RTOG-1216: Head and Neck Cancer and the Effects of Radiation Therapy with Cisplatin, Docetaxel

This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well radiation therapy works when given together with cisplatin compared to docetaxel or cetuximab and docetaxel after surgery in treating patients with stage III-IV squamous cell head and neck cancer.

EAQ162CD: Financial Burden Assessment in Patients with Stage I-III Colon or Rectal Cancer Undergoing Treatment

This research trial studies the financial burden in patients with Stage I-III Colon or Rectal Cancer who are undergoing treatment. Collecting data from patients about their cost and quality of life may help doctors to better understand the impact of cancer treatment on a patient’s employment and finances.

AFT-25: Comparison of Operative to Monitoring and Endocrine Therapy (COMET) Trial For Low Risk DCIS

This study looks at the risks and benefits of active surveillance (AS) compared to guideline concordant care (GCC) in the setting of a pragmatic prospective randomized trial for low risk DCIS. Our overarching hypothesis is that management of low-risk Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) using an AS approach does not yield inferior cancer or quality of life outcomes compared to GCC.

Observational Cohort Study of Patients with Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC)

The purpose of this study is to describe patterns of care in CRPC patients, as well as health-related quality of life (HRQoL) outcomes associated with CRPC and its management.

This study will also describe factors influencing treatment decisions including reason(s) for treatment choices and triggers for treatment changes for CRPC as well as describe clinical outcomes based on patient characteristics.

ALTE05N1: Long-Term Follow-Up of Patients Who Have Participated in Children's Oncology Group Studies

This clinical trial keeps track of and collects follow-up information from patients who are currently enrolled on or have participated in a Children's Oncology Group study. Developing a way to keep track of patients who have participated in Children's Oncology Group studies may allow doctors learn more about the long-term effects of cancer treatment and help them reduce problems related to treatment and improve patient quality of life.

EA1131: Breast Cancer and the Effects of Platinum Based Chemotherapy

This randomized phase III trial studies how well cisplatin or carboplatin (platinum based chemotherapy) works compared to observation in treating patients with remaining (residual) basal-like triple-negative breast cancer following chemotherapy after surgery (neoadjuvant). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and carboplatin, 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. It is not yet known whether cisplatin or carboplatin is more effective than observation in treating patients with residual triple negative basal-like breast cancer.

S1400: A Biomarker-Driven Master Protocol for Squamous Cell Lung Cancer

This screening and multi-sub-study randomized phase II/III trial will establish a method for genomic screening of similar large cancer populations followed by assigning and accruing simultaneously to a multi-sub-study hybrid "Master Protocol" (S1400). The type of cancer trait (biomarker) will determine to which sub-study, within this protocol, a participant will be assigned to compare new targeted cancer therapy, designed to block the growth and spread of cancer, or combinations to standard of care therapy with the ultimate goal of being able to approve new targeted therapies in this setting. In addition, the protocol includes a "non-match" sub-study which will include all screened patients not eligible for any of the biomarker-driven sub-studies. This sub-study will compare a non-match therapy to standard of care also with the goal of approval.
