Vemurafenib and White Blood Cell Therapy for Advanced Melanoma

Background: - One possible treatment for advanced melanoma involves collecting white blood cells from the person with cancer and growing them in a laboratory. The cells can then be given back to the donor. This study will use this white blood cell treatment with the cancer treatment drug vemurafenib. Vemurafenib targets melanoma cells that have a mutation in the B-raf gene, and may be able to make them shrink. Objectives: - To see if vemurafenib and white blood c...

To evaluate the effect on phosphatemia in hemodialysis patients of replacing the meat or fish included in two meals a week with an amount of egg white containing the same quantity of proteins.


White Blood Cells With Anti-EGFR-III for Malignant Gliomas

Background: - A new cancer treatment involves collecting white blood cells from a patient, modifying them to act against the cancer, and returning them to the body. The white blood cells may then be able to identify and destroy the cancer cells. Some kinds of advanced gliomas contain a protein called EGFR, which is not present in normal tissues. Doctors want to modify white blood cells to have an anti-EGFR effect, and use them to treat the glioma. Objectives: - T...

Immunotherapy Using Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes for Patients With Metastatic Ocular Melanoma

Background: - The NCI Surgery Branch has developed an experimental therapy that involves taking white blood cells from patients' tumors, growing them in the laboratory in large numbers, and then giving the cells back to the patient. These cells are called Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes, or TIL and we have given this type of treatment to over 200 patients with melanoma. This study will use chemotherapy to prepare the immune system before this white blood cell treatment. A...

Measuring Auto-fluorescence of White Corpuscles for the Early Diagnosis and the Monitoring of Pneumonia in ICU

The diagnosis of pneumonia is challenging in Intensive Care Unit. The auto-fluorescence of white corpuscles is altered during pneumonia. In presence of bacterial growth on lung samples, the measure of autofluorescence of white corpuscles could help the clinicians to discriminate bacterial colonization from acute infection.

Cytapheresis of Volunteer Donors

Background: - National Institute on Aging researchers are looking at studies that require large numbers of white blood cells for lab use. Standard blood samples do not provide enough white blood cells for these studies. Researchers want to use cytapheresis to collect white blood cells from volunteer donors. This procedure can collect larger amounts of white blood cells and reduce the amount of fluid and other cells that are lost. Objectives: - To use cytapheresis...

CAR T Cell Receptor Immunotherapy Targeting VEGFR2 for Patients With Metastatic Cancer

Background: The NCI Surgery Branch has developed an experimental therapy for treating patients metastatic cancer that involves taking white blood cells from the patient, growing them in the laboratory in large numbers, genetically modifying these specific cells with a type of virus (retrovirus) to attack only the tumor cells, and then giving the cells back to the patient. This type of therapy is called gene transfer. In this protocol, we are modifying the patient s whi...

Immunotherapy Using 41BB Selected Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes for Patients With Metastatic Melanoma

Background: The NCI Surgery Branch has developed an experimental therapy that involves taking white blood cells from patients' tumors, growing them in the laboratory in large numbers, and then giving the cells back to the patient. These cells are called Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes, or TIL and we have given this type of treatment to over 100 patients. In this study, we are selecting a specific subset of white blood cells from the tumor that we think are the most effect...

Gastric Emptying of Rice With Different Starch Properties

Glycemic carbohydrates are associated with metabolic disturbances, such as type II diabetes, due to rapid digestion of starch into glucose. The specific properties of starch within these foods has been studied for the purpose of slowing their digestion rate and improving related physiological outcomes, such as gastric emptying rate. The current study investigated the relationship among starch digestion, gastric emptying rate and satiety in white and brown rice.

Pharmacological Recruitment of Endogenous Neural Precursors to Promote Pediatric White Matter Repair: Establishing Correlations Between Visual Outcomes, Saccadic Function and MEG Oscillations in Children With Demyelinating Disorders in Comparison to Healt

The neural circuits in our brains require a layer of insulation in order to transmit signals in a rapid and efficient fashion. This insulation is called White Matter and is comprised of a specific type of brain cell called an oligodendrocytes. Damage to brain white matter occurs following injury and in disorders like Multiple Sclerosis and results in sensory, motor, and cognitive problems. Currently there are no effective medical therapies to promote brain repair and reduce dis...

Mycobacterial and Opportunistic Infections in HIV-Negative Thai and Taiwanese Patients Associated With Autoantibodies to Interferon-gamma

Opportunistic infections are caused by bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi or viruses that do not normally cause infections in people with healthy immune systems. Some of these infections can cause public health concerns, especially in areas with limited access to treatment. People who acquire opportunistic infections usually have diseases that affect their immune systems, such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), or do not have enough white blood cells to fight the infection. Howe...

White Matter Fiber Tracking and Assessment of White Matter Integrity in the Cervical Spinal Cord

White matter fiber tracking may provide a novel tool to assess the integrity of injured motor tracts in the cervical spine. It provides information about fiber directions which is not given by conventional MRI. White matter fiber tracking in the brain is used at several institutions, including our own medical college, for presurgical planning of tumor excision. We believe that the technical and clinical experience gained for the brain can be applied to fiber tracking in the cer...

T Cell Receptor Immunotherapy Targeting HPV-16 E6 for HPV-Associated Cancers

Background: The NCI Surgery Branch has developed an experimental therapy for treating patients with cancer that involves taking white blood cells from the patient, growing them in the laboratory in large numbers, genetically modifying these specific cells with a type of virus (retrovirus) to attack only the tumor cells, and then giving the cells back to the patient. This type of therapy is called gene transfer. Researchers want to test this on human papilloma virus (HPV)...

White Button Mushroom Extract in Treating Patients With Recurrent Prostate Cancer After Local Therapy

RATIONALE: White button mushroom extract may stop or delay the development of recurrent prostate cancer. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of white button mushroom extract in treating patients with recurrent prostate cancer after local therapy.

Anti-CD19 White Blood Cells for Children and Young Adults With B Cell Leukemia or Lymphoma

Background: - Although progress has been made in treating children with B-cell cancers such as leukemia or lymphoma, many children do not respond to the standard treatments. One possible treatment involves collecting white blood cells called T cells from the person with cancer and modifying the cells to attack the B-cell cancer. The cells can then be given back to the participant. This study will use T cells that have been modified to attack the CD19 protein, which is fo...

Regulation of the Release of Inflammatory Mediators From Blood Leukocytes

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD for short) involves inflammation inside the air passages of the lungs. This inflammation might be partly responsible for the shortness of breath, cough and susceptibility to chest infections that form part of COPD. Inflammation is caused, in part, by white blood cells that are attracted from the blood into the air passages. Once inside the air passages, the white blood cells may change (or ‘differentiate’) and release substances t...

VEGF as a Prognostic Factor for White Matter Damage in Preterm Infants

We hypothesize that misexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in the CSF of preterm infants can be used as a biomarker to predict the risk for developming white matter damage.
