Clinic seeks volunteers in cervical cancer study

Citizen Staff Writer

The Arizona Cancer Center is looking for women to participate in a study that looks at whether a green tea extract may help prevent cervical cancer.

The study will determine whether Polyphenon E affects cancer-related biomarkers in blood or cervical tissue or both in certain types of women.

The study is recruiting women who already have had a diagnosis of persistent cervical dysplasia/CIN1, human papillomavirus or LSIL and low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions for at least the last 6 to 12 months. Eligible participants will take either 800 milligram capsules of Polyphenon E or a matched placebo for four months.

For additional study-related information, contact Dr. Francisco Garcia at 626-8539 or Bonnie Weible at 318-7178.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
