Detection of early esophageal cancer in surrounding normal tissue can be challenging even for experienced examiners. The early detection is essential to determine the following treatment. Early stages of esophageal cancers can be treated by endoscopic resection whereas advanced neoplasias might lead to an Operation of the esophagus. Diagnosis is made usually by biopsies of suspicious lesions or untargeted quadrant biopsies. The electrical properties in inflammatory tissue and c...
Does baseline impedance measured during the landmark phase of esophageal High resolution impedance manometry HRIM correlates with direct mucosal impedance measurement and discriminates GERD from non GERD patients?
The objective of this study is to design and use a novel, minimally invasive mucosal impedance (MI) technology to inexpensively and accurately test mucosal health in suspected gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and nonerosive reflux disease (NERD) patients as compared to those without GERD.
Nine to 30% of the population suffers from gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) - suggestive symptoms (heartburn, regurgitation, chest pain, chronic couch, sore throat). Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) is usually the first line treatment. However 20 to 60% of patients have persistent symptoms on proton pump inhibitor. Complementary examinations are then required to determine the cause of persistent symptoms (non compliance to treatment, persistent esophageal acid exposure despit...
Impedance planimetry using Endoscopic Functional Lumen Imaging Probe (EndoFLIP) device is a promising diagnostic tool to assess esophageal, esophago-gastric junction and pylorus function. It allows the measurement of esophageal and pylorus distensibility as well as contractile activity in response to distension. Examination is useful performed under sedation. General anesthesia might affect distensibility values. The aim of this study is to normal values for esophageal, esophag...
The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the impedance spectroscopy device prototype in detection of anal sphincter injuries in women in the early postpartum period. The study is prospective. The study group comprises 24 patients; included in it 6-8 weeks after natural delivery. The planned participation of each patient in the study is up to 4 weeks and three visits will take place at that time. After obtaining written consent, at the screen...
To determine the response to treatment with a novel esophageal stent loaded with 125I seeds for intraluminal brachytherapy versus a conventional covered stent in patients with advanced esophageal cancer.
Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) is defined as the reflux of gastric content into the esophagus that causes troublesome symptoms or complications. Nine to 30% of the population suffers from GERD-suggestive symptoms (heartburn, regurgitation, chest pain, chronic couch, sore throat). In the absence of warning signs, proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are prescribed as first-line treatment. However, 20 to 60% of patients are unsatisfied because of persistent symptoms when taking ...
The primary aim of this study is to assess the changes in the impedance parameters of muscles in inclusion body myositis (IBM) through electrical impedance myography (EIM), an emerging non-invasive electrodiagnostic technology. Muscle impedance parameters can potentially serve as an objective biomarker reflecting disease progression and severity.
This is a spontaneous, prospective, monocentric, observational, cohort study, with the aim of evaluating the effect of ultrasound-guided endoscopic fundoplication using the Medigus Ultrasonic Surgical Endostapler (MUSESystem; MediGus, Ltd. Israel) in patients with esophageal or extra-esophageal gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD)-related symptoms. The end of the study will be at the end of the 6-year follow-up of the last patient enrolled. The study proposes the following ...
A device for measuring body composition with a small electric current, at 200 μA, (bioelectrical impedance analysis, or BIA) was designed. The goal of this study is to validate the device against several existing devices using the same method of measuring body composition with a small electric current.
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as laser spectroscopy, may help find and diagnose breast cancer. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying laser spectroscopy to see how well it works in diagnosing breast cancer in women with breast lesions.
Patients with marginal physiologic reserve, severe frailty, and/or malnutrition may be regarded as unsuitable candidates for advanced cardiac replacement therapies. However, little data exist on precisely which measures are predictive of subsequent adverse events. Assessment of nutritional status and frailty is still largely predicated on crude and obsolete parameters, such as baseline serum albumin level or body mass index (BMI). In this prospective cohort study the investigat...
Multi-Center Prospective Randomized Trial Comparing Standard Esophagectomy Against Chemo-Radiotherapy for Treatment of Squamous Esophageal Cancer – Early Results From the Chinese University Research Group for Esophageal Cancer (CURE)
A multicenter randomized comparison of primary esophagectomy against definitive chemoradiotherapy for the treatment of squamous esophageal cancer.
RATIONALE: Photodynamic therapy uses light and drugs that make cancer cells more sensitive to light to kill tumor cells. This may be an effective treatment for esophageal cancer. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of photodynamic therapy in treating patients with Barrett's esophagus who have in situ esophageal cancer.
The goal of this study is to evaluate how treatment for esophageal cancer affects your quality of life. The findings of this study may help us understand how this disease and its treatment affect your lifestyle, diet, exercise, support system and overall quality of life. We hope this study will provide important information that can be used to develop programs to improve the quality of life of patients with esophageal cancer.
Citalopram is sometimes used in the treatment for gastro-esophageal reflux disease, however, there are no empirical data to support this. The investigators would like to know if citalopram has an effect on the lower esophageal sphincter pressure, transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations and reflux episodes. The investigators will investigate this by performing high resolution impedance manometry in healthy volunteers before and after a solid meal. This will be compared ...
The purpose of this Phase II, Open-label, single arm, exploratory study is to evaluate the efficacy and the safety of Apatinib（500mg/d）for the second - line treatment of esophageal cancer or esophageal and gastric
To explore the significance of Solute Carrier Family 1 Member 5 (SLC1A5) in the occurrence of esophageal cancer, by comparing the expression of SLC1A5 between esophageal cancer tissues and adjacent tissues.
the investigator aimed to observe the changes and difference of pharyngeal function parameters between the patients receiving the intubated or nonintubated thoracoscopy by esophageal manometry, impedance, and ultrasonography
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of erlotinib and FOLFOX in patients with esophageal or gastro-esophageal cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.
The prognosis of locally advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is poor,the role of chemotherapy as neoadjuvant therapy in locally advanced esophageal cancer has been established, which can convert some unresectable esophageal cancer into resectable esophageal cancer.PD-1 antibody has been shown to improve the pathological complete response rate in NSCLC, however, the data in neoadjuvant of esophageal squamous carcinoma is relatively rare. This study was designed to know t...
Depending upon the cancer stage, esophageal cancer can be treated with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of these modalities. Sometimes in addition to external radiation therapy or instead of external radiation therapy, select patients with esophageal cancer may benefit from localized radiation to the tumor, called esophageal brachytherapy. There are many different radiation techniques and delivery approaches for this type of specialized radiation thera...
Esophageal cancer is one of the most common malignancies of the digestive system. Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is the main type of esophageal cancer, accounting for more than 90% of esophageal cancer in China. The 5-year survival rate is about 15%~25%. Many patients with esophageal cancer are initially diagnosed as advanced, and many patients with early initial diagnosis will still relapse and metastasis after radical treatment. Currently, chemotherapy plays a central rol...
