A Study of Patients Receiving High-Dose Rate Brachytherapy

BACKGROUND: - High dose rate brachytherapy (HDR) is a challenging technique utilized in many malignancies in order to deliver a high dose of radiation therapy to a tumor in a conformal fashion with a rapid dose fall-off with the objective of sparing normal surrounding tissue - HDR therapy has been ...

ADH-1 Gemcitabine Hydrochloride and Cisplatin in Treating Patients With Metastatic Pancreatic or Biliary Tract Cancer That Cannot Be Removed By Surgery

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the toxicities and determine the recommended dose of ADH-1 given twice weekly for 3 weeks in combination with cisplatin and fixed-dose rate gemcitabine (gemcitabine hydrochloride) given on weeks 1 and 2 of the 3 week schedule for 3 cycles in patients with locally advanced or ...

Phase

Clinical Trial to Investigate the Efficacy of Treatment With Gemcitabine/Pazopanib in Patients With Biliary Tree Cancer

This is an open label, uncontrolled, multicenter, phase II study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Gemcitabine/Pazopanib combination as 1st line treatment in patients with unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic biliary tree adenocarcinoma. A total of 46 patients will be included in the study. The patients will receive open ...

A Phase I/II Study Safety and Efficacy Study of PCI of Gemcitabine and Chemotherapy in Patients With Cholangiocarcinomas

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is an uncommon adenocarcinoma arising from the neoplastic transformation of cholangiocytes, the epithelial cells lining the intra-hepatic and extra-hepatic bile ducts. CCA accounts for about 3% of all digestive tumours and 10-15% of the hepatobiliary tumours. It has an annual incidence of 1-2 cases per 100,000 in the ...

Activity of Regorafenib in Combination With Chemotherapy in Patients With Advanced Biliary Tract Cancer

Regorafenib (BAY 73-4506) was assessed in metastatic colorectal cancer in the phase III randomized CORRECT trial. 760 metastatic colorectal cancer patients were recruited after the failure of all standard therapies. Given the promising efficacy and favorable tolerability profile of mGEMOX and the potential benefits of targeting the VEGF and Ras/Raf ...

Phase

A Randomized Trial of Two Surgical Techniques for Pancreaticojejunostomy in Patients Undergoing Pancreaticoduodenectomy

Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is a commonly performed operative procedure which is used in selected patients with benign and malignant diseases of the pancreas and periampullary region. The procedure involves regional resection of the pancreatic head, neck, and uncinate process en-bloc with the duodenum, distal bile duct, and lymph nodes. The standard ...

Phase N/A

Biliary Tissue Sampling Using a Cytology Brush or the GIUM Catheter

Introduction Many patients with a suspected malignant biliary obstruction are considered unsuitable for surgery because of locally advanced or metastatic disease or poor clinical performance status. Management of these patients is facilitated by a tissue diagnosis at initial endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP). This may obviate further invasive tests, and the ...

Phase

Study of CX-4945 in Combination With Gemcitabine and Cisplatin for Frontline Treatment of Cholangiocarcinoma

Protein kinase CK2 is a constitutively active serine/threonine kinase with a long history as a pro-survival, anti-apoptotic kinase. Given the wide spread overexpression of CK2 in multiple cancers and its role in multiple non-oncogenic processes required to sustain the cancer phenotype, a selective inhibitor of CK2 is an attractive targeted ...

Adjuvant Chemotherapy With Gemcitabine and Cisplatin Compared to Standard of Care After Curative Intent Resection of Biliary Tract Cancer

The ACTICCA-1 investigator initiated trial is funded by the Deutsche Krebshilfe (grant number 70110215, 70112047) and supported by medac. With respect to data obtained in the ABC-02 trial, the combination of cisplatin and gemcitabine for 24 weeks as investigational treatment was selected. Based on adjuvant trials in pancreatic cancer (e.g. ...
