Clinical Trial of Tumor Cell-derived Microparticles Packaging Chemotherapeutic Drugs to Treat Malignant Pleural Effusion

Malignant pleural effusion(MPE) as a common complication of advanced lung cancer is lack of efficient treatments. The investigators have successfully produced tumor cell-derived microparticles packaging chemotherapy drugs and confirmed that this new integrative targeted biochemotherapy treatment could effectively restrain tumor growth at cellular and animal levels.This new method could control ...

Phase

Surgery for Mesothelioma After Radiation Therapy "SMART" for Resectable Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

The purpose of this study is to determine whether radiation therapy decreases tumor size and tumor spread. The investigators will consent subjects that have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and will undergo radiation therapy followed by surgical resection as their standard of care. The investigators will collect data from past and ...

Phase N/A

Staging Procedures to Diagnose Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of participants imaging versus staging procedures. The investigators will consent subjects that are scheduled to undergo staging procedures to diagnose malignant pleural mesothelioma (including pleuroscopy, bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound and laparoscopy) as part of their standard of care.

Phase N/A

Chemotherapy Followed by Surgery and Neoadjuvant Hemothoracic Intensity Modified Radiation Therapy (IMRT) for Patients With Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

The investigators will consent patients that have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and will undergo chemotherapy followed by surgery and then IMRT as their standard of care. The investigators will collect data from past and future medical records as well as data regarding their health status for their lifetime by reviewing ...

Phase N/A

Oral Bacterial Extract for the Prevention of Wheezing Lower Respiratory Tract Illness

This is a 36 month parallel arm, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial for the prevention of WLRI into the third to fifth year of life (30 to 54 mo inclusive) in young children (6-18 months old) at increased risk for asthma. The trial will be divided into 2 periods. During the initial ...

Phase

Intrapleural Cryotherapy for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

Patients that have been diagnosed, or are suspected of having malignant pleural mesothelioma, a cancer of the pleura, surgery may be considered as an attempt to treat the cancer. As part of the testing needed before surgery, a pleuroscopy or video camera examination of the pleura is necessary to establish ...

Phase N/A

Rapid Pleurodesis Through an Indwelling Pleural Catheter

Patients will be screened throughout the year as part of the clinical referral process to the Interventional Pulmonology service at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for the management of a malignant pleural effusion. Patients eligible for inclusion based on the clinical evaluation will be approached for enrollment. Written ...

Phase N/A

Swiss Paediatric Airway Cohort

Background Many studies have investigated the epidemiology of asthma in childhood, but most were based on data from the general population gathered either in cross-sectional or longitudinal surveys in schoolchildren. Objectives The Swiss Paediatric Airway Cohort (SPAC) was set up in 2017 as a large, longitudinal database that is representative ...

Phase N/A

Pediatric Arm of DZL All Age Asthma Cohort

About 25-30% of children have at least one episode of wheeze before their 3rd birthday, but considerable clinical heterogeneity exists. Many of these children become symptom-free between 3 and 8 years of age, but some go on to persistent asthma in later childhood and adulthood. Despite its high prevalence, still ...

Phase N/A

Minirigid Versus Conventional Rigid Thoracoscopy in Undiagnosed Pleural Effusions

A significant proportion of patients with pleural effusions remain undiagnosed after performance of diagnostic procedures including cytological and microbiologic analysis of the pleural fluid and closed pleural biopsies. In this study, the investigators plan to compare the yield and safety of mini-thoracoscopy and conventional rigid thoracoscopy with the larger diameter ...
