Genomic Sequencing in Determining Treatment in Patients With Metastatic Cancer or Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

This pilot clinical trial studies patients' genomic sequencing in determining specific treatments, also called Precision Medicine, in patients with cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic) and/or cannot be removed by surgery. Examining the genetic code of a patient's tumor, a mutation (a change in the deoxyribonucleic acid [DNA] sequence of a cell or gene) may be identified and matched with available treatment that targets the mutated gene or an alternativ...

Blood Biomarkers in Suicidal Behaviour

Suicidal behavior (SB) is a major public health problem in France, with more than 10,000 suicides and 220,000 suicide attempts per year. According to the commonly accepted model for understanding suicidal behavior, individuals who carry a suicidal act when subjected to stress factors (environmental stress, depression, substance ...) are those which have a specific vulnerability. These vulnerabilities can be considered as clinical parameters (propensity to despair, aggre...

Exposure, Relaxation, & Rescripting Therapy-Child

Untreated trauma-related nightmares and sleep-related disorders are associated with chronic health problems, burdening both the suffering individual and the health-care system. The study implements an innovative, cost-efficient, nightmare treatment for trauma-exposed children. It is the first randomized clinical trial with children, adapting an efficacious adult therapy to a 5-session nightmare treatment for 5-17 year-olds. Trauma nightmares are a mechanism in development and...

Gene Transfer for Sickle Cell Disease

A promising approach for the treatment of genetic diseases is called gene therapy. Gene therapy is a relatively new field of medicine that uses genetic material (mostly DNA) from the patient to treat his or her own disease. In gene therapy, the investigators introduce new genetic material in order to fix or replace the patient's disease gene, with the goal of curing the disease. The procedure is similar to a bone marrow transplant, in that the patient's malfunctioning blood ste...

Procalcitonin (PCT) as a Diagnostic Marker of Bacterial Infection in the Patients Admitted for Fever and/or Inflammatory Syndrome to the Internal Medicine Department

Levels of PCT (a marker of bacterial infection) are highest during sepsis: in fact, PCT is normally produced by the C cells in the thyroid gland. PCT was initially studied by Assicot1 for distinguishing between bacterial meningitis and viral meningitis. The CALC-I gene codes for PCT. In the absence of infection, the extrathyroid mRNA expression of the CALC-I gene is repressed, and expression is restricted to neuroendocrine thyroid and pulmonary cells. Infection induces the ubiq...

Genomic Structural Variation in Cancer Susceptibility

This study will look for new types of gene changes that may be related to cancer in some patients. Some gene changes (mutations) are passed on from parents to offspring (child). Other gene changes are new and are seen for the first time in a child. They are not seen in the parent. Some of these gene changes may cause cancers in the offspring. We will look for gene changes by studying patients with cancer their parents and family members without cancer. In this study, we ...
