Bevacizumab and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Evaluate the objective response (complete and partial) rate in patients with metastatic colorectal adenocarcinoma treated with bevacizumab and modified FOLFIRI 3 chemotherapy. Secondary - Determine progression-free and overall survival. - Determine the tolerance to this regimen. - Evaluate the resectability rate. - Evaluate biological markers predictive of ...

Phase

Follow-Up Study of Patients Who Have Undergone Surgery for Stage I Stage II or Stage III Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To assess the effect of augmenting symptomatic follow-up in primary care with two intensive methods of follow-up (monitoring tumor marker in primary care and intensive imaging in hospital) on survival of patients with stage I, II, or III colorectal cancer who have undergone curative resection. Secondary - ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase

Study Using Fluorine-18-Labeled Fluoro-Misonidazole Positron Emission Tomography to Detect Hypoxia in Locally Advanced (T3-T4 and./or N1)Primary Rectal Cancer Patients

Hypoxia is a characteristic feature of malignant solid tumors associated with poor prognosis and resistance to chemotherapy and radiation. It has also been shown (6) that the presence of hypoxia may reduce long-term survival post surgery. Hypoxia renders tumor cells up to three times more resistant to ionizing radiation than ...

Phase

Feasibility Study of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Modified FOLFOX6 for Resectable Liver Metastases of Colorectal Cancers

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of liver resection for metastatic, resectable lesions from colorectal cancers after systemic chemotherapy.

Phase

MRI in Predicting Response in Patients Receiving Combination Chemotherapy and Bevacizumab For Advanced or Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To determine the alteration of tumor blood flow using dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) in patients with advanced or metastatic colorectal cancer after 2 courses of combination chemotherapy comprising oxaliplatin, fluorouracil, and leucovorin (FOLFOX) and bevacizumab at 5 mg/kg vs 10 mg/kg or FOLFOX alone. Secondary ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase

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

General Surgical Outcomes Quality Improvement Database (UH-SOCRATES)

Since the Institute of Medicine report, titled "To Err is Human", there has been an increasing trend to evaluate outcomes in healthcare. While optimal outcomes in delivery of healthcare are something that hospitals and their medical, nursing and administrative staff have always tried to achieve, this has often been attempted ...

Phase N/A

Biological Factors in Predicting Response to Treatment in Patients With Esophageal Cancer or Rectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Analyze various biological factors that can be used as markers to predict response to treatment and correlate with the signaling pathway of EGFR. Secondary - Establish a tissue bank to store information about the response to treatment and survival. OUTLINE: Patients undergo endoscopy, 11 biopsies of tumor ...
