A Study to Compare Somatostatin Analogues with Perioperative Antibiotics versus Prolonged Antibiotics
The purpose of this study is to to determine the individual treatment effect of somatostatin and whether duration of antibiotic therapy coupled with octreotide provides improved outcomes after pancreaticoduodenectomy.
Gemcitabine Plus Cisplatin With or Without Bintrafusp Alfa (M7824) in Participants With 1L Biliary Tract Cancer (BTC)
Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ; Rochester, MN; Jacksonville, FL
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether bintrafusp alfa in combination with the current standard of care (SoC) (gemcitabine plus cisplatin) improves overall survival (OS) or progression-free survival (PFS) in chemotherapy and immunotherapy-naïve participants with locally advanced or metastatic BTC compared to placebo, gemcitabine and cisplatin.
Understanding the Challenges, Behavioral Patterns, and Preferences Towards Participation in Clinical Trials in Minority Patient Populations
Jacksonville, FL; Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ; Rochester, MN
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the challenges, behavioral patterns, and preferences of minority patient participation in clinical trials. Also, to develop and validate a personalized clinical trial educational platform to boost participation among underserved cancer patients.
The Circulating Cell-free Genome Atlas Study
Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ; Jacksonville, FL; Rochester, MN
GRAIL is using deep sequencing of circulating cell-free nucleic acids (cfNAs) to develop assays to detect cancer early in blood. The purpose of this study is to collect biological samples from donors with a new diagnosis of cancer (blood and tumor tissue) and from donors who do not have a diagnosis of cancer (blood) in order to characterize the population heterogeneity in cancer and non-cancer subjects and to develop models for distinguishing cancer from non-cancer.
