Treatment Clinical Trials for Childhood Medulloblastoma

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for childhood medulloblastoma 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.

Trials 1-10 of 10
  • Erdafitinib in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, or Histiocytic Disorders with FGFR Mutations (A Pediatric MATCH Treatment Trial)

    This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well erdafitinib works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment with FGFR mutations. Erdafitinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Larotrectinib in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, or Histiocytic Disorders with NTRK Fusions (A Pediatric MATCH Treatment Trial)

    This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well larotrectinib works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with NTRK fusions that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment. Larotrectinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Phase II Pediatric Study With Dabrafenib in Combination With Trametinib in Patients With HGG and LGG

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the activity of dabrafenib in combination with trametinib in children and adolescent patients with BRAF V600 mutation positive low grade glioma or relapsed or refractory high grade glioma.
    Location: 10 locations

  • Study of Nifurtimox to Treat Refractory or Relapsed Neuroblastoma or Medulloblastoma

    The purpose of this study is to determine whether nifurtimox in combination with cyclophosphamide and topotecan are effective in the treatment of relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma and medulloblastoma.

  • Trial of Afatinib in Pediatric Tumours

    Open-label, dose escalation, monotherapy, basket trial with biomarker specific MTD expansion cohort / Phase II part. The trial will consist of 2 parts: 1. Dose finding part to determine the MTD 2. Biomarker specific MTD expansion cohort / Phase II part to assess clinical anti-tumour activity in included tumour types

  • Study of the IDO Pathway Inhibitor, Indoximod, and Temozolomide for Pediatric Patients With Progressive Primary Malignant Brain Tumors

    This is a first-in-children phase 1 trial using indoximod, an inhibitor of the immune "checkpoint" pathway indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO), in combination with temozolomide-based therapy to treat pediatric brain tumors. Using a preclinical glioblastoma model, it was recently shown that adding IDO-blocking drugs to temozolomide plus radiation significantly enhanced survival by driving a vigorous, tumordirected inflammatory response. This data provided the rationale for the companion adult phase 1 trial using indoximod (IND#120813) plus temozolomide to treat adults with glioblastoma, which is currently open (NCT02052648). The goal of this pediatric study is to bring IDO-based immunotherapy into the clinic for children with brain tumors. This study will provide a foundation for future pediatric trials testing indoximod combined with radiation and temozolomide in the up-front setting for patients with newly diagnosed central nervous system tumors.

  • Cyclophosphamide or Thalidomide after Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Younger Patients with Solid Tumors

    This early phase I pilot clinical trial studies cyclophosphamide or thalidomide following high dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplant in treating younger patients with solid tumors. Drugs such as cyclophosphamide and thalidomide suppress the growth of new blood vessels to tumors. Blocking blood flow to tumors after receiving high dose chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant may prevent the tumors from coming back or continuing to grow.

  • Mebendazole in Treating Patients with Recurrent or Progressive Pediatric Brain Tumors

    This phase I clinical trial studies the side effects and best dose of mebendazole in treating patients with pediatric brain tumors that have come back or have not responded to treatment. Mebendazole is used to treat parasitic infections and may slow the growth of tumor cells by interfering with cell structure and preventing new tumor blood vessels from forming.

  • Expanded Natural Killer Cell Infusion in Treating Younger Patients with Recurrent / Refractory Brain Tumors

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of expanded natural killer cells in treating younger patients with brain tumors that have come back or do not respond to treatment. Infusing a particular type of a patient's own white blood cells called natural killer cells that have been through a procedure to expand (increase) their numbers may work in treating patients with recurrent / refractory brain tumors.

  • Melphalan, Carboplatin, Mannitol, and Sodium Thiosulfate in Treating Patients with Recurrent or Progressive CNS Embryonal or Germ Cell Tumors

    This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of melphalan when given together with carboplatin, mannitol, and sodium thiosulfate, and to see how well they work in treating patients with recurrent or progressive central nervous system (CNS) embryonal or germ cell tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as melphalan and carboplatin, 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. Osmotic blood-brain barrier disruption (BBBD) uses mannitol to open the blood vessels around the brain and allow cancer-killing substances to be carried directly to the brain. Sodium thiosulfate may help lessen or prevent hearing loss and toxicities in patients undergoing chemotherapy with carboplatin and BBBD. Giving melphalan together with carboplatin, mannitol, and sodium thiosulfate may be an effective treatment for recurrent or progressive CNS embryonal or germ cell tumors.
