Chemotherapy Followed by Radiation Therapy in Treating Younger Patients With Newly Diagnosed Localized Central Nervous System Germ Cell Tumors

Drugs used as chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, etoposide, and ifosfamide work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. This phase II trial studies how well chemotherapy and radiation therapy work in treating younger patients with newly diagnosed central nervous system ger...

Prevention of Arrhythmia Device Infection Trial (PADIT)

The goal of the study is to compare whether a center-wide policy of incremental antibiotic therapy will reduce infection compared to a policy of conventional antibiotic prophylaxis in high-risk patients undergoing arrhythmia device procedures. All antibiotics used are approved for use and readily available.

A Study of the Effects of Fesoterodine in Men at High Risk for Overactive Bladder/Detrusor Overactivity Post Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy

The investigators will assess the incidence of Overactive Bladder/Detrusor Overactivity (OAB/DO) post-operatively in patients post robotic assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) and to investigate whether fesoterodine will alter the incidence of OAB/DO in these patients. Additionally, the correlation between OAB symptoms and urodynamic DO will be analyzed.

A Long Term Extension Study of WA19926 of RoActemra/Actemra (Tocilizumab) in Patients With Early Moderate to Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis

This open-label, single arm, multicenter long-term extension study of WA19926 wi ll evaluate the safety and efficacy of RoActemra/Actemra (tocilizumab) in patien ts with early moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis who have completed the 104 -week WA19926 core study. Eligible patients will receive RoActemra/Actemra 8 mg/ kg intravenously every 4 weeks for up to 104 weeks.

The Effectiveness of Probiotics for the Therapy of Acute Pharyngotonsillitis in Adult Patients

The addition of probiotics to the routine therapy of Acute Pharyngotonsillitis in adult patients may shorten the duration, and reduce the severity of the disease.

Clinical Outcomes of Knee Replacement

The objective of this study is to document the demographic and clinical characteristics and the long-term clinical outcomes of patients who require a total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The hypothesis is that MAKO® robot assisted surgery replacing one or two compartments of the knee joint has 10 year implant survival and clinical outcomes that are equivalent to other knee replacement systems.

Bortezomib Based Consolidation in Multiple Myeloma Patients Completing Stem Cell Transplant

This randomized phase II trial studies how well giving bortezomib with or without combination chemotherapy works as consolidation therapy in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who have completed stem cell transplant. Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

A Virtual Support Pilot Program for Weight Loss Surgery Patients

Obesity affects over one-third of the US population, and is associated with serious medical problems like diabetes and heart disease. Weight loss surgery is the most effective treatment for obesity, but some weight loss surgery patients lose less weight than others, and some patients regain the weight they lost. Researchers have found that support groups help post-surgical patients lose more weight, but long-term support programs often aren't available or are difficult for pati...

Dose-finding and Safety of 2 Intradermal MEN-ACYW135-conjugate Vaccines

Invasive meningococcal disease is a worldwide problem with serious repercussions for those affected. Vaccination is recognized as the best way to combat it. The cost of vaccination is prohibitive in many low-resource settings at home and abroad. By harnessing the special immunologic properties of the skin, a dose reduction may be achieved by intradermal administration of the vaccine. The cost savings associated with dose reduction will increase availability of the vaccine.
