  • Aggressive Malignancy PDX (Avatar) and Cryopreservation Program Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to assess the ability to successfully create numerous validated patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models from patient tumor specimens obtained at surgery/biopsy via the new Pathology/TRAG cryopreservation protocol, and to generate a large catalog and repertoire of previously unavailable histologically validated PDX.


  • A Study to Evaluate Gemcitabine, Cisplatin, and Nab-Paclitaxel to Treat Patients with High-Risk Liver Bile Duct Cancer Before Surgery Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate how well gemcitabine, cisplatin, and nab-paclitaxel work before surgery in treating participants with high-risk bile duct cancer in the liver (intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as nab-paclitaxel, cisplatin, and gemcitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving combination chemotherapy before surgery may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of normal tissue that needs to be removed.

  • Sirolimus, Gemcitabine Hydrochloride, and Cisplatin in Treating Patients At High Risk for Cholangiocarcinoma Recurrence After Liver Transplant or Surgery Rochester, MN

    This pilot phase I trial studies the side effects and best way to give sirolimus, gemcitabine hydrochloride, and cisplatin in treating patients at high risk for cholangiocarcinoma recurrence after liver transplant or surgery. Sirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride, 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 sirolimus with gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin may be an effective treatment for patients with a high ...

  • A Study to Assess Cisplatin and Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Children and Young Adults with Hepatoblastoma or Liver Cancer After Surgery Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to determine how well cisplatin and combination chemotherapy works in treating children and young adults with hepatoblastoma or liver cancer after surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, doxorubicin, fluorouracil, vincristine sulfate, carboplatin, etoposide, irinotecan, sorafenib, gemcitabine and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving combination chemotherapy after surgery may kill more tumor cells.

  • A Study to Develop and Validate Hybrid Molecular Imaging to Transform the Care of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Patients Rochester, MN

    The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate diagnostic performance of 68Ga-PSMA-dual contrast (gadavist and gadoxetate) PET/MRI OR PET/CT for HCC using surgical histopathology (either resection, transplant or biopsy specimens) or LI-RADS® categorization as gold standard.

  • A Study of Nivolumab in Patients With Hepatocellular Carcinoma Who Are at High Risk of Recurrence After Curative Hepatic Resection or Ablation Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ

    This study will investigate if nivolumab will improve recurrence-free survival (RFS) compared to placebo in participants with HCC who have undergone complete resection or have achieved a complete response after local ablation, and who are at high risk of recurrence

  • A Study to Evaluate Yttrium-90 Therapy for Radiation Lobectomy Jacksonville, FL

    The Patient Group 1 primary objective is to measure the distribution of 90Y glass microspheres throughout the tumor and non-tumor hepatic parenchyma, as assessed by same day postradioembolization study-specific non-FDG PET/CT scan. Correlate this measurement with mean lobar absorbed radiation dose and embolic load given to patients and time taken to achieve adequate Future Liver Remnant (> 40% of total liver volume) to determine if there is an optimal lobar dose and embolic load.

    The Patient Group 2 primary objectives are to assess the association of circulating and imaging biomarkers on Future Liver Remnant hypertrophy, and to assess progression-free survival between ...

  • Post-Surgical Based Efforts to Reduce Preventable Readmissions and Optimize Length of Stay Rochester, MN

    The investigators believe that the lessons learned from studies regarding 30-day and 90-day readmission are primarily due to failure of early symptom recognition, and medical error. Through the aid of remote monitoring and early symptom detection, the hypothesis for the current proposal is that interventions can be recommended in an earlier, remote fashion that may result in earlier post-surgical discharge, prevent decompensation, and prevent increased readmissions that have been associated with decreased LOS in other surgical populations.
