Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is the treatment of choice for resectable periampullary cancer. PD is still associated with a relatively a high incidence of delayed gastric emptying. And, there are no acknowledged strategies to avoid DGE. Several feeding strategies have been investigated to cope with this problem. However, there is still no consensus concerning the best nutrition support method after pancreaticoduodenectomy. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of nutrition support methods on DGE after pancreaticoduodenectomy: early enteral nutrition or total parenteral nutrition. Patients undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy will be randomized to receive early enteral nutrition (EN group), or Saline administration (Saline group), or oral intake only (Natural control). The EN group will receive standard enteral diet administered through a nasojejunal tube. Enteral nutrition will be started on the 1st postoperative day and increased daily by 20-40 ml up to the estimated level. The Saline group will receive saline administered through a nasojejunal tube beginning from the 1st postoperative day. Oral intake will not be restricted in all three group.
The purpose of this first-in-human study of CX-2009 is to characterize the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and antitumor activity of CX-2009 in adult subjects with metastatic or locally advanced unresectable solid tumors.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability, and determine the maximum tolerated dose of INCB062079 in subjects with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma and other malignancies.
Primary Objective: To assess the diagnostic accuracy of cholangioscopy-based assessment using SpyDS technology compared to cholangiography-based assessment using ERCP-guided biopsy and brushing in patients with indeterminate biliary strictures in the setting of cholangiocarcinoma.
This pilot research trial studies characterization of mechanical tissue properties in patients with pancreatic, liver, or colon cancer. Mechanical properties and stiffness of the cancerous tissue may be correlated with the standard pathology report that describes the stage of the disease.
The aim of the multi-centre study is to evaluate correctly the impact of three-dimensional visualization on operation strategy and complications for hilar cholangiocarcinoma.
This phase I trial studies the side effects of capecitabine and Y-90 radioembolization in treating patients with bile duct cancer in the liver that has spread to other places in the body and cannot be removed by surgery. Radiation therapy, such as Y-90 radioembolization, injects tiny radioactive Y-90 microspheres into the blood supply next to the liver tumors to kill tumor cells. Capecitabine may make radiation more effective. Giving capecitabine and Y-90 radioembolization may work better in treating patients with bile duct cancer in the liver.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of normal temperature and 37℃ non-ionic contrast agent acting on ERCP-related cholangeitis after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in the treatment of hilar cholangiocarcinoma.
Exosomes are part of extracellular vesicles(EVs), and can be secreted into the environment by many types of cells. It has been demonstrated that the content and function of exosomes depends on the originating cell and the conditions under which they are produced.Exosomes contain proteins,RNAs and lipid,which may transfer biological information and activities from donor cells to receptor cells. Non-coding RNAs are involved in many biological activities including tumor growth and metastasis. In this prospective translational study, preclinical and clinical phases have been designed. On the first step, the main goal is to characterize the ncRNAs of cholangiocarcinoma derived exosomes. This exosome biomarker may provide a useful diagnostic tool. As a second step, the study will evaluate the prognostic and predictive value of cholangiocarcinoma exosomes levels in plasma in a prospectively recruited cohort of cholangiocarcinoma patients before and after surgical resection.
This phase Ib trial studies the side effects and best dose of Hsp90 inhibitor XL888 when given together with pembrolizumab in treating patients with advanced gastrointestinal cancer that has spread to other places in the body. XL888 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may block tumor growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. Giving XL888 with pembrolizumab may work better in treating patients with gastrointestinal cancer.
