Predicting Development of Diabetes Mellitus in Patients Undergoing Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplant

Hematologic

This clinical trial studies the physiology and immunology of new-onset post-transplant diabetes mellitus in patients undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Oral glucose tolerance testing (OGTT), euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamps, and immune assays will be used to define the mechanisms associated with abnormal glucose homeostasis following stem cell transplantation. Information from this clinical trial could be used to develop standardized screening procedures or to develop optimal treatment strategies for patients developing post-transplant diabetes mellitus.

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

Liver

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.

Long-Term Follow-Up of Patients Who Have Participated in Children's Oncology Group Studies

Pediatrics

This clinical trial keeps track of and collects follow-up information from patients who are currently enrolled on or have participated in a Children's Oncology Group study. Developing a way to keep track of patients who have participated in Children's Oncology Group studies may allow doctors learn more about the long-term effects of cancer treatment and help them reduce problems related to treatment and improve patient quality of life.

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.

Collecting and Storing Residual Tissue, Blood, and Body Fluids in Patients with Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This research trial collects and stores tissue, blood, and body fluids in patients with cancer. Collecting and storing samples of tissue, blood, and body fluids from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.

Skin / Soft Tissue Elasticity in Head and Neck Cancer Survivors with Lymphedema and Fibrosis

Head/Neck

This research trial studies skin / soft tissue elasticity in head and neck cancer survivors with lymphedema and fibrosis. Lymphedema and fibrosis is a common effect of head and neck cancer which may lead to skin tightness, pain, and body image issues. Early detection of lymphedema and fibrosis may help reduce serious functional loss of the neck. Shear wave elastography is a technique that provides a quantitative measure of stiffness using a push pulse to generate shear waves within the tissues. Conventional imaging techniques are then used to monitor the shear waves generated through the tissue to calculate the shear wave speed. Shear wave elastography may help obtain an early and accurate measurement of tissue elasticity in head and neck cancer survivors.

Neuropsychological and Behavioral Testing in Younger Patients with Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This research trial studies neuropsychological (learning, remembering or thinking) and behavioral testing in younger patients with cancer. Collecting information over time from a series of tests may help doctors develop effective tests to measure neuropsychological and behavioral function of patients with cancer.
