Phase N/A

Endoscopic Prevention of Esophageal Cancer at Tenwek Hospital

Esophageal squamous dysplasia (ESD) is the precursor lesion of esophageal squamous cell cancer. ESD causes no symptoms but can be detected by screening. ESD may harbor various grades of dysplasia. Patients with moderate grade or high grade dysplasia (MGD or HGD) have up to a 40-fold increased risk of esophageal ...

Phase N/A

International Nutrition Audit in FORegut TuMors

The proposed project is a prospective inception cohort study of current nutrition practices of patients with foregut tumors (esophageal and/or head & neck cancer) in cancer care settings in Canada, Europe and Australia. This multi center study will involve a baseline audit of current nutrition practice, followed by repeated audit ...

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 epithelium from ...
