Below are current clinical trials.2 studies in Invasive lobular carcinoma
(open studies only).
Filter this list of studies by location, status and more.
The Primary Aim of this study is to quantify BDTC in breast cancer patients at different stages of cancer. As part of this aim we will establish the proliferation status of the tumor cells. We will in parallel examine CTC to determine the correlation between BDTC and CTC. The Second Aim is to determine role of tumor associated immune responses in maintaining tumor dormancy. Knowledge gained will provide the rationale for an in depth study of breast cancer tumor dormancy and immune response. Ultimately, the information gained will help us to design of immune intervention strategies that prevent cancer recurrence.
This study is being done to create a list of patients having breast surgery to improve our ability to diagnose and treat breast diseases. Specifically, we will collect:
- Information from questionnaires
- Information from medical records
- Tissue samples (only from patients who have surgery at Mayo Clinic)
