Study of Patients With Cancer or Precancerous Conditions

2014-07-24 14:22:04 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Following the course of disease in patients with cancer or precancerous conditions who are receiving standard care may help the study of cancer in the future.

PURPOSE: This natural history study is looking at the course of disease in patients with cancer or precancerous conditions.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- To follow and evaluate patients, longitudinally with cancer or precancerous conditions referred to the NIH Clinical Center Pediatric Oncology Branch who present with disease manifestations that lend themselves to clinical evaluation and are of unique scientific importance.

- To allow, when clinically indicated, patients to receive standard care therapies.

OUTLINE: Patients are evaluated at least every 3-6 months for up to 3 years and receive standard care as prescribed. Demographic information, histology, pathologic findings, and laboratory and imaging parameters are collected during that time. Blood, urine, or tumor specimens may be collected. Patients undergo periodic diagnostic x-rays and/or nuclear medicine scans.

Previous medical care data will be obtained and entered into a database.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 250 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical methods of either relieving pain caused by a particular condition or removing the sensation of pain during a surgery or other medical procedure.

The act of regarding attentively and studying facts and occurrences, gathering data through analyzing, measuring, and drawing conclusions, with the purpose of applying the observed information to theoretical assumptions. Observation as a scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge began in classical antiquity; in modern science and medicine its greatest application is facilitated by modern technology. Observation is one of the components of the research process.

A method of providing future reproductive opportunities before a medical treatment with known risk of loss of fertility. Typically reproductive organs or tissues (e.g., sperm, egg, embryos and ovarian or testicular tissues) are cryopreserved for future use before the medical treatment (e.g., chemotherapy, radiation) begins.

The analysis of a chemical substance by inserting a sample into a carrier stream of reagent using a sample injection valve that propels the sample downstream where mixing occurs in a coiled tube, then passes into a flow-through detector and a recorder or other data handling device.
