  • Pharmacogenomics Testing in Directing the Optimal Use of Supportive Care Medications in Patients with Stage III-IV Cancer

    This early phase I trial studies how well a genetic test called pharmacogenomics works in directing the optimal use of supportive care medications in patients with stage III-IV cancer. Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes may affect the body’s response to and interaction with some prescription medications. Genes, which are inherited from parents, carry information that determines things such as eye color and blood type. Genes can also influence how patients process and respond to medications. Depending on the genetic makeup, some medications may work faster or slower or produce more or fewer side effects. Pharmacogenomics testing may help doctors learn more about how patients break down and process specific medications based on their genes and improve the quality of life of cancer patients receiving clinical care.

  • Paclitaxel Monitoring in Patients with Solid Tumors

    This trial studies if paclitaxel can be consistently measured in the blood of patients with solid tumors undergoing paclitaxel treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Nerve damage is one of the most common and severe side effects of paclitaxel. The ability to consistently measure paclitaxel in the blood may allow doctors to control the dose of paclitaxel, so that enough chemotherapy is given to kill the cancer, but the side effect of nerve damage is reduced.

  • International Ovarian & Testicular Stromal Tumor Registry

    Rare tumors are understudied, yet have the potential to shed light on vast areas of cancer research. Ovarian sex cord-stromal tumors, rare tumors of childhood and young adulthood, have recently been found to be associated with a lung cancer of early childhood called pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB). The cause of these ovarian tumors is unknown. DICER1 mutations are seen in the majority of children with PPB. Research shows DICER1 mutations are also seen in some patients with ovarian tumors. Like PPB, ovarian stromal tumors are highly curable when found in early stage; however, later forms of the disease are aggressive and often fatal. The International Ovarian Stromal Tumor Registry collects clinical and biologic data to understand why these tumors occur and how to treat them. Current work involves the study of the role of DICER1 and miRNA expression in ovarian stromal tumors. Understanding the clinical history, predisposing factors and DICER1 and miRNA expression in these ovarian tumors of childhood will lead to targeted screening and risk stratification for evidence-based treatment and biologically rational therapies. These efforts will improve the lives of children by increasing survival and reducing late effects. The specific goals of the International Ovarian and Testicular Stromal Tumor Registry are: 1. to understand risk factors by studying age, pathologic subtype, histopathologic features, tumor invasiveness, degree of differentiation, presence of metastasis 2. to collect information on personal and family history in order to refine the clinical characteristics of patients and families with and without germline DICER1 mutations and other genetic predisposing factors 3. to determine whether there is a pattern of gene expression or DNA alterations that correlate with predisposition to ovarian tumors, biologic behavior and clinical outcome 4. to determine optimal screening regimens 5. to use clinical data obtained through the Registry to refine treatment algorithms 6. to establish a collection of annotated biology specimens (tumor tissue and germline DNA) for future research

  • Tissue Procurement and Natural History Study of Patients With Malignant Mesothelioma

    Background: - Malignant mesothelioma is a malignancy arising from the mesothelial cells of the pleura, peritoneum, pericardium, or tunica vaginalis. - Mesothelioma accounts for 0.10% of deaths annually in the United States. Malignant pleural mesothelioma is the most common of these, comprising of 80% of the cases with an annual incidence of about 2,500 in the United States. - The median survival from diagnosis of pleural mesothelioma is approximately 12 months. The majority of patients present with stage III or IV disease with 85-90% of patients considered unresectable at diagnosis. - Peritoneal mesothelioma has a better prognosis than pleural mesothelioma; nevertheless, patients undergoing therapy for peritoneal mesothelioma have few well-studied treatment options due in large part to the rarity of the disease. Objectives: -To allow sample acquisition for use in the study of mesothelioma. Eligibility: - All patients age greater than or equal to 2 years with malignant mesothelioma - Must be able and willing to provide informed consent if 18 or over; parent or guardian must be able and willing to provide consent for patients under the age of 18 Design: - Up to 1000 subjects will be enrolled. - Patients will be followed to determine the course of disease and to record any treatment received for mesothelioma. - Patients will undergo sampling of blood, urine, tumor and abnormal body fluids for tissue banking. - Studies which may be performed on banked material include genetic and genomic studies, establishment of cell cultures and immunologic studies.

  • Rapid Autopsy and Procurement of Cancer Tissue

    Background: - Individuals with cancer of the lung, chest cavity, ovary, or bladder, as well as patients who have been treated with adoptive cell therapy unfortunately commonly succumb to their disease. Some agree to donate their bodies to cancer research that may help the medical community better understand these diseases. Studies of cancer tumor tissue obtained soon after death may be used to answer questions about the origins, progression, and treatment of cancer. Researchers want to conduct a study that involves planned collection of cancer tumor tissue shortly after death. To do so, they will arrange to provide inpatient hospice care for people with non-small cell lung cancer, ovarian cancer, bladder cancer, or patients who have been treated with adoptive cell therapy. Objectives: - To collect cancer tissue biopsy samples as soon as possible after death. Eligibility: - Individuals who have cancer of the lung, chest cavity, ovary, or bladder, or those who have been treated with adoptive cell therapy and are planning to receive end-of-life hospice care are eligible to participate. Design: - Participants will agree to receive inpatient hospice care at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center. Full details on end-of-life care preference will be acknowledged. - An autopsy will be performed at the clinical center within 3 hours of death. Tumor tissue will be collected from the primary site of cancer and from any areas of the body to which the cancer has spread. - Participants will not receive further cancer treatments as part of this study. This is a tissue collection study only....

  • Collection of Blood From Cancer Patients for Genetic Analysis

    Background: - Some genes may be associated with a greater chance of side effects during cancer treatment. These genes may also make certain treatments less effective. Researchers want to collect blood or cheek swab samples from people having cancer treatment to study these genes. Objectives: - To obtain a blood or cheek swab sample to study genetic differences that may affect cancer treatment. Eligibility: - Individuals with cancer who are being treated at the National Cancer Institute. Design: - Participants will provide a blood sample for study. - Participants who have blood-based cancer, such as leukemia, will provide a cheek swab sample. - If the blood or cheek swab sample does not have enough genetic material for analysis, an additional sample may be collected.

  • Northwestern Ovarian Cancer Early Detection and Prevention Program

    This study collects samples of blood and / or urine to help develop new tests for the early detection and treatment of cancer and to improve the quality of life of women at increased risk of developing ovarian cancer and for those women diagnosed with the disease. It is difficult to detect early-stage ovarian cancer, and most women are diagnosed with advanced stage disease. Earlier detection of ovarian cancer leads to earlier treatment and improved survival and long term outcomes. Studying samples of blood and / or urine from patients with ovarian cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer.

  • CANscriptTM Clinical Outcomes in a Real-World Setting (ANCERS)-2

    The purpose of this study is to test the CANscript™ sensitivity assay, which is a new and different assay developed to test the sensitivity of different cancer types to physician selected therapies (both drugs and / or drug combinations) indicated for the stage and type of cancer for treatment. CANscript™ tests how a patients specific tumor reacts to the therapies being considered by the treating physician. CANscript™ test results have been shown to closely correspond with actual clinical results, providing physicians with information that may help him / her develop a more personalized cancer treatment and care plan based on the patients specific condition. The researchers want to see if CANscript™ test results are helpful in selecting the treatments prescribed and provided. There will be about 800 people taking part in this study, across 5 different tumor types. The study is designed to assess the decision impact of the CANscript™ test results in informing physicians in therapy selection.
