Found (32) clinical trials

People with Esophageal or Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer are asked to participate in a research study being conducted by Montefiore Medical Center.

Phase N/A

Endoscopic-vacuum Assisted Closure of Intrathoracic Postsurgical Leaks

Intrathoracic leakage is a serious complication after esophageal surgery. The reported incidence of esophageal anastomotic leaks after gastrectomy and esophagectomy ranges from 5% to almost 30%. Within the last 10 years endoscopic treatment has changed the approach to intrathoracic anastomotic leakages. Application of metal clips, injection of fibrin glue and ...

Phase N/A

Gastrointestinal Biomarkers in Tissue and Biological Fluid Samples From Patients and Healthy Participants Undergoing Colonoscopy Endoscopy or Surgery

OBJECTIVES: - Identify new potential biomarkers of increased gastrointestinal cancer risk using tissue and biofluid samples from patients and healthy volunteers undergoing colonoscopy, endoscopy, or surgery. - Develop new screening strategies based on substances found in tissue and biofluid samples. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients and healthy volunteers ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers in Patients With Respiratory Tract Dysplasia or Lung Cancer Head and Neck Cancer or Aerodigestive Tract Cancer and in Normal Volunteers

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine intermediate biomarkers of premalignant respiratory epithelial lesions, such as genetic mutations or altered growth factor expression, in patients with dysplasia of the respiratory epithelium or lung cancer, head and neck cancer, or aerodigestive tract cancer. Secondary - Establish a tissue repository of normal and dysplastic respiratory ...

Phase N/A

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) Oncology Registry

Participating centers will need to describe its own mechanism for patient identification and eligibility screening. A data manager, identified by the Principal Investigator at each participating center, will screen all patients for eligibility. Appointment, diagnosis and treatment data will be reviewed using information such as clinic records, appointment lists, pathology ...

Phase N/A

Removal of the Evolution Esophageal Stent - Fully Covered

The CLARITY study is a clinical trial approved by US FDA to study the removal of the Evolution® Esophageal Stent-Fully Covered in malignant and benign indications.

Phase N/A

Esophageal Cancer Genetics Studies

The overall goal of this project is to understand the role of genetics in the etiology and prevention of upper gastrointestinal cancer, primarily esophageal cancer, but also cancers of the gastric cardia and body. Esophageal cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer death in China and the seventh ...

Phase N/A

Early Detection of Esophageal Cancer

Esophageal cancer is a common malignancy with a very poor prognosis. The principal reason for its poor prognosis is that most tumors are asymptomatic and go undetected until they have spread beyond the esophageal wall and are unresectable. Significant reduction in esophageal cancer mortality will require successful strategies to diagnose ...

Phase N/A

Predicting Risk of Cancer in Barrett's Esophagus

Patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) have an increased risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma which is 40-125 fold higher than in the general population. However, the current techniques of detecting dysplasia and observing abnormal p53 immunohistochemical staining are not accurate or reliable methods for determining which BE patients will progress to cancer. ...

Phase N/A

Study of Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Esophageal Cancer Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma Mediastinal or Chest Wall Neoplasms or Lung Metastases From Cancers of Non-Thoracic Origin

OBJECTIVES: - Evaluate patients referred to the Thoracic Oncology Section of the Surgery Branch, NCI in order to identify patients who are suitable candidates for clinical research protocols. - Obtain biopsies during staging studies of tumor and adjacent normal tissues as well as serum and urine samples from patients with ...
