cells may help plan when effective treatment is necessary and what the best treatment is. Response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy may be effective in treating patients with non-high risk neuroblastoma and may help to avoid some of the risks and side effects related to standard treatment.

  • Pediatric MATCH: Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Pediatric Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas, or Histiocytic Disorders

    This 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.

  • A Study to Investigate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Clinical Activity of GSK525762 in Subjects With NUT Midline Carcinoma (NMC) and Other Cancers

    This study is divided into two parts; Part 1 of the study is a dose escalation phase to select the recommended dose for Part 2 based on the safety, pharmacokinetic, and pharmacodynamic profiles observed after oral administration of GSK525762 in the following subjects: NMC, small cell lung cancer (SCLC), non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), colorectal cancer (CRC), neuroblastoma (NB), castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), estrogen receptor positive (ER positive) breast cancer, and MYCN driven solid tumor subjects. Part 2 of the study will explore the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and clinical activity of the recommended dose from Part 1 in cohorts comprised of NMC, small cell lung cancer (SCLC), castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), and estrogen receptor positive (ER positive) breast cancer subjects. Approximately 60 subjects will be enrolled in the Part 1 and approximately 150 subjects will be enrolled in Part 2. A sub-study will be opened in Part 1 to approximately 10-12 subjects in the United States to investigate the relative bioavailability of the besylate tablet compared to the amorphous free-base tablet at the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended phase 2 dosing (RP2D), the effect of high-fat high-calorie meal on the bioavailability of the besylate tablet at the MTD or RP2D and the dose proportionality of two doses of GSK525762 administered as besylate tablet.

  • Endoscopic Surgery Followed by Cisplatin and Proton Beam Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients with Nasal Tumors That Cannot be Removed by Surgery

    This phase II trial studies how well endoscopic surgery followed by cisplatin and proton beam radiation therapy works in treating patients with nasal tumors that cannot be removed by surgery. Endoscopic surgery is a type of operation that uses small tubes containing a camera and small tools so that a large incision does not need to be made. Proton beam radiation therapy uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, 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. Endoscopic surgery followed by cisplatin and proton beam radiation therapy may work better in treating patients with nasal tumors.
