Clinical Trials for Cancer Treatment
Clinical trials are research studies that people volunteer to join to evaluate new drugs, devices, or procedures. New, more effective, treatments for cancer are developed as a result of people having participated in clinical trials.
Most of the standard treatments used today were tested and shown to be effective through clinical research studies.
The Upstate Cancer Center is committed to providing the best and most advanced, comprehensive cancer care, including access to national clinical research studies.
