Capecitabine and Radiation Therapy after Surgery in Treating Patients with Non-Metastatic Invasive Breast cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase I trial studies how well capecitabine and radiation therapy after surgery work in treating patients with invasive breast cancer that has not spread to other places in the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as capecitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving capecitabine and radiation therapy together may kill more tumor cells in patients with invasive breast cancer compared to capecitabine or radiation therapy alone.

Observation of Low-Dose Skin Electron Therapy in Patients with Refractory or Relapsed Stage IB-IIIA Mycosis Fungoides

Lymphoma

This trial collects data on response to low-dose skin electron therapy in patients with stage IB-IIIA mycosis fungoides that does not respond to treatment (refractory) or has come back (relapsed). Collecting data on patient's response to therapy, both in terms of changes in the skin and in terms of quality of life following treatment, may help doctors better predict response to therapy.

Ifetroban in Treating Patients with Malignant Solid Tumors at High Risk of Metastatic Recurrence

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase II trial studies the side effects of ifetroban in treating patients with malignant solid tumors that are at high risk of coming back after treatment (recurrent) and spreading throughout the body (metastatic). Platelets are a type of blood cells that help with clotting. Cancer cells stick to platelets and ride on them to get to different parts of the body. Drugs, such as ifetroban, may help these platelets become less "sticky," and reduce the chance of cancer cells spreading to other places in the body.

Glutaminase Inhibitor CB-839, Panitumumab, and Irinotecan Hydrochloride in Treating Patients with Metastatic and Refractory RAS Wildtype Colorectal Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase I / II trial studies the best dose and side effects of glutaminase inhibitor CB-839 and how well it works with panitumumab and irinotecan hydrochloride in treating patients with RAS wildtype colorectal cancer that has spread to other places in the body and does not respond to treatment. Glutaminase inhibitor CB-839 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as panitumumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving glutaminase inhibitor CB-839 with panitumumab and irinotecan hydrochloride may work better in treating patients with colorectal cancer.

Early Palliative Care in Improving Recovery and Quality of Life in Patients with Cancer Undergoing Abdominal Surgery, the SCOPE Trial

Multiple Cancer Types

This trial studies early palliative care in improving recovery and quality of life in patients with cancer undergoing abdominal surgery. Frequently people diagnosed with cancer experience physical and emotional symptoms during the course of their disease. Introduction to a team of clinicians that specialize in the lessening of many of these distressing symptoms may improve overall care. This team of clinicians is called the palliative care team and they focus on ways to improve pain and other symptom management (i.e. shortness of breath, fatigue, anxiety, etc.) and to assist patients and their families in coping with the emotional, social, and spiritual issues associated with a cancer diagnosis. This study is being done to see if receiving palliative care earlier is more useful compared to receiving palliative care late in the course of illness.

Nivolumab with or without Ipilimumab in Treating Patients with Metastatic or Advanced Kidney Cancer

Kidney (Renal Cell)

This phase II trial studies how well nivolumab with or without ipilimumab works in treating patients with kidney cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic or advanced). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Integrated Telehealth or In-Person Palliative Care in Improving Quality of Life in Patients with Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Multiple Cancer Types

This randomized clinical trial studies how well integrated telehealth or in-person palliative care works in improving quality of life in patients with non-small lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced). Early involvement in palliative care may lesson many of the distressing physical and emotional symptoms and help patients and their families cope with serious illness as well as improve patients’ and their loved ones’ experience with cancer. Integrated telehealth palliative care involves patients meeting with palliative care clinicians using secure video-conferencing technology. It is not yet known whether giving integrated telehealth or in-person palliative care works better for patients and their families in improving quality of life.

Impact of Indwelling Tunneled Pleural Drainage Systems (Gravity or Vacuum Based) on Pain in Patients with Recurrent Pleural Effusions

Lung

This trial studies the impact of indwelling tunneled pleural drainage systems (gravity or vacuum based) on pain in patients with plural effusion that has come back (recurrent). Vacuum drainage and gravity drainage are two commonly used drainage methods. Studying the best drainage methods may help future patients undergoing indwelling tunneled pleural catheter placement.

Impact of Human-Animal Interactions on Children with Life-Threatening Conditions and their Parents

Multiple Cancer Types

This clinical trial explores the impact of human-animal interactions on children with life-threatening conditions and their parent. Studies have shown that animals can be entertaining and promote relaxation and comfort during stressful events. Having animal-assisted interaction visits on a routine basis, with a trained animal-handler and his / her dog, may make the cancer treatment process less stressful for the parent and children.
