Fine Needle Biopsy of Solid Pancreatic Mass Lesions

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is currently the standard method for sampling solid pancreatic masses, with reported sensitivity for malignant cytology of 85-95%, specificity of 95-98% and diagnostic accuracy of 78-95%. Diagnostic failure of EUS-FNA can be due to inadequate targeting, inexperience of the endoscopist/pathologist, or necrotic or fibrotic …

Biological Effect of Warfarin on Pancreatic Cancer

There is emerging evidence from pre-clinical models that Axl activation is critical for the tumorigenesis and metastasis of pancreatic cancer. Warfarin is a readily available drug in the clinical setting and could be easily, safely, and quickly used in patients in combination with known cytotoxic chemotherapies to improve overall survival. …

Nutrition Support to Improve Outcomes in Patients With Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer

A total of 60 subjects will be recruited from The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Hirshberg Pancreatic Cancer Center, print and/or radio advertisements, UCLA campus wide e-mail, and flyers posted on campus and in the community. Participants will be pre-screened over the telephone to determine eligibility. Eligible subjects will …

Monitoring of patIents With Microdialysis Following Pancreaticoduodenectomy

Anastomotic leakage after pancreaticoduodenectomy is a feared complication with substantial mortality and morbidity. Treatment of a postoperative pancreatic fistula can be difficult and management may range from a simple observation with or without percutaneous drainage, to the urgent need for reoperation and management of abdominal sepsis with organ failure and …

Development of a Cinical and Biological Database in Ovarian Fallopian Tube and Peritoneal Cancers

A Clinical and Biological Database is a collection of reliable, prospective and representative datas. This collection, provided to the scientific community, will help to develope research programs such as : Cinicals and biological predictive factors of treatments response Identification of biological tumoral markers associate with survival Identification of prognosic factors …

A Clinicobiological Database in Metastatic Digestive Cancers

Digestive cancers account for 30% of all cancers. The most common of these colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cause of cancer in the world. In the metastatic phase, patients with digestive cancers generally benefit from medical treatment based on cytotoxic chemotherapy, which can be combined with targeted …

Phase N/A

Low-dose Y90 Treatment Planning for HCC

Hepatocellular carcinoma is a second deadliest cancer in the world with less than 20% of patients eligible for curative surgery at the time of diagnosis. Yttrium-90 (Y90) radioembolization is palliative treatment with promising result. However, one of the most important factors in the success of Y90 treatment is to ensure …

Phase N/A

Pulse-low-dose Rate (PLDR) Radiation in Pancreatic Cancer

Radiation, combined with radiosensitizing chemotherapies, is often used preoperatively for borderline resectable cases with the intent of facilitating a curative surgical intervention. This includes providing margin adjacent to un-resectable vessels and sterilizing regional lymph nodes. Unfortunately, due to the radiosensitivity of adjacent small bowel and stomach, the total dose of …

Phase N/A

RCT of Mobile Apps & FitBit v. Usual Care

Patients will be randomized to 1) standard of care or 2) to use our mobile app with standard care. The mobile app will collect information on patients' daily physical activity patterns and health status data for clinicians using smartphone mobile technology applications. The investigators believe that by tracking information on …

Phase N/A

A Pilot Study of Perioperative Nivolumab and Paricalcitol to Target the Micoenvironment in Resectable Pancreatic Cancer

The main purpose of this study is to look at the potential effects of paricalcitol (a drug similar to vitamin D) and nivolumab on pancreatic tumors in patients who are treated with gemcitabine and abraxane. The study will also look at the safety of including paricalcitol and nivolumab as part …
