Cancer Care in the National Cancer Institute Center for Cancer Research

Summary

This study provides cancer care through the National Cancer Institute's Medical Oncology Branch (MOB) to patients who are not enrolled in an active treatment research protocol. Patients receive standard treatments only; no investigational therapies are provided on this protocol.

Patients 18 years of age and older may be eligible for this protocol. Candidates are patients for whom an NCI investigator decides that the interests of the patient and the NCI are best served by the patient's enrollment in this protocol to receive care and follow-up within the MOB. This includes patients in the following categories:

- Patients previously enrolled in NCI trials whose participation in this protocol may continue to provide researchers important scientific information

- Patients who will be eligible for a research protocol within the foreseeable future

- Patients whose medical welfare will be seriously compromised by referral back to the community, such as patients with a rare or complex disease for which community resources are inadequate or unavailable

- Terminally ill patients who have received most of their specialized medical care at the Clinical Center and for whom humanitarian considerations dictate that they continue to receive their medical care at NIH after going off study for the remaining weeks or months of life

- Patients with cancer or HIV, or people at risk for cancer or HIV for whom cancer treatments at the NCI are requested through the MOB consult service

- Patients who are participating in a non-treatment NCI research protocol and require standard-of-care therapy

- Patients with cancer or HIV or people at risk for cancer for whom cancer treatment or management at the NCI would add significant value to the institute's cancer training program

Participants receive standard medical care, including periodic routine laboratory tests, diagnostic x-rays, and nuclear medicine scans to monitor the course of illness and the effects of any treatment.

Description

Background:

It may be in the interest of the Center for Cancer Research (CCR) to treat and/or follow certain subjects who are not currently enrolled on an active research protocol.

Objective:

The objective of this protocol is to add value to the medical or surgical oncology training programs by providing treatment and medical follow-up for NCI patients and other Institute consult patients not currently enrolled on an active research protocol.

Eligibility:

It is in the best interests of the subject and the CCR for the subject to receive treatment at the NCI, NIH Intramural Research Program.

Design:

No investigational therapies will be administered on this study. This protocol is not a platform to perform pilot studies of off-label uses for standard agents.

This protocol will provide the administrative vehicle to provide cancer care for patients in the intramural research program.

Medical/surgical/radiotherapeutic care, treatment and follow-up is provided for subjects who are not currently enrolled on an active protocol.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.

Cancers or tumors of the MAXILLA or MANDIBLE unspecified. For neoplasms of the maxilla, MAXILLARY NEOPLASMS is available and of the mandible, MANDIBULAR NEOPLASMS is available.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.

Neoplasms located in the vasculature system, such as ARTERIES and VEINS. They are differentiated from neoplasms of vascular tissue (NEOPLASMS, VASCULAR TISSUE), such as ANGIOFIBROMA or HEMANGIOMA.

Neoplasms composed of cells from the deepest layer of the epidermis. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in the stratum basale.
