Ascertainment of Peripheral Blood or Saliva Samples for Genetic Epidemiology Studies of Familial Cancers

Patients can provide either a blood or saliva sample for the protocol. For blood samples, two tubes of blood (approximately 20 cc) will be drawn from the patient, utilizing a sterile technique. The tubes will be rocked so as to mix the blood with the additive (EDTA) in the tubes. ...

Germline Alterations of Tumor Susceptibility Genes in New York Cancer Patients

To establish significant correlations between genetic polymorphisms and cancer, a largescale, systematic comparison of genetic alterations utilizing a case-control methodology is proposed. To date, such studies have been limited due to the large number of samples necessary for obtaining statistical significance, and the lack of rapid and accurate methods to ...

MRI in Predicting Response in Patients Receiving Combination Chemotherapy and Bevacizumab For Advanced or Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To determine the alteration of tumor blood flow using dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) in patients with advanced or metastatic colorectal cancer after 2 courses of combination chemotherapy comprising oxaliplatin, fluorouracil, and leucovorin (FOLFOX) and bevacizumab at 5 mg/kg vs 10 mg/kg or FOLFOX alone. Secondary ...

Treatment Outcomes of Hepatic Metastasis After FOLFOX-4 Therapy

In 2000, de Gramont et al. and Giacchetti et al. reported that combination chemotherapy including modulated infusional 5-Fu plus irinotecan and oxaliplatin could achieve a response rate of approximately 50% and a median survival of in excess of 20 months. These encouraging results implied that chemotherapy is likely to play ...

Phase

Personalized Screening Plans to Increase Colorectal Cancer Screening in Healthy Participants

OBJECTIVES: - To compare the impact of tailored intervention vs standard intervention vs usual care on patient utilization of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. - To compare the impact of these interventions on CRC screening preference. - To compare the impact of these interventions on patient perceptions about CRC screening. OUTLINE: ...

General Surgical Outcomes Quality Improvement Database (UH-SOCRATES)

Since the Institute of Medicine report, titled "To Err is Human", there has been an increasing trend to evaluate outcomes in healthcare. While optimal outcomes in delivery of healthcare are something that hospitals and their medical, nursing and administrative staff have always tried to achieve, this has often been attempted ...

Phase N/A

Biological Factors in Predicting Response to Treatment in Patients With Esophageal Cancer or Rectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Analyze various biological factors that can be used as markers to predict response to treatment and correlate with the signaling pathway of EGFR. Secondary - Establish a tissue bank to store information about the response to treatment and survival. OUTLINE: Patients undergo endoscopy, 11 biopsies of tumor ...
