This phase III trial studies how well response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy works in treating younger patients with non-high risk neuroblastoma. Sometimes a tumor may not need treatment until it progresses. In this case, observation may be sufficient. Measuring biomarkers in tumor cells may help plan when effective treatment is necessary and what the best treatment is. Response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy may be effective in treating patients with non-high risk neuroblastoma and may help to avoid some of the risks and side effects related to standard treatment.

This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well pazopanib hydrochloride, combination chemotherapy, and radiation therapy work and compares it to radiation therapy alone or in combination with pazopanib hydrochloride or combination chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas that can be removed by surgery. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as ifosfamide and doxorubicin 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. Pazopanib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy works better when given with or without combination chemotherapy and/or pazopanib hydrochloride in treating patients with non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas.

This randomized phase III trial studies brentuximab vedotin and combination chemotherapy to see how well they work compared to combination chemotherapy alone in treating children and young adults with stage IIB or stage IIIB-IVB Hodgkin lymphoma. Combinations of biological substances in brentuximab vedotin may be able to carry cancer-killing substances directly to Hodgkin lymphoma cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, bleomycin sulfate, vincristine sulfate, etoposide, prednisone, and cyclophosphamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known if combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without brentuximab vedotin in treating Hodgkin lymphoma.

The investigators propose a Phase II study, prospective and placebo controlled, of a topical cream containing sodium nitrite compared to the current standard of care. Sodium nitrite is a local donor of nitric oxide, which is known to improve blood flow and decrease bacterial load in the ulcer bed. The primary objectives are to evaluate the safety of topical sodium nitrite cream treatment in patients with sickle cell disease and chronic leg ulcers and to determine its effectiveness in accelerating the healing process and decreasing the pain associated with ulceration. Potential benefit will be a durable resolution or improvement of the leg ulcer and its associated pain. Possible side effects include decreased blood pressure and methemoglobinemia, secondary to sodium nitrite absorption through the ulcerated skin. Funding source FDA OOPD.

The CHALO ("Child Health Action to Lower Oral Health and Obesity") -- from an Urdu word meaning "Let's go!"—is a multi-level strategy to reduce pediatric obesity and dental caries risk in South Asian (SA) children. Obesity and caries are the two most prominent health disparities of early childhood. Both caries and obesity: a) disproportionately impact low-income children of color, b) share common risk behaviors, i.e., feeding practices, and c) can most effectively be reduced or prevented prevention in infancy and early childhood. SA immigrant children are at high risk for both. CHALO includes both a randomized controlled trial (RCT) aimed at reducing risk behavior, and a Knowledge Translation project to raise awareness in SA lay and professional communities regarding child health risks.

Ventilator-associated events (VAE) are a scourge of critical care settings and hospital systems at large. There is extensive evidence that ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and related VAEs increase mortality rates in critically ill patients by up to 50%, while simultaneously increasing cost of care. C Best-practice guidelines state that positioning ventilated patients at an angle between 30-45 degrees significantly reduces the potential for VAP and other VAE to develop. While the intent of the guidelines is to govern patient elevation angle, the lack of a mechanism to accurately measure patient elevation requires that nurses rely on the head-of-bed (HOB) protractor - a tool which reflects the angle of the bed, not the patient - to measure compliance. Depending upon the position and posture of the patient in the bed, a patient's elevation angle may be significantly different from the HOB angle. Critical care teams currently rely on built-in HOB protractors and digital inclinometers that measure the angle of the bed not the patient. Angulus, LLC has developed a dual-component Angulus sensor to fill this gap in critical care technology. Angulus enables critical care practitioners to instantaneously understand a patient's elevation, identify when the patient is outside of the desired 30-45 degree recumbency scope, and efficiently correct the patient's orientation with immediate feedback. Angulus supports real-time minute-to-minute data display as well as longitudinal aggregation of data.

This randomized phase II trial studies how well abiraterone acetate and antiandrogen therapy, with or without cabazitaxel and prednisone, work in treating patients with hormone-sensitive prostate cancer previously treated with docetaxel that has spread to other parts of the body. Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Hormone therapy using abiraterone acetate and antiandrogen therapy may fight prostate cancer by lowering and/or blocking the use of androgens by the tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cabazitaxel and prednisone, 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 abiraterone acetate and antiandrogen therapy with or without cabazitaxel and prednisone may help kill more tumor cells.

Many youth with chronic disease have difficulty taking medication every day and therefore do not receive full benefit from treatment. Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is an inherited blood disease that affects African Americans and other underserved communities. Hydroxyurea (HU) is the sole FDA-approved drug therapy for SCD and is highly effective and improves quality of life. The proposed study, a 5-site four-year randomized control trial (RCT), builds upon the investigators' recent feasibility study of the same title. Overall goals are reducing barriers to HU use and improving adherence for youth 10-18 years through creation of a daily medication habit. The goal of the proposed multi-site study is to test the efficacy of the HABIT intervention at 6 months and sustainability of the effect at 12 months.

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common cancer diagnosed in children. The cancer comes from a cell in the blood called a lymphocyte. Normal lymphocytes are produced in the bone marrow (along with other blood cells) and help fight infections. In ALL, the cancerous lymphocytes are called lymphoblasts. They do not help fight infection and crowd out the normal blood cells in the bone marrow so that the body cannot make enough normal blood cells. ALL is always fatal if it is not treated. With current treatments, most children and adolescents with this disease will be cured. The standard treatment for ALL involves about 2 years of chemotherapy. The drugs that are used, and the doses of the drugs, are similar but not identical for all children and adolescents with ALL. Some children and adolescents receive stronger treatment, especially during the first several months. A number of factors are used to decide how strong the treatment should be to give the best chance for cure. These factors are called "risk factors". This trial is studying the use of a new, updated set of risk factors to decide how strong the treatment will be. The study also will test a new way of dosing a chemotherapy drug called pegaspargase (which is part of the standard treatment for ALL) based on checking levels of the drug in the blood and adjusting the dose based on the levels.
