Hypothesis: What is the natural course after treatment with radioactive iodine in patients with hyperthyroidism? What are the determinants for the development of acute hypo- or hyperthyroidism after treatment with radioactive iodine without antithyroid drugs?
The researchers investigated the rate of biochemical remission in patients without radioactive iodine therapy compared to patients with low dose radioactive iodine treatment in differentiated thyroid cancer patients who underwent total thyroidectomy.
The purpose of this study is to find out if the drug AZD6244 can improve the radioactive iodine uptake by the patient's metastatic thyroid cancer. The investigator will also be testing the tumor specimen taken at the time of your surgery for specific genetic changes to see if one of them in particular (the BRAF oncogene) makes your cancer more likely to become sensitive to radioactive iodine after treatment with the drug. The investigators want to find out if AZD6244 helps to ...
RATIONALE: Radioactive iodine may be effective in reducing the rate of recurrence of liver cancer after surgery to remove the tumor. It is not yet known if radioactive iodine is more effective than no further treatment after surgery. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to determine the effectiveness of radioactive iodine in treating patients who have undergone surgery for liver cancer.
RATIONALE: Radioactive drugs, such as radioactive iodine, may carry radiation directly to tumor cells and not harm normal cells. Placing a gene called Ad5CMV-NIS in prostate cancer cells may help the prostate cells take in more radioactive iodine and thus kill the cancer cells. Drugs, such as liothyronine sodium, may protect the thyroid from the side effects of radioactive iodine. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of gene therapy given ...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of radioactive microsphere infusion as a treatment for liver metastases from colon or rectal cancer. The investigators hypothesis is that the administration of microspheres between first and second line chemotherapy will increase progression-free survival time by about 2.5 months and may also improve tumor response rates to subsequent second line chemotherapy.
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate a new radioactive compound used in positron emission tomography (PET) scans in identifying tau tangles (a certain protein that might be associated with Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer's Disease) in the brain, and if the amount of tau tangles in the brain has a relationship to cognitive status. This study involves a PET scans using the radioactive compound, F 18 T807 for measurement of tau deposition. This radioactive compound is...
RATIONALE: FR901228 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It may also help radioactive iodine and chemotherapy work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drug. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well FR901228 works in treating patients with recurrent and/or metastatic thyroid cancer that has not responded to radioactive iodine.
Thyroid cancers that have spread beyond the neck are not curable. About 30,000 people worldwide die from thyroid cancer every year. Usually, thyroid cancers get worse because the cancer cells become more and more abnormal through a process that is called dedifferentiation. Radioactive iodine is a standard treatment for this type of thyroid cancer. Patients will usually receive multiple dose of radioactive iodine over the course of their cancer journey. Thyroid cancers lo...
Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is widely accepted as the best index of kidney function in health and disease, and accurate values are required for optimal clinical decision making and in large-scale epidemiologic studies and clinical trials. Current recommended methods for measuring GFR are expensive, cumbersome to administer and assay and requires urine collection and administration of radioactive materials. The purpose of this study is to evaluate two non-radioactive mark...
Hyper polarized Xenon-129 MRI will be directly compared to a radioactive Xe-133 scintigraphy to detect defects in lung ventilation from airflow limitation. This study is conducted as a pilot study with intention to conduct a larger clinical trial.
The goal of the study is to evaluate a new imaging test that may allows the investigators to predict the uptake of radioactive iodine by thyroid cancer faster than the current standard and that does not interfere with the uptake of radioactive iodine used for therapy.
This open-label, non-randomized study will assess the absorption, metabolism, and excretion of radioactive-labeled [14C]-GDC-0973 in healthy male volunteers. Volunteers will receive a single dose of [14C]-GDC-0973.
The purpose of this randomized trial is to determine the superiority of utilizing radioactive seed localization (RSL) over wire-guided localization (WL) for palpable or non-palpable malignant lesions in patients undergoing breast conservation surgery (BCS).
Postoperative administration of local anesthetics is effective for postoperative pain management across surgical specialties but the optimal type of catheter (single, few or multiholed catheters) has not been determined. This study investigates wound spread of a radioactive isotope (technetium) administered in different types of catheters after total hip arthroplasty.
The study is designed to evaluate the clinical efficacy, safety and tolerability of selumetinib with radioactive iodine therapy in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer.
This phase II trial is studying how well AZD6244 works in treating patients with papillary thyroid cancer that did not respond to radioactive iodine. AZD6244 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an radioactive airway stent loaded with 125I seeds compared to a conventional airway stent in patients with malignant airway obstruction caused by both primary and metastatic malignant tumors.
This study will examine the biological fate of radioactive SB-751689 administered to healthy males and healthy postmenopausal women. Subjects will receive a single oral dose of radioactive SB-751689. Excreta and blood samples will be taken over the course of 7 days. This study will help determine the major route of elimination of SB-751689 in humans. It will also provide samples (blood, plasma, urine, and stools) for analysis of metabolites, if any.
This is a multicentric prospective non-randomized phase II trial, with two independent arms: one for patients with RAS mutation and one for patients with BRAFV600E mutation.
This is multicenter, open-label, randomized, active-controled, phase IV study of local direct intra-tumor injection of rAd-p53 monotherapy, with concurrent radioactive iodine , or combination with surgery for treatment of advanced malignant thyroid tumors.
This phase II trial studies how well lenvatinib works when given together with standard of care iodine I-131 in treating patients with radioactive iodine-sensitive differentiated thyroid cancer. Lenvatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
The purpose of this study is to examine breast cancers that express the protein (NIS) that may be found in malignant breast tissues and to evaluate proteins found in blood and their relationship to NIS, to test whether iodide can be concentrated by breast cells to possibly treat some breast cancers with radioactive iodine, and to calculate the amount of radioactive iodine entering breast cancer cells, how long your cancer retains the agent as well as how much is taken up by oth...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new diagnostic imaging test, positron emission tomography (PET), with a different radioactive form of iodine called iodine-124. This form is able to accurately measure the amount of radioactive iodine uptake in the cancer. If the new test determines sufficient radioiodine uptake in the cancer, treatment will continue as usual. However, if the new test shows only low radioiodine uptake, a decision may be made that the benefit from radio...
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, a drug called vemurafenib, either alone or combined with another treatment called radioactive iodine, has on the patient and thyroid cancer. It is not known if vemurafenib works against thyroid cancer. This study will test in a small number of patients if it can be used with radioactive iodine to treat thyroid cancers. This type of study is called a pilot study. If the results are positive, a larger study w...
