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

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

Feasibility Study of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Modified FOLFOX6 for Resectable Liver Metastases of Colorectal Cancers

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of liver resection for metastatic, resectable lesions from colorectal cancers after systemic chemotherapy.

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 ...

18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) Positron Emission Tomography in Oncology

1.0 Background & Introduction In general, diagnostic imaging can address two issues: structure and function. One can either view structures in the body and image anatomy using structural imaging modalities such as plain film radiography (X-ray), Computerized Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), or one can view chemical processes ...

Influence of Neoadjuvant Therapy on the Resectability of Hepatic Metastases From Colorectal Cancers

More and more colorectal surgeons believe that surgical resections of hepatic metastases from colorectal cancer is the only chance for cure of patients. The five-year survival for patients with hepatic metastasis from colorectal cancer after surgical resection is approximately 30 %. However, most hepatic metastases from colorectal cancer were inoperable. ...

Phase

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Gemcitabine Capecitabine and Oxaliplatin as Second-Line Therapy in Treating Patients With Advanced Colorectal Cancer Previously Treated With Irinotecan

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Define the dose-limiting toxicity and maximum tolerated dose of gemcitabine hydrochloride when administered with capecitabine and oxaliplatin as second-line therapy in patients with advanced colorectal cancer previously treated with irinotecan hydrochloride. (Phase I) - Determine the recommended phase II dose of gemcitabine hydrochloride in these patients. (Phase ...

Comparison of Fecal Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) Test With Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) for Detecting Colorectal Cancer and Adenoma

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second common cause of death in the Western world, and is very increasing in Japan. Fecal occult blood test (FOBT) is used routinely for CRC screening, which has been shown to reduce the incidence, morbidity, and mortality of CRC. However, there is a need to ...
