Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy Containing Paclitaxel&Cisplatin With/Without Tarceva in Locally Advanced Esophageal Cancer

For the esophageal carcinoma in II~III stage, routine dosage of Paclitaxel and platinum medicine chemotherapy concurrently radical radiotherapy is worthy to be studied. On this base, we advanced approach the enlarged field radiotherapy and the intervention of Tarceva. And we approach the therapeutic effect for this method theoretically, which may ...

Phase

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: ...

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 ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase

Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Esophageal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - Compare survival and quality of life of patients with resectable adenocarcinoma of the esophagus treated prior to surgery with standard chemotherapy comprising cisplatin and fluorouracil versus prolonged infusional chemotherapy comprising cisplatin, epirubicin, and fluorouracil. OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are randomized to one of two ...

Phase

Tisotumab Vedotin (HuMax -TF-ADC) Safety Study in Patients With Solid Tumors

The study is conducted in two parts. The dose escalation portion of the trial subjects are enrolled into cohorts at increasing dose levels of tisotumab vedotin (HuMax-TF-ADC) in 28 day treatment cycles. In the Cohort Expansion part of the trial, will further explore the recommended phase 2 dose of tisotumab ...

Phase

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

Esophageal Cancer Genetics Studies

The overall goal of this project is to understand the role of genetics in the etiology and prevention of upper gastrointestinal cancer, primarily esophageal cancer, but also cancers of the gastric cardia and body. Esophageal cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer death in China and the seventh ...

Phase N/A

Early Detection of Esophageal Cancer

Esophageal cancer is a common malignancy with a very poor prognosis. The principal reason for its poor prognosis is that most tumors are asymptomatic and go undetected until they have spread beyond the esophageal wall and are unresectable. Significant reduction in esophageal cancer mortality will require successful strategies to diagnose ...
