We will do systematic and functional assessment of non-melanoma skin cancer including precancerous lesions by OCT imaging and other diagnostic methods. The systematic assessment will be comparison of clinical diagnosis, histopathology, OCT images, spectrophotometry and high frequency ultrasound of non-melanoma skin cancer Functional exploration of non-melanoma skin cancer is done with Doppler-OCT and polarization-sensitive-OCT.
The proposed study is a pilot and feasibility study designed to develop materials to enhance early detection of melanomas among women at risk to develop melanoma due to indoor tanning, having a family history of melanoma or a personal history of melanoma. The hypothesis of this study is that women, who are engaged in health promotion by having mammograms, will be able to assess the personal relevance of skin self-examination (SSE), be interested in learning about SSE and able ...
RATIONALE: New diagnostic procedures, such as bioelectric field imaging, may help find and diagnose melanoma and other skin cancers. It may also be a less invasive way to check for skin cancer. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying bioelectric field imaging in diagnosing melanoma and other skin cancers in patients with skin lesions.
Evaluation of the mechanism of Action of talimogene laherparepvec (T-VEC) in patients with locally advanced non-melanoma skin cancer.
The proposed study is a continuation of a research program (STU00017005: Interventions to teach melanoma patients skin self-examination) designed to increase early detection of melanomas before they metastasize. In 2015, approximately 73,870 individuals in the U.S. will be diagnosed with invasive melanoma and about 9,940 will die from the disease. During 2002-2011, melanoma incidence increased at an average annual rate of 1.6% for men and 1.5% for women. People with a history o...
The goal of this study is to find out if some people are more likely to get melanoma, a form of skin cancer, than others are. To do this we will compare people who have had more than one melanoma to people who have had only one melanoma and to people who are similar but who have not developed melanoma. People respond to the environment in different ways. Some may be born with genes that make them more likely to get this type of skin cancer. Each person has many ways to repair ...
This study aims to examine whether the pain of topical photodynamic therapy (PDT) is significantly different when using low irradiance ambulatory light emitting diode (LED) devices compared with conventional higher irradiance hospital based LED light sources when used for superficial non-melanoma skin cancer. The investigators are also investigating the phototoxicity and efficacy of each regime in this randomized assessor-blinded clinical trial.
This study will have two phases, with an added usability test after Phase I and before Phase 2. Phase 1: Cognitive Interviews of materials in Spanish. Phase 2: Personalized Genomic Testing for Skin Cancer (PGT-SC). The overarching goal of this study is to learn more about how to maximize the availability, comprehension and appropriate uptake of personalized genomics among different populations in New Mexico. Primary Care patients will be recruited in their primary health clinic...
Spectrophotometric intracutaneous analysis (SIAscopy) is a new technique for imaging pigmented skin lesions and for diagnosing melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. The SIAscope is a portable system comprising of a laptop computer connected to a small handheld skin probe equipped with a light source. The skin lesion is interrogated with light of different wavelengths and the reflection spectra analysed by proprietary algorithms showing distribution, position and quantity of me...
The purpose of this study is to examine the health behaviors of melanoma survivors. We want to know about their thoughts and concerns. Melanoma is a type of skin cancer. The number of people being diagnosed with melanoma is growing. Many people who are diagnosed with melanoma are young. Little research has been done to find out how melanoma survivors feel years after they have been treated.
Though it is generally accepted that exposure to sunlight is a major causative factor for skin cancer, the risk for developing melanoma is not directly linked to sun exposure such as in non-melanoma skin cancer. Therefore, a dual pathway has been proposed, distinguishing melanoma that develops on skin that is chronically exposed to sunlight from those that occur on skin that is normally protected. The risk for each type of melanoma is believed to be determined in part by geneti...
The purpose of this study is to find out if a new treatment called SCIB1 can be used safely when added to pembrolizumab (Keytruda), a standard treatment already approved in the UK and the USA for the treatment of advanced melanoma (skin cancer). Pembrolizumab is an antibody treatment for cancer. The study will also look to see if SCIB1 can increase the likelihood that melanoma patients will respond to pembrolizumab, and also if SCIB1 can help to make those responses last ...
