The purpose of this project is to improve patient outcomes in individuals affected by cancer, through the implementation of a delirium screening and treatment protocol in the ICU setting. The hypothesis is that patients who receive an accurate and early diagnosis of delirium coupled with a standardized intervention protocol will demonstrate improved patient outcomes as evidenced by fewer days spent in the ICU, fewer days spent in the hospital (overall length of stay) and the need for less sedative medication throughout their ICU stay as compared to patient data prior to the implementation of a delirium protocol.
The collection and analysis of family, medical, lifestyle, and environmental exposure history (a Comprehensive Health History or "CHH") can identify critical risk factors for many chronic and life-threatening conditions, including cancer. Despite its importance, CHH is infrequently documented and analyzed in primary-care medical practice due to numerous hurdles, and currently available tools have proven inadequate to address this critical problem. This study will evaluate the Virtual Agent Linked Intelligent Disease Assessment Tool Engine ("VALIDATE") system as an easy to administer, accurate, cost-effective, and clinically useful tool for collecting and analyzing structured CHH data.
30 Gy single fraction of SBRT for lung metastases will result in comparable oncologic outcomes to 18Gy in three fractions (or dosing to a BED </-100Gy at the discretion of the radiation oncologist) with respect to disease control and toxicity.
Present clinical study will be conducted in China to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of single and repeat oral doses of trametinib, the safety profile and the clinical activity in Chinese subjects with solid tumor. Approximately 10 evaluable subjects will be enrolled in the study, Subjects will receive trametinib 2 mg once daily (QD). Study treatment will continue until disease progression, death or unacceptable toxicity. The study will be completed after all subjects have discontinued from study treatment or last enrolled subject has had at least 16 weeks of follow-up, whichever occurs first.
SNX-5422 is a prodrug of SNX-2112, a potent, highly selective, small molecule inhibitor of the molecular chaperone heat shock protein 90 (HSP90). Hsp90 inhibitors may overcome ibrutinib resistance in Mantle cell lymphomas and this study will investigate whether the addition of SNX-5422 to an established dose of ibrutinib will result in the removal of mutated BTK from blood mononuclear cells and/or prevents or delays disease progression of subjects with CLL
This is a two center, open label, non-randomized Phase II study of lenvatinib in adult subjects with recurrent or refractory advanced cancers with aberration(s) in FGF/FGFR signaling. Treatment will consist of daily oral administration of Lenvatinib in 28-day cycles.
Weight loss and muscle wasting commonly occurs in patients with cancer, negatively influencing their quality of life, treatment response and survival. Weight changes in patients with cancer may be the consequence of energy imbalance and disturbances in protein metabolism, poor treatment tolerance, hormonal alterations, systemic inflammation etc. This results in body composition modifications in favor of fat gain and/or lean body mass loss in early stage cancer. However, in advanced cancer mostly loss of both fat mass and lean mass has been found. Unfortunately, gains in muscle mass are difficult to achieve. In a previous study of the Investigators, a bolus (15 g) of an essential amino acid mixture as present in milk protein was able to stimulate whole-body protein anabolism equally and effectively in weight-losing patients with lung cancer. This indicates the high potential of proteins with high essential amino acids as therapeutic agents to increase muscle mass in these patients. However, the dose-response effect to reach optimal whole-body protein anabolism is yet unknown and can differ among patients. Therefore, the Investigators would like to study the effects of several dosages of a protein with high essential amino acid levels, administered by sip feeding, on whole-body protein anabolism in patients with cancer in comparison with healthy older adults. Furthermore, the individual protein requirements of cancer patients may be established as this is the cornerstone of nutritional support. Specifically to establish 'the anabolic threshold', when protein breakdown equals synthesis and the response and the relation between protein intake and net protein synthesis are critical.
This study evaluates the effectiveness of Tumor Associated Peptide Antigens (TAPA) pulsed dendritic cell injections as a potential consolidation therapy for patients with metastatic solid malignancies (SM). The investigators hypothesize that treatment of patients with metastatic SM who demonstrate a tumor response, or whose disease remains stable, after conventional first-line systemic therapy AND who lack an available, potentially curative therapeutic intervention and whose tumor cells and/or blood express at least one (1) TAPA of a defined panel of TAPAs will result in TAPA-specific T-cell responses without significant toxicities. The investigators also hypothesize CD4+ and CD8+ T-cell responses generated against specific TAPAs may translate into clinical antitumor activity.
The IPTLD QoL Broad Study.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a nutritional strategy is effective in critically ill patients with cancer diagnosed with refeeding syndrome.
