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

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 ...

Phase

Fludarabine Phosphate Cyclophosphamide Total Body Irradiation and Donor Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Blood Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the rate of relapse, defined as recurrence of underlying disease or progression of underlying disease, at 1 year in patients who receive haploidentical peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) after reduced intensity conditioning and post-transplant cyclophosphamide. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate safety including development of acute ...

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

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

Integrated Cancer Repository for Cancer Research

The integrated Cancer Repository for Cancer Research (iCaRe2 http://icare2project.org) is a unique sociotechnical resource for the collection and management of cancer and health-related data at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center at University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC). The iCaRe2 is a multi-center, semantically-interoperable and easily-customizable cancer data resource ...

Phase N/A

Familial Investigations of Childhood Cancer Predisposition

During the study, blood samples or other healthy tissue will be obtained from participants, as well as medical and family histories. When possible, leftover tumor samples will also be collected. If participants agree to be re-contacted in the future, they will be asked about once each year to update their ...
