Meningioma clinical trials at UC Health
3 in progress, 1 open to new patients

  • Observation or Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Grade II Meningioma That Has Been Completely Removed by Surgery

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well radiation therapy works compared with observation in treating patients with newly diagnosed grade II meningioma that has been completely removed by surgery. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors.

  • Observation or Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Grade I, Grade II, or Grade III Meningioma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    RATIONALE: Sometimes a tumor may not need treatment until it progresses. In this case, observation may be sufficient. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor, such as 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy and intensity-modulated radiation therapy, may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. It is not yet known whether observation is more effective than radiation therapy in treating patients with meningioma.

    PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying observation to see how well it works compared with radiation therapy in treating patients with grade I, grade II, or grade III meningioma.

  • Vismodegib and FAK Inhibitor GSK2256098 in Treating Patients With Progressive Meningiomas

    Sorry, currently not accepting new patients, but might later

    This phase II trial studies how well vismodegib and focal adhesion kinase (FAK) inhibitor GSK2256098 work in treating patients with meningioma that is growing, spreading, or getting worse. Vismodegib and FAK inhibitor GSK2256098 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
