Early Diagnosis of Lung Cancer and Mesothelioma in Prior Asbestos Workers

Background and Purpose: Asbestos exposure may result in several different diseases to the lung and to the lining of the lung, the so-called pleura. Mostly they are benign, but there are two common malignant diseases in people with prior asbestos exposure, the so-called mesothelioma - which originates from the pleura ...

Phase N/A

Tissue Procurement and Natural History Study of Patients With Malignant Mesothelioma

Background Malignant mesothelioma is a malignancy arising from the mesothelial cells of the pleura, peritoneum, pericardium, or tunica vaginalis. Mesothelioma accounts for 0.10% of deaths annually in the United States. Malignant pleural mesothelioma is the most common of these, comprising of 80% of the cases with an annual incidence of ...

Phase N/A

Chest Wall Motion Analysis in Disease

Optoelectronic plethysmography (OEP) is based on the analysis during breathing of the trajectories of a series of markers positioned on the thoracic-abdominal surface of the patient. The positions in space of these markers are recorded and processed with mathematical models and algorithms by a computing unit that can accurately measure ...

MesoTRAP: A Study Comparing Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Partial Pleurectomy/Decortication With Indwelling Pleural Catheter in Patients With Trapped Lung Due to Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma.

This is a multi-centre, open-label, randomised controlled pilot clinical trial and feasibility study comparing video-assisted thoracoscopic partial pleurectomy/decortication (VAT-PD) with indwelling pleural catheter (IPC) in patients with trapped lung (TL) and pleural effusion due to malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), aimed at addressing recruitment and randomisation uncertainties as well as sample ...

Phase N/A

Tissue Procurement for Gastric Cancer Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST) Esophageal Cancer Pancreas Cancer Hepatocellular Cancer Biliary Cancer Neuroendocrine Peritoneal Mesothelioma Anal Cancer and Colorectal Cancer in Patients Undergoing Surgery or Biopsy

The purpose of this study is to collect and store normal and malignant tissue from patients with gastric cancer, GIST, esophageal cancer, pancreas cancer, hepatocellular cancer, biliary cancer, neuroendocrine, peritoneal mesothelioma, anal cancer and colorectal cancer, an estimated 50 to 100 of each tumor type. To collect and store blood ...

Phase N/A

International Registry of Patients Treated With Pressurized IntraPeritoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC)

All data entered into the registry documenting the patient cohort characteristics (disease, demography, therapy) are analyzed using descriptive statistics. Survival data are analyzed with Kaplan-Meier statistics. Multivariate Cox Proportional Hazard Models are used to identify potential prognostic and predictive factors. In particular, a risk- adjusted comparison of the outcome criteria ...

Phase N/A

Intrapleural Cryotherapy for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

Patients that have been diagnosed, or are suspected of having malignant pleural mesothelioma, a cancer of the pleura, surgery may be considered as an attempt to treat the cancer. As part of the testing needed before surgery, a pleuroscopy or video camera examination of the pleura is necessary to establish ...

Phase N/A

Rapid Autopsy and Procurement of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Tissue

Background Despite being the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide, there is only limited knowledge of tumor heterogeneity in lung cancer. There is also limited knowledge of tumor heterogeneity of other less common thoracic malignancies, such as thymic epithelial tumors and mesothelioma. Tumor heterogeneity can be evaluated in a comprehensive ...

Phase N/A

Accelerated Hypofractionated Radiotherapy in the Treatment of Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

The role of radiation therapy remains to be defined in unresected MPM or after P/D. For the latter, local control remains the primary objective but radiotherapy (RT) is a challenge because of the risk of pneumonia in the intact lung. There are no specific clinical data to support the use ...

Phase N/A

Surgery for Mesothelioma After Radiation Therapy "SMART" for Resectable Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

The purpose of this study is to determine whether radiation therapy decreases tumor size and tumor spread. The investigators will consent subjects that have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and will undergo radiation therapy followed by surgical resection as their standard of care. The investigators will collect data from past and ...
