Studying Genes for Barrett's Esophagus in Brothers and Sisters

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To investigate the familial incidence of heartburn and Barrett's esophagus in first and second degree relatives of patients with Barrett's esophagus in the United Kingdom. - To determine susceptibility genes for Barrett's esophagus in affected sibling pairs. - To examine gene-environment interactions, such as smoking, alcohol, and ...

Fluorouracil Cisplatin Cetuximab and Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Esophageal Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To determine the maximum tolerated dose of fluorouracil and cisplatin when administered with cetuximab concurrently with esophageal radiotherapy. (Phase I) - To determine the complete histological response rate (after surgical resection). (Phase II) Secondary - To determine progression-free survival and overall survival. (Phase II) - To determine ...

Identifying Genetic Markers for Esophageal Cancer and Stomach Cancer in Chinese Populations

OBJECTIVES: - Examine the role of genetics in the etiology and prevention of esophageal and gastric cancer in Chinese populations. - Identify potential early genetic markers of susceptibility for esophageal and gastric cancer. OUTLINE: - Tumor/nontumor study: Patients complete a 1-hour questionnaire about their general background, medical history, family history ...

Phase N/A

Erlotinib in Treating Patients With Barrett Esophagus

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To determine if erlotinib hydrochloride can be used as a chemopreventive agent that can cause histologic regression of Barrett esophagus in patients at high risk of developing esophageal cancer associated with high-grade dysplasia. Secondary - To assess whether erlotinib hydrochloride can cause molecular alterations in EGFR, phospho-EGFR, ...

Barrett's Esophagus Related Neoplasia (BERN) Project

B. BACKGROUND AND SIGNIFICANCE Burden of disease Barrett's esophagus (BE) is an acquired condition resulting from chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease and is a well recognized pre-malignant condition for the development of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) (1, 2). BE is defined as the displacement of the squamocolumnar junction proximal to the gastroesophageal ...

Phase N/A

Biological Factors in Predicting Response to Treatment in Patients With Esophageal Cancer or Rectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Analyze various biological factors that can be used as markers to predict response to treatment and correlate with the signaling pathway of EGFR. Secondary - Establish a tissue bank to store information about the response to treatment and survival. OUTLINE: Patients undergo endoscopy, 11 biopsies of tumor ...

Phase N/A

Endoesophageal Cryotherapy For Ablating Barrett's Esophagus and Early Stage Esophageal Cancer

Baseline evaluation will include the following ( all are considered standard of care except # 8 ): 1. Informed consent. 2. Evaluation of inclusion/exclusion criteria 3. Demographics- date of birth, age, gender, ethnicity 4. Medical history and physical exam 5. Imaging (groups 2, 3 and 4) i. CT scan of ...

Combination of Chemoradiation Therapy and Epitope Peptide Vaccine Therapy in Treating Patients With Esophageal Cancer

Up-regulated ling cancer 10 (URLC10), TTK protein kinase (TTK) and K homology domain containing protein over expressed in cancer (KOC1) were identified as new targets of tumor associated antigens using cDNA microarray technologies combined with the expression profiles of normal and cancer tissues. Furthermore, anti-angiogenic therapy is now considered to ...

Phase

S-1 Cisplatin and Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage IIA Stage III or Stage IVA Esophageal Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To evaluate response rate in patients with stage IIA-IVA resectable esophageal cancer treated with chemoradiotherapy comprising S-1, cisplatin, and radiotherapy. Secondary - To evaluate overall survival of these patients. - To evaluate progression-free survival of these patients. - To evaluate toxicity in these patients. - To correlate ...

Phase / Study of URLC10-177 and TTK-567 Peptide Vaccine Combined With CpG7909 in Patients With Esophageal Cancer

phase I: Patients will be vaccinated on day 1,8,15 and 22 of each 28-day treatment cycles. On each vaccination day, the URLC10-117 peptide(1mg) and TTK-567 peptide(1mg) mixed with CpG 7909 (escalating doses: 0, 0.02, 0.1mg/kg) emulsified with Montanide ISA 51 will be administered by subcutaneous injection. Repeated cycles of vaccine ...
