Cancer Clinical Trials

University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center is an academic medical center and member of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center. We are one of only 51 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and a national leader in both patient care and cancer research. As a result, we offer earlier access to clinical trials that are an important part of curing cancer every day.

Clinical trials are research studies that are used to find better ways to diagnose and treat individuals with cancer. They are the final step in a long process that begins with research in a laboratory setting. When a new technology or medicine shows promising results in the initial research setting, many times the next step is to conduct what is commonly known as a clinical trial. Clinical trials are done to ensure these new approaches to diagnosis or treat cancer are safe and effective. Many successful treatments used today are the result of clinical trials.
