Cancer Clinical Trials

New Methods In Fighting Cancer

Clinical trials are carefully designed research studies that evaluate the efficacy of a new drug, a new drug regimen or combination, or a new means of treatment delivery for cancer treatment. Studies are also conducted for the development of new methods of screening, prevention and diagnosis.

The SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center's oncology research program allows patients to access the latest cancer treatment in their own community. Our program is affiliated with the University of Wisconsin, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG), and the National Cancer Institute's Cancer Trials Support Unit. We participate in National Cooperative Group trials and pharmaceutical-sponsored trials for the treatment and prevention of all forms of cancer.
