Information about actively enrolling, ongoing, and completed clinical trials of cancer prevention, early detection, and supportive care, including phase I, II, and III agent and action trials and clinical trials management.
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.
Monograph on Engaging Older Adults in Clinical Trials
A JNCI monograph on Engaging Older Adults in Cancer Clinical Trials Conducted in the National Cancer Institute Clinical Trials Network. The articles, developed through working groups formed for an NCI workshop held in April 2021 to address this issue, provide recommendations and new and innovative solutions to common barriers to accrual.
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 across the United States.
