Study of Individuals and Families at High Risk for Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - Identify individuals at high risk of cancer, especially due to personal or family medical history. - Evaluate and define clinical spectrum of disease in syndromes predisposing to cancer. - Quantify risks of tumors in family members. - Map, clone, and determine function of tumor susceptibility genes. - Identify ...

Phase N/A

Specimen and Data Study for Ovarian Cancer Early Detection and Prevention

OBJECTIVES To identify and develop highly sensitive and specific tumor markers for the detection and management of ovarian cancer and other gynecological malignancies. To identify new prevention approaches and therapies. To identify measures to improve the quality of life for women at increased risk for developing the disease and for ...

Phase N/A

Screening Patients for NCI Protocol Eligibility

Background Patients and healthy volenteerswho are being evaluated for NIH Intramural Research Program (IRP) protocols must be screened to determine whether they meet the eligibility criteria prior to enrollment. Performing invasive procedures for the sole purpose of obtaining tissue specimens or biological fluids for research purposes is often not ethically ...

Phase N/A

Collection of Blood From Patients With Cancer

Background Correlative studies performed on biospecimens of human subjects can be used to investigate the biology of solid tumors, inform the development of new strategies for treating those cancers, and evaluate these new therapeutic approaches. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to: the underlying mechanisms of tumor-specific ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Treatment Response With Integrated MRI/PET in Patients With Hepatocellular Carcinoma

This study using 18F-FDG PET and functional MRI (DCE-MRI, Diffusion-weighted MRI, MR spectroscopy).

Phase N/A

Mobilization of Mesenchymal Stem Cells During Liver Transplantation

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a known immune modulator with significant immunosuppressive effects. MSCs have emerged as a promising frontier in human clinical trials. MSCs have been shown to be non-immunogenic making them capable of transplantation across allogeneic barrier. These qualities make MSCs an ideal candidate to study if they ...

Phase N/A

Combined Modality Therapy in Hepatoblastoma: South Egypt Cancer Institute Experience

Background Hepatoblastoma (HB) is the most common malignant liver tumor in children, with an incidence of 0.7 to 1 per million children <15 years of age. Till 1970s, surgery was the primary modality of treatment of HB. Unfortunately, up to 60% of the patients present in an unresectable stage. Later, ...

Phase N/A

Correlation Between CT Perfusion and Post Y-90 TARE PET/CT Dosimetry

The overreaching goal of this line of research is to establish a methodology to produce patient and tumor specific treatment planning for Yttrium-90 radioembolization of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The proposed project will facilitate the collection of preliminary data to support a larger study to more fully establish the relationship between ...

Phase N/A

Identification of Biomarkers Associated With Human Hepatocellular Carcinoma by SELDI

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been the leading cause of cancer death in Taiwan. Above 6000-8000 people died of this cancer every year in Taiwan. Though regular sonographic examination can early detect small HCC and there are many therapeutic modalities for HCC, the therapeutic results remains unsatisfactory. Though Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and ...

Phase N/A

Searching for the Liver Cancer-Related Biomarkers

Cell lines Hep3B and Huh7 HCC cell lines will be cultured in (Dulbecco’s modified Eagle medium) DMEM containing 10% fetal calf serum and incubated at 37 C in 5% CO2 incubator. The rationale of using HCC cell line instead of clinical HCC samples is that HCC tissues are heterogeneous and ...
