This research study aims to explore the feasibility and acceptability of an adapted resiliency group program, called the Relaxation Response Resiliency Program (3RP-AYA), to reduce stress and promote stress-management among adolescents and young adults who have completed treatment for cancer.
This is an open-label, multicenter, extension study. Patients who are receiving clinical benefit from atezolizumab monotherapy or atezolizumab in combination with other agent(s) or comparator agent(s) during participation in a Genentech or Roche-sponsored study (the parent study), who are eligible to continue treatment and who do not have access to the study treatment locally, may continue to receive study treatment in this extension study following roll-over from the parent study.
Rural patients with life-limiting illness are at very high risk of not receiving appropriate care due to a lack of health professionals, long distances to treatment centers, and limited palliative care (PC) clinical expertise. Secondly, although culture strongly influences people's response to diagnosis, illness and treatment preferences, culturally-based care models are not currently available for most seriously-ill rural patients and their family caregivers. Lack of sensitivity to cultural differences may compromise PC for minority patients. The purpose of this study is to compare a culturally-based Tele-consult program to usual hospital care to determine whether a culturally-based PC Tele-consult program leads to lower symptom burden in hospitalized African American and White older adults with a life-limiting illness.
It has been reported that peripheral and lymph node resident Cluster of Differentiation 4 (CD4)+ T cells expressing Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) contribute to Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) persistence during Antiretroviral Therapy (ART). In HIV-infected individuals, PD-1 expression on CD4+ T cells correlates with HIV disease progression, and loss of HIV-specific CD4+ T cell function can be reversed in vitro by PD-1 blockade. There are only a limited number of case reports describing the evolution of HIV-infected patients with concurrent oncological disease treated with immunological checkpoint inhibitors. However, this case provides very limited information on the effect of pembrolizumab on the HIV reservoir. Here, the investigators aim at describing changes in the HIV reservoir and in the HIV-specific immunity in HIV-infected patients on ART who receive immunological checkpoint inhibitors for the treatment of cancer, especially for metastatic melanoma.
RPL-001-16 is a Phase 1/2, open label, dose escalation and expansion clinical study of RP1 alone and in combination with nivolumab in adult subjects with advanced and/or refractory solid tumors, to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D), as well as to evaluate preliminary efficacy.
Reference treatment for soft tissue or bone sarcoma is the Monobloc resection surgery, with a margin of one to many millimeters removing the entire tumor leaving no cancer cells, associated or not with other treatments. Other musculoskeletal malignant tumors, some of them with secondary origins (metastases), are treated the same way. Patients with soft tissue and bone tumor could have heavy sequels of this surgery procedure, depending on the localization and size of the initial tumor. Those functional sequels are evaluated by specific questionnaires: the questionnaire TESS for upper limbs and TESS for lower limbs which are completed by the patient (depending on the localization of the tumor) and the questionnaire MSTS which is completed by the medical doctor. Those English validated questionnaires are frequently used by French surgeons in standard practice as well as scientific research. The translations done have never been validated by an official methodology. The aim of this trial is to validate the TESS and MSTS questionnaires linguistically, culturally (questions must be adapted for each target population: occidental adults and adolescents population, male and female population and adapted to the current era), and scientifically (repeatability). The validation of those questionnaires will permit to have functional and reference questionnaires in French language which could be used for the follow up of operated patient in the context of the care and clinical research.
It is a non-randomized pilot study.The allocation will be determined by patients or their immediate family members who were cooperative with physician's interpretations on the disease progression and updated information of cutting of edge treatment, the financial affordability, availability of treatment plans, possible tolerance or risks etc.The purpose of this study is to investigate the clinical efficacy and toxicity of autologous cellular immunotherapy combined with hyperthermia in abdominal and pelvic malignancies or metastases patients. Furthermore, to characterize response to different regimens,the investigators intent to explore the predictive and prognostic biomarker, as well as the changes in immune repertoire.
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships between objectively measured physical activity and provider-assessed and patient-reported functional outcomes in patients with advanced cancer. Findings from this study will help us better understand how change in daily physical activity, as measured using the wearable activity monitor, is related to change in a patient's functional status and clinical condition.
Formal hypnosis is a non-drug technique known to decrease anxiety and pain during the preoperative procedure. In brachytherapy, the practice of hypnosis has been shown to be feasible and beneficial for patients treated for prostate cancer The goal of the study is to demonstrate the added value of hypnosis during a brachytherapy detachment by improving the comfort of the patient. The investigators want to evaluate the contribution of hypnosis during brachytherapy detachment by quantifying the anxiety and pain felt by the patient during the procedure.
Cancer and cancer treatments are accompanied by several possible side effects, such as nausea, hot flashes, fatigue, drowsiness, etc. Complementary and integrative therapies, such as acupuncture, could be used to manage these symptoms. The aim of this study for our research team is to have an idea of the interest of cancer patients and caregivers in acupuncture. This is a prospective, interventional study. Cancer patients and caregivers will be approached at the day care clinic by a health care worker to participate in this study. They will be asked to complete a questionnaire about their interest in acupuncture and their motivation, what symptoms they would need it for, where they would like this acupuncture to take place, whether they are willing to pay for it, and whether they would be interested in an information session about acupuncture.
