What is a clinical trial?

Although there are many definitions of clinical trials, they are generally considered to be biomedical or health-related research studies in human beings that follow a pre-defined protocol. We have both interventional & observational types of studies. Interventional studies are those in which the research subjects are assigned by the investigator to a treatment or other intervention, and their outcomes are measured. Observational studies are those in which individuals are observed and their outcomes are measured by the investigators.

Background: - Some people with gastrointestinal or ovarian cancer also have ascites. That is free fluid built up in the abdomen.

Objective: - To look at the immune markers the ascites of people with gastrointestinal or ovarian cancer. Eligibility: - Adults age 18 and older with a malignancy of the GI tract or metastatic ovarian cancer. As a result, they have ascites in the abdomen. Design: - Participants will be screened with: - Medical history, physical exam, and blood tests. - Echocardiogram: sound waves make images of the heart. - Electrocardiogram: measures electrical activity of the heart. - Paracentesis: a needle will be inserted in the abdomen and will remove some of the ascites fluid. - They may have a tumor biopsy. - Participants will get AZD9150 through a vein for 3 hours. They will get this 6 times in cycle 1 and 4 times all other cycles. Each cycle is 28 days. - Each cycle, participants will: - Have a physical exam. - Have blood tests weekly. - Be asked about how they feel and any medicines they are taking. - After every 2 cycles (about every 2 months), participants will have scans and x-rays of their tumor. - Participants will have paracentesis 2 more times during the study. They will have another echocardiogram. - At the end of therapy, participants will have a physical exam and blood tests. They will be asked about how they feel and any medicines they are taking.
