Lung / Esophageal / Thoracic Cancer Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is one of the final steps in a long and careful cancer research process that is looking for better ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat cancer. Clinical trials test new medical approaches in patients with cancer, and are important to developing new treatments for cancer. Many of the "standard treatments" that patients with cancer receive today were developed based on the results of previous clinical trials.

The following is a list of clinical trials with which this cancer care program is currently involved. Talk to your doctor to find out if a clinical trial is right for you.
