Different postoperative home nutrition modes adopted in this study includes oral natural diet, oral nutrition suppl...

Patterns of Prescribing and Monitoring of Palbociclib

The purpose of this study is to determine if patients with ER+, HER2-, advanced breast cancer are receiving dosing adjustments and monitoring based on manufacturer recommendations at a tertiary academic medical center.

MCS110 Combined With Neoadjuvant Doxorubicin, Cyclophosphamide, and Weekly Paclitaxel in Patients With Hormone-Receptor Positive and HER2- Breast Cancer

In patients with locally advanced hormone receptor positive (HR+)/HER2- breast cancer, neoadjuvant chemotherapy produces a pathologic complete response rate (pCR) of only 9-15%, and late recurrences often occur despite neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Therefore, there is an unmet clinical need to improve the outcomes of these patients. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) infiltrati...

Telephone-Based Mindfulness CBT for Patients in Community Settings With Advanced Cancer

This study examines the feasibility and acceptability of an open trial of mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy intervention delivered via telephone to men and women age 21 and older with a diagnosis of advanced cancer. Potential participants (N=35) will be recruited via letter from their oncologist at community-based clinics (N=18) and those served at the Duke Can...

Oral Cell DNA Adducts in Smokers

DNA adducts in the oral mucosa cells of 100 smokers from 3 ethnic groups - Native Hawaiians, Whites, and Japanese Americans with differing risks for lung cancer upon cigarette smoking will be quantified. DNA adducts of tobacco smoke carcinogens will be quantified using both targeted and untargeted approaches.

An Exploratory Clinical Study of Apatinib for the 2nd Treatment of Esophageal Cancer or Esophageal and Gastric

The purpose of this Phase II, Open-label, single arm, exploratory study is to evaluate the efficacy and the safety of Apatinib(500mg/d)for the second - line treatment of esophageal cancer or esophageal and gastric

Stereotactic Radiotherapy of the Resection Cavity of Brain Metastases vs. Post-operative Whole-brain Radiotherapy

In advanced cancer disease brain metastases are common, difficult to treat, and are associated with a poor prognosis. As new local and systemic therapies are eventually resulting in improved survival and quality of life for patients with brain metastases, negative neurocognitive effects of radiation therapy are becoming increasingly important as well as good loco-regional d...

Clinical and Molecular Staging of Lung Cancer Stages I and IIp

The classification of lung cancer (LC) according to the degree of anatomical extension (TNM) allows the estimation of the prognosis of the patient, although its accuracy is limited. In fact, one third of surgically-treated patients with initial disease have recurrences during follow-up, despite the negativity of node dissection at surgery. The incorporation of genetic, epig...

Compassion Cultivation Training for Nurses

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of implementing a Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) program for oncology nurses at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. The goal of CCT is to provide a structured and systematic way of cultivating daily-life skills needed to strengthen qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness for oneself and others. CCT ty...

Second-line CM082 Combined With Paclitaxel For Patients With Advanced Gastric Cancer

This is an open-label, Phase 1b study which will be conducted in two parts: part A is the dose escalation study while part B is dose expansion study. The purpose of the dose escalation part is to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of CM082 combined with paclitaxel in patients with advanced gastric cancer who did not respond to ...
