Our Clinical Cancer Trials
Capital Health Cancer Center participates in many National Cancer Institute (NCI), university and pharmaceutical phase II and III clinical trials. Some studies lead to the discovery of new methods to detect and diagnose cancer, while others focus on innovative treatments before they become widely available.
Clinical trials offer patients the very latest in cancer care while giving physicians and researchers the opportunity to study the effectiveness of the treatment. Participation is entirely voluntary.
Our experienced oncologists and research nurses carefully review study criteria, potential benefits, risks, and other considerations with eligible patients for enrollment into a clinical study. Once enrolled, our Clinical Research Department staff carefully monitors patients throughout the research trial and is available to answer questions.
The National Cancer Institute has a brochure Taking Part in Cancer Treatment Research Studies to help you understand the details of clinical trials.
