RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood, urine, and tissue in the laboratory from patients with cancer or chronic liver disease may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying blood, mouthwash, urine, and tissue samples from healthy volunteers and patients with liver cancer or chronic liver disease.
At this time, patients who have a cancer in the liver and who already have liver damage from cirrhosis, chemotherapy, or surgery may not be able to receive radiation therapy to the liver. Radiation to the liver in these patients may cause excessive liver damage. New methods of giving radiation to the liver may help these patients receive radiation therapy to help control cancer. The goal of this clinical research study is to find out if the new method of giving radiation...
The combined analysis of microbiome, immunological parameters and host genetics in patients has potential for applying personalized approaches of prevention, diagnostics or therapy in the future. However, the acquisition and analysis of these patient characteristics in a scientifically sound, technically reliable, cost-effective, practicable and future-oriented fashion are a far from trivial task. Therefore the objectives of the study are (i) to optimize a sample and data acqui...
RATIONALE: Studying samples of tumor tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer. PURPOSE: This laboratory study is looking at biomarkers in stored tumor samples from younger patients with liver cancer.
Liver cancer is a good target for anti-angiogenic treatments such as pazopanib. The effect of pazopanib in patients with liver cancer are unknown. This study is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability and best dose of pazopanib to be given to patient with liver cancer.
Liver cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. While the molecular pathogenesis of liver cancer has been extensively studied, less is known about how the molecular biology of liver cancer influences clinical outcome and treatment response. We are developing a translational research program that will characterize molecular changes in liver cancer. We plan to use molecular information obtained from studying liver tumor tissues to develop new diagnostics and treatment...
RATIONALE: Studying a patient's understanding of his or her illness, pain, symptoms, and quality-of-life may help the study of advanced cancer and may help patients live more comfortably. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying pain and symptom distress in patients with advanced colon cancer, rectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, or liver cancer.
Patients cohort is composed of 50 consecutive patients both male and female with hepatic malignancies, refered to our nuclear medicine department in the process of radioembolization between January 2010- August 2015. 26 of the patients were examined with Tc99-MAA and SPECT-CT and 24 patients were examined with Tc99-MAA , SPECT-CT and PET-CT. Our study protocol was as follows: 1. Collection of anamnestic data 2. Calculation of liver tumor volume with quantification s...
RATIONALE: Estrogen can stimulate the growth of cancer cells. Hormone therapy using tamoxifen may fight liver cancer by blocking the absorption of estrogen. It is not yet known whether receiving tamoxifen is more effective than no further therapy in treating patients with primary liver cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare high-dose tamoxifen with no further treatment in treating patients with liver cancer that cannot be surgically removed.
The purpose of this protocol is to provide supervised and limited access to Therasphere® treatment for patients with primary liver cancer and chemotherapy refractory liver metastasis who cannot be treated by surgical removal of the affected part of the liver. Patient response to treatment and any side effects of Therasphere® treatment will be examined.
RATIONALE: Cryosurgery kills cancer cells by freezing them during surgery. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of cryosurgery in treating patients with unresectable primary liver cancer or liver metastases.
Adult liver cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. The major risk factor for liver cancer is hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. The purpose of the study is to sequence the HBV genome in patients with chronic HBV infection, and in patients with liver cancer resulting from chronic HBV infection. The goal is to identify mutations in the HBV genome that predisposes these high risk individuals to the development of liver cancer.
This study aims to explore the efficacy and safety of radiofrequency ablation combined with S-1 in pancreatic cancer patients with liver metastasis, as well as the correlation of serum microRNA and patients' prognosis. This protocol will be overseen by the Fudan University Institutional Review Board which has Federal Wide Assurance through the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (Approved: April 25, 2002).
