Phase N/A

Prehabilitation in Patients With Esophageal or Gastric Cancers

Objectives: The primary objective of this study is to assess the feasibility of a internet-based preoperative exercise program in patients with esophageal or gastric cancers. Secondary objectives are to evaluate the effects of this preoperative program on functional capacity, anxiety and depression, quality of life, fatigue and markers of inflammation. ...

Phase N/A

Endodrill vs. Conventional Biopsy. Diagnostics and Genetic Analysis

Endodrill is a newly constructed biopsy tool for flexible endoscopic use. It uses a drilling motion within a casing to harvest solid biopsies from tissue through the biopsy channel of a conventional flexible endoscope. It was originally designed for sampling of tissue from submucosal lesions. The investigators first study of ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Preventive Effect of Chlorhexidine Acetate Gargle for Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Infection After ESD

The investigator proposed to gargle patients with chlorhexidine acetate before ESD to improve the oral microenvironment and reduce the pathogenic bacteria in the oral cavity. The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the preventive effect of chlorhexidine acetate gargle on the infection of early upper gastrointestinal cancer after ...

Phase N/A

Effectiveness of a Rehabilitation Program in Improving Quality of Life in Patients With Esophageal Cancer

This study will investigate the effectiveness of a rehabilitation program in improving sleep quality, emotional distress, circadian rhythms, and quality of life in patients with esophageal cancer in Taiwan. Hypothesis The quality of life in exercise group is significant improving than usual-care group at 3rd, 6th, 12th, 24th, and 36th ...

Phase N/A

Timing of Resective Surgery After Neoadjuvant Chemoradiotherapy in Esophageal Cancer

This study compares outcomes with regard to the timing of resective surgery after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in cancer of the esophagus or gastric cardia. Patients are randomised to surgery either conventional 4-6 or 10-12 weeks after termination of CRT. The study hypothesis is that a longer delay improves histological response ...

Phase N/A

Endoesophageal Brachytherapy for Patients With Esophageal Cancer

Primary Objective Pilot study of multichannel endoesophageal brachytherapy applicator to determine dose distribution and conformality of a 6 channel balloon repositioning applicator. Secondary Objective(s) To collect data in order to show how the 6-tube endoesophageal brachytherapy technique will be an improvement (more conformed dose distribution) over a previously designed 3-tube ...

Phase N/A

Intra-individual Comparison of Conventional and Digital PET/CT Scanners

There will be a single injection of the PET radiopharmaceutical FDG, followed by a conventional PET/CT scan and a digital PET scan, in this order or vice versa.

Phase N/A

Organ Motion and Early Tumor Response Measurement

A single center prospective observational study will be performed in esophageal cancer patients. This study registers motion of the esophageal tumor, using 4D planning CT scans and repeated 4D CBCT scanning. Motion of fiducial markers inserted into the esophageal wall, will be used as a surrogate for tumor motion in ...
