The primary purpose of this study is to generate pediatric-specific reference ranges that take into account patient sex, age, corrected gestational age, ethnicity, etc., and laboratory variables for various coagulation studies.
The purpose of this trial is to identify cancer survivors who are at increased risk of developing late-occurring complications after undergoing treatment for childhood cancer. A patient's genes may affect the risk of developing complications, such as congestive heart failure, heart attack, stroke, and second cancer, years after undergoing cancer treatment. Genetic studies may help doctors identify survivors of childhood cancer who are more likely to develop late complications.
The purpose of this study is threefold: the first aim is to use patient-derived fresh tumor tissue to create cell lines and 3D tumor models (i.e. organoids) that preserve the characteristics of the original tumor. The preservation of the original tumor's drug resistance/response profile will be a major focus of this aim. The second aim is to conduct high-throughput testing of various drugs (e.g., virotherapy, immunotherapy) on these cell lines and 3D tumor models. The completion of the second aim is an important step towards developing a platform that can help guide treatment decisions for future patients, based on the drug response observed in the cell lines and 3D tumor models. The third aim is to use pan-omics approaches (i.e., genomics, proteomics, metabolomics) to find markers of drug response based on the results of the high-throughput drug testing on the cell lines and 3D tumor models.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety of various Von Willebrand Factor (VWF) regimens for different indications (on-demand, surgery and prophylaxis) in adult and pediatric participants with clinically severe congenital VWD.
The purpose of this Pediatric MATCH screening and multi-sub-study phase II trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in pediatric patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, or histiocytic disorders that have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and/or for which no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong survival. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic changes or abnormalities (mutations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic mutation, and may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors or non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
The pupose of this study is to evaluate whether or not selumetinib works just as well as the standard treatment with carboplatine/vincristine (CV) for subjects with NF1-associated low grade glioma (LGG), and to see if selumetinib is better than CV in improving vision in subjects with LGG of the optic pathway (vision nerves). Selumetinib is a drug that works by blocking some enzymes that low grade glioma tumor cells need for their growth. This results in killing tumor cells. Drugs used as chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and vincristine, 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 selumetinib works better in treating patients with NF1-associated low-grade glioma compared to standard therapy with carboplatin and vincristine.
The primary purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of heated intra-peritoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) with doxorubicin (DOXO) and Cisplatin (CDDP) after surgical resection of pediatric pelvic and abdominal tumors, and to assess morbidity, hospital length of stay and peri-operative mortality outcomes for pediatric patients with intraperitoneal sarcoma undergoing hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate cognitive function and to determine neurocognitive assessment using a select CogState test battery in patients with primary intracranial malignancies receiving photon- or proton-based cranial irradiation with curative intent.
The purpose of this study is to determine how well cisplatin and combination chemotherapy works in treating children and young adults with hepatoblastoma or liver cancer after surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, doxorubicin, fluorouracil, vincristine sulfate, carboplatin, etoposide, irinotecan, sorafenib, gemcitabine and oxaliplatin, 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 combination chemotherapy after surgery may kill more tumor cells.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how well bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, or cisplatin work in treating pediatric and adult patients with germ cell tumors. Active surveillance may help doctors to monitor subjects with low risk germ cell tumors after their tumor is removed. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, and cisplatin, 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.
