Why I Joined a Clinical Trial

Living through my sister’s heroic battle with breast cancer and being a woman at high risk, I knew there had to be a better way than “watch and wait”. Prevention became my passion; BCPT my clinical trial to find answers to prevent this disease for my young nieces and all women. Together, through clinical trials, we can prevent breast cancer.

Type(s) of Trial: Prevention

Trial Link(s): The Breast Cancer Prevention Trial, where tamoxifen was found to reduce breast cancer risk by half compared to a placebo.

Researchers Search the Genome for Clues to Early Age Onset Cancers in Racial/Ethnic Minorities

While researchers have identified some of the genetic changes that lead to cancer development, a key knowledge gap remains: finding the genetic changes that drive the development of cancers that arise at an earlier age than average (early onset) in racially and ethnically diverse populations.

New Onset Diabetes Cohort Sought to Unravel Complexities of Pancreatic Cancer Development

The National Cancer Institute is leading a project to create a cohort of people who are newly diagnosed with diabetes in the hopes that this group, who are at increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer, provide the clues in their blood and tissues to unravel some of the unknowns about this highly fatal cancer. The New Onset Diabetes Study (NOD) will include 10,000 people ages 50 to 85...

TMIST Ramps Up to Illuminate Breast Cancer Screening

For the inaugural post of the Cancer Prevention Science blog, the focus is on the ongoing critical study of 2-D vs. 3-D mammography for breast cancer screening known as TMIST. Next time, Deborah Winn, Ph.D., acting director of the Division of Cancer Prevention, will answer questions about this research blog, and about the future of cancer prevention science....
