To effectively treat prostate cancer, doctors need an accurate view (via X-rays) of the prostate gland during radiation therapy. To help improve this view, doctors may insert gold markers called fiducials into the prostate by placing hollow gold needles through the rectum and moving a fiducial through each needle. The purpose of the study is to determine whether an MRI scan can help doctors improve their placement of these needles. Fifteen men will participate in this study....
This study's goal is to find out if the kind of side effects people experience from radiation is different depending on the schedule of their radiation treatment. Patients will be randomly assigned to either the 3 Fraction or 5 Fraction schedule of radiation. After patients complete radiation treatment, they will follow up with their radiation oncologist.
ASTRO-APS is a prospective, randomized, open-label blinded endpoint pilot study among patients with a clinical diagnosis of the AntiPhospholipid Syndrome and are already taking an anticoagulant for the secondary prevention of thrombosis (blood clots). Subjects will be randomized to receive either warfarin (target INR range 2-3) or apixaban 2.5mg twice daily. Patients will follow up with the study team for 13 months. 2 in-clinic follow-up visits will be performed as well as 4 t...
The primary efficacy objective was to determine and compare stool composition (stool soap and non-soap fatty acids, total fatty acids, minerals, and other stool constituents) among the feeding groups.
Scoliosis is a complex 3-dimensional deformity of the spine. It may occur at any time throughout growth and development and is typically detected through x-ray imaging. Although effective at visualizing a curve, x-ray imaging is costly and may expose children to potentially harmful ionizing radiation. This is a 30 patient study to evaluate the reliability of ultrasound, an imaging technique without radiation, to effectively measure scoliosis deformities compared to the gold-sta...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the influence different types of exercise, pain mechanisms, and biopsychosocial contributions on how people with and without fibromyalgia report pain. Exercise will be performed with the arm at a submaximal intensity. Participants will undergo a variety of pain assessments, including clinical questionnaires and pain perception. This study will improve our understanding of how people with and without fibromyalgia respond to different r...
Goldimplantation around arthritic joints is a very popular treatment - but the effect has never been controlled.
The goal of this clinical research study is to find a safe dose of radiation that can be given to patients with brainstem glioma who have already received radiation therapy. You will receive photon radiation therapy. This type of radiation is similar to the radiation you have already had. Conformal radiotherapy or intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) will be used to try to treat the tumor while affecting as little of the surrounding normal tissue as possible.
RATIONALE: Stereotactic radiation therapy can send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether stereotactic radiation therapy is more effective with or without whole-brain radiation therapy in treating patients with brain metastases. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying stereotactic radiation therapy and whole-brain radiation therapy to see how we...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays and other types of radiation to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether a single dose of radiation therapy is more effective than implant radiation therapy for 5 days in treating patients with recurrent breast cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying implant radiation therapy to see how well it works compared with radiation therapy during surgery in treating patients with recurrent breast cancer.
The purpose of this study is to reduce the risk of radiation related side effects and complications by treating with radiation (protons or photons) that exposes less of normal organs to low dose radiation.
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of stereotactic body radiation therapy while using intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) planning to help avoid radiation to normal tissue in patients with prostate cancer. Stereotactic body radiation therapy is a specialized radiation therapy that sends x-rays directly to the tumor using small, high doses of radiation over several days and may cause less damage to normal tissue. This treatment schedule allows ...
The purpose of this study is to develop blood tests and urine tests that can tell doctors how much radiation a person has been exposed to. Doctors know how much radiation patients are exposed to in certain medical situations. An example of this would be radiation treatment for cancer. Radiation treatment machines are programmed to give exact doses of radiation.
There are two types of external radiation treatments (proton beam and photon beam). As part of the participant's treatment, they will receive radiation to the entire central nervous system (CNS); this is known as craniospinal irradiation (CSI). In the past, photon radiation therapy has been used for CSI. In this study we will be examining the effects of proton beam radiation therapy. Studies have suggested that this kind of radiation can cause less damage to normal tissue th...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells and may be an effective treatment for patients with glioma. Stereotactic radiation therapy may be able to deliver x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. It is not yet known if standard radiation therapy is more effective when followed by stereotactic radiation therapy. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of standard radiation therapy with ...
RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well conformal radiation therapy works in treating patients with metastatic cancer outside the brain.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerance of Turmipure Gold™ product during a chronic consumption of 5 weeks in healthy subjects. The hypothesis of this study is that there are no alterations of the gastrointestinal tolerance, of the haematological and biochemical profiles due to Turmipure Gold™ consumption compared to placebo.
This research study is evaluating a therapy called proton beam radiation therapy (PBRT) as a possible treatment for neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma most commonly occurs in and around the adrenal glands, which are located at the top of the kidneys. However, it can also occur in other areas where groups of nerve cells exist, such as other areas of the abdomen, neck and near the spine. Conventional radiation therapy with photons is used as standard treatment for many patients ...
This study aims to measure the radiation safety climate in the hybrid angiography suite using self-assessment and to investigate the relationship of radiation safety climate with their self-reported safety behaviors. The hypothesis is that a radiation safety climate does exist and can be measured using self-assessment. Additionally, it is expected that the radiation safety climate positively influences radiation safety behaviors.
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Radiation therapy may be effective in treating malignant spinal cord compression in patients who have received previous radiation therapy to the spine. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying radiation therapy in treating patients with malignant spinal cord compression.
The objective of the study is to determine the relative contributions of four established predictors of hyperandrogenism (luteinizing hormone [LH] secretion, ovarian response to recombinant human chorionic gonadotropin [r-hCG] administration, adrenal response to adrenocorticotropic hormone [ACTH] administration, and hyperinsulinemia) in older vs. young women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) in a cross-sectional, physiological study. The investigators hypothesize that hyper...
