Hawaii Clinical Trials
A listing of Hawaii clinical trials actively recruiting patient volunteers.
Beloved as an island paradise, Hawaii actually consists of eight major islands that are home to about 1.4 million people. Because of the archipelago's layout, large cities tend to be separated. Honolulu, on Oahu, is the largest city and the capital. Kailua-Kona and Hilo are some of the other major cities. Hawaii has long had a tourism-friendly economy where visitors from around the world can visit breathtaking white sand beaches, tour volcanoes, and see waterfalls. The Queen's Medical Center, part of The Queen's Health Systems, is the largest private hospital in the state, supporting more than 570 acute care beds.
Genetic Analysis in Identifying Late-Occurring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors
This clinical trial studies cancer survivors to identify those 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, avascular necrosis, 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.
Diet and Physical Activity Change or Usual Care in Improving Progression-Free Survival in Patients With Previously Treated Stage II, III, or IV Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies whether changes in diet and physical activity can increase the length of survival without the return of cancer (progression-free survival) compared with usual care in patients with previously treated stage II, III, or IV ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer. A healthy diet and physical activity program and counseling may help patients make healthier lifestyle choices. It is not yet known whether changes in diet and exercise may help increa ...
Long-Term Follow-Up of Patients Who Have Participated in Children's Oncology Group Studies
This clinical trial keeps track of and collects follow-up information from patients who are currently enrolled on or have participated in a Children's Oncology Group study. Developing a way to keep track of patients who have participated in Children's Oncology Group studies may allow doctors learn more about the long-term effects of cancer treatment and help them reduce problems related to treatment and improve patient quality of life.
Neuropsychological and Behavioral Testing in Younger Patients With Cancer
This research trial studies neuropsychological (learning, remembering or thinking) and behavioral outcomes in children and adolescents with cancer by collecting information over time from a series of tests.
Filgrastim-Mobilized Stem Cells for Transplantation Using Unrelated Donors
The purpose of the study is to: Establish and evaluate a system for collection of filgrastim-mobilized peripheral blood stem cells from National Marrow Donor Program donors (NMDP) donors Assess the safety among NMDP donors of filgrastim administration and PBSC leukapheresis Assess the safety and efficacy of filgrastim-mobilized PBSC in unrelated donor hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients Determine the acceptability of stem cell donation by filgrastim stimulated apheresis in normal dono ...
Study of Kidney Tumors in Younger Patients
This research trial studies kidney tumors in younger patients. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, blood, and urine from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and identify biomarkers related to cancer.
Biomarkers in Tumor Tissue Samples From Patients With Newly Diagnosed Neuroblastoma or Ganglioneuroblastoma
This research trial studies biomarkers in tumor tissue samples from patients with newly diagnosed neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma. Studying samples of tumor tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer.
Chemotherapy and Pelvic Radiation Therapy With or Without Additional Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With High-Risk Early-Stage Cervical Cancer After Radical Hysterectomy
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether chemotherapy and radiation therapy are more effective when given with or without additional chemotherapy in treating cervical cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying chemotherapy ...
Noninvasive Screening for Affected Pregnancies: Assay Development & Optimization in Affected Pregnancies
To collect samples for the purpose of developing and optimizing an in vitro noninvasive prenatal diagnostic (NIPD) test. The NIPD test employs circulating cell free (ccff) DNA extracted from whole blood samples collected from women who are pregnant with a fetus previously determined to have a chromosomal abnormality. The NIPD result will be compared to the standard test results obtained from other test methods such as karyotype, FISH, QF-PCR, and/or any commercially available NIPD test.
Radiation Therapy With or Without Chemotherapy in Patients With Stage I-IIA Cervical Cancer Who Previously Underwent Surgery
This randomized phase III trial studies radiation therapy with chemotherapy to see how well they work compared to radiation therapy alone in treating patients with stage I-IIA cervical cancer who previously underwent surgery. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as 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. It is not ...
A Prospective, Noninterventional Follow-Up Study of Children Aged 23 to 25 Months, Born to Mothers Who Received Hydroxyprogesterone Caproate Injection, 250 mg/mL, or Vehicle for Prevention of Preterm Birth
In the continuing efforts to understand the benefits and risks of in utero exposure to 17P this study is designed to evaluate differences in developmental outcomes of children, aged 23 to 25 months, born to mothers who participated in the 17P Efficacy Trial sponsored by Hologic (Protocol number 17P-ES-003).
S0820, Adenoma and Second Primary Prevention Trial
The investigators hypothesize that the combination of eflornithine and sulindac will be effective in reducing a three-year event rate of adenomas and second primary colorectal cancers in patients previously treated for Stages 0 through III colon or rectal cancer.
