Thanks to new methods of treatment and therapies, patients are surviving cancer more than ever. The physicians of Adventist Cancer Network are continually searching for new ways to defeat cancer by providing the best of university research in the community setting.
Our cancer specialists continue their involvement in clinical trials through the most nationally prominent academic medical centers and research organizations such as ECOG, GOG and CALGB. Adventist Cancer Network offers more than 75 research trials covering a wide-range of cancers and blood disorders.
A cancer clinical trial is a carefully designed and executed investigation of the effects of cancer drugs administered to people. The goal of the trials is to define the clinical efficacy and side effects of the substances. The U.S. government requires strict testing of all new cancer drugs prior to their approval for use.
