Study Comparing Conventional and Fast Track Multi-Discipline Treatment Interventions for Colorectal Cancer

2014-07-23 21:09:55 | BioPortfolio


A new notion"Fast Track Multi-Discipline Treatment" for colorectal cancer is thought with several benefits such as shorter hospitalization stay and less costs. This randomized study aims to compare the differences between conventional and Fast Track Multi-Discipline Treatment for colorectal cancer in hospitalization day, complications, costs and quality of life.


Laparoscopic Surgery, Fast Track Treatment and XELOX Chemotherapy have been introduced in the treatment of colorectal cancer. All of these procedures are contributed to reduce the hospitalization stay. However, the most economical mode for combination of these procedures is still unclear. This is a randomized controlled study, a new notion"Fast Track Multi-Discipline Treatment" is proposed, which is the combination of the Laparoscopic Surgery, Fast track perioperative treatment during perioperative period and XELOX Chemotherapy. The purpose of this study is to compare the Fast Track Multi-Discipline Treatment with the conventional treatment(Open Surgery with conventional treatment during perioperative period and mFolfox6 chemotherapy) for colorectal cancer on several aspects like the average hospitalization day, complications, costs and quality of life.The focus of the study will be to investigate whether the Fast Track Multi-Discipline Treatment reduces hospital stay with similar complications compared with conventional perioperative treatment. Moreover, the trial will clarify whether laparoscopic surgery is essential for Fast Track Multi-Discipline Treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.

Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

Treatment designed to help prevent a relapse of a disease following the successful primary treatments (INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY and CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY) with a long-term low-dose drug therapy.

Combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery. It is commonly used in the therapy of cancer.

Initial drug treatment designed to bring about REMISSION INDUCTION. It is typically a short-term and high-dose drug treatment that is followed by CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY and then MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
