The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of access to clinical and research resources for families of children affected with a phosphatase and tensin homology (PTEN) mutation. Ultimately, the researchers hope to be able to use this information to develop a standard of care for affected individuals and their family members. Family members/legal guardians of an individual with a PTEN mutation enrolled in the Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network (RDCRN) Contact Registry will be invited via email to participate in this study.
This trial studies how well dynamic susceptibility contrast-magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) works in determining radiation necrosis and tumor progression in participants with cancer that has spread to the brain and are being treated with radiation therapy. Diagnostic procedures, such as dynamic susceptibility contrast-MRI, may improve the ability to determine indeterminate post-treatment changes seen on imaging after radiation therapy.
This clinical trial studies how well Talking Pictures social media intervention works in reducing depressive symptoms and improving spiritual well-being and quality of life in adolescent and young adult cancer patients. Talking Pictures social media intervention may help doctors better learn how to most effectively provide psychosocial support to adolescent and young adult cancer patients.
Recently, the medical management of cancer patients has considerably improved the prognosis of these patients and today some cancers are becoming "chronic diseases". As a result, new adverse effects (AEs) are observed, particularly cardiac. These "new" cardiac AEs are the consequence of a significant increase in patients life expectancy (delayed AEs not previously seen) but also the use of new pharmacological classes of anticancer drugs such as kinase inhibitors. The incidence of these cardiac AEs varies according to the patient profile and the anticancer molecules used, but their impact on the morbidity and mortality of the patients is significant. In this context, we started at the University Hospital of Caen Normandy in September 2017 a cardio-oncology program entitled "prevention and pharmacological management of cardiac adverse effects induced by drugs used in Oncology" (PICARO program). This program involves the pharmacology department (opening of a dedicated consultation), the cardiology department (opening of a dedicated ultrasound consultation), vascular medicine departement (opening of a dedicated consultation) and the oncology federation. This program aims to be regional in the future. We therefore propose to build a cohort backed up to the PICARO program to assess the regional impact of cardiac AEs of anticancer drugs and thus to be better able to specify the number of AEs, the incidence and regional prevalence of these drugs. . The constitution of this cohort is only the first step towards the constitution in the near future (2 years) of an observatory and then a regional registry of cardiac AEs induced by anticancer drugs. The objectives associated with the establishment of such a registry would be to reduce the number of cardiac AEs, the hospitalizations caused by these AEs, a better information of health professionals and patients, an improvement in the screening of patients at risk, all coming back in the context of health, clinical, epidemiological and pharmacological surveillance.
This phase I pilot trial studies how well video distraction works to decrease the use of sedation in pediatric participants during radiation therapy. Radiation treatment requires participants to lie very still (for accuracy). Many children cannot do this without sedation. Watching movies during radiation may distract children so they don't need sedation to complete treatment.
The aim of this study is to compare endoscopic ultrasound guided-fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) with a standard 22-gauge needle using "standard suction", "slow-pull" and "wet suction" for thoracic/abdominal solid/solid-cystic lesions. Investigators intend to compare the effectiveness and safety of the three methods in order to discover the optimized technique for obtaining diagnostic material and making accurate diagnosis.
This trial studies the preference of room setting and waiting time in participants with cancer that has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes or other places in the body and their caregivers who are seen in the outpatient supportive/palliative care center. Room setting preferences of participants and caregivers may help to understand their opinion regarding direct rooming system in the outpatient supportive/palliative care center.
This trial studies how well a mobile smartphone application called Quitting Schedule works in helping participants to quit smoking. Quitting Schedule is based on WebCASSI, a computer-based initiative that offered state of-the-art smoking cessation treatment and counseling to MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC) patients and served as a portal for non-patients to find information regarding smoking cessation advice and treatments. Quitting Schedule may help participants to quit smoking.
This is a Phase 1 open label sequential dose escalation and cohort expansion study evaluating the safety, tolerability and preliminary clinical activity of COM701 as monotherapy and in combination with a programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) inhibitor.
Arginine methylation mediated by protein arginine methyl-transferases (PRMTs) is an important post-translational modification of proteins involved in a diverse range of cellular processes. Misregulation and overexpression of PRMT1 (a type I PRMT) has been associated with a number of solid and hematopoietic cancers. GSK3368715 leads to inhibition of tumor cell growth across tumor types with cytotoxic response observed in lymphoma, acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and a subset of solid tumor cell lines. This study will assess the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), and preliminary clinical activity of GSK33368715 in subjects with relapsed/refractory DLBCL and selected solid tumors with frequent methyl-thioadenosine phosphorylase (MTAP)-deficiency. The study will consist of two parts. In Part 1 (Dose Escalation) escalating doses of GSK3368715 will be evaluated and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) will be established in subjects with selected solid relapsed/refractory tumors. In Part 2 (Dose Expansion), this RP2D will be further investigated in two expansion cohorts; subjects with DLBCL (Expansion Cohort 2A) and relapsed/refractory solid tumors including pancreatic, bladder, and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)(Expansion Cohort 2B). The study includes a screening period, an intervention period and follow up. Approximately 40 subjects will be enrolled in Part 1 and 141 will be enrolled in Part 2.
