Stage 0 Esophageal Cancer

Current Clinical Trials

Stage 0 squamous esophageal cancer is rarely seen in the United States, but surgery has been used for this stage of cancer.[1,2]

Current Clinical Trials

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with stage 0 esophageal cancer. The list of clinical trials can be further narrowed by location, drug, intervention, and other criteria.

General information about clinical trials is also available from the NCI Web site.
