Yoga Intervention in Supporting Children with Cancer and Their Parents during Chemotherapy Infusion


This trial studies how well yoga works in supporting children with cancer and their parents during chemotherapy infusion. Pediatric cancer and its treatment is one of life’s most stressful events for children and their parents. Yoga is an ancient holistic healing science that incorporates postures, breathing, relaxation, and meditation to facilitate harmony between body, mind, and spirit. Participating in yoga exercise may improve the negative psychosocial effects in children with cancer and their parents during chemotherapy treatment.

A Computerized Program (Neuroplasticity-Based Cognitive Remediation) for the Treatment of Chemotherapy Related Cognitive Impairment in Patients with Breast, Colon, Lymphoma, or Ovarian Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This trial studies how well a computerized program called neuroplasticity-based cognitive remediation works for the treatment of chemotherapy related cognitive impairment in patients with breast, colon, lymphoma, or ovarian cancer. There are few if any treatments shown to be effective in improving thinking and functioning in patients with attention and memory problems related to cancer treatment. This may leave patients vulnerable to loss of independence and functioning, and to developing depressive symptoms. Neuroplasticity-based cognitive remediation may help to improve thinking, functioning, and depressive symptoms in patients with breast, colon, lymphoma, or ovarian cancer.

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.

Characterization of Central Pain Syndrome in Survivors of Head and Neck Cancer


This trial studies the characterization of central pain syndrome in survivors of head and neck cancer. Many head and neck cancer patients have pain after they have completed treatment. Cancer and its treatment may change how the brain manages pain. This can make treatment of post-treatment pain more challenging for health care provides. This trial is being done to better understand how the brain is responding to pain.

Covered Metal Stents versus Uncovered Metal Stents for the Treatment of Jaundice due to Pancreatic Cancer, Cholangiocarcinoma, or Other Metastatic Malignancies

Multiple Cancer Types

This trial studies how well covered metal stents versus uncovered metal stents work in treating patients with jaundice due to pancreatic cancer, cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct), or other malignancies that have spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Jaundice can make the skin and urine appear very yellow and cause itching throughout the body. Pancreatic cancer, cholangiocarcinoma, or other metastatic malignancies can cause jaundice by blocking the bile duct. The bile duct is a tube-like structure that drains the liver. To maintain an opening in the bile duct, a stent is placed. Uncovered self-expanding metal biliary stents have a bare metal scaffold that the tissue tends to grow into and thus blocks the stent from draining, while covered self-expanding metal biliary stents have a polyurethane coating that may prevent the tissue from growing into the stent and thus blocking the stent. It is not yet known whether covered or uncovered metal stents may work better in treating patients with jaundice.

Rapid On Site Evaluation of Pleural Touch Preparations in Diagnosing Malignant Pleural Effusion in Patients Undergoing Pleuroscopy


This trial studies how well rapid on site evaluation of pleural touch preparations works in diagnosing cancerous fluid in between the linings of the lungs (malignant pleural effusion) in patients undergoing a pleuroscopy. A type of laboratory testing called rapid on site evaluation of pleural touch preparations that uses pleural biopsy tissue samples collected during an already-scheduled pleuroscopy may be able to diagnose malignant pleural effusion.
