Phase I clinical trials are typically not disease specific and can be searched separately by selecting "I".

Cancer Prevention clinical trials test whether taking certain medicines, vitamins, minerals, or food supplements may lower the risk of a certain type of cancer.

Cancer Control clinical trials test whether certain drugs reduce side effects from chemotherapy and other primary treatments.
