Clinical Trial Participation and Research
A clinical trial is a type of research study that tests how well new medical approaches work in people. These studies test new methods of screening, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a disease.
Clinical Trials are at the forefront of advancing the field of hematology and oncology, and they provide patients more treatment options. Clinical trials exist to improve upon the current state of medicine and set new standards of care. We are also able to enroll patients in observational studies, which are when patients are observed, or certain outcomes are measured during routine medical treatment with no specific intervention. No attempt is made to affect the outcome (for example, no treatment is given).
Historically, clinical trials were inaccessible to many in the community, as they were mostly offered at larger academic centers. We are proud to be able to offer several clinical trials for our patients at our clinics, close to home. Our comprehensive research team is specially trained to recognize the needs of patients undergoing trials and guide them through the process.
We are currently offering trials for the following diagnoses:
- Urothelial Cancer
- Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma
- Endometrial Cancer
- Triple Negative Breast Cancer
- High Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
- Colorectal Cancer
- Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Multiple Myeloma
- Relapse/Refractory Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
