Prevention Clinical Trials for Breast Cancer
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for breast cancer prevention. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Tamoxifen Citrate or Afimoxifene in Treating Patients with Estrogen Receptor Positive Breast Cancer
This randomized phase IIB trial studies how well tamoxifen or afimoxifene works in treating patients with estrogen receptor positive breast cancer. Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using tamoxifen citrate or afimoxifene may fight breast cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells.
