Study for Women at Increased Risk of Developing Breast Cancer

This study will create a system to assess an individual’s risk of breast cancer

This study will create a system to assess an individual’s risk of breast cancer based on random sampling of normal breast tissue as well as determine new and help understand previously identified risk biomarkers.

Upright MRI for Prostate Cancer Screening

This study will compare the effectiveness of an upright magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) compared to prostate specific antigen (PSA) and current MRI imaging for prostate cancer screening.

Helping Latinas Understand Their Risk for Breast Cancer and Get Breast Cancer Care

Latinas with a high risk of breast cancer

This study will teach Latinas with a high risk of breast cancer about how diet, exercise, ethnicity, genetics and screening and prevention guidelines may impact their likelihood for developing breast cancer.

Men at High Genetic Risk for Prostate Cancer

Prostate screening with MRI for men with Lynch syndrome (MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2, EPCAM) or a BRCA1, BRCA2, HOXB13, ATM, NBN, TP53, BRIP1, CHEK2, PALB2, RAD51C, RAD51D, or other mutation

The National Institutes of Health has a clinical trial for men at high genetic risk for prostate cancer. This is trial is for men without prostate cancer, ages 30 to 75, who have tested positive for Lynch syndrome (MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2, EPCAM) or BRCA1, BRCA2, HOXB13, ATM, NBN, TP53, BRIP1, CHEK2, PALB2, RAD51C, RAD51D, or FANC (FANCA, FANCB, FANCC, FANCD2, FANCE, FANCF, FANCG, FANCI, FANCL, and FANCM). The trial involves screening MRI of the prostate every two years and biopsy of the prostate if the MRI is abnormal. There is no cost for travel or study-related tests. 

A New Risk Measurement Tool for Those at High Risk for Ovarian Cancer

This study is using a new type of genetic test to measure ovarian cancer risk

This study is using a new type of genetic test to measure ovarian cancer risk in women who have inherited genetic mutations that increase their risk for ovarian cancer or women who have an ovarian cyst or other non-cancerous masses (adnexal mass).

Pancreatic Cancer Screening Study (CAPS5)

Screening study for people at high risk for pancreatic cancer

CAPS5 is a study looking at screening for early cancer in people with an elevated lifetime risk of developing pancreatic cancer. The goal is to study biomarkers derived from images and tissue samples (blood, pancreas fluid, duodenal fluid) for the early detection of pancreatic cancer and precancerous lesions.


Prostate Cancer Genetic Risk Evaluation and Screening Study (PROGRESS)

People at high risk for prostate cancer due to an inherited mutation

This study will look at how enhanced prostate cancer screening using MRI will improve early detection rates and further understanding of how inherited mutations can lead to development of prostate cancer.

Blood Markers of Early Pancreas Cancer

Screening for people with family history of pancreas cancer or an inherited mutation linked to pancreatic cancer risk.

The purpose of this study is to try to find markers of early pancreatic cancer for screening for individuals at higher-than-average risk, expedite the diagnosis in individuals with symptoms, and substantially improve an individual's chance of surviving the disease.

Developing a Test for the Detection of Ovarian Cancer


The purpose of this study is to develop a test for early detection of ovarian cancer. Two patient populations are included in this study: women scheduled for surgery or testing for suspected but undiagnosed ovarian/fallopian tube cancer, and women with a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation who are scheduled for a risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy. The study will examine DNA from a washing of the uterus (womb) and proteins found in the blood to see if they can detect ovarian cancer.

Preliminary Evaluation of Screening for Pancreatic Cancer in Patients with an Inherited Genetic Risk Due to a BRCA1, BRCA2, PALB2 or ATM Mutation


Improved screening for pancreatic cancer in high-risk groups, such as people with an inherited BRCA1, BRCA2, ATM, or PALB2 mutation, may help find cancer early and improve survival rates. People enrolled in this study will undergo screening using endoscopic ultrasound or MRI of the abdomen.

Research Study to Help Improve Family Communication About Inherited Mutations


The Ohio State University and FORCE want to understand if a family communication guide for people with BRCA mutations is helpful and if it’s also useful to have a video that you can text or email to family members that explains your BRCA mutation. We are currently looking for people between the ages of 18-80 who have mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2, have an active email address, and an internet capable device like a computer, tablet, or smartphone.  Participants will be asked to complete a total of 3 surveys.  Participants will be randomly assigned to either receive just the communication guide or the guide plus the sharable.  Each survey will take 10-15 minutes (the study could take up to 1.5 hours to complete depending on how much time you spend reviewing the study materials). 

You can get more information or ask to participate in the study by sending an email to: [email protected].

Validating a Blood Test for Early Ovarian Cancer Detection in High-risk Women and Families: MicroRNA Detection Study (MiDE)

Screening study for women with a BRCA1, BRCA2, BRIP1, PALB2, RAD51C, RAD51D, PMS2, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, or EPCAM mutation

The goal of MiDe is to develop a clinical diagnostic test to detect early onset ovarian cancer, as currently, there are no good screening or early detection tests available. Participants can be expected to provide up to 4 tubes of blood every 6 months for up to 5 years. We can collect these samples through mobile phlebotomy all around the US. 

A Pancreatic Cancer Screening Study for High Risk Individuals


The purpose of this study is to screen and detect pancreatic cancer and precancer in people with either a strong family history of pancreatic cancer, or an inherited mutation associated with pancreatic cancer risk.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) will be used to screen for early stage pancreatic cancer. Participants will also be asked to donate a blood sample at specific intervals for the creation of a blood bank necessary for the development of a blood-based screening test for pancreatic cancer. 

RANKL Inhibition With Denosumab on Mammographic Density in Premenopausal Women With Dense Breasts (TRIDENT)


The purpose of this study is to evaluate if denosumab can reduce the breast density of premenopausal women who have dense breasts. Denosumab is an FDA-approved injectable medication that is used to treat osteoporosis and to prevent fractures in cancer patients with bone metastases. This study could help us identify novel ways to prevent breast cancer in younger women.

Genomic Services Research Program Study for People with Unexpected Genetic Results


A new study is recruiting people who received unexpected genetic test results about their cancer risk after having genetic testing done for some other reason.

This is a study of people with "secondary results” from genetic testing. Secondary results are unexpected. They are not related to the reason the person had the genetic test but are shared because they may be very important to the person’s health. Most secondary results have to do with high risks for health problems that can be treated or prevented. Many of these results are related to cancer risk. If you think you have received a secondary result, you may be eligible to join this study.

Pancreatic Cancer Early Detection Program


This is a study looking at esophageal ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as a screening for pancreatic cancer in high risk individuals. 

The WISDOM Study: Women Informed to Screen Depending on Measures of risk


The goal of the Wisdom Study is to determine if breast cancer screening can be made better by personalizing each woman’s mammogram schedule, compared to the current one-size-fits-all, annual approach. The Wisdom Study is designed to end the confusion about when to start and how often to have a mammogram. For more information, visit the WISDOM Study website
