This is a phase I trial to determine the maximum tolerated dose of carbon ion radiotherapy for the treatment of locally advanced, unresectable, pancreatic cancer.
At present, Watson for Oncology has been applied in 14 countries worldwide, including China, the United States, Holland, Thailand, India, Korea, Poland, Slovakia and Bangladesh. In a double-blind study involving 362 patients in India, treatment recommendations from Watson for Oncology (WFO) performed a high degree of consistency with their multidisciplinary tumor board. The investigators would recruit cancer patients diagnosed as lung cancer, breast cancer, gastric cancer, colon cancer， rectal cancer，cervical cancer or ovarian cancer according to the criteria of Watson for Oncology ，using the updated version of Watson for Oncology to explore the concordance of therapeutic regimen between WFO and physicians in the Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University.
The purpose of this study is to investigate experimental medication BMS-986253 in combination with Nivolumab in patients with advanced cancers.
This research study is evaluating a new way to deliver oncology care for patients with cancer
This is an open-labeled, single-center, Phase I study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of adding apatinib to ongoing nivolumab treatment in patients with unresectable or metastatic cancer. Approximately 9-18 subjects in Phase I dose escalation phase and up to 12 additional subjects in Part II expansion phase. Total study duration will be approximately 12 months: 6 months of recruitment plus 6 months of treatment.
The Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Network is in its third phase and during this time is enrolling and sequencing 25,000 individuals on a custom sequencing panel of clinically relevant, actionable genes. The genetic results will be returned to participants and outcomes tracked through the electronic health records.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the clinical efficacy and toxicity of anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody plus autologous dendritic cells-cytokine induced killer cell (DC-CIK) immunotherapy combined with hyperthermia in advanced malignant mesothelioma patients.Furthermore,to characterize response to therapy,the investigators intent to explore the predictive biomarker for this regimen.
This study aims to evaluate a theoretically and empirically grounded implementation program designed to foster shared decision-making in routine cancer care. The intervention program consists of several components (e.g. training for health care professionals, patient empowerment strategies) that will be rolled out in three clinics at a comprehensive cancer center in Germany.
The purpose of this research is to develop patient-centered palliative care interventions to improve patient-provider communication and Quality of Life (QoL) of ethnic and racial minority patients living with life-limiting illnesses. Eliciting personal experiences is an effective way for patients to communicate their cultural values and beliefs. This study will assess how to integrate the patients' personal experience narratives into the electronic health record (EHR). The primary hypothesis is that the implementation of a patient-centered intervention to elicit personal experiences that are included in the EHR will improve patient-provider communication and patients' QoL.
Protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) is a frequent condition in patients suffering from cancer, especially the elderly. According to some studies, this malnutrition has important consequences in this population, by increasing the risk of treatment toxicities, premature interruption of chemotherapy, mortality and risks of complications. Identifying cases of malnutrition is an objective pursued by the National Nutrition and Health Programme and an important task of the "Unités de Coordination en Oncogériatrie". The main goal of this study is to assess the loss of weight over the 6 month-period preceding the cancer treatment, regardless of kind (chemotherapy, targeted therapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, comfort care), in the elderly suffering from cancer.
