Prevention Clinical Trials for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for non-melanoma skin 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.
UV Dosimetry Feedback and Behavioral Counseling in Reducing Sun Exposure in Participants with Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
This trial studies how well ultraviolet radiation (UV) dosimetry feedback and behavioral counseling works in reducing sun exposure in participants with non-melanoma skin cancer. Non-melanoma skin cancers (such as basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma) are related to skin damage caused by sunlight UV exposure. A dosimeter is a device that measures the type and amount of ultraviolet light a participant is exposed to during daily activities. Behavioral interventions, including counseling, use techniques to help participants change the way they react to environmental triggers that may cause a negative reaction. UV dosimetry feedback and behavioral counseling may help participants reduce sun exposure and may also help doctors develop better strategies to protect the public from developing skin cancer.
