Lactobacillus Plantarum in Preventing Acute Graft Versus Host Disease in Children Undergoing Donor Stem Cell Transplant

Multiple Cancer Types

This randomized phase III trial studies how well Lactobacillus plantarum works in preventing acute graft versus host disease in children undergoing donor stem cell transplant. Lactobacillus plantarum may help prevent the development of gastrointestinal graft versus host disease in children, adolescents, and young adults undergoing donor stem cell transplant.

A Study of the Safety and Effectiveness of Apixaban in Preventing Blood Clots in Children With Leukemia Who Have a Central Venous Catheter and Are Treated With Asparaginase

Multiple Cancer Types

The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of a blood thinning drug called Apixaban versus no administration of a blood thinning drug, in preventing blood clots in children with leukemia or lymphoma. Patients must be receiving chemotherapy, including asparaginase, and have a central line (a catheter inserted for administration of medications and blood sampling)

Neuroblastoma Maintenance Therapy Trial

Multiple Cancer Types

Difluoromethylornithine (DFMO) will be used in an open label, single agent, multicenter, study for patients with neuroblastoma in remission. In this study subjects will receive 730 Days of oral difluoromethylornithine (DFMO) at a dose of 750 mg / m2 ± 250 mg / m2 BID (strata 1, 2, 3, and 4) OR 2500 mg / m2 BID (stratum 1B) on each day of study. This study will focus on the use of DFMO in high risk neuroblastoma patients that are in remission as a strategy to prevent recurrence.

Ruxolitinib in Preventing Breast Cancer in Patients with High Risk and Precancerous Breast Lesions

Breast

This phase II trial studies how well ruxolitinib before surgery works in preventing breast cancer in patients with high risk and precancerous breast conditions. Ruxolitinib may changes the breast cell when administered to participants with precancerous breast conditions. Ruxolitinib may stop the growth of cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Observation of Low-Dose Skin Electron Therapy in Patients with Refractory or Relapsed Stage IB-IIIA Mycosis Fungoides

Lymphoma

This trial collects data on response to low-dose skin electron therapy in patients with stage IB-IIIA mycosis fungoides that does not respond to treatment (refractory) or has come back (relapsed). Collecting data on patient's response to therapy, both in terms of changes in the skin and in terms of quality of life following treatment, may help doctors better predict response to therapy.

Screening Methods for Early Diagnosis of Lung Cancer in Current or Former Smokers

Multiple Cancer Types

This trial studies methods of detecting lung cancer at an earlier stage in current or former smokers with a special type of computed tomography (CT) scan and by testing genes and proteins in biospecimens (blood, urine, sputum, and tissue samples) collected at the time of bronchoscopy (examination of the airway). Analyzing these methods may provide an early detection of lung cancer in current or former smokers when it is more amenable to a cure.

Web-Based Physical Activity Intervention in Improving Long Term Health in Children and Adolescents with Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This randomized clinical phase III trial studies how well web-based physical activity intervention works in improving long term health in children and adolescents with cancer. Regular physical activity after receiving treatment for cancer may help to maintain a healthy weight and improve energy levels and overall health.

Clinical Information and Biospecimen Collection from Patients with Recurrent or Stage IV Breast Cancer

Breast

This trial collects clinical information and tissue and blood samples from patients with breast cancer that has come back or is stage IV. Collecting clinical information and biospecimen samples to create a registry may help doctors better understand the mechanism of tumor spread and determine why people respond differently to specific cancer treatments.

Biospecimen Analysis in Determining Effects of Chemotherapy on Fertility in Osteosarcoma Survivors

Multiple Cancer Types

This research trial studies saliva, semen, and blood samples to determine effects of chemotherapy on fertility in osteosarcoma survivors. Study biospecimen samples from osteosarcoma survivors in the laboratory may help doctors learn whether chemotherapy causes fertility problems and to learn more about the long term effects.

Late Effects after Treatment in Patients with Previously Diagnosed High-Risk Neuroblastoma

Multiple Cancer Types

This research trial studies late effects after treatment in patients with previously diagnosed high-risk neuroblastoma. Studying late effects after treatment may help to decide which treatments for high-risk neuroblastoma are better tolerated with less side effects over time.
