This is an open-label positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) study to investigate the diagnostic performance and evaluation efficacy of 68Ga-NOTA-PEG2-RM26 in prostate cancer patients. A single dose of 2 MBq/kg of 68Ga-NOTA-PEG2-RM26 limited to 100-200 MBq per examination will be given intravenously. Visual and semiquantitative method will be used to assess PET/CT images.
To look at how a digital art activity may help cancer patients improve their ability to express their distress, symptoms, and lived experience.
The eMOTION Study is a two-part ORBIT model phase 1 trial. The first part, called the Formative Study, will assess acceptability and feasibility of a novel physical activity intervention in adults at increased risk for cancer due to overweight or obesity.
Yttrium-90, attached to microspheres, usually referred to as 90Y-microspheres or Y-90 radioembolisation, can be used in some cases to treat patients with liver tumours or liver metastasis. The treatment aim is to infuse the 90Ymicrospheres into the patient's liver. The microspheres get trapped in the lesions of micro-blood vessels while the yttrium-90, a radioactive compound, delivers radiation doses locally at these sites and damages the diseased cells. Therapy is performed in such a way the 90Y-microspheres are localised in the tumour areas minimising damage to the healthy liver tissue. This treatment requires many steps involving professionals from different medical disciplines. Patients are scanned in the nuclear Medicine Department on a gamma camera the day after the treatment. This scan is referred as Y-90 bremsstrahlung-SPECT. This posttherapy scan provides a 3-dimensional (3D) image of the distribution of the therapeutic agent in the patient's abdomen so an assessment of how much of the therapeutic agent has gone to the sites of disease can be performed. In this research project, the investigators would like to evaluate an alternative post-therapy scan to the one routinely performed on the gamma camera. The alternative scan is done on a PET-CT scanner and is referred to as Y90-PET-CT. This type of scan has been reported to provide improved quality images, providing more accurate information on the distribution of the patients therapeutic dose. For this research project, the investigators will invite a small number of patients undergoing this therapy to be scanned twice after treatment: with the current post-therapy scan on a gamma camera; and with the newly proposed scan method, Y90-PET-CT. Depending on the outcomes of this project, assessed by an expert panel of radiologists and medical physicists, the investigators will determine whether we will introduce this new scanning method into clinical practice in the future.
In Nuclear Medicine, the examinations are long (20-60 minutes) and the patients must remain immobile, sometimes fasting. The anxiety of the latter can lead to poor quality examinations and sometimes, although already injected with radioactive drugs, the patients refuse the examination. In imaging, the use of hypnosis (prior to the MRI examination or with the patient during a scintigraphic examination) is frequent due to the conformation of MRI or scintigraphic machines, particularly for claustrophobic patients (2-2.5% of cases). Medical electroradiology manipulators (MERM) have been trained to practice Ericksonian hypnosis whose effectiveness in combating anxiety is no longer in question. Scientific studies by Faymonville et al, 2006 and Rainville et al, 2002, have shown the effectiveness of this method in managing anxiety using the simplified STAI-6 scale before and after hypnosis. The dosimetric study of the MERM position would then be greatly modified in favor of a decrease in exposure targeted by the June 4, 2018 decree on personnel safety. The impact of whether or not the MERM is physically present near the patient would also be studied. If minimal, this will resolve the current contradiction between the quality of patient care delivered and the radiation protection imposed in nuclear medicine. The investigators propose here a pilot study evaluating remote-delivered Ericksonian hypnosis versus conventionally-delivered Ericksonian hypnosis, which will allow for the sizing of a subsequent multicenter randomized non-inferiority controlled trial. Indeed, there is currently no data available on the non-inferiority margin of this technique.
In patients clinically treated with FDA-approved immunotherapy the investigators will assess the predictive value of pre- and on-treatment 1) immune-methylation profiling across cancer types, and 2) immune-methylation profiling and cytokine profiling within cancer types.
This study assesses the feasibility and acceptability of a brief electronic patient-reported outcome (ePRO) tool that allows patients to self-identify impending delays. The risk of treatment delays according to tumor type and race will be measured by both ePRO and electronic health record (EHR) tools. Data from this study and the association of social determinants of health could be useful to flag patients at risk of delay and due timely intervention for modifiable treatment barriers. The prediction of the risk of treatment delay will be helpful to design another study using electronic tracking systems to prevent cancer treatment delays. The long-term goal of this research is to alert care teams when patients may be at risk of treatment days and to help patients get treatment faster. It was planned to enroll a total of 240 subjects with newly diagnosed cancer. Sixty colorectal and 180 breast cancer patients will be included.

This is an open-label, multicenter, first-in-human dose-escalation and expansion Phase 1-2 study designed to determine the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and preliminary anti-tumor activity of OR502 administered as a monotherapy and in combination with cemiplimab in subjects with advanced solid tumors.
This protocol seeks to analyze patient outcomes of the standard of care, monitored group exercise regimen of high-load resistance training and functional exercises with compound movements under close supervision on individuals who have been treated for cancer.
