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

09:10 EDT 21st April 2015 | 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

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if ponatinib can help to control CML in chronic phase. The safety of this drug will also be studied. Ponatinib is designed to block t...

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...

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...

Function and subsets of dendritic cells and natural killer cells were decreased in gastric cancer.

Dendritic cells (DCs) and natural killer (NK) cells initiate specific immune responses against tumor cells. The aim of the present study was to determine the cytotoxicity and the subsets of the DC and...

ABO blood group and the risk of cancer among middle-aged people in Taiwan.

The relationship between ABO blood group and cancer was observed in many epidemiological researches. Our aim is to study the relationship between ABO blood group and the risk of cancer in the Taiwanes...

Blood-Based Tests for Colorectal Cancer Screening: Do They Threaten the Survival of the FIT Test?

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in industrialized nations, accounting for 10 % of the total cancer burden with an individual lifetime risk of ~6 % in the USA (Siegel et...

Cerebral venous thrombosis in a breast cancer patient taking tamoxifen: Report of a case.

Tamoxifen reduces breast cancer risk, but can cause thromboembolic complications. Cerebral venous thrombosis is a rare form of stroke in which blood clots occlude the dural sinus or cerebral veins.

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. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

Unlawful act of taking property.
