Lanreotide in the Treatment of Small Bowel Motility Disorders

The investigators hypothesize that in patients with small bowel motility disorders, Lanreotide helps in alleviating the symptoms. Lanreotide is an FDA approved medication for management of acromegaly and neuroendocrine tumors, but has never been used for treating small bowel motility disorders. However, Octreotide which is similar to Lanreotide but is ...

Phase

Teen and Young Adult Connections for Support From Multidisciplinary Professionals & Peers

This research study will test the effect of in-home/mobile HPN support delivered to teen and young adult home parenteral nutrition (HPN) patients and family members over handheld personal computers. Effects on health status, QoL, and fatigue will be assessed over time between groups of study subjects from the ages of ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Trial of Electroacupuncture Stimulation on Prevention and Treatment of Oxaliplatin Neurotoxicity

The clinical trail of electroacupuncture combined with oxaliplatin regimen on gastrointestinal carcinoma.This trail is randomized controled.Patients are diagnosed gastrointestinal cancer based on pathology or cell biology.They are randomized into 2 groups:both groups receive Oxaliplatin regimen.The treatment group receives electroacupuncture in addition to the chemotherapy.The control group only receive the same ...

Phase N/A

Endoscopic Resection Multicenter Registry

Endoscopic resection can be an appropriate approach in early neoplasms, challenging adenomas or sub-epithelial lesions. Endoscopic resection can be considered as a less invasive approach than surgery. Moreover, endoscopic resection can be available to patients who are ineligible for surgery or who have refused more aggressive surgical intervention. The study ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Neo-adjuvant Peptide Receptor Mediated Radiotherapy With 177Lutetium in Front of Curative Intended Liver Transplantation in Patients With Hepatic Metastasis of Neuroendocrine Tumors (NEO-LEBE)

Matching patient will be treated neo-adjuvant at the hospital with 177 Lutetium peptide receptor radiotherapy in two following courses. After this treatment it will follow the liver transplantation within 9 month as postmortal or living donor liver transplantation. Under certain conditions concerning the evaluation examinations patients can be included in ...

Phase N/A

High Energy High Protein Peptide Feed Study

Malnutrition or "undernutrition" in adults (18 years of age) is the deficiency of nutrients (energy, protein and micronutrients) which causes adverse effects on bodily composition, clinical and functional outcomes. Malnutrition can occur as a result of a number of factors including inadequate calorie intake, impaired nutrient absorption (malabsorption/maldigestion) or increased ...

Phase N/A

Combination of Radiation Therapy and Peptide Specific CTL Therapy in Treating Patients With Esophageal Cancer

Immunotherapy is now considered to be one of promising approaches for treating cancer. Radiation therapy has been to be a cornerstone treatment for unresectable advanced esophageal cancer. Radiation-induced mutation genes were identified as new sources of tumor associated antigens using exon sequencing and peptide microarray technologies. Epitope peptides for these ...

Phase

Study of the Risk Factors and Outcomes After Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Antithrombotic therapies are effective for prevention of cardiovascular (CV) events but cause bleeding. Emerging evidence indicates that extra-cranial bleeding is just as important as myocardial infarction as a marker of risk for subsequent non-fatal and fatal CV events, but this issue has not been prospectively studied. If the association between ...
