Breast Cancer Clinical Trials
The treatments and methods that significantly improve breast cancer survival today all began with clinical trials, or research studies. We are involved in national clinical trials and research studies looking at new therapies and approaches for breast cancer and other cancers. Patients taking part in clinical trials may benefit by gaining access to new treatments before they are widely available.
Our breast cancer experts participate in clinical trials run by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Cancer Institute (NCI) and national cooperative cancer research groups including:
- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG)
- Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG)
- American College of Surgeons Oncology Group (ACOSOG)
Through our association with the Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU), we also have access to trials from leading breast cancer research groups through the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) and the National Cancer Institute of Canada (NCIC).
