Testing the Addition of an Antibody to Standard Chemoradiation Followed by the Antibody for One Year to Standard Chemoradiation Followed by One Year of the Antibody in Patients With Unresectable Stage III Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
This phase III trial studies how well an antibody (durvalumab) with chemotherapy and radiation therapy (chemoradiation) works in treating patients with stage III non-small cell lung cancer that cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as durvalumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with...
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of M3814 when given together with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride in treating patients with high or low grade ovarian cancer that has come back (recurrent). M3814 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pegylated lipo...
Surgery still remains the main treatment option for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) which is limited within the lung parenchyma and possibly invades the intrapulmonary or hilar nodes. The role of surgery in locally advanced NSCLC with the form of invasion of adjacent strictures or mediastinal nodes is a 30-year point of discussion and debate among thoracic surgeons, clin...
The placement of a small silicone prosthesis in the partial defects generated by conservative breast cancer surgery improves the aesthetic result, compared to the usual surgical technique, in a safe and reproducible way and compatible with adjuvant treatments. It could also potentially improve the quality of life of patients
The main objective of the study is to evaluate dose-exposure and safety of nintedanib in children and adolescents with fibrosing Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD).
The purpose of stage 1 of the study is to find out if blood tests can be used to see how the cancer is responding to treatment with pembrolizumab.
Very little is known about the role of X-inactive specific transcript RNA in human breast cancer and in regulating different response to therapy . the relation between the breast cancer predisposing gene BRCA1 & X-inactive specific transcript RNA has been investigated but still controversial. Loss of X chromosome inactivation (XCI) is observed in breast cancer . Other stu...
This study evaluates the effectiveness of a coping skills and exercise (CSTEX) intervention among post lung transplant patients aimed to reduce distress and improve functional capacity. Half of the patients will receive CSTEX and half will receive the standard of care plus transplant education (SOC-ED).
The aim of this study was to investigate that efficacy and safety of rh-endostatin（Endostar）combined with platinum-based doublet chemotherapy and Pembrolizumab as first line therapy in patients with advanced or metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer.
The purpose of this study is to test whether the study drug prexasertib is a safe and effective treatment for people with DSRCT or RMS when given in combination with the standard drugs irinotecan and temozolomide. The study will test different doses of prexasertib in combination with irinotecan and temozolomide to find the highest dose of prexasertib that causes few or mild...
Anal cancer is a common cancer among gay, bisexual and other men having sex with men (MSM). Its annual incidence is approximately 50-fold and 5-fold higher among HIV-positive MSM and HIV-negative MSM, respectively, compared to the rest of the general population. Like cervical cancer, it is primarily caused by human papillomaviruses (HPV). Unlike cervical cancer, there is no...
This trial will evaluate the addition of cytoreductive stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to standard of care combination ipilimumab and nivolumab (I/N) versus I/N alone for the treatment of metastatic kidney cancer.
The primary purpose of this study is to test whether CD22-CAR T cells can be successfully made from immune cells collected from pediatric and young adult subjects with relapsed/refractory B-cell malignancies (leukemia and lymphoma). Another purpose of this study is to test the safety and cancer killing ability of a cell therapy against a new cancer target (CD22).
Background: Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and it contributes to the development of many other serious diseases. Acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD) often lead to hospitalization. Severe hospitalization-requiring AECOPD carries very high economic costs for the healthcare system, and personal costs for patients. Smoki...
This trial studies the frequency of incident and prevalent of cancer in people living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) at cancer centers in Latin America. By counting how many people living with HIV/AIDS have cancer at these specific centers, researchers may better understand how they are being treated and cared for. This may...
Study the effect of using long term oxygen therapy in patients with interstitial lung disease and chronic hypoxia
The investigators plan to understand a comprehensive molecular profiling via the plasma, with the primary aim of using this form on analysis to guide subsequent treatment selection. This study will provide a better understanding of ALK resistance in the treatment of Asian lung cancers and allow for improved clinical outcomes by 'matching' the secondary mutations to an ALK i...
Prospective, single-arm, open label, multicentre, phase II pilot study to evaluate the immediate and short term (one month) impact of a new long acting double bronchodilator on innovative parameters in stable and moderate to severe COPD patients. - Variability and complexity of resting tidal breathing - Oscillatory resistance and reactance of airways Tidal volume va...
Persistent infections with high-risk subtypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) are recognized as the etiological factor for developing cervical cancer. The aim od this study was to identify a miRNA profile in patients with early-stage cervical cancer with positive lymph node metastasis treated. Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples of patients with a diagn...
This trial studies whether a telephone-based physical activity intervention before and after lung cancer surgery can be provided to older patients and their caregivers. The trial also aims to understand whether patients and family caregivers will be satisfied with the intervention. Participating in physical activity such as walking before and after lung cancer surgery may i...
This is a phase I/Ib, open-label, single-center, single-arm study of alisertib and osimertinib for patients with stage IV EGFR-mutated lung cancer, incorporating both a dose escalation and dose-expansion phase
The phase II, randomised Study is to explore the efficacy and safety of nivolumab as consolidation therapy in patients with locally advanced, unresectable non-small cell lung cancer (stage III) who have not progressed following neoadjuvant chemotherapy plus nivolumab and definitive concurrent chemoradiation therapy
This trial will investigate the feasibility of the Markerless Tumour Tracking technology.
This study will investigate whether liquid based cytology specimens are a feasible alternative to formalin-fixed paraffin embedded histology samples for detection of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations in lung adenocarcinoma using the Biocartis Idylla platform. The Biocartis Idylla is a fully automated, real-time PCR based molecular diagnostics system. The Idy...
