St. Mary's Clinical Trials -
Finding Better Ways to Treat Cancer
Clinical trials test new treatments in people with cancer. The goal of this research is to find better ways to treat cancer and help cancer patients. Clinical research associates are dedicated to matching patients with appropriate clinical trials and following their progress through those trials.
New treatments tested include:
- New drugs
- New approaches to surgery or radiation therapy
- New combinations of treatments
- New methods, such as gene therapy
At St. Mary's, the physicians offer National Cancer Institute-sponsored clinical trials through the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG), Hoosier Oncology Group (HOG), Sarah Cannon Cancer Center in Nashville, TN, University of Nebraska, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, and many others. Patients receive the same cutting-edge treatment as major university cancer treatment centers, while remaining close to home near family and friends.
