Establishing patient derived xenografts for MPNST

We hope to use patient samples of MPNSTs to learn more about tumors in order to identify new drugs and drug combinations that could help patients with MPNST in the future. For this research, we will ask participants to provide samples of their tumors and blood while they are undergoing biopsies or tumor resections. We will study the tumors by implanting samples into mice and treating them with therapeutic drugs. We will also perform genetic assessment and other analysis of the tumors and blood. Recruiting participants with MPNST over the age of 12

COG ARST2032: A Prospective Phase 3 Study of Patients with Newly Diagnosed Very Low-risk and Low-risk Fusion Negative Rhabdomyosarcoma

Rhabdomyosarcoma is a type of cancer that occurs in the soft tissues in the body. This phase III trial aims to maintain excellent outcomes in patients with very low risk rhabdomyosarcoma (VLR-RMS) while decreasing the burden of therapy using treatment with 24 weeks of vincristine and dactinomycin (VA) and examines the use of centralized molecular risk stratification in the treatment of rhabdomyosarcoma. Another aim of the study it to find out how well patients with low risk rhabdomyosarcoma (LR-RMS) respond to standard chemotherapy when patients with VLR-RMS and patients who have rhabdomyosarcoma with DNA mutations get separate treatment. Finally, this study examines the effect of therapy intensification in patients who have RMS cancer with DNA mutations to see if their outcomes can be improved.

Sex differences in the effecTs of brEaking uP sedentary behavior on vascUlar function in Type 2 Diabetes (STEP UP T2D)

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) confers a high risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), particularly among older adults who tend to be physically inactive. Most studies that have examined the effects of changing sedentary behavior (SB) have focused on young healthy males and prioritized glycemic outcomes. We will look at the effect of 3 different ways of breaking up sitting: 1) 4 hours of prolonged SB, 2) 4 hours of SB broken up by 5 minutes of self-paced walking every hour, and 3) 4 hours of SB with one 20-minute bout of self-paced walking. In addition to examining the overall effects of each condition, differences between men and women will be evaluated.

Mechanisms of a Dynamic Stability Approach

If you have been referred to occupational therapy for thumb carpometacarpal osteoarthritis and you are 18 years or older, you are eligible for this study. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States, with an estimated 25.6 million Americans affected by osteoarthritis (OA) of the hand. Thumb carpometacarpal osteoarthritis (thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) joint osteoarthritis) is the most common and limiting form of hand osteoarthritis, causing chronic pain, weakness, reduced joint movement, and difficulty carrying out common daily tasks. The purpose of this research study is to find out if an 8-week dynamic stability program can help people with a range of CMC OA severity and symptoms. Dynamic stability (DS) is a new occupational therapy program that uses a series of exercises to strengthen specific muscles around the thumb CMC joint. By strengthening these muscles, the DS approach aims to reduce joint pain, delay further damage, and improve function and participation in daily activities. If you enroll, we expect that you will be in this research study for 9 weeks, for a total of about 15 hours of participation. During the study, you will participate in: 4 occupational therapy (OT) study visits (about 60 minutes each), a home exercise program (15-20 minutes/day) for 8 weeks and, 2 assessment visits (Baseline, and week 9) where we will using Computerized Tomography, a type of X-ray, and ultrasound to take measures of your affected joint and have you complete questionnaires related to pain and disability.

Impact of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and IBD-related Surgery on Female Fertility: A Prospective Registry

This is a prospective questionnaire study that will examine the impact of IBD and its surgical treatments on fertility in women with IBD of reproductive age (18-45). Women with IBD who are attempting to get pregnant within the next year will answer questionnaires about their general, surgical and reproductive health, conception history and sexual partner information. This will help identify risk factors predictive of fertility outcomes and early fetal loss, determine time to conception, and assess efficacy of fertility services including in vitro fertilization.

Evaluate the perspectives of cancer survivor patients and caregivers on using an intrathecal drug delivery system as a continuum of pain management care using a qualitative study.

Targeted medication delivery near the spinal cord (intrathecal pump) may be offered for cancer pain treatment in carefully selected patients. Prior studies showed an improved functional status reduction in oral medications and their side effects. Cancer survivors receiving intrathecal pump treatment for pain are eligible to participate in the research and share their stories. After consenting, a interview (45 minutes by zoom) will be conducted before and after the treatment to improve our understanding of patient perceptions of pain treatment with an intrathecal pump.

MT2019-01: Adrenoleukodystrophy National Registry Study (ALD) and Biobank

In this protocol, we will enroll pediatric, adolescent and adult patients diagnosed with adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). These patients will include probands diagnosed by newborn screening and their relatives subsequently diagnosed, as well other patients who are diagnosed with ALD due to other presenting signs and symptoms and subsequently were confirmed to have ALD. We will ask consenting subjects to provide a medical history (with verification via medical records), to participate in a semi-annual health survey and provide consent to collect biospecimens. The overarching goal of this work is to engage with families affected by ALD and to assemble a resource of clinical, medical, and biological data that will allow of to better understand the natural history of ALD, and how this is affected by newborn screening. The initial focus will be on patients within Minnesota, but participation will be open to any family interested in the study, as this will be web-based. This registry and biobank, together with other research conducted in tandem, will possibly provide information describing the natural history of ALD and outcomes with interventions. It is anticipated that the data collected will further our understanding of the natural history of the disease, basic biology of adrenoleukodystrophy, diagnosis and outcomes. Ultimately, this research may lead to new avenues for early diagnosis and development of safer and more effective therapies for ALD.

Neuroplasticity in REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

REM sleep behavior disorder may predict the eventual symptom development of Parkinson’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, or multiple system atrophy. This occurs over years to decades and the sleep disorder may hide other typical symptoms and result in a delay in diagnosis. We are studying the changes in the brain over two years. We will do high field MRI’s (7T) and other tests of neurological function of people who have REM sleep disorder and people who don’t have this disorder (matched for age and sex).
