RESULTS

Found (29) clinical trials

Wound infections can occur in about 12-25% of patients undergoing colorectal surgery despite routine efforts to prevent them. This study is being done to assess the safety and ability of an experimental drug called E-101 Solution (study drug), in addition to routine efforts, to prevent incisional wound infection for 30 ...

Irinotecan With or Without Panitumumab or Cyclosporine in Treating Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Colorectal Cancer That Did Not Respond to Fluorouracil

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare the efficacy and toxicity of single-agent irinotecan hydrochloride (Ir) vs Ir with cyclosporine (IrC) in patients with fluorouracil-resistant advanced colorectal cancer. - Compare the efficacy of single-agent Ir vs Ir with panitumumab (IrP) in these patients. Secondary - Correlate the toxicity of Ir and/or IrC with ...

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Cetuximab Before and After Surgery in Treating Patients With Resectable Liver Metastases Caused By Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare progression-free survival of patients with resectable colorectal liver metastases treated with neoadjuvant and adjuvant combination chemotherapy with vs without cetuximab. Secondary - Compare the overall survival of patients treated with these regimens. - Compare the quality of life of patients treated with these regimens. - Compare ...

Uracil and Tegafur/Leucovorin (UFT/LV) Versus UFT/LV+ Polysaccharide-K (PSK) for Stage IIIa/IIIb Colorectal Cancer

To conduct a randomized controlled trial comparing chemotherapy using UFT/LV and immunochemotherapy using UFT/LV combined with PSK in patients with histological stage IIIa and IIIb colorectal cancer (adenocarcinoma) who have undergone curative surgery without residual cancer (R0) using 3-year disease-free survival rate as primary endpoint, and also to analyze the ...

Aspirin for Dukes C and High Risk Dukes B Colorectal Cancers

Aspirin in patients with dukes C or high risk dukes B colorectal cancer can improve survival in this patient population over placebo control. Eligible patients will be randomized to treatment arms, using the following stratification factors: - Study Centre - Tumour Type - Type of adjuvant chemotherapy received(exposed/not exposed to ...

Treatment Outcomes of Hepatic Metastasis After FOLFOX-4 Therapy

In 2000, de Gramont et al. and Giacchetti et al. reported that combination chemotherapy including modulated infusional 5-Fu plus irinotecan and oxaliplatin could achieve a response rate of approximately 50% and a median survival of in excess of 20 months. These encouraging results implied that chemotherapy is likely to play ...

Personalized Screening Plans to Increase Colorectal Cancer Screening in Healthy Participants

OBJECTIVES: - To compare the impact of tailored intervention vs standard intervention vs usual care on patient utilization of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. - To compare the impact of these interventions on CRC screening preference. - To compare the impact of these interventions on patient perceptions about CRC screening. OUTLINE: ...

Phase 3 Study of Surgery Combined With Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy(XELOX) in Colorectal Cancer With Resectable Liver Metastasis

Liver metastasis is the most important prognostic factor of colorectal cancer. Reasonable multidisciplinary therapy might improve the prognosis of patients with liver metastasis. Surgery has been the first choice under such situation. Recently, neoadjuvant chemotherapy has also shown its value in unresectable liver metastasis, for it can increase the chance ...

Phase

Trial of Preoperative Hepatic and Regional Arterial Chemotherapy (PHRAC) to Prevent Postoperative Liver Metastasis of Colorectal Cancer

We administered FUDR, MMC and Oxaliplatin as preoperative hepatic and regional arterial chemotherapy (PHRAC) to patients with Stage II or Stage III colorectal cancer without apparent liver metastasis based on a thorough preoperative evaluation. The study endpoints were disease-free survival, overall survival, and liver metastasis-free survival as evaluated by intent-to-treat ...

Phase

Combination Chemotherapy After Surgery in Treating Patients With High-Risk Stage II or Stage III Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - To assess the efficacy and compare the associated toxicity of adjuvant chemotherapy lasting 12 weeks vs 24 weeks in patients with fully resected high-risk stage II or III colorectal cancer. - To conduct an economic analysis of the cost effectiveness of these regimens. - To compare the randomization ...
