This randomized phase III trial studies how well olanzapine with or without fosaprepitant work in preventing chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy that causes vomiting. Olanzapine and fosaprepitant dimeglumine may help control nausea and vomiting in patients during chemotherapy. Olanzapine is usually given in combination with other drugs, including fosaprepitant dimeglumine. It is not yet known if olanzapine when given with other drugs, is still effective without using fosaprepitant dimeglumine for controlling nausea and vomiting.
This randomized clinical trial studies a reproductive health program in patients with cancer. A reproductive health program may improve patients’ understanding of reproductive risks and receipt of appropriate treatment to achieve their reproductive health goals.
This randomized phase III trial studies digital tomosynthesis mammography and digital mammography in screening patients for breast cancer. Screening for breast cancer with tomosynthesis mammography may be superior to digital mammography for breast cancer screening and may help reduce the need for additional imaging or treatment.
This research trial studies carbonic anhydrase 9 (CA-IX), p16, proliferative markers, and human papilloma virus (HPV) in diagnosing cervical lesions in patients with abnormal cervical cells. Studying biomarkers in abnormal cervical cells may improve the ability to find cervical lesions and plan effective treatment.
This clinical trial studies the physical function and quality-of-life before and after surgery in patients with stage I cervical cancer. Studying quality-of-life in patients undergoing surgery for cervical cancer may help determine the intermediate-term and long-term effects of surgery.
Use of a Clinical Trial Screening Tool to Address Cancer Health Disparities in the NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP)
This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well whole-brain radiation therapy works and compares it with or without hippocampal avoidance in treating patients with small cell lung cancer that is found in one lung, the tissues between the lungs, and nearby lymph nodes only (limited stage) or has spread outside of the lung in which it began or to other parts of the body (extensive stage). Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. The hippocampus is part of the brain that is important for memory. Avoiding the hippocampus during whole-brain radiation could decrease the chance of side effects on memory and thinking. It is not yet known whether giving whole-brain radiation therapy is more effective with or without hippocampal avoidance in treating patients with small cell lung cancer.
This phase II randomized trial studies how well bupropion hydrochloride works in improving sexual desire in women with breast or gynecological cancer. Bupropion hydrochloride may work by boosting sexual desire, energy, or motivation without causing intolerable or undesirable side effects.
This randomized phase III trial studies how well eflornithine works compared to sulindac in preventing the return of the disease (recurrence) of high-risk adenomas and second primary disease in patients with stage 0-III colon or rectal cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as eflornithine and sulindac, 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 eflornithine is more effective than sulindac when given alone or in combination in preventing recurrence of cancer.
Phase III Trial, Prospective Evaluation of Carvedilol in Prevention of Cardiac Toxicity in Patients with Metastatic HER-2+ Breast Cancer
This randomized research trial studies how well serum tumor marker directed disease monitoring works in monitoring patients with hormone receptor positive Her2 negative breast cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Using markers to prompt when scans should be ordered may be as good as the usual approach to monitoring disease.
This randomized phase III trial studies acupuncture to see how well it works compared to sham acupuncture or standard therapy in treating dry mouth caused by radiation therapy (xerostomia) in patients with head and neck cancer. Acupuncture may help relieve dry mouth caused by radiation therapy.
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies two doses (low or high) of a device-guided breathing (RESPeRATE) intervention compared to usual breathing in reducing anxiety in early-stage lung cancer survivors. RESPeRATE is a portable device with a respiration sensor and headphones that may help reduce anxiety and may increase relaxation by automatically adjusting melody / tones to the participants' breathing patterns. It is not yet known whether low- or high-doses of the RESPeRATE device is more effective than usual breathing in reducing anxiety in lung cancer survivors.
This observational, cross-sectional study will recruit 200 YA survivors through the Wake Forest National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) Research Base (WF NCORP RB). Data will be collected using a web-based interface and will capture physical, psychosocial and cognitive late effects; work ability; work-related outcomes, including labor force participation, occupation, work place characteristics, and educational attainment; survivor characteristics; and cancer diagnosis/treatment information (from clinical records). We will evaluate the relationships among these measures using the theoretical framework to guide statistical analysis.
This randomized phase III trial studies how well donepezil hydrochloride works in improving memory performance in breast cancer survivors after chemotherapy. Donepezil hydrochloride may help improve memory function affected by chemotherapy treatment in breast cancer survivors.
