He was the Institutional site Principal Investigator for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC) for over 10 years ending that role in 2012 Shortly thereafter he formed the Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium (PNOC) a multi-institutional consortium of now 15 major academic centers across the United States conducing early phase precision-focused clinical trials in young

Primary testicular lymphoma (PTL) is an uncommon and aggressive form of extranodal non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) accounting for 5% of testicular malignancies and 1% to 2% of NHL cases 1 With a median age at diagnosis of 66 to 68 years 2-5 PTL is both the most common testicular malignancy in men age 60 years and the most common bilateral testicular neoplasm 6 Population-based studies

Malignant Glioma (PBTC 006) Phase I Study of SU5416 in Pediatric Patients with Recurrent or Progressive Poor Prognosis Brain Tumors (PBTC 002) Phase I Study of Intrathecal Spartaject Busulfan in Children with Neoplastic Meningitis (PBTC 004) The following clinical trials for children with brain tumor are being performed in the UCSF Department of

In the PBTC-012 trial for children with refractory brain tumors (age 21 years) a patient with recurrent GBM receiving cilengitide had CR sustained for 1 year Another patient with GBM had stable disease for 6 9 weeks There were no DLTs and the phase II dose

METHODS: Two Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC) therapeutic trials in children with newly diagnosed BSG were designed to test radiation therapy combined with molecularly targeted agents (PBTC-007: phase I/II study of gefitinib PBTC-014: phase I/II study of tipifarnib)

He has been a study biostatistician for numerous Phase-I and Phase-II clinical trials conducted by St Jude Children's Research Hospital from 2002-2011 and by Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC) from 2002-present and for clinical and observational studies conducted by University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) since 2011

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC) was formed by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in 1999 to improve the treatment of primary brain tumors in children The participating academic centers and children's hospitals are responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of a large percentage of children with primary brain tumors in the United States

Across clinical trials the following Grade 3 and 4 (NCI-CTCAE v 3) laboratory abnormalities occurred in patients treated with Avastin with at least a 2% difference compared to the corresponding control groups: hyperglycaemia decreased haemoglobin hypokalaemia hyponatraemia decreased white blood cell count increased international normalised ratio (INR)

Both trials showed tolerable toxicities and the same recommended phase 2 dose These promising findings led to the development of this PBTC prospective phase 2 trial evaluating the activity of selumetinib at the recommended phase 2 dose in patients with recurrent refractory or progressive paediatric low-grade glioma (WHO grade I and II)

Together this makes us one of only five centers in the U S with access (via COG Phase I PBTC and DoD NF Network) to offer all early Phase I and II NIH-sponsored clinical trials for children with brain tumors We now have 2 030 children in an early phase clinical trial on any given day "

The trial is also significant for its focus on a group usually overlooked by cancer research—adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients In this case the patients are aged 13 to 25 Ranjit S Bindra MD PhD Associate Professor of Therapeutic Radiology and Asher Marks MD Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Director of Pediatric Neuro-Oncology merged their strengths to create the

Clinical Trial PBTC-050 Ribociclib and Everolimus in Treating Children With Recurrent or Refractory Malignant Brain Tumors The main purpose of this study is to determine the best dose and side effects of a combination of drugs and to see how well the work in treating children and young adults

is the PBTC's work on selumetinib for the treatment of low-grade glioma As a result of the PBTC phase 1-2 trial of selumetinib COG is now conducting phase 3 trials to determine if selumetinib can be a new standard-of-care for children with some types of low-grade glioma Other potential areas of translation
