Early Detection of Esophageal Cancer

Esophageal cancer is a common malignancy with a very poor prognosis. The principal reason for its poor prognosis is that most tumors are asymptomatic and go undetected until they have spread beyond the esophageal wall and are unresectable. Significant reduction in esophageal cancer mortality will require successful strategies to diagnose ...

Phase N/A

Bone Marrow-derived Cells' Contribution to Tumor Formation and Inflammation

Recent experimental studies showed that circulating bone marrow-derived stem cells contribute to the formation of cancers cells. However, it is not clear whether this is applicable to human beings or not. In addition, bone marrow-derived cells are considered to play a significant role in regeneration of inflamed epithelial cells of ...

Phase N/A

Development of Early Detection Signs for Gastrointestinal Cancer

The first goal of this proposal is to collect cells from the peripheral blood, tumor draining lymph nodes and tumor infiltrating lymphocytes in patients with early or late stage gastrointestinal cancers. These samples will be evaluated in a variety of immunological assays to better understand the immune response to these ...

Phase N/A

Procaspase Activating Compound-1 (PAC-1) in the Treatment of Advanced Malignancies - Component 1

This Phase I dose escalation study will evaluate Procaspase Activating Compound-1 (PAC-1), a small molecule that activates procaspase -3 to caspase-3, resulting in apoptosis of cancer cells, in patients with advanced malignancies. PAC-1 is taken orally on days 1-21 of a 28-day cycle. The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of PAC-1 ...

Phase

Copanlisib (BAY 80-6946) in Combination With Gemcitabine and Cisplatin in Advanced Cholangiocarcinoma

The purpose of this study is to see if an experimental drug, called copanlisib is effective and safe in treating adult participants with cholangiocarcinoma, when used in combination with gemcitabine and cisplatin.

Phase

Autologous Tumor Tissue Antigen-sensitized DC-CIK Cells Combined With Chemotherapy for Esophageal Cancer

60 patients of esophageal cancer with TNM stage of tumor stage II-III,who had received surgery and kept their tumor tissue, will be randomly divided into group A (receive cancer tissue antigen sensitized D-CIK immune cells in combination with chemotherapy treatment) or group B (just receive chemotherapy), and the randomize ratio ...

Phase

A Study of IMU-131 Plus Standard of Care Chemotherapy in Patients With HER2/Neu Overexpressing Advanced Cancer of the Stomach

IMU-131 is a single peptide structure composed of 3 individual B-cell epitope peptide sequences selected from HER2/neu structure. Polyclonal antibodies against IMU-131 peptides bind three separate regions of the HER2 receptor and also to the dimerization loop of the HER2 receptor, preventing dimerization, which in turn inhibits intracellular signaling. This ...

Phase

Activity of Regorafenib in Combination With Chemotherapy in Patients With Advanced Biliary Tract Cancer

Regorafenib (BAY 73-4506) was assessed in metastatic colorectal cancer in the phase III randomized CORRECT trial. 760 metastatic colorectal cancer patients were recruited after the failure of all standard therapies. Given the promising efficacy and favorable tolerability profile of mGEMOX and the potential benefits of targeting the VEGF and Ras/Raf ...

Phase

A Trial Assessing Several Schedules of Oral S-1 in Combination With a Fixed Dose of Oxaliplatin and Irinotecan

Given the therapeutic potential and reduced toxicity advantages of S-1 compared with other fluoropyrimidines, this trial assessing S-1 with Oxaliplatin plus Irinotecan is warranted for future investigations (Phase II-III). The primary objectives are to determine the Maximal Tolerated Dose (MTD), the Dose Limitant Toxicities (DLTs) and the safety profile of ...

Phase

Probiotic LGG for Prevention of Side Effects in Patients Undergoing Chemoradiation for Gastrointestinal Cancer

Phase 3 placebo-controlled trial to determine efficacy of the probiotic LGG for reducing acute treatment related GI toxicity in patients with GI malignancy with phase 1 safety lead-in.
