This study will use three different magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to study HTLV-1 associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/STP)-a disease of slowly progressive weakness in the legs. It is not known how the HTLV-1 virus causes this disease, but it is thought that as the body's immune system tries to destroy the virus, parts of the nervous system-primarily the spinal cord-are damaged. Patients 18 years of age and older with ... Read More

RATIONALE: Vaccines made by inserting a laboratory-treated gene into a person's tumor cells may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells. Interleukin-2 may stimulate a person's white blood cells to kill cancer cells. Combining vaccine therapy with interleukin-2 may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining vaccine therapy with interleukin-2 in treating patients who have stage IV kidney cancer. ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to see if the investigational vaccines NefTat and gp120w61d are safe and tolerable in humans and to see how the immune system responds to the vaccines. There have been advances in the treatment and prevention of HIV, but the spread of HIV/AIDS is getting worse. HIV/AIDS is the main infectious cause of death in the world. A vaccine to prevent HIV disease is the best way to try to deal with this situation. Several vaccine products ... Read More

The problem is the lack of data from randomized controlled trials to throw light on the ALA-prostate cancer issue. There is therefore a need to acquire evidence from a randomized controlled study to illustrate the effect of ALA on a surrogate marker for prostate cancer, namely prostate specific antigen (PSA). Demonstration that atrial fibrillation recurrence was reduced after cardioversion and that there was no adverse effect of 1 years of ALA feeding on PSA ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy of d-cycloserine (DCS) treatment for Gulf War Illness (GWI). Gulf War veterans with Gulf War Illness experience numerous chronic health symptoms, including cognition and fatigue, which reduces their quality of life. Gulf War veterans are in urgent need of novel treatment plans to tackle elusive symptomatology of Gulf War Illness. By using the literature of previous studies, the investigators have ... Read More

This clinical trial involves the administration of the chemotherapeutic medication vinflunine. Vinflunine is not approved by the FDA and is experimental in the treatment of extensive small cell lung cancer. The purpose of this research trial is to study the effectiveness of vinflunine in patients with relapsed extensive small cell lung cancer, evaluate the toxicity, and evaluate how long the response to this drug lasts.

Background: The mainstay of therapy for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients remains systemic chemotherapy. Although partial remissions of up to 60% are obtained with conventional regimens, multiple myeloma is essentially an incurable disease with a median survival of approximately 30 months. Allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) results in a high percentage of complete remissions, but it can be associated with significant treatment-related ... Read More

The Native Hawaiian Diabetes Intervention Program is a project focused on determining whether a cultural-based, healthy lifestyles program with family support will have a positive effect on lifestyle behaviors and psychosocial and clinical outcomes. A culturally sensitive, lifestyle intervention program was administered via community peer educators to a population of Native Hawaiians with or at risk for diabetes. The effect of this intervention program on ... Read More

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the effect of different doses of ibuprofen on neutrophil (polymorphonuclear leukocyte; PMN) delivery to a mucosal surface (the oral mucosa) in patients with cystic fibrosis and healthy controls. II. Determine the duration of effect (and possible rebound effect) of ibuprofen on PMN delivery to a mucosal surface in these patients. Read More

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with G-CSF may make tumor cells more sensitive to the chemotherapy drug and may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of mitoxantrone plus G-CSF in treating patients with metastatic prostate cancer that has not responded to hormone therapy. Read More
