NCT ID: NCT03367767 Recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS2) 10-year Follow-On

Start date: December 15, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Background: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts are two eye diseases. They were studied in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS2) and the AREDS2 Follow-On study. These studies followed the natural course of the diseases. They also provided data on the long-term effects of certain oral supplements on AMD. Objective: To study the long-term effects of oral supplements on several things. These include incidences of lung cancer, development of late AMD, cataract surgery, cognitive function, and cardiovascular events. Eligibility: Former AREDS2 and AREDS2 Follow-On participants Design: Participants will have 1 visit. It will include: An eye exam that tests how well participants can see, measures eye pressure, and checks eye movements. The pupil will be dilated with eye drops. Pictures will be taken of the retina and the inside of the eye. Participants will grip a device in their hand to measure their grip strength. A blood sample will be taken. This will be stored for future genetic research. Cells may be created from the sample. A small sample of skin will be taken. Sponsoring Institution: National Eye Institute

NCT ID: NCT03363776 Recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

An Immuno-Therapy Study of Experimental Medication BMS-986277 Given Alone and in Combination With Nivolumab in Epithelial Cancers

Start date: November 24, 2017
Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to investigate experimental medication BMS-986277 given alone and in combination with Nivolumab in patients with epithelial cancer.

NCT ID: NCT03360695 Not yet recruiting - Breast Cancer Clinical Trials

BRIDGE: Proactive Psychiatry Consultation and Case Management for Patients With Cancer

Start date: December 11, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this research is to understand if it is helpful for patients with mental illness to be connected to a psychiatrist and case manager at the time of cancer diagnosis.

NCT ID: NCT03360474 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Implementation of a Delirium Screening

Start date: February 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this project is to improve patient outcomes in individuals affected by cancer, through the implementation of a delirium screening and treatment protocol in the ICU setting. The hypothesis is that patients who receive an accurate and early diagnosis of delirium coupled with a standardized intervention protocol will demonstrate improved patient outcomes as evidenced by fewer days spent in the ICU, fewer days spent in the hospital (overall length of stay) and the need for less sedative medication throughout their ICU stay as compared to patient data prior to the implementation of a delirium protocol.

NCT ID: NCT03357861 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Cancer Patients Treated With Immunotherapy in Intensive Care Unit

IMMUNO-REA
Start date: February 1, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

This work aims to describe the characteristics and methods of management of patients suffering from a solid tumor treated with immunotherapy admitted to intensive care.

NCT ID: NCT03357848 Recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Impact of Caloric and Protein Adequacy on Postoperative Clinical Outcomes of Patients Undergoing Major Abdominal Surgery

Start date: December 19, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The role of nutritional therapy (TN) in the surgical patient is well described in the literature and is associated with reductions in postoperative complications, length of hospital stay, and mortality. Adequate determination of caloric and protein requirements is an essential step in the TN institution, avoiding hypoalimentation and hyperalimentation. Thus, it is essential to understand the changes in energy expenditure after surgery and its relation with nutritional status. In addition, little is known about the effect of nutritional therapy and caloric adequacy on parameters such as phase angle and dynamometry. Thus, the objective of this study is to evaluate the changes in energy expenditure after major abdominal surgeries and to evaluate the phase angle and dynamometry as possible markers of nutritional therapy. Energy expenditure will be assessed by indirect calorimetry. Functionality will be assessed by means of dynamometry and 6-minute walk test. Nutritional diagnosis will be given through subjective global assessment. Energy and protein intake will be monitored and registered daily. Phase angle will be obtained by performing bioelectrical impedance.

NCT ID: NCT03356340 Active, not recruiting - Diabetes Clinical Trials

The Singapore Chinese Health Study

SCHS
Start date: April 1, 1993
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The "Singapore Chinese Health Study" is a cohort study established by the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health in National University of Singapore, together with collaborators from several universities in the United States of America. This is a long-term study to help doctors and scientists understand the influence of diet, lifestyle and environment on the development of common diseases among Singaporean men and women. This includes cancer, heart disease, stroke, dementia, osteoporosis, high cholesterol and diabetes. The aim is to help us understand the causes of these diseases and to discover effective and efficient approaches for prevention and treatment.

NCT ID: NCT03356171 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Cardiac Coherence Combined With Personal Physical Activity in Patients With Cancer

APACCHE
Start date: January 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

APACCHE (Adapted Physical Activity and Cardiac Coherence in HEmatologic patients) study investigates effects of heart rate variability biofeedback training, combined with classical adapted physical activity, on health-related quality of life in patients previously treated for hematologic malignancies. It is a prospective, randomized clinical trial from University Hospital of Reunion Island. The main objective is evaluated with QLQ-C30 survey score differences.

NCT ID: NCT03352934 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of the AveNEC trial is to investigate the clinical activity and safety of avelumab in patients with NEC G3 (WHO 2010), including "NET G3" who are progressive after first line chemotherapy.
