Many adolescents experience traumatic events, such as child abuse, physical or sexual assault, or witnessing violence. Teens who experience trauma are more likely to have problems with substance use and risky sexual activity. We want to understand how parents can support their teens and help keep them safe after traumatic events.
The project will study how substance abuse and traumatic events are related to how mothers and children respond to rewards, and how they interact with each other. Participating mothers and children will complete tasks in an MRI scanner, questionnaires, and a social behavior task.
This study is recruiting youth between the ages of 12 and 21 who use electronic cigarettes (e-cigs, vaping) and are interested in quitting. The purpose of this research study is to explore if youth vapers can quit using a smartphone application that delivers incentives. This study is completely remote (no in-person visits) with phone call visits and the use of a mobile app. If enrolled, participants will have brief weekly phone call visits for 4 weeks and a follow-up call on week 8. Participants will be encouraged to quit vaping during the study. Participants will be asked to submit selfie videos via the app providing saliva cotinine (by product of nicotine) samples to confirm that they have quit vaping.
ATHN 9 is a natural history study to assess the safety of various Von Willebrand Factor (VWF) regimens for different indications (on-demand, surgery and prophylaxis) in adult and pediatric participants with clinically severe congenital VWD.
The purpose of the study is to see if use of the RECELL device will help heal your
partial-thickness burn faster and decrease the need for skin grafting compared with a standardized wound dressing. The data collected in this current study will provide additional information about the safety and effectiveness of the RECELL® device for treatment of partial-thickness burns. The duration of each participant will last up to 12 months. Visits will include photograph documentation of the wound and various health assessments.
Youth with one or more chronic diseases are at increased risk of further complications, disease, or even early death as they enter their adult years. Recent increases in both asthma and obesity among youth have led to high health care utilization, increased health-related complications, and expanded risks of subsequent cardiovascular disease burden. The research team will develop educational content in core areas (e.g., fatigue, physical activity) for Managing AsThma AnD Obesity Related Symptoms (MATADORS), an mHealth technology-enhanced nurse-guided intervention. Youth with asthma and obesity and their primary caregivers will participate in interviews to explore their perspectives on barriers, facilitators, needs, and preferences toward adopting health behaviors, medication adherence, disease awareness, symptom self-management behaviors, and utilization of a mobile smartphone platform. Additional details on content availability, delivery approaches, system needs, and functionality will be explored through semi-structured interview questions. Health care providers (physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, dietitians, and respiratory and exercise therapists) will be invited to participate in interviews to seek their input on patient-caregiver needs, priority clinical focal areas, recommendations for symptom self-management, and preferences for intervention delivery. Interview findings will be used to inform intervention and app design. Providing youth with strategies to enhance symptom self-management may result in decreased symptom prevalence, improved quality of life, and long-term reduction of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality as they move into adulthood.
This study is for pediatric patients that have been diagnosed with advanced solid tumors and hematological malignancies that have stopped responding to standard therapy. The investigational drugs in this study are durvalumab and tremelimumab. The purpose of this research study to find out if the study drugs called durvalumab and tremelimumab will work and be safe for the treatment of advanced cancer in children. Participants can expect to be on this study for up to 6 years.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed metastatic germ cell tumors. This study will compare the standard chemotherapy regimen with an accelerated chemotherapy regimen using the same drugs to see if the accelerated chemotherapy regimen is beneficial but not more toxic than the standard chemotherapy regimen. The accelerated chemotherapy is experimental. Participants can expect to be on study for about 3 months and continue to be followed for up to 5 years.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with osteosarcoma and were once treated with a chemotherapy drug called cisplatin with or without ifosafamide. The purpose of this study is to look at potential effects on fertility in male osteosarcoma survivors treated with cisplatin with or without ifosfamide compared to male controls without a history of cancer. Participants can expect to be on this study for up 3 months.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Epstein-Barr Virus associated Post-Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder (EBV-PTLD). The investigational drug in this study is tabelecleucel. Tabelecleucel is a product containing special immune allogeneic cells, called EBV-Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (EBV-CTLs), that are made in the laboratory starting with cells from a healthy person who is immune to EBV. The purpose of this study is to test how well tabelecleucel works to treat EBV-PTLD following SOT in patients who have not responded to rituximab or rituximab plus chemotherapy treatment and to see what side effects happen. Your participation will help us to understand more about tabelecleucel. In the first 12-month period, participants will be asked to come to the clinic for an estimated 11 to 19 study visits and a minimum of 2 scans, depending on the number of cycles of treatment they are given. After treatment is done, participants will enter into the follow-up phase, and will continue to come into the clinic for scheduled check-ups for up to 24 months after the first dose of tabelecleucel was given. Participant information on the status of their disease and any new treatment will be collected for up to an additional 3 years. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to five years total.
