Yttrium Y 90 Resin Microspheres in Collecting Data from Patients with Liver Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery for the RESIN Liver Tumor Study
This research trial studies Yttrium Y 90 resin microspheres in collecting data from patients with liver cancer not capable of being removed by surgery (unresectable) for the radiation-emitting SIR-spheres in non-resectable (RESIN) liver tumor study. The information generated will help doctors better understand treatment patterns involving Y90 therapy, gain additional insights in the long-term outcomes for patients, as well as guide future research for using Y90 therapy, especially for those conditions where data is currently very limited or lacking.
Genetic Testing in Screening Patients with Stage IB-IIIA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Been or Will Be Removed by Surgery (The ALCHEMIST Screening Trial)
Multiple Cancer Types
This phase III ALCHEMIST trial studies genetic testing in screening patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been or will be removed by surgery. Studying the genes in a patient’s tumor cells may help doctors select the best treatment for patients that have certain genetic changes.

Erlotinib Hydrochloride in Treating Patients with Stage IB-IIIA Non-small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Been Completely Removed by Surgery (An ALCHEMIST Treatment Trial)
This phase III ALCHEMIST trial studies how well erlotinib hydrochloride compared to observation works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been completely removed by surgery. Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
Characterization of Cardiac Function, Pulmonary Function, and Body Composition Before and After Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy for Head and Neck Cancer
Cognitive Assessment and MRI Program in Identifying Cognitive Effects of Androgen Receptor Directed Therapies in Patients with Advanced Prostate Cancer
This clinical trial studies how well cognitive assessment and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) program work in identifying cognitive effects of androgen receptor directed therapies such as abiraterone acetate and enzalutamide in patients with prostate cancer that has spread from where it started to other places in the body. Cognitive assessment and MRI program may help to assess the cognitive function of patients during treatment and identify genetic variations that might make patients more or less sensitive to cognitive changes during treatment for prostate cancer.
A Study of Nivolumab Plus Brentuximab Vedotin in Patients Between 5 and 30 Years Old, With Hodgkin's Lymphoma (cHL), Relapsed or Refractory From First Line Treatment
The purpose of this study is to determine whether nivolumab plus brentuximab vedotin (followed by brentuximab vedotin plus bendamustine in patient with suboptimal response) is safe and effective in treating patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma (cHL). Eligible patients are children, adolescents, and young adults relapsed or refractory to first line.
The Role of KIR-favorably Mismatched Haploidentical Transplantation and KIR-polymorphisms in Determining Outcomes of Children with ALL/AML/MDS Undergoing Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation
Multiple Cancer Types
Myelodysplastic Syndrome, Pediatric Leukemia, Pediatrics
The Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY) trial is the first ever international multi-center randomized controlled trial in bone cancer surgery. In order to avoid amputation for bone cancer in the leg, complex limb-saving operations are performed. However, infections with devastating complications following surgery are common. Surgeons from across the world will randomize patients to receive either short- or long-duration antibiotic regimens after surgery with the goal of identifying the best regimen to reduce these infections.
Crizotinib in Treating Patients with Stage IB-IIIA Non-small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Been Removed by Surgery and ALK Fusion Mutations (An ALCHEMIST Treatment Trial)
This phase III ALCHEMIST trial studies how well crizotinib works in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer that has been removed by surgery and has a mutation in a protein called anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Mutations, or changes, in ALK can make it very active and important for tumor cell growth and progression. Crizotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the ALK protein from working. Crizotinib may be an effective treatment for patients with non-small cell lung cancer and an ALK fusion mutation.
