Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Safety and Efficiency of Photodynamic Therapy for Rectal Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE Longterm Outcome of Photodynamic Therapy Compared With Chemotherapy Alone in Patients With Advanced Rectal Cancer
Brief Summary This research is a prospective randomized controlled trial.It aimed to determine longterm outcomes and factors associated with increased survival after photodynamic therapy (PDT) through colonscopy compared with chemotherapy alone in patients presenting with advanced rectal cancer.
Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 2
Phase 3
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Advanced Rectal Cancer
Intervention  ICMJE Procedure: Photodynamic therapy
Each patient to whom PDT was offered underwent a specific, detailed educational process by a dedicated team member(P.B., P.J., or K.E.), after which informed consent was obtained.Porfimer sodium (Photofrin; Axcan Pharma Inc, Quebec, Canada)was used as a photo sensitizing agent, administered intravenously at a dose of 2 mg/kg body weight 48 hours before illumination.A diode laser system (InGaAIP Laser Diode; Diomed Inc, An-dover, MA) with a maximum power output of 2000 mW and a wavelength of 633+-3 nm was used as a light source, delivered through a 3.0-m length fiber having a 2.5-cm-long cylindrical diffuser at its distal end (Pioneer Optics, Windsor Locks, CT).
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • No Intervention: Chemotherapy alone
    Group that be scheduled to undergo chemothrapy only using FOLFOX4 protocol.
  • Experimental: PDT and Chemotherapy
    Group that not only be scheduled to undergo chemothrapy using FOLFOX4 protocol,but also receive colonscopy-assisted PDT.
    Intervention: Procedure: Photodynamic therapy
