Screening Clinical Trials for Esophageal Cancer
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for esophageal 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.
Swallowable Sponge Cell Sampling Device and Next Generation Sequencing in Detecting Esophageal Cancer in Patients with Low or High Grade Dysplasia, Barrett Esophagus, or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
This pilot clinical trial studies how well a swallowable sponge cell sampling device and next generation sequencing work in detecting esophageal cancer in patients with low or high grade dysplasia, Barrett esophagus, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. Checking biomarkers in abnormal esophageal cells using a swallowable sponge cell sampling device and next generation sequencing may improve diagnosis and treatment of esophageal cancer.
