Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that test whether new medical treatments, devices or strategies  are safe and effective.

People who volunteer for clinical trials play an active role in their own health care, often gain access to experimental treatments, and help others by improving and advancing medical care.

At Providence Cancer Center, our scientists and physicians work closely together to make clinical trials a regular part of cancer care. Patients may take part in studies initiated by our translational researchers at the Robert W. Franz Cancer Research Center in the Earle A. Chiles Research Institute, in addition to studies sponsored by the National Cancer Institute or pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

Our clinical trials team works directly with physicians to identify clinical trials appropriate for their patients’ specific stage of disease.

The goals of clinical research vary from trial to trial. Generally, they are designed to:

  • Improve prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of cancer
  • Discover whether a particular drug  or medical treatment is safe and effective
  • Advance the state of scientific and medical knowledge
  • Measure and improve the quality of life for patients and their families
