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

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

Comparison of Laparoscopic Colectomy Versus Open Colectomy for Colorectal Cancer: A Prospective Randomized Trial

The appropriateness of laparoscopic surgery for the resection of colorectal cancer has been the focus of controversy. The pros insist that besides the smaller wound size, laparoscopic colectomy should induce lesser perioperative stress, which was evidenced by the less pain, quicker flatus passage, early feeding, and more rapid to resume ...

Phase

Association of Colorectal Cancer With Nutrition Diet Obesity Diabetes Mellitus and Genetic Alterations in Taiwan

This is a two-year hospital-based case control study. In the fist year, we will set up solid database of our laboratory regarding the molecular genetics of colorectal cancer. We will explore the genetic (including APC, k-ras, p53, MSI, etc.) and environmental (including family history, life style, diet, nutritional status, DM, ...

Phase

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

Comparison of Fecal Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) Test With Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) for Detecting Colorectal Cancer and Adenoma

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second common cause of death in the Western world, and is very increasing in Japan. Fecal occult blood test (FOBT) is used routinely for CRC screening, which has been shown to reduce the incidence, morbidity, and mortality of CRC. However, there is a need to ...

Phase N/A

Molecular Genetic and Pathological Studies of Anal Tumors

To determine the status of previously identified anal cancer molecular markers and any correlations with outcome as well as to discover new molecular biomarkers through correlating molecular data with clinical outcome. Study of tissue samples and cells from biopsies of your lesion and blood sample. We hope to learn the ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers in Patients With Rectal Cancer Undergoing Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Observe whether NF-kappa B is activated in response to treatment with external beam radiotherapy. - Correlate NF-kappa B pathway activation (presumed to be anti-apoptotic in nature) with therapeutic outcomes (as measured by rate of pathologic complete response or downstaging by endoscopic ultrasound [EUS]). Secondary - Study downstream ...

Phase N/A

Studying Tissue Samples From Patients With Stage II Colon Cancer Treated on Clinical Trial CLB-9581

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the impact of loss of p21 and mutations in p53 on the relationship between higher intake of a Western dietary pattern (manifested by higher red meat and total fat intake and lower n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, fruit and vegetable intake) and colon cancer recurrence/mortality. (B1) ...

Phase N/A

Gastrointestinal Biomarkers in Tissue and Biological Fluid Samples From Patients and Healthy Participants Undergoing Colonoscopy Endoscopy or Surgery

OBJECTIVES: - Identify new potential biomarkers of increased gastrointestinal cancer risk using tissue and biofluid samples from patients and healthy volunteers undergoing colonoscopy, endoscopy, or surgery. - Develop new screening strategies based on substances found in tissue and biofluid samples. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients and healthy volunteers ...
