Circulating Tumor DNA clinical trials at UC Irvine
2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
Pilot Comparing ctDNA IDV vs. SPV Sample in Pts Undergoing Biopsies for Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Cancers
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This is a prospective pilot protocol investigating whether ctDNA detection be improved by sampling the cancer draining vein versus the standard practice of sampling from a peripheral vein in patients who are undergoing biopsies for hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancers.
Circulating Tumor DNA Testing in Predicting Treatment for Patients With Stage IIA Colon Cancer After Surgery
Sorry, not currently recruiting here
This phase II/III trial studies how well circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (ctDNA) testing in the blood works in predicting treatment for patients with stage IIA colon cancer after surgery. ctDNA are circulating tumor cells that are shed by tumors into the blood. Finding ctDNA in the blood means that there is very likely some small amounts of cancer that remain after surgery. However, this cancer, if detected, cannot be found on other tests usually used to find cancer, as it is too small. Testing for ctDNA levels may help identify patients with colon cancer after surgery who do benefit, and those who do not benefit, from receiving chemotherapy.
