The main objective is to assess the feasibility of an intervention based on medical Ericksonian hypnosis as a complementary therapy in patients treated with surgery after a diagnosis of breast cancer, followed by an indication of adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy
CORALLEEN is a two-arm, randomized, multicentric study in postmenopausal women with primary HR+/HER2 negative Luminal B breast cancer that will explore if the combination of ribociclib with letrozole offers clinical benefit at least comparable to that of standard chemotherapy.
The Stanford Cancer Center is undertaking a Transformation Initiative in order to improve the quality of care, make it more patient-centered and coordinated across the continuum of care. The newest innovation is to introduce lay navigators to specified high-need patients. The larger goal of the project is to assess whether lay navigators can address non-clinical patient needs in a timely fashion and appropriately connect them with their clinical team when warranted. It is expected that proactive interaction with patients will decrease patient anxiety/stress related to their cancer and facilitate higher patient engagement and improved management of physical, social,and emotional health. For the pilot project, the smaller goal is to understand: how lay navigator time is used; the types and frequency of issues brought up by patients; resources that patients are given or referred to; type and frequency of mode of contact with patients; and patients' acceptance of navigators based on refusal. An electronic intake form will be used to collect this information so that data can be analyzed regularly and informed change can be made to the navigator program as needed
POC Medical Systems has developed a Point of Care system for the screening of breast cancer in the general population. Via a proprietary algorithm, the MammoAlert™ is expected to determine breast cancer's risk level for a subject by identifying the presence in plasma of known biomarkers. The present study aims to determine the Sensitivity and Specificity of the test in plasma samples of subjects of whom the status vis-à-vis breast cancer is known.
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of a lifestyle intervention. The study will examine the Stay on Track program, dietary and activity patterns, body composition, biomarkers and quality of life in breast cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.
This is a single-center, open-label, dose-escalating study to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, immunogenicity, and preliminary efficacy of single and multiple subcutaneous injection TK006 in patients with breast cancer-related bone metastases.
CAROLE seeks to evaluate the relationship between chest Radiation Therapy and coronary artery disease. The purpose of CAROLE is to check the heart health of women who received breast cancer treatments in the past and protect them from future heart disease.
The Purpose Project intervention is an 8-session progressive structure that was developed based on theoretical and scientific evidence from psychology and occupational therapy. The goal of the intervention is to provide participants with information, tools, and support that help them move towards reclaiming a sense of self-grounded purpose in daily life. The study will use a convenience sample of women with breast cancer to evaluate the feasibility of the Purpose Project intervention in terms of demand/acceptability, implementation, and limited-efficacy testing. Findings will be used to inform a later study to evaluate the efficacy of the Purpose Project intervention.
Surgical site infection (SSI) after breast and axillary surgery occurs more often than for other clean surgical procedures. Infection in the setting of sick woman could delay the adjuvant therapy and result increase morbidity and mortality. Also this increased costs associated with health care.Surgical drains have been noted as a potential source for surgical site infections. The primary aim of the study is to determine if chlorhexidine occlusive dressings applied to the intervention drain sites effectively decreases rates of bacterial colonization in drain fluid and drain tips compared to standard care.
Background: Some women with breast cancer and ovarian cancer are genetically predisposed to them. This is called hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC). The women have to make hard choices about tests and treatment. Researchers want to study the best way to guide them. A kind of writing exercise might help if it is done before genetic counseling. It is called a self-affirmation (SA) exercise. It may lead to better communication in the counseling and better behavioral outcomes. Objective: To test if an SA exercise done with HBOC genetic counseling could improve client communication and behavior. Eligibility: Adults ages 18-90 with an appointment at the HBOC clinic at St. Luke s Health System Adults ages 18-90 who are genetic counselors with breast and ovarian cancer clients Design: Appointment participants will be screened by phone. They will arrive 15 minutes early to their appointment. They will do a 10- to 15-minute survey and writing exercise. This includes questions about: If they have cancer If they have had or were offered genetic counseling Things that are important to them After the appointment, they will take a 10- to 15-minute follow-up survey. It can be in the office or online. It includes questions about how they felt about the writing exercise and their counseling. Counselor participants will take a 2- to 5-minute survey after sessions with clients in the study. This includes questions about how the client was in the session. They will take a 10- to 15-minute survey at the end of the study. It will be about their opinions of the writing exercise.
