Remote Study Seeks Volunteers

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a condition that can cause changes in skin color and growth of tumors (called plexiform neurofibromas or PNs) under the skin. PNs can form anywhere in the body and based on their size or location, the tumors can become visible and cause unwelcome changes in appearance. NCI is conducting a new study to see if NF1 patients who are treated with Selumetinib have a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their tumors. 

Researchers at NCI are looking for volunteers to help rate changes in the appearance of PN tumors viewed in patient photos before and after treatment. This is a remote study using a smartphone or computer to complete an online questionnaire in one or two 1-hour sessions to review photographs of patients with or without treatment and score the appearance of visible tumors.
