Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Study of S-1 in Patients With Digestive Organ Cancer

S-1 is a novel oral fluorouracil antitumor drug that consists of tegafur which is a prodrug of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU); 5-chloro-2,4-dihydropyridine (CDHP), which inhibits dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) activity; and potassium oxonate (Oxo), which reduces gastrointestinal toxicity. 5-FU is metabolized by CYP2A6 and DPD. In this study, the researchers investigate the influences ...

Determination of the Role of Microarray for Prognosis and Prediction to Chemotherapy Sensitivity in Patients With Operable Locally Advanced and Metastatic Oesophageal Cancer

Knowledge of the impact of gene expression profiling could allow optimisation of chemotherapy regimens for individual patients. It could ensure that patients do not receive a particular form of chemotherapy if it is unlikely to benefit them, and in these circumstances an alternative form of chemotherapy that may prove beneficial ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Cell Changes in Blood and Tissue in Cancers of the Lung Esophagus and Lung Lining

Background: -Lung and esophageal cancers as well as malignant pleural mesotheliomas exhibit profound alterations in chromatin structure, which may impact the clinical course of these neoplasms. -To date, epigenetic alterations in primary thoracic malignancies and neoplasms metastatic to the chest have not been evaluated in a systematic manner. Objectives: - ...

Phase N/A

Outcomes After Esophagectomy With a Focus on Minimally Invasive Esophagectomy and Quality of Life

Assess short and long term outcomes after minimally invasive esophagectomy(MIE) compared to open esophagectomy. Measure standard observer derived outcomes such as morbidity, mortality, tumor recurrence and also patient derived outcomes, in particular quality of life (QOL) using the MOS SF36 questionnaire. Evaluate whether the SF36 will accurately reflect pre and ...

Phase N/A

Esophageal Cancer Risk Registry

We will enroll patients with esophageal cancer, patients who are at risk for developing esophageal cancer, and patients who have a non-cancerous esophageal disorder. All patients will be asked to fill out a questionnaire about their general health and personal habits, and about their relatives' medical history; this will be ...

Phase N/A

Familial Barrett's Esophagus

This research study is trying to determine whether Barrett's esophagus and associated esophageal cancers, specifically esophageal adenocarcinoma are inherited in certain families. Persons who are affected with Barrett's esophagus or esophageal cancer (adenocarcinoma type) are asked to complete a questionnaire that determines their habits and asks a detailed family history. ...

Phase N/A

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: ...

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 ...
