Clinical Trials

When it comes to your cancer care, the prostate center gives you more choices. We have several cancer clinical trials underway at any given time.
Clinical trials are research studies conducted with people who volunteer to take part. These studies evaluate new approaches to treat cancer.

You benefit by having access to new cancer treatments and options not otherwise available, in addition to the excellent care offered at the prostate center.
 

 

Experience matters

Our nationally ranked radiation oncologists are experts in clinical research and design. For us, staying at the forefront of cancer treatment means we develop innovative strategies that give us new insights about cancer. For you, being at the forefront of cancer care means access to these promising treatments and expert knowledge.

We offer you the latest advancements because we conduct the research. In doing so, we follow strict guidelines to protect you and to offer the best cancer treatment options for you. We encourage you to talk to your doctor about whether a clinical trial is right for you.
 

Patients come first

The Fox Chase Cancer Center’s Institutional Review Board conducts an in-depth review of all clinical trials at our center. This review ensures the protection of our volunteer clinical trial participants. Fox Chase was among the first institutions to earn national accreditation for its management and review of clinical trials
