Balanced by our desire to provide spiritual and emotional
healing in addition to physical care, Penrose Cancer Center
actively participates in research programs and clinical trials to
help uncover the most advanced cancer treatment options and ensure
the best outcomes for our patients. As part of our commitment to
clinical research, we test a large number of treatment innovations
and new medications and have multiple
clinical trials in progress funded by the National Cancer
Institute (NCI), Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) and a number of pharmaceutical companies. Your
physician can best answer whether such a program is right for you and your
treatment goals followed by the assistance of a clinical research
nurse to help determine your eligibility.
Clinical trials help doctors find better ways to prevent,
screen, diagnose and treat disease including developing new and
effective medications to win the war against cancer. As a patient,
you have the power and choice to help fight that war by
contributing to the collective knowledge base.
