A word about research trials

A Word about Research Trials

Clinical Research Trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. These trials may use new drugs, new combinations of drugs, or other new treatments to see if they are safe and effective. When an oncologist develops your treatment plan, he investigates clinical trials to see if they could be a part of your plan.

“I’ve been coming to the Cancer Center for three years. The nurses are so nice and do a wonderful job of taking care of me. The thing that gives me most comfort is knowing that they scan my arm bracelet and check the labels so they are certain I am receiving the medicine I need. I am so pleased with the Cancer Center, my son came here when he needed treatment as well.”
