MEK162 in Combination With Capecitabine in Advanced Biliary Tract Cancer

Biliary tract cancer is one of rare cancers, which is relatively more frequent in east Asia. The frequency of KRAS mutation and/or BRAF mutation is reported at 40 to 60%. The prognosis is still very poor, with only limited treatment options. The most commonly used 1st-line chemotherapy is gemcitabine+cisplatin combination. ...


Varlitinib in Combination With Capecitabine for Advanced or Metastatic Biliary Tract Cancer

This protocol for Varlitinib is developed for the treatment of Biliary Tract Cancer. Varlitinib (also known as ASLAN001) is a small-molecule, adenosine triphosphate competitive inhibitor of the tyrosine kinases - epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER)2, and HER4. Varlitinib may be beneficial to subjects with ...


High Volume Washing of the Abdomen in Increasing Survival After Surgery in Patients With Pancreatic Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Overall survival (OS) (18 to 27 months after resection). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Disease free survival (DFS). II. Complication rate. III. Site of first-recurrence (by site, and distant vs. local). IV. Clearance of malignant cells pre vs. post-lavage. OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 3 arms. Arm ...

A Study for Efficacy of Side-by-side Compared to Stent-in-stent Technique in the Endoscopic Management of Malignant Hilar Biliary Obstruction

Malignant obstructive jaundice is a common complication of advanced stage cholangiocarcinoma, GB cancer, and pancreatic cancer. In biliary stricture by malignancy, biliary drainage with placement of self-expanding metal stent (SEMS) for palliation is the therapy of choice in these patients. On hilar biliary malignant obstruction, bilateral stent used to be ...

Summary Purpose and Objective: The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of rapid acquisition of point of care 3D ultrasound in obtaining abdominal and/or pelvic images. The study will use a newly developed acquisition method and post-processing technique to create three dimensional image models of the abdomen ...

Phase N/A

ABC-08: Phase Ib Trial of Acelarin in Combination With Cisplatin in Locally Advanced/ Metastatic Biliary Tract Cancers

Active chemotherapy drugs for the treatment of advanced biliary tract cancers (ABC) include gemcitabine, fluoropyrimidines and platinum agents. The United Kingdom (UK) National Cancer Research Network (NCRN) ABC-02 study established cisplatin and gemcitabine as the standard of care for the first-line treatment of patients with ABC and this regimen has ...

Patients will undergo basal blood sample exams regarding blood cell count, renal and liver function, tumor markers, inflammatory and metabolic state, along with a screening (and, if needed, a more in-depth laboratory analysis) for viral hepatitis infections. Information will be collected about radiological, clinical and pathological features of the neoplasm ...

Phase N/A

Beacon BNX Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)-Needle vs SharkCore Needle

Rationale A tissue core biopsy with preserved architecture is critical to diagnose and fully characterize certain neoplasms, such as lymphomas and GI stromal tumors (GIST). Moreover, tissue specimens for histologic examination also provides the opportunity to immunostain the tissue, further increasing differential diagnostic capabilities; reach a specific diagnosis for benign ...

Phase N/A

Pembrolizumab and GM-CSF in Biliary Cancer

This is an open label phase II trial to examine efficacy and safety of a novel combination of pembrolizumab plus induction GM-CSF in patients with advanced biliary cancers treated at UCSF. This phase II study will examine the efficacy and safety of the novel combination of pembrolizumab plus induction GM-CSF ...


The Role of ctDNA and PBMC in Treatment of Biliary Tract Cancer

Biliary cancer ranked fifth in all gastrointestinal malignant cancer. Epidemiological surveys showed a significant increasing trend in recent years. How can make an early diagnosis of bile duct cancer as well as prognostic evaluation and efficacy monitoring, has become the hotspot. "liquid biopsy", which is meant to detect cancers by ...
