The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of the study drug known as LY3039478 in combination with other anticancer agents in participants with advanced or metastatic solid tumors.
The study evaluates impact of high dose radiation on overall survival in patients with unresectable nonmetastatic cholangiocarcinoma. The study randomizes patient between systemic chemotherapy alone and systemic chemotherapy and high dose radiation
The primary objective of this study is to estimate the frequency of FGFR2 fusions in archived intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA) or mixed hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma (HCC-CCA) tumor samples
This randomized clinical trial studies how well high volume washing of the abdomen works in increasing survival after surgery in patients with pancreatic cancer that can be removed by surgery. High volume washings may remove free floating cancers present after surgery and help prolong survival in patients with pancreatic cancer.
Increasing rates of highly malignant hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and biliary tract cancers (GBTC) observed in Western populations may be related to obesogenic lifestyle factors and their metabolic consequences, such as metabolic syndrome (MetS), inflammation and altered production of bile acids (BA). Such lifestyle behaviours may induce changes in the gut microflora which in turn affect BA profiles, increasing their carcinogenicity. Some elevated BA may be oncogenic in exposed liver, bile ducts and gall bladder. Vertical sleeve gastrectomy may change bile acid composition. The aims of this study are: 1. whether specific presurgical bila acid profiles are predictive of efficacy of vertical sleeve gastrectomy, reflective of liver function and metabolic dysfunction; 2. whether specific presurgical bile acid profiles are predictive of the efficacy of sleeve gastrectomy
To determine the safety and efficacy of photodynamic therapy with a novel photosensitizer and a flexible laser probe in locally advanced hilar cholangiocarcinoma.
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate objective response rate (ORR) as per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 of JNJ-42756493 in a molecularly-defined subset of Asian participants with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), gastric cancer, urothelial cancer, esophageal cancer and cholangiocarcinoma.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical feasibility and short-term outcome of switching monopolar RFA using a separable cluster electrode in patients with primary and secondary liver malignancies.
Multi-centric, observational, prospective study, designed for pts with diagnosis of all-stages cholangiocarcinoma, including rare and crossing-over histological types, and excluding gallbladder cancer and ampullary carcinoma.
Malignant obstructive jaundice is a common complication of advanced stage cholangiocarcinoma, GB cancer, and pancreatic cancer. In biliary stricture by malignancy, biliary drainage with placement of self-expanding metal stent (SEMS) for palliation is the therapy of choice in these patients. On hilar biliary malignant obstruction, bilateral stent used to be inserted. There are two kinds of bilateral metal stent insertion methods in hilar biliary malignant obstruction. (Stent in stent vs. side by side) Previously, two studies was conducted to show the superiority of bilateral metal stent insertion between stent in stent and side by side. Biliary drainage and stent patency was a little superior in side by side than stent in stent. But, complication related with bilateral metal stent was increased in patients with side by side method. Another study showed that there was no significant difference between those bilateral stent insertion methods. The most important concern about side by side method is associated with portal vein thrombosis by bilateral stent diameter. Selection of proper stent insertion method in patients with hilar malignant biliary obstruction is still controversial. The purpose of this study is to investigate the patency of stent and survival of patients in side by side method (6mm sized M type) compared to stent in stent method (10mm sized LCD type) in patient with hilar malignant biliary obstruction.
