Current Clinical Trials
Doctors around the world are constantly engaged in researching new ways to fight cancer. When a new treatment or drug (“novel agent”) appears to be effective, it must be used by patients in tests (“trials”) before long-term study has proved it to be reliable. Institute oncologists are always up to date on the latest research and drugs being developed in the medical community. If traditional treatments have not been effective for a patient, we may suggest trying one of these promising new drugs. There are both advantages and risks to participating in a trial of a novel agent, which your Institute oncologist will discuss with you.
