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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Patients will be treated for 2 consecutive chemo cycles with the study drug for one and placebo for the other. In addition, patients will receive an injection before the chemo, either ondansetron (if receiving placebo inhalation) or normal saline) if receiving active study drug. They will take study medication for 3 days, 4 times daily and fill out VAS scores before and after doses. Patients will be given rescue medication with each dose.
