Oral Curcumin for Radiation Dermatitis in Breast Cancer Patients

is now open and is available on this website.  You can now download all documents and submit to your IRBs. To download, you must first log in, click on Active Protocols on the Main Menu, then click on Curcumin. The last bullet under Supporting Documents is a PDF of the protcol, the Investigator's Brochure and the forms you will need to submit to your IRB. The second and third bullets under the Regulatory Forms section are the 2 consent forms in Word format; this is so you can modify them to comply with your institution's required wording. One is a consent to participate in the study and the other is a consent to draw blood, which is required for the first 100 patients registered on study.

Once URCC receives your IRB approval document and approved consent form, we will send you a supply of curcumin and a study initiation kit with blood draw and photography supplies and instructions.  You may begin accruing patients upon receipt of these supplies.

You will receive 1.0 credit per participant accrued.

EXCAP Amendments 4 and 5 ready PDF Print E-mail

Amendments 4 and 5 have been uploaded to the website and are ready for you to download and submit to your IRBs.

Amendment 4

The changes in Amendment 4 were discussed at the annual meeting in September and are the result of supplemental funding obtained by URCC to add actigraphy and to assess cytokines in the ongoing protocol.  These supplements have resulted in several changes to the protocol (sections 2.0, 6.0, 7.0 and 9.0), and changes to the daily diaries, Patient Contact Forms, Clinical Record Information, and consent form; all changes are outlined in a summary document included with the amendment.

Also included with this amendment are a Blood Procedures Operations Manual and Actigraphy Manual.  Additionally, detailed videos to supplement the manuals are located on the URCC website.  You will need to contact Jen Yates ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 585.275.6303) to schedule a phone call to update participating staff on the procedures for actigraphy and handling the blood samples prior to accruing to the amended protocol.


Once amendment 4 is approved, you will receive 1.5 credits for each new study participant accrued, an increase of 0.5 credits from the original protocol.


Amendment 5 is the result of CTEP’s CTCAE conversion plan, which mandates that each protocol mention CTCAE v. 4.0.  We were required to submit this amendment separately from Amendment 4.  You may submit both amendments to your IRB at the same time.
