Clinical Trials At Pacific Neuroscience Institute Banner

We are very excited to announce a new clinical trial for the assessment and treatment of patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma, by trial creator and principal investigator, Santosh Kesari, MD, PhD.

This brain cancer study, Precision Immunotherapy in the Neoadjuvant Setting (PIN), provides alternative immunotherapy options to the current standard of care treatment that patients receive when presenting with a new diagnosis of glioblastoma.

This new clinical trial tackles glioblastoma treatment in a whole new way. By giving immunotherapy first rather than radiation and chemotherapy, the patient’s immune system remains uncompromised which could result in better responses and lead to better patient outcomes.

1. New Studies

 

Pacific Neuroscience Institute/John Wayne Cancer Institute (PDF): A Longitudinal Assessment of Tumor Evolution in Patients with Brain Cancer (NCT03425292)

This is a randomized, longitudinal assessment of tumor evolution in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma. Study is designed to assess the safety and tolerability of administering nivolumab versus nivolumab in combination with ipilimumab prior to radiation therapy. The study will also collect biological specimens before, during, and after treatments to identify determinants of response and safety. Parallel assessment of the effect of standard radiation and temozolomide on tumor microenvironment will provide a deeper understanding of tumor stratification for precision medicine.
