Clinical Trials

  • The purpose of this study is to investigate how mothers with babies with congenital heart disease feel about breastfeeding. We will ask you to fill out a survey while you are in the hospital at around the time of delivery and another survey approximately three months later to see how you feel about breastfeeding. In addition to the survey data, the study team will be accessing maternal and infant medical records to gather information about this topic.
  • Research funded by the NIH is being done to learn if an asthma medication, given along with standard asthma care, makes children less likely to have asthma attacks.
  • In this trial, we will evaluate whether partially-HLA matched allogeneic multivirus-specific VSTs, will be safe and produce anti-viral effects in immunodeficient recipients infected with one of more of the targeted viruses that are persistent despite conventional anti-viral therapy. This will be in patients who have received a hematopoietic stem cell transplant or patients with primary immunodeficiency conditions who have persistent viral infections and have not undergone HSCT.
  • The purpose of this study is to find the best dose of Palbociclib that can be given safely with chemotherapy in children and young adults with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) or Lymphoblastic Lymphoma (LL) which has come back or has not responded to standard therapy. Palbociclib is considered experimental because it has not been approved by the United States (US) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating children with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and Lymphoblastic Lymphoma (LL). Palbociclib works by targeting proteins that are necessary for cell growth.
  • We are doing this research study to find out about what happens to children who are overweight and how the things we recommend as a part of routine clinical care affect your child. The purpose of this study is to understand what happens to children as a result of being overweight, to link these outcomes to specific clinical measures and to determine how treatment affects the physical and clinical features of overweight or obesity. To achieve this aim we want to formalize our ongoing clinical chart review into a database for our patients.
  • This research study is being conducted to study pulmonary hypertension and right heart dysfunction based on clinical, imaging, physiological and pathological characteristics. We hope to develop a new classification system and new methods to diagnose and treat pulmonary hypertension. Diagnostic testing includes (listed subsequently): full medical work-up, minimal blood collection, right heart catheterization, echocardiogram, ekg, take home sleep oximetry study, six-minute walk, exercise test, Pulmonary function test, Lung CT, Questionnaires, ventilation/perfusion scan and cardiac MRI.
  • Asthma registry to maintain and expand a database of participants with asthma who may be able to participate in future Inner City Asthma Consortium studies.
  • This is a Phase 1/2 multicenter study of lenvatinib administered in combination with everolimus inpediatric patients with relapsed or refractory solid tumors, including CNS tumors. The study treatment is considered experimental because lenvatinib is not approved by the United States(US) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating pediatric patients with refractory solid tumors, including CNS tumors. The purpose of this study is to determine the highest safe dose of lenvatinib administered in combination with everolimus.
  • The purpose of this study is to characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) and safety of intravenous (IV) pantoprazole in patients 1 to 16 years old who are candidates for acid suppression therapy.
  • This is a Phase 1 multicenter study of LY2606368, a CHK1/2 inhibitor, in pediatric patients with refractory solid tumors, including CNS tumors. The study treatment is considered experimental because LY2606368 is not approved by the United States (US) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating pediatric patients with refractory solid tumors, including CNS tumors. The purpose of this study is to estimate the maximum tolerated dose of LY2606368. Another objective is to define its toxicities and potential antitumor activity.
