RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells. Evaluating blood or tissue samples from patients with cancer may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA, identify biomarkers related to cancer, and predict how we...
Millions of women suffer from overactive bladder, and the changes in bladder function affect their quality of life. The study team believes that it needs to be better understand why women get overactive bladder in the first place so that better treatments can eventually be offered. The purpose of this study is to determine why women with insulin resistance are more likely to get overactive bladder. Overactive bladder is a type of bladder control problem that can cause so...
The primary objective is to examine the impact on progression-free survival of targeted therapy for breast cancer suggested by proteomic and genomic profiling.
The purposes of this study is to evaluate a new genetic-based test which will identify patients diagnosed with muscle-invasive bladder cancer before their surgery, who might have specific genes, which will increase their chances of recurrence of cancer after their surgery. Some patients who are diagnosed with bladder cancer and have their had bladder removed, will have a recurrence of cancer sometime after their surgery. This recurrence is usually caused by tumor cells ...
Background: Bladder cancer is a common cancer in the U.S. Survival rates for metastatic bladder cancer have not gotten better for 15 years. Diagnosing and assessing the disease is important for treating it. The best way to tell what stage a cancer is in is computed tomography. This is also called CT. But it does not always give the best images of the bladder. Adding a test called positron emission tomography (PET) can help. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is even better...
This research trial studies quality of life after bladder-preservation chemotherapy and radiation therapy (chemo-radiotherapy) in patients with bladder cancer that has spread into or through the muscle layer of the bladder (muscle-invasive bladder cancer). Bladder-preservation chemo-radiotherapy is a standard treatment for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer, however, chemo-radiotherapy may cause urinary tract, bowel, and sexual late side effects that negatively affect...
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood, urine, and tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that may occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer. It may also help doctors learn how genistein or placebo works in patients with bladder cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying genistein or placebo to compare how they work in patients who are undergoing surgery for bladder cancer.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether the use of genomics can help identify patient specific treatment choices in cancer. In order to test this, the investigators plan to use genomic sequencing technology to identify patient specific mutations in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) as compared to normal cells to identify mutations. Further analysis will identify potential treatment targets and whether there are any drugs that could be used for these particular mutations. Fol...
Bladder cancer is the most common urinary tract cancer, affecting men and women, and is the 5th most common cancer in the US (1). Yet bladder cancer research is underfunded relative to other common cancers. As a result, bladder cancer care is prone to evidence gaps that produce decision uncertainty for both patients and clinicians. The Comparison of Intravesical Therapy and Surgery as Treatment Options (CISTO) for Bladder Cancer Study has the potential to fill these critical ev...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been the leading cause of cancer death in Taiwan. Though Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and des-γ-carboxy prothrombin(DCP) are used as the tumor markers for diagnosis of HCCs. Thus, these two markers are not good enough for the early detection of small HCCs. To improve the survival, further investigations of the early diagnostic markers are still needed. SELDI is a proteomic profiling techniques in biomarker discovery. Its approach has been s...
This research aims to explore the therapeutic effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in muscular invasive bladder cancer of T2-4aN0M0, and the survival effect of combined-modality treatment model，then to clarify the probability of bladder preservation, corresponding cancer specific survival, and the quality of life.
The purpose of this study is to find out the highest safe dose of the investigational drug CP-675,206 when given in combination with BCG therapy to patients who have experienced recurrent superficial bladder cancer after standard BCG treatment. In addition, the study will look to see if taking CP 675,206 generates an immune response and evaluate how the drug affects superficial bladder cancer.
The purpose of this study is to learn about the quality of life of people living with bladder cancer. We are interested in learning about how the treatments for bladder cancer affect people. We plan to use the findings from this study to help doctors provide better care and information to patients with bladder cancer.
A multidisciplinary approach has led to the development of bladder-preservation therapy using maximal transurethral resection followed by radiotherapy with concomitant radio-sensitizing chemotherapy for muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of androgen deprivation therapy through administration of enzalutamide on preventing bladder cancer recurrences in patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC).
This is a pilot biomarker study designed to compare frequencies of mutations between groups of malignant, benign and normal tissue or blood of patients with parathyroid disease and identify the potential genes showing molecular aberrations as other types of cancer.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether neoadjuvant intravesical Gemcitabine is enough active in patients with a solitary, low risk superficial bladder cancer.After diagnostic urethrocystoscopy or bladder sonography, all patients will receive intravesical gemcitabine once a week during 6 weeks. Two weeks after finishing antiblastic therapy, all patients will be submitted to a new cystoscopy, with TUR or cold biopsies of the site of the initial lesion.
The measurement of circulating tumor cells is pursued in several cancers including breast and prostate cancer. The number of cells measured in these cancers has been shown to be prognostic. There is little information on the presence or importance of circulating tumor cells in bladder cancer. This trial is designed to determine if patients with advanced bladder cancer have circulating tumor cells and if these circulating cells are affected by treatment of the cancer.
The primary objective of this prospective, single-centre study is to establish the clinical performance characteristics of Xpert Bladder Cancer Monitor on the GeneXpert Instrument Systems in comparison to the methods currently used at the site for detecting recurrent bladder cancer.
The goal of this laboratory research study is to see if researchers can predict whose cancer will stay in remission and whose will return in patients receiving treatment for bladder cancer
