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 ...

Phase N/A

In Vitro Models of Liver and Pancreatic Cancer

The primary objective is to develop an in vitro model of cancer for laboratory study using liver, biliary and pancreatic cancer tissue. The secondary objective is to study the genetic and cellular biology of cancer of the liver, biliary tract and the pancreas. As well the investigators hope to compare ...

Phase N/A

RFA for Malignant Biliary Obstruction

Cholangiocarcinoma and pancreatic cancer are by far the two most common causes of malignant bile duct obstruction. Cholangiocarcinoma is an adenocarcinoma originating in the bile duct whereas pancreatic cancer is an adenocarcinoma derived from pancreatic ductal cells. The incidence rates of both diseases have been rising over the past decades. ...

Enteral Nutrition After Pancreaticoduodenectomy

Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is the treatment of choice for resectable periampullary cancer. PD is still associated with a relatively a high incidence of delayed gastric emptying. And, there are no acknowledged strategies to avoid DGE. Several feeding strategies have been investigated to cope with this problem. However, there is still no ...

CureOne Registry: Advanced Malignancy or Myelodysplasia Tested by Standard Sequencing and Treated by Physician Choice

Every malignancy or myelodysplasia is different on a molecular (genetic) level even in patients with the same diagnosis. These differences often give prognostic information, determine what types of treatments are available for a patient, as well as determine outcomes. In this registry, the method of identifying the genetic difference of ...

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

An Evaluation of the Utility of the ExSpiron Respiratory Variation Monitor During Upper GI Endoscopy

The purpose of this study is to assess the utility of the ExSpiron Respiratory Variation Monitor in patients undergoing an interventional procedure with anesthesia. The primary outcome measure will be the average minute ventilation of the patient during the procedure. This study will also examine the correlation between clinical interventions ...

Phase N/A

Duct-to-mucosa Versus Invagination for Pancreaticojejunostomy

The purpose of this study is to determine whether duct-to-mucosa is better than invagination in pancreaticojejunostomy after pancreaticoduodenectomy. This single-centre, open, randomized controlled trail is conducted following ISGPF criteria for pancreatic fistula (PF). The duration of the study is supposed to start from Jan 5th 2012 and last to Dec ...

Phase N/A

Interventional Endoscopy Database for Pancreatico-biliary Gastrointestinal and Esophageal Disorders

Our institution performs therapeutic ERCP (Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography ), Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) and Interventional Endoscopy in around 1000 patients a year. Procedures such as biliary and/or pancreatic sphincterotomy, stents placement (metallic or plastic) and removal for revision, cysts and pseudocysts drainage are conducted in patients suffering from pancreatico-biliary disorders, gastrointestinal ...

Phase N/A

Los Angeles Prospective GI Biliary and EUS Series

AIMS A) Characterize unusual disease and pathologic presentations which require endoscopic treatment in a large safety net hospital B) To study the impact of EUS and ERCP on the management of these patients. C) Analyze how EUS and ERCP results correlate with other radiographic methods including conventional ultrasound and computed ...
