This study will test whether a game-based exercise plan can help increase the level of physical activity in childhood cancer survivors. The game-based exercise plan will involve participation by both a childhood cancer survivor and his/her parent or caregiver. This study will also look at whether the game-based exercise plan improves childhood cancer survivors' quality of life.

The SCCSS is designed to investigate which long-term effects childhood cancer and its treatment have on survivors, and includes those who were under 21 when they were diagnosed. The SCCSS ...
This feasibility study will determine the psychometric adequacy of a newly developed instrument - Needs Assessment Survey of Adult Childhood Cancer Survivors. Additionally the study will ...
The purpose of this research study is to try and identify markers in childhood cancer survivors to help predict if they will develop late effects from their cancer treatment.

As the number of pediatric cancer survivors increases, so does our need to understand behavioral late effects. Prior studies show mixed results, with some noting increased emotional distress and psych...
An increase in survival rates of childhood cancer is associated with long-term health issues in survivors.
Hearing loss is a prevalent late effect among cancer survivors. Despite the significant social costs, there is a noted delay in seeking care and to the authors' knowledge there are limited data regard...

Data on hypothalamic-pituitary (HP) disorders in systematically evaluated childhood cancer survivors are limited.
Persons who experienced traumatic events during childhood.
Persons who have experienced prolonged survival with or the following neoplastic disease and the impact of the disease on the individual, family members, and significant others.
Rare congenital metabolism disorders of the urea cycle. The disorders are due to mutations that result in complete (neonatal onset) or partial (childhood or adult onset) inactivity of an enzyme, involved in the urea cycle. Neonatal onset results in clinical features that include irritability, vomiting, lethargy, seizures, NEONATAL HYPOTONIA; RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS; HYPERAMMONEMIA; coma, and death. Survivors of the neonatal onset and childhood/adult onset disorders share common risks for ENCEPHALOPATHIES, METABOLIC, INBORN; and RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS due to HYPERAMMONEMIA.
A common neoplasm of early childhood arising from neural crest cells in the sympathetic nervous system, and characterized by diverse clinical behavior, ranging from spontaneous remission to rapid metastatic progression and death. This tumor is the most common intraabdominal malignancy of childhood, but it may also arise from thorax, neck, or rarely occur in the central nervous system. Histologic features include uniform round cells with hyperchromatic nuclei arranged in nests and separated by fibrovascular septa. Neuroblastomas may be associated with the opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp2099-2101; Curr Opin Oncol 1998 Jan;10(1):43-51)
A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.

Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
