A clinical trial seeking patients for a research study for the treatment of Craniopharyngioma, Cushing's Syndrome, Pituitary Adenoma, Atresia, Endocrine disorder, CONGENITAL ANOMALY NOS

There are a variety of tumors affecting the pituitary gland; The gene(s) involved in the pathogenesis of these tumors are largely not known; their possible association with other developmental defects or inheritance pattern(s) has not been investigated. The present study serves as a (i) screening/training, and, (ii) a research protocol. ...

Phase N/A

A clinical research study for the treatment of Hereditary Neoplastic Syndrome, Tuberous Sclerosis

Patients with tuberous sclerosis develop benign cutaneous tumors that are typically multiple in number and location. These tumors include facial angiofibromas, forehead plaques, shagreen patches, periungual fibromas, and gingival fibromas. The tumors are permanent, slow growing, and often disfiguring. The purpose of this study is to elucidate the molecular basis ...

Study of Individuals and Families at High Risk for Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - Identify individuals at high risk of cancer, especially due to personal or family medical history. - Evaluate and define clinical spectrum of disease in syndromes predisposing to cancer. - Quantify risks of tumors in family members. - Map, clone, and determine function of tumor susceptibility genes. - Identify ...

Phase N/A

Screening Individuals and Families at High Risk for Hematologic Cancers

OBJECTIVES: - Ascertain individuals at high risk for hematologic malignancy because of personal or family medical history. - Evaluate and define the clinical spectrum and natural history of disease in syndromes predisposing these individuals and families to hematologic cancer. - Evaluate the potential precursor states of malignancy in families at ...

Presurgical Language Mapping With fMRI: Comparison of BOLD and fASL Techniques

One of the aim of the neurosurgical treatment of brain tumor is to offer the maximal resection with the minimal neurological risk. The presurgical mapping of eloquent areas with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is helpful to plan the surgery. BOLD fMRI is now the gold standard to map language ...

Phase N/A

Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study to evaluate Malignant neoplasm of brain

Background Children with brain tumors are generally followed for response or progression by imaging studies, such as CT or MRI. While these imaging studies help delineate the anatomical location and extent of a tumor within the CNS, they give no information regarding the biologic or metabolic activity of the lesion. ...

Collection of Blood and Urine Samples in Patients Receiving Radiation Therapy for Glioblastoma Multiforme

BACKGROUND Preliminary data generated from our pilot protocol 02-C-0064 suggests that the urinary VEGF and MMP level at the one month follow-up time point compared to the last on-treatment time point collection may be predictive of tumor recurrence at one year (l). Note that this preliminary study included patients with ...
