|Volunteers sought for breast health study|
We are recruiting women who are interested in participating in a study to develop methods to detect breast cancer early.
The purpose of the study is to identify normal and tumor specific proteins of breast fluid obtained from nipple aspiration that may be useful in the future to detect early breast cancer. The study is recruiting women, 35 years or older, who have no known breast disease. The study is also recruiting women, 35 years or older who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or a lump that may be breast cancer, or had mammography that is suggestive of breast cancer.
Women must be able to read and understand English, not have been pregnant for at least two years, not planning a pregnancy, and who have not breastfed for two years. To participate, either with or without a breast cancer diagnosis, women must be otherwise healthy. The study requires one to two clinic visits in Grand Forks. Parking or taxi/bus voucher provided. On completion of the study, a $50 payment will be mailed.
