Summary

Patients enrolled in this study will not receive investigational therapy. Any treatments rendered will be standard and based on appropriate medical care. Should a patient become eligible for an experimental therapy protocol, the normal process of enrollment and informed consent will be followed.

Description

This protocol will enable the Pediatric Branch to follow selected children with cancer or HIV infection who are not immediately eligible for protocol enrollment but who are likely, within the next year, to become candidates for protocol entry. It will also enable the Pediatric Branch to follow children who present with either clinical findings that constitute important educational experiences for the NCI trainees or who have unique or unusual medical problems that are likely to benefit from the research expertise of the NCI.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Species of the genus LENTIVIRUS, subgenus primate immunodeficiency viruses (IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUSES, PRIMATE), that induces acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in monkeys and apes (SAIDS). The genetic organization of SIV is virtually identical to HIV.

An acquired defect of cellular immunity associated with infection by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), a CD4-positive T-lymphocyte count under 200 cells/microliter or less than 14% of total lymphocytes, and increased susceptibility to opportunistic infections and malignant neoplasms. Clinical manifestations also include emaciation (wasting) and dementia. These elements reflect criteria for AIDS as defined by the CDC in 1993.

Acquired defect of cellular immunity that occurs naturally in macaques infected with SRV serotypes, experimentally in monkeys inoculated with SRV or MASON-PFIZER MONKEY VIRUS; (MPMV), or in monkeys infected with SIMIAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS.

Acquired defect of cellular immunity that occurs in mice infected with mouse leukemia viruses (MuLV). The syndrome shows striking similarities with human AIDS and is characterized by lymphadenopathy, profound immunosuppression, enhanced susceptibility to opportunistic infections, and B-cell lymphomas.

Acquired defect of cellular immunity that occurs in cats infected with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and in some cats infected with feline leukemia virus (FeLV).
