Growth and Development Study of Myozyme (Alglucosidase Alfa).

Pompe disease (also known as glycogen storage disease Type II) is caused by a deficiency of a critical enzyme in the body called acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA). Normally, GAA is used by the body's cells to break down glycogen (a stored form of sugar) within specialized structures called lysosomes. In patients with Pompe disease, an excessive amount of glycogen accumulates and is stored in various tissues, especially heart and skeletal muscle, which prevents their normal function....

Fludarabine, Cytarabine, Filgrastim and Idarubicin in Core Binding Factor (CBF) Leukemias

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if idarubicin can be added to the combination of fludarabine, cytarabine, and Neupogen (Filgrastim) without increasing the risk of side effects. This study will also look at whether the addition of idarubicin will increase the long-term chances of patients remaining disease free.

Exploratory Study of Natural Killer Cells in Human Skin

Natural Killer (NK) cells play a unique role during innate immune responses as they are able to recognize and eliminate, without specific sensitization, tumors, microbe-infected cells as well as allogeneic cells.In a first time, we will characterize the tissue distribution, the phenotype and the effector functions of NK cells present in the human healthy skin.

Belinostat and Isotretinoin in Treating Patients With Solid Tumors That Are Metastatic or That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of belinostat when given together with isotretinoin in treating patients with metastatic or unresectable solid tumors. Belinostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor and by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Isotretinoin may cause solid tumor cells to look more like normal cells, and to grow and spread more slowly. Giving belinostat together with isotretinoin may b...

Cidofovir in Treating HIV-Infected Patients With High-Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions of the Skin Near the Anus

RATIONALE: High-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions of the skin near the anus are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Antiviral drugs,, such as cidofovir, act against viruses and may stop these lesions from becoming cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well topical cidofovir works in treating HIV-infected patients with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions of the skin near the anus.

Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Blood Pressure Effect of an Oral Dose of Sumatriptan Alone and in Combination With MK-0974 (Telcagepant) in Migraine Patients (0974-026)

Study to understand the effects of migraine treatments on blood pressure in participants with migraine. The primary hypothesis is that the effect on semi-recumbent mean arterial pressure following the coadministration of telcagepant and sumatriptan is similar to that following administration of sumatriptan alone. That is, the true mean treatment difference (sumatriptan with telcagepant sumatriptan alone) in time-weighted mean arterial pressure for 2.5 hours following dosing is ...

Comparison Between Rituximab Treatment and General Corticotherapy Treatment in Patients With Pemphigus

Pemphigus is a severe and sometimes life-threatening disease with a mortality rate between 5 and 10 percent depending on the severity of disease and age of patients. The standard of care is high doses of corticosteroids (CS) (usually, prednisone, 1 to 1.5. mg/kg/day, which are often associated with immunosuppressive drugs i.e., azathioprine, mycophenolate mofetil, cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine, although only one randomised study has demonstrated the superiority of the combina...

Pharmacokinetic Study of Antiretroviral Drugs and Related Drugs During and After Pregnancy

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PKs) of antiretroviral (ARV) and tuberculosis (TB) medications in pregnant women and their infants. (Pharmacokinetics are the various interactions between a drug and the body.) This study will also evaluate the PKs of certain ARVs in postpartum women before and after starting hormonal contraceptives. The PKs of these drugs will be evaluated by measuring the amount of medicine present in blood and/or vaginal secreti...

Iodine I 131 Metaiodobenzylguanidine in Treating Patients With Recurrent, Progressive, or Refractory Neuroblastoma or Malignant Pheochromocytoma or Paraganglioma

RATIONALE: Radioactive drugs, such as iodine I 131 metaiodobenzylguanidine, may carry radiation directly to tumor cells and not harm normal cells. Giving iodine I 131 metaiodobenzylguanidine may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving iodine I 131 metaiodobenzylguanidine works in treating patients with recurrent, progressive, or refractory neuroblastoma or malignant pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma.

A Phase I/II Clinical Trial of Vorinostat in Combination With Erlotinib for Patients With Relapsed/Refractory Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer (0683-025)

The reason for this study will be to find the safest maximum tolerated dose of oral vorinostat in combination with erlotinib [Tarceva (TM)] that can be given to patients with lung cancer who have relapsed or failed other therapy for the disease. Once the safest maximum tolerated dose of vorinostat is determined, patients enrolled in the clinical trial will continue vorinostat and erlotinib for up to 8 months. Safety and effectiveness will also be evaluated.

Nitazoxanide Plus Ribavirin and Peginterferon for Therapy of Treatment Naive HCV Genotype 1 and HIV Coinfected Subjects

Infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV) can cause liver scarring, or cirrhosis, and this usually occurs more rapidly among people infected with both HCV and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). People infected with both HCV and HIV have poor response to the current HCV treatments. This phase II pilot study evaluated whether adding a new HCV medication improves response to the current standard HCV treatment with pegylated interferon and ribavirin in people with both HCV and HIV.

The International ITP Registry

Primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an uncommon disease characterised by a low platelet count, which may cause the patient to have a higher risk or increased duration of bleeding. Individual hospitals only encounter a small number of ITP patients each year which makes it difficult to study this disease. By creating this disease registry, we will be able to build a more complete picture of ITP, including treatment practices, through collecting information about the conditio...
