Tomorrow’s Treatments. Today.
Around the world, groundbreaking clinical trials offer new hope. And it’s happening now in Central California.
We’re working in partnership with UCSF to bring international clinical cancer trials to patients in the Central Valley – providing access to new treatments before they’re available to the public.
As a member of three large cooperative groups sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), we have access to treatments that give some patients more options without having to travel far from home or change doctors.
We offer clinical trials for cancers in breast, cervical/endometrial, lung, pancreatic, prostate, renal cell, colon, rectal, HCC and anaplastic glioma tumors. And our partners at the UCSF clinical research program are pursuing research opportunities in Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, multiple myeloma, Acute Myeloid Leukemia, metastatic non-small cell lung cancer and brain tumors.
One of the final stages of the cancer research process, clinical trials seek to determine whether promising approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment are safe and effective. And in so doing, researchers and patients alike are contributing to the body of knowledge in the fight against cancer.
If you‘re considering a clinical trial, we’ll explain the purpose of the trial, the expected benefits, anticipated side effects or risks as well as what will be expected of you. Even if you sign a consent form, you can leave a clinical trial at any time without penalty.
