Title: VISmodegib for ORBital and periocular basal cell carcinoma (VISORB)
IRB Number: HUM00082579

Status: Open/Enrolling

Basal cell carcinoma (BCCA) is the most common human cancer, affecting approximately 750,000 Americans per year.  BCCAs are generally treated by local excision, which in many cases is associated with scarring and potential disfigurement.  Vismodegib is a medical treatment for BCCA, taken orally, and has been recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The purpose of this study is to follow the treatment course for orbital BCCA with Vismodegib and record medical information in order to determine whether treatment with Vismodegib improves the chance of maintaining functional vision and/or functional tear drainage system.
