    The purpose of this study is to see if ONC201 is effective in treating participants with glioma when given following radiation therapy, how safe and tolerable ONC201 as compared to using placebo (a capsule that looks like ONC201 but does not contain any active drug), and to see how well ONC201 can improve quality of life and brain functioning in patients with glioma. ONC201 is a new drug that is being developed for treating people with glioma. ONC201 may help to remove tumor cells without affecting normal cells of the body. ONC201 is a first-in-class drug, which means it is a new drug having...

    In this research study, we are looking to see how safe and effective the combination of pembrolizumab, ibrutinib and rituximab is in your type of cancer. The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved pembrolizumab, ibrutinib or rituximab for your specific disease but these have been approved for other uses including other types of non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

    Genes and Environment in MS (GEMS) is a longitudinal cohort study investigating how genetics and environment can lead to the onset of Multiple Sclerosis. We are recruiting first-degree relatives (siblings, parents, and children) of people who have been diagnosed with MS. This study involves the collection of biological specimen, including saliva and blood, as well as the completion of questionnaires regarding personal and family health history, diet, and other environmental exposures. The goal of this study is to use these data to develop and test an algorithm predicting risk of MS onset that...

    The purpose of this study is to learn about the safety (the impact of the study drug on your body) and the effects of study drug PF-07799544 for specific types of cancer on the body and to find the best dose for treating certain cancers. For BRAF (B-raf proto-oncogene serine/threonine kinase) mutated solid tumors, PF-07799544 may be combined with encorafenib, also known as BRAFTOVI (an FDA-approved cancer medication). The study drug PF-07799544 is an investigational drug because it is not FDA-approved for use in this country. The study drug encorafenib is approved in this country and is...

    Phase 2, Treatment A: This study is being done to see if your recurrent brain tumor may respond to a combination of radiosurgery (a type of radiation therapy) with nivolumab (a type of immunotherapy drug). A small number of patients have already received this combination previously and have tolerated the treatment relatively well. However, we would like to see if the combination treatment may be better or worse than the standard approach of radiosurgery alone. We would also want to learn more about the side effects associated with giving nivolumab with radiosurgery. Phase 2, Treatment B: This...

    The purpose of this study is to find out if REC-2282, an investigational new drug, is an effective and safe treatment in patients with progressive NF2 mutated meningiomas who have either NF2 disease-related meningioma or recurrent sporadic meningiomas that have NF2 mutation. Investigational new drug means a drug that has not been approved as a marketed product (i.e., available to be prescribed or sold) by any regulatory authorities, such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). REC-2282 is a potential treatment for a variety of tumors where various enzymes and proteins play a large role...
