Does Maitake Mushroom Extract Enhance Hematopoiesis in Low-Risk, Untreated Myelodysplastic Patients?

Researchers from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, in collaboration with The New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Medical College of Cornell University, are conducting a study of a medicinal mushroom extract called Maitake (pronounced my-tock-e). Laboratory studies show that Maitake can reduce the growth of cancer in animals. The Maitake does not kill cancer cells directly. It is believed to work through the immune system (the body's defense system against infection). Ou...

Psychosocial Support for Cancer Patients

This is an international, 3-site trial (Winnipeg Canada, MSKCC NYC, Perth Australia) accruing 120 patients per site (120x3). The purpose of this study is to compare two types of counseling for cancer patients: "Dignity Psychotherapy" and "Supportive Psychotherapy" as well as "Standard Palliative Care." Many cancer patients seek counseling to help with the emotional burden of their illnesses. Counseling often helps them cope with cancer by giving them a place to express their f...

Detection of Peritoneal Micrometastasis in Gastric and Pancreatic Cancer in Peritoneal Wash Samples

We are undertaking a study of patients with gastric or pancreatic cancer. A common place for cancer to return after surgery for gastric or pancreatic cancer is the inside lining of the abdomen, called "peritoneal metastasis". At the time of surgery, washing the abdomen with a mild salt solution may reveal free cancer cells in the abdomen which could develop into peritoneal metastasis. Recently, surgeons here at Memorial Sloan-Kettering have found that patients who have these ce...

Evaluating The Response to Pre-Operative Chemotherapy and/or Radiation Therapy For Rectal Cancer Using Three-Dimension Transrectal Ultrasound

Traditional transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) is a technique used to help determine the stage of rectal cancer. All patients at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center with rectal cancer have an ultrasound at the beginning of their treatment to accurately determine the depth of penetration (how deep into the rectal wall the tumor goes) and lymph node involvement of their tumor. This information helps determine the best way to treat the patient's disease. Three-dimensional TRUS (3-D ...

Trial of Prophylactic Versus Empirical Vancomycin for the Prevention of Streptococcal Sepsis After Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation

This is a randomized 2-arm study to compare two different times of giving the drug vancomycin. Half of the patients will begin vancomycin two days before a bone marrow transplant. The other half will get it as soon as they have the first fever. Streptococci are bacteria that live in one's mouth and gut. These bacteria can escape into the blood when the lining of the mouth and gut weakens from cancer therapy. This can make the person who is undergoing a bone marrow transpla...

Lesion Dosimetry With 124-Iodine in Metastatic Thyroid Carcinoma

One of the most effective treatments for metastases from thyroid cancer is a form of radioactive iodine known as 131-I. For more than 50 years, 131-I has been used to find and destroy thyroid cancer cells that have spread to other parts of the body. In many cases this treatment destroys the metastatic cells. However, in some patients it does not appear to work completely. This study is designed to use a slightly different form of radioactive iodine (called 124-I) which can prec...

The patient will be having or have had a procedure to remove tissue. The doctors would like to use some of this tissue. The doctors will use it for laboratory studies on the causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sarcoma, gastrointestinal or other intra-abdominal cancers. They will only use ...

3-D Reconstruction of CT Scan Images in the Evaluation of Non-Specific Pulmonary Nodules

In recent years, more and more people are having lung CT scans performed to screen for various cancers. Many of them have small abnormalities detected, called "nodules", which - for a variety of reasons - doctors are unable to biopsy. As a result, many patients have their CT scans repeated on a regular basis to see if their nodules grow. This process can last several years. Many patients experience significant anxiety during this process, when they are aware of a spot in...

Placebo Controlled Trial of SOM230 for the Reduction of Post-Pancreatectomy Fistula, Leak, and Abscess

The purpose of this study is to help us learn more about how to lower the patient's risk of the most common complications after their pancreas operation. After tumors are removed and the remaining part of the pancreas is connected to the intestine or closed, a leakage of pancreatic fluid may occur. This fluid may form an "abscess" (collection of pus) or "fistula" that would need to be drained. A fistula is a persistent leakage of pancreatic fluid that sometimes occurs after pan...

Perceptions of Touch in People With Cancer

This study is a qualitative, phenomenological research design. The research question is the lived experience of adult oncology patients undergoing chemotherapy being touched and touching. The researcher will conduct minimally-structured interviews with a set of follow-up interviews to verify interpretations and ascertain additional participant reflections on the phenomenon of touch. The purpose of this study is to describe the sensation of touch in adult oncology patients who a...

First Line Pazopanib in Poor Risk Patients With Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

Patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) are classified according to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) criteria in three risk-groups: favourable, intermediate and poor. To our knowledge there is only one study which examined the poor risk group (Hudes et al.), which led to the approval of temsirolimus in this population. However temsirolimus demonstrated a low response rate of 8.6% according to Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumor (RECIST) criteria...
