18 Coming Attractions PREDICT study: using biomarkers to detect and identify cardiotoxicity in patients receiving anthracyclines –Concept approved, protocol being submitted –Cardiology & Oncology Partnership

19 Coming Attractions Trimethoprim-EDTA to prevent CVC-catheter occlusions (Raad) –We have previously presented information concerning the protocol “Prospective, Randomized Trial Comparing Heparin and Minocycline-EDTA Flush for the Prevention of Catheter-Related Infections and Occlusions.” The protocol was NCI-approved. Now we will be modifying this protocol to compare trimethroprin-EDTA in 25% ethanol with saline. We will resubmit to the NCI. Great Lakes Pharmaceuticals (GLP), the sponsor, is preparing to manufacture the supply kits that will be used during the conduct of this trial Questions for you –Which catheters do you use? –Heparin vs. saline for flush? Lock? –Simultaneous (peripheral and CVC) drawn blood cultures—is it feasible for you?

20 Coming Attractions Oncologist-Assisted Home Exercise Program for Advanced Colon Cancer Patients (Basen- Engquist) –Enrollment plan is for the CCOPs –R21-funded just this week!!
