Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Temozolomide. 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.

  • Cisplatin, Carboplatin and Etoposide or Temozolomide and Capecitabine in Treating Patients with Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Gastrointestinal Tract or Pancreas That Is Metastatic or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well temozolomide and capecitabine work compared to standard treatment with cisplatin or carboplatin and etoposide in treating patients with neuroendocrine carcinoma of the gastrointestinal tract or pancreas that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic) or cannot be removed by surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, capecitabine, cisplatin, carboplatin and etoposide, 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. Certain types of neuroendocrine carcinomas may respond better to treatments other than the current standard treatment of cisplatin and etoposide. It is not yet known whether temozolomide and capecitabine may work better than cisplatin or carboplatin and etoposide in treating patients with this type of neuroendocrine carcinoma, called non-small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma.

  • Temozolomide with or without Veliparib in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma Multiforme

    This randomized phase II / III trial studies how well temozolomide and veliparib work compared to temozolomide alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, 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. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether temozolomide is more effective with or without veliparib in treating glioblastoma multiforme.

  • Radiation Therapy or Radiation Therapy and Temozolomide in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Anaplastic Glioma or Low Grade Glioma

    This randomized phase III trial compares giving radiation therapy alone or temozolomide together with radiation therapy and to see which works best in treating patients with newly diagnosed anaplastic glioma or low grade glioma. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, 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. It is not yet known whether giving radiation therapy alone or temozolomide together with radiation therapy is better in treating anaplastic glioma or low grade glioma.

  • Dose-Escalated Photon IMRT or Proton Beam Radiation Therapy versus Standard-Dose Radiation Therapy and Temozolomide in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well dose-escalated photon intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or proton beam radiation therapy works compared with standard-dose radiation therapy when given with temozolomide in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays and other types of radiation to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Drugs, such as temozolomide, may make tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is not yet known whether dose-escalated photon IMRT or proton beam radiation therapy is more effective than standard-dose radiation therapy with temozolomide in treating glioblastoma.

Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving talazoparib together with temozolomide may work better in treating younger patients with refractory or recurrent malignancies.

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of metformin hydrochloride when given together with vincristine sulfate, irinotecan hydrochloride, and temozolomide in treating younger patients with solid tumors that have returned after a period of improvement (relapsed) or have not responded to previous treatment (refractory). Metformin hydrochloride may slow the growth of tumor cells and may be an effective treatment for solid tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vincristine sulfate, irinotecan hydrochloride, and temozolomide, 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.

  • Molecular Profiling-Based Targeted Therapy in Treating Patients with Advanced Solid Tumors

    This randomized pilot phase II trial studies molecular profiling-based targeted therapy in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment. WEE1 inhibitor AZD1775, everolimus, and trametinib are drugs that each target a specific variation in tumors by blocking different proteins needed for cell growth. Veliparib blocks an enzyme that helps repair deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) damaged by chemotherapy, which may help chemotherapy drugs work better. It is not yet known whether testing patients for variations in their tumor and assigning treatment targeting the variation is more effective than standard non-targeted therapy in treating advanced solid tumors.

Drugs such as abemaciclib, DNA-PK / TOR Kinase Inhibitor CC-115, or neratinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Screening tumor samples for biomarkers may help doctors to determine if certain treatments work better on patients with certain biomarkers. Giving abemaciclib, DNA-PK / TOR kinase inhibitor CC-115, or neratinib may work better in treating patients with brain tumors.

  • Spectroscopic MRI-guided Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients with Newly-diagnosed Glioblastoma or Gliosarcoma

    This pilot clinical trial studies the side effects of spectroscopic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided radiation therapy and how well it works in treating patients with newly-diagnosed glioblastoma or gliosarcoma. Spectroscopic MRI can show doctors where the extent of tumor is in the brain beyond current clinical MRI scans by mapping areas of high tumor metabolism. Radiation therapy uses high energy beams to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Spectroscopic MRI-guided radiation therapy may work better in treating patients with glioblastoma or gliosarcoma.

  • Carbon C 11 Temozolomide, PET, and MRI in Studying Tumor Blood Vessels in Patients with Recurrent Glioblastoma Receiving Bevacizumab and Temozolomide

    This pilot clinical trial studies carbon C 11 temozolomide, positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in studying tumor blood vessels in patients with brain tumors that have come back and are receiving bevacizumab and temozolomide. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, 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. Bevacizumab works by blocking signals of a specific protein called vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therefore slowing the growth of cancer. Since anti-VEGF agents also affect normal blood vessels in the brain, they may inhibit the way temozolomide is delivered to the tumor. Using a radioactive substance, such as carbon C 11 temozolomide, PET, and MRI may allow doctors to evaluate the changes in tumor blood flow, blood volume, and how receptive blood vessels are while also measuring how much temozolomide is in the brain.
