Gene Expression Analysis of Patients With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Receiving Oxaliplatin Based Chemotherapy Regimen
1.1 To collect pathological tumor specimens of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer in a prospective fashion for correlative studies of response to an oxaliplatin based chemotherapy regimen.
1.2 To determine a gene expression profile that predicts response to an oxaliplatin based chemotherapy regimen in this cohort of patients.
This is a single-arm, non-randomized trial of oxaliplatin and capecitabine. Patients that are placed on other studies that utilize the same chemotherapy regimen can enter this study. Those patients will be treated according to the clinical study on which they have been entered. For patients not on another clinical trial, the treatment outlined below should be followed.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Colonic Diseases, Functional
Chronic or recurrent colonic disorders without an identifiable structural or biochemical explanation. The widely recognized IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME falls into this category.
Functional obstruction of the COLON leading to MEGACOLON in the absence of obvious COLONIC DISEASES or mechanical obstruction. When this condition is acquired, acute, and coexisting with another medical condition (trauma, surgery, serious injuries or illness, or medication), it is called Ogilvie's syndrome.
Inflammation of the COLONIC DIVERTICULA, generally with abscess formation and subsequent perforation.
A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of COLONIC DIVERTICULA in the COLON. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial, including colon aging, motor dysfunction, increases in intraluminal pressure, and lack of dietary fibers.
Pathological processes in the COLON region of the large intestine (INTESTINE, LARGE).
Safety & tolerability of FOLFOX4 regimen in the adjuvant treatment of colon cancer in Asian patients
The standard procedure for treating colonic cancer is changing from open surgery to laparoscopic surgery. Following open colonic surgery patients are fatigued and loss body mass and have a...
The purpose of this study is to determine: 1. What quantity of bacteria is spilled into the abdomen during a colon resection 2. If there is a correlation between the quantity and pos...
Evaluate accuracy of PCCE-2 in detecting patients with colonic polyps as compared to conventional colonoscopy.
The general aim of the current study is to describe the effect of pregabalin on colonic and sensory functions in healthy individuals.
PURPOSE: To develop PEGylated multi-walled carbon nanotubes as a sustained release drug delivery system. METHODS: Oxaliplatin was incorporated into inner cavity of PEGylated multi-walled carbon nanotu...
Oxaliplatin is a key drug for colorectal cancer, but it causes acute peripheral neuropathy (triggered by cold) and chronic neuropathy (sensory and motor neuropathy) in patients. Neurotropin, a non-pro...
We describe a patient who experienced immediate onset severe thrombocytopenia as part of a hypersensitivity reaction to oxaliplatin, following substantial relatively uncomplicated previous exposure to...
Previous studies have demonstrated the involvement of transcriptional factor forkhead box M1 (FoxM1) in cellular senescence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In the present study, we revealed that ox...
Oxaliplatin is a third-generation platinum compound and has been widely employed in the treatment of colorectal cancer. Despite its good efficacy, it is reported to induce immune-mediated cytopenia. W...
