Closed Clinical Trials
Current knowledge about aspirin's potential role in cancer prevention comes from a range of clinical trials that are now completed and closed to enrollment. The following link provides a list of such trials drawn from PDQ®, the clinical trials database of the National Cancer Institute.
The list includes not only prevention trials, but also studies of what affect aspirin might have on such cancer-related issues as blood clotting and pain. Findings from these trials may or may not have been published in the medical literature. Aspirin's chemical name is acetylsalicyclic acid.
