What Types of Studies are Available?

Breast Cancer Treatment

These trials are investigating cancer treatments that researchers think may be more effective or have fewer side effects, such as:
  • Neoadjuvant treatment (drugs given before surgery).
  • Surgical techniques that may reduce scarring.
  • Radiation procedures that take less time or treat a smaller area of breast tissue.
  • Biological therapies that target proteins that help tumors grow.
  • Chemotherapy regimens that include new drugs or new drug combinations.
  • Hormone therapies for tumors fueled by estrogen.
