Immunotherapy With Nivolumab and Ipilimumab Followed by Nivolumab or Nivolumab With Cabozantinib for Patients With Advanced Kidney Cancer, The PDIGREE Study
This phase III trial compares the usual treatment (treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab followed by nivolumab alone) to treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab, followed by nivolumab with cabozantinib in patients with untreated renal cell carcinoma that has spread to other parts of the body. The addition of cabozantinib to the usual treatment may make it work better. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cabozantinib, 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. It is not yet known how well the combination of cabozantinib and nivolumab after initial treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab works in treating patients with renal cell cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.

Prostate Oncologic Therapy While Ensuring Neurovascular Conservation (POTEN-C) (POTEN-C)
Reduction of dose to or 'sparing' of neurovascular structures during stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SAbR) for localized prostate cancer will improve retention of sexual potency, while retaining excellent oncologic control and other secondary health-related quality of life (HRQOL) endpoints. Primary Objectives: • To compare the decline in patient health-related quality of life (HRQOL) instrument-defined erectile dysfunction following stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SAbR) with or without neurovascular sparing Secondary Objectives: - Assess acute (within 9 months of treatment) and chronic (>9 months after treatment) SAbR related GU and GI toxicities, as well as serial impact on HRQOL metrics over time - Assess biochemical progression free survival, local recurrence, disease-specific survival - Evaluate the impact of neurovascular sparing on neurovascular element dose and the impact of rectal spacer use on neurovascular element sparing - Evaluate quality of spacer placement and its effect on dose to neurovascular structures - Evaluate rate local recurrence in the area of sparing adjacent to the neurovascular elements by biopsy in those with biochemical progression. - Evaluate simplified 'practical' secondary HRQOL sexual potency endpoints that can be compared to prior literature.

Testicular torsion is the spontaneous twisting of the testis and its blood vessels, resulting in acute pain, vascular compromise and death of the testicle if unrelieved quickly. In this study, investigators will test a near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) device that rapidly and non-invasively measures deep tissue oxygen saturation.
1 Month to 21 Years old
Inclusion Criteria:Males one month to 21 years of age with: Painful acute scrotum or testis OR Abdominal pain (+/- nausea, vomiting) and waddling gait ("cowboy shuffle") from painful scrotum.
Exclusion Criteria:Males with: Synchronous bilateral testicular torsion History of known testicular or scrotal surgery Current hernia or painless hydrocele Current obvious scrotal bug bites History of chronic respiratory, hematological or vascular problems that will affect total body tissue oxygenation levels (Home oxygen).
