Study of Families With Melanoma

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine what lifestyle factors and which genes govern relapse from melanoma. Secondary - Compare sun exposure and genes that cause melanoma in patients with melanoma vs healthy participants. - Assess how unusual moles relate to sun exposure and genes that cause melanoma. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, ...

Phase N/A

Identifying Gene Mutations in Patients With Melanoma and in Families With a History of Hereditary Melanoma

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the incidence and etiologic significance of variants of known melanoma susceptibility genes (MSGs) in families with multiple cases of melanoma. - Determine the proportion of multiple-case families that are explained by high-penetrance mutations in known MSGs. - Determine the proportion of multiple-case families that are explained by ...

Phase N/A

Sorafenib Tamoxifen and Cisplatin in Treating Patients With High-Risk Stage III Melanoma

OBJECTIVES: - Compare relapse-free and overall survival of patients with high-risk stage III melanoma receiving adjuvant sorafenib tosylate, tamoxifen citrate, and cisplatin vs historical data from patients treated with tamoxifen citrate and cisplatin. - Compare the toxicity of these regimens in these patients. OUTLINE: This is a pilot study. Patients ...

Phase

Sorafenib Bevacizumab and Oxaliplatin in Treating Patients With Metastatic Malignant Melanoma

OBJECTIVES: - To determine the maximum tolerated dose of sorafenib tosylate when administered with bevacizumab and oxaliplatin. - To determine the effect of this treatment regimen on the complete and partial response rate in patients with metastatic melanoma. - To determine the effect of this treatment regimen on the progression-free ...

Phase

A Study Comparing the Effects on Melanoma With High Dose IFN Alone vs Cisplatin Velban DTIC IL2 IFN and G CSF

To compare the overall survival and disease-free survival between patients with high risk melanoma who recieve high dose interferon Alphe 2b versus Cisplatin, Vinblastine, DTIC plus IL-2 and Interferon. To evaluate the toxicities of these two regimens in the patient population. To investigate the predictive value for disease (OS and ...

Phase

Ipilimumab in Young Patients With Advanced or Refractory Solid Tumors

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To determine the tolerance and toxicity profile of ipilimumab at a range of doses up to, but not exceeding, the highest dose tolerated in patients 21 years of age or younger with advanced or refractory solid tumors. - To assess the pharmacokinetics of ipilimumab in patients with ...

Phase

Anonymous Testing of Pathology Specimens for BRCA Mutations in Ashkenazi Jewish Individuals Who Have Cancer

Germline mutations in the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 have been demonstrated in the majority of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer families. The increased risk to develop both breast and ovarian cancer associated with inheriting a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation has been well established. It has also been suggested that is ...

Phase N/A

In Vivo Confocal Microscopy of Cutaneous Neoplasms and Normal Skin

This study investigates new non-invasive imaging techniques for the evaluation of skin lesions, as well as normal skin. Our primary goal is to collect and study these images of different skin lesions along with matching biopsy specimens. The long-term goal is to develop a technique that will improve the early ...

Phase N/A

Confocal Reflectance Microscopy of Shave-Biopsy Sites on Skin in Vivo.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new instrument that shines light and takes digital pictures of skin. The goal is to develop a technique that may enable fast and accurate detection of skin disorders and cancers for future clinical diagnosis and surgical use.

Phase N/A

Phase II Study With Immunotherapy With Dendritic Cells and Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes in Solid Tumors

Background: cellular immunotherapy with dendritic cells (DC) loaded with tumor antigens has shown clinical activity, although in a small number of patients. Therefore, is is mandatory to improve the results of this strategy and to closely monitor immunologic response and cell migration in order to improve our understanding of mechanisms ...
