Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with follicular lymphoma. The investigational drugs used in this study are TGR-120 and Lenalidomide.The purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of using the different drugs in combination with an antibody (Obinutuzumab). Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 5 years. There are 3 study groups. Groups 1 and 2 will get treatment on the study for 48 weeks (about 11 months). Group 3 will get treatment on the study for 42 weeks (about 9

Summary

This study is for patients that have suffered a femur fracture due to metastatic cancer. The standard of care for this type of fracture is to stabilize the bone with an intramedullary nail. When preparing the femur for the nail, pressure can cause fat to enter the bloodstream and travel to the heart, causing heart and lung complications. The procedure being investigated in this study is called reduced pressure reaming. In this procedure the surgeon will use a device with suction when preparing the bone for the nail in order to decrease pressure and decrease the amount of fat that enters the bloodstream. Patients will be randomly assigned to either the standard preparation (standard reaming), or the reduced pressure preparation (reduced pressure reaming). After surgery, both treatment groups will followed according to standard practices at 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months.

A Multicenter Pilot Study of Reduced Intensity Conditioning and Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation Followed by Targeted Immunotherapy in Children, Adolescents and Young Adults with Poor Risk CD30+ Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL) Save

Summary

This study is for subjects who have been diagnosed with a type of lymph gland disease called Hodgkin Lymphoma which has come back or has not gone away after treatment, including the best treatment known for these diseases. Researchers believe subjects will benefit from an allogeneic (from another human) stem cell transplant which has been offered as a form of treatment for this disease in many other patients. After transplant we will provide a type of medication that targets the CD30+ protein, a protein that is commonly expressed in Hodgkin Lymphoma. This medication is called Brentuximab Vedotin (or Brentuximab). Subjects will be offered treatment with lower doses of chemotherapy drugs, as compared to the higher doses of chemotherapy drugs historically used in transplants for other diseases. This is known as reduced intensity therapy.The main purpose of this study is to determine the safety and outcome of following reduced intensity conditioning and allogeneic stem cell transplantation in selected patients with Hodgkin Lymphoma (specifically CD30+ HL patients) with Brentuximab Vedotin. Subjects can expect to be in this study for 3 years.

URCC 14040: A Randomized Clinical Trial Comparing the Effectiveness of Yoga, Survivorship Health Education, and Cognitive Behavioral therapy for Treating Insomnia in Cancer Survivors Save

Summary

This research study is for patients who have completed all scheduled surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy for their cancer within the last 6-12 months and are currently having some type of sleep disturbance. While there is no standard treatment for sleep disturbance for cancer survivors, people who do not take part in this study may take over-the-counter or prescription medications, receive cognitive behavioral therapy, or exercise as a means of attempting to manage their sleep problems.

Sleep disturbance, particularly insomnia, is a common problem for cancer survivors. Insomnia can be described as excessive daytime napping, difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, or waking up earlier than you would like. Insomnia can increase fatigue, impair physical function, impair immune function, cause circadian rhythms (known as your biological clock) to be disrupted and decrease quality of life.

Because there is no ideal standard of care for effectively treating sleep problems in cancer survivors, the purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of three different treatments for improving sleep problems and determine which is best. The three treatments are yoga, survivorship health education, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT-I).

Study participation will be approximately 8 months.

Summary

This clinical trial is being done to collect information about various long-term effects commonly seen in children who survive a stem cell transplant. In particular, information about renal (kidney), cardio-metabolic (heart disease and diabetes) and skeletal (bone) long-term effects will be collected for two years after transplant.
