  • Combination Chemotherapy and Lenalidomide in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Stage II-IV Peripheral T-cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

    This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of lenalidomide when given together with combination chemotherapy and to see how well they work in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage II-IV peripheral T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin hydrochloride, vincristine sulfate, and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Lenalidomide may stop the growth of peripheral T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for cancer growth. Giving combination chemotherapy with lenalidomide may be a better treatment for peripheral T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

  • EUROpean Pain Audit In Neonates

    EUROPAIN Survey is an epidemiological study aimed at assessing current clinical practices regarding the use of sedative and analgesic drugs in newborns admitted to NICUs or PICUs in different countries in Europe. This study is conducted as part of the NeoOpiod study.

    The main objective of this study is to determine the current clinical practices regarding the use of sedative and analgesic drugs in newborns in intensive units in different countries in Europe. The principal criteria are: the frequency of ventilated neonates receiving sedation and analgesia, the medications used for sedation and analgesia in ventilated neonates, the length of use of medications administered for sedation and analgesia in ventilated neonates and similarities and differences in sedation and analgesia practices among European countries.

    The secondary objectives are: a) to determine the proportion of neonatal units that have developed and implemented local written guidelines to provide continuous sedation and analgesia in ventilated newborn infants as well as to prevent and treat procedural pain, b) to document the published guidelines for neonatal analgesia and sedation in different European countries and develop consensus for common European standards that can be applied in all medical settings, c) to determine the frequency of use of pain assessment tools in ventilated newborn infants and evaluate their impact on pain management practices and d) to determine practices to assess and prevent withdrawal syndromes.

    The EUROPAIN STUDY is observational and therefore it will not interfere with routine practices of participating units. No changes in diagnostic, therapeutic or any managing strategy of patients are imposed by the participation in this study. This epidemiological study will only collect data on clinical practices in each unit. It will include all neonates up to a corrected age of 44 weeks post conception.

    The maximum duration of data collection for every included infant is 28 days. Data collection will stop before 28 days if the infant leaves the unit (discharge, death, transfer to another hospital). Data will be entered on a secure web-based questionnaire.

  • Epidemiology of Painful Procedures in Neonates

    Sick or premature neonates are exposed to frequent painful and stressful procedures during their stay in neonatal intensive care units. Although neonates do feel pain and may have long term effects induced by painful experiences, prevention and treatment of neonatal pain is far from optimal in many units. An epidemiological study (EPIPPAIN) conducted in neonatal and pediatric intensive care units in France in 2005 showed that painful procedures were extremely frequent and that analgesics treatments varied a lot among units. Since many guidelines have been issued by international scientific societies to manage neonatal pain, one may expect that the prevention and treatment of neonatal pain has improved over the last 6 years.

    Although awake endotracheal intubations are extremely difficult or impossible in older children or adults, such intubations are still frequently performed without sedation/analgesia in neonates. Recent studies have shown that premedications facilitate intubation conditions and greatly improve neonates tolerance of the procedure. Studies aimed at assessing the risks and benefits of different sedations/analgesia strategies are urgently needed in neonates. We also need a tool to assess at the same time the technical conditions of intubations and the tolerance of the neonate to the procedure so that data from different studies can be compared.

    The objectives of the present study are:

    1. To describe the incidence of painful and stressful procedures performed in the neonate in intensive care units as well as in neonates transported by the medical emergency system (SMUR) of the Ile-de-France region 6 years after the first EPPIPAIN study conducted in the same region and same type of population in order to assess the evolution of practices. The description of painful and stressful procedures will be completed with a real-time around-the-clock assessment of the pain induced by procedures using a validated behavioral pain scale.

    2. To link this study with The Epipage study 2 in order to look for associations between the number of painful and stressful procedures and/or analgesic treatments of the neonatal period and the neurological outcome of children that will be followed in the Epipage cohort. The Epipage study is a separate study that will follow for 13 years a cohort of premature neonates recruited in 2011.

    3. To describe the incidence of painful or stressful procedures and analgesic treatments in neonates transported by the pediatric emergency system (SMUR) of the Ile-de-France region in France.

    4. To obtain initial validity of a tool permitting to assess intubations in neonates. An observational detailed description of endotracheal intubations conditions will be conducted in neonates transported and intubated by SMUR and in neonates intubated in intensive care units

    5. To describe continuous sedation and analgesia practices in ventilated neonates in intensive care units. For these neonates, data from medical records will be recovered up to 2 months of admission in intensive care units

    6. To describe the frequency of heel sticks for glycemia measurement and blood gazes practices among centers. Relate heel stick practices to the normality or abnormality of glycemia results

  • Electronic Application of a Severe Sepsis Screening Tool and Management Bundle

    Thousands of children die from Sepsis following routine infections. Many of these deaths can be prevented with earlier recognition and focused management. No tools are currently available to recognize the signs of early sepsis in children. The investigators have developed a electronic health record-based tool that will recognize children with sepsis early and trigger an alert to their hospital caregivers. The caregivers will be prompted to launch a focused management bundle that can stabilize these children, prevent further deterioration and reduce their chances of sepsis related complications and death. The proposed study will test the validity and effectiveness of this electronic tool in reducing sepsis mortality rates.

  • Assessment of Pain in Newborns and Older Infants (Infant Pain Assessment Study =

    Pain assessments in non-verbal, critically ill infants represent an important clinical challenge. Older children or adults can easily express their pain, but infants lack that capability. They frequently experience repetitive acute pain during routine ICU care, but their analgesic management flounders on the horns of a dilemma: (a) failure to treat infant pain leads to immediate clinical instability and potentially long-term physical, behavioral, and cognitive sequelae, vs. (b) strong analgesics may increase risks for medical complications and/or impaired brain growth. Bedside nurses currently assess pain using pain scores, before taking action to ameliorate pain. Pain scores increase nursing workload and provide subjective assessments, rather than objective data for evaluating infant pain. Consequently, infants exposed to skin-breaking procedures, surgery, or other painful conditions often receive variable and inconsistent pain management in the ICU. The investigators aim to develop a multimodal pain assessment system, using sensor fusion and novel machine learning algorithms to provide an objective measure of pain that is context-dependent and rater-independent. This will enhance the quality of pain management in ICUs and allow continuous pain monitoring in real-time.

  • Radiation Therapy With or Without Combination Chemotherapy or Pazopanib Hydrochloride Before Surgery in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Non-rhabdomyosarcoma Soft Tissue Sarcomas That Can Be Removed by Surgery

    This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well pazopanib hydrochloride, combination chemotherapy, and radiation therapy work and compares it to radiation therapy alone or in combination with pazopanib hydrochloride or combination chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas that can be removed by surgery. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as ifosfamide and doxorubicin hydrochloride, 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. Pazopanib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy works better when given with or without combination chemotherapy and/or pazopanib hydrochloride in treating patients with non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas.
