Cancer Clinical Trials
In partnership with the Kansas City Clinical Oncology Program, Northland Cancer Center offers
clinical trials for many types of cancers. Supported by the National
Cancer Institute and in affiliation with many major research centers
throughout the nation, this program includes both treatment and cancer
control trials. Northland Cancer Center also
assists in research focused on developing and improving tumor markers
for detecting cancer and looking into genetic links to cancer.
Benefits of Clinical Trials
Clinical trials benefit the patient by providing
new treatment modalities to help them fight their cancer and the
knowledge that they are helping in the research to manage this disease.
These trials support the community and advance medical science by
providing much needed information about new treatments and tests.
Our clinical trials are routinely assessed for
safety and efficacy. A research nurse is on campus Monday - Friday
to work with trial patients and oncologists.
