RESULTS

Found (40) clinical trials

Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the United States today. The majority of cancer deaths can be attributed to the metastatic spread of solid tumors to distant organs. Medical progress in the last century has aided in the earlier identification of cancers limited to the primary organ and ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation for NCI Surgery Branch Clinical Studies

Background: Potential research candidates undergo thorough screening including laboratory tests, scans, x-rays and review of pathology slides to determine initial eligibility for Surgery Branch research protocols. Objectives: To permit evaluation of patients referred to the NCI Surgery Branch in order to identify individuals who will be suitable candidates for Surgery ...

Phase N/A

Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery for Colorectal Cancer

Intervention will be done by conventional laparoscopy and transanal endoscopy (TEO or Gelpoint platform), patients are divided into two arms to compare different natural orifice techniques in resection of colorectal cancer.

Phase N/A

Accuracy of Detection Using ENdocuff Optimisation of Mucosal Abnormalities

Bowel cancer is common in the United Kingdom, with around 1 in 16 men and 1 in 20 women developing it at some point in their lives. Most bowel cancers happen when a type of polyp (a growth in the bowel) called an adenoma becomes cancerous. Doctors use a camera ...

Phase N/A

Application of MR-PET in Colorectal Cancer

This research expect that the image techniques and experience in this cancer group may be valuable and helpful for others. With advantage of MR-PET in better soft tissue delineation/functional information and less radiation dose than PET-CT, the ultimate goal in both research and clinical application is to establish new diagnostic ...

Phase N/A

Prognostic Value of Circulating Tumoral Free DNA Versus Circulating Tumoral Cells in Patients With Colorectal Cancer Stage II-III

After curative surgical resection, detection of metastatic lymph node remains the main prognostic validated criteria on which is based the decision of adjuvant therapy. To date, none of the molecular alterations, identified as potentially predictive factor, are used in routine for therapeutic decision. The circulating markers, either in the form ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers and Radiation Side Effects in Patients Undergoing Radiation Therapy for Gastrointestinal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine if tumor-specific DNA mutations and aberrant DNA methylation can be detected in the serum, urine, or stool at the time of diagnosis in patients undergoing radiotherapy for gastrointestinal malignancies. - Determine if changes in mutational status at follow up are associated with disease persistence, recurrence, or ...

Phase N/A

Implementation of a New Strategy to Identify HNPCC Patients

The Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre developed a new method to identify patients with HNPCC. This method appeared cost-effective and feasible. Using this new method 70% of the HNPCC patients will be identified as compared to less than 30% when the current method is used. However, this new method does ...

Phase N/A

Screening for CRC Using a Mixed Strategy of Sigmoidoscopy and Colonoscopy in Average-Risk Population According to Age

Because the prevalence of proximal colon cancer and APN was higher in older patients15, a greater proportion of advanced colonic neoplasia or cancer would be missed if colonoscopy was not performed for older patients. So if we develop a mixed strategy to offer sigmoidoscopy for younger patients and reserve colonoscopy ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Metabolic Activity of Liver Metastases by FDG-PET Scanning

The goal of this study is to evaluate the activity of liver metastases before and after resection of the primary tumor. Non-invasive assessment of tumor metabolism is possible in vivo by means of positron emission tomography (PET)-scanning. Therefore, FDG-PET scan offers a suitable approach to determine the influence of removal ...
