This phase III trial studies how well active surveillance, bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, or cisplatin work in treating pediatric and adult patients with germ cell tumors. Active surveillance may help doctors to monitor subjects with low risk germ cell tumors after their tumor is removed. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, and cisplatin, 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

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is one of the most frequent complications of pregnancy, that affect between 1 to 14% of population around the world. The overall purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of individualized medical nutrition therapy (MNT) intervention to reduce and control the development of GDM.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of training with the Gait Enhancing and Motivating System-Hip (GEMS-H) vs. training without the GEMS-H on locomotor function in elderly adults. The investigator hypothesizes that long-term GEMS-H use would improve locomotor function. Specifically, individuals in the GEMS-H group will show faster gait speed compared to those in the control group.

National Cancer Institute et.al. is conducting a Single Group Assignment study in 259 participants in order to understand how well computed tomography works in diagnosing patients with pancreatic or hepatobiliary cancer. Computed tomography may help researchers predict how patients with pancreatic or hepatobiliary cancer may respond to chemotherapy.

This study is conducted to clinically assess safety and performance of the Polyganics nerve capping device for the treatment of symptomatic neuroma. There is sufficient clinical experience with regard to the safety of the commercially available nerve guide, NEUROLAC®. This new nerve capping device is identical in material and manufacturing. The exception is in design, where NEUROLAC® has two open ends, the nerve capping device has one closed (sealed) end. This study will be conducted to obtain data on the clinical performance of the capping device's ability to isolate the nerve end, resulting in a reduction of pain of experienced from the symptomatic neuroma and prevention of the reoccurrence of a symptomatic neuroma.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the monitoring of moderate diabetic retinopathy by tele-expertise. This study compares 2 strategies of monitoring of moderate diabetic retinopathy (RD). After a consultation with an orthoptist for measurement of visual acuity, measurement of ocular tone by pulsed air tonometer, retinography pictures (9 photographs: one of the posterior pole and 8 of the retinal periphery) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), results are evaluated on-site by an ophthalmologist and then sent through a secure medical online application to an ophthalmologist expert in RD for assessment. Each patient is his own control.
