Sexes Eligible for Study: All

Ages:

18 Years to 89 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)

Description:

There is research supporting treatment of superficial fibromatoses (palmar fibromatosis and keloids) with triamcinolone acetonide injections. These lesions are histologically similar to deep fibromatoses (desmoid tumors ). Currently there is little literature evaluating the response of desmoid tumors to injections of triamcinolone acetonide. The investigators aim to perform a pilot study evaluating the response of desmoid tumors to intralesional triamcinolone. If positive results are observed (based on RECIST criteria), then a phase II study will be initiated.

Description:

Desmoids tumors are benign soft tissues tumors characterized by aggressiveness and potential local recurrence. There is a female predominance with a sex ratio of 2/1 and median age at diagnosis is about 30 years. Only a complete surgical excision is recommended in desmoids tumors . Some forms of desmoid tumors are recurrent and/or symptomatic and are not accessible to a conservative surgical treatment. In these clinical situations, only a medical treatment may achieve tumor control and quality of life maintenance. Place of systemic treatments in the management of desmoids tumors is poorly evaluated. Regarding chemotherapy, methotrexate and vinblastine protocol is actually the best evaluated combination, which allowed observing objective response rate between 40 and 75%. Toxicity was mainly marked by the risk of haematological toxicity. Pazopanib is an inhibitor of multi-target tyrosine kinase, in oral form, with selective type receptors -1, -2 and -3 of VEGF receptors on the

Description:

Desmoid- type fibromatosis (or desmoid tumor ) represents an intermediate grade neoplasm with a striking predilection for locally invasive growth and recurrence following resection. It occurs in children as well as young adults. As a typically localized disease, the historical standard of care for treatment has been surgical resection, with or without ionizing radiation. In some cases where surgical resection or radiation is not feasible, chemotherapy has been used. Two clinical trials conducted in the Pediatric Oncology Group (POG) and the Children's Oncology Group (COG) evaluated the role for either low intensity or non-cytotoxic chemotherapy for children with desmoid tumor that is not amenable to standard therapy. These were largely empirical treatment strategies or based on somewhat anecdotal observations. By better understanding desmoid tumor biology, even more effective therapy targeting a particular protein that is central to the disease can be developed. Desmoid tumor

Description:

Background: Desmoid tumors (also known as aggressive fibromatosis ), are rare, locally invasive, slow-growing soft-tissue tumors . The disease can be either asymptomatic or be associated with severe loss of organ function and significant morbidity. Treatment with the selective small-molecule Gamma-secretase inhibitor PF-03084014 caused significant tumor shrinkage in patients with unresectable desmoid tumors in an early phase clinical trial. The Notch pathway is a key regulator of cell differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis; aberrant signaling via the Notch pathway is associated with carcinogenesis. Objectives: Primary: Determine the response rate (CR+PR) of PF-03084014 in patients with desmoid tumors /aggressive fibromatosis Secondary: Assess symptom measures at baseline and on study; perform genotyping for germline and somatic mutations in APC and CTNNB1 genes; correlate clinical response to therapy with genotyping data; and assess mod

Ages:

18 Years to 120 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)

Description:

Background: Some types of cancer cells that have hormone receptors on their surfaces need the hormone estrogen to grow. The drug tamoxifen blocks estrogen from binding to the tumor cells, which helps to slow or stop the growth of cancer . Tamoxifen has been approved for treatment of certain types of estrogen-linked cancers , such as breast and ovarian cancer . The experimental drug Z-Endoxifen HCl (endoxifen) is related to tamoxifen, and has been shown to work against similar estrogen-linked cancers . In many cancer patients, tamoxifen is turned into endoxifen by enzymes in the liver; however, not all people have the liver enzymes that can turn tamoxifen into endoxifen, which means that the drug cannot work properly. Taking certain other drugs at the same time as tamoxifen can also keep it from turning into endoxifen. Researchers are interested in determining whether endoxifen tablets are effective in slowing or stopping tumor growth in individuals whose hormone-linke

Description:

Aggressive fibromatosis (AF, also known as desmoid tumor ) is a fibroproliferative neoplasm that typically arises in the abdomen but can develop at other anatomic sites, most commonly in the extremities. These tumors have a relatively high local failure rate after primary treatment using surgery and/or radiotherapy, and although rarely giving rise to distant metastases, can be multifocal and, therefore, not surgically resectable. Moreover, tumor may recur adjacent to the site of surgical resection, underscoring the limitations of surgery in the palliative setting. Therefore, effective medical therapies for AF are needed to maintain quality of life and prolong survival.The goal of the current study was to better define the activity of imatinib in the treatment of AF and to determine the molecular basis for response/nonresponse

Ages:

Description:

Desmoid tumors (DT) are rare tumors (2-4 cases/million/year) that originate from musculoaponeurotic structures. Although they are benign tumors with no metastatic potential, DT are considered as locally aggressive tumors , with local invasiveness and tissue destruction, leading to pain, and disability. Surgery remains the keystone of therapy, but is limited by the anatomical situation of extra-abdominal desmoid (EAD) tumors (chest wall, root members). In patients where surgery is considered, negative-margin resection (R0) is recommended, but this frequently results in cosmetic/functional impairment. Moreover, prognostic impact of R0 resections remains controversial. The outcome after initial surgery depends upon several factors such as age, tumor site, and tumor size as demonstrated by recent data from the French Sarcoma Group. Alternative therapies to DT surgery for front-line or recurrence include NSAID's, anti-estrogens alone or in combination, -interferon, chemotherapy, t

This is a prospective, multicenter observational study under the umbrella of the ISG (Italian Sarcoma Group) evaluating local progression-free survival at 3 years of patients affected by extra-abdominal primary fibromatosis managed with front-line conservative approach and treated only in case of demonstrated progressive disease. All patients included will be placed on wait and see approach and then shifted to treatment in case of documented radiological progressive disease. For patient primarily evaluated for suspected desmoid tumor , a core-needle biopsy (eventually under CT/ultrasound guide) will be obtained for histological diagnosis and mutational analysis of CTNNB1 exon 3 (gene encoding Beta-catenin). If incisional biopsy or surgical procedure has done elsewhere, samples will be requested for histological confirmation and mutational analysis (centralization at the investigators Institution). In case of progression at 3 months, defined as tumor growth documented radiolog

Sexes Eligible for Study: All

Ages:

10 Years to 17 Years   (Child)

Description:

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a leading cause for cancer related mortality in the western world with a lifetime risk of 6%. Etiology is complex, while genetic background significantly affects the risk. Around one third of all genetic disorders as well as most cases of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) and a large proportion of all sporadic CRC cases occur as a result of premature nonsense mutations (creating a stop codon) in an individual's adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene. Nonsense mutations are single-point alterations in the DNA that prematurely halt the protein translation process, producing a shortened, nonfunctional protein. In many of these cases, if the cell can be 'persuaded' to ignore the premature stop codon signal, the resulting protein may be able to ameliorate or stop the disease. Recently, members of the aminoglycoside family of antibiotics have been found to induce ribosomal read-through of nonsense mutations, leading to expression of a full length, functional
