To determine the effectiveness of patient controlled methylphenidate as compared to placebo for the management of cancer related fatigue as determined by the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-F Fatigue score.
The purpose of this research is to compare the amount and quality of tissue obtained by EUS-FNB when the device is flushed with an anticoagulant or "blood thinner" vs. saline a salt water solution as well as the use of a microsieve in order for the doctor to look at the tissue to check the acceptability of the specimens before sending for analysis. You will be randomly assigned (like a flip of a coin) to have either the blood thinner or the salt water solution placed within the needle being used to sample your abdominal tumor and to have either a sieve used or not. You will be one of 42 participants enrolled in this data collection study which includes 1 sites in the United States.
YH004 is a humanized monoclonal antibody that specifically binds to 4-1BB, and acts as an agonist against 4-1BB. This first in human study of YH004 is designed to establish the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or the recommended Phase II dose (RP2D) of YH004, both as a single agent (monotherapy) and in combination with a fixed dose of anti-PD-1 antibody (Toripalimab) in the treatment of advanced solid tumors and relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.
This study investigates the immune response in the cancer population in Belgium being vaccinated with an approved vaccine types being authorized for use in Belgium. This question needs to be answered to make sure that this vulnerable population is properly protected against possible SARS-CoV-2 infection and that vaccine administration is safe.
This study is to assess the feasibility of using a Virtual Reality (VR) headset to provide nature-based Attention-Restorative Therapy (ART) as treatment for cognitive impairment in post-treatment cancer survivors. At ART's foundation is the belief that exposure to nature can improve attention by fully engaging a person in a safe and relaxing experience. This intervention uses a VR headset to expose the participant to nature while overcoming some potential barriers of nature-based interventions like access, physical ability, and bad weather. The goal of this study is to understand if people are willing to use the VR headsets to experience nature virtually, if they find it helpful with cancer-related cognitive impairments (CRCI) symptoms and if they are satisfied with using it. Participants will be asked to use self-management materials (weekly home practice logs, Oculus Go™ and online questionnaires) for 6 weeks. Investigators hope to use information from this small feasibility study to study the effectiveness of the intervention in a larger group of cancer survivors and ultimately to help cancer survivors struggling with cognitive impairments.
Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are increasingly common and have a poor prognosis: 5-year mortality can reach 40 to 50%, depending on the type of mycobacteria and the immune system of the host involved. Cancer patients are at higher risk of infectious morbidity and mortality, which may be due to disease-related immune dysfunction, immunosuppressive effects of chemotherapy, or long-term placement of a vascular catheter. However, data on the treatment of NTM species that cause infections and the disease characteristics of these pathogens in cancer patients are limited despite the growing cancer population worldwide. Recently, M. avium infections have been described in patients suffering from cancers (hematological or not), in particular in patients receiving checkpoint inhibitors. Although the proportion of M. avium pneumonia in retrospective series is low (0.8-2%), it has been shown that this population is younger, suffers less from sub-pulmonary pathology. (indicating immunosuppression in these patients) but are therefore treated less than non-cancerous subjects. This retrospective study in CHU Amiens is searching on the number of side effects of NTM treatment in two groups (cancerous and no cancerous) to assess the cause of the decrease of NTM treatment in cancerous patients.
The study team will be performing a study comparing the use of Heparin Flushes vs. Normal Saline Flushes in making sure central lines stay open. The participants will be placed in a group to receive the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) Standard of Care (control group) for maintaining central lines, or a group to receive Normal Saline Flushes only (experimental group) to keep their central line open. The participants electronic medical record will be reviewed by study team members for the inclusion/exclusion criteria, the participants central line will be assessed by an 11 Blue BMT nurse every 12 hours, and they may be asked questions regarding their medical history during their stay on 11 Blue BMT. If a participant is discharged or transferred off of the 11 Blue BMT unit, they will no longer be included in the study and their central line maintenance will return to the UTSW Standard of Care. Participants in this study may be at risk for central line occlusion (a blood clot) which could require intervention to regain the free flow of fluids and use of the central line. The study team predicts there will be no increase in the rate of line occlusion when using Normal Saline Flushes only to maintain the free flow of fluids through participants central line. The study team also hopes the results of this study will help to improve patient outcomes by decreasing risk of infection, heparin associated complications, and costs.
The purpose of the full trial is to determine the efficacy and safety of prophylactic dose rivaroxaban to prevent VTE among cancer patients with CVC.
This study forms part of Entia's clinical evidence for regulatory submission. This study evaluates Entia Liberty's validation of the device. Participants will be trained to take an Entia Liberty test in a simulated home environment and a trained healthcare professional will perform another test from the same participant (different finger) on a separate device. The results will be compared. Usability data will be observed and the participants will complete a questionnaire after the tests have been performed.
The investigators wish to set up a pharmaco-epidemiological cohort within the Hospital Territorial Groups of the Cévennes-Gard Camargue, East-Hérault and Haute-Garonne and West Tarn on a specific population, patients undergoing immunotherapy for cancer, as currently there is no data available under "real life" conditions following anti-COVID vaccination19. The hypothesis is that patients undergoing immunotherapy will not develop more vaccine-related adverse events than those observed in the efficacy and safety validation studies of the BNT162b2 mRNA Covid-19, mRNA-1273 SARS CoV-2, Oxford/AstraZeneca and Ad26COV2.S, JMJ Vaccine or J & J COVID-19 Vaccine.
