This study is just observing patients who have short bowel syndrome for 10 years to learn more about this condition. There is no change in treatment if you participate in this study.
Currently, it is difficult to predict which pregnant women with symptoms of preterm (early) labor will actually experience preterm delivery of the baby. Length of the cervix (the opening to the uterus or womb) in pregnant women has been shown to be one of the risk factors associated with delivering a baby preterm. CerviLenz is a simple, single use device approved by the FDA to measure cervical length. The purpose of the study is to see how well the Cervilenz measurement of cervical length correlates with preterm delivery.
This study is testing a medication to learn more about the safety, potential side effects, dosing, and effectiveness when given to premature infants who are at risk for developing a condition called Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD). Additionally, this study is testing the medication to reduce the risk of developing BPD in premature infants.
While some doctors may use this medication to treat infants with BPD, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved it for this use because the ability of the medication to effectively treat BPD has not been demonstrated in this population. The medication is approved, by the FDA, for use in adults to treat a disease that causes high blood pressure in the lungs. However, whether this medication helps premature infants at risk for BPD is not known. The results of this study could help us find the safest and most helpful doses of the medication to give to premature infants to prevent BPD.
ALTE16C1: Biospecimen Analysis in Determining Effects of Chemotherapy on Fertility in Osteosarcoma Survivors
This research trial studies saliva, semen, and blood samples to determine effects of chemotherapy on fertility in osteosarcoma survivors. Study biospecimen samples from osteosarcoma survivors in the laboratory may help doctors learn whether chemotherapy causes fertility problems and to learn more about the long term effects.
This is a prospective, observational registry in patients who have been prescribed Gliadel Wafer by the physician as part of usual care. Data will be collected on the safety and effectiveness of treatment with Gliadel Wafer perioperatively and ongoing during regular office visits up to 3-years. Patients enrolled in this registry will be asked to complete a questionnaire (Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Brain [FACT-Br]) about their well-being and clinicians will complete the Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) during office visits.
This randomized phase III trial studies standard or comprehensive radiation therapy in treating patients with early-stage breast cancer who have undergone surgery. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether comprehensive radiation therapy is more effective than standard radiation therapy in treating patients with breast cancer.
This phase II trial studies how well reduced doses of radiation therapy to the brain and spine (craniospinal) and chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed type of brain tumor called WNT)/Wingless (WNT)-driven medulloblastoma. Recent studies using chemotherapy and radiation therapy have been shown to be effective in treating patients with WNT-driven medulloblastoma. However, there is a concern about the late side effects of treatment, such as learning difficulties, lower amounts of hormones, or other problems in performing daily activities. Radiotherapy uses high-energy radiation from x-rays to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, vincristine sulfate, cyclophosphamide and lomustine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving reduced craniospinal radiation therapy and chemotherapy may kill tumor cells and may also reduce the late side effects of treatment.
This clinical trial studies the use of the financial impact assessment tool in patients with colorectal cancer that has spread from the primary site to other places in the body. Gathering information about patients with colorectal cancer over time may help doctors better understand the financial impact of cancer and help patients avoid financial problems during treatment.
This study will help us learn more about how type 1 diabetes occurs and provides monitoring to individuals at risk. In addition, the study will help us identify people who may be eligible for prevention trials.
TrialNet is a research group dedicated to the study, prevention, and early treatment of type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is now understood as a disease that develops over time in stages. Stage 1 starts with the appearance of two or more autoantibodies. This is followed by Stage 2, which is the development of abnormal blood glucose levels. Stage 3 is the diagnosis of type 1 diabetes.
