RAD 1802: Pilot Trial of LINAC Based Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for Early Stage Breast Cancer Patients Eligible for Post-Operative Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI)

Start date: August 20, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study offers single fraction radiation treatment through partial breast irradiation in patients with early stage breast cancer after having a lumpectomy.

The Value of Geriatric Assessments in Older Patients With Breast Cancer

Start date: April 1, 2018
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Elderly cancer patients are a special group, often complicated by a variety of chronic diseases, which bring serious obstacles to surgery and adjuvant treatment. It is for these reasons that most patients with high-level evidence-based randomized controlled clinical trials will be part of these patients. Exclusions ultimately lead to a lack of standards for the treatment of elderly breast cancer patients, especially the chemotherapy.

Investigators' purpose was to determine whether geriatric assessments are associated with completion of a chemotherapy course, grade III/IV toxicity or survival in older adults with breast cancer in older patients.

Investigators want to prospectively enroll breast cancer patients with age ≥70 years. By recording the pre-treatment baseline laboratory tests and geriatric assessments, through questionnaires, including Karnofsky performance status(KPS), Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group(ECOG), Mini Nutritional Assessment(MNA), Activity of daily living(ADL), Instrumental activities of daily living(IADL), Mini-Mental State Examination(MMSE), Geriatric Depression Scale(GDS), G-8, Vulnerable Elders Survey-13(VES-13) and FRAIL, Tilburg. Investigators want to learn the relationship between the geriatric assessments and chemotherapy toxicity, chemotherapy completion and overall survival. Establish a model for predicting chemotherapy side effects in old breast cancer patients.

Clinical Study on Anti-tumor Effect Induced by Activated Primary Natural Killer(NK)Cells

Start date: October 26, 2018
Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This study will analyze and evaluate the following items:

1. The safety of natural killer(NK) cells for treatment of subjects with solid tumors. Forty patients will be enrolled for each of the five cancers (in total 200 patients will be enrolled).

2. The effectiveness of natural killer(NK)cell therapy alone or with chemotherapy or targeted drugs.

Subjects from 18 to 75 years of age who are diagnosed with a solid tumor including pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer and colon cancer, and for whom standard treatments are not effective, may be eligible for this study. Participants undergo the following procedures:

Peripheral blood will be collected from a vein of arm. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells(PBMC) will be isolated and purified for NK manufacturing. After 14~21 days cultivation, activated NK will be harvested and formulated for clinical administration.

Subjects will receive NK cell treatment by intravenous infusion. The frequency is once every 3 or 4 weeks for the first 3 months. Participants who respond well after 3 months may be eligible to continue NK cell therapy; and those not may receive NK therapy combined with chemotherapy and/or targeted drugs, or chemotherapy/targeted drugs alone.

Evaluations during therapy including:

1. Clinical assessment, and history of medications;

2. Blood draws for routine and research tests, including but not limited to: lymphocyte population and circulating tumor cell analysis in peripheral blood;

3. CT scan, bone scan and positron emission tomography(PET )scan, if indicated, for disease evaluation;

4. Pharmacokinetics study after NK infusion. For this test, the number of NK cells in the blood is measured over time at indicated time-points.
