We list hundreds of Clinical Trials about "Pediatric Cancer" on BioPortfolio. We draw our references from global clinical trials data listed on ClinicalTrials.gov and refresh our database daily.
We have published hundreds of Pediatric Cancer news stories on BioPortfolio along with dozens of Pediatric Cancer Clinical Trials and PubMed Articles about Pediatric Cancer for you to read. In addition to the medical data, news and clinical trials, BioPortfolio also has a large collection of Pediatric Cancer Companies in our database. You can also find out about relevant Pediatric Cancer Drugs and Medications on this site too.
Cancer survival comes at a price: pediatric cancer survivors have a high risk for a wide range of cognitive difficulties, particularly survivors of cancer involving the central nervous system (CNS, e.g., brain tumors [BT]) are prone to neurocognitive impairments in areas such as executive functions, working memory, attention, memory, visuospatial and motor skills, processing speed as well as language. The aim of this interdisciplinary longitudinal study is to extend empirical k...
The goal of this study is to learn about the communication, decision-making, symptom management, emotional adjustment, and spiritual needs of parents and pediatric patients treated at the Children's Cancer Hospital at M. D. Anderson. Primary Objectives: 1. Determine the palliative care service needs of pediatric cancer patients and their parents, including communication, decision-making, symptom management, emotional and spiritual support when receiving trea...
An intervention to assist pediatric cancer survivors to behaviorally manage late effects.
The study aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of proton therapy on quality of life and long-term normal tissue toxicities of the pediatric cancer patients. Based on these results, the predictive model of long-term normal tissue toxicities, survival, and quality of life could be recognized. Risk-adapted treatment strategy based on the predictive model in pediatric cancer patients could be established.
The information gathered from normal pediatric patients seen at the Pediatric Neurology Clinic in the DCAM and LaRabida Children's Hospital will be used to standardize and validate the information gathered from pediatric patients with sleep disorders. This will serve as the information source for a pediatric sleep database.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term visual outcome of the cataract surgery using a large-scale and comprehensive database of pediatric cataract patients, including congenital and traumatic cataract. We will further investigate into the various genetic and environmental factors that may contribute to the pathogenesis of pediatric cataract.
The aim of the study is to retrospectively review data about malignancies that arise primarily in the pelvis and/or in the pelvic organs, in pediatric cancer patients & categorize the spectrum of these malignancies according to experience at South Egypt Cancer Institute which is the largest referral site in Upper Egypt.
Previous research suggests that children and adolescents with cancer are at heightened risk of late effects that can occur months or years after cancer treatment, yet little is known about programs that increase their return for follow-up cancer care and late effects surveillance. This study will evaluate the impact of an electronic personal health record and education system, SurvivorLink, for pediatric cancer survivors and their caregivers. The researchers will develop a stan...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether use of the Berlin Heart EXCOR Pediatric VAD for bridge-to-transplant is associated with a reasonable assurance of safety and probable benefit such that the EXCOR Pediatric merits approval by the Food and Drug Administration under a Humanitarian Device Exception (HDE).
The Oncoped 2006 study implements a multicenter prospective surveillance module for nosocomial infections in pediatric cancer patients.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether combined endurance and resistance training can improve muscle strength in children and adolescents with cancer during the intensive treatment phase.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of administration of TAK-536 in pediatric patients aged 6 to less than 16 years with hypertension.
RATIONALE: Providing parent/caregivers of children with cancer with education and evidence of secondhand smoke exposure can protect the child from future exposure to tobacco smoke. PURPOSE: This randomized study will compare education only to education plus cotinine feedback in decreasing secondhand smoke exposure in pediatric patients with cancer that reside with a household smoker.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of etanercept in pediatric subjects with moderate to severe psoriasis.
The study will assess the clinical and laboratory data of about 100 pediatric patients diagnosed and treated at the Pediatric Hematology Unit during the years 1980 until 2007 because of thrombotic events. The results, the treatment given, and the outcome of the patients will be summarized.
Background: In mainland China, the development of pediatric liver transplantation (LT) has lagged behind that of adult LT during the past two decades, but it has been progressing immensely in recent years. Renji hospital(shanghai) is currently the largest pediatric transplant center in mainland China. Aim and method: This study is performed for establishment of key techniques for pediatric LT in mainland China, including the indications and timing for pediatric LT, the criteri...
The purpose of the research is to examine the outcomes of pediatric patients receiving Botulinum toxin type A (Botox ®) for the treatment of migraine. There is limited literature on the effectiveness of Botox ® in the treatment of chronic neurological pain in pediatric patients, specifically in the treatment of migraines.
The aim of this study is to retrospectively investigate the effect of combined modality treatment of pediatric hepatoblastoma and the factors affecting the prognosis in accordance with the experience at the pediatric oncology department at South Egypt Cancer Institute.
The study aims to correlate the perioperative results of a device called thromboelastogram, which is used to detect coagulation abnormalities, with thrombotic complications during pediatric recipient liver transplantation.
Primary Objectives: 1. To examine illness-related factors (i.e., severity of illness, quality of life rating) as predictors or correlates of child adjustment to pediatric cancer. 2. To examine illness-related factors (i.e., severity of illness, quality of life rating) as predictors of school reintegration (i.e., school attendance) in children with pediatric cancer. 3. To examine a within-parent factor (i.e., parental stress) as a predictor or corre...
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the dose of EZN-2232 that can be given to MBL deficient pediatric cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. The pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and safety of the study drug will also be studied.
Results from this study will be used to verify that the published pediatric reference intervals are met on the DxH 520 Hematology Analyzer for the pediatric age ranges.
A prospective epidemiological study conducted in pediatric hematology oncology center in Hadassah medical center. The study will include all newly diagnosed pediatric cancer patients age 0-18 years admitted with fever during chemotherapy. In each event of febrile episode during chemotherapy, the following data will be collected using a patient data form and computerized software. Demographic data: age, gender, ethnicity. Clinical data: Underlying disease, immunizations, ...
The overarching objective is to ultimately develop new evidence-based treatment guidelines for invasive fungal infections in children. To accomplish that, this protocol will focus on two specific aims: 1) Compare the effectiveness of echinocandin versus amphotericin B or triazole antifungal therapy for pediatric invasive candidiasis; 2) Characterize the incidence of pediatric invasive candidiasis.
Patients undergoing a computed tomography are exposed to a relatively high dose of X-rays. Pediatric patients are known to be very radiosensitive with respect to radiation induced cancer. Using the technique of scoring γ-H2AX foci in peripheral blood lymphocytes the most important lesions to the genetic material DNA, double strand breaks induced by CT X-rays can be detected. The technique will be applied in a multicenter setting for evaluation of X-effects induced by a compute...
