The purpose of this study is to find out whether a web-based intervention using a mobile device is helpful for teens learning to care for and manage symptoms of their sickle cell disease. The intervention lasts 12 weeks with a 3-month follow up period, and uses a smartphone or a tablet. For more information, please contact Shannon at 843-792-9379.
The purpose of this study is to test and compare the effects of an investigational (being tested) drug called apremilast to placebo in pediatric plaque psoriasis.
Participants who are determined to be eligible to participate will be assigned by chance (or randomized) to treatment with apermilast or placebo. At Week 16, participants will receive apremilast regardless of treatment group. Study and safety assessments, including questionnaires and blood draws, will be completed at study visits. The maximum amount of time participants will be in the study is 71 weeks (at least 19 visits).
This study aims to collect data to determine if pediatric subjects up to 3 years of age develop abnormal thyroid function after exposure to iodinated contrast agents. This study will investigate subject thyroid function before and after administration of ISOVUE through pre-dose, 1 and 2 month post-dose follow-ups including TSH, T3, and T4 lab-work, and 6 and 12 month follow ups of a questionnaire.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Leukemia or Lymphoma. and have been treated on one of the following studies: Pediatric Oncology Group (POG) 9404, 9425, 9426, or Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) ALL Consortium 95-01. The purpose of this study is to look at the heart function of patients selected by change to get DRZ compared to the heart function of patients selected by chance not to get DRZ. In this study, they will also look at gender, age at cancer diagnosis, current age, dose of chemotherapy, and if chest radiation influences the risk of early heard damage. Participants in this clinical trial are expected to come to one clinic visit.
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.
