This phase II trial studies how well irinotecan hydrochloride (irinotecan), temozolomide, and dinutuximab work with or without eflornithine in treating patients with neuroblastoma that has come back or that isn't responding to treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan hydrochloride and temozolomide, 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. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as dinutuximab, may induce changes in the body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Eflornithine blocks the production of chemicals called polyamines that are important in the growth of cancer cells. Giving eflornithine with irinotecan hydrochloride, temozolomide, and dinutuximab, may work better in treating patients with relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma.

This Phase II study aims to ascertain the effectiveness of HD-tDCS for adjunctive treatment of anomia in chronic aphasia post stroke. Furthermore, it will help explore factors such as alternate outcome measures, subject selection criteria, and benefits of extended treatment duration. These results will be compared to an existing trial using conventional non-targeted tDCS with the same design and outcomes. Patients will be treated with HD-tDCS while performing computerized anomia treatment. The basis behind this method is that language therapy is mediated by cortical areas that are most effectively activated during the training tasks, thus increasing electric stimulation in these areas may improve learning outcomes. To better understand the long term benefits of the adjunctive treatment, patients will be screened again four weeks and six months after study using the same anomia tests. If HD-tDCS shows promising results in increasing the learning outcomes of anomia treatment, a Phase III trial can be considered.

This is an open-label, single-arm, phase I trial. It is designed with a conservative dose escalation plan to ensure patient's safety and with a strong translational component to inform if target inhibition is achieved. With concerns regarding safety, based on extensive available pharmacokinetic data and clinical efficacy experience, bosutinib will be given 5-days in a row followed by 2 days rest in a weekly basis, instead of daily. The protocol will enroll patients per 3+3 escalation design. The Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) observation period is 28 days. At the end of DLT observation period of each cohort of 3 patients, decision will be made regarding further escalation or de-escalation according to this plan. Once the MTD of the combination is reached, the safety data will be analyzed. There will be no dose reductions during DLT observation period. Dose reduction within patients (individually) is allowed after the 4-week DLT observation period. Treatment in this phase I trial will be administered until there is disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

The investigators hypothesize that opioid use in African-Americans will be associated with hypodopaminergic alleles that alter the threshold for activating feelings of reward and pleasure within the dopaminergic system, and that these allelic frequencies will differ significantly from European Americans. Planned is a targeted system to study genetic risks for reward deficiency using risk gene panel to assign a genetic addiction risk score (GARS), comprehensive surveys to determine quality of life and exposure to stressors and trauma. This system will allow prediction of addiction and relapse potential and delivery of personalized treatment.
