Mobile Sensor Technologies to Assess General Symptomology of People With Cancer

Background: Many digital devices, such as smartphones and activity monitors, have sensors to collect and track health data. Researchers believe these devices may be able to transform the quality of clinical research and healthcare. They believe they may be able to help assess the symptoms, response to therapy, and quality of life of people with cancer. Objective: To collect data from people with cancer using an Apple iPhone alone or together with an Apple Watch in order to assess their symptoms and activity levels. Eligibility: People ages 18 years and over who have cancer and receiving treatment for their cancer in another NIH protocol Design: Participants will be screened with their medical records. Participants will have a baseline visit. They will have visits every 2 4 weeks based on the treatment protocol in which they are co-enrolled. Then they will have a follow-up visit 4 months after the baseline visit. Visits include: Medical history Physical exam Karnofsky Performance Scale/Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status to see how their disease affects daily activities The study team will use an iPhone to collect data. This includes a 6-minute walk test and tests of hearing, reaction time, and cognitive status. Questionnaires If participants have an iPhone, an Apple Watch will be provided to them after training at the baseline visit. Continuous measurement of their activity will be recorded by the watch between 2 visits. They will wear the watch while they are on study. They will wear the watch while it is not being charged. They should charge the watch at night time. They will have the watch for 4 months.

Genomic Services Research Program

Background: Genes are the instructions a person s body uses to function. Genome sequencing is a new way to look at genes that your main research team is using to learn the causes of the condition they are studying. When a new cause is found this way, it is called a primary variant. Each person has many variants. Most do not cause disease. Sequencing can also find secondary variants. These are not related to the condition your main research team is studying, but may show a person to be at high risk for cancer or another condition. Researchers want to learn more about what it means to have a secondary variant. Objectives: To find new gene changes that lead to certain medical conditions. To better understand the causes of certain diseases. To learn about how people understand their genetic test results. Eligibility: People with rare diseases who have already consented to and enrolled in another protocol run by a group other than the National Human Genome Research Institute. Design: DNA samples that were already collected will be studied. Participants may be asked to send in a second DNA sample (blood or saliva). These will be used to verify any findings. If a primary variant for the participant s health condition is found through genome sequencing, this will be shared with the participant by their primary research team. If the participant has a secondary finding, it will be shared by phone call or videoconference by this research group in the National Human Genome Research Institute. Some participants may get their results in person at the clinic. Three months after getting their secondary findings, participants will do an online survey and phone interview. They will be asked about how they have used the information. Some people who do not receive a secondary finding from genome sequencing will be asked to do an online survey three months after the get that result. Participants who have a secondary finding can get genetic counseling.
