Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
The objective of this research is to determine the feasibility of establishing organoid tumor models using scant solid tumor tissues obtained by image-guided core needle biopsy procedures during routine clinical care. The routine clinical biopsy may be by image-guidance, endoscopic-guidance (e.g., EGD, colonoscopy, bronchoscopy), direct visualization (e.g., skin biopsy) and surgical exploration. Once established, the tumor organoids’ response to anti-cancer agents will be assessed. If proven feasible, this technique can potentially be integrated into routine clinical care of solid tumor patients and help guide the treatment of the donor patient in the clinic.
