Cancer Clinical Trials
At Cone Health Cancer Center, you may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial that tests new ways to detect, diagnose, or treat cancer, or to manage side effects or symptoms.
Leaders in Cancer Research
Because Cone Health is a member of the Southeast Clinical Oncology Research Consortium (SCOR), the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center Network and the Duke Cancer Network, you and your care team gain access to a wide variety of trials close to home. At any time, you’ll find approximately 40 open trials at Cone Health Cancer Center.
In 2015, the Conquer Cancer Foundation of the American Society of Clinical Oncology gave us its Clinical Trials Participation Award in recognition of our commitment to improving cancer care by providing high-quality clinical trials in a community-based setting.
Rest assured that all clinical trials available at Cone Health have been reviewed by their sponsoring agency or organization, an institutional review board (IRB), and Cancer Center physicians, research nurses, and pharmacists to ensure they’re ethical and safe.
However, like all treatments, clinical trials have potential benefits and risks. Before deciding to join a clinical trial, talk with your care team and your loved ones about how it may affect you.
Visit our health library to learn more about clinical trials, including why they’re important and how they work.
