We’re committed to our mission of finding new treatments that may help improve the lives of people with cancer. We perform these trials to see if they can help prevent, find, or treat cancer.

Cancer of the oesophagus is sometimes called oesophageal carcinoma. It begins growth in the mucosa layer of the oesophagus. When it spreads, it passes through the submucosa and muscle layer.

Gastroeosophageal junction carcinoma is a cancer that starts where the oesophagus connects to the stomach.

The most common types of oesophageal cancer are adenocarcinoma and squamous cell.

There is a lot to consider when deciding whether to participate in a clinical trial. Any clinical trial includes risks which the study doctor will review with you. Make sure you understand the risks before participating.
