  • A Study of SGN-STNV in Advanced Solid Tumors

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This trial will look at a drug called SGN-STNV to find out whether it is safe for patients with solid tumors. It will study SGN-STNV to find out what its side effects are. A side effect is anything the drug does besides treating cancer. It will also study how well SGN-STNV works to treat solid tumors. The study will have two parts. Part A of the study will find out how much SGN-STNV should be given to patients. Part B will use the dose found in Part A to find out how safe SGN-STNV is and if it works to treat certain types of solid tumors.

  • Increasing Engagement With Messages Regarding CRC Screening Among Adults Aged 45-49

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    In May of 2021, the United States Preventive Service Task Force (USPSTF) updated their colorectal cancer (CRC) screening guidelines by recommending screening at an earlier age for average-risk adults starting at the age of 45 years old (Grade B recommendation). This is in addition to their Grade A recommendations of continuing to screen average-risk adults ages 50-75 years old. As the investigators health system aims to screen the newly eligible population of average-risk patients between the ages of 45-49, the investigators proposed randomized controlled trial is aimed to determine the most effective patient outreach approach to increase patients' engagement with messages regarding CRC screening and screening uptake within this specific age-group.

  • The Impact of Choice on Colorectal Cancer Screening

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    In May of 2021, the United States Preventive Service Task Force (USPSTF) updated their colorectal cancer (CRC) screening guidelines by recommending screening at an earlier age for average-risk adults starting at the age of 45 years old (Grade B recommendation). This is in addition to their Grade A recommendations of continuing to screen average-risk adults ages 50-75 years old. UCLA Health previously implemented a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) outreach program wherein FIT kits are mailed to average-risk patients overdue for CRC screening twice annually to promote screening uptake. As the investigators health system aims to screen the newly eligible population of average-risk patients between the ages of 45-49, the investigators proposed randomized controlled trial is aimed to determine the most effective patient outreach approach to maximize screening uptake within this age-group.

  • Improving Colonoscopy Quality for Colorectal Cancer Screening in the National VA Healthcare System

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    High quality screening colonoscopy is critical for colorectal cancer (CRC) prevention in Veterans. There is significant variability in colonoscopy quality in VA that is directly linked to differences in CRC incidence and death. The investigators developed the VA Endoscopy Quality Improvement Program (VA-EQuIP) that the National GI program office will implement using centralized quality measurement and reporting for adenoma detection rates (ADR), bi-annual audit and feedback with provider benchmarking to local and national performance, and collaborative learning to support colonoscopy quality improvement. Using a cluster randomized controlled trial, the investigators will study the implementation of VA-EQuIP and determine the efficacy of its intervention on adenoma detection rates, which are directly linked to CRC incidence and death.
