Medication management practices for schizophrenia often are not guideline-concordant and place patients at risk for adverse outcomes. This project tests a new strategy to standard implementation for VHA Schizophrenia Guidelines.

Imatinib Mesylate in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Persistent Uterine Cancer

This phase II clinical trial studies the side effects and how well imatinib mesylate works in treating patients with uterine cancer that has failed to respond to initial chemotherapy or has re-grown after therapy. Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more cancer cells. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving combination chemotherapy works in treating patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia.

Telepsychology-Service Delivery for Depressed Elderly Veterans

The purpose of this study is to see whether therapy for elderly adults with major depression can be delivered effectively using videoconferencing technology ("telepsychology"), which allows a therapist and patient who are not in the same room as one another to communicate. We are interested in learning if this form of mental health service delivery is an acceptable alternative to traditional face-to-face therapy delivered with the therapist in the same room as the patient.

High-Dose Chemotherapy With or Without Total-Body Irradiation Followed by Autologous Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Hematologic Cancer or Solid Tumors

This pilot trial studies different high-dose chemotherapy regimens with or without total-body irradiation (TBI) to compare how well they work when given before autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) in treating patients with hematologic cancer or solid tumors. Giving high-dose chemotherapy with or without TBI before ASCT stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. After treatment, stem cells are collected from the patient's blood or bone mar...

LCI Apheresis to Obtain Plasma or White Blood Cells

This study will collect blood plasma and white blood cells from individuals using a procedure called apheresis. Apheresis is a method of collecting larger quantities of certain blood components than can safely be collected through a simple blood draw or blood donation process. The blood components will be used in laboratory research studies to investigate aspects of infectious and immunologic allergic diseases. Patients 7 years of age and older who are currently enrolled in a...

A Model for Genetic Susceptibility: Melanoma

The goal of this study is to find out if some people are more likely to get melanoma, a form of skin cancer, than others are. To do this we will compare people who have had more than one melanoma to people who have had only one melanoma and to people who are similar but who have not developed melanoma. People respond to the environment in different ways. Some may be born with genes that make them more likely to get this type of skin cancer. Each person has many ways to repair...
