We offer several clinical trials for multiple types of cancer and participate in as many as 50 to 100 clinical trials with partnering cancer centers. These clinical trials give our patients access to emerging treatment options right here in Spokane, eliminating the need to travel outside of the Inland Northwest for the latest in cancer treatment. The clinical trials also provide important information to help conquer cancer.
Before beginning treatment, you may want to consider participating in a clinical trial. Talk with your medical oncologist, surgical oncologist or radiation oncologist to determine if this is a good option for you.
What is a clinical trial?
Clinical trials are research studies that help determine the effectiveness of a new drug or treatment. Each clinical trial is designed to answer specific scientific questions and to help find potentially better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat cancer.
Why are clinical trials important?
Clinical trials are a vital part of the process in finding new cancer treatments and ultimately a cure for cancer. Without these research studies, many of the advances we see today in cancer detection, treatment and prevention would never have happened.
