This phase II trial studies how well radiation therapy with or without apalutamide works in treating patients with stage III-IV prostate cancer. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-ray to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Androgen can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Drugs, such as apalutamide, may lessen the amount of androgen made by the body. Giving radiation therapy and apalutamide may work better at treating prostate cancer than radiation alone.

There are several methods of closing a skin cut: stitches, skin glue, and medical tape. Stitches have been used for a long time to close skin cuts. Skin glue (invented in the 1970s) and medical tape (invented in the 1960s) are two newer methods to close skin cuts. The purpose of this study is to find out which method (stitches, skin glue, or medical tape) of closing skin cuts results in the least amount of scarring. Other things the investigators will be looking at are which method is the cheapest, which causes the least pain, which requires the least amount of sedation, and which method patients and parents like the best.

This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

The TOPP-2 registry is an international, non-interventional, prospective registry including children and adolescents newly diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension (PH) to gain further insights in the disease course and long-term outcome of PH in childhood. Patients will undergo clinical assessments and receive standard medical care, as determined by treating physicians in their daily clinical practice. The TOPP-2 registry is specifically designed to capture the variables that have been proposed as treatment goals in PePH and the reasons for changes in treatment strategy. The TOPP-2 registry uses the new clinical classification of PH as outlined at the 5th World Symposium for Pulmonary Hypertension (WSPH) in Nice 2013 and includes new characterizations for children with PH. The registry is planned and implemented under the scientific leadership of the Association for Pediatric Pulmonary Hypertension (PePH), independently from the financial sponsors. At least 200 of the enrolled patients will have a follow-up period of 3 years.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well combination chemotherapy (vincristine sulfate, dactinomycin, cyclophosphamide alternated with vincristine sulfate and irinotecan hydrochloride or vinorelbine) works compared to combination chemotherapy plus temsirolimus in treating patients with rhabdomyosarcoma (cancer that forms in the soft tissues, such as muscle), and has an intermediate chance of coming back after treatment (intermediate risk). Drugs used in chemotherapy 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. Combination chemotherapy and temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy or combination chemotherapy plus temsirolimus is more effective in treating patients with intermediate-risk rhabdomyosarcoma.
