Cancer Clinical Trials and Research
Englewood Health is committed to providing state-of-the-art patient care. As part of that mission, our physician-investigators are actively researching new treatment options for our patients through clinical trials.
Visit our Clinical Research Center page to learn about open clinical trials.
Clinical trials study new, innovative ways to diagnose and treat cancer in patients. They are an important step in discovering new cancer treatments. Before a new therapy is used in people, it is thoroughly studied to ensure that it is both safe and effective. All advancements achieved in the care of people with cancer today are the result of clinical trials.
This clinical research effort provides you with access to the latest therapies. In addition to offering new biological, targeted, and immunotherapy drugs, we are working with institutions such as the National Cancer Institute to study the biology of cancer cells and understand what drugs will be the most effective in fighting your cancer.
A few things you should know about participating in a clinical trial:
- A nurse, research study assistant, or another member of your care team will clearly explain the study to you, what your role would be, and what to expect.
- Your participation in entirely voluntary. You are under no obligation to participate unless you choose to do so.
- You can withdraw from the study at any time.
- If you do choose to take part, we thank you. Clinical trials are vital for progress to be made against cancer. Your participation may help you, and it will definitely help people diagnosed with cancer in the future.
You may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial of a promising new treatment for your cancer. Ask your healthcare team if there are any clinical trials for which you might be eligible.
