NCT ID: NCT03041571 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

Impact of Early Implementation of Narrative Medicine Techniques on Patient Centered Attitudes of Medical Students

Start date: March 1, 2017
Phase:
Study type: Observational

A qualitative study assessing the impact of early narrative medicine practice on Medical Honors Program (MHP) students' attitudes regarding patient-centered interactions, through interviewing patients with chronic or life-limiting illnesses to obtain their illness stories. MHP students will develop a patient narrative for the patients interviewed. These narratives will be edited by the patient, and, with the permission of the patients, may be published as a collection of stories.

NCT ID: NCT02317341 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

Effect of Ketamine on Fatigue Following Cancer Therapy

Start date: December 13, 2014
Phase: Early Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

Background: - Fatigue is a common side effect of cancer and its treatment. No medications can treat this fatigue. Researchers want to see if the drug ketamine can improve fatigue after radiation therapy for cancer. They will compare the effects of ketamine on fatigue to midazolam, a sedative with similar effects. Objectives: - To better understand fatigue in people who completed radiation therapy for cancer. To look at the effects of a dose of ketamine on fatigue. Eligibility: - Adults 18 and older who completed radiation therapy for cancer and are enrolled in NIH protocol 08-NR-0132. Design: - Participants will be screened with medical history, physical exam, and blood and urine tests. They will complete questionnaires about their fatigue and take a breath alcohol test. - The study is divided into 2 phases: - During the first phase I visit, participants will have blood taken. They will talk about their fatigue and other symptoms. They will take thinking and handgrip strength tests. Then they will get either ketamine or placebo (midazolam) through an intravenous line, placed by a needle guided by a thin plastic tube into an arm vein. - Participants will have a follow-up phone call within 1 day. - Participants will have phase I visits 3, 7, and 14 days after infusion. For the 3- and 7-day visits, participants will take thinking and handgrip strength tests. They will complete questionnaires, talk about infusion side effects, and have blood taken. For the 14-day visit, they will talk about their fatigue and infusion side effects. They will start phase II that day. - Phase II visits are the same as phase I, except that the 14-day visit is over the phone.

NCT ID: NCT02291055 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

Phase 1-2 Study of ADXS11-001 or MEDI4736 Alone or Combo In Cervical or HPV+ Head & Neck Cancer

Start date: April 2015
Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

Part A: (ADXS11-001 + MEDI4736 Combination Therapy) will determine the safety and tolerability of the combination and to identify a RP2D. Part B: Phase 2 design which will randomize subjects 1:1 to either MEDI4736 alone or MEDI4736+ADXS11-001 in subjects who have failed at least 1 prior systemic treatment for their recurrent/persistent or metastatic cervical cancer.

NCT ID: NCT01604863 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

A Study of HGS1036 in Combination With Chemotherapy in Subjects With Advanced Solid Malignancies

Start date: June 2012
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

The primary purpose of this study is to determine the maximally tolerated dose (MTD) of HGS1036 when used in combination with the standard chemotherapeutic regimens paclitaxel plus carboplatin, cisplatin plus etoposide, or docetaxel.

NCT ID: NCT01050725 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

Pilot Study of Biomarkers for Radiation Therapy

Start date: November 2009
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The purpose of this study is to determine whether specific assays of DNA damage repair proteins can be used in patients undergoing radiation therapy. The ultimate goal of this research is to develop clinically useful biomarkers from blood samples that could be used to customize radiation treatment for individuals, leading to reduced side effects and improved outcomes.

NCT ID: NCT00523094 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

Vibration Response Imaging (VRI) in Patients That Are Candidates for Undergoing Pulmonary Operation Procedure

Start date: September 2007
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The primary objective of this study is to estimate the accuracy of the pre-operative VRI quantitative results versus the gold standard pre-operative perfusion scan. The secondary objective is to assess the correlation of the predicted post-operative lung function with the observed post-operative lung function (forced expiratory volume in 1 second [FEV1] and diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide [DLCO]) in patients who underwent surgical resection.

NCT ID: NCT00499499 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

A Dose Escalation Study of E7107 Administered Intravenously on Days 1 and 8 Every 21 Days to Patients With Solid Tumors

Start date: July 2007
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to investigate E7107 in patients with solid tumors. This is an open label, dose-escalation study of E7107. The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of the single agent will be established by determining the occurrence of dose limiting toxicities during the first three weeks of therapy (Cycle 1). Patients in this study will be treated at multiple dose levels, starting at 0.6 mg/m^2. Patients will receive E7107 as a 30-minute intravenous infusion on Days 1 and 8 every 21 Days.

NCT ID: NCT00460278 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

Study of XL418 in Adults With Solid Tumors

Start date: April 2007
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of XL418 in subjects with solid tumors. XL418 is a new chemical entity that inhibits a spectrum of targets, including Akt and p70S6K, that mediate PI3 Kinase / PTEN signaling.

NCT ID: NCT00459823 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

A Dose Escalation Study of E7107 Administered IV (Bolus) on Days 1, 8, and 15 Every 28 Days to Patients With Solid Tumours

Start date: May 2007
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

Two-centre, open-label, non-randomized, dose-finding phase I study to determine the MTD of E7107 administered by intravenous infusion (as a 2-5 minutes bolus) on days 1, 8 and 15 every 28 days in patients with solid tumors, for whom therapy of proven efficacy does not exist or is not longer effective.

NCT ID: NCT00375830 Suspended - Cancer Clinical Trials

Combined 18F NaF/18F FDG PET/MRI for Detection of Skeletal Metastases

Start date: January 2006
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

This clinical trial studies sodium fluorine-18 (18F NaF)/fluorine-18 (18F) fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detecting skeletal metastases in patients with stage III-IV breast cancer or stage II-IV prostate cancer. 18F NaF and 18F FDG are radioactive substances that are absorbed by cancerous cells and allow for the cancer to be found using diagnostic procedures such as PET/MRI. PET/MRI is a procedure that combines detailed pictures of areas inside the body from PET and MRI scans and may help find and diagnose skeletal metastases in patients with breast or prostate cancer. It is not yet known whether 18F NaF/18F FDG PET/MRI is better than standard imaging methods in detecting skeletal metastases.
