Thyroid Gland Nodule clinical trials at UC Cancer
1 research study open to eligible people
Development of Liquid Biopsy Technologies for Noninvasive Cancer Diagnostics in Patients With Suspicious Thyroid Nodules or Thyroid Cancer
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This study is being done to help researchers learn more about and successfully diagnose cancer using blood samples and tissue samples from surgeries in patients with suspicious thyroid nodules or thyroid cancer. Diagnosing cancer in this way, as opposed to biopsies, may be less invasive to the patient. Analyzing blood and tissues samples may also help researchers to differentiate non-cancerous tumors from thyroid cancer and detect high-risk mutations to guide treatment.
