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

Human (Autologous) Oral Mucosal Cell Sheet Transplantation After ESD in Patients With Superficial Esophageal Cancer

This study is a multicenter, single-arm, open-label study of CLS2702C/D in patients who plan to undergo ESD for superficial esophageal cancer. In this study, the efficacy and safety of CLS2702C (cell sheet) transplanted (applied) to the wound site after ESD using CLS2702D (transplantation device) will be evaluated.

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

Tethered Capsule Endoscope in Screening Participants for Barrett Esophagus

OBJECTIVES: - To determine the clinical feasibility of obtaining endoscopic esophageal images using a tethered capsule endoscope (TCE). (Phase I) - To determine the optimal weight and possibly shape for rapid patient ingestion and extraction of the TCE. (Phase I) - To determine the optimal tether design (e.g., rigidity, distance ...

Quality of Life in Neoadjuvant Versus Adjuvant Therapy of Esophageal Cancer Treatment Trial

Patients will be randomized to neo-adjuvant or adjuvant treatment. Quality of life questionnaires will be completed every 2 months up to 1 year.

Phase

Trial of Docetaxel Cisplatin Fluorouracil (5-FU) for Unresectable Advanced Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma (ESCC)

Primary Objective: To establish the safety of combination chemotherapy comprising docetaxel (escalating doses: 25,30,35,40 mg/m2,day1 and day8), cisplatin (12mg/m2,day1-5), and fluorouracil (600mg/m2,day1-5) (DCF) in unresectable advanced esophageal cancer. Secondary Objective: To observe the efficacy of this regimen in these patients. Primary Objective: To assess the response rate of combination chemotherapy ...

A Study of Patients Receiving High-Dose Rate Brachytherapy

BACKGROUND: - High dose rate brachytherapy (HDR) is a challenging technique utilized in many malignancies in order to deliver a high dose of radiation therapy to a tumor in a conformal fashion with a rapid dose fall-off with the objective of sparing normal surrounding tissue - HDR therapy has been ...
