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.
This study will evaluate two groups of patients who have intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Each group will receive induction treatment with Cisplatin and Gemcitabine per SOC for 4 treatment cycles. Following induction treatment patients will be randomize (1:1), to 2 arms of treatment. One group (50%) will be receive high dose chemotherapy delivered specifically to the liver, while the other group (50%) will continue treatment with Cisplatin and Gemcitabine. Patient in each group will get repeating cycles of treatment until the cancer advances. All patients will be followed until death. This study will compare the overall survival (OS) in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.
There is no proven adjuvant treatment after curative surgical resection in patients with cholangiocarcinoma, although previous meta-analysis suggested potential survival benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy in patients with lymph node-positive resected cholangiocarcinoma. Despite of lack of level 1 evidence and no data which regimen is optimal, adjuvant chemotherapy is widely used in daily practice setting. Based on this background, the investigators designed the randomized phase 2 trial comparing capecitabine and gemcitabine plus cisplatin in patients with resected lymph node-positive extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a malignant neoplasm originating from the epithelial cells lining the intra- or extrahepatic biliary ducts. It is the second-most common liver cancer, after hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). About 6,000 people in the United States develop bile duct cancer each year. One-year survival is less than 25% and no effective and safe systemic treatments are currently available. Last year the completion of open-label phase 2 trial (NCT02256514) of hepcortespenlisimut-L (V5) has been reported, which has shown that two-third of Mongolian patients with advanced HCC had a favorable clinical response, including complete remissions and with overall survival over 90% after 1 year. So far a few patients with CCA were treated with V5, but it appeared that their response rate was somewhat inferior to patients with HCC since two (both with hemochromatosis) out six patients died within 6 months. In one patient who had improved clinically, the improvement was correlated with decrease in CA19-9 tumor marker, but no marker profile information is available in regard to other CCA patients. As V5 tablets are made from pooled blood of patients with HCC, in theory, they will be not very useful to patients with CCA. The goal of this project is to manufacture an immunotherapeutic formulation made from pooled heat- and chemically-inactivated blood from donors with CCA and initiate pilot open-label trial in 20 cholangiocarcinoma patients. This clinical trial will be conducted in collaboration with the National Cancer Center.
This observational study of a national cohort of 600 Swedish PSC patients include yearly MR/MRCP, biobanking of serum, plasma and blood, followup clinical data (interventions, symptoms, labs, colonoscopy). The aim is to collect a well characterized cohort of PSC patients and provide future possibilities to evaluate biomarkers for prognosis and early cancer detection.
