IoN- Is Ablative Radio-iodine Necessary for Low Risk Differentiated Thyroid Cancer Patients

Phase II: to determine if recruitment into a phase III trial is feasible, with a target of 10 patients per month during a minimum of 6 months (evaluated within months 7-18 of the trial). Phase III: to determine whether the 5-year disease-free survival rate among patients who do not have ...


Sentinel Lymphnode in Patients With Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma and in Patients With Suspected Thyroid Neoplasia

The standard surgical treatment for highly differentiated papillary thyroid cancer > 10 mm according to recent national and international guidelines, is total thyroidectomy and central lymphnode clearance, and for patients with cytology indicating thyroid neoplasia of unclear malignant potential hemithyroidectomy on the side of the tumour. There are however a ...

Phase N/A

Laser Mucite ORL : Effectiveness of Laser Therapy for Mucositis Induced by a Radio-chemotherapy in Head and Neck Cancer

This is a Phase III randomized, double-blind, multicenter study, with two groups of patients receiving radiotherapy and concomitant chemotherapy. The patients will be randomized as follows: Arm A = patients will receive a preventive and curative treatment by low-energy laser, and arm B = a control group treated with standard ...


Genetic Analysis of Pheochromocytomas Paragangliomas and Associated Conditions

Pheochromocytoma and paragangliomas are tumors originated from neuroectoderm cells located in the adrenal or extra-adrenal paraganglia, often leading to increased secretion of hormones known as catecholamines. These tumors represent a potentially curable cause of hypertension and are malignant in about 10-15% of the cases. Approximately 40% of patients with pheochromocytomas ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Data Collection of Patients Treated With Proton Therapy for Head and Neck Malignancies

If you agree to take part in this study, information will be collected from your medical records that is related to your personal medical history, diagnosis, and the treatment you received or are scheduled to receive for head and neck cancer. The information from your medical record will be collected ...

Phase N/A

A Gene Hunting Study for Familial Papillary Thyroid Cancer

The aim of this project is to identify genetic risk factors associated with familial papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). This can be accomplished in several ways, including loss of heterozygosity studies as well as comparative gene expression analysis. When possible, linkage analysis on families with multiple individuals affected with PTC may ...

Phase N/A

Vandetanib in Preventing Head and Neck Cancer in Patients With Precancerous Head and Neck Lesions

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: I. Determine the effect of ZD6474 (vandetanib) compared to placebo on microvessel density (MVD) from baseline to 3 months in patients at risk for oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) with preneoplastic lesions. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Change in MVD over 6 months. II. Change in putative targets of ZD6474: ...


Trail Evaluating Apatinib With IMRT for Inoperable or Iodine Refractory Thyroid Cancer

To determine the efficacy and safety of intensity modulated radiation therapy combined with apatinib for inoperable or iodine refractory thyroid cancer.


Image Guided Surgery for Margin Assessment of Head and Neck Cancer Using Cetuximab-IRDye800CW cONjugate

Surgery remains a main pillar in the treatment of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The margin status is the main prognostic factor of local tumor control in surgically treated HNSCC and will determine the postoperative treatment strategy. A margin of 1 mm of normal tissue is considered a ...


Study of PET Imaging With 18F-TFB in Patients With Thyroid Cancer

The goal of the study is to evaluate a new imaging test that may allows the investigators to predict the uptake of radioactive iodine by thyroid cancer faster than the current standard and that does not interfere with the uptake of radioactive iodine used for therapy.
