Head Start 4 Protocol for Children with Medulloblastoma and CNS Embryronal Tumors

Children (less than 10 years of age) are eligible if they have been diagnosed with either a medulloblastoma tumor or CNS embryonal tumors of the brain or spinal cord. The standard approach to the treatment of these brain tumors in young children may include surgery, radiation therapy to the brain and spinal cord and chemotherapy. Radiation therapy is the use of high energy x-rays to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy means treatment with cancer killing drugs. This research study will compare two different treatment regimens to see which is better for treating children with this type of brain cancer.

Prevention of Urinary Stones with Hydration

This is a randomized controlled trial that tests whether a program designed to maintain a high fluid intake decreases kidney stone recurrence. Patients 12 years of age or older who have had a kidney stone in the last 3 years may be eligible.

SmarToyGym: A research study about infant play

Motor development can be evaluated by studying infant play behavior and interactions with toys. Our goal is to develop a SmarToyGym where sensorized, wireless toys can measure an infant’s grasping movements such as squeezing, pinching, and shaking/tilting. We will collect information on how the infants move to play with the toys. We will test the SmarToyGym with atypical and typical developing infants between the ages of 3 to 11 months. The results will help us design toys to encourage reaching and play for infants at risk for motor delay.
