Feasibility randomized controlled trial of standard care v standard care + acupuncture administered by specially-trained therapy radiographers in patients undergoing radiotherapy. It is a feasibility study to investigate all aspects of a future definitive randomized controlled trial, including statistical power calculation, hence there is no primary outcome or time point. Mixed methods: literature review, model validity, training and mentoring of radiographers, processes, resources, interventions, procedures, patient clinical outcomes, patient and stakeholder qualitative outcomes
This research study is being done to look at new MRI imaging guidance software, Philips Interventional iSuite software, to see if using will improve the physician's ability to quickly place and guide needle tip position for biopsies and ablations.
Study to determine the best dose of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to be administered in combination with immunotherapy drugs including urelumab, cabiralizumab and nivolumab .
The Nutritarian Women's Health Study (NWHS) is a long-term hybrid effectiveness-implementation study on the effect of the Nutritarian Diet on the occurrence, recurrence, and progression of chronic diseases (including all forms of cancer and cardiometabolic risk factors).
NSHDS (Northern Sweden Health and Disease Study) is an umbrella term for a prospective biobank with related survey data. The sample collection consists of three subcohorts, Västerbotten Intervention Programme (VIP), Mammography Screening Project (MA) and MONICA (MONItoring of Trends and Determinants in CArdiovascular Disease). The blood samples are stored at the Northern Sweden Biobank.
This study aims to test the potential of group metacognitive therapy in alleviating emotional distress in cancer survivors. The investigators aim to find out if a group based approach is acceptable to patients and feasible to deliver in a routine clinical health psychology service.
Obesity is associated with increased risk of several cancers. Suggested mechanisms mediating the obesity-cancer associations include hyperinsulinemia and altered IGF signaling, changes in sex hormone levels as well as altered secretion of adipokines and inflammatory proteins. However, little is known about the influence of lifetime adiposity on the relevant biomarkers. Moreover, although diet has been suggested to ameliorate the adverse metabolic effects of obesity, convincing evidence regarding how dietary factors may influence obesity-related carcinogenic pathways remains lacking. Thus, in the current project, the investigators aim to 1) examine the associations between trajectories of body fatness and plasma biomarker levels of the insulin/IGF system, sex hormones and biomarkers of inflammatory response including adipokines; 2) investigate how nutritional factors may modulate these obesity-related biomarkers. The investigators propose to utilize two large ongoing cohorts of US men and women, the Nurses' Health Study and Health Professionals Follow-up Study.
This clinical research studies the physiology and immunology of new-onset post-transplant diabetes mellitus in patients undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT), hyperglycemic clamps, and immune assays will be used to define the mechanisms associated with abnormal glucose homeostasis following stem cell transplantation. Information from this clinical trial could be used to develop standardized screening procedures or to develop optimal treatment strategies for patients developing post-transplant diabetes mellitus.
The study is divided into two parts. The first part of the study will test various doses of ASN007 to find out the highest safe dose to test in five specific groups. The second part of the study will test how well ASN007 can control cancer.
This research studies factors affecting Chinese patient participation in cancer clinical trials and their knowledge regarding clinical trials. The investigators design this study to determining how patients makes decisions about participating in a clinical trial and know about patients' attitude toward clinical trials. The investigators aim to find ways to make cancer clinical trials in China more efficient and satisfied patients participating in clinical trials in China.
