The Galleri test is a new test that looks for potential signs of cancer in a blood sample. The test can find many different types of cancer but cannot find all cancers. The trial aims to see if using the Galleri test alongside standard cancer testing in the NHS can help to find cancers at an early stage when they are easier to treat. The trial has enrolled approximately 140,000 participants who will be actively followed for approximately three years from the date of enrollment.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common complication associated with cancer but the risk of AF according to the cancer localization and status as well as the risk of thromboembolisms, bleedings and mortality are poorly known. The objective of this study is to use a very large French nationwide cohort to adress thèses questions.
ASCEND-PANCREATIC is a prospective, multi-omics, observational study aimed at early detecting pancreatic cancer by combined assays for biomarkers of cfDNA methylation, circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) mutation, serum protein markers and blood miRNA markers, in which of 7,062 participants will be enrolled. The development and validation of the model will be conducted in participants with early stage cancers or benign diseases, along with healthy individuals. The performance of the pancreatic cancer detection test will be evaluated in participants with high risk of pancreatic cancer.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention utilizing the Five Love Languages on quality of life (pain, depression, and anxiety) of cancer patients.
The proposed pilot randomized controlled trial will test the FACT (Families Addressing Cancer Together) intervention designed to improve parents' confidence and ability to talk about their cancer with their minor children. We will enroll 40 patients with cancer who have a minor child to participate in this single site, 6-week study. The primary hypothesis being tested is that an intervention that assists parents with their communication needs with their children can be feasible and acceptable when compared with a wait-list control condition.
There is increasing evidence of interventions shown to be effective to promote physical activity in adolescents with cancer. Nevertheless, adolescents with cancer become physically inactive after the end of the interventions. These interventions emphasized heavily on interventionists' role to assess adolescents' physical fitness and prescribe exercises. After the intervention, the adolescents were unable to follow the previous exercise prescriptions due to their changing medical conditions. To promote physical activity sustainably, it is vital to develop a patient-based assessment tool to allow adolescents with cancer to self-assess their own appropriate levels of physical activity that they could perform. However, a review of literature indicates a lack of such a tool.
The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and potential effectiveness of NET in reducing symptoms of traumatic stress (e.g., hyperarousal, avoidance, and intrusion) in cancer patients who are not in active treatment. Further aims include: - Can NET be effective in reducing symptoms of existential anxiety, anxiety, and depression in cancer patients who are not in active treatment? - Can NET improve the Quality of Life (QoL) of cancer patients who are not in active treatment? And are improvements in QoL associated to reduction of traumatic stress? - Can NET lead to post-traumatic growth? - Does the NET protocol need to be adapted to meet cancer patients' needs?
This is a 2-arm randomized controlled study comparing how effective two therapeutic digital software devices are at improving anxiety and other indicators of psychological and physical health in patients with cancer. The study will be completely virtual, meaning participants can take part completely from home without visiting a clinic or study site. The digital software devices, called called attune™ and cerena™, are designed to be used for approximately 12 weeks alongside oncology usual care regimens (medical, psychosocial). The study will enroll at least 352 stage I-III cancer patients with elevated anxiety symptoms who are currently receiving systemic treatment (radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy), have received systemic treatment within the last 6 months, or who have an established treatment plan that includes systemic treatment.
The aim of this study is to verify the efficacy of the Spanish adaptation of Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy for Spanish participants with cancer in a randomized control trial.
Poor health, and its treatment, has impact beyond the healthcare system into wider society. A person's productivity, taxable earnings, benefit payments and community contribution may all be adversely affected by poor health. Family members living with or caring for a patient may suffer equally, or sometimes more than the patient themselves, but this familial burden has gone largely unrecognised by healthcare systems. The Family-Reported Outcome Measure (FROM-16) is the first generic questionnaire designed to measure the impact of any chronic disease on the quality of life of family members or partners of patients with a health condition. Advance Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) are a novel & ground-breaking therapeutic approach for curative treatment of disease and/or injury where conventional treatments have been ineffective. Such disease/injury generally has an extremely high impact on the patient's quality of life, and also the quality of life of the patient's family, in particular those family members who take on the role of 'informal carer'. ATMPs usually have very high costs and this can limit their usage, especially in the context of low prevalence disease and publicly-funded healthcare systems, where healthcare providers may be reluctant to take on the cost burden of the ATMP therapy. As a result, there is a particular focus on the 'value' of ATMPs. An important component of value is 'Societal Value', where a treatment leads to societal contributions, and considering Societal Value may justify the high cost of ATMPs despite the relatively few patients cured. In this study, we will validate the FROM-16 for use as one measure of the Societal Value of very high cost, potentially curative treatments such as ATMPs.
