Abstract for Grants

The Clinical Protocol and Data Management Core (CPDMC) is a collaborative integrated unit staffed by professionals with expertise in protocol data management and clinical research informatics, to provide centralized infrastructure and support for the effective efficient conduct of clinical research. Working closely with the Biostatistics Core, this team blends technical and scientific expertise to provide City of Hope investigators with world-class research support and informatics solutions for clinical trials, observational studies, and outcomes research. The CPDMC offers comprehensive services to COH Cancer Center members including: protocol document management, electronic data capture, standardized clinical research staff training and education, honest broker process for accessing tissue samples, study recruitment tracking, patient safety decision support tools, data quality assurance and monitoring, multi-site coordination, and customized and routine reports.
 
The CPDMC provides input into developing protocols with respect to practicality and appropriateness of protocol management, study calendar, and data collection issues. Data Quality Monitors ensure that study research staff are fully trained in protocol management, data collection, and overall study conduct according to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and COH policies. The CPDMC database monitors ensure that protocol and patient registration is carried out according to NCI guidelines.
 
Key informatics services provided include: Clinical Trial Management Systems to manage planning, execution, and reporting of clinical research studies; Electronic Data Capture to provide electronic case report forms; and Clinical Research Decision Support to translate data into scientific decisions. Our emerging work on Translational Research Informatics includes implementation of the enterprise data warehouse, i2b2 open source system for cohort selection for tissue correlative studies, along with Electronic Lab Notebook and Laboratory Information Management Systems.
 
For all these functions we use international architectural and vocabulary standards and project management methodologies to deliver clinical and translational informatics applications. In summary, the CPDMC delivers resources, education, and information management processes to establish best practices in accordance with FDA, GCP, regulatory requirements such as 21CFR Part 11, and international data standards such as HL7, SNOMED, and LOINC.

NEWS & UPDATES
  • Ryan Chavira was a senior in high school when she began feeling sluggish, fatigued and, well, “down.” Trips to the doctor ended in “you’re fine” pronouncements; blood tests results showed nothing of real concern. But Chavira’s grandmother had passed away from ovarian cancer when she was in eig...
  • Brain tumors are exceptionally difficult to treat. They can be removed surgically, but individual cancer cells may have already spread elsewhere in the brain and can escape the effects of both radiation and chemotherapy. To prevent tumors from recurring, doctors need a way to find and stop those invasive cancer...
  • Breast cancer risk is personal; breast cancer risk assessment should be, too. To that end, City of Hope researchers have developed a starting point to help women (and their doctors) with a family history of the disease begin that risk assessment process. The result is an iPhone app, called BRISK, for Breast Can...
  • When it comes to breast cancer, women aren’t limited to getting screened and, if diagnosed, making appropriate treatment choices. They can also take a proactive stance in the fight against breast cancer by understanding key risk factors and practicing lifestyle habits that can help reduce their own breast...
  • Cancers of the blood and immune system are considered to be among the most difficult-to-treat cancers. A world leader in the treatment of blood cancers, City of Hope is now launching an institute specifically focused on treating people with lymphoma, leukemia and myeloma, as well as other serious blood and bone...
  • Genetics, genes, genome, genetic risk … Such terms are becoming increasingly familiar to even nonresearchers as studies and information about the human make-up become more extensive and more critical. At City of Hope, these words have long been part of our vocabulary. Researchers and physicians are studyi...
  • Mammograms are currently the best method to detect breast cancer early, when it’s easier to treat and before it’s big enough to feel or cause symptoms. But recent mammogram screening guidelines may have left some women confused about when to undergo annual testing. Here Lusi Tumyan, M.D., chief of t...
  • Although chemotherapy can be effective in treating cancer, it can also exact a heavy toll on a patient’s health. One impressive alternative researchers have found is in the form of a vaccine. A type of immunotherapy, one part of the vaccine primes the body to react strongly against a tumor; the second part dire...
  • The breast cancer statistic is attention-getting: One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime. That doesn’t mean that, if you’re one of eight women at a dinner table, one of you is fated to have breast cancer (read more on that breast cancer statistic), but it does mean that the ...
  • Rob Darakjian was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at just 19 years old. He began chemotherapy and was in and out of the hospital for four months. After his fourth round of treatment, he received a bone marrow transplantation from an anonymous donor. Today, he’s cancer free. In his first post, ...
  • Advanced age tops the list among breast cancer risk factor for women. Not far behind is family history and genetics. Two City of Hope researchers delving deep into these issues recently received important grants to advance their studies. Arti Hurria, M.D., director of the Cancer and Aging Research Program, and ...
  • City of Hope is extending the reach of its lifesaving mission well beyond U.S. borders. To that end, three distinguished City of Hope leaders visited China earlier this year to lay the foundation for the institution’s new International Medicine Program. The program is part of City of Hope’s strategi...
  • A hallmark of cancer is that it doesn’t always limit itself to a primary location. It spreads. Breast cancer and lung cancer in particular are prone to spread, or metastasize, to the brain. Often the brain metastasis isn’t discovered until years after the initial diagnosis, just when patients were beginning to ...
  • Blueberries, cinnamon, baikal scullcap, grape seed extract (and grape skin extract), mushrooms, barberry, pomegranates … all contain compounds with the potential to treat, or prevent, cancer. Scientists at City of Hope have found tantalizing evidence of this potential and are determined to explore it to t...
  • Most women who are treated for breast cancer with a mastectomy do not choose to undergo reconstructive surgery. The reasons for this, according to a recent JAMA Surgery study, vary. Nearly half say they do not want any additional surgery, while nearly 34 percent say breast cancer reconstruction simply isn’t imp...
