Radiation Therapy With or Without Olaparib in Treating Patients With Inflammatory Breast Cancer

This phase II trial studies how well radiation therapy with or without olaparib works in treating patients with inflammatory breast cancer. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy with or without olaparib may work better in treating patients with inflammatory breast cancer.

BrainUp: A Phase 1 Study of Safety and Tolerability of Acetazolamide With Temozolomide in Adults With Newly Diagnosed MGMT Promoter-Methylated Malignant Glioma

This is a Phase I study that examines the rate of dose limiting side effects in patients with malignant astrocytoma treated with combination acetazolamide (ACZ) and temazolomide (TMZ). Eligible patients must have histologically proven newly diagnosed, O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) methylated WHO grade III or IV astrocytoma and be planning to undergo treatment with standard adjuvant TMZ (after completing treatment with TMZ and ionizing radiation (IR)).

During this study, patients will receive daily oral ACZ with TMZ. During each cycle, ACZ will be started on the day of TMZ initiation and continued for a total of 21 days.
