Prevention Clinical Trials for Esophageal Cancer
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for esophageal 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.
Characterizing Chemo-Radiotherapy Treatment-Related Cardiac Changes in Non-metastatic, Non-recurrent Lung and Esophageal Cancer Patients
This trial studies cardiac changes after radiation or chemo-radiation for the treatment of lung or esophageal cancer that has not spread to other places in the body (non-metastatic) or has not come back (non-recurrent). Continuous cardiac monitoring with an implanted device may help to identify cardiac changes that would remain unnoticed, and facilitate the treatment of these early cardiac changes as part of standard care.
