Worldwide, it is estimated that 5. One of the most common causes of death in trauma patients is uncontrolled bleeding. At present, standard treatment for severe bleeding involves rapid infusion of red blood cells and blood components e.
Clinical trials are carefully conducted research studies meant to determine the safety and effectiveness of a certain treatment. In short, they are the way to know whether a treatment works. For chordoma patients, some clinical trials may provide an opportunity to receive new, experimental therapies that could be more effective than currently available options.
In this trial, patients are assigned to receive treatment based on the genetic changes found in their tumors through genomic sequencing and other tests. Genomic sequencing is a laboratory method that is used to determine the genetic makeup of cancer cells. Patients whose tumors have genetic changes that match one of the treatments in the trial may receive that treatment, if they meet other eligibility criteria.
Young adulthood age 18 to 35 is a high-risk period for unhealthy weight gain. Few studies have recruited for prevention of weight gain, particularly in young adults. We conducted extensive formative work to inform recruitment methods and message development.
Look for this badge at participating Network organizations and institutions. NCTN provides the infrastructure for NCI-funded treatment and primary advanced imaging trials to improve the lives of people with cancer. NCTN clinical trials help to establish new standards of care, set the stage for approval of new therapies by the Food and Drug Administration, test new treatment approaches, and validate new biomarkers.
