Metformin and Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Stage III-IV Ovarian Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine if the addition of metformin to standard adjuvant or neoadjuvant chemotherapy plus extended metformin (metformin hydrochloride) beyond standard chemotherapy increases progression free survival when compared to 6 cycles of standard chemotherapy alone in non-diabetic subjects with stage III (with any gross residual disease) or stage ...


A Study of Intraperitoneal Paclitaxel in Combination With SOX Compared With SOX Alone in Gastric Cancer With Malignant Ascites

This study is designed to compare the efficacy of intraperitoneal paclitaxel in combination with SOX, with SOX alone in the first-line treatment of gastric cancer with malignant ascites


Gastrointestinal Microbiome Study of Appendiceal Cancer

Analysis of the human microbiome is an attempt to define how changes in the human microbiome are associated with health or disease. Eligible participants scheduled to undergo cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC) for appendiceal cancer will provide fecal samples pre- and post-operatively. Investigators will analyze potential changes in ...

Phase N/A

Antibiotic Treatment and Long-term Outcomes of Patients With Pseudomyxoma Peritonei of Appendiceal Origin

Single center, open label, historical controlled, phase II study that proposes two courses of standard H. Pylori eradication antibiotic therapy can suppress carcinogenesis and improve the long-term outcomes of patients with PMP. The first course of antibiotics (PrevPac) will be administered before cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC and the second course ...


International Registry of Patients Treated With Pressurized IntraPeritoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC)

All data entered into the registry documenting the patient cohort characteristics (disease, demography, therapy) are analyzed using descriptive statistics. Survival data are analyzed with Kaplan-Meier statistics. Multivariate Cox Proportional Hazard Models are used to identify potential prognostic and predictive factors. In particular, a risk- adjusted comparison of the outcome criteria ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Efficacy of Diuretics for Symptomatic Malignant Ascites Episodes in Advanced Stage of Cancer (DIASC)

Patients eligible for the trial and having signed their consent to participate will be randomized to arm A or B. Treatment order is randomly attributed to patients at the 1st paracentesis, after the reception of the laboratory results necessary to evaluate SAAG value. Randomization is stratified 1:1 according to SAAG ...


Peritoneal Surface Malignancies - Characterization Models and Treatment Strategies

The handling of patients with PSM involves multimodal and multidisciplinary treatment strategies such as CRS, the removal of all macroscopically detectable tumor, and HIPEC, instillation of heated chemotherapy in the abdominal cavity to remove residual cancer disease. The treatment is challenging and complex and associated with significant morbidity. Only patients ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Study of Autologous Erythrocytes Derived MPs Packaging MTX Peritoneal Perfusion to Treat Malignant Ascites

As a drug carrier, erythrocytes have their own advantages, such as high biocompatibility, high immune compatibility, simple structure and easy access. In this study, microparticles released from erythrocytes are used as the carrier of chemotherapy drugs and effectively kill tumor cells in malignant ascites. These microparticles can easily reach the ...


Symptomatic Ascites Drainage With a Patient-controlled Vascular Catheter.

Patients with symptomatic, refractory malignant ascites (MA) will be eligible for the study. In case a cancer treatment is not effective against ascites, or no target, systemic treatment is possible patients will be eligible for percutaneous placement of a vascular catheter into abdominal cavity followed be drainage performed in a ...

Phase N/A

The Study of Intraperitoneal Docetaxel Plus S-1 for Malignant Ascites

Peritoneal metastasis(PM) is common in advanced gastric cancer and associated with a poor prognosis. The median survival time is 3 to 4 months and even shorter in the patients with malignant ascites. Systemic chemotherapy is considered to be less effective against peritoneal metastasis (PM) due to the existence of the ...
