Efficacy of Imatinib and 5-FU/Leucovorin in Patients With Advanced Carcinoma of the Gallbladder and Bile Duct

2014-08-27 03:12:31 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To test the efficacy of a combination chemotherapy of imatinib and 5-FU in advanced or metastatic cholangiocellular carcinoma.

Description

Efficacy: Tumor assessments should be performed by a CT or MRI scan, throughout the study. All assessments should be performed within 14 days of the scheduled day according to the visit schedules, and whenever clinically indicated otherwise. Radiological studies must use the same techniques as used at baseline. Evaluation will be based on RECIST criteria.

Safety: Safety assessments will consist of evaluating adverse events and serious adverse events, laboratory parameters including hematology, chemistry, vital signs, physical examinations, and documentation of all concomitant medications and/or therapies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A congenital anatomic malformation of a bile duct, including cystic dilatation of the extrahepatic bile duct or the large intrahepatic bile duct. Classification is based on the site and type of dilatation. Type I is most common.

The largest bile duct. It is formed by the junction of the CYSTIC DUCT and the COMMON HEPATIC DUCT.

The duct that is connected to the GALLBLADDER and allows the emptying of bile into the COMMON BILE DUCT.

Passages external to the liver for the conveyance of bile. These include the COMMON BILE DUCT and the common hepatic duct (HEPATIC DUCT, COMMON).

Predominantly extrahepatic bile duct which is formed by the junction of the right and left hepatic ducts, which are predominantly intrahepatic, and, in turn, joins the cystic duct to form the common bile duct.
