Malignant Pediatric Pelvic Tumors: A Retrospective Study

Background: The newborn and infant pelvis is not fully developed and the bladder, uterus, and ovaries are to a large degree intra-abdominal. The pelvis of the infant and child has different anatomic relationships than the adolescent or adult pelvis. Neoplasms of the pediatric pelvis constitute a unique group requiring highly ...

Combined Modality Therapy in Hepatoblastoma: South Egypt Cancer Institute Experience

Background: Hepatoblastoma (HB) is the most common malignant liver tumor in children, with an incidence of 0.7 to 1 per million children <15 years of age. Till 1970s, surgery was the primary modality of treatment of HB. Unfortunately, up to 60% of the patients present in an unresectable stage. Later, ...

Phase N/A

HIFU Hyperthermia With Liposomal Doxorubicin (DOXIL) for Relapsed or Refractory Pediatric and Young Adult Solid Tumors

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Doxil (liposomal doxorubicin) given prior to MR-HIFU Hyperthermia is safe for the treatment of pediatric and young adult patients with recurrent and refractory solid tumors.

Phase

Comparison of PET and Proton MRS Imaging to Evaluate Pediatric Brain Tumor Activity

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 ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Analysis in Identifying Late-Occurring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To identify key adverse events developing in patients (cases) with a primary cancer diagnosed at age 21 or younger. II. To characterize the key adverse events with respect to the nature of the primary malignancy (pathology, stage) and coded details of the therapeutic protocol. III. To identify ...

Carboplatin Melphalan Etoposide Phosphate Mannitol and Sodium Thiosulfate in Treating Patients With Previously Treated Brain Tumors

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate toxicity and estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of melphalan (intra-arterially [i.a.]) administered in conjunction with carboplatin (i.a.) and etoposide phosphate (intravenously [i.v.]) undergoing BBBD, in subjects with anaplastic oligodendroglioma or oligoastrocytoma. (Phase I) II. To examine the efficacy (one year progression free survival [1YPFS]) ...

Tacrolimus and MMF as Post Grafting Immunosuppression After Conditioning With Flu TBI for HLA Matched Family Donor

Conditioning regimen: 1. Days - 4 to -2: Fludarabine 30 mg/m2/day IV. 2. Day 0: TBI 2.0 Gy at 6-7 cGy/min from a linear accelerator, followed by stem-cell infusion. TBI will preferably be administered between 7:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to avoid proximity to tacrolimus/MMF administration. Immunosuppression: Day -3: Start ...

Phase

Myeloablative Umbilical Cord Blood Transplantation in Hematological Diseases

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the 1-year survival of patients undergoing unrelated umbilical cord blood transplantation (UCBT) for hematologic malignancies treated with myeloablative preparative regimen comprising fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and fractionated total-body irradiation. Secondary - Determine the incidence of transplant-related mortality at 6 months after UCBT. - Evaluate the pattern of chimerism ...

Phase

Treatment of Hematologic Malignancies With Single-Unit or Double-Unit Cord Blood Transplantation

This is a non-randomized, phase II protocol to evaluate engraftment of cord blood after treatment with myeloablative conditioning of fludarabine, total body irradiation and cyclophosphamide. All patients will receive tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil as prophylaxis for graft-vs-host disease. Conditioning Regimen: - Days -10 to -7: Fludarabine 30mg/m2/day IV - Days ...

Phase

T Cell Depletion for Recipients of HLA Haploidentical Related Donor Stem Cell Grafts

To participate in this study, the subject will need to have a central line (a thin plastic catheter or tube that is placed during surgery into one of the large veins in the neck or chest). Also before treatment can begin, we will test the subject's blood for viruses which ...
