Cancer Prevention Studies

In addition to clinical trials that examine the effects of drugs, surgery, radiation, and/or alternative therapies in the treatment of active cancer, other studies find ways to prevent cancer. These trials include the testing of new screening methods, comparisons between existing methods, and studies of adjuvant therapies such as phytochemicals. Other studies are performed, often in conjunction with clinical treatment trials, to examine the issues of quality of life during and after treatment. As more and more people become cancer survivors, cancer can in many cases be viewed as a chronic rather than terminal disease. Efforts are being made to understand the challenges faced by cancer survivors and to find strategies for overcoming them.
