Proteomic Analysis of HLA Complex in Solid Cancers: Breast, Ovary, Colon, Rectum, Stomach, and Pancreas

2014-07-23 21:30:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the presence of proteins in solid tumors which may lead to an immune response

Description

The main objective of the study is to evaluate which proteins are presented by the HLA complex of solid tumors. Secondary objectives include to evaluate whether an immune response specific to these proteins has actually been provoked and whether there is a similar immune response following recurrence. Real specimens will be evaluated using PCR and mass spectrometry.

Establishing Effective Screening Methods for Diagnosing Hereditary Nonpolypoisis Colorectal Cancer

Correct identification of Lynch syndrome at the time of colorectal cancer presentation is important. We aim to find best ways to screen patients with colorectal cancer in Korea.

Post-Op Quality of Life After Colorectal Surgery

The purpose of this study is to produce a user-friendly tool- in the form of a questionnaire - to accurately assess early quality of life in patients after abdominal colorectal surgery fro...

Performance of SGM-101 for the Delineation of Primary and Recurrent Tumor and Metastases in Patients Undergoing Surgery for Colorectal Cancer

The performance of SGM-101, an intraoperative imaging agent, will be compared to that of standard "white light" visualization during surgical resections of colorectal cancer.

Use of Phosphodiesterase 5 Inhibitors Associates With Risk of Colorectal Cancer in Men With Benign Colorectal Neoplasms.

Phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors have been proposed to have chemopreventative effects on colorectal cancer (CRC), although data are needed from population-based studies. We performed a nationwide...

Prospective colonoscopic study to investigate risk of colorectal neoplasms in first-degree relatives of patients with non-advanced adenomas.

The risk associated with a family history of non-advanced adenoma (non-AA) is unknown. We determined the prevalence of colorectal neoplasms in subjects who have a first-degree relative (FDR) with non-...

The Diagnostic Performance for Colorectal Neoplasms Using Magnified Endoscopy Differs between Experts and Novice Endoscopists: A Post Hoc Analysis.

Magnified endoscopy is difficult for novice endoscopists because it requires both knowledge and skill of endoscopic diagnosis. The aim of this study was to examine the diagnostic performance of novice...

Effect of a Single Aspirin Dose Prior to Fecal Immunochemical Testing on Test Sensitivity for Detecting Advanced Colorectal Neoplasms: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Fecal immunochemical tests for hemoglobin are widely used for colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. Observational studies suggested that sensitivity of fecal immunochemical tests for detecting advanced n...

Perioperative and long-term outcomes of laparoscopic liver resections for non-colorectal liver metastases.

Liver is a common metastatic site not only of colorectal but of non-colorectal neoplasms, as well. However, resection of non-colorectal liver metastases (NCRLMs) remains controversial. The aim of this...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.

A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.

Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms associated with other malignancies, more commonly of ovarian or uterine origin. When also associated with SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS, it is called MUIR-TORRE SYNDROME.

A form of LYNCH SYNDROME II associated with cutaneous SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS. Muir-Torre syndrome is also associated with other visceral malignant diseases include colorectal, endometrial, urological, and upper gastrointestinal neoplasms.

Clusters of colonic crypts that appear different from the surrounding mucosa when visualized after staining. They are of interest as putative precursors to colorectal adenomas and potential biomarkers for colorectal carcinoma.
