This study is for subjects that are about to receive high dose cyclophosphamide before a blood or bone marrow transplant (BMT). The investigational drug in this study is Olanzapine. This research is being done to find out whether adding olanzapine to standard medications will be helpful in controlling chemotherapy induced nausea in children. The total length of participation in this study will depend on how many days you are scheduled to receive chemotherapy, but can be up to a maximum of 2 weeks. We will review your chart for 100 days after transplant. There will be no extra visits to MUSC due to participating in the research study.
This study is for children age 0-2 who have been diagnosed with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). In this study, participants will be randomized (select by chance) into groups that will decide the dose of chemotherapy they will receive, receive chemotherapy prior to a blood stem cell transplant, and have blood drawn for research tests. The purpose of this research study is to find out if lower doses of a chemotherapy drug called busulfan before stem cell transplant can help patients with SCID, and to see if the device the CliniMACS® is effective in preparing donor stem cells before the transplant. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 3 years.
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness (how well the drug works), safety, and tolerability of the investigational drug called NKTR-214, when combined with nivolumab versus nivolumab given alone, both before and after radical cystectomy versus standard of care in participants with muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) who are cisplatin ineligible. The treatment will be given to participants, who have bladder cancer that has invaded into the bladder muscle, and who cannot receive a chemotherapy treatment called cisplatin. The standard treatment in this situation is to have surgery to remove the bladder (radical cystectomy). In this trial, one-third of patients will be assigned to have NKTR-214 and nivolumab before and after surgery, one-third will have nivolumab before and after surgery, and one-third will have surgery alone. NKTR-214 and nivolumab are treatments that boost the immune system to fight cancer. It is unknown if NKTR-214 and nivolumab or nivolumab alone will have an effect (good, bad, or no effect) on the participant or their cancer.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with relapsed (the disease has gotten worse after a period of improvement) or refractory (the disease does not respond to treatment) aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma .The investigational therapy in this study is tisagenlecleucel treatment. This treatment includes collecting T cells from patient's blood and changing them by gene transfer to make them recognize tumor cells. The purpose of this study is to see how well tisagenlecleucel therapy treats the disease and how safe the treatment is when compared to Standard or Care treatment. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 60 months and in follow up for up to 15 years.
The goal of the study is to characterize the features of Infantile Hemangiomas before and after treatment. Certain characteristics of the hemangioma can be seen more clearly with a closer and more resolute image of the lesion (abnormal vessels etc.). Developing a greater understanding of these characteristics? may help clinicians better predict the course of infantile hemangiomas in children.
Specific aim 1: to correlate images seen on dermoscopy with regression of the hemangioma.
Specific aim 2: to provide features that may help to predict a better response to treatment.
Adult males are being asked to volunteer because they have been diagnosed to have bladder cancer that has spread and subjects tumor has a specific type of biomarker called PD-L1 (biomarkers can help to tell us what is going on in subjects body).This is a research study to find out if experimental medications called pembrolizumab and lenvatinib, when administered together. Participants can expect to be on this study for 2 years.
This is a research study to compare the effects and safety, of tislelizumab plus chemotherapy to placebo (an inactive substance) plus chemotherapy on you and your Unresectable or Metastatic Gastric or Gastroesophageal Junction Adenocarcinoma (GC/GEJ) to find out the most effective treatment. The study will take place over 3 years 4 months and will include about 17-18 office -visits to the study doctor.
This clinical study includes two phases, a "treatment phase" (i.e. phase during which subjects receive avelumab) and a "long-term follow up phase" (i.e. phase during which subjects are followed after stopping avelumab), which is the phase you are in. The purpose of the "long-term follow up phase" is to see if treatment with avelumab is safe and well tolerated, and how well the treatment worked in subjects like you who have been treated with avelumab in the past. This "long-term follow-up" portion may continue until a maximum of 5 years after the last participant in the clinical study receives the last dose of avelumab.
The purpose of this study is to find out if cabozantinib in combination with atezolizumab is effective in treating liver cancer compared to sorafenib alone in people who have not received prior treatment. Subjects are being asked to take part in this clinical research study because they have hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) that has not been previously treated for advanced disease.It is estimated that subjects will take study drug(s) for this study for approximately 1 to 6 months.
This study will assess the safety and toxicity of oral Curcuma longa extract (Curcumin) in patients with breast cancer.
The overall goal of this study is to see if taking BCM-95 (curcumin) will change the make up of the tumors of patients who have breast cancer. BCM-95 is a supplement made from the curcumin plant, which helps to reduce inflammation in the body. BCM-95 is not approved by the United State Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of your disease.
