Clinical trials are scientific studies designed to add to medical knowledge and help improve the treatment of other patients in the future. They often involve testing a new medication to determine how effective and safe it is. Sometimes this allows early access to promising treatments still under development. Participation in a clinical trial is optional. If you do not wish to participate in a clinical trial, rest assured that we will treat you based on the best known current standard of care.
We partner with the Renown Cancer Institute and the Saint Mary’s Center for Cancer to offer dozens of trials locally, and new trials are opening on a regular basis. If we do not have a trial appropriate for your situation, we can help look for one somewhere else in the country.
