Using orally administered zinc to patients already diagnosed with the pre-cancerous condition, Barrett's Esophagus, this study is asking two questions:
- can this zinc administration cause molecular-level changes in the Barrett's tissue?
- are the changes measured indicative of chemopreventive action by zinc regarding cancer progression?
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
