NCT ID: NCT01766297 Recruiting - Clinical trial for Breast Cancer

Phase II Protocol of Proton Therapy for Partial Breast Irradiation in Early Stage Breast Cancer

Start date: February 2013
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this research study is to compare the effects (good and bad) on women and their cancer using proton radiation therapy.

This study is being done to see if proton radiation therapy will prove to be beneficial for women with early stage breast cancer. A clinical study is necessary to compare the results (good or bad) of proton radiation therapy.

NCT ID: NCT01742403 Recruiting - Clinical trial for Prostate Cancer

Continuous Monitoring of Prostate Position During Radiotherapy

KIM Gating
Start date: January 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study is investigating measurement of prostate motion during radiotherapy using the implanted gold markers. If motion is greater than 3mm then the beam will be stopped and position corrected (gating).

NCT ID: NCT01737242 Recruiting - Clinical trial for Prostate Cancer

UK Genetic Prostate Cancer Study: Epidemiology and Molecular Genetics Studies

Start date: January 1993
Study type: Observational

The UKGPCS was set up to find genetic alterations which occur in patients who have prostate cancer. A man's risk of developing prostate cancer increases if he has a first-degree relative (father or brother) who was diagnosed with prostate cancer at a young age. This is why we are looking for men who are affected at a young age or who have a family history of prostate cancer, since it is more probable that these prostate cancers are due to an inherited genetic cause rather than an environmental cause. We also ask all men who come to the Royal Marsden Hospital to be treated for prostate cancer if they would like to take part in the study so that we can also look to see if we find genetic alterations in older men, and those who do not have a family history of prostate cancer.