Melanoma is a cutaneous malignancy that has the potential for local (skin) and regional (lymph node) recurrence. These recurrences may be difficult to detect in their earliest stages. We are attempting to use novel form of skin imaging that uses ultrasound combined with laser to identify these recurrences early, when they may be most amenable to treatment. This imaging will detect melanoma pigment below the surface of the skin and in the draining lymph nodes, as well as new ...
First-degree relatives of patients with melanoma have a greater risk of developing melanoma. Patients are advised orally to inform their first-degree relatives that they should protect their skin from UV radiation and ask for a skin examination from a general practitioner or dermatologist. The study will evaluate the effectiveness of a written sheet in addition to the usual oral counselling to increase acceptance of skin examination by the first-degree relatives. If effective, ...
The main purpose of this study is to estimate the proportion of patients with a type of skin cancer called melanoma who are progression free, (that is, the cancer has not gotten substantially worse), when treated with Anti-CD137 (4-1BB) (BMS-663513) at 0.1 mg/kg, 1 mg/kg or 5 mg/kg every 3 weeks or 1 mg/kg every 6 weeks
The use of MDS to access the presence of melanoma in the skin.
The almost 724,000 Americans survivors of melanoma are estimated to have 4 first degree relatives per case; thus, 2.8 million Americans are at increased risk of developing melanoma in comparison to the general public. Skin self-examination (SSE) with the assistance of a partner by these individuals could improve survival. If effective, the workbook tested in this proposal could be distributed to people at risk of developing melanoma by large scale means in physicians office.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of sirolimus on the prevention of new non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) in kidney transplant recipients.
Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer (NMSC) is the most commonly occurring type of skin cancer, and predominantly comprises (98%) Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCC) and Squamous Cell Carcinomas (SCC). About 3.3 million people in the United States (U.S.) are diagnosed with NMSC annually, equating about 5.4 million BCCs and SCCs. Low-dose Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) effectively destroys BCC and SCC without any invasive cutting, bleeding or stitching. There is no need for anesthesia, no risk...
RATIONALE: Inserting a modified herpesvirus gene into a person's melanoma cells may make the cancer more sensitive to the antiviral agent ganciclovir. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of gene therapy in treating patients who have stage IV melanoma.
Previous studies suggests that M-Vax, a melanoma vaccine prepared from patients own cancer cells, can stimulated patients' immune system to react against their cancer. AVAX has identified a dose and schedule of administration of M-Vax that work optimally. In this study, AVAX will determine whether M-Vax is effective in shrinkage of melanomas that have spread (stage IV). To increase it effectiveness, M-Vax administration will be followed by administration of low doses of inte...
The purpose of this study is to learn whether the patient might be interested in skin cancer genetic testing, and if so, what kinds of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors might result from this testing. Testing for skin cancer risk based on the MC1R gene is not currently used in clinical practice; it will be offered in this study for research purposes only.
The researcher can proved that certain compounds play an important role in the prevention of skin cancer. Researcher can use specific compounds, which classified as metabolic enzymes, and lower concentrations and complete absent in skin cancer cells. Researcher can biopsies of normal skin and precancerous or cancerous lesions, and can compare the concentrations of these compounds to determine the difference between the two areas. The result can lead to further understanding ...
Over 5 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States each year, more than all other cancers combined. Most of these cases are caused by excess exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun and artificial sources such as indoor tanning. Melanoma, approximately 87,000 of the annual skin cancer cases and one of the more deadly skin cancers, is on the rise. Previous research on these individuals suggests that while some change how much time they spend in the ...
RATIONALE: Chemoprevention therapy is the use of certain drugs to try to prevent the development or recurrence of cancer. Isotretinoin may be effective in preventing the development or recurrence of skin cancer. PURPOSE: Clinical trial to study the effectiveness of isotretinoin in preventing or slowing the growth of skin cancer in patients who have xeroderma pigmentosum or basal cell carcinoma.
