DSC-MRI in Measuring Relative Cerebral Blood Volume for Early Response to Bevacizumab in Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine whether binary changes (increase versus [vs.] decrease) in rCBV within enhancing tumor from baseline to 2 weeks after initiation of anti-angiogenic therapy is associated with overall survival (OS). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine whether the baseline pre-treatment rCBV measure alone is associated with OS. II....

A Study to Compare the Administration of Pembrolizumab After Surgery Versus Administration Both Before and After Surgery for High-Risk Melanoma

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: I. To compare event-free survival (EFS) in patients with high-risk resectable melanoma randomized to neoadjuvant MK-3475 (pembrolizumab) with patients randomized to adjuvant MK-3475 (pembrolizumab). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the frequency and severity of toxicities on each of the arms. II. To compare between arms overall survival (OS),...

Standard Systemic Therapy With or Without Definitive Treatment in Treating Participants With Metastatic Prostate Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To compare overall survival in metastatic prostate cancer patients who are randomized to standard systemic therapy (SST) plus definitive treatment of the primary tumor versus standard systemic therapy alone. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To compare overall survival in metastatic prostate cancer patients who received SST plus surgical excision...
