HAI Via Interventionally Implanted Port Catheter Systems

Inclusion criteria: - histologically confirmed hepatic cancer without symptomatic extrahepatic manifestation. - non-resectable disease or hepatic resection or ablation in between the past 8 weeks. - measurable disease (at least before hepatic resection) - Karnofsky performance status => 70%, or ECOG status 0-2 - >18 years of age - life ...

Phase

Irinotecan With or Without Panitumumab or Cyclosporine in Treating Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Colorectal Cancer That Did Not Respond to Fluorouracil

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare the efficacy and toxicity of single-agent irinotecan hydrochloride (Ir) vs Ir with cyclosporine (IrC) in patients with fluorouracil-resistant advanced colorectal cancer. - Compare the efficacy of single-agent Ir vs Ir with panitumumab (IrP) in these patients. Secondary - Correlate the toxicity of Ir and/or IrC with ...

Phase

Radiation Therapy Irinotecan and Cetuximab in Treating Patients Who Are Undergoing Surgery for Stage III or Stage IV Rectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the toxicity of irinotecan hydrochloride and cetuximab in patients with stage III or IV rectal cancer undergoing conformal or intensity-modulated radiotherapy. Secondary - Determine the rate of pathologic response and histological degree of tumor regression in patients treated with this regimen. - Determine the complete resection ...

Phase

Chemotherapy and Internal Radiation in Treating Patients With Colorectal Cancer That Has Spread to the Liver

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Evaluate the tumor response, as measured by total tumor mass, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level, measurable tumor volume by CT scan, and metabolic response by positron emission tomography (PET) scan, in patients with colorectal cancer metastatic to the liver undergoing chemotherapy and selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) comprising ...

Phase

Sentinel Node in Colon Cancer

More than 20% of patients operated on for colon cancer without node metastasis will develop visceral metastases. The purpose of the study is to determine sentinel lymph nodes with two methods: blue injection and isotopic detection. Sentinel nodes will then be analyzed by immunohistochemy to detect micrometastases. No adjuvant therapy ...

Phase N/A

Acupuncture in Reducing Ileus in Patients Who Have Undergone Surgery for Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine whether a phase III study of acupuncture for postoperative recovery after colorectal surgery is warranted, as defined by evidence of reduction of postoperative ileus in patients who undergo acupuncture vs sham acupuncture after segmental or subtotal colectomy with primary anastomosis for colorectal cancer. Secondary - Determine ...

Phase

Biomarkers and Radiation Side Effects in Patients Undergoing Radiation Therapy for Gastrointestinal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine if tumor-specific DNA mutations and aberrant DNA methylation can be detected in the serum, urine, or stool at the time of diagnosis in patients undergoing radiotherapy for gastrointestinal malignancies. - Determine if changes in mutational status at follow up are associated with disease persistence, recurrence, or ...

Phase N/A

Surgery Plus Intraoperative Peritoneal Hyperthermic Chemotherapy (IPHC) to Treat Peritoneal Carcinomatosis

DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: - Histologically confirmed peritoneal carcinomatosis with the following histologies: - Primary peritoneal mesothelioma - Adenocarcinoma of gastrointestinal tract origin - Confined to peritoneal cavity - Tumor mass could be debulked to less than 2.5 cm in diameter per tumor deposit - Must not have failed prior intraperitoneal platinum ...

Phase

Evaluation of NiTi Shape Memory End-to-End Compression Anastomosis Ring (CAR) for Compression Anastomosis in Anterior Resection

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the NiTi CAR device in the creation of colorectal anastomosis

Phase

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Cetuximab Before and After Surgery in Treating Patients With Resectable Liver Metastases Caused By Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare progression-free survival of patients with resectable colorectal liver metastases treated with neoadjuvant and adjuvant combination chemotherapy with vs without cetuximab. Secondary - Compare the overall survival of patients treated with these regimens. - Compare the quality of life of patients treated with these regimens. - Compare ...
