Cancer Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies in which people help doctors find ways to improve health and cancer care. Each study tries to answer scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat cancer. Learn more about the different types and phases of clinical trials.

Why should I participate in a clinical trial?

Today it is possible to enroll in a clinical trial as the first step in your treatment after a cancer diagnosis. There are literally hundreds of trials available across the country. In fact, many of our most effective treatments used today for breast, colon, rectal and childhood cancers are the result of recent successes in clinical trials. As a participant a patient has the opportunity to help further the cause for other cancer patients, and possibly be helped by the treatments they receive. Participation in a clinical trial is voluntary. 

Below is a listing current treatment clinical trials for cancer offered through the Genesis Cancer Care Institute and Iowa Cancer Specialists. See clinical trials offered by Hematology-Oncology Associates of the Quad-Cities, PC

Each trial below is linked to a complete description provided by the National Cancer Institute. If you need assistance with this process, contact us
