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 ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers and Radiation Side Effects in Patients Undergoing Radiation Therapy for Gastrointestinal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine if tumor-specific DNA mutations and aberrant DNA methylation can be detected in the serum, urine, or stool at the time of diagnosis in patients undergoing radiotherapy for gastrointestinal malignancies. - Determine if changes in mutational status at follow up are associated with disease persistence, recurrence, or ...

Phase N/A

Study of Genes and Environment in Patients With Cancer in East Anglia Trent or West Midlands Regions of the United Kingdom

OBJECTIVES: - To obtain epidemiological information and biological material on a population-based series of cancer cases, including malignant melanoma, lymphoma, bladder, kidney, esophageal, and pancreatic cancer, and brain tumors. - Identify novel cancer susceptibility genes, by comparison of genotype frequencies in cases with the corresponding frequencies in large control series. ...

Phase N/A

Study of Tissue Samples in Predicting How Well Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy Will Kill Cancer Cells in Patients With Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Esophagus

OBJECTIVES: - To search for chemoradiosensitivity-related genes using a pre-treatment biopsy sample in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma treated with cisplatin, fluorouracil, and concurrent radiotherapy. - To establish an algorithm for prediction of chemoradiosensitivity in these patients. OUTLINE: Patients receive 1 of the following treatment regimens: - Regimen 1: ...

Phase N/A

Trial of Enteral Nutrition Enriched With Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) in Upper Gastrointestinal Cancer Surgery

Title A double blinded randomized controlled trial to investigate the effects of an enteral nutritional supplement enriched with Eicosapentaenoic acid on long term nutritional status post operatively specifically the maintenance of lean body mass, and its potential impact on quality of life as well as examining the stress response and ...


Epirubicin Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine or Docetaxel and Oxaliplatin in Treating Patients With Advanced Esophageal Cancer Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer or Stomach Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare the response rate in patients with advanced esophageal, gastroesophageal junction, or gastric cancer treated with epirubicin hydrochloride, oxaliplatin, and capecitabine vs docetaxel and oxaliplatin. Secondary - Compare the time to progression, survival, and quality of life of patients treated with these regimens. - Compare the toxicities ...


Standard Follow-Up Program (SFP) for Patients With Esophageal Cancer

Motive In order to improve the treatment technique, a comprehensive follow-up program is needed to obtain all relevant patient, treatment and toxicity data from esophageal cancer patients. Goal To set-up and maintain a database containing treatment results in terms of tumor control, side effects, complications and patient-reported quality of life. ...

Phase N/A

A Study of DKN-01 in Combination With Paclitaxel or Pembrolizumab

Part A is a Dose-Escalation Study in Participants with Relapsed or Refractory Esophageal Cancer or Gastro-Esophageal Junction Tumors. Parts B, C, D and E are expansion cohorts of Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Esophageal Cancer, Gastro-Esophageal Junction Tumors and Gastric Adenocarcinoma. Part F is a Dose-Escalation and Expansion Cohorts with ...


MR/PET in the Evaluation of Patients With Esophageal Cancer

Total 80 patients will be recruited and followed after treatment complete for at least two years. We will compare the staging accuracy of MR/PET and PET/CT, and also analyze parameters that are predictive of disease recurrence and patient survival.

Phase N/A

Different Cycles of Cisplatin-5-fluorouracil for the Chemoradiotherapy of Esophageal Squamous Cancer

We plan to recruit the patients who were pathologically confirmed with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma from the Oct 2014. The patients will be divided into two groups.Experimental group: Two cycles of cisplatin plus 5-fluorouracil concurrent radiotherapy.Control group:Four cycles of cisplatin plus 5-fluorouracil and concurrent radiotherapy.To evaluate the overall survival of ...
