|Clinical trials aim to detect and prevent breast cancer|
Women who would like to be part of the UND clinical trials aimed at determining the most effective means of prevention and early detection of breast cancer are invited to contact the medical school’s Department of Surgery by contacting Julie Dahlman at 777-4862 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Rebecca Lessard, RN, BSN at 701-777-6368 or email@example.com. All studies are free of charge and vary in length, with some requiring as little as one visit and others requiring either a four- or twelve-week time commitment. Volunteers who live in or near Grand Forks and Fargo are especially encouraged to participate.
"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 for early breast cancer detection. "Volunteers who take part in this project can make a difference for women of all ages," Sauter said.
