An Observational Study of Treatment Patterns and Outcomes in Patients with Advanced Basal Cell Carcinoma or Basal Cell Carcinoma Nevus Syndrome

Protocol
13-221
Full Title
A Prospective Observational Study of Treatment Patterns and Effectiveness and Safety Outcomes in Advanced Basal Cell Carcinoma and Basal Cell Carcinoma Nevus Syndrome Patients
Purpose

Basal cell carcinoma is a type of skin cancer. In this study, researchers are studying the different types of treatments received by patients with advanced basal cell carcinoma (cancer which has spread further into the skin or to other organs) or basal cell carcinoma nevus syndrome (a genetic condition that puts people at a higher risk of skin cancer). They want to see which treatments patients receive, and how safe and effective these treatments are.

Participants in this study will receive regular medical care; they will not receive an investigational treatment. Researchers will gather information about these therapies as well as patients’ lifestyle factors, other medical conditions, other medications they may be taking, and their day-to-day activities.

Eligibility

To be eligible for this study, patients must meet several criteria, including but not limited to the following:

  • Patients must have advanced basal cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma nevus syndrome.
  • Patients must be age 18 or older.
