This Phase I dose-escalation trial is designed to determine the safety and feasibility of rapidly generated tumor multi-antigen associated specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (TAA-T) in patients with newly diagnosed diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas DIPGs (Group A) or recurrent, progressive, or refractory non-brainstem CNS malignancies (Group B). Pediatric and adult patients who have high-risk CNS tumors with known positivity for one or more Tumor Associated Antigens (TAA) (WT1, PRAME and/or survivin) will be eligible to receive Tumor Antigen Associated Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (TAA-T). Patients will be enrolled in one of two groups: Group A includes patients with newly diagnosed diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPGs) who will undergo irradiation as part of their upfront therapy and Group B includes patients with recurrent, progressive or refractory CNS tumors including medulloblastoma, non-brainstem high-grade glioma, and ependymoma, among others. TAA-T will be generated from patient's peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) or by apheresis. This protocol is designed as a phase I dose-escalation study. Group A patients (DIPG patients): TAA-T will be infused any time > 2 week after completion of radiotherapy. Group B patients (other recurrent/progressive/refractory CNS tumors): TAA-T will be infused any time > 2 weeks after completing most recent course of conventional (non-investigational) therapy for their disease AND after appropriate washout periods as detailed in eligibility criteria.

This is a longitudinal, observational study of patients with Hemophilia A or B who are planning to switch to a newly approved coagulation factor replacement product, or who have recently switched factor products. The study will follow each patient for up to 1 year. Patients will be recruited at Hemophilia Treatment Centers (HTC) which are ATHN-affiliates. The primary outcome being studied is the development of inhibitor (i.e., antibodies to factor) at 1 year or 50 exposure days, whichever comes first. The study will be conducted at approximately 30 HTCs, with a planned enrollment of 600 patients.The entire study duration is projected to be approximately 6 years. In addition, optional substudies will be included for some products, as "Product-Specific Modules". These will be questionnaires to collect data for subjects receiving selected Factor products. For example, subjects receiving Kovaltry will be approached to participate in the 'Kovaltry Product-Specific Module'; subjects receiving Adynovate will be approached to participate in the 'Adynovate Product-Specific Module'. Questions will be related to product use, perceptions of product use, and other post-marketing consumer data.

In this research study the investigators want to learn more about the safety of the study drug, PTC596 has when taken during radiation. The investigators also want to learn about the effects, if any, these drugs have on children and young adults with brain tumors. The investigators are asking people to be in this research study who have been diagnosed with a high grade glioma (HGG) including diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) to be in the research, because they have scheduled to have radiation to treat their cancer. The study is divided into two parts. The goal of the first part is to find the dose of PTC596 that can be given with radiation without causing serious side effects. The purpose of this surgical study is to test the amount of a study drug that may be found in the tumor and blood when given prior to and during a planned surgery for removal of the recurrent tumor. The goals of the first part: - Find the highest safe dose of PTC596 that can be given together with radiation therapy without causing severe side effects; - Learn what kind of side effects can be caused by PTC596 with radiation therapy; - Learn more about the pharmacology of PTC596; - Learn more about the biological effects of PTC596 on the cells in their body including any changes to the tumor DNA; - Determine whether PTC596 with radiation therapy is a beneficial treatment for their tumor; - Determine if there are any changes to participants quality of life when taking PTC596. The goals of the surgical part are: - Learn if PTC596 is able to reach the tumor in the brain; - Learn what kind of side effects can be caused by PTC596 with radiation therapy; - Learn more about the pharmacology of PTC596; - Learn more about the biological effects of PTC596 on the cells in their body including any changes to the tumor DNA; - Determine whether PTC596 with radiation therapy is a beneficial treatment for their tumor; - Determine if there are any changes to their quality of life when taking PTC596.

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is the most common cyanotic congenital heart defect with the vast majority of survivors of corrective surgery left with some degree of right ventricular (RV) volume overload due to pulmonary regurgitation (PR) which cause RV enlargement with right heart failure, diminished biventricular function, ventricular arrhythmia, sudden death and decreased exercise performance over time. Pulmonary valve replacement has been thought to ameliorate these complications but the timing of replacement has yet to be determined with equipoise at the moment in this decision making process. As nearly all studies in this regard are retrospective with much less data in pediatric TOF than adults, this pilot trial sets the stage to create a prospective randomized trial in the teenage years.

Many types of cancer are primarily treated with surgery and patient survival is directly related to the extent to which the tumor is able to be removed. It is often difficult for surgeons to distinguish tumor tissue from normal tissue or to detect tumor cells that have spread from the original tumor site, resulting in incomplete removal of the tumor and reduced patient survival. In some sites, such as the brain, it is critical to avoid damage to normal tissue around the tumor to prevent adverse effects of surgery on function. Tozuleristide is a drug that is thought to attach to tumor tissue and then fluoresces (glows) when a special light from the Canvas is shined on it. It is hypothesized that tozuleristide, when imaged with the Canvas, will improve surgical outcomes by allowing surgeons to visualize the edges of the tumor or other ambiguous tissue in real-time as they operate. The purpose of this study is to evaluate how well tozuleristide imaged with Canvas work at helping to distinguish between tumor and normal tissue during surgery in pediatric primary central nervous system tumors.

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a rare disorder that causes bones to break easily. People with OI may have broken bones with little or no trauma, dentinogenesis imperfecta (DI), and, in adult years, hearing loss. It is seen in both genders and all races. OI can range from very severe to very mild. Individuals with the most severe type of OI may die at birth. People with severe OI who survive may have bowed arms and legs, very short stature and be unable to walk. People with the mildest form of OI may only break bones occasionally and have normal height and lifespan. People with OI also often have problems with the spine. The spine problems include compression fractures and scoliosis (a curvature of the spine). DI is characterized by grey or brown teeth that may chip and wear down and break easily. Before the genetic cause of OI was known, OI was classified into four types. Each type was based upon the symptoms and severity of OI. In most people with OI, the cause is a change in one of the genes that makes a protein called type 1 collagen. In the past decade, it was discovered that in about 5% of people with OI it is in another gene. Some doctors now classify OI both on how severe it is as well as which gene is causing OI. Our research aims are: 1. Perform DNA testing and collect natural history data on all individuals enrolled in this longitudinal study. The genetic cause of the brittle bone disease will be compared with things like severity, various features and response to treatments. 2. We will see how often people with type I OI have vertebral compression fractures of the spine. We will do x-rays to see how often they get compression fractures of the vertebrae, what happens over time and any risk factors that increase the risk of these compression fractures. 3. We will follow people with all forms of OI to see how often they develop scoliosis (curvature of the spine). We will look at the effects of scoliosis on lung function, ability to walk and quality of life. We will also look at the effects of various treatments (bracing, surgery, etc.) on scoliosis and lung function. 4. We will look at dental health in people with OI. We will see how often people with OI have problems with teeth alignment. Importantly, we will see how dental health impacts a person's quality of life.

This phase III trial studies how well response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy works in treating younger patients with non-high risk neuroblastoma. Sometimes a tumor may not need treatment until it progresses. In this case, observation may be sufficient. Measuring biomarkers in tumor cells may help plan when effective treatment is necessary and what the best treatment is. Response and biology-based risk factor-guided therapy may be effective in treating patients with non-high risk neuroblastoma and may help to avoid some of the risks and side effects related to standard treatment.
