Gastrointestinal Biomarkers in Tissue and Biological Fluid Samples From Patients and Healthy Participants Undergoing Colonoscopy Endoscopy or Surgery

OBJECTIVES: - Identify new potential biomarkers of increased gastrointestinal cancer risk using tissue and biofluid samples from patients and healthy volunteers undergoing colonoscopy, endoscopy, or surgery. - Develop new screening strategies based on substances found in tissue and biofluid samples. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients and healthy volunteers ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

Chemoradiation-Induced Nausea and Emesis: Quality of Life

You will be interviewed about your perceptions of side effects that are related to your chemoradiation treatment. The interview will take about 20 minutes. You will be interviewed at the beginning of your chemoradiation treatment, 3 weeks after treatment starts, and at the first follow-up appointment after chemoradiation treatment ends. ...

Phase N/A

Predicting Risk of Cancer in Barrett's Esophagus

Patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) have an increased risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma which is 40-125 fold higher than in the general population. However, the current techniques of detecting dysplasia and observing abnormal p53 immunohistochemical staining are not accurate or reliable methods for determining which BE patients will progress to cancer. ...

Phase N/A

Identifying Genetic Markers for Esophageal Cancer and Stomach Cancer in Chinese Populations

OBJECTIVES: - Examine the role of genetics in the etiology and prevention of esophageal and gastric cancer in Chinese populations. - Identify potential early genetic markers of susceptibility for esophageal and gastric cancer. OUTLINE: - Tumor/nontumor study: Patients complete a 1-hour questionnaire about their general background, medical history, family history ...

Phase N/A

Immunohistochemical & Immunoblot Analysis of NIS (Na+/I-Symporter) in Archival & Frozen Tissue Sample

The objective of the study is to further understanding of proteins that occur in both normal cells and tumor cells and to learn more about certain diseases and potential alternative treatments for these diseases.

Phase N/A

Anonymous Testing of Pathology Specimens for BRCA Mutations in Ashkenazi Jewish Individuals Who Have Cancer

Germline mutations in the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 have been demonstrated in the majority of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer families. The increased risk to develop both breast and ovarian cancer associated with inheriting a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation has been well established. It has also been suggested that is ...
