Natural killer cells (NK cells) are cytotoxic lymphocytes that play an important role in the innate immune system. In particular, it plays a very important defense function against host cells or cancer cells infected with a specific virus. Recent studies have shown that the activity of NK cells is decreased in patients with various carcinomas compared with normal controls, ...

This is a Phase III, randomized, two arms, double-blind (patient and assessor blinded), parallel active non inferiority controlled clinical trial with a 2:1 allocation. This trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of bevacizumab (produced by AryoGen Pharmed) plus FOLFIRI-3 compared with bevacizumab (Avastin®) plus FOLFIRI-3 in patients with metastatic color...
This study evaluates why people with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity develop rapid onset symptoms within hours of gluten exposure. Half of subjects will be given gluten and half will not.
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the disease control rate of subjects with metastatic appendiceal cancer for whom initial fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapy has failed. Based on previous studies, the anticancer activityof nintedanib in lung and ovarian cancer trials, along with the similarities between appendiceal and colorectal cancer and potentially ovarian cance...
This clinical trial studies how well educational intervention works in improving knowledge and screening rates of colorectal cancer. An educational intervention, such as viewing an inflatable colon, PowerPoint presentation, or flip books/flipcharts, may help improve knowledge about colorectal cancer and how often people get checked for colorectal cancers.
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
To assess the effectiveness of close and intense monitoring on nutritional status of gastrointestinal cancer patients during chemoradiotherapy (CRT), 500 CRT patients diagnosed with gastrointestinal system are going to be recruited into this prospective study. Patient-generated subjective global assessment (PG-SGA) scale and nutrition risk screening (NRS-2002) are used for ...
- Registry - Multicenter, prospective observational study - Observe adverse events and efficacy in recruited patients for 3 years under real world settings.
Barrett's oesophagus is a transformation of the esophageal mucous membrane there intestinal metaplasia under the effect of gastro- esophageal reflux disease (GERD). This metaplasia can evolve in low grade dysplasia LGD) , high grade dysplasia (HGD) then invasive adenocarcinoma. The treatment of the HGD of the Barrett is the endoscopic treatment. It is about a superf...
This study evaluates the effectiveness of persuasive direct mail materials coupled with an incentive for increasing breast and colorectal cancer screening among people enrolled in Medicaid. Half of age- and gender-appropriate enrollees received this intervention; the other half received the same intervention 15 months later
The clinical trial studies how well 11C-glutamine and 18F-FSPG positron emission tomography (PET) imaging works in detecting tumors in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer compared to standard imaging methods such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scanning.
A randomized control trial on patients undergoing laparoscopic colorectal resection in an Enhanced Recovery Program (ERP). The intervention is delivered via an electronic application containing guidelines, information, and tailored feedback. The hypothesis is that the application will improve adherence to the ERP.
A dose escalation trial to assess the safety of plerixafor in patients with advanced pancreatic, high grade serous ovarian and colorectal cancer. To identify the proof of mechanism, by demonstrating alterations in T-cell tumour distribution, ideally associated with loss of tumour cells, measured by immunostaining, and changes in FDG uptake.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of S 95005 in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who are refractory or intolerant to standard chemotherapies in terms of Progression-Free Survival rate at 2 months in the Russian population.
This is a monocentric, single arm, prospective, open-label trial of a combination treatment consisting of pembrolizumab and maraviroc in previously treated subjects who have refractory microsatellite stable (MSS) metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC).
Systemic inflammation caused by surgery may aggravate immunosuppression in immunocompromised cancer patients. The natural killer (NK) cell is a critical part of anti-tumor immunity. ketamine, a N-methyl-D-asparate receptor antangonist, has anti-inflammatory activity and opioid-sparing effect. This study investigate the effect of intraopertaive ketamine administration on imm...
This will be a pilot study involving 5 patients diagnosed with colorectal carcinoma and treated with pre-operative chemotherapy and external beam radiation therapy at the Jewish General Hospital, whom will very soon undergo surgery. Participants will be sensitized by the instillation of a 250 mL enema containing 1.6 mmol of HAL. The enema will be administered with a plastic...
This is a multicenter, open-label, Phase 1B/2 study to evaluate the safety and assess the preliminary anti-tumor activity of binimetinib administered in combination with nivolumab or nivolumab + ipilimumab in adult patients with advanced metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) with microsatellite stable (MSS) disease and presence of a RAS mutation that have received at least on...
The primary purpose of this randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, crossover clinical trial is to evaluate the efficacy of dietary supplementation with Bifidobacterium infantis NLS super strain among celiac disease patients on a gluten-free who have persistent gastrointestinal symptoms.
Patients with non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) complain about gastrointestinal and extraintestinal symptoms while consuming gluten-containing cereals. The symptoms strictly correlate with ingestion of gluten-containing cereals and disappear quickly under elimination diets. Till now, there are no specific markers to diagnose NCGS. This study aims to determine the effect ...
The study is to assess whether the staff in gastroenterology unit are sticking to the agreed up on unit's protocol in management of chronic diarrhea over the period of one year(september 2017-september 2018)
Colorectal cancer is a preventable and/or a treatable cancer, but at least 43% of the United States population is not up-to-date with screening. Although 90% of colorectal cancer screening is done using colonoscopy, most other countries use fecal immunochemical tests, reserving colonoscopy for those with a positive fecal immunochemical test. This project will provide the fo...
One striking observation is that a large portion of the inter-person variation in serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels is unexplained. In vitro and in vivo studies indicate vitamin D synthesizing and metabolizing enzymes are Mg-dependent. Magnesium (Mg) supplementation substantially reversed the resistance to vitamin D treatment in patients with magnesium-dependent vi...

Glutaminase inhibitor CB-839 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking som...
Catheter ablation with pulmonary vein (PV) isolation is a commonly performed strategy employed for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, ablation in the posterior wall of the left atrium can cause thermal injury to the esophagus. Thermal injury is very common and occurs in up to 40% of AF ablations per some studies. When significant thermal injury to the esoph...
