Positive Activities for Asian American Cancer Patients and Caregivers
The purpose of this registry is to collect retrospective and prospective standardized data of patients treated with particle therapy, either with protons or carbon ions, at the National Center for Oncological Hadrontherapy (CNAO) based in Pavia. By keeping track of the patients treated, it will allow the investigators to periodically analyze and evaluate data collected of daily clinical activity. This will help gathering more information on the results of particle therapy and will provide the basis for in depth evaluation of patients' outcome with respect to the delivered 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.
Elderly patients * with multiple comorbidities are underrepresented in most radio-oncology studies. In times of individualized therapy and when weighing up oncological over- or under-therapy, this observational study is a step towards the implementation of established geriatric instruments and concepts in radiation oncology. As part of the initial outpatient consultation on radiotherapy, the quality of life of patients older than 70 years before the start of therapy is assessed using the EORTC QLQ-C30 and ELD14 questionnaires. Furthermore, a geriatric screening is carried out using the G8 questionnaire. The geriatric screening carried out in routine clinical practice with little effort is used to filter out patients with no risk of increased vulnerability - these participants do not require any further examinations.
To acquire blood samples from subjects for various purposes, including: i) determining the sensitivity and specificity of select DNA methylation markers for the detection of various types of cancer, ii) identifying benign conditions that may induce false positive or false negative results, and iii) defining the effects of potential interfering substances, such as chemotherapy drugs.
This trial will examine the feasibility and preliminary effectiveness of providing unconditional cash transfers to food insecure female breast and gynecologic cancer patients. Approximately one-third of cancer survivors report food insecurity, characterized by limited access to adequate food for active, healthy living because of a lack of money and other resources. Unconditional cash transfers offer direct monetary assistance that can be used to meet immediate food or other financial needs and may positively impact health care resource utilization and health-related quality of life.
Allogeneic Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is an effective treatment for all array of blood or blood-producing organ disorders. Graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD) occurs as a result of an overactive immunological system against normal host tissues. It can happen in the liver, skin, mucosal surface of the eye, gastrointestinal tract, and genitalia. Ocular GVHD occurs in 30-70% of patients after HSCT. It mainly affects the ocular surface, including the conjunctiva and cornea. In severe cases, multiple clinical manifestations can lead to painful non-healing corneal ulcers, secondary infections, and visual loss. oGVHD can be debilitating and severely impact patients' quality of life. However, there are no widely accepted guidelines available for prevention and management. In collaboration with the Department of Haematology of Queen Mary Hospital, the investigators set out to establish a territory-wide cohort of patients receiving HSCT. Primarily, the investigators aim to establish the population-based epidemiology of oGVHD and understand the natural history and the long-term ophthalmic outcomes of oGVHD via this study.
A Phase 1 dose escalation study in patients with advanced solid tumors harboring KRAS or EGFR mutations to determine the maximum tolerated dose and recommended Phase II dose of HBI-2376 and characterize its pharmacokinetic profile.
This randomized clinical trial will assess whether a psychoeducational intervention will improve palliative care knowledge and attitudes among caregivers of individuals with cancer. The psychoeducational intervention entails viewing a video introducing palliative care and its purpose, structure, benefits, and efficacy.
