Metformin and Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Stage III-IV Ovarian Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine if the addition of metformin to standard adjuvant or neoadjuvant chemotherapy plus extended metformin (metformin hydrochloride) beyond standard chemotherapy increases progression free survival when compared to 6 cycles of standard chemotherapy alone in non-diabetic subjects with stage III (with any gross residual disease) or stage ...

FLOTOR Pilot Study

The thoracic duct is the largest vessel of the lymphatic system in the body. It transports chyle (a liquid containing both lymph and emulsified fats) from most of the body, including the gastrointestinal tract, into the left internal jugular vein. It is largely located in the thorax and is at ...

Minirigid Versus Conventional Rigid Thoracoscopy in Undiagnosed Pleural Effusions

A significant proportion of patients with pleural effusions remain undiagnosed after performance of diagnostic procedures including cytological and microbiologic analysis of the pleural fluid and closed pleural biopsies. In this study, the investigators plan to compare the yield and safety of mini-thoracoscopy and conventional rigid thoracoscopy with the larger diameter ...

Fibrinolysis Compared to Thoracoscopy for Pleural Infection

Background: Pleural infection (empyema or complex parapneumonic effusion (CPPE)) represents one of the most common clinical diagnoses encountered in clinical practice in the United States (US) It is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality despite advances in medical diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Objective: Compare two standard of care treatments: TPA/DNase ...

International Registry of Patients Treated With Pressurized IntraPeritoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC)

All data entered into the registry documenting the patient cohort characteristics (disease, demography, therapy) are analyzed using descriptive statistics. Survival data are analyzed with Kaplan-Meier statistics. Multivariate Cox Proportional Hazard Models are used to identify potential prognostic and predictive factors. In particular, a risk- adjusted comparison of the outcome criteria ...

Sensitivity of PDL-1-analysis From Pleural Effusion in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

This is a prospective diagnostic pilot study to create hypotheses regarding immunocytochemistry (ICC) PD-L1 analysis of pleural effusions in NSCLC patients as compared to the reference standard of PD-L1 immunohistochemistry (IHC). This comparison will be done to assess sensitivity and specificity of PD-L1 detection by ICC in pleural effusions.

EDIT Management Feasibility Trial

Malignant Pleural Effusion (MPE) is a collection of fluid inside the chest caused by cancer. It is a common medical problem and often causes severe breathlessness. Patients with this condition generally have a very poor survival and so it is extremely important that they are given effective treatment as soon ...

Ketotifen as a Treatment for Vascular Leakage During Dengue Fever

Approximately 230 million individuals are infected each year by dengue virus (DENV) a Flavivirus spread by mosquito vectors that causes substantial worldwide morbidity and mortality. Infection by DENV results in dengue fever (DF), which is usually a self-limiting illness. However, many individuals can experience much more severe forms of disease, ...

Respiratory Endoscopy: Diagnostic Yield Technical Factors and Complications

Background: Respiratory endoscopy comprises flexible bronchoscopy and medical thoracoscopy. The diagnostic yield, technical factors and complications for all patient sub-populations is still not clearly defined. This may result in inappropriate or even dangerous application of such procedures. The aim of the study is to collect data on these aspects of ...

Effectiveness of Doxycycline for Treating Pleural Effusions Related to Cancer in an Outpatient Population

Malignant pleural effusions (MPE) occur in 25 - 50% of malignancies, represent advanced disease and carry with it significant morbidity. It is estimated that 75% of malignant effusions are symptomatic at the time of presentation, with dyspnea being the most common complaint. Cough, weight loss and chest pain may also ...
