  • Pilot Study of Coil Arrays in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumor Malignancies

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This is a single center pilot study testing the use of novel coil arrays with MR liver imaging. In part A of the study, up to 30 healthy volunteers will be scanned, with iterative adjustment of coil array geometry and design to optimize imaging characterstics. In Part B of the study, 40 patients with advanced solid tumors and at least one liver metastasis measuring> 1.5 cm in diameter on standard anatomic scans will undergo MR liver imaging with the newly designed coil array, with the use of gadolinium contrast. Patients with liver tumors will have the option of undergoing a second MR liver scan during the course of subsequent systemic therapy.

  • Nab-paclitaxel and Gemcitabine vs Gemcitabine Alone as Adjuvant Therapy for Patients With Resected Pancreatic Cancer (the "Apact" Study)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to compare whether there is a delay or prevention of recurrence or death in subjects with surgically removed pancreatic cancer who then take nab-paclitaxel in combination with gemcitabine compared to those who take gemcitabine alone.
