Clinical Trials Using Paclitaxel Albumin-Stabilized Nanoparticle Formulation
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Paclitaxel Albumin-Stabilized Nanoparticle Formulation. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Telotristat Ethyl in Promoting Weight Stability in Patients with Recurrent Advanced Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma
This phase II trial studies how well telotristat ethyl works in promoting weight stability in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma that has come back and spread to other places in the body. Telotristat ethyl may decrease bowel movements which may make patients gain weight. Stabilizing weight may help patients tolerate chemotherapy better and improve longevity.

Nab-Paclitaxel and Radiation Therapy in Improving and Maintaining Ambulation in Cancer Patients with Spinal Cord Compression
This phase II trial studies how well nab-paclitaxel and radiation therapy work in improving and maintaining ambulation in cancer patients with spinal cord compression. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as nab-paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving nab-paclitaxel and radiation therapy may work better in treating epidural spinal cord compression in cancer patients.
