Research & Clinical Trials - Coborn Cancer Center
Cancer clinical trials are research studies that focus on people diagnosed with cancer. The goal of these studies is to find better ways to treat, diagnose, and prevent cancer so that people can live better and longer. The studies also give us more information about preventing or reducing cancer risk in healthy people. Coborn Cancer Center supports and participates in many clinical research trials.
Participants in clinical trials receive the highest standard of care. Cancer clinical trials are approved by the National Cancer Institute. Patients volunteer to take part in clinical trials for a number of reasons, but most hope they will help themselves today and others in the future.
