This phase II trial studies how well real-time pharmacokinetic therapeutic drug monitoring works in preventing stomatitis from developing in patients with hormone receptor positive breast cancer, pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, or kidney cancer that are receiving a type of cancer drug called everolimus. Stomatitis is a common side effect of everolimus that causes inflammation of the mouth, with or without oral ulcers, and frequently leads to patients discontinuing the medication. Monitoring the blood levels of everolimus and making adjustments in a patient's dose may be able to decrease the incidence of stomatitis, while maintaining the effectiveness of everolimus to treat the cancer.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of small interfering ribonucleic acid (siRNA)-transfected peripheral blood mononuclear cells APN401 (APN401) in treating patients with melanoma, kidney, or pancreatic cancer, or other solid tumors that have spread to other parts of the body or that cannot be removed by surgery. There are factors in immune cells in the blood that inhibit their ability to kill cancers. Treating white blood cells with one of these factors in the laboratory may help the white blood cells kill more cancer cells when they are put back in the body.
This pilot phase I trial studies the side effects and best way to give stereotactic body radiation therapy and T-cell infusion in treating patients with metastatic kidney cancer. Giving total body irradiation before a T-cell infusion stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. After treatment, stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and stored. Chemotherapy is given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the radiation therapy.
This pilot clinical trial studies stereotactic body radiation therapy in treating patients with metastatic kidney cancer undergoing surgery. Stereotactic radiation therapy may be able to send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue.
This randomized clinical trial studies the Family Caregiver Palliative Care Intervention in supporting caregivers of patients with stage II-IV gastrointestinal, gynecologic, urologic and lung cancers. Education and telephone counseling may reduce stress and improve the well-being and quality of life of caregivers of cancer patients.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of autologous dendritic cells in treating patients with metastatic kidney cancer. Vaccines made from a person's tumor cells and white blood cells may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells.
The purpose of the study is to conduct research of a new PET radiopharmaceutical in cancer patients. We will assess the uptake of this novel radiopharmaceutical in subjects with breast cancer, lung cancer, glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) and other cancers requiring antiangiogenesis treatment.
The purpose of this research study is to determine how sunitinib (sunitinib malate) causes fatigue. Patients will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire (survey) to rate their levels of fatigue every two weeks while they are participating in this research study. The questionnaire takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and is 9 questions. A series of physical measurements for fatigue will be performed before the first dose of sunitinib and again (4) weeks later to see if there are any changes in physical level of fatigues
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects pazopanib (pazopanib hydrochloride) (also called Votrient®) may have on MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans, blood pressure, and various proteins in the blood. Pazopanib is Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for treating renal cell cancer. It is an agent that prevents angiogenesis, which is new blood vessel formation. The use of pazopanib described in this study is a standard of care, but the additional MRI and blood tests that will be performed are experimental
RATIONALE: Panobinostat and everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth or by blocking blood flow to the tumor. PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of giving panobinostat together with everolimus and to see how well they work in treating patients with metastatic or unresectable renal cell cancer that does not respond to treatment with sunitinib malate or sorafenib tosylate
