This study will perform tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL)-based adoptive T-cell therapy in combination with checkpoint inhibition on cancer patients across all cancer diagnoses.
For patients with an advanced disease and their families an excellent and compassionate care is essential. However, in hospitals optimal end-of-life care is not yet fully realized and patient's needs are often not met. Palliative care is able to increase patients' quality of life and to carefully meet their and their families' needs. To improve the awareness of unmet needs patient-reported outcome measurement has been the pivot of latest palliative care research. Besides the improvement of care outcome measurement allows the evaluation of the quality of palliative care and comparisons on a national and international level. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the quality of palliative care in different settings (palliative care unit, inpatient and outpatient consultation teams) using the Integrated Palliative Care Outcome Scale (IPOS). The IPOS has been lately developed as improved follow-up version of the Palliative Care Outcome Scale (POS) integrating most important questions and simultaneously being brief and comprehensive. The study is planned as a multi-centric observational study. Primary endpoint is the reduction of symptom burden of patients. The clinical study hypothesis bases on the assumption that palliative care can change the symptom burden, measured by a change in the IPOS overall profile score, and that there might be a difference in the size of the effect depending on the caring setting.
This study is to determine the safety, feasibility and acceptability of an 8-week cognitive remediation training (CRT) in patients treated for cancer. The secondary objective of the study is to estimate the effect size of CRT in improving neurocognitive functioning and quality of life. This is a single-arm proof of concept study. Patients treated for cancer with persistent cognitive complaints will be recruited from the outpatient clinic of the VA Comprehensive Cancer Center, West Haven, CT, Yale Medicine, and greater New Haven community.The active treatment phase will be followed by an assessment at the conclusion of treatment to evaluate changes in cognitive function and quality of life. Participants will be invited back to participate in a final follow-up assessment 2 months later.
This study evaluates the use of actigraphy-derived measures to improve prognostication in patients with advanced cancer.
This project aims to create a digital platform for personal, clinical, diagnostic and environmental data collection, management and analysis of patients with cardiovascular and neurological disease or cancer admitted to the Neuromed Group clinics, associated with a biobanks of biological fluids and human tissues and a biotechnological platform for "omics" analysis, to encourage personalized, preventative and predictive care.
The pharmacist, as a specialist of medications, occupies a strategic position: he participates in a global care of their patients. Dispensation is the pharmaceutical act which associates with the dispensing of medications "the pharmaceutical analysis of the medical prescription if it exists, the possible preparation of the doses to be administered and the provisions of the information and advices necessary for the proper use of medications". The pharmacist ensures that the quality and safety of the dispensation is guaranteed at all times by limiting as far as possible the risks associated with an error in delivery, prescription, drug interactions or undetected contraindications, inadequate dosages or non-compliance with treatment. The longer the patient feels satisfied with the stage of delivery of his treatment, the better his adherence to treatment is, and the less he will encounter poor compliance. Oncology has particularly benefited in recent years from the introduction of numerous drugs with the aim of extending the duration of response in a growing number of indications. Traditionally in oncology, chemotherapy treatments are administered intravenously by trained personnel and rarely managed by the patient at home. Recently, there has been a growing choice of oral formulations, whether for conventional hormonal, anticancer therapies or targeted therapies. These specialties are now widely available in community pharmacies. Oral administration puts the patient at the center of his therapeutic management. He must take his medication alone. Adherence and compliance are therefore particularly important here for an optimal risk-benefit ratio. This study project is designed to evaluate the satisfaction of patients undergoing oral chemotherapy treated for a cancer pathology and whose treatment is provided by their community pharmacies. It also needs to provide information about the reasons for their poor adherence to treatment (personal factors, factors attributable to treatment, factors attributable to the care system). Patients will be recruited and interviewed by contacting several departments of the Clermont-Ferrand University Hospital (CHU de Clermont-Ferrand), who are used to caring for patients with cancerous diseases (hematology, urology, respiratory, gastro-enterology). The data collected in this study may be used for subsequent studies evaluating new management strategies or therapeutic education to improve adherence to patient treatment.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of arts-based programming on health, well-being, and resilience. Patients who have cancer or are the caregivers of someone with cancer are being asked to take part in this study.
This study seeks to enroll patients receiving a Survivorship Care Plan following curative therapy for cancer. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive usual care or to be followed by a Patient Navigator as part of their Survivorship Care Plan.
This study aimed to compare the efficacy of music therapy and midazolam 0,02 mg/kgBW in reducing preoperative anxiety on patients undergoing brachytherapy with spinal anesthesia
The purpose of this study is to test the potential of a relatively simple serum assay that aims to identify patient subpopulations whose curative radiotherapy outcome is likely to be compromised by radiobiological tumour hypoxia (prognostic value) and who are most likely to gain (predictive value) from the addition of radiation sensitiser drugs or targeted radiotherapy dose escalation.
