Ifosfamide and Doxorubicin Radiation Therapy and/or Surgery in Treating Young Patients With Localized Soft Tissue Sarcoma

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine survival rates (event-free survival and overall survival [OS]) and the pattern of treatment failure in patients with synovial sarcoma or adult-type soft tissue sarcoma treated with ifosfamide and doxorubicin hydrochloride, radiotherapy, and/or surgery. - Determine the role of ifosfamide and doxorubicin hydrochloride in improving the response ...


Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Young Patients With Nonmetastatic Rhabdomyosarcoma

OBJECTIVES: - Improve the outcome in pediatric patients with low-risk rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) treated with vincristine and dactinomycin alone. - Evaluate whether the outcome for older patients with standard-risk RMS with favorable features may be improved/maintained by administering a treatment with limited intensity. - Evaluate whether chemotherapy intensity for patients with ...


Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Cetuximab Before and After Surgery in Treating Patients With Resectable Liver Metastases Caused By Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare progression-free survival of patients with resectable colorectal liver metastases treated with neoadjuvant and adjuvant combination chemotherapy with vs without cetuximab. Secondary - Compare the overall survival of patients treated with these regimens. - Compare the quality of life of patients treated with these regimens. - Compare ...


Adjuvant Therapy With Thalidomide for Chemoembolization in Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Chemoembolization (TACE) is used in the majority of advanced hepatocellular carcinomas. Randomized clinical trials indicated that TACE improves overall survival in patients with good liver function (Child-pugh A or B). However, the shortcoming of TACE is obvious: hypoxia induced neoangiogenesis after blockage of blood supply of the tumor; repeat TACE ...


Multimodality Therapy for Palliative Resectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma With Intrahepatic Vessels Invasion

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most common neoplasm and the third cause of cancer-related death. At initial diagnosis, surgical resection is considered a potentially curative modality for HCC[1, 2], with the five-year survival rates for resectable patients 50-60%, however, only about 15% of patients have resectable disease and post-operative ...


Trabectedin for Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Soft Tissue Sarcoma

This study is designed to accommodate individual requests for treatment with trabectedin before the drug becomes commercially available. In regions where trabectedin becomes commercially available and reimbursable in that particular country, an administrative cutoff for further accrual will be set. Subjects with STS who have relapsed following standard of care ...


Trial of Preoperative Hepatic and Regional Arterial Chemotherapy (PHRAC) to Prevent Postoperative Liver Metastasis of Colorectal Cancer

We administered FUDR, MMC and Oxaliplatin as preoperative hepatic and regional arterial chemotherapy (PHRAC) to patients with Stage II or Stage III colorectal cancer without apparent liver metastasis based on a thorough preoperative evaluation. The study endpoints were disease-free survival, overall survival, and liver metastasis-free survival as evaluated by intent-to-treat ...


Early Enteral Feeding After Pylorus Preserving Pancreatoduodenectomy

Pancreaticoduodenectomy is associated with a high incidence of postoperative complications. These postoperative complications could delay postoperative resumption of adequate oral intake. The use of TPN significantly increases postoperative complications, especially those associate with infections. However, method of Nutritional support (Enteral feeding or total parenteral support)after pancreaticoduodenectomy is controversial. 1. To ...


Effect of Iron Depletion by Phlebotomy Plus Lifestyle Changes vs. Lifestyle Changes Alone on Liver Damage in Patients With Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease With Increased Iron Stores

Patients will be randomized to lifestyle changes alone or lifestyle changes associated with iron depletion. Iron depletion will be achieved by removing 350 cc of blood every 10-15 days according to baseline hemoglobin values and venesection tolerance, until ferritin < 30 ng/ml and transferrin saturation < 25%. Weekly phlebotomies will ...


Phase 3 Study of Surgery Combined With Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy(XELOX) in Colorectal Cancer With Resectable Liver Metastasis

Liver metastasis is the most important prognostic factor of colorectal cancer. Reasonable multidisciplinary therapy might improve the prognosis of patients with liver metastasis. Surgery has been the first choice under such situation. Recently, neoadjuvant chemotherapy has also shown its value in unresectable liver metastasis, for it can increase the chance ...
