Proyectos

Esta es una lista de los proyectos que la Fundación Contra el Cáncer financia actualmente.

Investigación clínica: Estimulación del nervio vago como tratamiento potencial para el cáncer

This research aimed to extend the investigation of the role of vagal activity in cancer prognosis.

B-AHEAD-3: a randomized phase-2 trial to determine the effect of a 2 day/week calorie/energy restricted diet and resistance exercise in women receiving chemotherapy for advanced breast cancer

Being overweight or gaining weight due to cancer treatment may have a negative impact on the survival and quality of life of women with breast cancer. Weight loss is therefore recommended in breast cancer patients who are overweight.
A specific diet has been developed that does not only pursue weight loss but also encompasses metabolic changes such as insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.

Investigación clínica: Bicarbonato de sodio

This project evaluated if orally administered Sodium bicarbonate reduces tumor-related pain in patients with malignant solid tumors and hematologic malignancies (Lymphoma and multiple myeloma).

Nitroglycerin as a sensitizer in the treatment of non-small-cell lung cancer: a phase II trial

To study the effect of nitroglycerin in non-small cell lung cancer, 60 patients will be included at MAASTRO clinic.

FLUVABREX, a phase I study assessing the safety of the association of fluvastatin in addition to celecoxib in children with refractory optic-pathway glioma

Optic-pathway gliomas are rare tumors accounting for 1 to 5% of all brain tumors in children. The current treatment strategy in children with optic glioma symptoms is chemotherapy to postpone radiotherapy on the developing brain of a child as much as possible.
In this Phase I study, the safety of a combination of the 2 drugs celecoxib and fluvastatin in children with optic-pathway gliomas will be verified.

Artemisia annua (Ajenjo Dulce)

A project where a specific extract of Artemisia annua was evaluated preclinically as an anti-cancer therapy.

Ketorolac in Breast Cancer Trial

There has been recent interest in the possible impact of the perioperative period on cancer outcomes. Several observations have suggested that physiological changes induced by surgery and anesthesia may have an impact on the growth of tumor cells.

Investigación clínica: Ensayo de fase III aleatorizado sobre el cáncer de recto T3-4

La radioterapia guiada por imagen comparando actualmente a la quimioradioterapia estándar en pacientes con cáncer de recto localmente avanzado.

Fondo Verelst para combatir el cáncer de útero

Evaluación preclínica de terapias dirigidas disponibles y desarrollo de inmunoterapia para el cáncer de endometrio.

Prueba de CLAR de las características de la actividad enzimática del citocromo P450 CYP1A1 y CYP1B1

The hypothesis exists that the enzymes CYP1A1 and CYP1B1 are selectively overexpressed in several human cancers and that they are almost not present in the corresponding healthy tissue. Consequently, these enzymes could become an important tool in cancer therapy. It is on this basic concept the so called “anti-cancer activity” of salvestrols is based. Since the latter product is heavily marketed, the Anticancer Fund decided it was of prime importance to confirm or contradict the underlying assumption.
Today, there is no specific assay to detect the enzymatic activity of either CYP1A1 or CYP1B1 alone.
