Options for Treatment
NCCN Guidelines for Patients diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer.
The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) aims to provide people with cancer and the general public with state-of-the-art cancer treatment information in easy-to-understand language. The NCCN Guidelines for Patients® are meant to help patients with cancer talk with their physicians about the best treatment options for their disease.
NCCN Guidelines for Patients® do not replace the expertise and clinical judgment of the physician.
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. Through cancer clinical trials, researchers find new ways to improve treatments and the quality of life for people with cancer.
Clinical trials are designed to test new ways to treat cancer, detect and diagnose cancer, prevent cancer and manage the symptoms of cancer and side effects of treatment.
At the ECAN Clinical Trials portal, you can find details of how clinical trials work and hear from an Esophageal Cancer patient who has participated in a clinical trial.
The portal also provides an easy-to-navigate platform where you can search for the clinical trials in your geographic area for which you may qualify.
National Cancer Institute provides a variety of information about Clinical Trials, including those that are available and the results of clinical trials already completed.
