In current practice, options for venous and lymphatic malformations remain limited. Recently an oral medication, sirolimus, has been found to benefit patients when taken once or twice a day for several months. Unfortunately there are many side effects associated with this medication, some of which can be severe including, neutropenia, oral ulcerations, and lab abnormalities. The purpose of this study is to determine if once weekly dosed sirolimus will be effective for the treatment of venous and lymphatic malformations. Additionally, the study will evaluate patient satisfaction and identify adverse effects. Participants will be on the medication for 6 months with an option to continue after this time period.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a mobile application (app) called "Goal2QuitVaping" to help adolescents quit vaping nicotine. Goal2QuitVaping was developed by our research team to assist with quitting vaping. Participants will be randomly assigned to either download the mobile app, "Goal2QuitVaping", or not. If provided with Goal2QuitVaping, participants will be asked to use the app regularly, at least once per day, throughout the study duration. Participants will be asked to complete electronic questionnaire measures throughout the study period. Participation in this study will take about 4 weeks.
Eligible adolescents and emerging adults (ages 12-25) who have used cannabis in the past year will attend 1-2 laboratory visits. They will complete a series of interviews and self-report measures, including assessment of cannabis quantity and frequency, subjective effects of cannabis, and problems due to cannabis use. They will provide a urine sample for analysis of a THC metabolite and they will provide a blood sample for analysis of genes related to cytochrome P450 enzyme activity, which are thought to be associated with metabolism of THC.
The study will test a computerized treatment with subjects ages 13-17 years who are seeking treatment for alcohol and/or cannabis use. Youth will be recruited from the Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs (CDAP) Clinic in the Department of Psychiatry at MUSC. Follow-up assessments will be conducted at one- and three-months following treatment.
Human subjects are being recruited for the proposed study to participate in usability testing for a virtual reality technology tool to be refined for assessment and prevention of risky sexual and substance use behaviors. Specifically, 15 adolescents, 15 young men, and 15 front line health care providers will participate in qualitative interviews and focus groups. Targeted enrollment is based on estimates from the existing clinical population treated by the local clinics from which participants will be recruited and the candidate's experience conducting clinical studies at these sites.
This study is for participants that have been diagnosed with a high-risk neuroblastoma that cannot be treated or did not improve with existing therapies, or the cancer came back after treatment with existing therapies. This study involves investigational drugs called 64Cu-SARTATE and 67Cu-SARTATE. The investigational drugs will be given as an IV injection. The study is divided into 2 parts: The Dose Escalation Phase and the Cohort Expansion Phase. The phase that participants will enroll to will depend on when they enter the study. The age range for participants is from 12 months to 25 years. Participants can expect to be in this study for approximately 14 months.
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a comprehensive treatment for African-American adolescents with obesity and their overweight or obese caregiver (e.g., parent). Families who decide to participate in this study will be randomly assigned to one of two intervention groups: the FIT Families group or the Home-Based Family Support (HBFS) group. This means participants have a 50/50 chance (like flipping a coin) of being in either group. Participants randomized to FIT Families will have in-home sessions with a community health worker (CHW) twice a week for the first three months, and once a week for the second three months. Participants randomized to HBFS will have in-home sessions once a week for six months with a community health worker. Participants in both groups will receive education and support for healthier lifestyles.
The study will last 18 months. During the 18-month study period, youth and caregivers will wear a FitBit activity tracker, complete study assessments, have their height and weight measured, and provide finger prick blood samples to be tested for blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Potential benefits to caregivers and youth who participate in the study include: positive changes in healthy lifestyle behaviors and weight loss, decrease in health risks associated with obesity, and improved family relations, though these cannot be guaranteed.
This study is for patients that have newly diagnosed High-Risk B-ALL, Risk-Adapted Post-Induction therapy for High-Risk B-ALL, Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia, and Disseminated B-LLy. The treatment involves medicine called chemotherapy, which fights cancer. Some patients may also need radiation therapy depending on whether the cancer has spread to the brain and spinal fluid, or the testes for males. The investigational drug on this study is inotuzumab ozogamicin. Participants can expect to be on this study for a little over 2 years and followed for up to 10 years.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Newly Diagnosed Diffuse Anaplastic Wilms Tumors (DAWT) and Relapsed Favorable Histology Wilms Tumors (FHWT). The treatment involves cancer fighting medicine called chemotherapy plus radiation therapy and/or surgery. Participants can expect to be on this study for up to 10 months and be followed by the treatment team for up to 5 years.
This is an observational study, which means that only information is collected on treatment, examinations or diagnostic tests which are a part of the routine standard of care. The participant is being asked to volunteer because they have been diagnosed with locally advanced or metastatic TRK fusion cancer treated with larotrectinib. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the safety profile and the effectiveness of VITRAKVI® under routine practice conditions.
Participants will be followed for a minimum of 5 years from the time they agree to participate in the study.
