The Pain Squad+ Smartphone App To Support Real-Time Pain Management for Adolescents With Cancer
Pain negatively affects the quality of life of adolescents with cancer (AWC). It can also represent a high cost to the healthcare system and families. In response, our team has built a smartphone-based app, called Pain Squad+, which can give AWC real-time advice to manage their pain. The app uses pain diaries and personalized pain advice plus support from a registered nurse to give real-time pain management in all settings. This study will look at the impact of Pain Squad+, with or without the nurse support, on AWC health quality and healthcare costs over time.Start: December 2019
ALND vs RDT in Positive Sentinel Node After Neoadjuvant Therapy
In the case of primary surgery, in patients with sentinel node involvement, it has already been shown that omitting axillary lymph node dissection (ALND), often combining axillary radiotherapy (RT), does not worsen the prognosis and does significantly reduce the appearance of lymphedema. However, patients who have received neoadjuvant systemic treatment cannot benefit from this option, even though in the majority of those who have responded well to treatment, a residual disease in the armpit is low, but there are no studies yet published that supports the possibility of not performing lymphadenectomy. The primary endpoint of this study is to assess whether the irradiation of the axilla concerning axillary lymph node dissection is not inferior in recurrences and overall survival, in patients with positive sentinel lymph node (SN) after neoadjuvant systemic treatment.Start: June 2021
Signal Transduction Analysis in OVarian cancER
PROBLEM DEFINITION/OBJECTIVE: Ovarian cancer is the 5th most lethal cancer in the world due to the fact that tumours are detected at late stage of disease, currently without curative therapies at that stage. Standard therapy consists of surgery and chemotherapy. Despite this aggressive treatment overall five year survival is only 30%. Tumors are driven by cellular signal transduction (ST) pathways. Identifying activity of these pathways in cancer tissue can be used to choose an appropriate targeted drug. A number of targeted therapy drugs have become available, or are being developed that target individual ST pathways. Identification of the predominant ST pathway in cancer has shown to be extremely difficult. A newly developed reliable mRNA analysis technique (STAnalysis) is able to assess which pathway/s is/are active indicating which targeted therapy is deemed to be effective. STUDY DESIGN: A multicentre prospective cohort study. STUDY POPULATION: Patients with platinum-refractory/resistant or recurrent ovarian cancer. DIAGNOSTIC INTERVENTION & COMPARATOR: Analysis of the prevalent ST pathway and targeted therapy towards this pathway. OUTCOME MEASURES: Increase in survival.Start: January 2021
" Application of Art Therapy in Oncology: Evaluation of the Symptomatic of Patients Suffering From a Cancerous Disease"
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of art-therapeutic management on a patient with cancer, during chemotherapy treatment, on the reduction of physical or psychological symptoms. Art therapy is a non-drug approach that can help some patients cope with the consequences of cancer beyond the care provided. The common psychosocial difficulties experienced by cancer patients are pain, fatigue, depression, anxiety, drowsiness. In sum, the well-being and quality of life of the patient throughout the illness. The main objective is to evaluate the impact of art therapy, as a supportive care, on improving the well-being felt after a session of cancer treatments (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, ...), during 6 sessions( around 24 days between 2 sessions) , at patients with a cancer pathology using two questionnaires, one on the evaluation of symptoms (ESAS), the other on the quality of life (FACT-G).Start: January 2020
