Establishing Effective Screening Methods for Diagnosing Hereditary Nonpolypoisis Colorectal Cancer

Patients with newly diagnoised colorectal cancer will be eligible. They will undergo detailed history taking including family history, and molecular stuidies including microsatellite instability test and immunohistochemistry for DNA mismatch repair protein with pre-selection. Any abnormal finding in molecular stuides will be offered genetic testing (after testing methylation status for ...

Phase N/A

Impact of a Mailed Educational Reminder on Fecal Occult Blood Testing (FOBT): A Randomized Controlled Trial

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer in men and women in the United States with an estimated 147,000 new cases and more than 56,000 deaths each year. Early detection of colon cancer and removal of precancerous adenomatous polyps have been shown to reduce its morbidity, mortality and ...

Phase N/A

Anterior Perineal Plane for Ultra Low Anterior Resection of the Rectum

This study is recruiting patients with distal third rectal pathology, for whom a conventional sphincter saving procedure is contraindicated, or likely to be technically impossible. Recruited patients will initially undergo trial dissection by conventional sphincter preserving surgical techniques, which if successful will result in patients entering study arm 1. However, ...

Phase N/A

Radiation Therapy Chemotherapy and Cetuximab Followed by Surgery Chemotherapy and Cetuximab in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Rectal Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the complete remission rate at 6 months after neoadjuvant radiotherapy, capecitabine, and oxaliplatin (XELOX), and cetuximab followed by surgery, adjuvant FOLFOX 4, and cetuximab in patients with synchronous locally advanced or metastatic cancer of the rectum with resectable metastases (T3-4 Nx or T2 N+ M1). Secondary ...

Phase

Bevacizumab and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Evaluate the objective response (complete and partial) rate in patients with metastatic colorectal adenocarcinoma treated with bevacizumab and modified FOLFIRI 3 chemotherapy. Secondary - Determine progression-free and overall survival. - Determine the tolerance to this regimen. - Evaluate the resectability rate. - Evaluate biological markers predictive of ...

Phase

Follow-Up Study of Patients Who Have Undergone Surgery for Stage I Stage II or Stage III Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To assess the effect of augmenting symptomatic follow-up in primary care with two intensive methods of follow-up (monitoring tumor marker in primary care and intensive imaging in hospital) on survival of patients with stage I, II, or III colorectal cancer who have undergone curative resection. Secondary - ...

Phase N/A

Aspirin for Dukes C and High Risk Dukes B Colorectal Cancers

Aspirin in patients with dukes C or high risk dukes B colorectal cancer can improve survival in this patient population over placebo control. Eligible patients will be randomized to treatment arms, using the following stratification factors: - Study Centre - Tumour Type - Type of adjuvant chemotherapy received(exposed/not exposed to ...

Phase

Study Using Fluorine-18-Labeled Fluoro-Misonidazole Positron Emission Tomography to Detect Hypoxia in Locally Advanced (T3-T4 and./or N1)Primary Rectal Cancer Patients

Hypoxia is a characteristic feature of malignant solid tumors associated with poor prognosis and resistance to chemotherapy and radiation. It has also been shown (6) that the presence of hypoxia may reduce long-term survival post surgery. Hypoxia renders tumor cells up to three times more resistant to ionizing radiation than ...

Phase

Veliparib and Irinotecan Hydrochloride in Treating Patients With Cancer That Is Metastatic or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the optimal biologic dose (OBD) for poly (adenosine diphosphate [ADP]-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibition using irinotecan (irinotecan hydrochloride) (once weekly intravenously in 2 of 3 weeks), in combination with ABT-888 (veliparib) (twice daily orally for 2 of 3 weeks). (ORIGINAL DOSE ESCALATION PORTION) II. To determine ...

Phase

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. ...
