Phase N/A

An Investigation of Pituitary Tumors and Related Hypothalmic Disorders

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

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

Natural History of Patients With Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors

Background: This protocol is designed to evaluate patients with tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) who appear to be probable candidates for future protocol entry or have disease manifestations that are of unique scientific interest, importance, and/or educational value. Objective: To evaluate patients with tumors of the central nervous ...

Phase N/A

Rare Disease Patient Registry & Natural History Study - Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford

CoRDS collects contact, sociodemographic and health information about participants. This information is entered into CoRDS and linked to a unique coded identifier. Below are some examples of information requested on the Questionnaire that will be entered into CoRDS: Contact information: Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Email Address Sociodemographic information: Date ...

Phase N/A

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

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 the lesion. ...

Phase N/A

Proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging Compared With Fludeoxyglucose F 18 Positron Emission Tomography Scanning in Determining Biologic or Metabolic Tumor Activity in Young Patients With Brain Tumors

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (^1H-MRSI) vs fludeoxyglucose F 18 positron emission tomography (FDG PET) scanning in determining biologic or metabolic activity in pediatric patients with brain tumors. Secondary - Correlate results of these imaging techniques with standard MRI readings and outcome in these patients. ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

The Role of the Vagus Nerve in Tumor-to-Brain Communication in Lung Cancer Patients

the aim of this study is to measure brain metabolism in patients with lung cancer.FDG uptake in the brain in patients with malignant tumors will be compared to the amount of tracer activity found in patients who have benign pulmonary process. if differences between the brain uptake of FDG in ...
