Clinical Trials Using Lugol's Solution

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Lugol's Solution. 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.

Trial 1 of 1
  • High Resolution Microendoscopy with Proflavine Hemisulfate in Diagnosing Squamous Cell Cancer of the Esophagus in Participants Undergoing Standard Chromoendoscopy

    This phase II trial studies how well high resolution microendoscopy with proflavine hemisulfate works in diagnosing squamous cell cancer of the esophagus in participants undergoing standard chromoendoscopy. Standard chromoendoscopy is a procedure which helps doctors look at the inside of the esophagus using Lugol's solution as a dye or stain for abnormal areas that might be disease. High resolution microendoscopy using proflavine hemisulfate as a dye is similar, but may provide better images. It is not yet known whether high resolution microendoscopy with proflavine hemisulfate is better in diagnosing participants with squamous cell cancer of the esophagus.
