Phase I-II Trial of Sorafenib in Combination With Ifosfamide in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are an uncommon group of malignant tumors of mesenchymal origin. For most advanced STS types, chemotherapy is currently the only available treatment. Unfortunately, a very limited number of useful drugs are active against this disease. Doxorubicin is widely considered the standard first-line treatment. Ifosfamide has also ...

Studying Patients With a Personal or Family History of Cancer Caused by a Virus

OBJECTIVES: - Conduct clinical, laboratory, and epidemiologic studies of patients with a personal or family history of viral-associated cancer. OUTLINE: Patients undergo an interview, physical examination, and blood sample collection. Other clinically indicated biological samples, such as urine, sputum, saliva, tears, or semen or cervical, anal, oral, or nasal swabs, ...

Phase N/A

Ipilimumab in Young Patients With Advanced or Refractory Solid Tumors

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To determine the tolerance and toxicity profile of ipilimumab at a range of doses up to, but not exceeding, the highest dose tolerated in patients 21 years of age or younger with advanced or refractory solid tumors. - To assess the pharmacokinetics of ipilimumab in patients with ...

Elucidating the Genetic Basis of the Pleuropulmonary Blastoma (PPB) Familial Cancer Syndrome

Studies of inherited cancer syndromes have provided unique opportunities to uncover and explain important cellular pathways with broad relevance to both sporadic cancers and human development. This proposal studies the cancer predisposition syndrome originally described as a familial form of pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB). PPB is a rare, aggressive lung cancer ...

Phase N/A

Novel Biochemical and Molecular Determinants for Soft Tissue Sarcoma

In this protocol, we plan to identify specific markers from biochemical, proteomic, epigenetic and molecular genetic analyses that predict clinical outcome, responsiveness to therapy and might serve as promising therapeutic targets in patients with soft tissue sarcoma.

Phase N/A

Study of DNA Mutations in Predicting the Effect of External-Beam Radiation Therapy in Patients With Early Breast Cancer Localized Prostate Cancer or Gynecological Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To test the hypothesis that an association between common genetic variations, reported by single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in relevant candidate genes, is associated with individual patient variability in normal tissue radiation response and toxicity. Secondary - To compare different clinical scoring systems for late normal tissue effects, ...

Phase N/A

Screening of Bone Mineral Density in Women Who Have Received Chemotherapy

It is generally accepted that women who develop breast cancer have an increased bone mineral density (BMD) probably due to endogenous estrogen production. After menopause, BMD decreases rather rapidly particularly during the first years after natural menopause. Bone loss typically is more rapid and severe in a premature induced menopause ...

Phase N/A

T Lymphocytes in Treating Patients Undergoing a Donor Bone Marrow Transplant

OBJECTIVES: - To generate Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-specific cytotoxic T-cell lines from bone marrow transplantation (BMT) donors. - To determine the safety of one intravenous injection of BMT donor-derived EBV-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) in BMT recipients at high risk. - To compare the antiviral and immunological efficacy of a single ...

Phase

Correlative Biomarker Study in Patients With Myeloproliferative Disorders

Researchers will use abnormal blood and/or bone marrow cells, or materials derived from these abnormal cells, like DNA, RNA, protein or plasma, in laboratory studies. Toenail clippings will provide normal material like DNA for comparison with the abnormal material derived from the blood and/or bone marrow. The results of these ...

Phase N/A

Magnetic Acupressure in Reducing Pain in Cancer Patients Undergoing Bone Marrow Aspiration and Biopsy

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To compare pain rating in cancer patients undergoing bone marrow aspiration and biopsy (BMAB) treated with magnetic acupressure at bilateral large intestine 4 (LI 4) points vs sham acupressure at bilateral proximal fourth interosseus space of the hand. Secondary - To compare the duration of BMAB, patient's ...
