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

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Predicting Risk of Cancer in Barrett's Esophagus

Patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) have an increased risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma which is 40-125 fold higher than in the general population. However, the current techniques of detecting dysplasia and observing abnormal p53 immunohistochemical staining are not accurate or reliable methods for determining which BE patients will progress to cancer. ...

Phase N/A

Treatment Outcome and Quality of Life in Patients With Pediatric Extra-Cranial Germ Cell Tumors Previously Treated on Clinical Trial CCLG-GC-1979-01 or CCLG-GC-1989-01

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the late effects of treatment and the quality-of-life of patients with germ cell tumors (GCT) previously treated on clinical trial CCLG-GC-1979-01 or CCLG-GC-1989-01. - Evaluate the late effects of carboplatin, etoposide, and bleomycin in patients treated on clinical trial CCLG-GC-1989-01. - Determine the toxicity of bleomycin and ...

Phase N/A

Stem Cell Transplant for Hematological Malignancy

Preparative regimen using total body irradiation (TBI) and cyclophosphamide: 1. on day -6 and -5: cyclophosphamide is given, 2. on day -4, -3, -2, and -1: TBI is given, 3. on day 0: stem cell or bone marrow is infused. Alternate preparative therapy for patients not able to receive TBI ...

Phase N/A

Immunoablative Mini Transplant (Hematopoietic Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplant [HPBSC])

The standard treatment in many disorders of the bone marrow is high dose chemotherapy and whole-body radiation treatment followed by the stem cell transplant. This type of transplant not only suppresses or kills off the immune system, but is very toxic to the bone marrow. This study uses a chemotherapy ...
