RATIONALE: Telephone counseling after radical prostatectomy may help African American prostate cancer survivors and their intimate partners cope with the problems and challenges of surgery, and may reduce distress and improve quality of life. It is not yet known which counseling and education program is more effective in helping prostate cancer survivors and their partners. PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying effective ways to help African American prosta...
RATIONALE: Studying quality of life in cancer survivors may help determine the long-term effects of breast cancer and may help improve the quality of life for future cancer survivors. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the quality of life in African-American or Caucasian female breast cancer survivors.
This clinical trial studies the attitudes, beliefs, and preferences of older stage I-III breast cancer survivors towards physical activity. Studies have shown that older African-American and women of lower socioeconomic status are more likely than their Caucasian counterparts and women of higher socioeconomic status to have functional disability at the time of a new breast cancer diagnosis. Functional disability is the inability to independently complete activities of daily liv...
This study will test the effectiveness of an 8-week group intervention for African American men who have been treated for prostate cancer. The group intervention is based on 1) the cognitive-behavioral theoretical approach to improving adjustment to cancer and 2) masculinity theory as it relates to coping strengths and preferences in men. We will test the effectiveness of this coping skills intervention for improving survivors' quality of life in 4 areas: 1) distress related t...
We propose to refine and test the feasibility and acceptability of a 4-month multi-modal lifestyle intervention in African American females with diabetes and who are breast or endometrial cancer survivors.
This is a randomized intervention study to examine the effects of the Moving Forward Guided Weigh Loss Intervention compared to a self-guided weight loss program on BMI and behavioral, biological, and psychosocial outcomes in overweight and obese African American women diagnosed with Stage I, II, or III breast cancer.
The purpose of this study is to test if sexual health interventions can reduce the incidence of STIs among African American teens (15 to 21 years old). By doing this study, we hope to help African American teens improve their condom use skills and encourage them to use condoms more frequently. If the number of STIs in this population can be decreased, the health of African American teen males will greatly improve. We also believe that sexual partners (typically African American...
The study is designed to develop and evaluate a physical activity promotion program among elderly African Americans with a long-term goal of reducing risk of Alzheimer's disease. The motivation for this study is that previous exercise interventions have improved cognitive function in older adults with and without cognitive impairments, but these studies were largely conducted without substantial African American representation. Due to genetic and environmental differences betwe...
The objectives of this study are to develop a Culturally Tailored Genetic (CTGC) protocol for African American women and evaluate its impact on decision making and satisfaction about BRCA1/2 testing, quality of life, and cancer control practices compared to Standard Genetic Counseling (SGC). A secondary objective of this study is to identify African American women who are most and least likely to benefit from CTGC vs. SGC.
African American men are at risk of developing chronic disease partly due to low levels of regular physical activity. Studies have been effective in increasing physical activity levels in African American men; however for the health benefits of exercise to be maintained continued physical activity is necessary. The purpose of the current study is to develop a mobile phone application for African American men that will help them maintain their physical activity levels.
RATIONALE: Gathering information about genetic and environmental factors may help doctors understand why African American men have an increased risk of prostate cancer and die more often from prostate cancer than Caucasian men. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying genetic and environmental risk factors in African American and Caucasian healthy men and in patients with prostate cancer.
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies how well a virtual weight loss program (SparkPeople) works in helping female African American breast cancer survivors maintain a healthy weight. Many patients with breast cancer are overweight or gain weight after diagnosis. SparkPeople is a free web-based weight loss program that features educational and motivational articles and videos, self-monitoring tools, incentives, social support communities (including discussion forums, team...
The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate the feasibility of recruiting African American prostate cancer survivors to a 12 week physical activity intervention study of three arms (aerobics, resistance training, and usual care) through physician referral and community advertisement strategies. In addition, the investigators will investigate the acceptance rate of the intervention and gather preliminary results on the effect of exercise on African American men's urinary and ...
This is a pilot study of abiraterone acetate in African American/Black patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer. The primary objective is to determine the correlation between germline polymorphisms and antitumor activity (as defined by a decline in PSA of ≥ 30%) in African American patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer treated with abiraterone acetate. Patients will receive abiraterone acetate until the time of disease progression, in the absence of pr...
RATIONALE: Gathering information about timely diagnosis in African American and Caucasian patients with newly diagnosed colorectal cancer may help doctors learn more about factors that influence a diagnosis and plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying differences in timely cancer diagnosis in African American patients and in Caucasian patients with newly diagnosed colorectal cancer.
The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether a tumor test recently developed by GenomeDx Biosciences known as Decipher® can predict aggressive prostate cancer with the same accuracy in African-American men (AAM) as in non-African-American men (NAAM). The Decipher® test was developed from samples derived mainly from men of European origins and little is known about its performance in AAM. It is important to study whether this test can be used in AAM who are known ...
The purpose of this study is to collect data prospectively on African American patients who are taking the immunosuppressant Envarsus post kidney transplant. We are looking to see if African American renal transplant recipients that receive Envarsus will have less tubular injury and calcenurin inhibitor toxicity compared with patients that receive tacrolimus IR. African americans have the higher rates of CYP3A5 which is associated with the need of higher tacrolimus dose to ach...
The purposes of this study are: a) to develop a statewide Biobank for prostate cancer among men of African Ancestry in Florida and; b) to examine whether smoking increases the aggressiveness of prostate cancer using several biological approaches. Investigators plan to contact African American prostate cancer patients regarding participation. This project has 3 main components. Eligible patients may choose to participate in any or all parts of the study: Questionnaires; Saliva ...
African American women have higher rates of obesity than women of any other racial or ethnic group in the United States. Obesity can have many causes, including genetic and environmental factors. This study will examine how neighborhood environments influence the occurrence of obesity among African American women.
