Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease characterized by swelling and inflammation of the joints. In RA, the immune system attacks a person's own cells inside joints, eventually leading to joint damage and disability. This study will determine if oral bovine type II collagen (bovine CII) will lead to decreased joint inflammation in RA patients.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. Bone marrow transplantation can replace immune cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to study the effectiveness of chemotherapy compared with or without bone marrow transplantation in treating patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of chemotherapy plus peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating women who have metastatic breast cancer.
Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of SU5416 in treating patients who have metastatic or locally recurrent colorectal cancer. SU5416 may stop the growth of colorectal cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of PNU-93914 in treating patients who have locally advanced or metastatic cancer of the esophagus.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of pyroxamide in treating patients who have advanced cancer.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. It is not yet known which regimen of combination chemotherapy plus radiation therapy with or without surgery is more effective in treating bladder cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to study the effectiveness of two combination chemotherapy regimens and radiation therapy with or with...
This phase II trial is studying how well giving erlotinib together with celecoxib works in treating patients with recurrent stage IIIB or stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. Erlotinib and celecoxib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth. Celecoxib may slow the growth of a tumor by stopping blood flow to the tumor. Combining erlotinib with celecoxib may kill more tumor cells. .
RATIONALE: Goserelin blocks hormone production in the ovaries. It is not yet known whether ovarian suppression using goserelin will prevent ovarian failure (early menopause) in women receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying how well giving goserelin together with chemotherapy works compared with chemotherapy alone in preventing early menopause in women with stage I, stage II, or stage IIIA breast cancer.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as amonafide, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of amonafide in treating women who have metastatic breast cancer that has progressed after previous chemotherapy.
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of two approved drugs in the treatment of pain following dental surgery.
RATIONALE: PKC412 may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. It may also increase the effectiveness of daunorubicin and cytarabine by making cancer cells more sensitive to the drugs. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as daunorubicin and cytarabine, work in different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining PKC412 with chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studyin...
This phase I trial is studying the side effects, best way to give, and best dose of CCI-779 and EKB-569 in treating patients with advanced solid tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as CCI-779, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. EKB-569 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for their growth. Giving CCI-779 together with EKB-569 may kill more tumor cells.
This trial, evaluating the long-term safety and tolerability of brivaracetam will provide subjects suffering from epilepsy, who may have benefited from brivaracetam as adjunctive treatment, the opportunity to receive open label brivaracetam treatment.
The purpose of this study is to find out how safe and effective the combination of Mylotarg in combination with cytarabine is in treating patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and advanced Myelodysplastic Syndrome over the age of 60 years.
Pancreatic cancer is a devastating disease. Previous research shows a correlation between a specific oncogene change (ras-mutation) and enhanced sensitivity to two chemotherapy drugs combined: gemcitabine and etoposide. This Phase II trial will evaluate this drug combination for locally advanced and metastatic pancreatic cancer.
This is an open-label, dose-escalation study to determine the tolerability, safety profile, and antitumor activity of SGN-40 in patients with CLL. All patients will receive dose escalation during the first two weeks regardless of cohort designation.
This study will examine the roles of diet, lifestyle, genes, and their possible interactions in the cause of Parkinson's disease, using information from the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study. The NIH-AARP study was established in 1995 to examine the roles of diet and lifestyle in cancer. It included 567,169 AARP members 50 or older from California, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Louisiana, and the Atlanta and Detroit metropolitan areas. In 1995, participants co...
This study will use positron emission tomography (PET) to measure a brain protein called peripheral benzodiazepine receptor (PBR) in patients with multiple sclerosis. PBR is created during the inflammation process, and brain inflammation is a key feature of multiple sclerosis (MS). PBR usually affects one type of brain cell, but it can also cause damage to surrounding areas of the brain in patients with MS. PET studies of PBRs and brain inflammation may help elucidate the role...
This protocol will collect blood samples and medical information from patients who have had a bone marrow transplant using cells from an unrelated donor identified through the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP). The NMDP has two programs in which patients can participate: the Research Database Program and the Research Sample Repository. Patients who have received a bone marrow transplant at the NIH or other institution from an unrelated donor affiliated with the NMDP may be...
This study will evaluate the combination of bevacizumab and erlotinib in elderly patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer.
Patients are currently advised to refrain from driving motor vehicles or using public transportation unescorted for a 24 hour period if they undergo any minor ambulatory surgical procedure with monitored anesthesia care (MAC).However, recently introduced short-acting anesthetics may facilitate rapid recovery and an early return to normal daily activities. The proposed study will compare newer short-acting anesthetic agents (propofol, benzodiazepine, opioid) utilized in MAC, to...
This randomized phase III trial is studying giving tamoxifen citrate or letrozole together with bevacizumab to see how well it works compared with tamoxifen citrate or letrozole alone in treating women with stage III or stage IV breast cancer. Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using tamoxifen* or letrozole may fight breast cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor gr...
Objective: To determine a minimally effective initial local anesthetic bolus required to provide satisfactory analgesia using continuous brachial plexus infusion following arthroscopic shoulder surgery using a double-blind, randomized, study comparing 3 initial doses.
The purpose of this Study is to assess how subjects will use the investigational product in an uncontrolled, naturalistic environment.
