Ongoing research into hydatidiform mole is developing a growing body of knowledge about the condition. The growing body of data is leading to more effective diagnosis and treatments.
Clinical trials on hydatidiform mole examine:
- causes of the tumors
- refined testing for earlier diagnosis
- the course of the disease
- related factors such as age and genetics
In addition to the research and clinical trials on hydatidiform mole being conducted, doctors across the country record and share information on long-term aspects of the condition learned as they follow patients over a period of years. Together these resources have produced favorable outcomes for many women with the disease.
