Clinical Trials

The St. Luke’s Cancer Network Participates in more than 70 Clinical Trials

Clinical trials offer patients access to the very latest in cancer care, while giving physicians and researchers the opportunity to study the effectiveness of new treatments.

The St. Luke's Cancer Network participates in more than 70 clinical trials, including ones testing new medications or combinations of medications and new surgery and clinical procedures. Eligible patients carefully review the criteria, potential benefits, risks and other considerations with their St. Luke's physicians and support staff before being enrolled in a clinical study.

The Cancer Network participates in studies sponsored by the National Cancer Institute through groups such as the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group, the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group, the Gynecological Oncology Group and the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group. In addition, St. Luke's participates in many other national and international cancer studies sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry.
