Clinical Validation of a Microfluidic Device for Isolation and Molecular Characterization of Circulating Tumor Cells

19:30 EDT 1st September 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To evaluate the efficiency of a microdevice for circulating tumor cells isolation and to correlate the circulating titre with response and progression.

Description

- Validate the clinical use of a mircofluidic device to capture circulating timor cells from a broad range of tumor types

- Characterize and identify these circulating tumor cells and demostrate cell viability with this capture method

- Apply this technology in clinically relevant settings and correlate to response to treatment and disease progression

- Elucidate predictive and pharmacodynamic biomarkers in the context of early phase trials of novel therapeutics

A Kidney Transplant Study to Look at the Effects of Taking Fixed Doses of CellCept Versus Taking Doses of CellCept Based on the Concentration of CellCept in the Blood When Taking Full or Reduced Dose Calcineurin Inhibitors

This research is being done to study the effects (good and bad) of taking CellCept based on blood concentrations versus taking a fixed dose of CellCept without measuring the blood concentr...

A Study to Compare Anti-HIV Drugs Given Twice a Day or Once a Day, With or Without Direct Observation

Anti-HIV drug therapy works best when the drugs are taken exactly as prescribed by a doctor. Because anti-HIV therapy often involves multiple drugs, some people have difficulty taking them...

Gene Expression Following Short Term Exposure to Neoadjuvant Endocrine Therapy in Invasive Breast Cancer

The purpose of this pilot study is to see if taking anastrozole (Arimidex) for 10 days causes changes in breast cancer cells. Anastrozole (Arimidex) is a drug used in the treatment of a ty...

PK of Tenofovir, Emtricitabine and Efavirenz in Healthy Volunteers

The purpose of the study is to look at the levels of three HIV medications: tenofovir, emtricitabine, and efavirenz in blood after the drug intake has been stopped in order to understand h...

Prognostic value of ABO blood group in patients with surgically resected colon cancer.

Background:Previous studies supported a link between the ABO blood type and survival for several types of malignancies. Nonetheless, the relationship between ABO blood type and survival in colon cance...

Study of the association between blood types and breast cancer among Isfahanian women with breast cancer.

Previous studies suggest a possible association between ABO blood group and the risk of breast cancer. The aim of this study is to investigate the presence of a possible association between breast can...

Direct detection of cancer biomarkers in blood using a "place n play" modular polydimethylsiloxane pump.

Cancer biomarkers have significant potential as reliable tools for the early detection of the disease and for monitoring its recurrence. However, most current methods for biomarker detection have tech...

Cancer Incidence and Mortality in a Cohort of US Blood Donors: A 20-Year Study.

Blood donors are considered one of the healthiest populations. This study describes the epidemiology of cancer in a cohort of blood donors up to 20 years after blood donation. Records from donors who ...

Self-efficacy for coping with symptoms moderates the relationship between physical symptoms and well-being in breast cancer survivors taking adjuvant endocrine therapy.

This study examined the relationships between physical symptoms, self-efficacy for coping with symptoms, and functional, emotional, and social well-being in women who were taking adjuvant endocrine th...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.

Skills and strategies, unrelated to the traits a test is intended to measure, that may increase test takers' scores -- may include the effects of coaching or experience in taking tests. (ERIC Thesaurus)

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.
