Modelling Internal Hepatic Movement With an External Abdominal Marker

The study will use a real time position management (RPM) system for respiratory gating. The RPM system senses the respiration motion of the patient by tracking a pair of reflective markers on a lightweight "marker block" constructed of a synthetic material. This block is placed on the patient's abdomen. During ...

Phase N/A

Natural Killer Cells and Bortezomib to Treat Cancer

Natural killer (NK) cells are innate immune lymphocytes that are identified by the expression of the CD56 surface antigen and the lack of CD3. Unlike antigen specific T cells, NK cells do not require the presence of a specific tumor antigen for the recognition and killing of cancer cells. Our ...


A Phase II Multicenter Randomized Placebo Controlled Double Blinded Clinical Study of KD018 as a Modulator of Irinotecan Chemotherapy in Patients With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

KD018 is an oral form of a spray dried aqueous extract composed of four main herbs, which have been used in the Orient for nearly 2000 years for a variety of GI symptoms including diarrhea and nausea/vomiting. Extensive pre-clinical research has been done with Chinese herbal medicine, and studies have ...


Application of CO2 Insufflations in Colonoscopy Randomized Trial

- Setting: Screening colonoscopy or secondary colonoscopy after positive FOBT performed in endoscopic unit of a single university hospital - Study design: Single blinded randomized trial - Randomization process: sealed envelope - Study subjects: Inclusion criteria: Subjects who receive Screening colonoscopy or secondary colonoscopy Exclusion criteria: subjects who have COPD ...

Phase N/A

Peri-Operative Management of Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery

Patients will be randomized into one of 3 groups - A, B or C. In order to remove the major confounding factor of hypovolaemia, all patients will have an oesophageal doppler inserted in order to achieve fluid optimisation. Each group will then either have an epidural, spinal or a PCA ...


Combination Chemotherapy After Surgery in Treating Patients With High-Risk Stage II or Stage III Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - To assess the efficacy and compare the associated toxicity of adjuvant chemotherapy lasting 12 weeks vs 24 weeks in patients with fully resected high-risk stage II or III colorectal cancer. - To conduct an economic analysis of the cost effectiveness of these regimens. - To compare the randomization ...


Study of Genes and the Environment in Patients With Colorectal Cancer in the East Anglia Region of the United Kingdom

OBJECTIVES: - To obtain epidemiological information and biological material on a population based series of colorectal cancer cases. - To define the proportion of colorectal cancer incidence attributable to mutations in known predisposing genes such as MLH1 and MSH2. - To establish whether mutations at other loci may predispose to ...

Phase N/A

Combination Chemotherapy and Cetuximab in Treating Patients Undergoing Surgery for Peritoneal Carcinomatosis From Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the efficacy of systemic chemotherapy and cetuximab, in terms of progression-free survival at 3 years, in patients with completely resected peritoneal carcinomatosis of colorectal origin. Secondary - Determine the therapeutic strategy among patients who are or are not fit to receive chemotherapy. - Determine progression-free survival ...


Capiri-sutent Phase-1 in Advanced Colo-rectal Cancer

The primary objective of this Phase 1 study is to identify the recommended dose of capiri and of sunitinib for combination therapy subsequent phase II trials.


A Multi-Center Randomised Controlled Study to Evaluate Laparoscopic Versus Open Surgery for Colorectal Cancer

Laparoscopic surgery has been widely accepted for its minimal invasion and safety. However, whether it has the same survival benefit as the traditional open surgery in Chinese population is still unknown. So we designed this study to evaluate the 3 year disease free survival rate in the laparoscopic group versus ...
