Prevention Clinical Trials for Rectal Cancer
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for rectal 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.
Eflornithine and / or Sulindac in Preventing Recurrence of High-Risk Adenomas and Second Primary Disease in Patients with Stage 0-III Colon or Rectal Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies how well eflornithine works compared to sulindac in preventing the return of the disease (recurrence) of high-risk adenomas and second primary disease in patients with stage 0-III colon or rectal cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as eflornithine and sulindac, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.

A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Rivaroxaban Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) Prophylaxis in Ambulatory Cancer Participants
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that rivaroxaban is superior to placebo for reducing the risk of the primary composite outcome as defined by objectively confirmed symptomatic lower extremity proximal deep vein thrombosis (DVT), asymptomatic lower extremity proximal DVT, symptomatic upper extremity DVT, symptomatic non-fatal pulmonary embolism (PE), incidental PE, and venous thromboembolism (VTE)-related death in ambulatory adult participants with various cancer types receiving systemic cancer therapy who are at high risk of developing a VTE.

Epigallocatechin Gallate in Treating Patients with Colorectal Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies how well epigallocatechin gallate works in treating patients with colorectal cancer that can be removed by surgery. Epigallocatechin gallate is a dietary supplement that may help prevent colorectal cancer.
