Lung cancer is one of the most common cancer diseases, globally and locally. Several health benefits of increased physical activity (PA) have been reported for people with cancer. PA plays a critical role across the cancer trajectory, from prevention through to post-diagnosis and has been proposed as an alternative for improving physical and psychosocial health outcomes, reducing cancer recurrence, and cancer-specific and all-cause mortality. Although there are a variety of exercise intervention programs for cancer patients, those programs were quite intensive, requiring individuals to commit extra time and effort. Feeling of overwhelmed appointments, lack of time, other barriers, including high cost and limited access to facilities are the most frequently reported barriers that prevent people from starting and maintaining exercise. Hence, the investigators propose to use a brief messaging lifestyle modification intervention program to incorporating simple and easy-to-do patient-centred home-based lifestyle-integrated exercise into daily activities of patients with lung cancer. The aims are to explore the feasibility of using instant messaging to enhance physical activity and improve their fatigue, emotion and quality of life, and obtain feedback from patients for intervention and study design improvement.
This is a single-site cluster-randomized trial to assess efficacy and implementation outcomes of deprescribing interventions in 72 older adults with polypharmacy (PP) and curable cancers initiating chemotherapy. Oncologists (as the cluster) will enroll 6 patients each and will be randomized to either a pharmacist-led deprescribing intervention or patient education intervention. Initial focus groups with oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, primary care physicians, and patients will provide data for initial adaptations to the pharmacist-led intervention arm, and 8 patients will be enrolled as a pre-trial cohort to further refine and adapt the pharmacist-led intervention.
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.
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.
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 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.
This study is a randomized clinical trial designed to test a novel financial navigation intervention. The study assesses the impact of the financial navigation intervention on financial hardship and health-related quality of life, cancer-related material and psychological financial hardship, patient-centered communication, and time to initiation of treatment.
The goal of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of a COVID vaccine booster in patients with cancer who have not developed an antibody after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorized COVID vaccination series
To assess the contribution of the use of virtual reality glasses on the pain perceived by patients during the installation of an ICP in the operating room under local anesthesia in the patient newly diagnosed with cancer
