Adult Cancer Prevention and Cancer Control Clinical Trials

Cancer clinical trials are research studies for developing better ways of detecting, treating, and eventually preventing cancer. By taking part in a clinical trial, you are among the first to receive new research treatments before they are widely available. Your participation in a clinical trial will influence the future direction of cancer care.

If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, consult with your physician. Please note: clinical trials are not risk free. Patients must explore the options that are best for their individuals needs with the help of their physician.
