Breast Hyperplasia Medical Research Studies

Up-to-date List of Breast Hyperplasia Medical Research Studies

What Research is Being Done?

A clinical study involves research using human volunteers (also called participants) that is intended to add to medical knowledge. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies. Following list includes both interventional and observational studies.

Intervention: Drug: [18F]ISO-1
Outcome Measures: Correlate [18F]ISO-1 uptake with qualitative immunohistochemical staining for the sigma 2 receptor, PGRMC1;   Evaluate the feasibility of using [18F]ISO-1 to image sigma-2 receptor binding in breast cancer;   Evaluate the safety of [18F]ISO-1;   Correlate [18F]ISO-1 uptake with sigma-2 receptor binding studies using [3H]RHM-1;   Correlate [18F]ISO-1 uptake with pathologic assays measuring cellular proliferation rates (e.g. Ki-67);   Correlate [18F]ISO-1 uptake a with multi-gene expression assay, validated to predict recurrence;   Correlate [18F]ISO-1 uptake with outcomes (e.g. time to recurrence, progression free survival and overall survival);   Test the association of [18F]ISO-1 uptake with phenotypic breast cancer subtypes (e.g. HER2+, TN, ER/PR+, etc.)

These studies may lead to new treatments and are adding insight into Breast Hyperplasia etiology and treatment.

A major focus of Breast Hyperplasia research is the development of new drugs and other treatment options. Studies seek to identify new drugs to treat various related disorders and to find safer, more effective doses for medications already being used. Other research is aimed at identifying receptors or drug targets.
