|Help defeat breast cancer; join UND research study|
Women who would like to be part of new studies at the medical school aimed at determining the most effective means of prevention and early detection of cancer in the breast are invited to contact the school's Office of Research. The breast is the leading site of cancer development in North Dakota and Minnesota women, said Edward Sauter, associate dean for research and program development. He and his team of clinical researchers are seeking volunteers for several breast cancer prevention studies using herbal/botanical interventions to prevent the disease, and noninvasive approaches to early breast cancer detection.
All studies are free of charge and vary in length, with some requiring as little as one visit and others either a four-or 12-week time commitment. Volunteers who live in, or within traveling distance of, Grand Forks and Fargo are especially invited to participate.
Volunteers who take part in this project can make a difference for women of all ages, Sauter said.
