Clinical Trials Using Typhoid Vaccine
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Typhoid Vaccine. 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.
Typhoid Vaccine in Testing Response to Immune Stress in Patients With Stage I-IIIA Breast Cancer Who Received Chemotherapy
This randomized clinical trial uses a typhoid vaccine to cause an immune response in patients with stage I-IIIA breast cancer who received chemotherapy and studies whether patients' fitness levels affect how well their bodies handle a challenge to their immune system. A vaccine is a substance or group of substances meant to cause the immune system to respond to a tumor or to microorganisms such as bacteria or viruses. Immune responses may cause excess inflammation in the body and behavioral changes, such as depression, fatigue, pain, and problems with thinking and reasoning. Studying immune responses in patients with breast cancer who have undergone chemotherapy may help doctors learn whether physical fitness can protect the body from effects of immune system stress and whether it may be able to reduce health problems in patients with breast cancer who have undergone chemotherapy.
