NCT ID: NCT06143644 Active, not recruiting - Colorectal Cancer Clinical Trials

Predictive Value of Postoperative Circulating Tumor DNA Monitoring for Colorectal Cancer Recurrence

Start date: January 15, 2022
Study type: Observational

This observational study aims to assess the predictive value of postoperative circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) monitoring in evaluating the risk of recurrence in stage I-IV colorectal cancer patients. The study involves the collection of blood samples from patients who have undergone surgery for colorectal cancer. Sensitivity-enhanced molecular biology techniques are utilized to detect ctDNA in these samples. The correlation between ctDNA detection and the risk of recurrence is evaluated by analyzing patient follow-up data and clinical information. The findings of this study may contribute to the development of improved postoperative management strategies, such as identifying high-risk individuals and implementing additional treatment measures to reduce the risk of recurrence.

Appendectomy and Colorectal Cancer

Start date: June 1, 2022
Study type: Observational

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancer worldwide. Initiation and progression of CRC involve complex interactions among genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors. Given that hereditary and familial CRC only accounts for 2% to 5% of cases, environmental factors are the key triggers of CRC. Emerging evidence has indicated that gut microbes are an important environmental factor promoting CRC development. Gut dysbiosis has been shown to promote colorectal carcinogenesis in mice. Several individual bacterial species, such as the enterotoxigenic Bacteroides fragilis (ETBF), Fusobacterium nucleatum and Peptostreptococcus anaerobius, could exert carcinogenic effects by inducing direct DNA damage, oxidative damage and activating oncogenic signaling pathways. Recent studies have shown that the appendix plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis and biodiversity of gut microbiome by providing an ideal ecological niche for commensal bacteria and production of immunoglobulin A. Considering the key role of microorganisms in gastrointestinal pathophysiology, absence of appendix may result in disruption of microbiome homeostasis, which could potentially influence the risk of developing CRC. In terms of epidemiological evidence, the association of appendectomy with the risk of CRC development has been controversial, and to date no consensus has been attained. Although gut microorganisms could be a crucial pivot between appendectomy and risk of subsequent CRC development, the direct contribution of appendectomy and the underlying mechanisms are still largely unexplored. In this study, we aim to study 1. the association between appendectomy and colorectal cancer, and 2. the role of appendectomy in CRC risk through causing gut microbial dysbiosis.

NCT ID: NCT06026618 Active, not recruiting - Colorectal Cancer Clinical Trials

Perioperative Management of Preoperative Anemia in Colorectal Cancer

Start date: January 1, 2012
Study type: Observational

Both preoperative anemia (PA) and perioperative blood transfusion can contribute on poorer outcomes after colon cancer surgery. Anemia is known to be associated with a slower recovery after surgery thus often worsening short-term results, and allogenic red blood cells transfusion (ARBT) are known to promote systemic inflammatory response and affect overall and cancer-specific survival. Patient Blood Management (PBM) systems are an evidence-based multimodal approach focused on safe and rational use of blood products, mainly through a proper PA assessment, a minimization of procedural blood loos and strict transfusion policies. Given the high prevalence of PA in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC), and its association with adverse events, it is expected that PBM implementation in said scenario carries a decrease in complications and an improved survival rate. Available literature to date supports preoperative anaemia screening and restrictive transfusion policies, nevertheless barriers exist that limit the expected implementation of PBM systems in colorectal surgery. The present study aims to evaluate feasibility of a PBM pathway implementation in a high-volume CRC Surgery Unit based on completion of anemia screening and treatment before surgery and changes of allogenic products use along the years. The objective is to estimate the impact of a proper preoperative optimization with iron intravenous infusion (IVI) on PA measured from changes Hemoglobin (Hb) levels in comparison to those of non-anemic patients.

NCT ID: NCT05600309 Active, not recruiting - Colorectal Cancer Clinical Trials

A Study of Coformulated Favezelimab/Pembrolizumab (MK-4280A) Versus Standard of Care in Subjects With Previously Treated Metastatic PD-L1 Positive Colorectal Cancer (MK-4280A-007)-China Extension Study

Start date: June 14, 2022
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this China extension study is to assess the safety and efficacy of coformulated favezelimab/pembrolizumab (MK-4280A) in adult Chinese participants with metastatic colorectal cancer. The study will also compare MK-4280A with the standard of care treatment of regorafenib and TAS-102 (trifluridine and tipiracil). The primary study hypothesis is that coformulated favezelimab/pembrolizumab (MK-4280A) is superior to standard of care with respect to overall survival.
