This study aims at verifying the overexpression of STARD3 in both early and advanced CRC patients derived tissues, to identify the pathways underpinning tumorigenesis and cancer progression in which STARD3 is involved. Moreover its role as a dynamic biomarker of treatment response and its part in treatment sensitivity will be explored.
The goal of this observational study is to learn about the the pattern of metastasis of the No.253 lymph node in colorectal cancer. The main questions it aims to answer are: 1. What are the risk factors for metastasis to the No.253 lymph node? 2.What is the prognosis for patients with metastasis to the No.253 lymph node? Patients with descending colon cancer, sigmoid colon cancer, and rectal cancer who undergo curative surgery with dissection of the No.253 lymph node are included in this study
The researchers are doing this study to see if one session of high-dose contrast-enhanced MRI-guided SBRT (stereotactic body radiation therapy) is effective for colorectal cancer that has spread to the liver. The researchers will evaluate how well the study treatment can prevent the liver metastasis from growing and spreading. In addition, they will see whether it causes any side effects and whether there are any characteristics of the research MRI images that can predict response to treatment.
The goal of this pilot clinical trial is to determine feasibility and explore whether financial incentives paid to primary care patients for completing colorectal cancer screening increase completion of colorectal cancer screening. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Do patient financial incentives for completing colorectal cancer screening increase screening completion? - Does a patient financial incentive for colorectal cancer screening offered alongside patient financial incentives for COVID-19 and flu shots increase completion of those shots? Participants who are due for colorectal cancer screening will receive telephone outreach from primary care staff who will offer a stool-based colorectal cancer screening. Participants will be randomly assigned to either Group 1 or Group 2. Group 1 participants will be offered financial incentives for completing COVID-19 and flu shots within 2 months of enrollment. Group 2 participants will be offered financial incentives for completing a COVID-19 shot, a flu shot, and colorectal cancer screening within 2 months of enrollment. Researchers will compare to see if completion of a COVID-19 shot, a flu shot, and colorectal cancer screening is different between the two groups.
This study is a randomized controlled phase II trial to evaluate the efficacy of the combination of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and immunotherapy with postoperative chemotherapy in colorectal cancer liver metastasis (CRLM) patients with high risk of locally recurrence. Researchers will compare the combination therapy with the postoperative chemotherapy alone to see if postoperative chemotherapy plus SBRT and immunotherapy can further reduce the risk of recurrence and metastasis after surgery.
This study is a 6-month randomized controlled trail of diet modification designed to reduce chronic inflammation and reverse metabolic dysfunction among obese individuals with one or more polyps found at a colonoscopy screening. We also will recruit an at least overweight partner, who lives in the same household. To be eligible, participants will be apparently disease-free, obese AAs or EAs who have self-identified a partner who is at least 9 years, with whom they live and who also is at least overweight. Each index participant will: 1) Be AA or EA by self-report; 2) Be ≤55 years old; 3) Have undergone a colonoscopy screening and found to have ≥1 polyp(s); 4) Be free of co-morbid conditions or other factors that would limit participation in this trial; 5) Have a BMI ≥30kg/m2; 6) Be willing to commit to investing the time and effort required to participate in this trial (i.e., willing to complete all assessments and provide biological samples as specified in the consent); and 7) Have no recent antibiotic use. Their partner needs to: 1) Be at least 9 years old; 2) Live in the same household and consumes meals together; 3) Be at least overweight; 4) Agree to all study procedures, including provision of biological samples, body measurements, and self-reported dietary and other assessments; and 5) Have no recent antibiotic use.
As a traditional martial art in China, Tai Chi Chuan has excellent health benefits along with its combat function.Studies have shown that Tai Chi as an exercise prescription can significantly reduce the incidence of cancer, but the complexity of Tai Chi Chuan routines, poor disease targeting, and the lack of traditional internal mental and physical training method limit the healing of tumours and other diseases. For this reason, we have established the Medical Tai Chi Exercise Healing System（MTCEH）, which integrates Tai Chi exercise, traditional Chinese internal mental and physical training method, rehabilitation medicine and sports medicine methods, on the basis of evidence-based medicine and with the aim of targeting different tumour treatments. With the characteristics of easily learning, internal and external training, and individualised treatment of tumours, this series of routines effectively combines traditional oriental Tai Chi martial arts with tumour treatment, which opens up a beautiful and mysterious oriental healing journey for integrative medicine.
This is a phase 2 pragmatic study that evaluates the clinical benefit of continuing systemic therapy with the addition of locally ablative therapies for oligo-progressive solid tumors as the primary objective. The primary outcome measure is the time to treatment failure (defined as time to change in systemic failure or permanent discontinuation of therapy) following locally ablative therapy.
The study is a real-world observational clinical study. Patients diagnosed as colorectal cancer through histopathology were screened and enrolled. Before anti-tumor treatment, colonoscopy biopsy tissue specimens, surgical specimens, and malignant pleural effusion or ascites specimens, etc. are collected. The investigators will perform a drug sensitivity testing based on a novel drug susceptibility testing method to test the commonly used anti-tumor treatment regimens. Patients were given conventional anti-tumor treatment according to the medical judgment of the doctors. Finally, the investigator will evaluate the consistency of clinical efficacy in colorectal cancer treatment and drug susceptibility outcomes.
dMMR/MSI-H colorectal cancer patients are the dominant population of immunotherapy/neoadjuvant immunotherapy, but imaging evaluation of immunotherapy efficacy is insufficient. There are some cases, although no disease remission was found on imaging,pathological complete response (pCR) was confirmed after surgery. Meanwhile,previous studies have shown that dynamic changes in ctDNA can help assess immunotherapy efficacy. Therefore, we propose to conduct a multicenter, prospective, observational clinical study to explore the efficacy prediction and monitoring value of ctDNA in immunotherapy for advanced or locally advanced dMMR/MSI-H colorectal cancer.
