Clinical Trials Using Lomustine
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Lomustine. 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.
Reduced Craniospinal Radiation Therapy and Chemotherapy in Treating Younger Patients with Newly Diagnosed WNT-Driven Medulloblastoma
This phase II trial studies how well reduced doses of radiation therapy to the brain and spine (craniospinal) and chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed type of brain tumor called WNT) / Wingless (WNT)-driven medulloblastoma. Recent studies using chemotherapy and radiation therapy have been shown to be effective in treating patients with WNT-driven medulloblastoma. However, there is a concern about the late side effects of treatment, such as learning difficulties, lower amounts of hormones, or other problems in performing daily activities. Radiotherapy uses high-energy radiation from x-rays to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, vincristine sulfate, cyclophosphamide and lomustine, 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. Giving reduced craniospinal radiation therapy and chemotherapy may kill tumor cells and may also reduce the late side effects of treatment.

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.

Study to Evaluate Eflornithine + Lomustine vs Lomustine in Recurrent Anaplastic Astrocytoma (AA) Patients
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of eflornithine in combination with lomustine, compared to lomustine taken alone, in treating patients whose anaplastic astrocytoma has recurred / progressed after radiation and temozolomide chemotherapy.

Surgery and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Younger Patients with Non-metastatic Standard-Risk Medulloblastoma
This pilot early phase I trial studies how well surgery and combination chemotherapy work in treating younger patients with a brain tumor called medulloblastoma that has not spread to another place in the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, lomustine, vincristine sulfate, and cyclophosphamide, 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. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) after surgery may kill any remaining tumor cells.

Phase 1 / 2 Study of USL311 Alone and in Combination With Lomustine in Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors and Relapsed / Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM)
This is a multicenter, open-label, Phase 1 / 2, dose-escalation and dose expansion study of a CXCR4 inhibitor, USL311, alone and in combination with lomustine in subjects with advanced solid tumors (Phase 1) and subjects with relapsed / recurrent GBM (Phase 2). The study is designed to explore the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary efficacy of USL311 alone and in combination with lomustine.

9-ING-41 in Patients With Advanced Cancers
GSK-3β is a potentially important therapeutic target in human malignancies. The Actuate 1801 Phase 1 / 2 study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 9-ING-41, a potent GSK-3β inhibitor, as a single agent and in combination with cytotoxic agents, in patients with refractory cancers.

Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy and Lomustine in Treating Patients with Recurrent Glioblastoma or Anaplastic Astrocytoma
This phase II trial studies how well laser interstitial thermal therapy and lomustine work in treating patients with glioblastoma or anaplastic astrocytoma that has come back. Using laser to heat the tumor cells may help to kill them. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as lomustine, 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. Giving laser interstitial thermal therapy and lomustine may work better in treating patients with glioblastoma or anaplastic astrocytoma.

Genomic Based Assignment of Therapy in Advanced Urothelial Carcinoma
Background: Advanced urothelial cancer has no cure. But only a few chemotherapy drugs have been tested for it. The Co-eXpression ExtrapolatioN (COXEN) model predicts if cells respond to treatment. It may also help determine which drugs fight urothelial cancer based on the characteristics of a tumor. Researchers want to test if this model can choose the best therapy for advanced urothelial cancer within 3 weeks and how tumors respond to the next best therapy. Objective: To test if the COXEN model can choose the best therapy for advanced urothelial cancer within 3 weeks. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older whose urothelial cancer has spread after at least 1 line of chemotherapy Design: Participants will be screened with medical history, physical exam, blood and urine tests, and tumor scans. Participants will provide a tumor sample from a previous surgery and a new biopsy. A needle will remove a small piece of tumor. Participants will repeat screening tests, plus have an EKG and scan. For the scan, they will get an injection of radioactive drug. They will lie in a machine that takes pictures. Participants will take the drugs assigned by the COXEN model. They will have visits every 2 3 weeks. These will include blood and urine tests. Participants will have tumor scans every 8 9 weeks. Participants may have another biopsy. Participants will take the drugs until they can t tolerate the side effects or their cancer worsens. They may be assigned to a second COXEN therapy. Participants will have a follow-up visit 4 5 weeks after their last drug dose. Participants will be contacted by phone every few months until death.
