Active Surveillance, Bleomycin, Carboplatin, Etoposide, or Cisplatin in Treating Pediatric and Adult Patients with Germ Cell Tumors

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase III trial studies how well active surveillance, bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, or cisplatin work in treating pediatric and adult patients with germ cell tumors. Active surveillance may help doctors to monitor subjects with low risk germ cell tumors after their tumor is removed. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, and cisplatin, 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.

Olaparib and Entinostat in Treating Patients with Recurrent, Platinum-Refractory or Resistant Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian Tube Cancers

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of olaparib and entinostat and to see how well they work in treating patients with ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancers that have come back or do not respond to platinum-based chemotherapy. Tumor samples from patients will be tested for a specific change in their genetic materials (DNA) called homologous recombination deficiency (HRD). Patients who lack this genetic change will be eligible to participate in this study. Olaparib and entinostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Early Palliative Care in Improving Recovery and Quality of Life in Patients with Cancer Undergoing Abdominal Surgery, the SCOPE Trial

Multiple Cancer Types

This trial studies early palliative care in improving recovery and quality of life in patients with cancer undergoing abdominal surgery. Frequently people diagnosed with cancer experience physical and emotional symptoms during the course of their disease. Introduction to a team of clinicians that specialize in the lessening of many of these distressing symptoms may improve overall care. This team of clinicians is called the palliative care team and they focus on ways to improve pain and other symptom management (i.e. shortness of breath, fatigue, anxiety, etc.) and to assist patients and their families in coping with the emotional, social, and spiritual issues associated with a cancer diagnosis. This study is being done to see if receiving palliative care earlier is more useful compared to receiving palliative care late in the course of illness.
