The purpose of this research is to test whether bacteria that normally live in the intestines play a role in fighting cancer. It is believed that the development and behavior of these immune cells may be influenced by bacteria and other microorganisms living in the gut. In turn, the activities of these immune cells could work with anti-cancer therapies to make them more, or less, effective.

This is a Phase II study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a human papilloma virus (HPV) therapeutic vaccine called PepCan (HPV 16 E6 peptides combined with Candida skin testing reagent called CandinĀ®) in adult females over a 12 month time period. As the results from the Phase I trial demonstrated some efficacy against non-16 HPV types, Candin alone will also be tested. Therefore, there will be two treatment arms: (1) PepCan and (2) Candin. Subjects found to be eligible for vaccination will be randomized in a double-blinded fashion at a 1:1 ratio. Each participant will be receiving injections four times with three weeks between injections. Clinical and virological responses will be assessed at 6 and 12 months. Safety will be assessed from the time of enrollment to 12 Month Visit. Immunological assessments will be made at 4 time points (prevaccination, after 2 injections, 6 month after 4 injections and 12 months after 4 vaccinations).

This study is a prospective collection of data utilizing the Imaging Beta Probe (IBP) in patients with positron emission tomography (PET) positive disease. A pilot clinical study involving 5 patients will be conducted using the IBP. The sterilized IBP will be used intraoperatively in surgical wounds for localization of tumor sites and detecting completeness of excision vs. positive margins. The outcome of each of these studies will be documented and used to demonstrate clinical benefits of the new probe. The investigators will correlate the images from the probe of the Fludeoxyglucose (18FDG) positive tissue, both in-vivo and ex-vivo after dissection, with the previously performed PET scan and with the routine pathology results obtained on the surgical specimens.The experimental imaging modality studied in this protocol will be compared to clinically utilized modalities of ultrasound and PET/ CT. Localization between imaging modalities will be compared with respect to: detection and side of localization.

The intent for this study is to do a retrospective chart review of all patients who have undergone minimally invasive parathyroidectomy for primary hyperthyroidism. All data collected will be recorded under assigned identification numbers that will have no association with medical record or hospital numbers. Identifying characteristics will include age and sex. Anonymity will be upheld. The patient/family will not be contacted directly. All information will be obtained from the medical chart. Demographics, location, preoperative PTH levels and intraoperative Ex-Vivo gamma counts, co-morbid conditions, and the outcome based on the hospital notes will be obtained from patients' charts and will be transferred to a secure database. It is our hypothesis that there is a linear relationship between immediate preoperative parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels and Ex-Vivo gamma counts and the aim of this study is to better describe this relationship.

This study is an observational (ie, non-interventional), longitudinal, multicenter, global registry for patients with pyruvate kinase (PK) deficiency, a rare non-spherocytic hemolytic anemia. This Registry will be open for enrollment for 7 years and all enrolled participants will be followed prospectively for a minimum of 2 years, and up to 9 years. Data will be collected from participating Registry Physicians, participants, and, where appropriate, parents/guardians who have provided informed consent or assent (where relevant) and authorization pursuant to applicable laws and regulations. Data should include demographic, clinical, and treatment data; and other data of relevance to the management of patients with PK deficiency. Annual assessments are strongly encouraged to enhance longitudinal understanding of PK deficiency; however, no specific assessments are set or required by this Registry protocol.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the level of a specific protein (PTEN) in the cancer cells of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) patients. This protein might be involved in the transformation from normal blood cells to leukemia cells. The PTEN protein has not been investigated in CMML specifically but it has been discovered in closely related cancers. If this study demonstrates an abnormality in this protein, future testing will be designed to evaluate the genetic abnormality that resulted in lack of the normal presence of this protein. The goal is that the results of this study will help to develop new drugs and strategies to treat the future patients with CMML by understanding the abnormality of the disease at the cellular and molecular levels. The results of this study can also be utilized by future studies to develop individualized treatment to patients who have abnormal levels of this protein.

The Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY) trial is the first ever international multi-center randomized controlled trial in bone cancer surgery. In order to avoid amputation for bone cancer in the leg, complex limb-saving operations are performed. However, infections with devastating complications following surgery are common. Surgeons from across the world will randomize patients to receive either short- or long-duration antibiotic regimens after surgery with the goal of identifying the best regimen to reduce these infections.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide followed by paclitaxel with or without carboplatin work in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, 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. It is not yet known whether doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide is more effective when followed by paclitaxel alone or paclitaxel and carboplatin in treating triple-negative breast cancer.
