This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with a pediatric brain tumor called medulloblastoma. The purpose of this study is to find out if a reduced dose of radiation to the whole brain and spine and less chemotherapy can be given to children and young adults with WNT subtype medulloblastoma without increasing the risk of the tumor coming back. Participants can expect to be in this study for about one year, and then followed for up to 10 years.
This study will assess the features of children, younger than 12 years old, with moderate to severe eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, when their condition is not adequately controlled with topical therapies (creams or lotions) or when those therapies are not medically advisable.
This is not a treatment study. You and your child will complete questionnaires describing how their condition effects them. Information related to your child's illness will be collected by reviewing their medical chart and by assessments performed by the study team. Participation in this study will involve at least 12 visits that will take place over a period of 5 years.
The information collected in this study may lead to an improved understanding of your child's illness and may provide healthcare providers with important information for treating atopic dermatitis in the future.
In this study, we will collect congenital vascular malformation (CVM) tissue samples to examine the vascular and neurological phenotypes in the lesions. We will develop a repository of the remaining CVM samples for our future research which will substantially decrease the need for specimen collections from future CVM subjects. We will also collect blood samples and characterize proteins and RNAs profiles from serum exosomes and metabolites from CVM patients, which will help us to understand the progressive mechanism of CVM.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with a germ cell tumor. The purpose of this study is to compare the overall survival in patients treated with conventional-dose chemotherapy using the TIP regimen with high-dose chemotherapy (HDCT) plus ASCT using the TI-CE regimen as initial salvage treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory GCT. Participants can expect to be in this study for 12 to 16 weeks, depending on what group they are randomized to. Participants will continue to be followed for up to 5 years.
This study is for pediatric patients who have been diagnosed with Brain Tumors. The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of a home-based, computerized cognitive training program for patients with pediatric brain tumors who are undergoing cranial radiation therapy (CRT). Participants can expect to receive treatment on this study for about 5 to 9 weeks. Participants will complete additional testing sessions about 6 months after completing the cognitive training program.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with one of the following types of cancer: Ewing sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas, osteosarcoma, Wilms tumor or another rare tumor. The investigational drug used in this study is called cabozantinib, also known as XL184. The purpose of this study is to determine the response rate of XL184 in children and young adults. Participants in this clinical trial are expected to receive treatment for up to 5 years or until they develop side effects or the tumor worsens. Follow-up exams will be given at 30 days, 6 months and possibly yearly after study treatment completion.
This study is providing annual blood tests looking at diabetes autoantibodies for first degree relatives of patients diagnosed with type 1 diabetes who are between the ages of 1 and 45. It will also provide "diabetes screening" for second and third degree relatives age 1-20. Often parents and/or relatives wonder "if they will get diabetes" down the road or if additional offspring are "at risk" for type 1 diabetes. This study aims at assisting families with free blood testing. If positive, participants will be eligible for "prevention studies". MUSC is currently only participating in the "screening" portion of TrialNet.
This survey aims to monitor rates and practices of antibiotic prescribing in children around the world in order to identify trends and areas for improvement in the prudent use of antibiotics. Comparisons of this scale involving data collected in a standardized format have never been performed before. The primary aim of this study is to collect data on antimicrobials prescribed to all hospitalized patients at participating centers over a 24 hour period.
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with a neuroblastoma (NBL). The purpose of this study is to find out if we can improve the treatment for subjects with high-risk NBL by adding the experimental drug 131I-MIBG or the experimental drug Crizotinib to recommended therapy. The secondary purpose is to find out if we can reduce the number of stem cell transplants from two to one if we give the experimental drug 131I-MIBG during Induction, and use different drugs as part of the transplant chemotherapy given prior to stem cell infusion during Consolidation. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to 2 years. Researchers would like to continue to follow participants health for up to 10 years.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Germ Cell Tumors. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a strategy of complete surgical resection followed by surveillance can maintain an overall survival rate of at least 95.7% at two years for pediatric, adolescent and adult patients (ages 0- 50 years) with Stage I (low risk) malignant germ cell tumors, and at least 98% for patients with ovarian pure immature teratoma. The drugs used in this study are carboplatin and cisplatin. Participants will be followed for up to 10 years.
