The Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) will investigate the long-term effects of cancer and its associated therapies. A retrospective cohort study will be conducted through a multi-institutional collaboration, which will involve the identification and active follow-up of a cohort of approximately 50,000 survivors of cancer, diagnosed before 21 years of age, between 1970 and 1999 and 10,000 sibling controls. This project will study children and young adults exposed to specific therapeutic modalities, including radiation, chemotherapy, and/or surgery, who are at increased risk of late-occurring adverse health outcomes. A group of sibling controls will be identified and data collected for comparison purposes.

The burden placed on advanced cancer family caregivers (FCGs) and the toll on their mental and physical health have never been greater and is particularly pernicious for underserved groups in the Southeastern U.S., including rural-dwellers and African-Americans, for whom interventions have not been specifically developed and tested. The purpose of this K99/R00 is provide the awardee with the knowledge and training necessary to become a leading independent clinical investigator in developing and testing telehealth palliative care interventions for family caregivers (FCGs) of underserved persons with advanced cancer. The research specific aim during the K99 phase was to develop and tailor the content, format and delivery of a telehealth intervention for FCGs of persons with advanced cancer in the rural South. To meet this aim, qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with 26 lay healthcare navigators, 20 FCGs, and 18 patients with advanced cancer to elicit feedback on a FCG intervention outline based on published evidence-based interventions. After thematic analysis, major findings included that the intervention should: have topical content that is flexible and based on continuous assessment; include at least some face-to-face contact; cautiously consider internet-based technologies because internet access in rural areas is poor; and potentially have navigators lead the intervention with appropriate oversight and additional training. K99 study findings have been used to adapt and develop a potentially scalable FCG intervention in the Southern U.S. population (Project Cornerstone). The K99 study phase in combination with accomplishing the training objectives has successfully catalyzed the awardee's transition from a Postdoctoral Fellow to a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Nursing. The overall goal during the R00 phase will be to conduct a small-scale pilot RCT of Cornerstone with 60 FCGs of rural-dwelling and/or African-American patients with advanced cancer to assess acceptability, feasibility, and potential efficacy. The research specific aims during the R00 phase are to: evaluate the acceptability of Cornerstone and the feasibility of enrolling and retaining 60 participants into a RCT of the FCG intervention for 24 weeks (Aim 1) and evaluate the potential efficacy of Cornerstone in improving caregiver (Aim 2) and care recipient (Aim 3) outcomes compared to usual care (quality of life and distress [anxiety/depressive symptoms]). The results will directly support an R-01 application to conduct an efficacy RCT of an early, telehealth PC intervention for Southern FCGs of underserved persons with advanced cancer.

Impact of Glaucoma and Visual Field Loss on Life Space
University of Alabama at Birmingham Primary Open-angle Glaucoma

Mobility refers to a person's purposeful movement through the environment from one place to another and can be conceptualized as a continuum from bed bound (immobility) on one extreme to making excursions to distant locations on the other extreme. Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a chronic, progressive optic neuropathy that can lead to gradual loss of vision in the peripheral field and central vision. Older adults with POAG have an increased risk for motor vehicle collisions and falls. Moreover, existing studies suggest that patients with POAG exhibit more postural sway while standing as measured by a balance platform and also tend to walk more slowly than those who are normally sighted and free of ocular disease. While these disturbances likely influence mobility, there has been little research directly assessing the impact of POAG on mobility. This study will assess the impact of POAG on life space (one aspect of mobility) and will determine whether difficulties with life space are associated with difficulties experienced under conditions of dim lighting.

The goal of this study is to evaluate the effect of treatment of post-op wound infection in long bones after fracture fixation or joint fusion and either: (Group 1) operative debridement and PO antibiotic treatment for 6 weeks; or (Group 2) operative debridement and IV antibiotics for 6 weeks. Primary Hypothesis: The rate of treatment failure by one year in Group 1 will be non-inferior to the rate in Group 2. Treatment failure is defined as wound problems that require surgery >2 weeks after initial debridement, infection recurrence, infection with a new pathogen, joint erosion, implant failure, medical problems related to the treatment administration which necessitates a switch from one arm to the other.

Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy is more effective when given together with chemotherapy or alone after surgery in treating salivary gland tumors. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II/III trial is studying radiation therapy with or without chemotherapy to see how well it works in treating patients with high-risk malignant salivary gland tumors that have been removed by surgery.

The Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network (HCRN) has been established by philanthropic funding to conduct multi-institutional research (clinical trials and observational studies) on pediatric hydrocephalus. In addition to philanthropic funding, the HCRN has also received an NIH NINDS Challenge Grant to support the network infrastructure which allows for the conduct of this and other network studies. The HCRN consists of multiple Clinical Centers and the Data Coordinating Center (DCC). The HCRN Core Data Project will obtain data about all neurosurgical hydrocephalus events from the network Clinical Centers, and create a database to be used by HCRN investigators. The ongoing maintenance of the Core Data Project serves two main purposes: 1) it will help investigators understand the variability, progression, and current treatment practices for hydrocephalus in children, with an ultimate goal of better guiding and assessing therapeutic intervention and providing recommendations on patient care and, 2) it will provide pilot and descriptive data necessary for hypothesis generation and study design (i.e. preliminary power analyses, recruitment projections) for studies under development by the HCRN. This multi-institutional database will be maintained throughout the lifetime of the HCRN, and may be useful for tracking trends in pediatric hydrocephalus over time. The Core Data Project will be an invaluable resource to the HCRN and will help stimulate new research protocols, identify potential need for future expansion of the network to incorporate additional patient populations, and provide a descriptive understanding of children with hydrocephalus cared for within the network.
