Clinical trials are research studies involving people. Some trials test the safety and effectiveness of new cancer treatments. Others may test new procedures or approaches for cancer screening or prevention. Clinical trials follow very detailed and strict procedures for administering the new treatment or procedure and measuring its effects (both good and bad) on patients, compared to the standard approach. Clinical trials help improve existing treatment options for patients.
All improvements in cancer care were made possible because of clinical trials.
Clinical trials are an important step in making advances in cancer treatment. Our dedicated researchers and clinicians conduct hundreds of clinical trials in phases I, II, III and IV each year, leading to the development of new and better treatments. If you are a patient or a caregiver and would like to learn more about cancer clinical trials at the University of Chicago Medicine, call 1-855-702-8222 (adult trials) or 1-773-702-6808 (pediatric trials) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
