The purpose of this study is to determine if two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE) derived-strain can detect early myocardial dysfunction and thus predict cardiotoxicity in sarcoma subjects undergoing anthracycline therapy and to compare three dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (3D-STE) to 2D-STE in the same group of patients.
This research study is collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, bone marrow, and blood from patients with Ewing sarcoma. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, bone marrow, and blood from patients with cancer to test in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.
Information regarding the delay in diagnosis as well as the causes of the delay are lacking in the U.S. Specifically, we aim to identify patient factors and provider factors that contribute to delayed diagnosis of sarcoma.
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.
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of two anti-cancer drugs (gemcitabine and docetaxel) with and without the study drug known as olaratumab in participants with advanced soft tissue sarcoma (STS) or STS that has spread to another part(s) of the body.
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical application of two emerging magnetic resonance (MR) imaging modalities which Mayo Clinic has the technical capability of using, by adding them at the same time that standard imaging is done for patients receiving treatment for Ewing Sarcoma , Rhabdomyosarcoma and soft tissue sarcoma.
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue and blood from patients to test in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to collect and store samples of blood and tumor tissue from patients with osteosarcoma.
The purpose of this study is to collect and store tumor tissue, blood, and bone marrow samples from patients with soft tissue sarcoma that will be tested in the laboratory. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, blood, and bone marrow from patients to test in the laboratory may help the study of cancer.
The purpose of this study is to assess the side effects and best dose of a genetically engineered measles virus for treating patients who have a cancerous peripheral nerve sheath tumor that cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable) or that has come back after a period of improvement (recurrent).
The aim of this study is to determine if there is subclinical systolic or diastolic myocardial mechanical dysfunction by 2D and 3D speckle tracking echocardiography derived strain and strain rate in this patient population at baseline, during and after chemotherapy. This could be an early marker of myocardial dysfunction in patients treated for sarcoma.
