Screening Clinical Trials for Cervical Cancer

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for cervical cancer screening. 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.

Trials 1-9 of 9
  • Multilevel HPV Self-Testing Intervention for the Increase of Cervical Cancer Screening among Women in Appalachia

    This trial studies how well a multilevel human papillomavirus (HPV) self-testing intervention works in increasing cervical cancer screening among women in Appalachia. Most cases of cervical cancer occur among unscreened and underscreened women. A multilevel HPV self-testing intervention may help to improve cervical cancer screening rates.

  • Mailed Self-Sample HPV Testing to Increase Cervical Cancer Screening among Minority / Underserved Women in an Integrated Safety Net Healthcare System

    This clinical trial studies the effect of mail-in HPV self-sampling kits and patient navigation on the participation rate in cervical cancer screenings among minority / underserved women compared to standard scripted phone calls. Information from this study may help researchers better understand how to increase participation in cervical cancer screening.

  • Evidence-Based Approach for the Improvement of Cervical Cancer Screening in Asian American Women

    This clinical trial studies whether adding a self-sampling kit to the standard education and navigation approach improves the cervical cancer screening rate in Asian American women. A self-sampling kit may increase women's willingness to obtain clinic-based screening. Knowledge gained from this study may help researchers learn more about the types of programs that are helpful in improving cervical cancer screening.

  • Biospecimen Collection and Testing for the Prevalence of Anal Dysplasia and Anal Cancer in Patients with Cervical, Vaginal and Vulvar Dysplasia and Cancer

    This trial studies the prevalence of anal dysplasia and anal cancer in patients with cervical, vaginal, and vulvar dysplasia and cancer. Studying samples collected from patients in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about the human papillomavirus and how often anal cancer occurs in patients with cervix, vagina, or vulvar cancer.

  • Project Self in Improving Cervical Cancer Screening Rates in Hispanic and African American Women

    This trial studies if Project Self can improve the rate of cervical cancer screening in Hispanic and African American women living in Houston, Texas. Project Self may help to improve cervical cancer screening rates by providing human papillomavirus (HPV) self-collection kits, education, counseling, and navigation.
    Location: M D Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas

  • Community Health Worker-Led Intervention for the Increase in Uptake of Evidence-Based Screening Services

    This trial studies how well community health worker-led interventions work in increasing the uptake of evidence-based screening services. Comparing home testing led by a community health worker versus clinic testing guided by a community health worker may help researchers find the best way to increase early detection and / or prevention for cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, human immunodeficiency virus, and hepatitis C in Hispanic, Haitian, and African-American people in Hialeah, South Dade, and Little Haiti.

  • Human Papillomavirus Self-collection Kit in Screening High Risk Women for Cervical Cancer

    This randomized clinical trial studies how well a human papillomavirus self-collection kit works in screening high risk women for cervical cancer. At-home self collection kits may help get women screened for cervical cancer.
    Location: UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, Chapel Hill, North Carolina

  • Multilevel Intervention Based on Colorectal Cancer (CRC) and Cervical Cancer Self-screening in Rural, Segregated Areas

    In this study, the investigators will deliver self-sampling human papillomavirus (HPV) tests and fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kits, as well as adapted cancer screening educational materials, by mail to 110 women who are out-of-date for both cervical and colorectal cancer screenings, recruited through federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) in rural, segregated counties of Pennsylvania. The hypothesis is that delivering self-sampling HPV tests and FIT, as well as adapted educational materials, to women in rural, segregated areas could help overcome environment- and person-level barriers and thereby increase cancer screening, reduce geographic cancer disparities, and improve public health.

  • Screening for Cervical Cancer Using Self-Collected Menstrual Blood

    This study investigates the use of menstrual blood in screening for HPV-related cervical cancer in participants with and without a history of high risk HPV infection. Collecting menstrual blood for HPV detection may help doctors find cervical cancer sooner, when it may be easier to treat.
