Simultaneous Modulated Accelerated Boost Versus Standard Dose Radiotherapy in Esophageal Cancer

This randomized phase III trial is to compare simultaneous modulated accelerated boost with standard dose radiotherapy given together with chemotherapy in treating patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Phase

Robot-assisted IVOR-LEWIS Esophagectomy

This confirmatory, nonrandomized, single-arm trial (phase II) will be conducted to evaluate short-and long-term outcomes of robot-assisted thoraco- laparoscopic minimally invasive esophagectomy for esophageal cancer. Patients will registered preoperatively. The planned sample size was 51. Preoperative endoscopic biopsy was performed in all patients to confirm the histological diagnosis of esophageal ...

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

Intratreatment FDG-PET During Radiation Therapy for Gynecologic and Gastrointestinal Cancers

Intra-treatment PETs have only recently been studied in small pilot series. In rectal cancer, a prospective trial from MSKCC demonstrated that a PET-CT obtained in the second week of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy was able to discriminate sub-optimal responders with a sensitivity of 94% and an accuracy of 78%, though the most ...

Phase

Study of SHR-1210 Versus Investigator's Choice Standard Therapy for Participants With Advanced Esophageal Cancer

In this study, participants with advanced or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus that has progressed after first-line standard therapy will be randomized to receive either single agent SHR-1210 or the Investigator's choice of standard therapy with docetaxel or irinotecan. The primary study hypothesis is that treatment with SHR-1210 ...

Phase

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

Ph1b Study of Oraxol in Comb. w. Ramucirumab in Patients w. Gastric Gastro-esophageal or Esophageal Cancers

This is a sequential-group, dose escalation trial to determine the maximum tolerated dose of oral Oraxol in combination with intravenous ramucirumab. After a screening period of up to 28 days subjects will be enrolled into the treatment phase of the study. Each cycle of therapy will last 4 weeks. Subjects ...

Phase

APX005M With Concurrent Chemoradiation for Resectable Esophageal and Gastroesophageal Junction Cancers

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To establish the safety and feasibility of combining APX005M with standard-of-care chemoradiation (external beam radiation in daily fractions, with concurrent weekly low-dose carboplatin/paclitaxel) in the neoadjuvant setting for patients with resectable esophageal and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancers. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the efficacy of this novel ...

Phase

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

FLOTOR Pilot Study

The thoracic duct is the largest vessel of the lymphatic system in the body. It transports chyle (a liquid containing both lymph and emulsified fats) from most of the body, including the gastrointestinal tract, into the left internal jugular vein. It is largely located in the thorax and is at ...
