This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and Down Sydnrome (DS). The purpose of this study is to find out if subjects with standard risk DS AML can be treated with less treatment and still have successful outcomes as well as to find out if subjects with high risk DS AML can be successfully treated with stronger chemotherapy. Participants can expect to be in this study for about 6 months.
This is a Randomized , Double blinded study to evaluate how effective a single dose of experimental drug called MEDI8897 is at preventing lung disease caused by RSV disease in healthy preterm infants born between 29 weeks 0 days and 34 weeks 6 days.This study also evaluate safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics (PK) of MEDI8897 in healthy preterm infants compared with placebo.
This study tests an intervention to help children with sickle cell disease ages 0-7 years and their families. The intervention is available on a smartphone or tablet, and includes an app for keeping track of symptoms and messaging with a health care provider.

The purpose of this study is to find out whether a web-based intervention using a mobile device over a 12-week period is helpful in managing symptoms of Sickle Cell Disease in children, such as pain and fatigue and quality of life. For more information, please contact Shannon at 843-792-9379.
This study is being done to study the effect of putting povidone-iodine ophthalmic or balanced saline solutions in the eye has on respirations during strabismus (eye alignment) surgery. Both of these solutions are FDA approved for use in this manner and will be done after patients are under anesthesia. The solution to be used is determined by randomization upon enrollment and will either be 3 drops of povidone-iodine ophthalmic solution in each eye (Group A) or 3 drops of BSS in each eye (Group B). The eye solution intervention period will take less than 5 minutes and will cause either only a slight delay or no delay in the surgical time. The only other intervention is the collection of data after induction (but just prior to IV insertion), as well as before and after the drops of eye solution are delivered.
This is a one year study comparing once a week subcutaneous long acting growth hormone with once a day growth hormone currently available commercially. All eligible subjects will be newly diagnosed, medically untreated growth hormone deficient children who have not yet entered puberty. A 2:1 randomization ratio will be used for the Transcon hGH treatment cohort and the daily rhGH treatment cohort, respectively. 150 subjects will be enrolled study-wide This study will be conducted in approximately 100 trial sites in approximately 20 countries in North and South America, Europe, Middle East and North Africa, and Oceania.
This study is for pediatric patients that have been diagnosed with cancer and are receiving chemotherapy. The investigational drugs in this study are netupitant and palonosetron. The purpose of this study is to learn more about how well the combination of oral netupitant and oral palonosetron works in preventing nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy in children. Participation in the study will last for a maximum of 31 days, which includes a screening period up to 14 days before randomization (up to 7 days for patients aged less than 2 years), the day of enrollment/randomization, administration of study drugs and chemotherapy (Study Day 1), and the control visits (Study Days 2 to 5).
This is a study to develop a test for radiation exposure in the event of a nuclear event such as the detonation of a nuclear device or widespread radiation exposure. We will collect blood samples from a variety of different types of human subjects whose current medical status could possibly have an effect on the results of the test, such as trauma, burns, infections or a damaged immune system or young children. The goal is to ensure that these conditions do not affect the results of the test.
The goals of this study are to understand the mechanisms behind the development of heart failure in children born with complicated heart defects consisting of a functional single pumping chamber, improve the ability to objectively measure cardiac function in these patients and determine the relationship of these pathophysiologic mechanisms to outcomes.
