This is a multicenter, interventional, non-pharmacological study on a app for oral anticancer therapy management. A total of 124 patients will be considered. Patients will be randomized 1:1 to one of the following interventions: A. electronic diary B. paper diary The primary aim of the study is to assess the effectiveness of the electronic diary in improving adherence to oral therapy treatment compared to the paper diary, in patients with solid and haematological tumors.
The purpose of this study is to see whether programs that include both a patient and their spouse or a patient and family caregiver (known as a dyad) are helpful for families in which one member of the dyad has cancer and mild memory difficulties and/or concerns. Participant and their spouse or participant and their family caregiver will have six, 60-minute video-conference sessions which will be scheduled at their convenience. The investigator will loan participants a tablet computer (iPad) to use for videoconferencing and train the participant in its use. Participant and their spouse or participant and their family caregiver will complete three assessments - one before starting the sessions, one after the sixth session, and one after 1 month. Each assessment will include surveys, which the participant will complete separately from their spouse or family caregiver. For most people, it will take upwards of 2 - 4 months to complete this study.
This project assesses the feasibility and usability of the geriatric assessment platform (electronic Geriatric Assessment Platform or eGAP in 50 older patients with cancer, their caregivers, and their oncology team. Using an iterative process, we will refine the eGAP based on input from stakeholders.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a 30-week aerobic exercise therapy program in cancer patients recovering from COVID-19. The study will look at whether the aerobic exercise therapy causes few or mild side effects in participants. Aerobic exercise is physical activity that uses the large muscle groups (muscles in your legs, buttocks, back, and chest) and can be performed for several minutes at a time. The aerobic exercise therapy being used in this study will be a walking program that will be adjusted so it matches participant fitness levels (how much exercise you can handle).
Background Wales, like other UK countries, has relatively poor cancer outcomes. Late diagnosis and a slow referral process are major contributors. General practitioners (GPs) and other care providers working in primary care are often faced with patients presenting with a multitude of non-specific symptoms that could be cancer. Safety netting can be used to manage diagnostic uncertainty by ensuring patients with vague symptoms are appropriately monitored. The ThinkCancer! Workshop is an educational behaviour change intervention aimed at the whole general medical practice team, designed to improve primary care approaches to ensure timely diagnosis of cancer. The workshop will consist of teaching and awareness sessions, appointment of a Safety Netting Champion and the development of a bespoke Safety Netting Plan. This study aims to assess the feasibility of the ThinkCancer! Intervention for a future definitive randomised controlled trial, in terms of recruitment, randomisation, retention, acceptability, adherence and barriers to the intervention. Methods The ThinkCancer! study is a randomised, multisite feasibility trial, with an embedded process evaluation and economic evaluation. Twenty-three to 30 general medical practices will be recruited across Wales, randomised in a ratio of 2:1 of intervention versus control who will follow usual care. The workshop will be delivered by a GP educator, and will be adapted iteratively throughout the trial period. Baseline practice characteristics will be collected via questionnaire. We will also collect Primary Care Interval (PCI), Two Week Wait (2WW) referral rate, conversion rate and detection rate at baseline and six months post-randomisation. Participant feedback, researcher reflective notes and economic costings will be collected following each workshop. A process evaluation will assess implementation using an adapted Normalisation Measure Development (NoMAD) questionnaire and qualitative interviews. An economic feasibility analysis will inform a future economic evaluation. Discussion This study will allow us to test and further develop a novel evidenced-based complex intervention aimed at general practice teams to expedite the diagnosis of cancer in primary care. The results from this feasibility study will inform the future design of a full-scale definitive phase III trial.
PRESCIENT is a multi-center, prospective observational study aimed to detect cancers early by combined assays for serum protein markers and cell-free DNA (cfDNA) methylation markers. Blood RNA markers will also be evaluated. The study will enroll approximately 11879 participants, including participants with malignancies or benign diseases, and healthy participants.
According to a previous study, a cell-free DNA (cfDNA) methylation-based model showed high sensitivity and specificity (80.6% and 98.3%) in blood-based multi-cancer detection. In this way, a multi-center, prospective, single-blind study (THUNDER study) is designed to further validate the performance of the cfDNA methylation-based model for early cancer detection. Blood RNA markers will also be evaluated. The study will enroll approximately 2508 participants, including participants with malignancies and healthy participants.
PREDICT is a prospective, multicenter study for the early detection of pan-cancer through cell-free DNA (cfDNA) methylation-based model, in which approximately 14,000 participants will be enrolled. The development and validation of the model will be conducted in participants with cancers or benign diseases, along with non-tumor (healthy) individuals through a two-stage approach. The sensitivity and specificity of the model in cancer early detection will be evaluated, and the accuracy of the identification for tissue of origin will be obtained.
This pilot clinical trial aims to assess the real world quality of life and survival of patients treated with targeted therapy that has preliminary evidence of efficacy in subjects with advanced rare cancers or cancer harbouring rare molecular aberrations. The treatment has been granted conditional or full approved by Health Canada (HC) as effective and safe. Due to the rarity of the cancer or molecular aberration the uncertainty level of the health technology assessment (HTA) by the pan Canadian Oncology Review (pCODR) was too high for consideration of funding or it was not submitted for consideration. Consequently, the goal of this study is to generate real world evidence to support HTA decision making throughout the life cycle of the product.
The aim of study is to analyse the feasibility of the use of nutritionnal complements after exercices before surgery for cancer. Body composition, muscle function and muscle mass will be analyse too.
