- Prevention Trials
Work with high risk individuals to test interventions that might reduce risk of developing cancer. These interventions might include drugs or lifestyle changes. People in these studies are often followed for several years to determine the long-term effects on prevention.
- Screening Trials
Aim to determine the most effective method and frequency for screening the general public in order to better detect cancer, especially in the early stages. These studies also help uncover if finding cancer before it causes symptoms improves chances of survival. These trials involve people who do not have any symptoms of cancer.
- Diagnostic Trials
Study procedures that could be used to identify cancer more accurately and at an earlier stage. Diagnostic trials usually include people who have signs or symptoms of cancer.
- Treatment Trials
Conducted with people who have cancer. They are designed in phases to answer specific questions about, and evaluate the effectiveness of, a new treatment or a new way of using a standard treatment. These clinical trials test many types of cancer treatments, including new drugs, vaccines, approaches to surgery or radiation therapy and combinations of treatments.
- Supportive Care Trials
Test new options for dealing with side effects of cancer and treatment. These options might include medicines to address chemo side effects, nutritional interventions or psychosocial options such as support groups or one-on-one support. These trials may be aimed at patients or caregivers needing help in coping with the disease.
