ClinicalTrials.gov

Below, you can find a listing of all open Phase III trials concerning cancer retrieved by www.clinicaltrials.gov, which is a register of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted worldwide. This information is automatically imported from www.clinicaltrials.gov.
Always discuss the possibility of participating in a clinical trial with your treating doctor. You can search this list by entering a type of cancer, by selecting a specific country, by entering a keyword or the NCT code of the trial you are looking for. By combining search options, you will get more refined results. For instance, as a German breast cancer patient, you can enter breast cancer as a type of cancer and search for clinical trials in Germany. Within a selected trial, you can look for other locations, should you be interested in clinical trials in another country. Your selected trial will have a link to the original page on clinicaltrials.gov which you should consult to get more information about the trial. The Anticancer Fund weekly selects the clinical trials available for cancer. This section of the website is only available in English.

We hypothesize through this randomized, placebo-controlled adjuvant study, that Aspirin in patients with dukes C or high risk dukes B colorectal cancer (ASCOLT) can improve survival in this patient population over placebo control. If indeed found to be beneficial, because aspirin is cheap and easy to administer, it will positively impact the lives of many individuals in Asia and globally. STUDY OBJECTIVE To assess the effectiveness of Aspirin against...
<p>Patients with diagnosis of HPIN were enrolled. Patients were randomized into two groups: dutasteride treatment group and watchful waiting strategy group. According to the study protocol the subjects would undergo 10 core biopsies after 6, 12, 24, and 36 months after randomization. There are assessed the rate of prostate cancer at repeated transrectal ultrasound guided biopsies and the effect of 5 alfa reductase inhibitor (dutasteride) on prevention of prostate cancer development for...
<p>RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. It is not yet known which schedule of intensity-modulated radiation therapy is more effective in treating patients with prostate cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying the side effects of three schedules of intensity-modulated radiation therapy and compares how well they work in treating patients...
<p>RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy after surgery may kill any tumor cells that remain after surgery. It is not yet known whether intensity-modulated radiation therapy is more effective than standard radiation therapy in treating patients with early-stage breast cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is comparing radiation therapy regimens in treating women with early-stage breast cancer who have undergone breast-...
RATIONALE: Screening may help doctors find colorectal cancer sooner, when it may be easier to treat. Finding out what affects a patient's decision to undergo screening tests may help increase the number of patients who undergo regular screening for cancer. It is not yet known whether personalized invitations to undergo colorectal cancer screening are more effective than standard screening reminders. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying ways to...
Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide, carboplatin and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known which radiation therapy regimen is more effective when given together with chemotherapy in treating patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer. This randomized phase III trial is...
RATIONALE: Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Androgen deprivation therapy may stop the adrenal glands from making androgens. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying how well androgen deprivation therapy works in treating patients with prostate cancer.
RATIONALE: Wedge resection or segmentectomy may be less invasive types of surgery than lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer and may have fewer side effects and improve recovery. It is not yet known whether wedge resection or segmentectomy are more effective than lobectomy in treating stage IA non-small cell lung cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying different types of surgery to compare how well they work in treating patients with stage...
This randomized phase III trial studies whether changes in diet and physical activity can increase the length of survival without the return of cancer (progression-free survival) compared with usual care in patients with previously treated stage II, III, or IV ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer. A healthy diet and physical activity program and counseling may help patients make healthier lifestyle choices. It is not yet known whether changes in...
