The Cancer of the Pancreas Screening-5 CAPS5)Study

The Sub Investigator at each site will be responsible for internal monitoring at their site. The site sub Investigator and study team will report any serious adverse events to Principal Investigator and annually report adverse events.

Phase N/A

Defining the Genetic Basis for the Development of Primary Pigmented Nodular Adrenocortical Disease (PPNAD) and the Carney Complex

Primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (PPNAD) is a pituitary-independent, primary adrenal form of hypercortisolism characterized by (a) resistance to suppression by dexamethasone and abolition of the normal diurnal rhythm of cortisol secretion, and (b) distinctive, bilateral, histopathologic changes of the adrenal glands, such as the formation of variably sized, pigmented ...

Phase N/A

Study of Skin Tumors in 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 ...

Phase N/A

Collection of Serum and Tissue Samples From Patients With Biopsy-Proved or Suspected Malignant Disease

Background Kidney, prostate, bladder, testis and penile cancer account for 22% of cancers diagnosed in the United States and are responsible for 10% of cancer deaths each year in the U.S. Understanding the genes and gene pathways that cause genitourinary malignancies will provide the foundation for the development of targeted ...

Phase N/A

Cancer in Inherited Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes

Background A prospective cohort of Inherited Bone Marrow Failure Syndrome (IBMFS) will provide new information regarding cancer rates and types in these disorders. Mutations in IBMFS genes are relevant to carcinogenesis in sporadic cancers. Patients with IBMFS who develop cancer differ in their genetic and/or environmental features from patients with ...

Phase N/A

Erlotinib Hydrochloride in Reducing Duodenal Polyp Burden in Patients With Familial Adenomatous Polyposis at Risk of Developing Colon Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the mean percent change in duodenal polyp burden (sum of diameters from all polyps) from baseline to 6 months post-intervention for familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) subjects receiving weekly erlotinib hydrochloride (erlotinib). II. To assess the grade 2/3 adverse event rate in this population and compare ...

Phase

Molecular Basis for Variations in Hereditary Colorectal Cancer Syndromes

Participants Questionnaires If participant agrees to take part in this study, participant will fill out a some questionnaires about participant's work, family history, medical history, and health habits. If participant has already answered these questionnaires when participant was registered as a patient at MD Anderson, the study staff will give ...

Phase N/A

Developing the Family Map: Looking at Communal Coping

Facilitating the dissemination of disease risk information and promoting engagement in healthful behaviors within families may be enhanced by using network-based interventions. Network-based interventions are innovative in that they are tailored to the structure of the social system within which individuals are embedded. Understanding the social and relational factors associated ...

Phase N/A

Validating Pain Scales in Children and Young Adults

BACKGROUND Pain is a common symptom among children with a variety of medical illnesses. Currently, a number of rating scales are used to assess pain interference and pain severity in adults. However, relatively few measures assessing these variables have been validated for use with children and adolescents, and existing tools ...

Phase N/A

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Atezolizumab in Treating Patients With Stage III Colon Cancer and Deficient DNA Mismatch Repair

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine whether atezolizumab combined with oxaliplatin, leucovorin calcium, and fluorouracil (FOLFOX) and its continuation as monotherapy can significantly improve disease-free survival (DFS) compared to FOLFOX alone in patients with stage III colon cancers and deficient DNA mismatch repair (dMMR). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine whether atezolizumab ...
